WWE RAW Results: Bobby Lashley’s open challenge was answered by Kofi Kingston after his unwillingness to fight Drew McIntyre and Braun Strowman.

The act started with Bobby Lashley walking to the ring with five women. He was welcomed by MVP and a short clip of his win from Sunday was also shown. MVP then announced that Braun Strowman and Drew McIntyre are injured and would not be able to attend the event. And just when Lashley was about to ask for an open challenge, McIntyre marched to the ring unharmed. MVP then revealed that McIntyre and Strowman are exempted from an open challenge. Lashley then went after McIntyre, who ducked and then sent him out of the ring.

Here’s a look at everything that happened on Monday’s Raw:
