The return of Elias, along with a Money in the Bank qualifying match is set for next week’s Raw in Lincoln, Nebraska.

Becky Lynch will face Asuka for a qualifying spot in the women’s Money in the Bank ladder match, which will take place on July 2 in Las Vegas. Elias will also be making a return to Raw next week to hold a concert.

On tonight’s Raw, Lynch destroyed her scheduled opponent, Dana Brooke, saying Brooke could keep the 24/7 Championship. Lynch promised to win the Money in the Bank match and went to attack Brooke again when Asuka came out for the save. The two have continued to feud in the weeks since WrestleMania Backlash, where the two lost a three-way match for the Raw Women’s Championship to champion Bianca Belair.

Also on tonight’s show, Ezekiel defeated Kevin Owens by count out after Owens threw a fit outside of the ring, yelling at the announcers that Elias and Ezekiel were the same person. After the match, Ezekiel said he had contacted Elias and he would be coming to Raw next week. Owens wasn't happy and called Ezekiel a liar.
