WWE 'Monday Night RAW' Results: Extreme Rules Fallout Begins Tonight

Extreme Rules was a chaotic show and tonight's Monday Night RAW will hopefully put the flagship show on track heading into SummerSlam.

The endings to some of the matches on Sunday were head-scratching, but has led to many fans wondering what is actually happening with two of Monday Night RAW's titles. The first is Apollo Crews and the United States Championship. Crews was not physically cleared to compete on Sunday so MVP declared he was the new champion via forfeit. Is MVP's reign as US Champion about to begin or will we have to wait for Apollo to return?

Also, Sasha Banks "pinned" Asuka on Sunday thanks to her best friend Bayley. The SmackDown Women's Champion hit Asuka with the title after the referee was inadvertently hit with the green mist. Bayley proceeded to take the referee's shirt and count the pin on Asuka as she and Banks stole the RAW Women's Championship. Bayley isn't an official, so she has no authority to declare Sasha Banks the winner, but how will this be sorted out tonight?

WWE Champion Drew McIntyre defeated Dolph Ziggler on Sunday, but now that he doesn't have a challenger who will step up to the "Scottish Psychopath"?

And finally, Randy Orton looks to add Big Show's name to the list of legends he has taken out as the two go one-on-one in an unsanctioned match. Can Big Show stop Orton's path of destruction or will Randy continue to go unopposed?

Here's everything that happened on the July 20 edition of Monday Night RAW.

Seth Rollins Promo

  • Rollins starts the night with a promo alongside Murphy. Commentary makes a point to say that Rey Mysterio will regain his vision.
