WWE Raw Results – July 1, 2019

We return from the break to see replays of the opening of the show, in which Braun Strowman tackled Bobby Lashley through the stage and both men were taken away in ambulances. Renee Young says they’re at a hospital being evaluated.

We go backstage for an interview with The Miz. He says WWE Superstars put their lives on the lines every week and you don’t wish what happened to Braun and Lashley on anyone. We then see a replay of Miz being beaten down by Elias and Shane McMahon on last week’s SmackDown Live. Miz says he doesn’t feel good but he needs to take care of Elias. He’s going to make sure Elias goes back to playing music in the subway. As for Shane, well he’s heard The Undertaker is here.

Shane McMahon’s music hits and out comes the best in the world, followed by Drew McIntyre. The duo make their way to the ring.

Shane asks Mike Rome to introduce him properly as usual. Shane says he has been inundated with questions about the conditions of Braun Strowman and Bobby Lashley. He says he has other things to do that grace the fans with his presence. However, since they’re out here, maybe they should address last week. They say last week was to be Roman Reigns’ demise, and that Roman was terrified. He shows the footage of them beating Reigns throughout the match.

Drew says the footage speaks for itself, Roman knows what’s going to happen at Extreme Rules. Shane says that’s true but let’s not focus on Reigns, let’s talk about the man “Roman begged to come help him”, The Undertaker. Shane says he will give it to Roman, he surprised him last week. But there will be no surprises at Extreme Rules, because they will put The Big Dog and The Phenom in the ground.

McIntyre says The Undertaker is the greatest Superstar of all time. For decades he has struck fear into the hearts of WWE Superstars with each chokeslam and tombstone. However he’s no ordinary Superstar, and the truth is, he doesn’t care about The Undertaker. He says he came for a fight, and tells The Undertaker to come on out if he’s here.

We hear a lightning flash and thunder, along with the lights going up and down, and a bolt of lightning that strikes the ring posts. Shane and Drew look ruffled, then comes the bell toll and the lights go out. The Undertaker makes his entrance, while Shane and Drew leave the ring and go stand in the crowd.

The Deadman says Roman Reigns never asked for his help. That’s not who he is, but if they need to know why, he will explain who he is. The Undertaker says he is and has been the reaper of wayward souls for a long time, and he’s here to collect their souls. He says Shane had his respect for a while, particularly after their Hell In A Cell at WrestleMania, but like most mortal men he fell victim to his greed and ego. He says Shane may be the best in this world, but where he’s sending them to, they’ll be just another couple of lost souls suffering in the acrid stench of death. And that will be for eternity, because they will never rest in peace.

Still to come, an interview with Becky Lynch and Seth Rollins. We see Lacey Evans doing her make-up backstage as Baron Corbin watches. He says if they’re having an Extreme Rules match, that helps them. Corbin says Rollins can clearly take a ton of punishment, but that he doesn’t know if Seth can juggle the title and a relationship, and asks if she’s worth it. Evans swirls around in her chair and says The Man is also no joke, because she beat Ronda Rousey at WrestleMania. But she sees how Seth Rollins looks at her, and he’ll be watching her tonight as she beats Natalya and realises he shouldn’t have put his faith in The Man.

We cut back to the arena to see The Undertaker pose on the stage.

They lock-up and Natalya forces Evans to the ropes. Evans shoves Natalya but then gets pushed right out of the ring. Natalya jumps out after her but gets clotheslined down. Lacey gets Nattie back in the ring for a two count.

We see Seth Rollins and Becky Lynch backstage, watching the match on a monitor. Evans stomps Natalya down in the corner, then hits a rope-assisted dropkick for a two count. Evans gets onto the apron and delivers some elbows and a knee to Natalya. Evans then jumps over the ropes with an elbow to the veteran. 

Natalya knocks Evans down but is then caught with a neckbreaker.  Natalya forces Evans to the corner and unloads hands. Corbin gets on the apron and distracts Natalya. Evans looks for a roll-up but Nattie reverses into one of her own. Natalya slaps Evans, then drops her with an atomic drop and runs over her. Natalya hits the ropes and Corbin pulls her foot, causing her to fall. Evans then hits Natalya with the Woman’s Right for the win.

Winner: Lacey Evans

Ricochet is interviewed backstage by Charly Caruso, who says this has been a whirlwind week. She says AJ has said that he might not be on his level. Ricochet says AJ can feel however he pleases, but facing him in the main event of Raw was a dream come true. However if they did it again he “probably wouldn’t lose”. Anderson and Gallows walk up and say that the truth is, AJ could have beat him in three minutes. They poke and prod him, and say Ricochet needs put in his place. He says he doesn’t want any trouble, and they say it won’t be coming from them.

*Commercial Break*

We return to see Gallows and Anderson with AJ Styles. They lie to him that Ricochet says he can beat Styles with ease. AJ says he needs to talk to Ricochet, and they say that’s not good enough. They say AJ has lost his edge, that he needs to find his old self and go slap Ricochet. AJ walks off and around a corner, where he finds Ricochet doing push-ups. He tells Ricochet not to talk trash about him, that he’s taking his title tonight. Ricochet says he doesn’t know why he’s so fired-up but he accepts. AJ then slaps him across the face, and Ricochet responds in kind. AJ smiles and says “this is going to be good”.

We go to the arena and Elias is introduced but The Miz’s music hits right away. Miz comes to the ring but before the bell can ring, Miz attacks Elias. Miz knocks Elias from the ring and tosses him into the steel steps before getting him back in the ring.
