WWE has made a pair of new announcements for Monday's episode of Raw.

There will be a face-to-face segment with Kofi Kingston and MVP on Monday's Raw. It will be part of the build to Kingston challenging for Bobby Lashley's WWE Championship at next month's Money in the Bank pay-per-view

Raw Women's Champion Rhea Ripley will team with Mandy Rose & Dana Brooke in a six-woman tag match against Charlotte Flair & WWE Women's Tag Team Champions Natalya & Tamina on Monday's Raw. Ripley is defending her Raw Women's Championship against Charlotte at Money in the Bank.

This past Monday's edition of Raw was headlined by Lashley defeating Xavier Woods in a non-title Hell in a Cell match. After the match, Lashley attacked Woods and MVP locked the Hell in a Cell cage so that Kingston wouldn't be able to save his tag team partner. Kingston screamed for Lashley to let Woods go as Lashley had Woods in the Hurt Lock against the cage.

Lashley retained his WWE Championship against Drew McIntyre in a Hell in a Cell match at Sunday's Hell in a Cell PPV.

Ripley and Charlotte also faced off in a title match at Hell in a Cell. Charlotte defeated Ripley by disqualification -- but Ripley kept her Raw Women's Championship. Ripley intentionally got disqualified by hitting Charlotte with the top of the announce table.

Here's the updated lineup for Monday's Raw:

  • Last chance Money in the Bank qualifying match: AJ Styles vs. Randy Orton vs. Drew McIntyre
  • Kofi Kingston and MVP will go face-to-face
  • Rhea Ripley, Mandy Rose & Dana Brooke vs. Charlotte Flair, Natalya & Tamina
  • Strap match: Jaxson Ryker vs. Elias
