WWE Raw Results – August 5, 2019

It’s Monday night and that means it’s time for some Raw Results courtesy of Ringside News!

Ladies and gentlemen, we’re just one week away from SummerSlam, which is crazy because WrestleMania feels like it just happened. Regardless, that means this is the final Raw before WWE rolls into Toronto and the biggest talking point tonight is The Beast. The WWE Universal Champion, Brock Lesnar, decimated Seth Rollins on Raw last week. It was the best beat-down we’ve seen since Braun Strowman annihilated Roman Reigns a few years back. Rollins was taken to hospital, following multiple F5’s and WWE has said the Architect won’t be 100% heading into the show of the summer. WWE would be wise to not have Rollins show on Raw this week but I think we all know that isn’t going to happen.

One of the marquee matches for SummerSlam is Charlotte Flair against WWE Hall of Famer, Trish Stratus. These two will go head-to-head on Sunday night, but tonight on Raw Trish teams with Natalya to take on the team of Charlotte and Becky Lynch. Of course, Natalya and Lynch are feuding right now, and will fight for the Raw Women’s Championship on Sunday, so this ties everything up in a neat little bow. Although it’s interesting see Lynch being treated as a full heel.

As for the rest of tonight’s show, WWE is teasing further developments in the Roman Reigns/forklift fiasco, more from the pregnant ball-buster and 24/7 Champion, Maria, and continued celebrations by The O.C. All that and more to look forward to tonight, and you can let us know how you feel about all of it by leaving a comment, following us on Instagram or Twitter, or by downloading the Ringside News app. Enjoy the show!

Monday Night Raw

WWE Raw opens with the WWE roster, including Triple H, standing on the stage. They ask for a minute of silence and a 10-bell salute in remembrance of the El Paso and Dayton shootings this past weekend. 

After the memorial, we see a brand new video intro for Raw with a Papa Roach song. The video ends a second early as Samoa Joe is standing on the announce table yelling into a microphone.

Joe says he is out here to right some wrongs. Joe says for the past week he’s had his phone blowing up with people accusing him of attacking Roman Reigns on SmackDown Live. He yells at the announcers to tell him what proof there is of him being there and attacking Roman. Graves says it was found to be an accident, so he understands Joe’s anger, but it does seem like something he’d do. And Michael Cole says there was a poll that showed 80% of the WWE Universe think there was foul play suspected and Joe is the most likely culprit. That pisses Joe off and he calls 80% of the WWE Univese, “idiots”. He asks them to show the footage, so we take a look back at SmackDown Live, where some rigging equipment collapsed on Roman.

Back live, Joe says he didn’t see a single frame of footage with him in it. His good name has been besmirched and he’s going to wait here tonight until Roman Reigns arrives and gives him the apology he deserves. He’s about to say if anyone has a problem with that, but Becky Lynch’s music hits and cuts him off.

Lynch makes her way to the ring for tag team action, followed by her frenemy, Charlotte. Natalya is out next, then comes her tag partner, Hall of Famer, Trish Stratus. Later tonight, The Miz and Dolph Ziggler have a contract signing with Shawn Michaels, The Beast is live, and The IIconics put their Women’s Tag Team Championships on the line.

*Commercial Break*

We return live and Michael Cole announces that Becky Lynch Vs. Natalya at SummerSlam will be a Submission Match.

Becky Lynch & Charlotte Flair Vs. Natalya & Trish Stratus

The match gets underway with Becky Lynch and Natalya. They exchange in a shoving match right off the bat, followed by Natalya taking her down in an arm bar. Natalya continues to out-wrestle Becky and even gets her in an armbar like Ronda Rousey but Lynch gets out and rolls her up. Lynch looks for the Sharpshooter but can’t lock it in.

Flair tags herself in and Lynch isn’t pleased. Charlotte chops Nattie repeatedly before she’s caught with a snapmare. Natalya runs over Charlotte’s back but then Flair trips her and connects with a big boot. Flair taunts Trish on the apron as she stomps Natalya around the ring. Flair delivers a knee and applies a neck crank to Natalya.

Natalya starts to fight out but Flair knocks her down, then teases tagging Becky but doesn’t do it. The fans boo as Charlotte taunts them and delivers right forearms to Natalya. Flair looks for a bodyslam but Natalya lands on her feet behind her. Charlotte delivers an elbow and goes for an Honor Roll but gets kicked off and headbutts the turnbuckles. Natalya looks for the Sharpshooter but Flair gets out, only for Nattie to deliver a discus clothesline.

Natalya looks to make the tag to Stratus but Flair holds her foot, then takes a swing at Trish but the Hall of Famer jumps off the apron. Flair hits Natalya with an exploder suplex, then hits the ropes but Becky tags herself in. Flair cold-cocks Lynch from behind, then leaves the ring and walks off from the match. Natalya uses the distraction to get Becky in the Sharpshooter. The Women’s Champion screams in agony but she gets to the ropes. Natalya refuses to let go of the hold and earns a disqualification.

Winners Via Disqualification: Becky Lynch & Charlotte Flair

After the referee calls for the bell, Natalya drags Lynch into the middle of the ring and cinches it in. Stratus runs into the ring and pulls Natalya off, only to be shoves into the ropes for her troubles. Nattie walks off as Trish tries to help Becky to her feet.

We see a replay of last week’s Gauntlet Match when Andrade ripped Rey Mysterio’s mask off. Mysterio will attempt to extract revenge, after the break!

Rey Mysterio Vs. Andrade W/Zelina Vega

The bell rings and Andrade runs at Rey, who hits him with a Russian leg sweep. Mysterio unloads on Andrade but gets caught with a tilt-a-whirl backbreaker. Rey dropkicks Andrade and he falls on the ropes but comes off before Rey can hit the 619. Mysterio hurricanrana’s Andrade into the turnbuckles but Andrade comes back with a lariat.

Andrade gets Rey in the corner and delivers some knees. Rey counters Andrade with an arm-drag through the ropes, then Rey slides belly-first out of the ring and hits Andrade with a sunset flip powerbomb into the barricade!

*Commercial Break*

Back live and we see Rey take-down Andrade for a near-fall. Mysterio takes to the apron, connects with an enziguiri, then goes up top and hits a seated senton. Rey lands a hurricanrana, then reverses a sunset flip with a kick to the head for another two count. Mysterio hits a sunset bomb for another near-fall. Andrade chops the chest of Rey, then connects with a fake-out kick into a back elbow. Andrade climbs up the ropes but Rey climbs up with him and punches him. Andrade hits Rey into the tree of woe, then delivers a double foot stomp for a near-fall.

Mysterio hits a springboard and Andrade catches him on his shoulders but Rey counters with a crucifix driver for a near-fall. Mysterio looks for a hurricanrana but Andrade holds him and throws him off with a powerbomb. Andrade delivers double knees in the corner for a near-fall and Vega can’t believe it. Andrade grabs Rey but gets hit with a Canadian Destroyer for a near-fall.

Rey knocks Andrade onto the ropes and connects with 619. Zelina Vega distracts Rey for a moment, then Mysterio hits the senton from the top rope but Andrade gets his knees up. Mysterio hits the senton and scores a two count. Andrade fires back with a powerbomb and then tries to rip the mask off. The referee pulls him off, allowing Zelina Vega to stunner Rey on the ropes. Andrade then hits his Hammerlock DDT for the win!

Winner: Andrade

Still to come, Miz TV’s contract signing, Brock Lesnar appearing live, and a match between Cedric Alexander and Drew McIntyre with Kurt Angle as guest referee.

We see a replay of last week’s 24/7 Championship Mosh Pit Match, followed by Mike Kanellis winning the title and his wife taking it from him. We see Mike and Maria at her OB GYN appointment earlier today. Maria is talking proudly about being the first-ever pregnant 24/7 Champion. She is invited in for her exam and she tells Mike to follow her.

*Commercial Break*

We’re back with Mike and Maria getting her OB GYN exam. He’s rubbing her head and she tells him to look alive, to have the eye of the tiger, to make sure that her baby stays the Champion. Maria relaxes and lays down on the table, where Mike hugs and kisses her. The doctor comes in and pats Mike in the back three times… the doctor is the female referee from NXT and she counted it. Mike Kanellis is the 24/7 Champion. Mike walks out of the doctor’s office back into the waiting room and he’s so happy he won the title. As he’s standing, exclaiming his disbelief, we see a disguised R-Truth and Carmella sitting nearby. Mike notices them and says he can’t believe they followed him here. Truth has a fake baby bump. Truth says his water just broke, then reaches under his dress and pulls out a baby doll. He throws it in the air, so Mike drops his title and grabs the baby. Truth rolls him up and the doctor/referee comes out and counts the pinfall. R-Truth is the 24/7 Champion. Truth yells “you’ve got your baby, now I got mine!” then he runs off with Carmella on his back.

We see Becky Lynch backstage for an interview and she says she plans on embarrassing Natalya in her home country. But that’s nothing new because she’s been a let-down to Canada for her whole career. She says that, while Natalya was out there in a bikini on reality TV and perfecting her duck-face on Instagram, she was out there perfecting her craft. She says she won’t tap out to the Sharpshooter, but she guarantees that Natalya will tap.

Natalya is also backstage with a different interviewer, and she says she can’t wait until SummerSlam because it will be a huge celebration when she makes Lynch tap out.

Brock Lesnar is shown walking backstage with Paul Heyman, he’ll be live next!
