WWE Monday Night RAW Results: RAW Reunion Builds To SummerSlam

The July 22 episode of Monday Night RAW is a special one as former WWE superstars return for the RAW Reunion.

In the same vein as the SmackDown 1000 and RAW 25th Anniversary shows, former WWE superstars will appear in various segments throughout the evening. However, the promotion is also ramping up towards SummerSlam in August so there are still plenty of storylines that will begin, or continue, tonight as we head towards the "biggest party of the summer."

One confirmed segment for tonight is a Moment of Bliss. Alexa Bliss will have the RAW Women's Champion, Becky Lynch as a special guest ahead of the champ's SummerSlam match against Natalya.

Bliss has said that she plans to "expose Becky Lynch's past" on tonight's Moment of Bliss, but does The Man have something else planned for Alexa?

Seth Rollins lost his Universal Championship at Extreme Rules after Brock Lesnar cashed-in. Now Rollins is on the hunt for the title once again after winning last week's 10-man battle royal. As Seth gets ready for his rematch against Lesnar at SummerSlam, how will "The Architect" prepare for his match? Will he have a tune up match or two before his bout against Lesnar? There's plenty of superstars on RAW who would want a piece of Rollins.

In the U.S. Championship scene, champion AJ Styles and The Club are looking to continue dominating the midcard on Monday Night RAW by taking out former champion Ricochet. While Ricochet retaliated last week, the numbers game is against him. How will Ricochet attempt to get event with Styles and The Club tonight?

Here's everything that happened on the July 22 episode of Monday Night RAW.
