WWE Monday Night RAW Live Results: Extreme Rules Go-Home Show to Prep Superstars for Sunday

It's the go-home show before Extreme Rules this Sunday, and the WWE is setting the stage for some potentially great matchups.

The first confirmed match for tonight is a mixed tag match between Seth Rollins and Becky Lynch versus Andrade and Zelina Vega from SmackDown Live. Rollins and Lynch are getting ready for their "winner takes all" match this Sunday against Baron Corbin and Lacey Evans.

After dispatching of Mike and Maria Kannellis last week, the WWE's power couple looks to continue their momentum heading into their high-stakes match on Sunday.

Another match confirmed tonight is the tag match between Shane McMahon, Drew McIntyre and Roman Reigns and a partner of Shane's choosing. This Sunday, Shane and Drew are taking on Roman and a returning Undertaker so it'll be interesting to see who will Roman be forced to team with on Monday night.

Rey Mysterio is making his return from injury tonight. After relinquishing the U.S. Championship to Samoa Joe a few weeks ago fans will want to know more about his next step on RAW. Will he try and get the U.S. Championship back off of Ricochet? Or will he look to capture something more?

AJ Styles shocked the WWE Universe by turning heel on Ricochet after their great match for the U.S. Championship last week. Aligning himself with Karl Anderson and Luke Gallows to reform The Club also means the faction will now look to run the show and take out anyone in their path.

Fans will also want to tune in to see how Monday Night RAW is changed with Paul Heyman at the helm. Last week we saw signs of change with Braun Strowman and Bobby Lashley having an explosive opening segment.

Will the momentum from last week's show continue tonight as we head to Extreme Rules? Here's everything that happened on the July 8 episode of Monday Night RAW.
