WWE Raw Results – Sep 23, 2019

Welcome to Ringside News’ WWE Raw Results for September 23rd, 2019.

The main event for tonight’s Raw is a Fatal 5-Way to determine who will challenge Seth Rollins for the Universal Championship next week on Raw. This match features Ricochet, AJ Styles, Rey Mysterio, Robert Roode, and Shinsuke Nakamura. This is an odd development when Bray is suppose to face Seth at Hell In A Cell, it seems like a random ploy to grab ratings for a week. Regardless, this should be a fun match.

Speaking of Bray Wyatt, we’re also being teased a new episode of Firefly Fun House. Last week we got quite a lot of Firefly Fun House, so tonight should be the same. We can probably expect Seth Rollins to react to being intimidated last week.

Also tonight, we’re going to see Nikki Cross Vs. Sasha Banks, and a rematch between Baron Corbin and Chad Gable. That’s all been announced so far for tonight’s show, but it should be a fun one. Remember to follow us on Instagram and Twitter, and download the Ringside News app. Enjoy the show!

WWE Raw

Monday Night Raw opens with a recap of last week’s Raw, when The Fiend attacked Kane and intimidated Seth Rollins. The intro graphic to Raw was warped like the Firefly Funhouse segments.

The WWE Universal Champion, Seth Rollins, makes his way to the ring. Seth says he has done and seen a lot in the last seven years but he’s never felt what he did last week when The Fiend stared at him. He calls Bray the living nightmare and says he couldn’t do anything but close his eyes and hope it was a bad dream. But it’s not.

In two weeks he has to step inside Hell In A Cell and defend his Universal Championship against The Fiend. He says we all know that match shortens careers but against Bray Wyatt it’s even worse. So what does he do? He does what he always does; survival and prevail. Seth says he did it against Brock Lesnar and against Braun Strowman and he will do just that at Hell In A Cell.

Braun Strowman stomps to the ring and stares at Rollins. The arena chants “get these hands”. Braun says if Seth has something to say he can say it to his face. Because unlike Bray Wyatt, he doesn’t pretend to be Mr. Rogers. Seth starts to talk but Braun cuts him off. He says last week Seth says he hoped Bray didn’t get a rematch, but Seth denies it. Rollins says he has a lot on his plate but the way Braun came out here, he’d happily face him tonight. Braun agrees to the match and says that tonight Seth gets his hands.

Still to come, Nikki Cross Vs. Sasha Banks, Chad Gable Vs. Baron Corbin, and a Fatal 5-Way to determine the number one contender to Seth Rollins. The Viking Raiders make their way to the ring.
