Here are the Monday Night RAW results for September 2, 2019.
We open with the contract signing for the Universal Championship match at Clash of Champions between RAW Tag Team Champions Seth Rollins and Braun Strowman. Both men enter, Strowman first and Seth second.
Seth says he’s walking in with the intention of walking into Clash of Champions as a double champion and walking out as a double champion. He can’t speak for Braun, but those are his intentions. Braun agrees, and he says no one speaks for him. Braun says it will be awkward when his tag team partner becomes the Universal Champion.
Seth says that it would be awkward, but he says in order to become Universal Champion, he slayed the beast, which is something Braun never did. At Clash of Champions, Seth will slay a monster. Both men sign before AJ Styles and the OC come out.
At Clash of Champions, AJ Styles says history will be made. AJ says Braun got a title shot just because he stared at the Universal Championship. He says by proxy, the United States Champion should be first in line to get a shot at the Universal Title.
AJ wonders who he is facing at Clash of Champions. AJ says maybe the first one to stare at his title will probably get one. He jokingly tells the OC to not look at it. AJ says it gets more ridiculous because Robert Roode and Dolph Ziggler aren’t even a team and they got a tag title shot.
AJ says if the Good Brothers doesn’t get what they want, and if AJ doesn’t get what he wants, no one will get what they want. Cole tells AJ they’re trying to conduct business and Styles tells him to shut up.
AJ grabs the contract, rips it, and throws it in the air. Strowman throws the table at AJ and Rollins and Strowman clear the ring.
