The July 29 2019 edition of WWE Raw, out of Verizon Arena in North Little Rock, Arkansas, 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 #1366 of WWE Raw by tweeting us, @TheRumbleRamble.
Drake Maverick and Renee Michelle vs. R-Truth and Carmella
Mosh Pit Mixed Tag Match
R-Truth retained his 24/7 Championship with relative ease, but the moment the match was over, the 24/7 rules went back into effect, meaning that the “mosh pit” of men surrounding the ring for the match immediately jumped in at the final bell.
The bell rang again, signifying someone won the title, and out of the dog pile came Mike Kanellis, who swiftly disappeared backstage before anyone could catch up with him.
The rest of the 24/7 title pursuers chased him into a closet, where he refused to open the door for anyone, even his wife Maria, in case it was Carmella tricking him – which did not make Maria very happy.
Winner: R-Truth / Mike Kanellis
Winner Becomes No 1 Contender to the United States Championship
Rey Mysterio vs. Cesaro
Cesaro did his best to ground Rey Mysterio as early as possible, but Mysterio proved too quick for this, running circles around Cesaro until he was finally laid out with an uppercut.
Rey Mysterio got his payback by launching Cesaro face-first into the apron, then diving on top of him on the floor. However, when he tried to finish off the sequence with a 619, Cesaro dodged the attack.
But with another uppercut after throwing Mysterio straight into a ring post, Cesaro gained control of the match. From there, Mysterio and Cesaro traded near fall after near fall, the action drifting to the top rope, and with a top rope bulldog, a 619, and a frog splash, Rey Mysterio took the victory.
Rey Mysterio vs. Sami Zayn
Wasting no time, Sami Zayn literally sprinted down the ramp, bulldozing straight into Rey Mysterio, but he let his emotions get the best of him and Mysterio was able to sneak a win with a rollup.
Rey Mysterio vs. Andrade
Despite having a lengthy match with Cesaro and being attacked by Sami Zayn, Rey Mysterio did not allow Andrade to get the early upper hand, holding off his opponent as long as he could, and even when Andrade began to gain steam, Rey kept up with him.
Andrade (and Zelina) thought for sure he had the win when he successfully hit a Three Amigos followed by a moonsault, but Mysterio refused to stay down. However, Andrade threw a hammerlock DDT shortly after, which was the final straw for Rey.
After the match, Andrade continued to abuse Mysterio, even ripping his mask completely off, and only relenting when Ricochet ran down to save his fellow high flyer.
Andrade vs. Ricochet
Fresh to the action and fueled by his anger on Rey Mysterio’s behalf, Ricochet fired off a barrage of strikes at Andrade, and very possibly could have taken a quick victory had Zelina not interfered at every opportunity.
Ricochet hit Andrade with a gnarly dropkick but was unable to make the pin as he knocked the wind out of himself in the process, and by the time he had returned to his feet, Andrade had recovered as well.
Andrade and Ricochet were neck and neck until Ricochet flattened Andrade with an inverted hurricanrana. And while Zelina screamed in horror at ringside, Ricochet landed a 630, pinning Andrade and winning the gauntlet match.
First Pregnant Champion
Once Mike Kanellis eventually decided that it really was his wife at the door and not Carmella trying to trick him, he let her in. He probably regretted this decision in the end, however, as Maria demanded that he allow her to pin him so that their child had a champion as a parent.
She then proudly flaunted the 24/7 Championship to all of the contenders waiting in the hallway, daring any of them to wrestle a pregnant lady.
Maria Kanellis is kind of an evil genius.
Winner: Maria Kanellis
A Moment of Bliss: Alexa & Nikki
Alexa Bliss and Nikki Cross were casually discussing the events of Raw Reunion and brought up Dolph Ziggler attacking Shawn Michaels, which horrified them both. But Alexa revealed that Dolph wasn’t the only bad guy around and showed footage of Becky Lynch attacking Fit Finlay as he trained Natalya – and then attacking Natalya.
Becky Lynch appeared on the big screen, reminding Alexa and Nikki that she could hear everything they were saying and they would pay for it later.
The Revival (c) vs. The Usos vs. The OC (Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson)
Raw Tag Team Championship Match
Much of the match was fought between The Usos and The Revival, all four competitors careful to stay far away from The OC’s corner to raise the chances that one of them would be the winning team.
That is until Luke Gallows became frustrated by the lack of action and clotheslined Jey Uso as he was thrown from the ring. Once The OC had inserted themselves in the match, they went to work on Jey, who had already been in the ring for most of the action, so his fatigue made him an easy target.
Jimmy Uso got the hot tag (after his brother had taken quite a beating) and laid out everyone in his path. Dash Wilder tried to set up for the Shatter Machine, but Jimmy escaped. The Revival tried again for a finish and came close to retaining, but Karl Anderson broke up the pin.
Jimmy Uso superplexed Karl out of the ring onto the remaining competitors, and when he tried to finish off Scott Dawson, he took a little too long preparing for the splash and Gallows got a blind tag.
This led to absolute mayhem, finishes being thrown left and right and no one seeming to know who was legal and who wasn’t until The OC cut through the chaos with a Magic Killer on Jimmy Uso, winning the match and taking the Raw Tag Team Championships for themselves.
Backstage, AJ Styles greeted them with a party to celebrate their three titles.
Winner: The OC

The Viking Raiders vs. Johnny James and Cole Carter
Erik and Ivar decimated Johnny and Cole. No contest. And it was awesome.
Winner: The Viking Raiders
BURN IT DOWN
The Street Profits were hanging around the backstage area, chatting about the events of the show, and Angelo may have insinuated that Maria Kanellis’ baby might be his. Which intrigued Montez Ford, but before he could ask too many questions, Seth Rollins appeared.
The three had a fun interaction, screamed “burn it down” together, and Seth went on his way for his match.
Becky Lynch vs. Alexa Bliss
Alexa Bliss was a little too concerned with closing her ears to the “Becky Lynch” chants ringing through the arena at the start of the match and paid for it in the form of several suplexes at the hands of The Man.
Bliss withstood the storm, however, and as she was able to avoid the Dis-Arm-Her (twice), she actually came back strong. Becky began to gain steam again, but “injured” Alexa Bliss during a Becksploder, forcing Alexa to forfeit the match (gaining plenty of sympathy from Nikki Cross, which was undoubtedly the goal).
Enraged, Nikki Cross climbed into the ring to start a shouting match with Becky Lynch.
Winner: Becky Lynch (via forfeit)
Nikki Cross vs. Becky Lynch
Fitting right in with Alexa Bliss’ master plan, Nikki Cross challenged Becky Lynch to a match. And though she did get a good bit of offense in on The Man, Becky Lynch won rather quickly with a Mandhandle Slam.
But. Soon after the bell rang, Alexa Bliss made a miraculous recovery, attacking Becky from behind before being joined by Nikki Cross. The dastardly duo pummeled Becky until Natalya ran down the ramp, chasing Alexa and Nikki away. Instead of helping Becky up, however, she locked her in a Sharpshooter.
Backstage, Natalya said it wasn’t about friendships, it was about glory.
Winner: Becky Lynch
Seth Rollins vs. Dolph Ziggler
Adding insult to injury after superkicking Shawn Michaels last week on SmackDown Live, Dolph Ziggler came out to HBK’s music, which of course only angered Seth Rollins more.
Rollins went after Ziggler with reckless abandon, and though Ziggler gained control momentarily by throwing Rollins into the barricade, it wasn’t long before Rollins was back to clobbering his opponent.
Ziggler dug deep for a second wind, hitting Rollins with a Zigzag, but Rollins kicked out of the pin. Frustrated, Dolph Ziggler prepared for a superkick, but Seth caught him with one instead.
Rollins revved up for a second superkick to finish Ziggler, but at that moment, Brock Lesnar’s music hit. Dolph Ziggler made sure to hold Rollins’ leg so he couldn’t escape as The Beast approached, allowing Brock to ragdoll Rollins the second he stepped into the ring.
In fact, Brock Lesnar beat Seth down so viciously that he was “coughing up blood” in the middle of the ring.
Winner: Seth Rollins (via disqualification)
Anarchy in the Ambulance
And the brutality didn’t end in the ring.
Backstage, while The Usos and Roman Reigns brawled with The OC and Samoa Joe, Seth Rollins was being loaded into an ambulance.
That is until The Beast caught up with him. Brock Lesnar yanked the door open, flung Seth Rollins, strapped to a stretcher, onto the floor, then suplexed him onto the stretcher.
Needless to say, Brock Lesnar has no intentions of losing his title at Summerslam.
The Samoan Summit
Samoa Joe came to the ring to announce that The Samoan Summit had been canceled due to a complete failure to make peace. Joe dared Roman to come down and fight – if he was up to it after the beating he received backstage.
Roman Reigns wrecked Samoa Joe with a set of steel steps, but Drew McIntyre stepped onto the scene, brawling with Roman before teaming up with Joe to outnumber him, bettering their chances of injuring their target.
Cedric Alexander ran down to even the odds and the action migrated to the stage. The OC and The Usos joined the fray and chaos ensued, leading to Alexander jumping from the top of the stage onto the other men.
Back in the ring, Roman Reigns demolished Samoa Joe with a spear, standing tall with The Usos and Cedric Alexander to close out a fantastic show.
