Welcome to Ringside News’ lives results coverage for WWE RAW on June 8th, 2020.
Tonight’s RAW is the final such show before WWE Backlash on Sunday. And to serve as the final push for the “greatest wrestling match ever”, Edge will appear on a special edition of The Peep Show. It’s been a long time since we’ve had an episode of The Peep Show, and who knows what Christian will have in store for his best friend.
That isn’t the only talk-show happening tonight however, as we can also expect the V.I.P Lounge with MVP and his guest, Bobby Lashley. This Sunday, Lashley will face Drew McIntyre for the WWE Championship, so expect some fireworks from the Scottish Psycopath and the Almighty.
Elsewhere tonight, The Viking Raiders and the Street Profits will face each other in a decathalon, Rey Mysterio will appear to clarify if he plans to retire, Sasha Banks and Bayley appear as new Women’s Tag Team Champions, and former NXT Women’s Champion Charlotte Flair battles Asuka once more.
And that’s the preview for tonight’s RAW. You can follow along on the Ringside News app, and join us on Twitter and Instagram. Enjoy the show!
WWE RAW opens with the RAW Women’s Champion, Asuka, coming to the ring.

Asuka is expecting her opponent, Charlotte, but instead Sasha Banks and Bayley come to the ring. Asuka tells them this is her ring and she wants to fight. Sasha tells her to back-up but out comes Charlotte. Flair tells Bayley and Banks to make the most of the spotlight before they lose the belts again. Flair tells them to move on because everyone wants to see her and Asuka fight.
The IIconics come out and say the real match people want to see is the Women’s Tag Team Championship match at Backlash. Charlotte says that no matter how many titles Banks and Bayley have, they’ll always be garbage. The Champs hit Flair, and The IIconics attack Asuka. Flair and Asuka clear the ring.

We see a replay of Seth Rollins’ retirement ceremony for Rey Mysterio last week. Rey will give an injury update after the break. Seth Rollins comes out and joins the commentary team so that he can talk to Rey.
Rey is live from his home and he says his eye is healing but there’s no time frame for him competing. But he has a warning for Seth: he’s not going to wait to hit the 619 at the end of the match, he’s going to hit it right away. He’s going to kick Seth’s ass.
Seth says Rey doesn’t understand. He could have walked away a legend. So he’s inviting him to RAW next week, along with Dominik. So that he can see he walk away and realise his injury was for the greater good. Rey says Seth is only inviting him because he can’t compete. Seth begins to disagree but Aleister Black appears out of nowhere and dives on Seth as we take a break.
Austin Theory & Murphy Vs. Aleister Black & Humberto Carrillo
Austin and Humberto start proceedings. Carrillo hits an arm-drag but Theory comes back with a rolling dropkick. Both make tags and both hit a flurry of strikes.
Black hits a springboard moonsault and looks for Black Mass but Theory distracts him and gets knocked to the floor. Carrillo hits a rocket suicide dive into the barricade, then Black drops Murphy with a switch knee for the win.
Winners: Aleister Black & Humberto Carrillo
Rey Mysterio’s music hits but Seth comes out wearing his mask. The distraction allows Murphy and Theory to attack Black and Carrillo. ATL from Theory takes out Carrillo, then Murphy knees Black. Seth directs a beating and hits a Stomp himself.

Charly Caruso interviews Randy Orton backstage and she asks how does he prepare for a match with such high expectations. Orton says the only thing he’s interested in is if Edge will be the only guest on The Peep Show. She says he will be and Orotn says he’ll be there too.
