7/8 WWE Raw Results: Powell’s review Roman Reigns and a partner of Shane McMahon’s choosing vs. Drew McIntyre and Shane McMahon, Rey Mysterio’s return, Becky Lynch and Seth Rollins vs. Zelina Vega and Andrade, final hype for Extreme Rules

By Jason Powell, ProWrestling.net Editor (@prowrestlingnet)

WWE Raw on the USA Network
Aired live on July 8, 2019 from Newark, New Jersey at Prudential Center

[Hour One] Michael Cole welcomed viewers to the show and plugged Extreme Rules for Sunday. Cole was joined on commentary by Corey Graves and Renee Young, and Mike Rome was the ring announcer… Ring entrances for the mixed tag match took place and the broadcast team hyped previously announced segments and added Ricochet vs. Luke Gallows…

1. Becky Lynch and Seth Rollins vs. Zelina Vega and Andrade in a mixed tag elimination match. Lynch and Vega started the match. Lynch dominated the offense until Vega caught her with a kick through the ropes and DDT’d her. Lynch came back, but Vega tagged out to bring the men into the match briefly.

The women ended up back in the ring and Lynch forced Vega to submit to the Disarmer. Lacey Evans popped up on the other side of the barrier and taunted Lynch, who went after her. Lynch threw punches at Evans and was pulled off by Rollins going into the break. [C]

The match was restarted coming out of the break and Andrade hit Rollins from behind. Lynch remained on the apron and Vega stood at ringside. Andrade caught Rollins in a tree of woe and performed a double stomp onto him that led to a two count. Andrade went for the Three Amigos, but Rollins stuffed the third and performed a falcon arrow for a two count.

Rollins went up top and Andrade shoved him to the floor. Vega performed a huracanrana on Rollins. Lynch attacked Vega. Andrade charged Rollins from behind, but Lynch moved Rollins out of the way and was barreled over by Andrade. Graves said it obviously wasn’t the intent of Andrade. In the ring, Andrade performed his running knee in the corner for a near fall.

Zelina went for another huracanrana on Rollins, but he caught her and held her while Lynch kicked her. Back in the ring, Rollins performed the Stomp on Andrade and pinned him clean to win the match.

Seth Rollins and Becky Lynch defeated Andrade and Zelina Vega in 14:10.

After the match, Baron Corbin ran out and hit Rollins from behind on the stage. Lynch went after Corbin, but Evans took out Lynch with a Woman’s Right punch. After Corbin and Evans walked backstage, Paul Heyman walked out minus entrance music and looked at Rollins and Lynch while heading toward the ring. One of the broadcast team members wondered if Brock Lesnar was in the building… [C]

Powell’s POV: Vince McMahon’s no wrestling during commercial breaks continues to create bad restarts and other stupidity. It was clunky that this match was an elimination match because the rules typically call for men to face men and women to face women, yet Lynch remained on the apron even after she’d eliminated Vega. How many more weeks of this nonsense will we have to endure until he admits it was a mistake or finds a better way to implement this approach?

An ad for Wednesday’s NXT’s TV show hyped The Street Profits vs. Danny Burch and Oney Lorcan for the NXT Tag Titles (join John Moore for his weekly live review)… The broadcast team recapped the post match attack…

Backstage, Corbin told Evans that it was easy. He said love does make you blind. They both wondered what would happen when they both cost one another their titles. Corbin said they are the new power couple because their relationship is strictly professional…

Paul Heyman was introduced and received some cheers. Heyman delivered his usual “advocate for Brock Lesnar” self introduction. Heyman mentioned Extreme Rules and said he knows something about extreme. He said the show is in Philadelphia and he knows a lot about extreme in Philadelphia. Heyman said Brock Lesnar will cash in his Money in the Bank contract on Sunday against either Rollins or Kofi Kingston. “That’s not a prediction, that’s a spoiler,” Heyman said.

Heyman said he hasn’t violated a spoiler since before WrestleMania 30. He said that if he ever wanted to put out misinformation, he built up his credibility enough that this would be the time for him to lie, so he’s either tipping off viewers to a historic moment or he’s screwing with Rollins and Kingston. Heyman said only he and Lesnar know which is the case. Heyman dropped the mic and left the ring…

The broadcast team spoke behind their desk. Cole said Braun Strowman and Bobby Lashley will be at Extreme Rules He set up a recap of “one the most startling, shocking, horrific incidents we’ve ever witnessed on Monday Night Raw.” A video package recapped last week’s Strowman and Lashley stunt…

Cole announced Braun Strowman vs. Bobby Lashley in a Last Man Standing match for Extreme Rules…

The Miz made his entrance. Cole hyped Miz and The Usos vs. Elias The Revival and Elias in a best of three falls match for after the break… [C]

Powell’s POV: Strowman’s spleen has miraculously healed! In fairness, they did claim last week that there were rumors that he’d suffered a spleen injury. Meanwhile, another best of three falls match? Please stop this insanity.

2. The Miz, Jimmy Uso, and Jey Uso vs. Elias, Scott Dawson, and Dash Wilder in a best of three falls match. The heel entrances were not televised. Miz chased Elias out of the ring. In the ring, the Revival hit the Shatter Machine on one of the Usos and won the first fall in 3:00. [C]

The second fall started after the break and one of the Usos was down and selling for some reason. Jey was isolated until he eventually made a tag to Miz, who performed a Skull Crushing Finale on Dawson and pinned him in 4:20.

The third fall consisted of the Usos having a super kick party. Jimmy dove onto Wilder at ringside, then Jey performed a top rope splash onto Dawson and pinned him in 0:20.

The Miz, Jimmy Uso, and Jey Uso beat Elias, Scott Dawson, and Dash Wilder in a best of three falls match.

Powell’s POV: So many falls, so little time.

Cole announced that Alexa Bliss was not at Raw, so Bayley and Nikki Cross would compete in a beat the clock challenge. The winner would be able to choose the stipulation for the Bayley vs. Bliss match at Extreme Rules…

A recap aired of the recent WWE 24/7 Title developments including Drake Maverick beating R-Truth last week, and then footage of Maverick and his wife on their honeymoon at Universal Studios in Orlando. Maverick informed his wife that their honeymoon would continue in Newark, New Jersey.

At Raw, Maverick climbed out of a crate while his wife sat on another. She wasn’t pleased. He encouraged her to join him in the crate to “get it on.” Maverick said he would show the world what a great champion hie is and then show her what a great husband he is by taking her on the honeymoon she deserves. She told him that then and only then would they consummate the marriage. Maverick was giddy. The usual suspects ran into the picture and chased Maverick away…

Rey Mysterio was shown walking backstage. Cole said Mysterio would issue an open challenge after the break… [C]

Powell’s POV: Maybe I missed something, but why would Maverick want to appear at Raw if he wants to remain 24/7 Champion?

Cole noted that Triple H sent a title belt to the World Cup winning U.S. Women’s Soccer team…

Backstage, Shane and McIntyre spoke with an appreciative beer vendor about teaming with Reigns…

Powell’s POV: It was a legendary run for Tony the Trash Man.

[Hour Two] Rey Mysterio made his entrance. Mysterio took the mic and said he’d keep it short and simple. He said surrendering the U.S. Championship was one of the hardest things he’d ever done. Mysterio said the doctors told him it would be a very long time before he’d return, but he rehabbed hard and beat their predictions. Mysterio said he’s back and ready to compete. Mysterio issued an open challenge. Bobby Lashley answered the challenge…

3. Rey Mysterio vs. Bobby Lashley. Mysterio went at Lashley as he tried to enter the ring. The ref started the match moments later. The broadcast team played up the idea that Lahsley couldn’t be 100 percent after last week’s angle with Strowman. Mysterio performed an early 619, but Lashley came back and speared and pinned Mysterio.

Bobby Lashley pinned Rey Mysterio in 0:55.

After the match, Lashley dragged Mysterio up to the stage, then pressed him over his head and wanted to toss him into the screen, but a referee blocked his path. Lashley scared off multiple officials and picked up Mysterio. The three officials returned. Lashley threw Mysterio onto the referees.

Lashley took a mic from the broadcast team’s table and said he was the only man standing last week. He said he will be the last man standing on Sunday at Extreme Rules…

The broadcast team hyped the Reigns and partner vs. Shane and McIntyre match and noted that Undertaker would be out of Extreme Rules if he interfered in the match. They also hyped Bayley vs. Cross, and Ricochet vs. Gallows…

A group of trainers and refs were checking on Mysterio and the referees who were still lying on the stage… [C]

Powell’s POV: Hey, even single falls matches end quickly. I get the idea of building up Lashley in a big way, but Mysterio’s latest return from injury had to be his worst. Mysterio selling his injuries afterward was logical, but how would three referees be hurt from catching Mysterio?

AJ Styles, Luke Gallows, and Karl Anderson were shown walking backstage. Charly Caruso showed up and said Styles was the catalyst for getting the band back together, then asked why he attacked Ricochet after the match last week. Styles said he didn’t owe her or anyone else an explanation…

4. Cesaro vs. No Way Jose (w/Rosebud Rejects). Cesaro’s entrance was televised. Cesaro harassed the conga dancers before the match. Jose went after Cesaro and roughed him up at ringside. Once they were in the ring, the referee started the match. Cesaro dominated and won via submission with a Sharpshooter…

Cesaro defeated No Way Jose in 1:10.

The Street Profits were sitting backstage. They jumped up when they noticed the camera. Montez Ford and Angelo Dawkins delivered over the top hype for the Undertaker and Reigns vs. Shane and McIntyre match. They also played up the idea that Reigns has to make it through Raw to get to Sunday…

Bayley and Cross were shown on a split screen. Cole said they would be talking about the beat the clock challenge… [C]

Powell’s POV: Here’s hoping they have a legit plan and push in mind for Cesaro. Meanwhile, I like the Street Profits and all, but I don’t really get this promo only introduction approach they are getting on the main roster. And I’m not alone in that if the live crowd’s silence following this promo was any indication.

The broadcast team set up a recap of the Mike Kanellis and Maria Kanellis drama from last week…

Maria was seated on a couch and texting backstage when Mike showed up with flowers and apologized for what happened last week. Mike said he was so excited she’s having their second child. She accepted and they went back and forth about who loves each other more. She said the thing she loves more is ice cream and pickles. He offered to get her non-fat ice cream. She took offense. Mike backed down and headed out to get her ice cream and pickles. “What kind of man taps out to a woman?” Maria asked after he was out of the picture…

Cole interviewed Bayley and Cross were were backstage. Cross said she doesn’t now what she’d do without Bliss. Bayley said Bliss used Cross to get the title shot and is now using her to beat the clock. Cross got upset and defended Bliss.

Cole explained the rules of the beat the clock challenge and informed them that Bayley will face Sarah Logan, and Cross will face Dana Brooke. Bayley said she’s not afraid of chaos and hopes that Logan will bring everything she has. Bayley said she would beat the clock and make the stipulation at Extreme Rules. Cross said Brooke is stronger, bigger, and tougher than she is. Cross said she had to win because she’d do anything for Bliss. “So Bayley, let’s play,” Cross concluded…

The Viking Raiders were shown standing in front of a red light backstage… [C]

R-Truth and Carmella were shown backstage searching for Drake Maverick. Truth said his “baby” had nightmare problems and needs him. He recited some of the lyrics to “With My Baby Tonight.” Maverick ran past them and some of the usual suspects followed. Truth put Carmella on his back and headed off in the wrong direction…

5. “The Viking Raiders” Erik and Ivar vs. Colin Justin and Devin Justin. In a shocking development, the Justins’ entrance was not televised. Ivar performed a top rope splash and had the pin, but he picked up his opponent instead to dish out more punishment. Erik picked up one opponent, then Ivar put the other on top of the first opponent, and Erik slammed them down. The Viking Raiders hit the Viking Experience and scored the pin.

The Viking Raiders beat Colin Justin and Devin Justin in 1:25.

After the match, the 24/7 crew rushed through the crowd to ringside. Maverick crawled through the ring and some of the other wrestlers tried to follow. Curt Hawkins was beaten up by the Viking Raiders. Truth entered the ring and looked at the Raiders, then left the ring and hopped the barricade with Carmella and ran away…

Ricochet was shown walking backstage while Cole hyped his match against Gallows for after the break… [C]

Powell’s POV: The live crowds continue to sit in silence during the Viking Raiders’ entrance. They react a bit to their power moves, but this gimmick isn’t doing the duo any favors. This has been a lousy show so far. The 24/7 comedy isn’t clicking with me, the commercial break edict nonsense is ruining some of the matches, and they have done nothing to excite me excited about Extreme Rules. And we’re just over halfway through the show? Time doesn’t fly when you’re not having fun.

Roman Reigns was interviewed by Charly Caruso in his locker room. She asked him who Shane might choose to be his partner. Reigns said he didn’t have anything for her. He asked if she knew who his partner was (on Sunday) and said the only people playing mind games is his team…

Ricochet made his entrance and delivered a promo in the ring. Ricochet said everyone knew Gallows would be accompanied by Anderson, and Styles would be right behind them. Ricochet said he’d just have to fight all three men. AJ Styles’ entrance music played and he came out with Gallows and Anderson. Graves said The Club made John Cena’s life a living hell in WWE. Styles stood at ringside and said things move quickly in WWE, so Ricochet should slow down and appreciate the moment. Styles said he might as well because Gallows would stomp a mud hole in him. Styles set up a video package that recapped last week’s Club reunion…

6. U.S. Champion Ricochet vs. Luke Gallows (w/AJ Styles, Karl Anderson) in a non-title match. Gallows performed an early chokeslam and was cheered loudly by Styles. Gallows played into the applause and hesitated before covering Ricochet for a two count. Gallows turned Ricochet inside out with a clothesline. Gallows picked up Ricochet, who ended up rolling him up and pinning him.

Ricochet pinned Luke Gallows in 3:00 in a non-title match.

After the match, Styles took the mic and said they could leave it right there or they could do what Ricochet said he would do by going through all three members. Styles invited Ricochet to face Anderson. Cole questioned if Ricochet would accept the challenge (as Ricochet was accepting the challenge)…

Powell’s POV: The Styles character is being a dick to Ricochet and all, but it wouldn’t hurt to have him tear into the fans to complete his heel turn.

7. U.S. Champion Ricochet vs. Karl Anderson (w/AJ Styles, Luke Gallows) in a non-title match. Cole said the match was made official during the break. Anderson performed a spinebuster for a two count at 2:40. Ricochet came back. Styles grabbed his leg while the referee was turned away. Ricochet performed a dive and took out Gallows, then performed a moonsault onto Styles. In the ring, Ricochet ended up hitting his 630 splash on Anderson for the win.

Ricochet defeated Karl Anderson in 4:30 in a non-title match.

[Hour Three] Styles attacked after the match. Styles performed a brainbuster on Ricochet. Styles called for a Magic Killer from Anderson and Gallows, who obliged. Styles went to the middle rope. Anderson and Gallows handed Ricochet to Styles, who teased a Styles Clash and instead shoved Ricochet to the mat.

Styles got some boos and took the mic. “Hey, I’m a good guy,” Styles said. He told Ricochet to stay down and added that he wanted him to save a little for Sunday when he beats him. THe Club left the ring, then noticed that Ricochet was back on his feet. Gallows and Anderson returned to the ring and held Ricochet in place, then Styles hit him with a Phenomenal Forearm. The Club struck the “too sweet” pose together…

Powell’s POV: This turned out to be a good beatdown angle that generated some heat for The Club and made Ricochet look sympathetic. I realize that Gallows and Anderson are essentially the fall guys for Styles, but creative needs to make them feel like a threat by having them rack up some wins.

Cole set up a video for Evolve’s 10th Anniversary event that will air Saturday on WWE Network. The video showed a number of WWE and NXT wrestlers with Evolve ties… The broadcast team ran through the Extreme Rules lineup…

Powell’s POV: Join John Moore for his live review of the Evolve 10th Anniversary show on Saturday night. I’ll be covering the AEW Fight For The Fallen event and watching Evolve later in the night. You can join me for live coverage of Extreme Rules on Sunday. We will have same night audio reviews of all three shows available.

Backstage, an excited Drake Maverick told his frustrated bride that he survived the night as 24/7 Champion. R-Truth emerged from a crate and told “Hornswoggle” that the title is his baby. Truth chased after Maverick and they walked by Bayley, whose BTC Challenge match was coming up…

A janitor was shown walking backstage. Shane and McIntyre called out to the man and said they wanted to talk to him… [C]

Cole hyped the Best WWE Moment voting for Wednesday’s ESPY Awards…

Backstage, Shane asked the janitor how he would like to make $5,000. Gary the janitor said he’d do anything for five grand, but he was hesitant about wrestling. Shane sad he just needed him to stand there. Gary agreed. Shane told Gary that because they are recognized all over the world they would get him a mask since they didn’t want it to be a burden for him…

Powell’s POV: I assume this means someone other than Gary will be under the mask, but does this also mean that the Shane and McIntyre characters don’t know the cameras are right in front of them showing Gary’s mug on television? It’s hard to tell whether they are just being heels or if this is one of those strange WWE quirks where the wrestlers have to act like they don’t know the cameras are present.

8. Bayley vs. Sarah Logan in a Beat The Clock Challenge. Logan got a good amount of offense in, but Bayley came back with a sunset bomb into the corner and pinned her…

Bayley beat Sarah Logan in 4:32.

Nikki Cross made her entrance for her BTC match… [C]

Powell’s POV: Logan got way more offense than anyone would have anticipated. I’d still like to see WWE do more with her on the main roster.

9. Nikki Cross vs. Dana Brooke in a Beat The Clock Challenge. Bayley watched while seated on a chair on the floor. Brooke went to ringside to run time down and Bayley smiled. Brooke had Cross down and went for a moonsault, but Cross moved. Brooke still rolled her up for a near fall. Cross came back and performed a neckbreaker for the pin and beat Bayley’s time by 1:50.

Nikki Cross defeated Dana Brooke in 2:42 to win the Beat The Clock Challenge.

After the match, Cross called Bayley to join her in the ring so she could tell her something to her face. Cross said Bayley doesn’t understand what a real friendship means. Cross said it’s okay because she’d show her at Extreme Rules when Bliss lets her make the Smackdown Title match a two-on-one handicap match. Cross said she would help Bliss win the Smackdown Women’s Championship. Cross told Bayley to go find a friend of her own. She said Bayley needs someone as loyal and honest as Bliss, someone to slap some sense into her. Bayley slapped Cross. When Cross stood up, Bayley performed her Bayley to Belly finisher on her. Bayley went up top and performed an elbow drop…

Powell’s POV: Cross was given too much material and the crowd responded with What? chants. I suspect this same angle would have resulted in Bayley being booed loudly in some cities. Her attack on Cross felt like it was a bit much given that Cross comes off as more gullible and naive than heelish.

Mike Kanellis returned with ice cream and pickles. Maria yelled that she couldn’t eat it because she’d get fat. She asked if he would want to impregnate her if she wasn’t already pregnant. He said of course he would. She told him that he would never impregnate her. “In fact, I’m not so sure you’re the one who impregnated me this time,” she said. Mike asked what they were doing. “Look what you’ve done to me,” Maria yelled…

Powell’s POV: It’s the same bit as last week only backstage with ice cream and pickles. Maria is really over the top and none of this has clicked tonight. Are they trying to say Mike is a sympathetic figure because pregnant women are crazy?

Cole and Young recapped Corbin and Evans attacking Rollins and Lynch earlier in the show…

Backstage, Corey Graves interviewed Rollins and Lynch and played up the possibility of how they could lose the titles and how damaging it would be to their relationship. Lynch said she saw what he was doing. She said they’ve both backed up everything they’ve said. She said once they win then Corbin and Evans are finished and won’t get more chances. Lynch walked away. Graves held the mic up for Rollins, who said, “Oh, uh, yeah, what she said.” After Rollins walked away, Graves said it will be an implosion…

Cole ran through some of the pay-per-view matches and set up footage from Smackdown of Kofi Kingston flipping off Samoa Joe and dropping him with a Trouble in Paradise kick…

The Street Profits were shown watching the footage on a monitor. Ford did a brief “if you smell” and was scolded by Dawkins for impersonating The Rock. Dawkins picked Samoa Joe to beat Kingston. Ford asked him about the mixed tag match. Dawkins said that was easy and went with Baron Corbin. They were silent and the crowd booed. “Got him,” Dawkins said. Dawkins picked Becky Lynch…

Shane McMahon and Drew McIntyre were shown walking backstage… [C]

Ring entrances for the main event took place. Roman Reigns was out first to a flat reaction. Shane came out followed by McIntyre. Shane had Mike Rome deliver his “best in the world” introduction. Shane and McIntyre delivered brief promos. McIntyre promised that he would beat respect into Reigns in this match and at Extreme Rules. Shane introduced Gary “The Goat” Garbutt. A masked man in a janitor outfit came out limped toward the ring… [C]

Powell’s POV: Let me guess, Vince thinks it’s hilarious because Gary’s last name has “butt” in it? On the bright side, at least there won’t be any clunky restart since the match will start after the final commercial break.

10. Shane McMahon and Drew McIntyre vs. Roman Reigns and Gary Garbutt. Reigns started the match and ended up being shoved into his corner where his back made contact with Garbutt. McIntyre cleared Reigns from the ring and then hurled Garbutt over the top rope and into the ring. Garbutt worked over Shane and performed a flip dive onto McIntyre at ringside. Garbutt went after Shane in the ring, but McIntyre cut him off with a Claymore Kick, which led to the pin.

Shane McMahon and Drew McIntyre beat Roman Reigns and Gary Garbutt in 2:10.

After the match, the heels hurried up the stage. Shane had Rome announce them as the winners. Garbutt unmasked and revealed himself to be Cedric Alexander. He had some blood on his tongue, then wiped it onto his finger and showed it off. Reigns stood next to Alexander and jawed at Shane and McIntyre while Cole hyped the pay-per-view to close the show…

Powell’s POV: It’s nice to see Cedric get some air time, but the key is how they follow up with him. It would be nice to see Shane used to actually elevate someone. Overall, this was a big step back from last week and did nothing to sell me on Extreme Rules more than I was going into the show. And before anyone tries to write this off as WWE holding back because the MLB Home Run Derby aired against Raw tonight, please remember that this was a go-home show and WWE’s ratings are such that they are in no position to phone in anything. I will have more to say about this episode in my weekly members’ exclusive audio review coming up later tonight.

    So, wait, if Andrade pinned Rollins would Andrade’s team have won the match?

  2. If Drake’s wife is having sex with Drake cowgirl style and gets the pinfall, does Renee become 24/7 champion?

  3. Write This Way July 8, 2019 @ 8:57 pm

    “Maria was seated on a coach”

    I’m sure she was.

  4. It’s a sad dark day for WWE when I find Impact presenting more compelling tv than this mess.

  5. Patrick Peralta July 8, 2019 @ 9:42 pm

    The 24/7 comedy has been grerat…I’ve enjoyed it best thing on WWE today. Bothe R-truth and Maverick have done a great job with the 24/7 Title.

  6. Patrick Peralta July 8, 2019 @ 9:51 pm

    ” but does this also mean that the Shane and McIntyre characters don’t know the cameras are right in front of them showing Gary’s mug on television?’

    what is this deal you have Jason with Wrestlers and not knowing the camera is there while they make plans and pretending to ignore it.

    that’s been done for years why does it bother you…how else are fans supposed to know how the storyline continues with out seeing what goes on backstage and seeing heels make plans to screw the Face wrestlers..

    relax and enjoy the show.

    • Because it’s ridiculous and lazy. Relax and enjoy the show? Have you seen the ratings lately? Just because you are enjoying this nonsense doesn’t mean it’s working. Should I take your approach and just have every POV read “I’m relaxing and enjoying the show.” What wonderful read! I think I’ll stick to giving my honest opinion.

  7. Wait as usual for all the `hits` in the Hits and Misses column…

  8. I’m not a fan of the Wwes style of backstage segments. Wcw would elude to a problem in the back and send cameras back. It’s believability and comes off more organic instead of two guys who appear to be complete idiots scheming in front of an national audience

    • Or do the old Jay Leno gag where he says for legal purposes he’s always being filmed 24/7. Just say as long as Raw is on the air everyone is subject to being video taped. Stupid but at least it would be an explanation.

  9. What was the point of having Cedric Alexander be under the mask if his team lost in quick, squash like fashion? This shit with people jobbing to Shane McMahon over and over again has grown tiresome imagine Bobby Heenan or Jimmy Hart getting pin fall or submission victories back in the day over the likes of Jimmy Snuka, Ultimate Warrior, Randy Savage, Jake “The Snake” Roberts, Hillbilly Jim and others. Basically Shane is a glorified modern day manager and he’s got active wrestlers jobbing to him on a constant basis.
