WWE Raw Results – July 1, 2019

Replays are shown of the Stomping Grounds main event, where Seth Rollins defeated Baron Corbin with the help of his girlfriend, Becky Lynch.

Charly Caruso then introduces Rollins and Lynch, the former of which wishes Lashley and Strowman all the best. Caruso says their celebrations were cut short last week by Corbin and Evans. She asks if their decision was impulsive, Rollins jokingly says he isn’t impulsive, then asks Lynch if he is. Lynch proceeds to tut and tsk sarcastically for far too long. Rollins says they know they can beat Corbin and Evans one-on-one but there’s always a chance they’ll lose. Lynch says they had better not lose her title. Rollins says they had better not lose his title. They share a very awkward and cringe-worthy minute of bantering between themselves and making awful jokes about her sleeping with the title, and Rollins saying he got lucky, with Lynch then making a grab for his crotch. God awful.

Maria and Mike Kanellis then walk up and she says she isn’t OK with them pretending they are the first couple of WWE. She also says that Lynch hasn’t done anything to deserve the title, unlike her, because she pushed an 8lb baby out of herself. Maria then says Rollins doesn’t impress her but her husband does. So she says she’ll bring her bitch if Seth brings his. Lynch says if they want a match they’ll slap their heads off right now and walks off. Rollins then says they done gone messed up and walks off. Rollins and Lynch as a couple will kill their individual selves.

*Commercial Break*

We’re back and see more replays of the opening of the show. Renee Young then provides an unsubstantiated update that Braun has a ruptured spleen.

Seth Rollins & Becky Lynch Vs. Mike & Maria Kanellis

Seth and Mike start the match, with Seth hitting a snapmare and kicking Mike. Corey describes Mike as “Maria’s bitch”. Rollins connects with a dropkick and Mike gets angry. Kanellis ducks a shot from Rollins and drops him with a right hand. Seth catches Mike and hits a buckle bomb, followed by a superkick. Seth forces Mike to tag in, meaning Maria is also legal.

Becky gets in the ring, but Maria gets out of the ring and grabs a microphone. She yells at Mike and says he disgusts her. He said he would mop the floor with Rollins but he can’t even mop the floor at home. Becky then comes out of the ring and is about to hit her when Maria yells “I’m pregnant!” Mike asks her how she’s pregnant and Maria says she doesn’t know, because Mike isn’t man enough to do it.

Lynch then drags Mike into the ring and puts on the Dis-Arm-Her and he taps – despite that not being legal in two ways.

Winners: Becky Lynch & Seth Rollins

Maria gets in the ring and says she cannot believe Mike is the father of her children. She says she has waited for him to grow-up and be a man but the only man here tonight was Becky Lynch. She says maybe next time she’ll ask Becky to impregnate her.

We go backstage and see Paul Heyman, who gets a big ovation. He introduces himself as the advocate of Brock Lesnar. He says tonight has been a crazy night for both Seth Rollins and Kofi Kingston, and just maybe his client is in the building. Street Profits then walk up and joke around, asking Heyman if Lesnar is actually here and generally being loud. Heyman leaves and they yell for him to come back.

*Commercial Break*

Alexa Bliss comes out for A Moment of Bliss. Alexa says her thoughts are with Braun Strowman and Bobby Lashley tonight. She then brings Nikki Cross out and shows a replay of her beating Bayley on Smackdown Live to win Bliss another Smackdown Women’s Championship match at Extreme Rules. Cross thanks Bliss for believing in her.

Carmella’s music hits and interrupts. Carmella comes out and says Bliss is just using Cross. Bliss gets a title shot. What does Cross get? Bliss says she knows Carmella is trying to break them up. Bliss says Carmella is nothing more than a sidekick. Carmella challenges her to get in the ring and she’ll show her a sidekick. Alexa agrees.

Alexa Bliss w/Nikki Cross vs. Carmella

The bell rings, and Carmella immediately rolls her up for the win.

Winner: Carmella

It seems this segment isn’t over but we’re heading to the break. This whole no-wrestling-during-breaks thing just means everyone is getting beat very quickly.

*Commercial Break*

Carmella Vs. Nikki Cross W/Alexa Bliss

We come back in time to see this match begin, and Cross runs wild over Carmella.

Carmella responds by taking her down with a headscissor takeover. Cross rolls from the ring but as Carmella slides towards her, Cross traps her in the apron and unloads with forearms to the back.

Cross gets her back in the ring, climbs to the top turnbuckle and jumps over Carmella. She grabs Mella and hits a swinging neckbreaker for the pin and the win.

Winner: Nikki Cross

Bliss and Carmella celebrate after the match, with Bliss seemingly trying to hog the spotlight.

After the break we’re getting Ricochet Vs. AJ Styles, that is, until it has to be restarted.

*Commercial Break*

We return from the break to see Nikki and Alexa walking backstage. An interviewer approaches them and asks how they feel knowing that the WWE Universe wants Cross to face Bayley at Extreme Rules instead of Alexa. Bliss says “no comment” and storms off.

Drake Maverick and his wife are backstage and she says she needs to go to the bathroom before they leave. As Maverick is waiting a bunch of Superstars run past. Truth then pops out and acts relieved and Maverick tells him he isn’t interested in chasing him anymore. Truth wishes him a good honeymoon, then walks off. Maverick grabs his suitcase and hits Truth with it in the head and pins him! Drake Maverick is the WWE 24/7 Champion. His wife returns and he tells her he knew their honeymoon was going to be good, but now they get to do it 24/7.

AJ Styles makes his entrance, followed by the US Champion, Ricochet.

*Commercial Break*

United States Championship Match

(C) Ricochet Vs. AJ Styles

The bell rings and Ricochet feigns a lock-up but tips Styles over. Ricochet reverses AJ with a roll-up but Styles kicks-out then drops the Champion with a right hand. Styles is whipped into the corner and Ricochet shoulder tackles him before landing a spirngboard clothesline.

Styles gets his knees-up to avoid a standing shooting star press, then tees-off on the Champion in the corner. Ricochet responds with a rolling dropkick that knocks AJ out of the ring. Ricochet then dives twisting over the ropes onto Styles before getting him back inside.

Ricochet springboards but nobody’s home. Styles goes to the apron and hits the Phenomenal Forearm and pins Ricochet – whose foot was under the rope – and wins. I’m not going to say AJ is the winner and new Champion, because we all know this just means the match going to be restarted.

Another official comes down to the ring as AJ is posing with the title. The music stops and the referee’s argue with each. Of course, this just means we’re heading to the break and the match will be restarted.

*Commercial Break*

We’re back live and *shocker*, the match has been restarted and the good brothers are now at ringside.

Ricochet punches Ricochet into the corner and chops him. Ricochet tries to whip him but Styles fires back with a right hand. Ricochet flips off of AJ’s chest, lands on his feet, and hits an enziuguiri. Ricochet takes to the top rope and looks for a phoenix splash but nobody’s home and he lands on his feet. Ricochet knocks AJ out of the ring and AJ hits his head on the apron.

Ricochet dives over the ropes but Styles slides inside and the Champion lands on his feet. AJ hits Ricochet with a Phenomenal Forearm to the outside, then gets Ricochet back into the ring for a brainbuster and a two count. Styles hits a torture rack bomb for a near-fall. Ricochet knocks AJ off the ropes and hits him with an arm-drag roll-up for the win.

Winner: Ricochet

AJ is shocked after his loss and clearly unhappy. Ricochet poses with his title.

AJ extends his hand and Ricochet shakes it. Gallows and Anderson are then on the apron, sarcastically clapping Styles. Ricochet sets his belt down, ready to fight, but Styles tries to play peacekeeper. Styles turns and punches Ricochet. He then stomps and punches Ricochet, before instructing Anderson and Gallows to hit the Magic Killer to Ricochet. Styles lifts the Champion and punches him, before hitting him with a Styles Clash from the middle rope! Styles Anderson and gallows pose with Too Sweet, then Styles unloads some ground and pound on Ricochet, followed by Anderson doing the same. The three of them pose, with Styles standing on Ricochet. “The Club rides once again.”

That’s it for this week’s Raw. Let us know what you thought of the show and be sure to come back tomorrow for more news and results. Until then, safe travels!
