Riddle Wins Battle Royal To Replace Randy Orton In Money In The Bank Qualifying Match

Randy Orton was scheduled to compete in a part in a Last Chance triple threat for a spot in the Money in the Bank Ladder Match. Instead, Orton was forced to miss the match this week on WWE RAW, so his spot in the triple threat was up for grabs in a battle royal to kick off the show.

Drew Gulak, Shelton Benjamin, Humberto Carrillo, Damian Priest, Jinder Mahal, Akira Tozawa, Angel Garza, Mansoor, Mustafa Ali, and more stars participated in this chaotic match. Benjamin quickly eliminated Gulak, and the bout embodied the “every an for himself” spirit. Mustafa Ali betrayed Mansoor, and in the middle of the chaos, the WWE 24/7 Championship also changed hands multiple times.

In the end, Damian Priest and Matt Riddle were the last men standing. Riddle slipped out of a sleeper from Priest and dropped him onto the apron. “The Original Bro” then blasted Priest with a knee and eliminated him to earn a spot in tonight’s Last Chance qualifying match for WWE Money in the Bank.
