WWE 'Monday Night RAW' Results: Randy Orton Challenges Christian to an Unsanctioned Match Tonight

It's the night after the Backlash pay-per-view and Monday Night RAW is looking to build toward Extreme Rules and Summer Slam.

Tonight, Randy Orton will start tonight's show after winning the "greatest wrestling match ever" bout on Sunday against Edge. Orton can easily gloat now that he's defeated his nemesis, but what condition is "The Viper" in and what's next for him and Edge? With reports of Edge's injury stemming from Sunday's match, will we not see the "Rated R Superstar" for awhile?

Asuka and Nia Jax fought to a double count out on Sunday, which helped keep the RAW Women's Championship on the "Empress of Tomorrow." Not looking to take a defense like that easily, Asuka and Nia Jax will go one-on-one again tonight for the top women's title on RAW.

Can Asuka continue her recent string of domination against Nia Jax, especially with Charlotte Flair waiting in the wings, or can Jax end Asuka's reign and start her own?

WWE Champion Drew McIntyre defeated Bobby Lashley on Sunday, but it wasn't easy. Lana inserted herself into the match distracting Lashley enough for Drew to get the victory. Lashley still has beef with McIntyre, but he and his new manager MVP will take on the champ with R-Truth in a tag team match. Can Lashley get back on the winning side tonight?

Seth Rollins has invited Rey and Dominik Mysterio to tonight's Monday Night RAW. Both have accepted, but what will happen to the master of the 619? Will Rollins and his disciples continue their reign of terror on RAW or can both Mysterios take Seth down a peg?

A lot is expected to go down on the June 15 episode of Monday Night RAW. Here's everything that happened.

Randy Orton Promo

  • Orton begins the night and says that he knew that he would take out Edge when he came back at the Royal Rumble.
  • He thanks Edge for reigniting the spark of the "legend killer." He says he wishes Edge was here tonight to tell him thanks face-to-face, but he injured Edge. He had to send Edge back home to his family and now Edge has another mountain to climb and he'll see him in another nine years.
  • Christian comes out and calls Randy Orton a "son of a b---h." He says that Edge will never quit and when that time comes Edge will get his closure.
  • Randy Orton says that Christian has no business coming down to the ring and he's just jealous of his best friend, Edge. Orton says that he sees the look in Christian's eye and he wants one more match. Christian denies it, but Orton cuts him off and says that Christian had his career taken away. He knows that he's not medically cleared, so Orton challenges Christian to an unsanctioned match tonight. The offer expires by the end of the night.
  • Orton says that if Christian doesn't accept, that he'll prove he's a coward before he leaves.
