Welcome to Ringside News’ WWE Raw Results for September 16th, 2019.

Tonight’s show is to be headlined by the King of the Ring final match between Baron Corbin and Chad Gable. Gable has been the underdog of the tournament and put on some great performances, while Corbin is the dastardly heel who cheated his way here. It’s been a great tournament and tonight it culminates!

Elsewhere tonight, we get the fallout from last night’s Clash of Champions PPV. Seth and Braun Strowman lost the Tag Team Championship’s to Bobby Roode and Dolph Ziggler, and then Seth retained over Braun in the main event. Of course, almost all of that was overshadowed by the ending of the show in which Bray Wyatt, The Fiend, attacked Rollins and left him lying on the stage. Bray will be challenging Seth for the Universal Championship at Hell In A Cell next month, so expect the mind games to truly begin tonight.

Elsewhere tonight, Becky Lynch must respond to the $10,000 fine she incurred for beating Sasha Banks after their no contest finish last night. The Street Profits are hosting a gender reveal party for Maria Kanellis’ baby. And Cedric Alexander seeks revenge on AJ Styles and The O.C. for the beatdown they put on him after the match last night.


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


Monday Night Raw opens with the WWE Universal Champion, Seth Rollins.

Rollins comes to the ring and says that Knoxville is loud tonight. He says they have a lot to unpack; last night he and Braun Strowman lost the WWE Tag Team Championships, but they didn’t have time to focus on that. Because they faced each other in the main event with the Universal Championship on the line. Seth says Braun is very big, very strong, and gave him the fight of his life. He says he had to give Braun four Stomps and a Pedigree in order to win. But he didn’t even have time to take-in his win because he was cloaked in darkness and taken out.

The crowd chants “yowie wowie”. Seth says yowie wowie indeed, because the last thing he saw was the face of The Fiend. And when the lights came up, surprise, surprise, Bray was nowhere to be found. But it doesn’t matter because in three weeks he faces Bray inside Hell In A Cell.

Bray Wyatt appears live on the Titantron for a Firefly Fun House. Bray welcome the fireflies to the show and says he can’t believe he’s seeing his future best friend, Seth Rollins. He says he’s glad that Rollins is OK, and Seth questions that and calls him a sick dude. Ramblin’ Rabbit appears and tells Seth to run, so Bray clobbers him. Bray says that name-calling isn’t nice, and he’s made mistakes but so has Seth. And you have to forgive but he never forgets. And that’s why The Fiend probably attacked Seth last night and who knows, maybe he’ll have more to say tonight? Bray then looks dead into the screen for a minute as the camera zooms in. We see The Fiend super-imposed over Bray, then he stares again before laughing and the segment ends.

We see the graphics for the King of the Ring final, as well as an upcoming match between the Women’s Tag Team Champions, Alexa Bliss and Nikki Cross, and Sasha Banks and Bayley. The graphics are upside down but it seems like they’re implying it’s the work of The Fiend.

Braun Strowman is shown walking backstage. Charly Caruso stops him and asks what his intentions are tonight. Braun says the next man who steps in the ring is going to get his hands.

*Commercial Break*

The new Raw Tag Team Champions, Dolph Ziggler and Robert Roode, make their way to the ring. The new SmackDown Live Tag Team Champions, The Revival, also make their way to the ring.

Roode says that nobody could have predicted last night, yet here they are. He tells everyone to take a look at your new tag champs. Braun Strowman’s music interrupts, and The Monster stomps to the ring. The Revival leave the ring and attempt to fight him on the ramp but both men get floored. Strowman comes into the ring and drops Ziggler with a big boot. Roode and Dolph leave the ring, so Braun runs around the ring shoulder tackling Ziggler, Dash, Dawson, and tries to hit Roode but the Glorious one retreats up the ramp. Well that’s one way to bury all your Tag Team Champions.

We see Alexa Bliss and Nikki Cross drinking from mugs backstage. Bliss says Sasha trashes things they can’t hold onto, to which Cross says Banks thinks she’s still the Tag Champion, and Bayley agrees. Bliss says that is because Bayley is an idiot, and tonight they show them who the real Champions are.

The O.C. make their way to the ring for six man tag team action.

*Commercial Break*

We see the entrances for Alexander and The Viking Raiders.

Winners: The O.C.

As soon as the bell rings, AJ starts kicking Alexander. The Raiders come in to stop it but The O.C. come in and a brawl breaks out.

Meanwhile AJ goes to the top rope but Cedric Alexander meets him there and punches AJ silly. Alexander looks to his Styles with a hurricanrana but gets hit with a Styles Clash from the middle rope!

We see a video from earlier today, when Carmella and R-Truth visited the University of Tennessee. They’re checking out the women’s basketball hall of fame, which has a huge basketball on top of the building. Truth is asking Carmella how heavy the ball must be and worries that it might fall on their head. Kane walks up, well technically Knox County Mayor, Glen Jacobs, and Truth has no idea who he is. Truth asks him how big the female basketball players were to dribble that huge ball. Kane asks him if he wants to go for a ride in a limo and Truth agrees, saying it isn’t every day you get to ride in a limo with the President! Carmella was covering her face several times during that, hiding laughter.

Baron Corbin makes his entrance for the King of the Ring finale!

Winner and King of the Ring: Baron Corbin

We see replays as Baron Corbin climbs to his feet. Chad Gable sits on his knees and laments his loss. The referee helps Corbin to the top of the stage, where he looks at the throne, crown, robe, and sceptre but then the camera cuts away and we don’t get to see him put it on.

The Street Profits are backstage and they’re partying with others for the gender reveal. It’s coming up next!

*Commercial Break*

We’re back and Mike is still sitting on the ring apron. Maria is on the stage and she asks what it’s going to take? She says Ricochet isn’t the father but she thought that telling Mike that would light a father under him. But now it’s time she tells the world who the real father is. And you’ll never guess who…

Rusev marches to the ring, a lot slimmer than before. Mike gets on the microphone and tells Rusev to leave him alone. He says he’s having a bad day and night, and he doesn’t want to fight.
