World Wrestling Entertainment invaded Lexington's Rupp Arena on Monday for its weekly Monday Night Raw telecast on USA Network.

The night served as the final buildup for the company's Raw brand wrestlers before Sunday's Money in the Bank pay-per-view, when eight wrestlers will face off in each of two Money in the Bank ladder matches. The first to climb a ladder and grab a hanging briefcase that has a contract for a title shot inside wins. One match is for the company's Raw brand and the other for SmackDown.

The SmackDown wrestlers bring their action to Louisville's Freedom Hall on Tuesday night for a taping of SmackDown, which airs Friday on MyNetworkTV affiliates, including MyTVQ2 available on digital channel 36.2 in Lexington.
