The Deadman returned again to help Roman Reigns protect the yard. Plus Seth Rollins and Becky Lynch stood united. Get your full RAW results here.
Last night the WWE put on a surprisingly well booked and logical PPV, Stomping Grounds. Can they keep the momentum going tonight on RAW?
We’re starting things off hot as the WWE Universal Champion Seth Rollins makes his way out. Seth soaks in the “Burn It Down” chants. He speaks on his victory last night, and then Becky Lynch’s music hits and she joins her boyfriend in the ring. Seth hypes up how Becky had his back last night. She speaks on Lacey Evans attempts to steal the title. Baron Corbin’s music hits and Lacey blindsides Becky. Corbin joins the fight, but Becky and Seth clear the ring. They challenge the duo to a mixed tag match at Extreme Rules with a winner take all stipulation. However, if Corbin and Lacey lose, they don’t get anymore title shots. They all accept the terms.

After the break, Braun Strowman and Bobby Lashley come out for a special tug-of-war matchup. The usual shenanigans with this kind of segment, with Bobby Lashley attacking Braun when he’s about to lose.
Backstage AJ Styles hypes up his match with Ricochet later tonight. He gets distracted No Way Jose’s music and finds Gallows and Anderson dancing. He berates them for not being serious enough. He wants the old Gallows and Anderson back.
Gallows & Anderson vs The Viking Raiders
Result: The Vikings get the easy win, we see a disappointed AJ Styles looking on.
Backstage, Nikki Cross and Alexa Bliss are talking about what happened at Stomping Grounds. Nikki apologizes for losing control. Alexa blames Bayley for manipulating Nikki, and sends her off to think of a new plan. Natalya and Naomi offer Nikki some advice against Alexa. Bliss catches them and is furious. Naomi steps up and challenges her to a match.
We get a match between Heath Slate and Mojo Rawley, but it never happens as the 24/7 champion R-Truth runs in. Heath catches him by surprise and wins the belt. Truth wins it back. Then Cedric Alexander hits him with the Lumber Check to win the belt. EC3 appears from nowhere and pins Cedric to win the belt. Carmella takes the belt from EC3 for the distraction. Truth pins him to become a 9x champ. Shoowee. Silliness galore there.
After the break, the WWE Champion Kofi Kingston comes out for an interview. Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn come out with their own questions. It’s an impromptu Kevin and Sami show and it leads to a match…well two actually.
