With less than two weeks to go for WWE’s Hell in a Cell pay per view match, the sports entertainment company has finally started revealing their cards for the mega event. On Monday night’s RAW, Bobby Lashley and Drew McIntyre signed the contract for their upcoming match and in the process made the event official. Meanwhile, Alexa Bliss was focused on Shayna Baszler following their confrontation last week. Five tag teams battled it out in a special Battle Royal match to determine the number one team for Omos and AJ Styles’ Raw Tag Team Championships.
Here we take a look at everything that happened on Monday night:
