Last night's Raw ended with Braun Strowman standing tall ahead of WrestleMania Backlash.
The main event of last night's go-home show saw WWE Champion Bobby Lashley face Drew McIntyre in a non-title match, but it ended in a disqualification when Strowman attacked McIntyre. MVP had approached Strowman earlier in the night and suggested that Strowman could help take out McIntyre so that the WWE Championship match at WrestleMania Backlash could become one-on-one.
Strowman helped Lashley up after attacking McIntyre, but Strowman then laid out Lashley as well. Strowman gave McIntyre and Lashley multiple powerslams, including giving Lashley one through the barricade.
Last week's Raw had ended with McIntyre standing tall over Lashley and Strowman. Lashley defeated Strowman in last week's main event after Strowman was distracted by McIntyre.
Lashley is defending his WWE Championship against McIntyre and Strowman in a triple threat match at WrestleMania Backlash this Sunday.
The Raw Women's Championship will also be on the line in a triple threat match at WrestleMania Backlash. Rhea Ripley will defend her title against Asuka and Charlotte Flair.
Last night, Ripley defeated Asuka in a non-title singles match that Charlotte had gotten Sonya Deville to make. Asuka, Mandy Rose & Dana Brooke defeated Charlotte, Nia Jax & Shayna Baszler earlier in the show, but Charlotte dropped Asuka with a big boot after the match. Alexa Bliss and her doll Lilly watched that six-woman tag match from the stage. Bliss said they were keeping their eyes on someone.
Asuka pinned Baszler in the six-woman tag match after Bliss and Lilly were apparently able to make Baszler's leg give out leading into the finish.
A new WrestleMania Backlash match was also confirmed last night. Damian Priest will face The Miz in a lumberjack match at Sunday's PPV. Priest got to pick the stipulation for the match after defeating John Morrison last night.
