Welcome to Ringside News’ live results coverage of WWE RAW on June 13th.
Tonight’s RAW is the last before The Horror Show at Extreme Rules, and so we have the final build towards the PPV. Seth Rollins will face Kevin Owens, following Owens’ involvement in the feud last week, before he faces Rey Mysterio in a bizarre eye-for-an-eye match.
The biggest match tonight will see The Kabuki Warriors face Bayley and Sasha Banks for the Women’s Tag Team Championships. At Extreme Rules, Asuka will defend her RAW Women’s Championship against Banks, but tonight she has the chance to flip the tables on Bayley and become a double Champ.
Elsewhere tonight, The Viking Raiders will face Angel Garza and Andrade. And, quite randomly, Randy Orton will face R-Truth. And that’s all we know about tonight’s RAW. Follow along here for the live results and enjoy the show!
This week’s RAW opens with MVP already in the ring for an edition of The V.I.P. Lounge.
MVP welcomes us to the show and says his guest tonight is so much better than us. His guest has a heart so huge, that when Drew McIntyre was a bum on the street he took him in and made him the man he is today. And yet Drew is so disrespectful that he won’t even say thank you. MVP introduces the number one contender, Dolph Ziggler.
Dolph says he loves what MVP has done with the United States Championship. In fact, after he beats McIntyre on Sunday he will maybe get something similar done, maybe add a spinner. MVP then congratulates Dolph for his current status and how he hasn’t revealed the match stipulation yet.
Ziggler says he knows how to twist McIntyre’s pea-brain to make him get fired again. Ziggler then lists the ways in which he helped Drew become WWE Champion, and that McIntyre is thankless. MVP says he’ll do what Drew won’t, and he thanks Dolph with a handshake. Ziggler says it’s his lack of gratitude that will lead Drew to lose the WWE Championship.
McIntyre’s music hits and the WWE Champion comes to the ring. Drew tells MVP to relax and says he isn’t going to tear his set or Claymore him, tonight is about Dolph. McIntyre says he’s done a lot of soul-searching this past week, and he has come to the conclusion that Dolph uses people; Mandy Rose, Big E, and even himself. He uses everyone and throws them aside.
Dolph interrupts Drew and starts to mock his catchphrases but McIntyre tells him to shut up because they’re past that. Drew says he’s going to maim and torture Dolph, make him beg for forgiveness, and regret he ever called Heath Slater. But why wait to Sunday? He needs some action right now, then Drew jabs Ziggler in the mouth and walks off.
Charly Caruso is backstage with Angel Garza, Andrade, and Zelina Vega. She asks how they will get on the same page tonight and Vega says she’s pushing a false narrative that her clients aren’t on the same page. She reminds everyone that they beat The Viking Raiders, and teamed with Randy Orton to beat Big Show. No man can measure-up to Andrade or Garza, and women are beneath her. Vega insults Charly’s appearance but Garza interrupts and says he doesn’t have to choose between women. Andrade says together they will win the RAW Tag Team Titles.
The Viking Raiders appear and Erik says they’ve been the most dominant team for over a year, and they’ve dishonoured them. So tonight, they run through them. Caruso says she got distracted by Ivar’s charms, so the Viking takes Garza’s rose and hands it to her. Charly swoons as Garza looks furious.
The match starts with Andrade and Ivar. Andrade works on Ivar with a chop block and some attacks to the legs, then tags his partner somewhat reluctantly. Garza comes in and kicks Ivar, then rips his pants off, but Ivar ducks a lariat and tags Erik.
The Viking comes in hot and knocks Andrade off the apron before kneeing Garza in the jaw. Tag to Ivar and Erik throws him into Garza in the corner for a two-count. Apparently if someone gets pinned in this match it becomes a two-on-one affair. Erik is legal again and he beats Garza into the corner but gets hit with a superkick.
Andrade gets the tag and he hits running knees to Erik in the corner, then Garza knocks Ivar off the apron. Andrade hits the Hammerlock DDT for the pin and Erik has been eliminated. Ivar gets into the ring as we head to the break.
Back live and Andrade makes a tag to Garza but Ivar hits him and tosses Andrade out. Ivar attempts a suicide dive but Garza dropkicks him in mid-air. Garza offers Andrade a fist-bump and as he accepts it Ivar comes flying through the ropes and takes both out.
Back inside the ring, Ivar looks for the handspring elbow but Andrade shoves Garza out of the way and takes it himself. Garza hits a shotgun dropkick but Ivar responds with a right hand and Angel falls like a tree. Andrade gets a tag again and shoves Garza out of the way again but Ivar drops him for a pin and we’re down to one-on-one.
Garza comes off the top rope with a dropkick to Ivar. Garza hits a superkick but Ivar hits the same kick that beat Andrade. Ivar goes for the pin but Andrade puts Angel’s foot on the bottom rope. Ivar attempts a seated senton but Garza counters with a powerbomb for the win!
Sarah Schreiber interviews Ruby Riott backstage but before she can speak, The IIconics appear and shoo her. Peyton says Ruby abandoned her only friend and now she’s all alone. Kay reminds her that they both beat her, and later tonight they will both beat her. Peyton says the tag match will become a handicap because Ruby has no friends. Ruby says “that’s your cue”, and up walks Bianca Belair. Ruby lets Bianca introduce herself and she says she’s hear to help her pal.
The match starts with Ruby and Peyton, and Kay swings a cheap shot but Ruby avoids it and elbows Peyton. Roll-up from Ruby for a two-count, then two more. Arm-drag and a standing STO from Riott earns a two-count.
Bianca Belair just misses a tag, Kay tags in and drops Ruby with a big boot. Kay drops Ruby but she gets the tag and the EST. comes in hot with big kicks and a shoulder tackle to Kay. Bianca hits a body slam and taunts Peyton, then hits a handspring splash but Royce breaks the pin attempt. Peyton gets involved but Ruby takes her out and Bianca hits the K.O.D to Billie for the win.
R-Truth is shown walking backstage and he stops to congratulate Ricochet for being the RAW MVP. Ricochet says he’s wrestling Bobby Lashley with MVP. Truth says that’s what he said. Cedric says Truth should be more concerned about Randy Orton. Truth laughs and says he’s facing Ric Flair tonight, not Randy. Cedric and Ricochet inform Truth that he has to face The Viper, The Legend Killer, not Ric Flair. Truth says he has to go.
Truth walks into Akira Tozawa and says he needs to learn how to become a black belt in 6-7 minutes. Tozawa refuses, then tries to roll him up but Truth kicks out. Ninja’s run up to help Akira but Ricochet and Cedric run up and pose like the ninja’s beside Truth. R-Truth yells at Tozawa to go to the ring so they can settle it.
Truth comes down to the ring and Tozawa is already there with his ninja’s. Truth asks why Akira needs his ninja’s but out comes Shayna Baszler!
Baszler comes down to the ring and takes off her jacket. Akira sends his ninja’s at her and she takes them out one-by-one. Tozawa flees, and Baszler turns her attention on Truth. He says he’ll let himself out and tosses her the microphone.
Baszler says she has been really patient, allowing everyone to have their fun. But she is done. All these weak-minded women Champions are deluding themselves, thinking they’re in control. That she’s a distant memory. Well the Queen of Spades is here to shatter that illusion and hit them with a hard dose of reality.
Seth Rollins is backstage with Murphy, and the disciple asks if Seth and Rey are going to literally try to blind each other. Seth says nothing of significance happens without sacrifice, and Rey asked for this. Rollins tells him to stay backstage and focus on his match later, he has a message to deliver.
We see a sneak peak of the new WWE Battlegrounds game, which releases on September 18th.
The Monday Night Messiah comes to the ring. He says an eye-for-an-eye over and over again, but asks what it means. He says he knows what it means but when Rey said it he thought it was a metaphor for revenge. But he has come to understand that Rey meant it literally, and he’s trying to comprehend how they got to this point. All he is trying to do is lead Monday Night RAW to a brighter future. And now they’re at a point where he has to pluck Rey Mysterio’s eyeball from his socket to win.
Never before has a stipulation so barbaric been sanctioned, and what he needs everyone to understand is that he never meant to harm Rey. He did everything in his power to fulfil the prophecy but Rey resisted. This year Extreme Rules is called The Horror Show and that’s what it’s going to be because Rey has forced his hand for the last time, and he will be forced to gouge until he is blind. Rey will never see his son get married, or see his wife’s face again. Never see another sunrise or sunset. Extreme Rules will be the end of Rey Mysterio, but it will be a new beginning for Monday Night Raw RAW.
Kevin Owens interrupts Rollins and comes to the ring with a microphone. He says he needs to tell Seth that he thought Rey would pick a Last Man Standing match or a cage match, he could never have predicted what he chose. But, as disturbed as it makes him, what disturbs him more is that Seth has made a man so respected by the entire industry, want to gouge an eye out. But he understands where Rey is coming from because he was willing to end his own career at WrestleMania to shut Seth up. But don’t worry, because he has him covered, and he hands him an eye patch.
Rollins says it isn’t funny and calls on Murphy to come out and help him but Aleister Black runs out and attacks Murphy as he’s on his way to the ring. The two brawl as we head to the break.
We return and this match is underway, with Murphy beating Black in the corner. Black fires back with a few big kicks to the chest but Murphy drops him with a kick to the knee. Aleister rolls to the apron and Murphy dragon whips his leg around the ropes.
Murphy comes off the top but Black kicks him in mid-air. The two of them trade shots in the middle of the ring and Murphy looks for the dragon whip again but Black dodges it and drops him with a roll and a dropkick. Black lifts Murphy with his boot but the disciple his a shoulderbreaker.
Black kicks Murphy to the apron. Murphy stands on the bottom rope and tries to suplex Black over the ropes to the floor but Aleister hits Black Mass! As Aleister goes for the pin Seth pulls him from the ring.
Just as soon as Seth slides into the ring, Rey Mysterio’s music hits and out he comes with Dominik. Seth is surrounded.
As soon as the bell rings, Rollins rolls outside but he’s surrounded on all sides, so he slides back in and KO begins the attack. Owens puts Seth in the corner and chops him, then whips him hard into the buckles.
Rollins begs for mercy but Owens denies it to him. Ko hits a lariat in the corner, followed by a cannonball for a two-count. Owens clobbers the back of Seth, then applies a submission. Seth fights out but gets dropped by KO, who then tosses him out of the ring.
Black, Rey, and Dominik surround Seth, so he jumps on the apron and Owens hits him. Seth manages to throw Owens outside, but KO sucker punches him and throws him into the barricade. Rollins keeps trying to escape but he’s surrounded. KO slams him into the apron, then the barricade again.
Owens gets Seth on his shoulders on the apron but Rollins slides off. Owens headbutts him but Seth chop-blocks him and KO rolls outside, where Seth hits a suicide dive. Rollins goes out after Owens and stares down the vultures.
Back live and Seth is in control of Owens, beating him around the ring and talking trash. Owens tries to rally but gets kicked in the gut and clocked with a forearm, but KO fires back with a superkick. Owens looks for another cannonball but Seth slams him into the buckles face-first, then hits a blockbuster for a near-fall.
Rollins looks for Avada Kadavra but Owens blocks it and hits one of his own. KO looks for a Pop-Up Powerbomb but Seth lands on his feet, kicks him in the gut, then hits Avada Kadavra for a near-fall. Both men attempt their finishers but Seth ends up on the top rope. KO goes after him but gets his eyes raked. Black causes a distraction, then Dominik and Rey do the same, allowing KO to get up and hit a Stunner for the win!
Rey gets on the microphone and says Seth tried to blind him, tried to end his career, and tried to blind his son. He crossed every line. So this Sunday, he will leave Extreme Rules with one eye.
Ric Flair is backstage and The Big Show approaches him. Flair says they need to talk. He says he has spent 28 years of his 48 year career with Big Show around. And when he thinks of the big guys in his career, Andre, Brodi, etc, he thinks of Big Show more than any of the others. He is above them all. The problem is that Show is picking a fight he can’t win now. You can’t do Hollywood, then come back and wrestle. He says he knows Big Show has his pride but nobody is going to think less of Big Show if he retires now, healthy. He tells him to give it some thought, go live the good life.
Big Show tells him he knows what he’s trying to do and he’s a master at it, the dirtiest player in the game. But he needs to know what he’s done to Randy, made him more ambitious and dangerous than ever. He has no empathy. But tonight he faces one of their friends, R-Truth. So is Ric willing to sacrifice his friendships so that Randy can be the legend killer again?
We get a lengthy video package reminding everyone just who The Legend Killer is. Orton is backstage and he says they say you’re lucky if you leave the industry with a handful of friends. And he had those friends. He had those pals he bled with, sweated with, and travelled up and down the road with. He had Edge, Christian, Big Show, and Ric Flair.
Edge came back and he did what he had to do; he sent Edge back home to be a father and a husband. Then Christian came to RAW to defend his friend’s honour, and there’s nothing wrong with that, but he got selfish and accepted his challenge for one more match. And then there’s Big Show, a man he has incredible history with. Big Show was one of the first men who took him under his wing and showed him the ropes, but now he’s back trying to stand up for random guys in the locker room.
And Ric Flair? Ric is family to him. So it would be a real shame if Flair did anything to jeopardize their relationship and everything they’ve built. And now it’s R-Truth, a guy who everyone likes, who makes everyone laugh. But now Truth has to become just another chapter in the storied book of The Legend Killer. Flair walks up and tells Orton it’s time but he says he’ll be right behind, then watches Flair like he doesn’t trust him.
Truth comes to the ring, followed by Ric Flair. The Nature Boy congratulates Truth for an incredible career. So he wants him to know that Randy loves him as much as he does, which is why Randy won’t kick his head off tonight. He’s just gonna give him an RKO.
The bell rings and Truth doesn’t want none. He tells Randy to hold up, he needs to talk to Ric. Truth turns to Flair but Randy grabs him. Truth punches Orton, then looks for the spin kick but Orton dodges it and hits the RKO for the win.
Randy and Ric make to leave but Orton stops and goes back after Truth. Orton lines up a punt and Flair tries to stop him, but out comes Big Show. Orton grabs a microphone and tells Show to stop or he’ll end Truth’s career right now. He says he knows Show wants to break his bones but he should know that it hurt him when he punted Edge and Christian. He says he wasn’t going to punt Truth anyway, that kick had Show’s name on it. So how about next Monday they settle things with an unsanctioned match? Shows yells “OK!” and storms the ring but Orton retreats with Flair.
MVP and Lashley approach Ricochet and Cedric Alexander backstage. Cedric says he’s already told MVP he’s not interested, so he just holds up the United States Championship. Sarah Schrieber walks up and asks what MVP’s game plan is for Sunday. He says his win is a foregone conclusion, then him and Lashley will celebrate at an undisclosed location. Lashley says he guarantees Ricochet will be nursing his wounds after tonight, courtesy of the hurt business.
Sarah spots Drew McIntyre nearby, so she runs up and asks him how he prepares for a match without knowing the stipulation. Drew says he doesn’t care what Dolph chooses but Ziggler then attacks him from out of nowhere. They brawl around an empty PC ring before officials run up and try to separate them.
The bell rings and Ricochet flips off Lashley and hits an enziguiri but Lashley no-sells it. Lashley chases Ricochet out of the ring, then trips him up so he slams into the apron. Lashley slams Ricochet into the barricade and resets the ten count.
Back inside the ring following a slam into the apron, Bobby hits a shoulder tackle in the corner and stomps him down. Ricochet uses his speed to duck and dodge Lashley, then leaps for a crossbody but gets caught and hit with the spin-out Dominator for a near-fall.
Ricochet makes a comeback and hits a shooting star press. He goes up top and looks for the 630 but Lashley moves. Ricochet hits a springboard but gets caught in the full nelson and taps!
Lashley refuses to break, so in comes Cedric Alexander and he punches Bobby but he doesn’t let go. MVP runs in and Alexander kicks him, so Lashley grabs Cedric with the full nelson and slams him.
The announcers run down the card for The Horror Show At Extreme Rules.
Charly Caruso interviews a livid Big Show backstage and asks about the unsanctioned match with Randy. Big Show simply says he accepts and walks off.
Bayley and Sasha Banks come to the ring. Bayley says they wanted the RAW audience to see something special, so we see a tribute to the two of them.
