WWE RAW Results (5/7): Fallout From Backlash, MITB Qualifiers Begin, More!

On how Styles and Nakamura will settle their heated rivalry:

The bad blood between AJ Styles and Shinsuke Nakamura reached new heights (or, more to the point, new lows) in their harrowing WWE Championship No Disqualification Match at WWE Backlash. When the two Superstars kicked each other below the belt in the heat of the moment, neither were able to answer the count, and their match was left without a winner.

How will SmackDown General Manager Paige address the unfinished business between the two bitter rivals? Or will they take matters in their own hands?

On Jeff Hardy taking on The Miz in a MITB Qualifying Match:

After failing to recapture the Intercontinental Championship from Seth Rollins at WWE Backlash, The Miz announced that he will compete in a Money in the Bank Qualifying Match tonight on SmackDown LIVE. His opponent will be none other than United States Champion Jeff Hardy, fresh off his exciting pay-per-view victory over Randy Orton.

Will The A-Lister have what it takes to overcome The Charismatic Enigma and earn an opportunity at another Money in the Bank contract on June 17?
