WWE Monday Night RAW Live Results: Matches Set for Stomping Grounds Pay-Per-View

It's the final Monday Night RAW before the Stomping Grounds pay-per-view this Sunday, and the superstars of RAW will be building toward their individual matches tonight.

The main storyline of Monday Night RAW has revolved around Seth Rollins' reign as Universal Champion. Baron Corbin became the number one contender for the top title before Super Showdown, but lost his match against Rollins at the Saudi Arabia show.

However, Corbin believes the referee cost him the match and politicked his way into another title shot at Stomping Grounds. But it won't be as easy as their last match, because Corbin will have a special guest referee of his choosing. While Sami Zayn has expressed interest in being chosen, Corbin will make the formal announcement tonight. With a locker room full of heels, it'll be interesting to see who will be the impartial official for this Sunday.

In the midcard, the number one contender for Samoa Joe's US Championship will be decided tonight in a Fatal Five-Way match. Braun Strowman, The Miz, Ricochet, Bobby Lashley and Cesaro will all vie for the opportunity at Joe's title this Sunday at Stomping Grounds. With Joe being a heel, it's logical to have either Strowman, Miz or Ricochet win tonight to have that classic heel/face dynamic, but perhaps WWE will swerve the fans. Either way, it should be an entertaining match.

Daniel Bryan is scheduled to make an appearance on tonight's RAW as part of the "wild card rule." The official WWE.com preview says Bryan will arrive on RAW not by choice, so it's interesting to see what he will have to say. He is one half of the SmackDown Tag Team Champions, so maybe he'll have a showdown with a RAW tag team tonight. Bryan and Rowan did take the titles off of The Usos before Jimmy and Jey were shipped to RAW in the Superstar Shake Up so they can possibly renew their rivalry.

Expect a lot of developments tonight on Monday Night RAW as we build towards Stomping Grounds. Here's everything that happened on the June 17 episode of RAW.
