• New Champion Crowned On Tonight’s WWE RAW
On tonight’s episode of RAW, MVP came out with his Hurt Business faction and said he thinks United States Champion Apollo Crews and his catering buddies, Mustafa Ali, Ricochet, & Cedric Alexander, are behind RETRIBUTION.
Apollo came out and denied that claim, and said MVP is just making excuses for losing to him.
Apollo Crews vs. Shelton Benjamin then got set up, with the stipulation being that Bobby Lashley & Shelton Benjamin will be banned from ringside at SummerSlam if Crews wins this match.
Crews defeated Benjamin and Lashley & Benjamin will now be banned from ringside at SummerSlam.
During the match, the ninjas and R-Truth got involved as Truth was getting chased.
After the match, Benjamin pinned Truth to win the 24/7 Championship once again.
