With only six days until Money in the Bank live on pay-per-view and the WWE Network, WWE rolled into the nation's capital, Washington, D.C., for the June 23 episode of Monday Night Raw.
After it was revealed last Tuesday afternoon that there would be a second Money in the Bank match for the guaranteed title opportunity and that Seth Rollins would be the first man entered into the match, the focus turned to filling out the rest of the field Monday night.
Kofi Kingston, Jack Swagger, Bad News Barrett, Dolph Ziggler, Rob Van Dam and Dean Ambrose joined Rollins, ensuring that the second-most important Ladder match on Sunday's card has the opportunity to steal the show.
The most important bout this weekend was heavily hyped throughout the show, particularly in the main event slot, as the three babyfaces involved battled the four heels in a rematch from Friday night SmackDown. While the match was nothing fans have not seen before, the revelation that Kane will now be involved in Sunday's title bout changed things dramatically.
WWE said goodbye to its longest-tenured female performer (outside of Stephanie McMahon) Monday night when Vickie Guerrero made her final appearance for the company. Just when it appeared as though she would be humiliated and disregarded on her way out the door, she got one over on Stephanie and drew one of the biggest face reactions of her career as a result.
With attention almost exclusively on Sunday's program, WWE presented one of the better episodes of its weekly flagship show in recent weeks.
