Monday’s WWE RAW show featured Seth Rollins making a surprise return appearance and accepting a challenge for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship at Money in the Bank 2024.

Following the Clash at the Castle recap video at the start of the show, Rollins music played and made his surprise return to WWE. Rollins made his way to the ring and after some cheers and singing by the crowd, Rollins talked about wanting to get back his WWE World Heavyweight Championship. Rollins then looked up at the Men’s and Women’s Money in the Bank briefcases that were hanging up in the air and stated that he knows how to climb up a ladder well and is quite familiar with how the contract works. Rollins stated that this the fastest way to get back for him to get back in the mix for the World Heavyweight title.

Before Rollins could continue, Damian Priest’s music interrupted and made his way to the ring. Priest stated that he is not being sarcastic and wanted to come out here to welcome Rollins back. After some more words of praise towards Rollins, Priest stated that he has been wanting some face-to-face time with him because he wanted to tell Rollins that he wanted to cash in the Money in the Bank contract on him. After some more words by Priest, Rollins responded talking about Priest having a long weekend and “almost lost a leg in Scotland.” Rollins then talked about them being a lot alike over how they both made their names in groups, Priest made his name in Judgement Day while he made his name in the greatest group of all time, The Shield. Rollins stated that they both held the Money in the Bank contract for a long time and cashed in foe their first World title at WrestleMania. Rollins stated that the one thing that separates them is that at some point, Rollins grew a set. Rollins stated that he wants to be the greatest of all time and to have that legacy, he has to stand on hos own two feet. Rollins asked Priest ” what kind of champion does he want to be? What does Priest want his legacy to be in this industry? Does he want to be the greatest of all time or a footnote in the Judgment Day?” Priest responded stating that it is a fair question but he wants to remind Rollins of something and that he was Rollins first challenger for the title. Priest stated at the time, Rollins beat him because Rollins was better than him but times have changed. After some more words, Priest issued a challenge for his World title at Money in the Bank against Rollins. Rollins responded asking if this is a trap, which Priest responded back stating that this is not a trap since Judgement Day does not know he is out here. Priest asked again if Rollins wants a shot at his title and after some “Yes” chants by the crowd, Rollins accepted and stating that as long as he is around here, this show will always and forever be “Monday Night Rollins” before walking away.

In a follow-up segment, this match was made official for Money in the Bank 2024.

Before McIntyre could say anything, a “CM Punk” chant broke out in the crowd leading to McIntyre responding stating “CM Punk …” but was too angry to continue. This led to the crowd continuing their “CM Punk” chants and McIntyre attempted to get through with what he wanted to say but was unable to continue after saying Punk’s name again. McIntyre stated that he can’t do this anymore and “screw this company, I quit.” McIntyre then walked out of the ring to the back.
