Riddle Delivers Huge RKO In Battle Royal Match To Qualify For Money In The Bank Ladder Match
Riddle overcame some apparent subterfuge from The Miz to seal his spot in the coveted Money in the Bank ladder match.
We're one step closer to knowing which male WWE superstars will be competing in the Money in the Bank ladder match slated for Saturday.
Seth Rollins, Drew McIntyre, Sheamus, Omos and Sami Zayn all had their tickets punched heading into Monday Night Raw, which featured a battle royal between some of the biggest WWE Superstars to determine one of the coveted final spots. Among the plethora of competitors on hand were AJ Styles, The Miz, Riddle, Rey and Dominik Mysterio, Shinsuke Nakamura, Dolph Ziggler, Jinder Mahal, T-Bar, Dilsher Shanky, Akira Tozawa, Shelton Benjamin, R-Truth, Ricochet, and Veer Mahaan.
And it was Riddle standing in the end.
Mahaan actually appeared to be winning the match when it started. In fact, he nearly eliminated Riddle. But then the Mysterios father-son team took him out with a double 619.
And from there, chaos ensued until only two men remained: Riddle and Styles. Or so it seemed. You see, The Miz had exited the ring voluntarily earlier in the match, nursing an apparent leg injury. But when the match got down to the final two, he experienced a miraculous recovery, sneaking up on Styles, who was poised on the apron, and pulling him down to ringside.
But The Miz wouldn't get rewarded for his seeming shenanigans, as Riddle executed a huge RKO to take him out and seal the victory.
That leaves one final spot to be determined for the men's Money in the Bank ladder match, which will feature seven Superstars fighting tooth and nail to ascend one of the many ladders that will be placed around the ring and grab the Money in the Bank briefcase, containing a guaranteed title shot that can be cashed in at a time and place of the holder's choosing.
