Here The WWE Monday Night Raw Full Results:
– The Judgment Day defeated Dolph Ziggler and AJ Styles via pinfall. After the match, The Judgment Day stood tall and go to leave but they stop when a SUV is shown arriving on the big screen. Edge hops out and he’s making his way into the arena. The Judgment Day changes their minds and now they’re headed back to the ring to wait for a fight.
The Judgment Day is in the ring with a mic. Balor rants and raves to boos, wondering where their documentary is, where is his respect as a legend. Priest says Balor told no lies. Priest goes on ranting about Edge and calls him out to face his judgment day so they can finish him off, finish what was started last week. Priest tosses the mic and they wait. The music finally hits and here comes Edge to a big pop. 
Edge says Balor made some good and some absolutely bad points. He says he and Rey Mysterio didn’t come back to steal Balor’s glory, they came back to show him how to reach Edge’s glory but his ego is too big and got in the way. Edge gets a pop from the Pittsburgh crowd. Edge says they were right, Beth isn’t here to watch his back. Edge praises his wife as a badass and warns Ripley to keep her hands to herself or she will find out why Beth is The Glamazon, kid. 
Edge says he and Priest went to war last week but Edge beat him. So now Edge is by himself, facing the three of them. Edge is on the apron now as he knocks the three and says all those months under his learning three and they didn’t pay attention… Edge says because he didn’t come here alone. Rey and Dominik Mysterio attack from behind and unload on Edge an Priest with kendo stick shots as fans cheer them on. Edge sends Priest to the floor and follows him to keep brawling. 
Ripley and Dominik are alone in the ring now. Dominik stares her down with a kendo stick in hand. Ripley pleads a bit but fans want to see him hit her, and he’s acting like he might want to hit her, or maybe not as he backs away as she slowly approaches. Ripley grabs the stick and takes it from Dominik as fans boo. Edge and Rey rush in as Ripley threatens them with the stick, daring them to do something. Ripley laughs at Edge and Rey as Balor and Priest pull Ripley out of the ring to safety. Priest says they’re not done yet. The Judgment Day retreats through the crowd while the two sides stare each other down.
– The Miz and Ciampa are walking at backstage now when Kevin Patrick approaches them for comment. Ciampa jumps at Patrick a bit and warns him about approaching them out of nowhere like that right now. Patrick says people are surprised The Miz is here and asks him about what happened last week. Miz says he can’t… he won’t discuss what happened, he doesn’t know why we’re talking about Lumis because he’s not even a WWE Superstar, so just move on. Patrick brings up how Lumis was arrested on WWE NXT and asks Miz if he has any insight. Miz says again, he doesn’t want to talk about Lumis. He adjusts Patrick’s tie and walks off with Ciampa.
– We got a quick backstage promo from Raquel Rodriguez and Aliyah, who are confident about winning tonight’s main event to become the new WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions.
– Alexa Bliss, Bianca Belair and Asuka defeated Dani Mo, Kayla Sparks and Katie Ark via submission. After the match, Bliss, Belair and Asuka stood tall and they cut quick promos on Bayley, IYO SKY and Dakota Kai, promising to get the win at WWE Clash at The Castle and take control of Raw.
– The Miz and Ciampa are at backstage with Adam Pearce now. Ciampa tells Pearce how Miz has a lot of distractions as he prepares to face WWE United States Champion Bobby Lashley tonight. Pearce says in regards to what happened last week with Dexter Lumis, Miz has the full support of the company, whatever resources he needs, counseling, someone to talk to, anything, just let Pearce know. Miz doesn’t want to talk about it, he just wants to focus on tonight’s match. 
Pearce will let him do that but he must inform Miz that Lumis has been released from police custody. Miz asks how that is possible. Pearce says Miz neglected to prosecute and didn’t even tell the police anything, the charges weren’t strong enough to hold Lumis. Pearce says Miz not talking about this is making it easier for Lumis to get away with it. Miz says he has nothing to say about it. Pearce is just trying to help. Miz doesn’t believe this and asks if that’s why he put Miz in a match with Lashley after what happened last week. Pearce asks what did happen last week but Miz doesn’t want to talk about it.
– WWE Hall of Famer Kurt Angle makes his way to the ring to a big hometown pop from the Pittsburgh crowd. Angle is wearing his American flag robe and his Olympic gold medal. Angle takes the mic and says it’s so good to be back in his hometown. He plugs WWE Clash at The Castle and how good it will be, so don’t miss it. The music quickly interrupts and here comes Alpha Academy’s Chad Gable and Otis.
Gable has a mic as he and Otis are with Angle in the middle of the ring. Gable talks about how Angle’s story originally motivated him and inspired him, and let’s not forget to mention Angle won a Gold medal. Angle reminds us he won it with a broken friggin’ neck and fans pop. Gable reminds us how Alpha Academy is looking for a new member. Gable was going to continue his open challenge here in Pittsburgh but there’s not a shred of talent among these mouth-breathers here. Fans boo and Gable tries to “shoosh!” them. The boos get louder now as Gable goes to speak again. 
Gable thinks they and Angle can change the world so for tonight, one night only, he is offering 100% no questions asked, full acceptance for Angle to join Alpha Academy. Gable tells Otis to present Angle with the official Alpha Academy jacket, and says it’s great to have him. Angle says he will pass. Fans pop. Gable can’t believe it. Angle says it’s true, it’s damn true… Gable yells “shoosh!” at Angle. 
Angle asks if he really did that. Gable says “please shoosh!” and Angle tells him to “shoosh!” but Gable says you can’t “shoosh a shoosher” here. They repeatedly yell “shoosh!” at each other in the middle of the ring. Gable says that’s enough of this crap. Gable tells Otis to show Angle what happens when you turn down an invite from The Academy. The music interrupts and here comes The Street Profits to make the save – Montez Ford and Angelo Dawkins.
Ford and Dawkins rush the ring as Alpha Academy falls back. Ford gives a shout-out to Pittsburgh and says if you mess with Kurt, you must want to get hurt. They bring up how their bus was vandalized on SmackDown by Maximum Male Models and Los Lotharios. The Profits are looking for a fight tonight because they are up and they want the smoke. Gable says they will accept the match but under one condition – after they win, Angle must join Alpha Academy and do what Master Gable says every day as he coaches Angle to the next level. Thank you! Angle and The Profits do their signature lines to end the segment as the two sides face off. 
– The Street Profits defeated Alpha Academy via pinfall. After the match, The Profits stood tall in the middle of the ring and grab their red Solo cups to celebrate. Then they go to ringside to have a toast with Angle. Angle takes the drink but spits it out, implying there was alcohol in his cup but he no longer drinks. Angle now pulls out three bottles of milk and they drink them.
– We see Riddle and Seth Rollins getting ready for a split-screen interview backstage. Jimmy plays footage from earlier today that shows Riddle and Seth Rollins fighting in the parking lot while security and WWE officials tried to keep them apart. Corey Graves is at backstage now, and he’s joined by Rollins and Riddle for a split-screen interview.
Graves asks what happened earlier and Rollins says Riddle was creeping around his bus. Riddle says he was talking on the phone to Randy Orton and… they both start talking over each other. Graves asks where this all began, and mentions how Rollins targeted Riddle. Rollins dismisses the idea and says it’s now his time, not Riddle’s time, and Riddle isn’t on his level. Riddle says Rollins is just afraid Riddle will embarrass him like Cody Rhodes and Roman Reigns have. 
Rollins says it’s not about them, and he lets Riddle on a little secret – no one likes Riddle or his stupid face. Rollins says when he finishes the job he started at Madison Square Garden it won’t just be for himself, it will be for everyone. Riddle says he’s here for a long time. Rollins says if he has to put Riddle on the shelf next to Rhodes, then so be it. Rollins says he’s moving on from Riddle and going for the Undisputed WWE Universal Title and there’s nothing Riddle can do about it. 
Graves asks what we can expect at Clash at The Castle this Saturday. Rollins says he will steal the show, stomp Riddle’s head into the mat one more time, and show him once and for all who the man around here is. Riddle says he will prove that there’s only one man in Rollins’ marriage, and that’s Becky Lynch. Graves says unfortunately we’re out of time but the WWE Universe can’t wait to see them settle this in the ring on Saturday.
– The Miz and Ciampa are at backstage headed to the ring. Miz walks past a security guard but stops and goes back to stare at him for a second. Ciampa tells Miz to focus on the match ahead, and Miz agrees but he’s a bit flustered as they continue walking.
– The announcers show us what happened a few minutes ago when Seth Rollins and Riddle were still mic’d up during the commercial. They had a few words and Rollins mentioned how Riddle’s wife took their kids and left, and says they don’t want to see Riddle’s b**** ass. Rollins repeatedly called Riddle a b**** while talking trash. Riddle got upset and asked where the hell Rollins was at. 
Riddle says he’s going to smash Rollins’ face in. Riddle warned Rollins to keep playing games and he will f*** him up. Riddle fumes and seethes in his chair as Rollins removes his mic and walks away from his interview location. Riddle finally snatches his mic off an also walks away from where he was at. We go back to the announcers and Jimmy apologizes for the language. Graves talks about how personal this feud is and says one of them likely won’t walk out of Cardiff.
– Bobby Lashley defeated The Miz via submission. At the closing moments, Miz went for Skull Crushing Finale but suddenly he spots Dexter Lumis in the crowd and points at him. He tells Ciampa to get security to get rid of Lumis. Then, Lashley took the advantage and goes for hurt lock and Miz taps out. After the match, Lashley stood tall with the title in the air. Miz is throwing a fit about Lumis to end the segment.
– WWE Hall of Famers Edge and Kurt Angle are at backstage now. Edge has photos on large white poster board, showing some of their greatest moments together. There are messages on the back of each poster – Sorry Rey And I Beat U For The Tag Titles, Sorry I Beat U For The U.S. Title, Sorry I Shaved Your Head Bald, Sorry I Started The U Suck Chant, But, You Still Suck (with an arrow pointing up at Angle). Angle is in a great mood now thanks to Edge he says. He says he loves Edge too an it was great seeing him. They hug and shake hands, and Edge walks off. 
Angle turns around to Rey Mysterio and Dominik Mysterio. He talks about how Edge is such a good guy, but The Mysterios see the messages on the back of the posters. Angle sees the “U Still Suck (arrow)” poster and says Edge did it again! Angle walks off. Dominik brings up Rey and Edge vs. The Judgment Day at WWE Clash at The Castle and says he thought it was going to be a family thing this Saturday. 
Rey says it still is because Edge is like family. Rey says the reason he chose Edge to team with it because he needs the experience by his side, but he still needs Dominik in their corner. Rey asks his son if he will be there, and Dominik says he understands his dad needs experience. They embrace to end the segment.
– The announcers show us a video on WWE and Pediatric Cancer Awareness Month, and how Connor’s Cure started here in Pittsburgh several years ago. WWE Ambassadors Titus O’Neil and Dana Warrior are sitting in the front row with several kids from Team Connor’s Cure.
– The Bloodline – Sami Zayn and Undisputed WWE Tag Team Champions The Usos, Jey Uso and Jimmy Uso. The Usos take the mic now and announce that The Bloodline is in Raw’s city. They hype up Reigns’ two-year title reign and the celebration this coming Friday on SmackDown. It will be a big celebration for your Tribal Chief. Sami says he wants to add something that will make the celebration even bigger if you can believe it – Reigns has appointed him Master of Ceremonies for the night. As Honorary Uce, Sami says that’s huge… he turns around to Jey staring at him. 
Sami starts talking again and now he’s hyping up The Usos to ease the tension. The Usos declare that The Bloodline is running both shows, and Reigns will keep his titles at WWE Clash at The Castle. The music interrupts and here comes Kevin Owens. Sami is telling The Usos he didn’t know his best friend was coming. Owens speaks from the stage and says first of all, The Bloodline doesn’t run anything on Monday nights because he’s made it clear in recent weeks that Raw is still The Kevin Owens Show. 
Owens is glad they’re here so he can remind them to tell their boss that he, as far as Owens is concerned, still owes Owens one. Jey asks Sami if this is his boy. Owens asks the same and laughs. Sami says technically yes. Jey says Sami better get his boy before Jey does. Sami tells everyone to calm down and he will explain this to Owens. Sami says Reigns doesn’t owe Owens or anybody anything, ever. Sami says that’s how it is.
Owens didn’t know Sami could make himself look stupider than he did when he grew that insane hair out, but he does every week when he hangs with these guys and lets them treat him the way they do. Owens is genuinely sad to see Sami forget he is absolutely one of the greatest in-ring performers of all-time but now he’s reduced to being The Bloodline’s clown, and it’s pathetic. Owens says he sees Sami as a brother but it’s sad to see what’s happened to him, and he thinks Sami should look in the mirror, then reassess things. 
Sami says Owens doesn’t know what he’s talking about, he’s just like the fans online who send him memes poking fun, and he can’t understand that The Usos actually like him. Sami says Jimmy likes him, they shake and Sami says the same about Jey but says they’re working on their relationship. Sami says most importantly, Reigns likes him and invited him to his personal dressing room, and at SmackDown it was the four of them united to take out McIntyre. 
Uso threatens Owens that they will drop him like they did McIntyre if he doesn’t leave. Owens walks up the steel ring steps now. He doesn’t care what they did to McIntyre, but he does care what Jey and Paul Heyman did to him, saying Jey and Heyman are the only reason Owens didn’t put an end to Reigns title reign 18 months ago. Owens says on Friday they can celebrate Reigns’ two-year reign but they can also celebrate two years of Jey having his head stuck up his cousin’s ass. 
Sami gets in between Owens and The Usos now and says he’s trying to keep the peace and doesn’t want problems, but Owens is begging for Jey to kick his ass. Jey and Owens face off now. Owens says this is the part they drop the microphones, get a referee out here and just fight. They drop the mics and have words as fans cheer. A referee runs to the ring and they get ready to start fight.
– Kevin Owens defeated Jey Uso via pinfall. After the match, Owens heads to the stage and yells at The Usos, telling them to remind Reigns he didn’t forget. The Usos have words with Sami to end the segment.
– Bayley, IYO SKY and Dakota Kai are at backstage now. Bayley says they’re needed to bring the women’s division back to life and that starts Saturday at WWE Clash at The Castle when they take out Bianca Belair, Asuka and Alexa Bliss. Bayley says then people will be looking up at her again as the role model while they all look down at everyone else. Kai says this will not stop at Raw because they are taking over the entire company. They will prove they’re in control tonight when they win the WWE Women’s Tag Team Titles. 
Kai says Raquel Rodriguez and Aliyah beat some of the best to get here but that just means it will hurt that much more when they send them back to SmackDown. Shirai speaks some in Japanese and says they will leave Raw as the new WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions.
– The camera cuts backstage to The Miz loading up his SUV to leave. Ciampa asks if he will be OK and Miz promises he will be fine. Kevin Patrick walks up for comments on what happened earlier but Miz doesn’t want to talk about it. Miz starts up his truck and drives off as we see Dexter Lumis sitting in the very back seat.
– We got to see footage from earlier today, showing Gargano sitting in the empty arena with a WWE camera man. He’s asked how it felt to return last week. Gargano says it meant everything, and talks about having goosebumps from the chants and “Johnny Wrestling!” chants. He says it’s not just a fun nickname, wrestling is his life and it’s been out of his life for 9 months, which is the longest he’s been out of the ring since he was 8 years old. Gargano is excited to get back into arenas like this one to prove this is what he was born to do. 
He’s asked if Theory ruined his return. Gargano says no as he was excited to see Theory and say what you want about him, but Theory is like family. He’s watched Theory’s success and he has the genetic gifts Gargano doesn’t. He goes on about Theory’s success and praises him, and says he didn’t have to start from the bottom due to who he knows and his gifts. Gargano mentions how he hasn’t seen or heard from Theory in 9 months, he didn’t even call when the baby was born. 
Theory comes walking down the stairs now with his Money In the Bank briefcase. He just wants to talk, and tells Gargano to relax, sit back down and talk. Theory asks why Gargano didn’t call when he became United States Champion or the youngest Mr. Money In the Bank. Gargano was busy with family but Theory says those are just excuses, diapers and feeding are just more excuses. Theory says maybe Gargano didn’t call him because he’s a little jealous of Theory, sitting on his couch playing stay-at-home dad, watching Theory compete at WrestleMania, watching Theory become the youngest Mr. MITB. 
Theory says he knows that gets under Gargano’s skin, but honestly from his perspective, he expected better from Gargano. Theory says he guesses it’s true what they say about it being lonely at the top. Theory welcomes Gargano to Raw and wishes him good luck because now he’s swimming with the sharks. Theory laughs and walks off. Gargano sits back down and looks a bit concerned.
– Aliyah and Raquel Rodriguez defeated Dakota Kai and IYO SKY via pinfall and became the new WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions. After the match, Kai and SKY quickly retreat from the ring and the new champions begin to celebrate. Belair, Asuka and Bliss come back to ringside to applaud Rodriguez and Aliyah as they begin their celebration, then they join them in the middle of the ring. 
Bayley, Kai and SKY look shocked while standing on the entrance-way now. The pyro goes off in the arena as Rodriguez and Aliyah celebrate with Asuka, Belair and Bliss. The announcers hype the Clash at The Castle card now. The Clash at The Castle go-home edition of Monday Night Raw goes off the air with the new champions celebrating while Bliss, Asuka and Belair pose on the ropes to taunt Bayley, SKY and Kai.
