WWE 'Monday Night RAW' Results: Seth Rollins to Host Rey Mysterio Retirement Ceremony

After the craziness that was last week's Friday Night SmackDown, how will WWE's flagship show Monday Night RAW react?

The big story on tonight's Monday Night RAW is a scheduled retirement ceremony for Rey Mysterio. After Seth Rollins assaulted Mysterio on the steel steps two weeks ago, the "Monday Night Messiah" is hosting Rey's retirement ceremony tonight. But will this ceremony go as advertised?

Rollins has a scheduled match against Aleister Black tonight, so we could see the former NXT Champion interrupting the ceremony, but will we see the return of Rey Mysterio? WWE fans will have to wait and see.

RAW Women's Champion Asuka will take on Charlotte in a champion vs champion showdown tonight. Charlotte has defeated Asuka on multiple occasions in their careers, while "The Empress of Tomorrow" has yet to take down "The Queen" could tonight be the night?

Asuka will take on Nia Jax at the Backlash pay-per-view, and Charlotte has a triple threat match against Rhea Ripley and Io Shirai at NXT Takeover: In Your House this weekend so both women could be looking over their shoulders.

New US Champion Apollo Crews is looking to give other wrestlers an opportunity the same way he was tonight as he lets anyone challenge him for the title tonight. Unlike the open challenge that is normal for the US Champion, Crews has an opponent in mind for his first defense.

The Street Profits and The Viking Raiders will go head-to-head in another non-wrestling competition. After basketball, axe throwing and golf, the two tag teams will now face off in a game of bowling. Can the Viking Raiders pull even with The Street Profits in their own series of games?

WWE Champion Drew McIntyre is on a collision course with Bobby Lashley and after their pull-apart brawl last week, tonight may see another chapter in this fresh feud.

McIntyre will take on Lashley's manager MVP tonight as Drew looks to send a message to Bobby.

Here's everything that happened on the June 1 episode of Monday Night RAW.
