The 06/24/19 edition of WWE Raw, out of the Angel of the Winds Arena in Everett, Washington, 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 #1361 of WWE Raw by tweeting us, @TheRumbleRamble.
The King & The Man & The Lady & The Wolf
Seth Rollins may be starting to get a little tired of his lady, Becky Lynch, stealing his thunder, but that didn’t stop him from teaming up with her to beat down Lacey Evans and Baron Corbin when the newest dynamic duo of WWE interrupted their brag fest.
High on their recent victories at Stomping Grounds, as well as their conquering of Evans and Corbin once again, Rollins and Lynch claimed that they could beat their rivals anytime, anywhere.
Taking advantage of the offer, Baron Corbin and Lacey Evans challenged them to a mixed tag match at Extreme Rules, where both Rollins and Lynch would put their championships on the line, which Seth and Becky accepted.
Daniel Bryan & Rowan and The Revival vs. The Usos and The New Day
8-Man Tag Team Elimination Match
The Usos and The New Day had their work cut out for them in this match, as they were facing both the Raw and SmackDown Live Tag Team Champions.
To make things even more difficult, neither The Revival nor Bryan and Rowan have any problems with bending the rules to shift the odds in their favor, and demonstrated this repeatedly in this match.
But The Usos overcame every obstacle, persevering even after The New Day were eliminated via a Shatter Machine, and defeated The Revival, preserving their reputation as one of the top tag teams on either brand.
Winner: The Usos and The New Day
Miz TV: R-Truth & Carmella
After showing footage of R-Truth taking the title back from Drake Maverick at Maverick’s wedding, Miz asked Truth what being the 24/7 Championship was like. Truth spilled all of the tea, telling Miz that he could no longer enjoy any of the things he used to, as contenders have shown up at his house, so he was afraid to go out in public.
Carmella reminded Miz that, under the circumstances, crashing the wedding wasn’t that out of line. But Drake Maverick disagreed, and came to the ring to tell them so. Completely disheveled, Maverick talked about how his wedding and his marriage thus far were ruined, and begged Truth for a rematch.
Truth was hesitant, but Miz informed him that no other competitors would be allowed to interfere, it would strictly be one-on-one between Truth and Maverick.
R-Truth defeated Drake Maverick in about 5 seconds, but the final bell had barely rung when the hoard of 24/7 Title hopefuls sprinted down to the ring to take advantage of the vulnerable champion. Unfortunately, the men couldn’t stop fighting each other long enough to take Truth down, allowing him to escape once again with Carmella on his back.
Post-match, Charly Caruso asked Drake where he was going now that his life was basically in shambles, but Drake couldn’t speak without crying and left the ring in tears.
Shane McMahon and Drew McIntyre vs. Roman Reigns
2-On-1 Handicap Match
As if a 2-on-1 tag match wasn’t enough of a challenge for Roman, Shane McMahon decided at the last moment that it would be Roman vs. himself and Drew McIntyre at the same time.
Roman Reigns took Shane out as soon as he stepped in the ring, doing his best to even the odds. While Shane was out, he threw Drew McIntyre out of the ring before turning his attention back to Shane. This was a good strategy, but only worked briefly, as once Roman was outside of the ring, Shane and Drew absolutely decimated him with a set of steel steps.
Back in the ring, Shane and Drew continued the mugging, Shane mocking him with his own theatrics and finisher. Shane was preparing to finish off The Big Dog with a Coast to Coast when the lights went out. The bell tolled and Taker was in the ring, throwing both Shane and Drew out of the ring, but never once acknowledging Roman Reigns.
Braun Strowman vs. Bobby Lashley
Braun was shown earlier pulling an 18 wheeler through the parking lot, making it even more surprising when Bobby Lashley was rather easily able to pull him to the middle of the ring. It made much more sense when we discovered that Braun had been messing with him the whole time, grinning before yanking the rope and Bobby straight over the line, winning the contest.
Angry at the embarrassing loss, Bobby Lashley used every dirty tactic in the book to bring Braun down post-contest, raking the rope across his eyes before attacking him from behind, leaving The Monster in shambles as he strode away.
The Club vs. The Viking Raiders
Though Gallows and Anderson were anxious to prove to their perhaps former friend that they were still the lethal tag team they’ve always been, Karl Anderson lost control of the match rather quickly.
But just when it looked like The Club’s hopes of victory had completely slipped from their fingers, they overtook Erik. Anderson and Gallows scored a near fall but opted to taunt their opponents rather than finish them off, which cost them the match in the form of Ivar powerbombing Erik onto Anderson.
Winner: The Viking Raiders
Mojo Rawley vs. Heath Slater
A match that was supposed to take place between Mojo Rawley and Heath Slater devolved into a mad dash for the 24/7 Championship. R-Truth came crashing into the ring area, followed by his usual group of title pursuers.
Heath Slater took the 24/7 title with a roll-up, but immediately lost it to R-Truth, who lost it to Cedric Alexander, who was attacked by EC3 (who took the title), who was distracted by Carmella, allowing R-Truth to leave with the championship once again.
Kofi Kingston vs. Sami Zayn
Though the chances of a Kevin Owens interference were high, Kofi Kingston launched himself into this match with no fear. And even when the inevitable Owens intrusion did take place, the WWE Champion was able to overcome it.
But Kofi Kingston had barely gotten back to his feet after his victory against Zayn when Kevin Owens demanded that he really prove himself by competing in a second match, this time against Owens.
Winner: Kofi Kingston
Kofi Kingston vs. Kevin Owens
Although Kevin Owens was fresh and Kofi Kingston was already worn from his battle with Sami Zayn, he won the match with an SOS on the ramp to KO, causing Owens to lose via countout. When Sami Zayn tried to avenge his friend, he was thrown out of the ring on top of him.
As Kofi made his way back toward the backstage area, he was brutally attacked by Samoa Joe. After absolutely leveling Kofi, Joe disappeared backstage, but decided that he hadn’t had enough, and came sprinting back out to lock in a Coquina Clutch, knocking Kofi out completely.
Winner: Kofi Kingston
Alexa Bliss vs. Naomi
Alexa Bliss made her disappointment in her new friend Nikki Cross known before the match took place, scolding Nikki for costing her the match against Bayley the night previously at Stomping Grounds.
Naomi easily overpowered Alexa in this match, whose only saving grace was that Nikki Cross was standing at ringside, right there to assist her should she need a leg up.
Unfortunately, Nikki Cross took a kick to the face from Naomi that was meant for Alexa, and Naomi’s concern for Nikki ultimately cost her the match, as Alexa was able to take advantage of the fact that Naomi’s attention wasn’t fully focused on her.
Post-match, Alexa laid a beatdown on Naomi, but when Nikki Cross joined in, Natalya decided to run down to make the save, spurring a tag team match between the two sets of friends.
Winner: Alexa Bliss
Alexa Bliss and Nikki Cross vs. Naomi and Natalya
Desperate to prove herself a worthy friend of Alexa Bliss, Nikki Cross went all out for this match, unleashing her fury on Natalya. Alexa Bliss was far less dominant against Natalya and Naomi, but Nikki Cross eventually took Natalya out with a neckbreaker.
Alexa had tagged in when Nikki wasn’t paying attention, however, and took the “win” for herself, even though Nikki was the one who had done all of the work to get there. Nikki appeared confused as Alexa held her hand in the air in victory, but became overjoyed at being back in The Goddess’ good graces when she realized what had happened.
Winner: Alexa Bliss and Nikki Cross
AJ Styles vs. Ricochet
A fresh AJ Styles went one-on-one with the brand new United States Champion, Ricochet, in the main event. Shortly after the match began, Gallows and Anderson came to ringside, presumably to intimidate Ricochet, or maybe to remind AJ Styles how fearsome they could be, but regardless of their intentions, Styles wasn’t having it, and demanded that they leave before he resumed the match.
When Gallows and Anderson left, the real action began, Ricochet and Styles having a hard-hitting match, both intent to prove themselves, one as a worthy champion, the other as a formidable in-ring opponent. Ricochet threw everything he had at Styles, but in the end he simply fell short, losing the match to the Phenomenal One.
But there appeared to be no hard feelings, as Styles proudly raised Ricochet’s hand after the match, demonstrating to everyone watching that he wasn’t the same type of competitor as The Club anymore, he was honorable and could win with grace and class.
Winner: AJ Styles
