WWE Monday Night RAW Results for July 26, 2021



We begin with a recap of last week’s Ripley/Charlotte main event.

We kick off today’s show with new RAW Women’s Champion, Nikki ASH. She says she’s always wanted to say Welcome to Monday Night RAW. She is happy that everyone’s back together and that she can stand as champion. It feels like a dream and she keeps pinching herself, but this dream is now real. In the past, she didn’t have the confidence because she was afraid to fail.

But then one day she realized if she failed, she failed. No big deal. She’s still Nikki. And when she put on her outfit, it gave her confidence and reminded her and us, no matter what, if you believe in yourself, you can overcome anything. It worked for her, it can work for us. Out comes Charlotte Flair.

Charlotte says Nikki’s fairytale story doesn’t have a happy ending and her as champion is a disgrace. Nikki dressing up like that cannot represent this company. She looks like being an NBC extra with Al Roker, and he’d laugh in Nikki’s face because she’s not a champion. Flair says you have to work to be a champion. She doesn’t believe Nikki’s a champion, but she’s here to add star power and perspective. We take a look at what happened last week.

Nikki was able to cash in on her because Ripley acted like a teenager after failing to beat her again. She wasn’t even on her feet when the bell rang. Nikki stole that title. So she will stand here to be the opportunity and she will get her rematch at Summerslam, and Nikki will have to bow down to the real champion. Flair says this injustice isn’t Nikki’s fault. It’s the crowd’s fault. For months, the crowd cheered after being victims of injustice and we’re jealous of her. So we have to take her down to her level. Out comes Ripley.

Ripley says it’s hard for anyone to be jealous of someone who held a title for a day. But the only way you can win a title is by pinfall or submission, and she got herself disqualified because she knew Ripley was going to beat her. So it should be Ripley who gets to be the number 1 contender’s.

Nikki asks why it should be anyone individually. Charlotte and Ripley both represented the division well, but it’s time for a metamorphosis in the women’s division, and it starts with Nikki as champion. Out comes Pearce and Pearce.

Deville announces a triple threat match for the RAW Women’s Championship at Summerslam. Flair says it’s ridiculous. Nikki is a fluke and Ripley is undeserving and she challenges Nikki to prove it. Nikki accepts and Pearce makes it official. Flair attacks Ripley from behind and Nikki sends Flair out the ring with a dropkick.

Back from the break and out comes WWE Champion Bobby Lashley with MVP. The pyro goes off on the stage as Lashley and MVP march to the ring.

Lashley hits the ring and more pyro goes off. We see how he defeated a returning Keith Lee last week, but was then confronted by a returning WWE Hall of Famer Bill Goldberg, who got in Lashley’s face and said he’s next. MVP takes the mic first and calls on fans to rise and show the proper respect to Lashley. MVP gets cheap heat by taking a shot at the Kansas City Chiefs. He brings up Goldberg disrespecting Lashley last week. A “Goldberg!” chant starts up.

MVP says everyone has been talking about Goldberg vs. Lashley and he gets it, but only that question can be answered by Lashley. MVP asks Lashley if Goldberg is next. Lashley says he’s not even going to dignify Goldberg’s actions with a response. Lashley says this is his ring and he won’t be disrespected by anyone. The music hits and out comes Cedric Alexander to interrupt.

Cedric says disrespect is how Lashley kicked him out of The Hurt Business earlier this year. Cedric says Lashley kicked him out because he knows Cedric is better. Cedric says tonight, Prime Alexander is stepping up and he wants his shot. The music interrupts and out comes Shelton Benjamin. Shelton says before Lashley answers that question… Shelton points to how annoying the sound of Cedric’s voice is. Fans pop. Shelton isn’t here to cry about The Hurt Business because it’s over. He’s here to give Lashley a real challenge. Everyone is in the ring now. Cedric and Shelton have words. MVP says they both sound ridiculous and Lashley doesn’t have time for them because they’re not on the agenda. Lashley interrupts and says he’ll take them both on… at the same time. Lashley calls for a referee.

– Sarah Schreiber is backstage with Charlotte Flair in the Gorilla Position. Flair says Nikki A.S.H. only won the title last week because of what Rhea Ripley did to her. Flair is tired of Almost Superstars running down the women’s division. Flair goes on and says there would not be a women’s champion in WWE if it weren’t for her, and she will prove that tonight against Nikki. Flair walks off.

Nikki rushes back to the top and hits the crossbody but Flair holds it and rolls through for the pin to get the non-title win.

He congratulates Flair but she isn’t happy with this, asking him what did he expect. Flair keeps asking why he’s congratulating her. Flair takes the mic and starts talking trash to Nikki, saying she thinks she can be a super hero by just putting on a mask and cape. Flair tells Nikki that no one is in her league, no one. Fans boo Flair as she says it’s true, nobody… Sorry, not sorry. Flair hands the mic back and stands tall again.

Nikki says she’s always said “Almost a Super Hero” and she may have lost but she showed that she almost could’ve beat Flair. Nikki says she has the confidence to beat Flair next week, so she’s challenging Flair to a rematch next Monday. Nikki tosses the mic and gets hyped up. Flair tells them to hand her mic back.
