WWE Raw Results – July 29, 2019

Welcome to Ringside News’ coverage of Monday Night Raw!

Tonight’s Raw will kick-off with a 24/7 Championship “Mosh Pit Mixed Tag Team Match”. Which means R-Truth and Carmella will face Drake Maverick and his wife, Renee Michelle. It’s unclear what the rules are as of now, but it could be another term for tornado tag.

The Raw Tag Team Championships will be on the line tonight as The Revival defend the silver against The Uso’s and The O.C in a triple threat. This is an exciting match that has the potential to really shake things up ahead of SummerSlam.

Speaking of The O.C, the next challenger to AJ Styles’ United States Championship will be determined in a gauntlet match featuring Ricochet, Cesaro, Rey Mysterio, Sami Zayn, and Andrade. It’s highly unlikely the tale of Styles Vs. Ricochet is over quite yet, so expect the one and only to come out on top.

Elsewhere tonight, Samoa Joe and Roman Reigns take part in a “Samoan Summit”, Alexa Bliss battles Becky Lynch, and Seth Rollins takes on Dolph Ziggler. It’s a stacked card for Raw and it’s not often we know most of the matches ahead of time.

Monday Night Raw

Raw begins with a promo video all about the WWE 24/7 Championship, showing some of the best highlights since the title was introduced.

We go live to the arena and the ring is surrounded by Superstars. Drake Maverick and his wife come down to the ring for this mixed tag match, followed by the current 24/7 Champion, R-Truth, and Carmella come to the ring.

24/7 Championship
Mosh Pit Mixed Tag Team Match
(C) R-Truth & Carmella Vs. Drake Maverick & Renee Michelle

Renee Michelle hits Carmella before the bell even rings, but then the ladies are sent to the aprons. The match gets underway and Maverick attempts to roll-up Truth to no avail.

Truth catches Maverick with a hip toss, followed by a split-leg drop, then a regular leg drop for a two count. Truth dances to taunt Maverick, then flips him over the ropes but he’s caught by Superstars on the outside. They carry Maverick around the ring before setting him on the apron, where Truth flips him into the ring.

Truth’s pinfall attempt is broken-up by Michelle, prompting Carmella to run in and attack her. Maverick and Truth separate them, but then Carmella slaps Maverick. Truth hits him with a facebuster suplex for the win.

Winner: R-Truth

After the match is over, all the Superstars that surround the ring climb in and they all get on top of Truth like a dog-pile and the referee counts to three. There’s some confusion but then Mike Kanellis rolls out of the mosh pit and he’s got the title. Mike Kanellis is the WWE 24/7 Champion. Kanellis runs to the back and he’s chased by all the other Superstars, except Truth and Maverick. He locks himself in a room until Maria walks up yelling and tells them to leave, faking stomach problems. She bangs on the door, telling him to let her in. He asks who it is and she says she will knock down the door and kick him in the vagina if he doesn’t let her in. Mike opens the door.

Still to come, Becky Lynch faces Alexa Bliss, Seth Rollins battles Dolph Ziggler, and “The Samoan Summit” featuring Roman Reigns and Samoa Joe.

Now however, it’s time for a gauntlet match to determine the number one contender to AJ Styles’ United States Championship. Rey Mysterio is the first man out, meaning Rey will have to defeat four other Superstars if he looks to get the title opportunity. That match, is up next!

Winner: Ricochet

Ricochet is once again the number one contender to the WWE United States Championship. We see replays of the match, then Kayla Braxton comes into the ring for an interview. Ricochet says when he beat Samoa Joe to become the United States Champion nobody could believe it. But if there’s anything he’s learned in his career, it’s that people only believe what they see. So, at SummerSlam, when he beats AJ Styles, then everyone will believe in him again. And so will he. We see AJ Styles laughing backstage.

Mike and Maria Kanellis are backstage and he’s so proud of himself. He says he won the title for them and now she can be proud of him. Maria tells him to get onto his back, like he usually does. She says she wants to pin him so that their unborn child has a real Champion for a parent. Mike reluctantly lies down and Maria puts a foot on his chest. Maria Kanellis is the 24/7 Champion. Maria is the first-ever pregnant Champion in WWE and she walks down the hallway yelling it. Other Superstars are watching and she goads them to attack her. She says, this week, she will be at her OBGYM appointment, so someone could pin her during it.

After the break, we’re getting A Moment of Bliss, with allegedly shocking footage.
