Welcome to Fightful's live coverage of the June 24 WWE Raw. We'll have full, ongoing results from the show, in addition to a post-show podcast, which you can see below.
- We begin this week's show with Seth Rollins, taking a microphone in center ring but being swiftly interrupted by Becky Lynch. First though, Seth gave Corbin some credit for his smart approach. However, Baron wasn't smart enough to realize that Rollins has the best back-up on the planet. Lynch says that last night, they proved why they are the champions of their divisions. Becky says that she wouldn't sit back and watch Baron steal the title but was interrupted herself, with Corbin's music hitting. Evans arrived instead though, jumping Lynch from behind until the champion turned the tide. Corbin then arrived but ate slingblade for his troubles while in the meantime, Lynch dispatched Lacey with a Bexploder.
Corbin mocked the whole thing, claiming that Lynch was handling all of Rollins business, blaming Becky for his failure to win the Universal Title. However, Corbin chose Evans for a reason, as she's the only real woman on the roster. In fact, he'd even take Lacey as a partner in a mixed tag against Seth and Becky, with Evans suggesting Extreme Rules. Lynch agreed but only under one condition: if they win, Lacey and Baron get no more chances to face them. Their foes have a suggestion of their own though, asking Rollins and Lynch to put their titles on the line. The champions agreed.
Daniel Bryan & Rowan and The Revival vs. The Usos and New Day
Pre-match, The Usos got the fans fired up, welcoming their foes to the Uso Penetentiary! Once the bell rung though, Dawson tagged himself in, starting things opposite Woods until E entered for some tandem offense. Rowan was soon in too though, wiping out all involved until E evaded his splash. Bryan and Woods were in next, going back and forth before a clothesline put Bryan in control. His trademark dive followed but Woods moved, sending Bryan into Dawson but eating a dropkick off the top regardless.
Wilder then made Bryan pay for his error though, landing a European Uppercut and allowing Woods to eliminate their own partner. The Revival swiftly dispatched Woods nonetheless, catching him for Shatter Machine in mid-air and leveling things up. Back from the break though and The Usos are running wild, hitting a big dive over the top and isolating Wilder too. Tandem offense followed but Dash soon fired fired back, catching Jimmy for a sudden powerslam near-fall. Things then spilled to the apron, with Jimmy coming out on top only for Dawson to re-enter and score a bulldog off Wilder's shoulders.
Dawson was swiftly floored himself but fought upright, superplexing Jey while in the meantime, Jimmy tagged himself in. As Dawson landed, he then seized, hitting his splash off of Wilder's back and closing the show!

- That was followed by a recap of Roman Reigns' victory over Drew McIntyre. After that, The Miz was headed to the ring while in the background, Abby The Witch briefly appeared. Elsewhere, Braun Strowman was practicing for tonight's tug of war contest against Bobby Lashley. His chosen method? Dragging a trailer tractor through the car park.
- Off to MizTV next, with Miz introducing tonight's guests: R-Truth and Carmella. Miz calms both down, announcing that the 24/7 rules are suspended during this interview. He then recapped the belt's chaotic history, showing the video of R-Truth's latest title win. The champion defended his actions, calling the title no joke and claiming that the belt has overtaken his whole life, constantly looking over his shoulder at all times. Carmella explained further but Maverick soon arrived, claiming that Truth had already ruined his marriage and asking for a rematch. Miz then announced that he'd received word that if Truth accepts Drake's challenge, no one is allowed to interfere in their match.
WWE 24/7 Title
R-Truth vs. Drake Maverick
After unleashing some knees early, Maverick then run into a Flatliner and this one was over before it could even truly begin.
Winner and STILL Champion: R-Truth
Post-match, the chasing pack arrived, hunting Truth down as he looked to evade. He ate a Neutalizer for his troubles though, with only No Way Jose stopping Cedric Alexander from scoring the pin. That allowed the champion and Carmella to escape through the crowd while in-ring, Drake Maverick couldn't even answer Charly Caruso's question, walking out dejected after failing to regain the title.
- A recap of tonight's opening segment followed, with Evans and Corbin discussing their plan as Baron even suggested that they could be the next power couple after Extreme Rules.
Shane McMahon and Drew McIntyre vs. Roman Reigns
Pre-match, Shane told Mike Rome of a rule change, forcing him to announce that tags would no longer be required in tonight's match. Once the bell rung though, Reigns swiftly removed McMahon with an uppercut but was jumped for his troubles, swiftly removing Drew nonetheless. He then flurried on Shane too but McIntyre cut him off moments later, launching his foe around ringside and into the steel steps as well. They then took the steps to Reigns' head, flooring him on the floor before returning him to center ring too.
From there, they simply added insult to injury, landing The Spear and Claymore twice also. As Shane headed up for Coast to Coast though, the lights turned off, with The Undertaker suddenly appearing and catching McMahon for a chokeslam. He then cleared the ring, standing tall and staring McIntyre and McMahon down as Reigns watched on!
