The July 22 2019 edition of WWE Raw, out of Amalie Arena in Tampa, Florida, just wrapped up. We’ve got the WWE Raw results, as well as our overall thoughts on the show, for you to check out below. Let us know what you thought about episode #1365 of WWE Raw by tweeting us, @TheRumbleRamble.
The Doctor is In
THE GOAT IS IN THE BUILDING.@JohnCena KICKS OFF #RAWReunion LIVE on @USA_Network! pic.twitter.com/NcpeeCkJCW— WWE (@WWE) July 23, 2019
None other than the legendary John Cena kicked off Raw Reunion, giving a rundown of who would be appearing on the show before having a brief rap battle with The Usos.
John Cena turned to leave, but Jimmy and Jey stopped him, saying they were sure he’d want to stick around for their father, Rikishi. The Usos and John Cena prepared to do the Too Cool dance with Rikishi but before the music hit, The Revival and D-Von Dudley made their entrances.
Backstage, Jimmy Hart was shown having a conversation with Hulk Hogan. All in all, a crazy fun start to a star-studded episode of Raw.
The Revival vs. The Usos
You know how The @WWEUsos love to FLYYYYYYY! #RawReunion pic.twitter.com/zqMXCj8MJY— WWE Universe (@WWEUniverse) July 23, 2019
With Devon Dudley and Rikishi in their respective corners, The Revival and The Usos set out to prove to their role models that they were the top guys of the WWE Tag Divison. Also, Booker T was at the announce table, because why not?
The Revival got the early advantage, Scott Dawson taunting Jey Uso with his own bandana. When Jimmy Uso got the hot tag, however, he turned things around quickly for his team, gaining momentum as he threw strikes at Dash before landing on Dawson with a crossbody.
Dawson got a near fall on Jimmy and Dash threw Jey from the ring, so D-Von Dudley considered giving his new friends some help, but he was stopped by Rikishi.
Dawson allowed himself to get a little too distracted by the interaction, opening the door for a superkick and a splash from The Usos. At least they had D-Von to comfort them after the loss.
Winner: The Usos
Santino Shows Off His Cobra
That #247Championship is doing strange things to @RonKillings…#RawReunion @CarmellaWWE pic.twitter.com/UQfwzWvGtN— WWE Universe (@WWEUniverse) July 23, 2019
Backstage, Santino Marella and his cobra were having a good time with Alicia Fox, Dana Brooke, Kaitlyn, and Torrie Wilson when Drew McIntyre broke up the party.
In another area, R-Truth was interviewed by Charly Caruso regarding his Comic-Con appearance, where both Hurricane and Drake Maverick tried to take his title.
Just then, Renee, Drake Maverick’s wife, stepped onto the scene, distracting Carmella and Truth long enough for Maverick to sneak up from behind and pin Truth for the title.
The two couples ran out of the frame and Godfather stepped into it, dancing with Charly as Drake Maverick’s music hit.
Drew McIntyre vs. Cedric Alexander
HOW COULD YOU, @DMcIntyreWWE? #RawReunion pic.twitter.com/iDbguQVW2F— WWE (@WWE) July 23, 2019
Tired of Cedric Alexander making a mockery of him, Drew McIntyre met Cedric with a boot to the face as he made his way down the ramp. Cedric Alexander put up a fight for a moment but was ultimately overpowered by McIntyre, who left him lying in a heap near the ring.
24/7 Championship Madness
HE’S @realboogey, and HE’S COMIN’ TO GETCHA!#RawReunion @WWEMaverick pic.twitter.com/ghsw2tEiyD— WWE Universe (@WWEUniverse) July 23, 2019
Drake Maverick was attempting a quick escape, but when he opened his suitcase to stow away his title, he found it full of worms. The Boogeyman appeared behind him, and though he didn’t bother with the championship, Pat Patterson did.
Disgusted with Drake’s cowardice, Pat Patterson stomped him into the ground and took the 24/7 Championship.

The Viking Raiders vs. Kurt Hawkins and Zack Ryder
Three words:— WWE Universe (@WWEUniverse) July 23, 2019
JOIN. THE. RAID. @Erik_WWE @Ivar_WWE #VikingRaiders pic.twitter.com/2DjsMQLCWW
Announced by Lillian Garcia and with Christian at the announce table, Kurt Hawkins and Zack Ryder faced the insurmountable team of Erik and Ivar, The Viking Raiders.
Hawkins and Ryder got a surprising amount of offense against the Raiders, and by that I mean they got about 10 seconds of shine before being completely demolished.
The Viking Raiders strike again.
Winner: The Viking Raiders
Raw Reunion Party Room
Guess what he said.#RawReunion @RealMikeBennett pic.twitter.com/g2cinY8Sbq— WWE (@WWE) July 23, 2019
In the Raw Reunion party room, Jimmy Hart and Santino Marella were shown again partying with the ladies when Mike Kanellis was shown talking to Eve Torres, which Maria Kanellis seemed less than happy about.
Eric Bischoff walked in to offer Mike and Maria a spot on SmackDown Live, which didn’t stop Maria from screaming at Mike in front of everyone, causing Ron Simmons to grab Jimmy Hart’s megaphone and yell “Damn” in Mike’s face.
Gerald Briscoe took the 24/7 Championship from Pat Patterson, seemingly while Pat napped backstage, but was quickly relieved of the title by Kelly Kelly, who became the first-ever female 24/7 Champion.
Two Samoan Joes
Say something about @WWERomanReigns‘ family? Expect a fight.#RawReunion @SamoaJoe pic.twitter.com/nehjOgNfyt— WWE (@WWE) July 23, 2019
Samoa Joe came to the ring to rain on everyone’s parade, shaming WWE and the crowd for producing/enjoying a show like Raw Reunion.
Joe then brought up Rikishi, which Roman Reigns did not appreciate, as he came down to have some words with Joe. Roman and Samoa Joe went back and forth verbally for a minute or two, but Joe, of course, escalated things to violence, beating Roman down inside and outside of the ring.
With one Superman Punch, however, Roman Reigns was back in the fight. This angered Joe, but he initially refused to compete because he knew the crowd wanted a match between him and Roman.
But when Roman called him a coward, he had a change of heart.
Samoa Joe vs. Roman Reigns
SPEED. POWER. @SamoaJoe has it all.#RawReunion @WWERomanReigns pic.twitter.com/eTvD0UMBqE— WWE (@WWE) July 23, 2019
Angered to the point of blind rage, Samoa Joe didn’t allow Roman Reigns a single second of offense before pummeling him. When Joe failed to get a quick victory, he only became more vicious, launching Roman out of the ring by his waist before diving on top of him.
Joe prepared for a second dive, but Roman was able to get out of the way, sending Joe crashing to the floor and turning the tables in his favor. Roman Reigns ran toward Joe for a spear but was caught and thrown to the mat.
Samoa Joe tried to lock in a Coquina Clutch, but Roman shook him off, shoving him into the ropes and hitting him with a spear, winning the match.
Winner: Roman Reigns
Miz TV: Seth Rollins
“At #SummerSlam, I will face @BrockLesnar with the #UniversalTitle on the line, and @BrockLesnar WILL LOSE.” – @WWERollins #RawReunion pic.twitter.com/mFnO7cVa8q— WWE (@WWE) July 23, 2019
The Miz welcomed his guest for the evening, former Universal Champion Seth Rollins, to join him in the ring and wasted no time pushing his buttons.
Miz showed Rollins footage from his loss to Brock Lesnar, but Rollins was unfazed. He said that he would get the title back because Brock Lesnar was merely a Seth Rollins wannabe.
Paul Heyman appeared on the big screen to throw some insults at Rollins, but again, The Kingslayer was having none of it, threatening to stomp Heyman’s head through the stage when he came out to lob insults in person.
Clearly feeling on top of the world, Rollins went on a rant about defeating The Beast at Summerslam, then challenged AJ Styles to a match.
Sami Zayn Hates Legends
“When I was General Manager of #Raw, if we had a problem, we’d settle it in the ring.”@RealKurtAngle comes through! Looks like @SamiZayn and @reymysterio are headed into battle NEXT on #RawReunion! pic.twitter.com/rQAbPnxF9x— WWE (@WWE) July 23, 2019
Like Samoa Joe, Sami Zayn was less than impressed by the Raw Reunion festivities and crashed the party room to tell Charly Caruso so. Rey Mysterio attempted to calm him down, reminding him to be humble around so many legends, but Sami wasn’t listening, so Kurt Angle intervened, telling the two they should settle things in the ring.
More 24/7 Shenanigans
Wait a minute…@RealMelina‘s a referee?! @DIVACANDICEM is the NEW #247Champion! #RawReunion pic.twitter.com/Pq2mMVlqqf— WWE (@WWE) July 23, 2019
Kelly Kelly was excitedly showing Melina, Candice Michelle, and Naomi her new 24/7 Championship when Melina revealed that she had just gotten her license – to be a referee.
Candice Michelle pinned Kelly Kelly for the title but lost it to Alundra Blayze almost immediately.
Later, Alundra Blayze came to the announce table to throw the title in a trash can. Before she did, however, Ted DiBiase walked out to buy the Championship from her because everybody’s got a price.
Rey Mysterio vs. Sami Zayn
.@SamiZayn‘s got an ARMY after him!#RawReunion @ShaneHelmsCom @TheRealRVD @RealKurtAngle @_SgtSlaughter pic.twitter.com/gZQOZM7B3R— WWE Universe (@WWEUniverse) July 23, 2019
Coach sat as a guest announcer as Rey Mysterio and Sami Zayn “settled things” in the ring. Sami Zayn, having the obvious size advantage, took control of the match easily.
Rey Mysterio began to pick up steam, going for the 619 to take Zayn down for good, but Zayn slid out of the ring, giving up on the match. Or so he thought.
As Sami walked back up the ramp, he was impeded by RVD, Sargeant Slaughter, Hurricane, and Kurt Angle, forcing him back into the ring to catch the 619 that Rey had waiting.
Winner: Rey Mysterio
Angelo Dawkins Makes Some New Friends
Hangin’ out with @TherealRVD a little too much there, @AngeloDawkins?#RawReunion #StreetProfits @MontezFordWWE pic.twitter.com/rq1tK1uv1U— WWE Universe (@WWEUniverse) July 23, 2019
As usual, The Street Profits had a hilarious backstage segment. This time, Montez Ford was standing alone and approached by Angelo Dawkins, who said he had been hanging out with RVD in the party lounge.
Montez Ford was somewhere between drooling and crying as Angelo told him all about his adventures with the other legends while Montez had somehow completely missed out.
AJ Styles vs. Seth Rollins
#TheOC‘s got nothin’ on these OGs.#RawReunion @WWERollins @TripleH @ShawnMichaels @WWERoadDogg @TheRealXPac @RealKevinNash @SCOTTHALLNWO pic.twitter.com/HBZ2B4vB5c— WWE (@WWE) July 23, 2019
Flanked by Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson, AJ Styles came to the ring to make Seth Rollins eat his words, and possibly Styles’ fist.
The two struggled for dominance, caught in a stalemate until Rollins was thrown from the ring. But just as The Club was closing in on him, DX (Shawn Michaels and Triple H) came down to take up arms against Styles, Gallows, and Anderson.
With the ringside numbers evened out, Seth Rollins had a much better chance of defeating The Phenomenal One. Powered up by Triple H and Shawn’s presence, Rollins prepared for the Curb Stomp, but his legs were swept by Gallows and Anderson.
At this, all 6 men were in the ring, The Club offering a Too Sweet to DX, who responded with a crotch chop, causing a brawl to break out.
The Club armed themselves with steel chairs, but the remaining members of DX weren’t about to let Triple H and Shawn Michaels take a beating, so Road Dogg, X Pac, Kevin Nash, and Scott Hall made their way down to join in.
Then all of Seth Rollins dreams came true at once, as, surrounded by his childhood heroes, he got to give the “we got two words for ya” to The Club.
Mick Foley’s Speech is Foiled
The #MandibleClaw on @RealMickFoley?!— WWE Universe (@WWEUniverse) July 23, 2019
THIS @WWEBrayWyatt is truly a nightmare come to life. #RawReunion pic.twitter.com/F9UP4fe8YH
While Mick Foley was making his way to the ring, Drake Maverick was beating Ted DiBiase down in a limousine and leaving with the 24/7 Championship.
Drake Maverick and the gaggle of 24/7 Championship contenders sprinted through the arena while Mick was mid-appreciation speech, and poor Mick couldn’t catch a break, because things only got worse when they were gone.
Mick began to show highlights from his career when the screen went black, the lights went out, and The Fiend’s eerie sound effects began to play.
The Fiend put the Mandible Claw on Foley, laying him out in the ring before staring into the camera with his “hurt” glove to his ear.
A Moment of Bliss: Becky Lynch
WELL THAT DIDN’T TAKE LONG.#RawReunion @BeckyLynchWWE @NatbyNature pic.twitter.com/YD9gD74gWU— WWE Universe (@WWEUniverse) July 23, 2019
Becky Lynch had just sat down for her interview with Alexa Bliss (and Nikki Cross) when Natalya came to the stage, demanding that Becky say whatever she planned to say about her to her face.
The Man had no problem with this whatsoever, insulting Natalya directly to her face, igniting a brawl between the two women while Alexa and Nikki backed away to safety with their coffees.
Shortly after, Drake Maverick raced toward an awaiting limousine with the 24/7 Championship, but R-Truth beat him to it, taking his limousine, his title, and his wife, leaving Maverick with a displeased Carmella.
Braun Strowman vs. Randy Row
“Don’t blink. This ain’t gonna last long.”#RawReunion @BraunStrowman pic.twitter.com/8zjzyEvc89— WWE (@WWE) July 23, 2019
Before the match, Braun Strowman grabbed a microphone and said, “don’t blink, this ain’t gonna last long.” And he wasn’t lying. Strowman brutally beat Randy down in a matter of seconds.
Winner: Braun Strowman
Finish With a Bang
SWIG OF BROKEN SKULL FOR THE WORKIN’ MAN.#RawReunion @steveaustinBSR pic.twitter.com/yhdQ4SjD7L— WWE Universe (@WWEUniverse) July 23, 2019
With all of the legends and Hall of Famers on the stage, Hulk Hogan came out to say Hulk Hogan things and Ric Flair got a moment in the spotlight.
THEN. The Texas Rattlesnake, Stone Cold Steve Austin, marched past them all, going straight to the ring for a beer bash. Stone Cold went through the greatest hits of his catchphrases while the crowd gleefully played along.
He promised not to get sentimental, but couldn’t resist talking up his fellow legends, who had become his family over the years. While he didn’t get emotional, he did finish off with a beer toast to all of his friends and plenty of hugs….”but no christmas cards or any of that shit.”
