WWE Monday Night RAW Live Results: Roman Reigns and Samoa Joe to Meet in the Ring Again

We're less than two weeks away from this year's SummerSlam and WWE is ramping things up with a ton of matches already confirmed for tonight's Monday Night RAW.

According to the official WWE site, Seth Rollins will take on Dolph Ziggler. The WWE Universe were surprised when Ziggler took out Shawn Michaels with a Superkick on last week's SmackDown Live and now Rollins looks to take it to "The Show Off" on Monday. Rollins, who is set to take on Brock Lesnar for the Universal Championship, will use this as a test and warmup for the big match.

Roman Reigns is scheduled to appear on Monday Night RAW for a "Samoan Summit" with Samoa Joe. The two have traded verbal barbs and fists in recent weeks, and tonight will look to continue the formation of this story and feud. This could be a possible matchup for SummerSlam.

In the women's division, RAW Women's Champion Becky Lynch is set to take on Alexa Bliss. Becky and her SummerSlam opponent, Natalya brought last week's A Moment of Bliss to a screeching halt after the two began brawling on the stage. Lynch looks to use Alexa as a warm up, but with Nikki Cross in Bliss' corner will she be able to overcome the odds?

Here's everything that happened on the July 29 episode of Monday Night RAW.

R-Truth and Carmella vs Drake Maverick and Renee Michelle

  • A video package hyping up the 24/7 Championship is played before the match.
  • Truth wins via pinfall after a Flatliner
  • The finish was set up when Renee Michelle broke up the pin and Drake told her to get back into the corner, which allowed for Carmella to slap him and Truth to hit his finisher.
  • After the match, the lumberjacks all hop onto Truth. The referee counts the pin and Mike Kannellis escapes the pile with the 24/7 Championship.
  • Backstage, Mike runs away from the others and locks himself in a room. Maria clears out the other competitors and she demands he opens up. Mike eventually lets her in after she threatens to "kick him in the vagina."

Gauntlet Match (Rey Mysterio/Cesaro/Andrade/Ricochet/Sami Zayn)

  • Winner will become number one contender for the US Championship
  • Rey Mysterio and Cesaro start. Rey pins Cesaro after a 619 into a Frog Splash.
  • Sami Zayn is the next competitor in. Before the match is restarted, he starts to beat on Mysterio. When the two are separated, Zayn goes for a Helluva Kick but misses, leading to Rey rolling up Sami for the pin. An irate Sami goes after Rey, but the ref is able to get him out.
  • Andrade is the next competitor. Andrade pins Mysterio after a Hammerlock DDT. After the pin, Andrade rips Rey's mask off.
  • Ricochet is the final competitor. He comes in and save Mysterio before the bell. Ricochet pins Andrade after a 630.
  • After the win, Ricochet reflects on defeating Samoa Joe for the US Championship and how he made a believer out of the WWE Universe. And he'll do it again when he defeat AJ Styles at SummerSlam.


  • Mike tells Maria that she can finally be proud of him. He says he won the title for both of them. Maria tells Mike to get on his back and calls a referee over so their unborn child will have one champion parent. Mike gets on the ground and Maria pins him to become the new 24/7 Champion. Maria leaves the room and rubs it in the other superstars face. She asks Titus (the first 24/7 Champion) what he would do to get it back. She struts backstage knowing no one will wrestle/pin her.

Moment of Bliss

  • Alexa Bliss praises Maria for becoming 24/7 Champion. Bliss restates what Steve Austin said at the end of RAW Reunion that they are all family. She does denounce Dolph Ziggler's actions against Shawn Michaels last week.
  • Bliss shows footage of Becky Lynch from earlier in the day attacking Fit Finley and Natalya. Finley was trying to teach Nattie how to counter the Dis-Arm-Her. Becky calls Fit a traitor and walks away. Alexa says that when she takes on Becky tonight, she'll take her down a few pegs.
  • Becky shows up on the titantron and tells Alexa that no one will help her when she fights her tonight. She also tells Nikki that she should have some celtic pride and stop being Alexa's coffee table.

Street Profits Backstage Segment

  • Ford and Dawkins do their recap. Ford says he can't believe that Maria is the new 24/7 Champion. Dawkins asks why and Ford explains that because she's pregnant no one is going to pin her. Dawkins starts to seemingly fawn over the pregnant Maria when Ford asks him if he's the baby's daddy. Dawkins tells him not to play like that when Seth Rollins shows up to chat it up with the Street Profits before his match with Dolph Ziggler.

  • Maria Kannellis is taking photos with the 24/7 Championship backstage when she runs into Braun Strowman. She starts to berate him about enjoying the process of making a baby but wouldn't be able to handle a pregnancy and just runs him down.

Seth Rollins vs Dolph Ziggler
