WWE Raw Results – August 12, 2019

We get a commercial for the upcoming King of the Ring tournament, which kicks-off next Monday night.

We get a video package, replaying the attacks on Roman Reigns. Tomorrow night Roman will face Buddy Murphy.

Natalya makes her way to the ring, with her arm in a sling. Highlights are shown of her match against Becky Lynch last night. Natalya says she faced Becky Lynch last night and tapped out. She says Lynch outwrestled her and was the better woman on the night. Natalya says she has a dislocated elbow and will have an MRI soon. But she doesn’t take back anything she said about Becky Lynch and they will fight again when this is over. Natalya now wants to share a story. Last night her dad (Jim Neidhart) came to her in her dream and said he was proud of her. Natalya reminds us it’s been a year since her dad died.

Seth Rollins cuts a promo backstage and says that AJ wants to prove he is the best Champion. But maybe AJ has forgotten that he did what he couldn’t: beat Brock Lesnar…twice. And he beat AJ at Money In The Bank. So tonight he’s going to Stomp his head once again, and remind him who the real Champion is.
