It’s Monday night, and you know what that means! WWE RAW will go down tonight, and Ringside News has got you covered with live play-by-play results coverage.

WWE RAW will start this week at 8:00 PM EST, as always. Match-by-match highlights and results from the show will take place on this very page. Feel free to leave any reactions in the comment section below.

The “RAW after WrestleMania” is always a special one and tonight’s show will most certainly be no different from that. This week’s episode of the red brand will also create history as the first RAW to take place under a new leadership. For those who may have missed, WWE and UFC’s parent company Endeavor entered into an agreement couple of hours ago to acquire the sports and entertainment juggernaut for $9.3 billion.

So, there are a lot of reasons to be excited about the upcoming episode of WWE RAW. As far as matches and segments for tonight’s show are concerned, WWE hasn’t advertised the card on their website and social media. Having said that, spoilers for the show are pointing towards huge return sometime during the show.

Chants of “Triple H” take over the arena. The Game grabs the mic. He says what a weekend in the arena, says a 161,000 fans jam packed the SoFi Stadium. He says WWE and its fans have come a long way from “one man’s vision to create WrestleMania to four decades later.” Triple H says the reason he’s come here is to thank the WWE superstars and the crew that “makes night like tonight possible.” Triple H puts over cameraman “Stu.” Fans chant “Stu.” Triple H asks him to say hi.

Triple H says the giant stage of WrestleMania 39 took his breath away when he first saw it. He says last but not the least, he’d like to thank the WWE Universe.

Cody says he knew what he had said earlier and looks at the crowd. Fans chant “rematch.” Cody says “rematch.” Heyman asks him when he would like to have this hypothetical rematch. Cody says tonight.” Heyman and Roman look at each other.

The Wise Man says no rematch. Not tonight. Not in Puerto Rico, not at SummerSlam, not in Madison Square Garden.The crowd chants “bull sh*t.” Cody tells HeyMan he isn’t in the mood for his games. He tells Roman he knows how tough he is. Cody says he was essentially up against Roman and Siko last night so why don’t they go for a tag team match instead.
