WWE Raw Results – July 8, 2019

Welcome to Ringside News’ coverage of Monday Night Raw.

Everybody’s favourite cringe and arrogant couple, Becky Lynch and Seth Rollins, will be taking on Zelina Vega and Andrade Almas tonight. Lynch and Rollins continue to turn fans against them with their over-the-top, patronising couple routine, meaning the two top babyfaces in the company are leaving a sour taste in fans mouths. The only upside is that their eventual opponents on Sunday are even more unlikable. Tonight could be a solid match however.

Shane McMahon and Drew McIntyre will face Roman Reigns and a mystery opponent tonight, because why wouldn’t you essentially give away the PPV match for free on Raw? Who will the opponent be? Well Shane McMahon will be doing the choosing, so it’s likely to be Hornswoggle or someone of that ilk.

Elsewhere tonight, we will learn what’s next for Braun Strowman and Bobby Lashley, Samoa Joe wants payback on Kofi Kingston, R-Truth is looking for his 48/7 Championship back, and Rey Mysterio returns to Raw following his injury. All things said, it should be a decent episode of Raw serving as the go-home for Extreme Rules.

And that’s the preview for tonight’s Raw. Let us know what you’re excited to see in the comments, on Twitter or Instagram, and by downloading the Ringside News app. Enjoy the show!

Monday Night Raw

Raw opens with the Raw Women’s Champion, Becky Lynch making her way to the ring. Lynch is followed by her boyfriend Seth Rollins.

Elimination Mixed Tag Match

Seth Rollins & Becky Lynch Vs. Andrade & Zelina Vega

We start off with Zelina Vega and Becky Lynch, and the Raw Women’s Champion manhandles her opponent. Lynch slams Vega twice before dancing around the ring, taunting her. Vega tries to crawl through Lynch’s legs to make the tag but she’s caught and thrown.

A right hand from Becky causes Vega to crawl to the apron. Vega sucker-kicks Becky, then hits a snap DDT for a one-count. Vega is whipped into the corner but she fires back with a big kick to the mouth of the Champion. Lynch lies against the ropes, so Vega swings around 619-style and grabs her in a crucifix submission. Becky fights out and creates some separation.

Lynch hits a suplex to Vega, so Zelina makes the tag to Andrade. That means Rollins is now the legal man. The two of them lock-up and Seth takes a wristlock and twists it. Andrade turns the tables and takes a wristlock of his own but Seth fights out, and the two exchange leapfrogs, arm drags, and headlock takeovers.

Andrade chops Seth and looks for a back suplex but Rollins lands on his feet and connects with a slingblade. Rollins clothesline’s Andrade out of the ring and hits a suicide dive, then another. Lynch tagged in and she hits Vega with a Bexploder, followed by the Dis-Arm-Her for the submission win. Of course, that means when we come back from commercial the match will be restarted as a singles match between Rollins and Andrade. Lacey Evans appears in the crowd, watching, so Lynch runs out and lays into her. Seth pulls them apart as we head to the break.

*Commercial Break*

We return to see Andrade attack Seth from behind. Lynch is still on the apron, despite not being in the match anymore. Andrade chops Seth on the corner and kicks him around the ring. Andrade gets Rollins caught up in the turnbuckle and he hits a double stomp from the top rope for a nearfall.  Rollins tries to fight back and hits a Falcon Arrow for a nearfall.

Rollins connects with a springboard knee for a near-fall, then heads to the top rope but Andrade shoves him off and to the floor. Zelina Vega then hits Rollins with a hurricanrana while the referee isn’t looking. Lynch then dives off the apron with a forearm to Vega and the two brawl. Andrade begins pulling them apart but Rollins shoves him away. Lynch then shoves Rollins aside, causing Andrade to shoulder tackle her into the barricade.

That makes Seth angry, so he starts laying into Andrade. Rollins gets him back in the ring and Vega tries to hit him with the hurricanrana again but he catches her and Lynch dropkicks her. Seth slides back into the ring and hits Andrade with The Stomp for the win.

Winners: Becky Lynch & Seth Rollins

The two Champions celebrate after their match. They will face Baron Corbin and Lacey Evans on Sunday in a Winners Take All match. Speak of the devils, Corbin attacks Seth from behind on the stage. Lynch then punches Corbin but he doesn’t really react. Evans reappears and whips Becky around and connects with the Women’s Right. Officials come out and tend to Seth and Becky while Evans and Corbin head to the back.

Paul Heyman walks out onto the stage, stares at Seth, then walks on down to the ring.

*Commercial Break*

We see some replays of the attack, then Evans and Corbin are standing backstage. Corbin says those two never saw their attack coming. They both wonder what will happen when they take the titles. Corbin asks if that will cost them their relationships and says that’s what makes their relationship great; it’s strictly business.

Paul Heyman is in the ring and he introduces himself as the advocate for Mr. Money In The Bank. Heyman says this Sunday there is a PPV and a title match under the Extreme Rules stipulation. He says he knows something about extreme. The show takes place in Philadelphia, and he happens to know that area well. So this Sunday, at Extreme Rules, his client will cash-in the Money In The Bank briefcase against either Kofi Kingston or Seth Rollins. And that’s not a prediction, that’s a spoiler. And he reminds us that he has never lied about spoilers going all the way back to WrestleMania 30. However, if he were messing with the two current Champions, this is how he would do it. But only he and Brock Lesnar know for sure.

The announcers discuss who Brock might cash-in on, then turn us to replays of Braun Strowman and Bobby Lashley crashing through the stage last week. They will face-off this Sunday in a Last Man Standing Match.

The Miz make his way out for a six-man, two-out-of-three falls tag match.

Two Out of Three Falls Match

The Miz & The Uso’s Vs. Elias & The Revival

Scott Dawson starts off with Jimmy Uso. Dawson takes a headlock but Uso shoots him off and his a shoulder tackle. Dawson responds with a back elbow and tags Elias. The Drifter unloads on Uso against the ropes, then floors him with a clothesline and knocks Miz off the apron.

Elias stomps Jimmy, then scoop slams him before tagging Dash Wilder. Jimmy starts to fight back, flooring both Dash and Dawson, meanwhile Miz and Elias brawl outside the ring. Miz chases Elias, causing a distraction, allowing The Revival to hit Jimmy with a Shatter Machine for the first fall.

1-0 The Revival & Elias

*Commercial Break*

We return to hear the bell ring and see Dash Wilder run at Uso in the corner but nobody’s home. So Elias left, meaning The Revival are technically in a handicap match. Dawson tags in and slingshots Uso into the bottom rope. Wilder tags in and dropkicks Uso in the face for a two count. Tag to Dawson, who wraps Jimmy in a bear hug. Wilder comes in and knocks Miz off the apron, but gets caught with a back body drop and the tag is made to Jey.

Jey Uso comes in hot, flooring both Dash and Dawson and hitting Wilder with a hip attack in the corner. Jey heads to the high rent district and lands a crossbody but Wilder rolls through and holds the tights for a two count. Jey dodges Wilder but the tag is made to Dawson. Jey connects with a Samoan drop to Wilder and kicks Dawson. Wilder hits a brainbuster for a near-fall and Miz is back on the apron. Jey reaches for the tag and makes it. Miz comes in and immediately hits Skull Crushing Finale to Scott Dawson.

1-1

Jey is tagged into the match as the final fall is in effect. Dash is knocked from the ring. Jimmy hits a dive over the ropes to Dash, while Jey hits a splash to Dawson in the ring for the win.

Winners: The Miz & The Uso’s

Later tonight, Bayley and Nikki Cross will partake in a beat the clock challenge.

We see a replay of Drake Maverick winning the 24/7 Championship, then going on his honeymoon with his wife. In every clip and picture, Maverick is holding the title in front of his wife’s face. We cut backstage to see Maverick’s wife sitting on a production box, and he climbs out of an adjacent box. She complains that he wasted their honeymoon on the title. Maverick says they’re together and that’s all that matters. He offers to consummate their marriage in the box but she says no. He says tonight he will show the world he’s a great 24/7 Champion and then show her that he’s a great husband. She says they can consummate it later tonight, causing Maverick to scream in delight. All the other Superstars hear him and chase after, while his wife sits and shakes her head.

Rey Mysterio is shown walking backstage; he’ll be out after the break for an open challenge.
