WWE Raw Results – May 20, 2019

Back from the break and out comes Mrs. Foley’s baby boy! Foley comes to the ring with the new title belt in hand.

Foley says he wants to get right to the point and talk about the title on his shoulder. There’s been something missing from Monday Night RAW for a while now: it’s time to revisit the letters R-A-W. It’s time to make Monday night RAW again. The fans cheer. For those superstars looking to step up, it takes a lot to be a champion in WWE. It’s not something you just defend. Championship titles are something you breathe, think about, covet, love, and sacrifice a few teeth and an ear. That’s how a legend is born. It consumes your life 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. With that being said, he introduces the reveals the new 24/7 Championship. A dark green belt with 24/7 etched on it.

The crowd boos. Foley says the falls can take place anywhere, even out of the ring. The third hour of RAW every week will have a title match open to anyone from any roster. Now they’ll have a championship scramble. Whoever grabs the championship is the inaugural champion. Foley lays the belt down in the ring and leaves.

A mass of B-level Superstars run down the ramp brawling with each other. No one can get into the ring. Eventually Titus O’Neil and Drake Maverick are in the ring and Titus just grabs it to become the inaugural champion. O’Neil celebrates on the ramp before being rolled up by Robert Roode. Roode is now the 24/7 Champion. Roode runs off without the title. OK then.

*Commercial Break*

We see Robery Roode running around backstage with the title, panicking. He hides behind some production boxes and all the other wrestlers run past screaming. Roode then emerges and runs the opposite way.

Drew McIntyre and Shane make their way to the ring. So Shane really is in two feuds at once. The apron is just black with red RAW written on it, and the Titantron is also just black. It’s a darker, more classic look and I’m digging it.

The Miz Vs. Drew McIntyre W/Shane McMahon

The bell rings and Drew takes Miz down with a slam, then chops him around the ring. McIntyre whips Miz into the corner, then looks for a suplex but Miz reverses with a jawbreaker. Miz kicks Drew, then suckers him over the ropes.

Miz looks for a sunset flip pin but Drew shrugs him off. Drew tosses Miz to the corner, but the A-Lister fires back. Miz runs and hits Drew with a corner clothesline but Drew was unfazed and retaliates with a belly-to-belly.

Drew hits Miz with an impressive deadlift suplex. He then tries to suplex Miz over the ropes and to the floor but Miz lands on his feet and tries to sunset flip him onto the floor. He can’t get him, so Miz just swipes McIntyre’s leg again and he collapses. McIntyre tosses Miz into the barricade, then slams him down on top of it. McIntyre suplexes Miz from the crowd side of the barricade to the floor as we head for a break.

McIntyre tried to catch Miz off guard but Miz dodged him. Miz gets Drew back in the ring but Shane attacks Miz from behind.

Winner: Drew McIntyre

That was a surprisingly great match. Miz has really stepped it up. Shane grabs the microphone after the match and says he said he was done with Miz, but he has one final gift. He instructs Drew to put Miz in the corner, then gets on the top rope for the Coast to Coast. Before he can jump, Roman Reigns comes out and hits McIntyre with the Superman Punch. Shane and Drew retreat.

We see Corbin and Lashley standing backstage talking. Robert Roode runs into them, then looks around panicking, and runs off. Drake Maverick then runs up and into Corbin. He apologises, then takes off again.

Charly Caruso interviews Seth Rollins and Kofi Kingston. She asks them about their opponents tonight, to which they say they aren’t taking Corbin and Lashley lightly. Seth jokes that nobody in the world likes Corbin. She asks who they think Lesnar will cash-in on, and Kofi says it doesn’t matter, because he’ll be ready regardless. He does the hip grinding as he says he is the Champion, then asks Seth why he didn’t grind. Seth laughs and walks off.

*Commercial Break*

Samoa Joe cuts a promo, in which he says he clearly did not lose the match last night. And if Rey Mysterio is the man he thinks he is, and wants to set an example for his son, then he will defend his title against him. Otherwise, Joe will have to set an example all on his own.

We see Robert Roode running out of the arena, trying to get into a car trunk with the help of R-Truth. He hops in and all the wrestlers come running out looking for him. Truth sends them running in the opposite direction, then helps Roode out of the trunk. Roode opens the car door and there’s a referee sitting in the passenger seat. Roode looks confused, then Truth smacks his head off of the car and pins him. R-Truth is the new 24/7 Champion.

Kofi Kingston makes his entrance. He’s teaming with Seth Rollins in the main event, with Brock Lesnar waiting in the wings.
