WWE Raw Results – May 6, 2019

Welcome to Ringside News’ results coverage for Monday Night Raw!

Tonight’s show is set to begin with SmackDown Live’s Roman Reigns, all but reaffirming that the brand split is effectively dead. What is Roman doing on Raw? We’re not sure but he just started a feud with Shane McMahon, and also Money In The Bank is approaching, so it likely has something to do with that, although WWE.Com is teasing a “jaw-dropping announcement”.

Also teased for tonight is a response from Seth Rollins after AJ Styles drove him through a table last week. Styles may be turning slowly heel but we’ll have to wait and see.

And the rest of tonight’s show is set to be further developments between Lacey Evans and Becky Lynch, Samoa Joe and Rey Mysterio, and The Uso’s and The Revival. All in all, it promises to be a by-the-numbers episode of Raw. Remember to follow us on Twitter and Instagram, download the Ringside News app, and enjoy the show!

Monday Night Raw

The show kicks-off with the Chairman, Vince McMahon coming to the ring to a raucous reception.

Vinny Mac welcomes us to the show and says tonight’s show will be one for the ages; a show no-one will forget. Not at least because we’re beginning with him. Vince is interrupted as he attempts to introduce himself…

Roman makes his way to the ring, staring a hole through Vince as he does so. Roman stands opposite Vince, who tells him not to even think about touching him tonight because the police are on-hand. Secondly, why is he even on Raw tonight?

Roman says Vince had better watch his tone. He is on SmackDown Live but he was a major part of Raw for five years. And he always claimed he would leave Raw a better place than he left it. He reminds Vince that not so long ago he said the McMahons were no longer in charge. Roman tells the fans not to cheer because that was a lie, Vince’s spoiled kids have been running amok. He says he doesn’t take orders from Vince, he takes it from the fans.

Vince says that’s not how things work. As a matter of fact, that would be opening the floodgates. He would have no control. Just then, out comes the former WWE Champion, Daniel Bryan!

Bryan comes to the ring and Vince says this must be a bad dream. He asks Bryan why he’s here. Bryan says ever since he was robbed at WrestleMania by Kofi Kingston, he has spent the past month in solitude. He’s been searching for answers, the likes of which only he and Vince could understand. But when he heard Roman was on the way to Raw, he figured he and Vince could have an intellectual discussion.

WWE Champion Kofi Kingston’s music hits before Vince can responds and the arena erupts. Kofi plays with the fans for a moment before telling Vince to chill out. Kofi says if Bryan had a problem with how things turned out at WrestleMania, he should have just come to him. Bryan says Kofi is an undeserving Champion, should never have even gotten a title shot, and his win was a fluke. He asks if Kofi knows why it took him 11 years? It’s because a pancake-throwing, novelty-act should never have made it. They begin to yell at each other.

Vince tells them to shut up because he had an epiphany. What if there was a wild card rule in regards to Raw and SmackDown Live? So three Superstars from Raw and three from SmackDown Live could jump back on forth on occasion. They all make their case why they should be the ones to come to Raw, until Drew McIntyre interrupts.

McIntyre says if Vince doesn’t have this situation under control and nobody in the back has the balls to do something, it’s up to him. He says this is not SmackDown Presents Raw. He says Kofi and Bryan are lucky he cares more about Roman. He says Roman thinks he can do whatever he wants, that he got himself drafted to SmackDown and punched his boss in the face. McIntyre says he shouldn’t have come back because he’s going to Claymore Kick his face off.

Vince says tonight we’ll have a WrestleMania rematch between Roman and Drew. And what if we have a second rematch; Kingston Vs. Bryan for the WWE Championship. He says he’s brilliant and turns leaves the ring. AJ Styles then comes out as we head to a break.

*Commercial Break*

We return to see Styles and Vince alone in the ring. McMahon asks him to get on with it. AJ asks what Vince is doing? He says he finally just got to Raw, but next thing he knows there are SmackDown Superstars on Raw. Vince says there’s a good explanation for that: wild card rule.

AJ says that’s very convenient. He spent years turning SmackDown into the house that AJ Styles built. He says now he got to Raw, a chance to face Seth, and Vince brings Seth Rollins’ best buddy right back. Styles says if that’s how it works, he could go to SmackDown Live and bring some of his friends to Raw. Vince begins to explain the rule again but Seth Rollins interrupts.

Seth makes a b-line for the ring and Vince tells him to take it easy. Rollins says he gave AJ the benefit of the doubt but one week later he sucker punched him. Seth mocks AJ for the fact he thinks he built SmackDown Live. Rollins says this isn’t SmackDown, it’s his show: Monday Night Rollins. Vince mumbles that it’s actually his show.

AJ says he knows exactly where he is. He hit Seth last week because he threw his belt in his face. He says he could kick Seth’s ass and at Money In The Bank nothing will change. He says he will give Seth the Phenomenal Forearm again and stand tall as the Champion. Vince says it’s obvious they want to go at it tonight, and suggests they should team-up tonight. They put up a fight but Vince says they’ll be doing it right now, and he heads to the back.
