Previously on the Best and Worst of Raw: It was time for Money in the Bank, at which every Raw Champion either retained or didn’t defend, and Brock Lesnar won the men’s Money in the Bank briefcase. They already can’t decide if they wanna call him “Money in the Beast,” or, “Beast in the Bank.”

Worst: Brock Lesnar Is Headed To Jeddah [Country Redacted]
This week’s major A-story is that Brock Lesnar won the Money in the Bank briefcase, which he’s already turned into a hilarious meme by pretending it’s a boombox.
The story they’re trying to tell is that Brock Lesnar is already this nigh-unstoppable force of nature who gets whatever he wants, so adding the Money in the Bank briefcase to that has completely overpowered him. He knows it, we know it, the champs know it. He’s instantly able to lord it over the heads of not only the Universal Champion but the WWE Champion as well, and they’re both so immediately shook by it that they open Raw trying to bait him into fighting one or both of them on a level playing field tonight. Brock doesn’t come to wrestling shows to wrestle, though, he comes to get paid, so he pulls his usual move and does nothing.
Two pretty lame things here:
- Heyman’s burn on Seth Rollins “waiting around for seven hours at WrestleMania for your girlfriend to main-event the show that you’ve dreamt of main-eventing” gets a big “oooh” out of the Married … With Children studio audience because it’s a shoot, brother, but Rollins did technically main-event WrestleMania 31 and end the show as champion, and who the hell wouldn’t want to date Becky Lynch and stick around to support her in a history-making moment at the job you both work
- Lesnar’s already been announced for Saudi Arabia and the show that’s BIGGER and EVEN BETTER than WrestleMania if you’re an asshole, so assuming he’s still working a Brock Lesnar schedule, nothing of consequence involving Brock is going down until then
