WWE Monday Night Raw Results – June 5 2017

Samoa Joe makes his way to the ring and the announcers recount his win last night. Joe says he is a man who does not fear Brock Lesnar. He can’t fear Brock because he is far too envious. He wants everything Brock has and he wants to take it from him. He wants his schedule in which he can come, beat people down, and leave as he pleases. He wants his ability to instil fear in other men. And you know what, he wants Paul Heyman to run his errands, negotiate his contracts, and be his mouthpiece. But more than anything else, he wants Brock Lesnar’s Universal Championship.

Live on PPV at Great Balls of Fire, he will stare into his eyes and he will take Brock Lesnar’s Universal title. Paul Heyman comes out and introduces himself. Heyman calls Joe the rightful number one contender, a badass who ploughed through four other contenders to meet Brock at Great Balls of Fire. A man who has left a path of destruction everywhere he has gone.

Heyman reminds Joe he is just an advocate and Joe allows him into the ring. Heyman says he understand that Joe doesn’t fear Lesnar but, respectfully, Brock does not fear Joe either. That being said, he thinks Joe likes the fact that Brock doesn’t fear him. Heyman says it doesn’t matter the name, the legend, the athleticism, the ruthlessness, the ability, Brock Lesnar squashed it all.

He reminds us that he said he wanted to see Brock Lesnar Vs. Finn Balor because that’s the best story to tell – a Rocky Balboa story. But Joe, he is the worst-case scenario. Because he does not give a damn, he wants to go to war with Brock Lesnar. And he doesn’t know if Brock can appease all his concerns this time. He says that regardless if Brock wins, he won’t leave the same way he came in because Joe will take a piece of him.

Heyman says Samoa Joe has got Brock Lesnar and shakes his hand. Heyman turns to leave but Joe pulls him back and drops the mic. He gets into his ear and tells Paul Heyman that something very bad is going to happen to Paul. He’s going to wrap his arms around his throat and his vision will get hazy. And then he can take that message to Brock Lesnar and explain his future to him, the way only he can. Joe then drags Heyman to the middle of the ring and applies the Coquida Clutch. Referee’s try to pull Joe off as he screams at Heyman to tell Brock how this feels. The fans chant “We Want Brock”, and Joe grabs the mic and says “So do I!”.

*Commercial Break*

We return and see a replay of what just happened between Paul Heyman and Samoa Joe. Fantastic segment from Samoa Joe – the best since he’s debuted on Raw.

Joe is backstage and Kurt Angle approaches him. Joe stops Angle shouting and says he will take out everyone who stands between him and Brock Lesnar. Joe goes nose-to-nose with Angle and asks if he is standing in his way. Seth Rollins walks up and gets into Joe’s face. Rollins says he hasn’t forgotten that Joe tried to end his career, and Joe didn’t beat him last night he beat Finn Balor. Angle books a match between the two of them for tonight.

The Raw Tag Team Champions make their way to the ring. We see highlights of Sheamus and Cesaro winning the titles last night.

Sheamus & Cesaro Vs. Heath Slater and Rhyno

Heath Slater will start against Sheamus. Cesaro distracts him, and Sheamus quickly takes Slater down before sending him shoulder-first into the ring post. Sheamus takes him down for a two count. Sheamus then goes to the chin lock. Slater fights up, but Sheamus takes him down with a back elbow.

Cesaro tags in and mocks Matt Hardy before hitting Slater for a two count. Cesaro applies another chin lock, but Slater gets out with a jawbreaker.

In the ring, Sheamus gives Slater a Brogue Kick for the win.

Winners: Sheamus & Cesaro

After the match Sheamus grabs a mic and says that that is how an intelligent team wins. He asks the fans if they are happy that The Hardy Boyz came back. Cesaro says he knows two people who aren’t happy they came back: Matt and Jeff Hardy. Sheamus says he is sure they are at home, licking their wounds and dreaming about winning the titles back. Cesaro says the Hardy’s chose the steel cage match and they lost. And now we’re looking at the two-time Raw Tag Team Champions and they don’t just set the bar, they are the bar!

We see TJP approach Neville backstage. TJP congratulates Neville on his win and tells him it’s time Neville fulfilled his end of the deal and gave him a title shot. Neville says that TJ is right, he is a man of his word. So, if TJP can win against Mustafa Ali tonight, he will speak to Kurt Angle about a match. That match is up next!

Winner: TJP

TJP is backing up the ramp when Neville’s pyro goes off and scares him. Neville makes his way to the stage with a forlorn look on his face. Neville says he doesn’t exactly know how to break this to TJP, but he spoke to Kurt Angle about his title opportunity. While he’s the King of the Cruiserweights, he’s not a miracle worker. TJP says they’ll go back to talk to Angle together. Neville attacks him from behind and screams that he’s not on his level. Neville slams his face against the stage floor and stands over him. Neville says TJP has his shot tomorrow night on 205 Live.

Later tonight, Alexa Bliss will defend her WWE RAW Women’s Championship against Nia Jax.

*Commercial Break*

It’s time for another “Shattered Dreams Production.” Goldust says R-Truth thinks he can sit in his director’s chair. Goldust says, “Frankly my dear, I don’t give a damn.”, which is from Gone With The Wind. Goldust has seen the truth and the bigger motion picture. Soon, the biggest names in Hollywood and the brightest stars in the sky will be glittered in gold. It’s going to be so beautiful. The Golden Age is back.

Sasha Banks is backstage with Mickie James and Dana Brooke. Alexa Bliss walks up and tries to be nice, but Banks walks off on her. Bliss gets James and Brooke to hold back. She says it’s unfair that Nia Jax is getting a shot over them. Brooke has improved a lot, and James is a legend in this division. Bliss says they have a Nia Jax problem. If they don’t stand together, their division and sisterhood won’t be the same. Brooke says they don’t have a Nia Jax problem… Bliss does. James says they’ll be at ringside to watch her deal with her problem all by herself. They walk off while Bliss looks worried.

Kurt Angle comes out to the commentary table and pulls Corey Graves away. Angle is showing him his phone while Michael Cole and Booker T look confused. Graves says something and goes back to the table. Angle walks off. Cole asks what is going on, but Graves ignores him.

O’Neil tries to roll him up with handful of tights, but Kalisto rolls through and grabs the tights for the win.
