Welcome to Ringside News’ live results, highlights, winners and reactions for the June 14th, 2021 episode of WWE RAW.
Start time for tonight’s show is 8:00 PM EST. Match-by-match highlights and results from the show will take place on this very page, so you should update frequently to get the latest happenings. Feel free to leave any reactions in the comment section below.
This is the final RAW before the annual Hell In A Cell PPV and Drew McIntyre gets one heck of a warm-up match when he faces AJ Styles. We could well see the All Mighty WWE Champion getting involved in this one. RK-Bro will also be in action as they take on The New Day in their… budding rivalry.
Last week Alexa Bliss mentally tortured Shayna Baszler to end the show, and we can assume she’ll be back to haunt the Queen of Spades tonight. Of course, the biggest aspect of tonight’s show will be the debut of the returning Eva Marie. The red-headed diva was with WWE from 2013-2017 and she makes her triumphant return tonight in what we can only assume will be the main event.
That’s the preview for tonight’s RAW. Our live coverage will begin from 8PM right here. Let us know if you’re excited about any of it and remember to hit the refresh link below and enjoy the show!
The show begins and we’re in Alexa’s Playground. She giggles and recounts what happened with Shayna Baszler last week. In light of what happened and the fact that WWE is going back on the road, Lilly has been put in timeout. Nia Jax appears and Bliss asks how Baszler is. Nia says Shayna will see her Sunday and it’s time she cut the crap. They were friends and she knows the real her. Alexa says that’s a disgusting lie, they were never friends. Nia challenges her to a match tonight. Bliss pretends to cry and apologizes, but then starts laughing and says she accepts.
We go live to the ThunderDome and the announcers mention that tonight on RAW Drew McIntyre faces AJ Styles, Rhea Ripley battles Asuka, and The New Day face-off against The New Day. Nikki Cross comes to the ring and we see replays of her recent run-ins with Ripley and Charlotte. Flair is interviewed backstage and she says Rhea is a great competitor and they’ll have the match of the night on Sunday, but Ripley lacks focus. Before that however, she needs to have her loss to Cross cleared from her record.
They lock-up and Charlotte slams Cross down and out comes Rhea Ripley. Charlotte is distracted and Cross rolls her up but the Queen kicks out. Cross is whipped into the corner and Charlotte knocks her out of the ring. Charlotte gets out of the ring and slams Nikki into the barricade, then stares at Ripley before kicking Cross in the chest. Flair gets her back inside but her attention is on the RAW Women’s Champion.
Ripley is now sitting at ringside as Charlotte grinds Cross down with a submission. Cross fights up and catches her with a tilt-a-whirl cradle for a two-count. Charlotte chokes Cross on the middle rope and chops her in the corner. Flair sets Cross on the top rope but gets punched backwards, then Nikki grabs her for a tornado DDT and Charlotte rolls outside.
Cross goes to the apron and dives at Charlotte but gets caught. Charlotte blows Rhea a kiss before hitting a fallaway slam. Charlotte poses at ringside and stares at Ripley with her arms out… not realising that the referee’s count is building. Cross manages to roll inside and Flair doesn’t realise until the referee rings the bell!
Charlotte is pissed after the match and she cuts a fleeing Nikki off with a big boot. Charlotte gets her back inside and beats on her until Ripley grabs her from behind and hits the Riptide.
Riddle is backstage talking to Jeff Hardy and asks for advice. Jeff says it’s all about teamwork, continuity and trust. Jeff tells Riddle to listen to Orton because he’s a veteran and it shows respect. Riddle rants about playing music with Jeff, Xavier Woods and Randy, then Orton shows up. Randy tells him to stop trying to be him and that he should just be himself. Riddle says that means he likes him and Orton says it doesn’t.
John rushes Hardy in the opening but Hardy quickly forces him back into the corner and beats on him. Morrison knocks Haryd back and follows-up with a capoeira clothesline. Cedric Alexander comes out and Morrison stares at him before unloading some ground-and-pound on Jeff. Morrison whips Jeff and leap frogs him but Hardy hits a leg drop for a two-count.
Hardy gets whipped to the corner but boots Morrison down and lands a Whisper In The Wind for a near-fall. Hardy moves to the apron and drags John out with him and they struggle for control. Morrison slams Hardy into the ring, then lands Starship Pain for the win.
As soon as the match is over, Cedric Alexander gets on the microphone and he says he didn’t show Jeff respect last week and that’s not fair because he idolises him. But then he went and watched their match back and saw that Jeff was being disrespectful to him. He should have beaten his ass into a retirement home. Hardy grabs a microphone and says if Cedric can beat him right now, he’ll retire tonight!
We return and Jeff knocks Cedric out of the ring and dropkicks him through the ropes. Hardy puts Cedric back inside but gets caught coming through the ropes with a dragon screw. Alexander goes to work on the knee with submissions and stomps. Hardy rallies and hits a rope-assisted dropkick in the orner.

We see a video package hyping the upcoming Hell In A Cell match for the WWE Championship on Sunday.
Eva Maries comes down with an unknown woman wearing a blue leotard, who’s on the bigger side.
The bell rings and the new girl knocks Naomi down. Naomi fights back but her blows aren’t registering. The new girl shoves her back and hits a powerslam, then a senton. Naomi is squashed by a running crossbody and smashed with a Michonoku Driver and that’s that.
After the match, Marie takes the microphone and annnounces that she was the winner of the match.
We see Mandy Rose and Dana Brooke having a photoshoot backstage. Natalya and Tamina are wrestling in a ring nearby and the noise annoys Rose and Brooke, so they tell them to stop. Nattie and Tamina tell them their priorities are wrong and that they’ll never get anywhere because they were only hired for their looks. Rose says that’s funny because it’s obvious Tamina and Natalya are only still in WWE because of their surnames. Nattie invites them into the ring and all four women brawl before being separated by officials.
Drew McIntyre is interviewed backstage and asked about facing AJ Styles a week before a Hell In A Cell match. Drew says he wouldn’t have it any other way. Lashley meanwhile is upstairs sinking bottles of champagne. McIntyre regales us with another tale of Scottish history, this time about William Wallace and how he’s inspired by his strategies.
