WWE RAW Results (6/19/2023)
Before the first match, Finn Balor sprung a surprise attack on Seth Rollins. Because of how brutal the attack is, they have postponed the scheduled open challenge. Instead, we get The Miz talking a bunch of nonsense. He issues his own open challenge to anyone in Cleveland. After nine months of being sidelined with an injury, Tomasso Ciampa returns to RAW to answer the call.
#1. Tommaso Ciampa vs. The Miz — Winner: Tommaso Ciampa
The Judgment Day is here to let Finn Balor tell us he’s glad he stopped Seth Rollins. Rhea Ripley tells the fans to shut up because she is ‘Mami’ and Balor will bring the World title to the Judgment Day, much like Damian Priest will win Money in the Bank. Also, Dom Dom will put down Cody Rhodes. As usual, Dominik tries cutting a promo but is mercilessly booed by the crowd.
Sami Zayn thinks Kevin Owens has an anger problem. He bets KO that if he can’t make it through the night without blowing up, he will need to address his issues. But if makes it, he will leave it alone. Owens accepts the bet.
Before the next match, we see a TikTok(?) video of Chelsea Green having a rant at some random guy in a car, for no other reason but to show what she’s like.
#2. Chelsea Green & Sonya Deville vs. Kayden Carter & Katana Chance — Winners: Carter & Chance
Cody Rhodes gets a word with Cathy Kelley. He accepts a six-man tag team challenge by The Judgment Day against him and two partners of his choosing.
#3. Indus Sher (w/ Jinder Mahal) vs. Shelton Benjamin & Cedric Alexander — Winners: Indus Sher
Backstage, KO does not get pissed when a dude drops a drink on him by mistake. However, he gets really close to blowing up at Matt Riddle after being asked about watching some old movies. He just manages to compose himself to not lose the bet.
Logan Paul sits on top of a ladder and ridicules his hometown. He says they can’t boo him because he is the best they have. Today, Clevelanders will stop losing when Logan Paul puts some respect back on this city’s name. He got a special invitation to be entered in to the Money In The Bank ladder match in London. After he wins, he will return to Cleveland and they can celebrate like crazy.
Ricochet appears to congratulate him for being in the match. However, he knows that the only reason he’s in this match is because Ricochet made Logan Paul go viral at WrestleMania. Also, it doesn’t change the fact he will be Mr. Money In The Bank. Out comes Shinsuke Nakamura, who is in awe of Logan Paul. He cares very much that he will get to beat him. LA Knight enters to a loud reception… Yeaah! He has a map for Logan Paul which he can follow so he knows where to stick his Prime bottles.
Next up is Santos Escobar, who welcomes Paul to the party. Butch makes his way to the ring and says nothing, because he goes straight for Logan Paul and a fight ensues among all the Money in the Bank participants. Logan takes out some of them with a dive before he climbs a ladder to pose with the briefcase.
#4. Ludwig Kaiser (w/ Gunther) vs. Matt Riddle — Winner: Matt Riddle
After the match, Gunther wants to pick the bones, and he gets his wish. He targets Riddle’s leg out of retribution for what happened to Giovanni Vinci.
Imperium asks KO & Zayn if they saw what happened to Riddle. If they are not really careful, the same will happen to them. Owens starts to lose it, but Zayn shows him something on his phone and they have to go see to whatever it is.
#5. Alpha Academy (w/ Maxxine Dupri) vs. The Viking Raiders (w/ Valhalla) — Winners: The Viking Raiders
#6. Rhea Ripley vs. Natalya — Winner: Rhea Ripley by referee stoppage
Akira Tozawa offers to be Cody Rhodes’ partner, but he doesn’t immediately accept. The text that Zayn got earlier was from Cody asking if they wanted to be his partners. They accept because they did not forget how he helped them on the road to WrestleMania.
#7. [MITB Qualifying] Trish Stratus (w/ Zoey Stark) vs. Raquel Rodriguez — Winner: Trish Stratus by DQ*
*Becky Lynch attacked Trish Stratus, therefore getting Raquel Rodriguez disqualified and handing Stratus the win so she could enter the Money in the Bank match. Lynch looked shocked at the result.
Bron Breakker is told they are unclear if Seth Rollins will compete tomorrow night on NXT. He says Rollins talked a big game, so he doesn’t believe he won’t show up. If you think Seth Rollins got hurt tonight by Finn Balor, just wait to see what he does tomorrow when he hurts him freaking bad and becomes the new World Heavyweight Champion.
Before the next match, Becky Lynch admits she screwed herself. But maybe she can climb this giant mountain she has created, or she goes down in a blaze of glory while taking Trish Stratus & Zoey Stark with her.
#8. Shinsuke Nakamura vs. Bronson Reed — Winner: Bronson Reed with the Tsunami
#9. Cody Rhodes, Sami Zayn & Kevin Owens vs. Judgment Day’s Finn Balor, Damian Priest & Dominik Mysterio (w/ Rhea Ripley) — Winners: Rhodes, Zayn & Owens
