Keep Refreshing For The Latest WWE Raw Results

Michael Ornelas is more excited about Costco than a mildly successful middle income white family of five!

It is The Judgment Day ERA!

After some intro stuff, we go live to Rhea Ripley coming out in a sling and a bit of a sad face.

She says it’s obvious we know what’s going on. After the attack from last week, she is being told that she is stuck on the bench for a few months. She’s also been told. No, she is angry right now, pissed. She has been told she needs to vacate the one thing that means the most to her.

A BULLSHIT chant starts.

She agrees. She says this champion means the most to her in her entire life, and that’s why this is so painful.

She lays the title down on the mat.

This is all because of Liv’s stupid revenge tour. Rhea could have actually had some respect for her, but she blindsided Rhea like the coward that she is. She knows why, too. She would have dropped Liv where she stood. So this is a warning to whoever wins her title, she will drop them.

She then tells Liv that she’s going to destroy her.

Liv Morgan’s music hits and that little spitfire is NOT scared. She comes out, but security is nearby to stop any action. They hold Liv back and she smiles, shedding fake tears for Rhea. Rhea allows herself to be held back as well as Liv is ushered to the back.

Rhea headbutts a security guard.

Sheamus is here! He’ll be in action tonight!

We come back to Rhea Ripley walking up to The Judgment Day. They all hug. Damien Priest tells her they know when she comes back, she’ll be more bad ass than she is right now, because she is Rhea Bloody Ripley. Rhea tells her to keep JD on top, and to look after Dom. Rhea walks away.


His last match was August of 2023, and he gets a hell of a reaction. He’s in action against…

Sheamus vs Ivar

The bell rings and Ivar gives a bit of a pause to let the crowd soak it all in. LOCKUP! Stalemate. Another and Sheamus gets a side headlock, to the rope, tackle sends Ivar to the ropes, he hits his own, Sheamus backs into the ropes. Neither man down. Sheamus wants a fight. He hits a hard right, ICar next, they go back and forth. To the ropes. Shoulder tackle sends Ivar down! Sheamus tries to beat down on the chest against the ropes but Ivar hangs him up! Ivar in and he corners Sheamus, but Sheamus reverses, climbs the top rope with Ivar. WHITE NOISE OFF THE 2nd BUCKLE!!

We come back to Sheamus hitting a powerslam. He gets Ivar to the apron, and here we go! Ten Beats! He tries to lift Ivar, but Ivar steps down, hits a big boot, spinning kick to Sheamus. Ivar to the top rope! Big splash! Cover! 1…2..NO!!! Ivar with the right hands, Sheamus begs for more, Ivar cartwheels, hits a running knee, springoards, but Sheamus hits his own knee!!! Sheamus drops the knee pad.

Triple H is here as a welcomed surprise!

We see some covered up belts (I presume) in the ring, alongside Adam Pearce.

Triple H says Mania started a new era, and that new era altered the tag team division. Pearce says Raw and SD deserve titles they can be proud of. So let’s bring out the champs.

Here come Awesome Truth.

YOU DESERVE IT chant. Truth and Miz hold the old RAW titles.

The chants gets Truth to do a jumping splits.

Triple H would like to be the first to say, “Whats up” and shake their hands. Lol.

Triple H says, personally, seeing Truth have that mania moment was awesome.

Going forward, they wil be known as the World Tag Team Champions, and thy will be wearing the new titles.

Truth goes buckwild, saying he’s seen a rabbit come out a hat, seen a lady cut in half, but he has never seen a trick like that. He knows a good magician when he sees one. He just made titles appear out of thin oxygen! That boy good!


The Miz explains that HHH is not a magician, and Truth says that’s exactly what a magician would say. Everybody used to be able to see Lil Jimmy, so what else is HHH hiding?

Miz tells Truth this is what they wanted, this is their chance to elevate the tag team division. Their chance to take titles to new heights. Which is why HHH…

Truth says, where is HHH! He sees right through Tommaso Ciampa!

Miz stops Truth, says they wil try one more thing. Miz tells Truth, in French, that these are the new titles, and they belong to them.

Truth says yes, but in French, and that starts a chant.

Truth asks if he can take them now?

Triple H just wants to go. Can he just go? Lol.

He takes the red titles and hands the champs their new titles, then shakes their hands and wishes Pearce good luck.

He says the most important, this is all that matters. He is excited.

Match Time: 2:14

Cody Rhodes is backstage walking wit a smile and his new belt.

Cathy is backstage with Liv Morgan and she asks if this is the end of the revenge tour.

Liv is not the bad guy here, Rhea literally tore her shoulder out her socket. There wasn’t any love, right? Eye for an eye, tooth for a tooth, shoulder for a shoulder. Rhea got what she deserved. The best part? This is not the end of the revenge tour, it’s just the beginning.

YOUR WWE Champion is here.

The crowd shows hella love, with Cody asking them what they wanna talk about in French. He wants to thank Pearce for allowing him here on RAW even though he’s a Friday Night superstar.

We can’t reflect on Mania forever, especially with a pending challenge. He will face either AJ Styles or LA Knight come Backlash.

We can reflect a little bit, though. This man said he’d be his shield.

The crowd tries to sing for Seth, but they don’t get a good start.

Cody wants to thank Seth Rollins, and does so.

He then talks about The Rock and all the conditioning he did for the match. He thinks The Rock has more than one match left in him. In typical faction, The Rock told Cody he’d make him bleed again. The Rock is probably right, but n amount of training and preparation can stop the fact that if Cody is going to bleed, The Rock will bleed with him.

As for The Bloodline. Well, he’s a bit confused. The introduction of Tonga, by order of The Tribal Chief, and yet Reigns was nowhere to be found. More questions than answers.

He’d like to bring someone to the ring who knows The Bloodline very well, a friend of Cody’s…Jey Uso.

Cody says Jey is the Number One Contender. RAW is about to belong to Jey. No one has earned it more than Jey.

Jey helped him finish the story. He knows when one member of The Judgment Day is present, the rest are not far behind, so he’d love it if he had Jey’s back like Jey had his.

Jey shakes Cody’s hand and they hug. He appreciates it. He’s gotta do it on his own, just be him, The Yeetmaster, Mr. Yeet Down.

Cody asks if he doesn’t need him, if he’s just gotta do it on his own, he understands. Good luck.

They hug again. Cody stops, says one other thing…

Cody: “Until we YEET again.”

They then share a yeet.

Nia Jax is backstage to talk to Cathy, saying there are two types of women in the world, then says she is neither. She brings up The Draft, then says there are two more types of people in this world.

Ugh…I hate me a Nia Jax promo.

Anyway, the Women’s Title is hers.

We head to the ring where Jey is still waiting when from out of nowhere, Finn comes out and attacks him from behind.

Jey Uso vs Finn Balor

Finn gets the upperhand after some back and forth with a cravat from behind. Finn corners Jey and Jey reverses. He hits the corner, hops up top, hits some right hands, until Finn pulls him down. Right hands in the corner till. The ref stops ihm. Finn with a dropkick. Jey ends up outside.

We are back with Jey getting all the offense in. Priest is shown backstage and he’s had enough. He thinks it’s time to say hello.

Finn rakes the eyes and drops an elbow then covers for 1..2.NO!!! Slingblade to Finn! He’s up in the corner! He waits, runs….right into a SUPERKICK! Jey to the top rope! He flies! Finn rolls out the way, Jey rolls through, shotgun dropkick to Jey!

Finn to the top rope! COUP DE—NO!! JEy rolls out the way! SPEAR! Jey to the top rope! USO SPLASH! Cover! 1..2…3!!!!

Winner: Jey Uso
An unfortunate commercial break really cut this thing in half, dropping the quality immensely. Still, this was more of a mean to an end.

Damien Priest comes down with his title to stare Jey down. He enters the ring and stands toe to toe wit Jey, as Finn watches from the mat.

Priest seems bothered, appearing as if he didn’t know this was coming.

Finn gets in the face of Priest to yell at him some then continues to attack Jey. Jey hits a superkick to Dom on the outside! JD chases as Jey runs into te crowd. Jey sends JD into Finn and leaves up the stairs in the crowd. He turns to stare down Priest, who stands on the top rope in the corner.

WE get an angle from Jey walking though the hall towards the outside food area, and follow him through the concourse. Jey pushes a fan out the way and looks to leave the arena. He’s gone, and heads out a door just to see Sami Zayn staring up at the sky.

Jey asks what he’s looking at.

Sami says over 25 years ago, the first show he ever saw in his life was in this building. All these years later, he walks in a champ. Tonight, he walks in through the front the same way he did all those years ago.

We follow Sami as he asks us if we’d like to see the best wrestling city in the world.

We see Sami walk through a crowd of excited fans, and follow him back towards the hallinto the stands as his music hits and damn…

That was beautiful.

Bronson Reed stops Chad before he heads out to tell him that whoever wins will have to answer to him.
