Here The WWE Monday Night Raw Full Results:

– Tonight’s WWE Raw opened with Raw Women’s Champion Bianca Belair making her way to the ring. Belair takes the mic and welcomes us to the freshest show on TV. She says as a fighting champion, she was looking forward to defending against Rhea Ripley at Money In the Bank. Belair says she hates to be the one to break this news, but Ripley will not be medically cleared to compete, so their match isn’t happening yet. 
Belair goes on about how she will be waiting and ready when Ripley is cleared. Belair announces Liv Morgan, Alexa Bliss, Carmella, Asuka and Becky Lynch for a Fatal 5 Way on tonight’s show, with the winner challenging her at Money In the Bank. Belair says all five women are amazing contenders but she is… the music interrupts and out comes Becky Lynch. 
Lynch says there is only one contender and Belair knows it is she, Lynch. Lynch reminds us she still hasn’t received her rematch after they had the greatest women’s wrestling match in wrestling history. Lynch goes on about how she had the title won at Hell In a Cell, but Belair stole it from her.
Becky Lynch says she is being made to jump through hoops but it’s OK because when she wins this Sunday, it will make the title win that much sweeter. The music interrupts and here comes Asuka, and she’s laughing at Lynch. Asuka asks Lynch if she’s crying again. Asuka enters the ring and asks Lynch if she’s still Big Time Baby. Lynch says maybe Asuka would would be doing better for herself if she stopped making Simpsons memes. 
Now, music interrupts and here comes Liv Morgan, who says she’s always ready to fight. Liv is in a great mood tonight but has already earned her spot at Money In the Bank, something Lynch hasn’t. Liv says she will gladly trade that Ladder Match spot for the match with Belair. Now, music hits and here comes Carmella next. She points to how everyone is a former champion except Liv. Carmella asks the others who thinks we should kick Liv out of the match to make it a Fatal 4 Way.
Liv says she’s here because she’s been here, and if she talks to her like that again, Liv will make sure she has a few more weeks off. They both have some more words until the music hits and here comes Alexa Bliss. She’s carrying Lilly and insulting Carmella on the mic. Bliss threatens to beat Carmella’s face in if she doesn’t stop being a hypocrite and leave Liv alone. Belair interrupts and says everyone knows they can run their mouths, but the WWE Universe is ready for some action.
– Carmella defeated Liv Morgan, Alexa Bliss, Becky Lynch and Asuka in Fatal 5 Way match and became the new challenger for Raw Women’s Championship at Money In The Bank premium live event. After the match, Carmella hits the corner to celebrate as a surprised Bianca Belair stands up and stares up at her from ringside. The announcers confirm Carmella vs. Belair for Money In the Bank.
– Becky Lynch quickly rushes backstage to Adam Pearce. She’s venting and ranting about what happened and how she should be champion by now. Lynch is still ranting at Pearce in the Gorilla Position. She says because she’s on the Money In the Bank poster, she should be going to Money In the Bank. Pearce says she has to earn it. He makes Lynch vs. Asuka official for tonight’s show, with the winner earning a spot in the Women’s MITB Ladder Match. Lynch throws a fit when Pearce makes the match for tonight and walks off.
– “No Chance” music hits and here comes Vince McMahon makes his way out to a big pop from the crowd. Mike Rome does the introduction as Mr. McMahon struts into the ring. Vince takes the mic and thanks everyone. He says this is the 1,517th edition of Raw, which continues to make it the longest-running episodic TV show in history.
Vince says and for that, he thanks everyone. Vince says Raw has been on the air for almost 30 years, and for 20 of those it’s been dominated by the greatest WWE Superstar of all-time, who will return next week. Vince says he makes reference to no less than Mr. Hustle, Loyalty & Respect – John Cena. The crowd pops and Vince drops the mic, then heads backstage.
– The announcers send us to a video package on Friday’s SmackDown main event, which saw Roman Reigns retain the Undisputed WWE Universal Title over Riddle. We also see how Brock Lesnar returned after the match and took out The Bloodline with F5s. The announcers hype Lesnar vs. Reigns in a No Holds Barred match for SummerSlam on July 31 in Nashville.
– Riddle is in the ring and talks about how The Bloodline recently tried to end Randy Orton’s career, and that’s when he promised Randy he’d get vengeance. Riddle says he came so close to beating Undisputed WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns on Friday’s SmackDown, but at the end of the day, Roman is Roman, he is The Tribal Chief, and he beat Riddle with a Spear that almost broke him in half.
Riddle says he let himself down, all the fans down, and most importantly, he let his best bro, his mentor Randy down. Riddle says he may be down but he’s not out, and Roman will have to kill him. Riddle says he may not be able to directly challenge Reigns for his Undisputed WWE Universal Title, but he can win Money In the Bank. Riddle knows it’s a long shot, but if he can cash in and win to end Reigns’ reign, and get what he and Randy truly desire. 
Riddle now calls out Seth Rollins and talks some trash. He says Rollins hit his bro Cody Rhodes in the back with a sledgehammer, and now Riddle wants to hit Rollins in the back with a ladder. Music hits and here comes Omos with MVP. MVP talks about Riddle hanging out with different rappers and smoking their marijuana because that’s the only way he would be so delusional, smoking off their top-shelf stash. 
MVP goes on about how Omos will give Riddle a bad come-down and stop his Money In the Bank journey tonight. Riddle says he will get high… but he will come down with the RKO on Omos. Riddle drops the mic and crowd cheers.
– Omos defeated Riddle via pinfall and qualified for Men’s Money In The Bank Ladder Match. After the match, Omos hits another big chokeslam to Riddle, then marches out of the ring. Riddle is trying to recover but music hits and here comes Seth Rollins, slowly strutting to the ring. Riddle slowly gets back to his feet, then, Rollins immediately rocks Riddle with a shot to the jaw, then tosses him out of the ring and starts laughing. 
Riddle takes the mic and says he’s sorry, he doesn’t share air time with losers. Rollins goes on about Riddle being a loser and he shouldn’t be too hard on Riddle because it didn’t matter if he qualified, because no one in the MITB Ladder Match can beat Roman Reigns, because everyone knows only one man in the world has Reigns’ number – Seth Rollins. 
Rollins says Reigns has been dodging him since he emotionally broke him at the Royal Rumble, but in two weeks, Rollins will grab the contract and then he will go looking for Roman. If we thought the first time Rollins cashed in his Money In the Bank contract was something, you haven’t seen anything yet because Rollins is a visionary, a revolutionary, he is Seth Freakin’ Rollins… Riddle suddenly drops Rollins but Rollins comes right back and hits Stomp on the Riddle and taunts him.
– WWE United States Champion Theory makes his way to the ring. He hits the ring and Theory is posing on the same podium in the middle of the ring. Theory says no one knows what it’s like to be the prodigy, the chosen one, or better yet, the new face of WWE. Fans boo and Theory says that’s OK because he doesn’t expect fans to relate to the youngest champion in history.
Theory tells the crowd to shut up a few times, and goes on bragging about how far he is into his career, how he’s better than Lashley. Theory says next week might be the 20 year anniversary for John Cena, but his time is up, and Theory’s is now. Theory goes on and says last week we didn’t get to see all of his poses. So tonight he will show us in The Theory Invitational Pose-Down.
The music starts up as Theory oils himself up, then starts his various poses while ranting on the head-set. Lashley suddenly appears behind Theory but he doesn’t see him. Fans pop for Lashley but Theory thinks they’re cheering for him until the “Bobby!” chant starts up. 
Theory tells them to shut up so he can take his selfie. He takes it and sees Lashley in the photo. Theory turns around and Lashley attacks, spraying him with baby oil, and then taking him out with a big Spear and sends him to the floor now.
Lashley takes the mic and says he’s not asking Theory, he’s telling him – this United States Title is coming home with Lashley. Theory sits up on the floor and looks on as Lashley’s music hits. Lashley raises the title in the air as fans cheer him on. Lashley offers to hand the title to Theory but fakes him out. Theory finally gets the title back and continues to seethe at ringside as Lashley poses in the corner.
– Kevin Patrick stops Theory at backstage and asks about Bobby Lashley’s challenge. Theory says Lashley deserves nothing, and he wishes he can hold this United States Title. Theory says however, he was in Adam Pearce’s office and Pearce was on the phone, but he heard an idea Theory pitched, and now it’s on. 
Lashley can fight for the title at Money In the Bank, but only if he can defeat three opponents, one after the other, in a Gauntlet Match tonight. Theory guarantees Lashley won’t be able to do it.
The Undisputed WWE Tag Team Champions The Usos in the ring and have the mic. They brag about The Bloodline’s success and how they have all the gold. They say like he did with Riddle, Undisputed WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns will smash Brock Lesnar, again, and they will smash The Street Profits, again. 
The music interrupts and here come The Street Profits – Angelo Dawkins with Montez Ford. The Profits talk some trash while heading to the ring. Dawkins bets he can beat Jey’s ass. The two teams face off in the middle of the ring now. Ford tells The Usos to enjoy their reign while they can, because The Profits are up… and they want the smoke. These two teams will meet at Money In the Bank.
– Angelo Dawkins defeated Jey Uso via pinfall.
– We go to backstage, we see Elias and his younger brother Ezekiel sitting in a couch. They are using some split-screen tech here. Zeke says so much has happened since he last saw his brother – he made his WWE debut, won his first match, but is still dealing with doubters like Kevin Owens. Zeke asks Elias where he’s been. 
Elias has been traveling around the world, writing songs and playing shows, but nothing compares to being in front of the WWE Universe playing his guitar. Zeke brings up how Elias once said bad things about places like Nebraska. Elias says he’s a changed man and watching Zeke has changed his perspective. Elias just hopes the WWE Universe remembers WWE stands for Walk With Elias. Zeke asks him if he saw the Zeke Freaks last week, and says of course they remember.
Ezekiel says this means the world to him, and he knows their parents are watching at home like they used to watch. Ezekiel says Elias might see him in the Money In the Bank match, then just imagine Zeke the Universal Champion… then everyone will want to Speak With Zeke. Elias says just don’t get ahead of yourself, focus on what’s in front of you. Elias likes the mean streak Ezekiel has had. Elias says Zeke is doing a great job, and he loves him. Elias says he’s got to tune his guitar before the concert, so Ezekiel walks off.
– Elias is in the ring for his return concert. He says it’s great to be back in front of the great people of Nebraska. He thanks them for welcoming him back, and for taking care of his younger brother, Ezekiel. Elias says he’s here to remind everyone about a universal truth, that you should never forget – WWE stands for Walk With Elias. Elias says he really missed that. 
In light of everything going on, Elias decided to kick this concert off with a song for his little brother, Zeke. Elias starts playing but Kevin Owens quickly interrupts. Owens says we don’t have time for this because Elias is just a liar. Owens says Elias may have the wise people of Nebraska fooled, but he’s French-Canadian and he knows Elias and Zeke are the same person. He wasn’t fooled by the special effects of the backstage segment. Zeke suddenly appears on the big screen, calling Owens attention.
Zeke says he and Elias have been telling Owens the truth, and Owens has to accept it, then move on. Zeke wishes good luck to his brother for the concert. Elias tells Owens they are not lying. He begins playing the song for Owens, which has a chorus of “KO Is a Liar!” Owens enters the ring now, grabs Elias’ guitar, and tosses it out of the ring. Then, Elias attacks Owens and smashes a guitar over his back. Elias’ theme starts back up as Owens rolls to the floor in pain. Elias thanks the crowd.
– Kevin Owens stumbles backstage, his back hurting. Kevin Patrick asks if he now realizes Elias is not Ezekiel. Owens seethes and says he’s still not fooled, and he’s challenging one of them to a match next week. Zeke appears and says the challenge is accepted. Zeke walks back off and Owens returns to losing his mind in a tantrum.
– Bobby Lashley defeated Otis, Chad Gable and Theory in Gauntlet Match and became the new #1 contender for WWE United States Championship.
– WWE Raw Women’s Champion Bianca Belair at backstage with Sarah Schreiber now. Belair says Carmella has been gone but she showed up and showed out tonight. Belair goes on and says Carmella has always been an amazing competitor, recalling some of her accomplishments. 
Belair says she won’t underestimate Carmella, she will treat her exactly like she’d treat Rhea Ripley because she stays ready so she doesn’t have to get ready, no matter who it is. She goes on about being The EST of WWE but suddenly Carmella rushes in out of nowhere and smashes her in the back of the head to drop her. Carmella talks some trash and says Mella Is Money. Carmella walks off as Belair gets back to her feet.
– The Miz makes his way to the ring for the another must see edition of MizTV. He says he’s anxious to get to the bottom of what’s been going on with tonight’s guest. The music hits and here comes AJ Styles. Miz says AJ has been going through some issues as of late. Miz recalls AJ’s recent issues with WWE Hall of Famer Edge, which ended with Damian Priest turning on AJ.
Then last week AJ wanted to get Seth Rollins back so bad for what he did to Cody Rhodes, it cost him as pot in Money In the Bank, then tonight, AJ’s former partner Omos qualified for the MITB Ladder Match. Miz says he’s embarrassed for AJ. Miz says he’d never do things that way… AJ says if Miz brought him out here to ridicule him, he’s going about it the wrong way.
Miz says he brought AJ out here so the University of Nebraska students can get a preview of what it’s like to be a failure. AJ gets a big pop for mentioning the Cornhuskers college football team. AJ brings up how Maryse recently said Miz has “tiny balls” and Miz says “tiny balls” is not becoming a thing. AJ continues to taunt him and Miz yells out about how he has massive, gigantic, python-sized balls, not tiny balls. 
Fans chant “tiny balls!” at Miz. Miz goes on bragging about how he defeated John Cena, then brags about his family and their “Miz & Mrs.” show, and declares that he is a big success. Miz asks AJ what it feels like to be a big disappointment. AJ says Miz wants him to get upset and fly off the handle, but he’s not playing Miz’s game. AJ says he’s not in Money In the Bank, but that’s on him, he lost one of his best friends and he got wrapped up in the Cody Rhodes stuff with Seth Rollins, but that’s all on him.
AJ touts his success in dealing with adversity, and says that’s what made him Phenomenal. AJ goes on and says when he gets disrespected, he doesn’t come out and whine on his little talk show like Miz does… he does this. AJ drops Miz with a microphone shot to the face. Ciampa suddenly attacks AJ out of nowhere and knocks him out of the ring. Ciampa stands tall as AJ looks back at him from the floor.
– AJ Styles defeated Ciampa via pinfall. After the match, AJ stood tall but Miz immediately rushes the ring to attack but AJ catches him with a pele kick. AJ drops Miz with a Styles Clash in the ring now. AJ then puts on Miz’s sunglasses and poses in the middle of the ring.
– We see how Veer Mahaan dominated Rey Mysterio again last week. Kevin Patrick is on the stage with Veer now, asking about last week. Patrick says some people are calling it a gruesome win. Veer asks, only some? He says that’s a shame because what he did to The Mysterios is only the beginning as WWE has never seen hunger like his before, and Veer loves carnage.
Veer further says no one knows how to stop him because he can’t be stopped. Veer speaks some in his native tongue now, then says he will not be stopped until there is nothing left to pick off their bones. Fear Veer, he says to end the segment.
– Asuka defeated Becky Lynch via pinfall and qualified for the Women’s Money In The Bank Ladder Match. After the match, Asuka stood tall as she’s confirmed for the Women’s Money In the Bank Ladder Match. Becky  Lynch seethes and throws a fit at ringside now. Asuka continues her celebration while an emotional Lynch sits up against the ring apron and Monday Night Raw goes off the air.
