Raw June 22, 2020
Drew McIntyre makes his appearance in the ring to welcome us tonight. And he begins by saying that this is a night is a championship edition and reminds us of what happened a week ago, but now he wants to look into the future, but Dolph Ziggler makes his appearance on Raw.
Ziggler tells McIntyre and explains that he and Robert Rodde are both on Raw as a result of AJ Styles' transfer to SmackDown.
Ziggler goes straight to the point and reminds McIntyre that he is living a story of redemption, having been defeated, but that thanks to him, he was able to return and be a dominant guy in WWE, and that they were both dominant champions on Raw. So Ziggler tells him he just wants something "simple": a starting opportunity for the WWE Championship at Extreme Rules.
McIntyre taunts Ziggler's and Roode's 2-for-1 transfer. McIntyre mocks Ziggler and tells him that while they have shared many stories, he does not know what the "Scottish Psychopath" is capable of. After pondering it, McIntyre says that "it is official" and accepts Ziggler's challenge.
Dolph Ziggler: it is time that I know what I deserve so much !!
Hashish! So who beat him to be # 1 contender? I only saw him losing to Otis 😅

Nia Jax appears and with a chair in hand, enters the ring and sits in the middle.
Nia Jax refers to Charlotte getting a starting opportunity out of nowhere, and then complains about the way she lost both of her opportunities against Asuka.
R-Truth appears out of nowhere. Then, she tells Nia Jax that she is confused and that he has a fight against "ninja leader" Akira Tozawa, unless Jax is the "true Akira Tozawa".
Jax gets upset and Truth asks who he is, and Tozawa appears and a group of ninjas go after Truth and he escapes.
Jax takes the microphone again and Charlotte Flair appears, and asks him what is wrong, after missing two starting opportunities, he still dares to claim something.
Jax tells her that she has built her legacy the easy way, thanks to her father, but that she has been dominated by her, and if anyone is going to take the crown, it will be Nia Jax. Charlotte can't take it anymore and they go to the blows, until referees arrive to separate them.
Behind the scenes, The Street Profits and The Viking Raiders, who still behave like friends and call themselves Viking Profits. However, Angelo Dawkins and Ivar issue their respective warnings to their rivals, saying that the friendship will end in the ring.
► 1- Raw Tag Team Championship: The Street Profits vs. The Viking Raiders
Dawkins and Ivar initiate the action, and the Viking sends his rival against the corner. Eric takes over and with one big blow continues the punishment and achieves a count of two.
Ford is now the one who enters for the champions and with a dropkick, he takes Eric out of the ring. Then, Ford wanted to launch butt, but Eric receives it and throws it against his partner and celebrates with Ivar.
Upon returning from the commercial, Ivar manages to punish Ford. Relay for Eric, who seeks to combine with his partner, but this fails an onslaught, as Ford dodges.
Relay for Dawkins, who punishes Eric and then relinquishes the relay to apply the Viking Experience and score two on Eric. Ivar interrupts coverage.
Now it is the Vikings' turn, and after Dawkins is sent to the canvas, Ivar was looking to steal a page from the champions and he launches, but fails.
Ivar is on the canvas, Eric was looking to interfere, but Dawkins applies a spear to it. Montez Ford launches with Frog Splash and achieves a count of three over Ivar.
The Street Profits are the victors in a short, but entertaining encounter. They have finally concluded their rivalry and did so in a friendly way. The four make their Viking Profits signal in the ring.
Street Profits retain the #WWERaw Tag Team Championship against the Viking Raiders.
This is what the pair division needs. Entertaining and frenetic combat.
The respect between both teams is wonderful.

However, after the losers leave, Andrade and Ángel Garza appear out of nowhere and attack the champions, and it seems they want their championships.
Behind the scenes, Seth Rollins, who is with his disciples, has a message for Rey Mysterio, who will give it after the commercial break.
Rollins speaks, and says that he did not choose to be the Monday Night Messiah, just as Mysterio did not choose to be a sacrifice. However, Mysterio must understand that sacrifice is for a better good and should not be challenged. Rollins says that whatever happens to him and his son will be his fault. Highlight that the common good will come and that there is nothing that King can do about it.
Charlotte Flair is interviewed and looks sore; however, she says it is fine for her scheduled fight against Asuka.
Seconds later, Andrade, Garza, and Zelina Vega are interviewed, and after Garza flirts with Charly Caruso, Zelina says that her clients are one force now and that they will take what they deserve, gold.
► 2- Raw Tag Team Championship: Asuka vs. Charlotte Flair
At the beginning of the actions, Asuka is cornered by the challenger and attacked with several kicks. Asuka recovers and looks for a hip, but fails and gets caught on the ropes.
Now the action takes place outside the ring, and Asuka takes control and kicks Charlotte. However, when she picks up momentum for a second, Charlotte dodges and Asuka falls to the ground.
Charlotte Flair returns her to the ring and achieves a count of two. The challenger goes for a moonsault, but fails. Asuka takes advantage of the situation, but also fails, and receives a chipper and then thrown at the corner.
Returning from the commercial, Nia Jax is watching the action behind the scenes, while in the ring, Flair connects a Big Boot that sends Asuka to the mat.
Asuka manages to apply the Asuka lock and Charlotte seeks to reverse and reaches the ropes. Moments later, they both rejoin, and Asuka connects one Spear and achieves a count of two.
Asuka goes by a lever to the arm, Charlotte reverses it with a powerbomb; however, when making the cover, Asuka reverses the situation and manages to apply the Asuka Lock. Seconds later, Charlotte gives no more and gives up.
Asuka is the winner in a good fight, perhaps conditioned by Charlotte's injured arm. Another successful defense of the Empress of Tomorrow.

Then, he refers to what happened last Monday when Orton referred to himself as the best fighter in history.

Rey Mysterio and his son are in the ring and shows how his son has grown, and despite the fears he had a week ago, he tells him that he is proud of him for having circumvented a three-on-one situation like the one he went through.
However, he tells her that he worried his mom, and says that Seth Rollins tried to blind him, and he accepts it; However, she tells Dominik that she is still her son and that she will always be her child, no matter what happens. Then he says that just as Dominik fought for him, Rey will now fight for him and that he needs to do these things on his own.
Dominik says that he will not go anywhere and that as a family they will be united and that they will fight together.
Seth Rollins appears and says he will make Rey see how he sacrifices his son. Rollins says that everything is the work of prophecy and destiny and that both are in the same place and that two eyes are better than one.
Then, he kneels down and his disciples appear behind him, but Humberto Carrillo and Aleister Black also appear and attack them from behind. Mysterio and Dominik also join the action.
The good guys have the advantage and Mysterio and Dominik were looking to apply the same punishment to Rollins as Rollter did to Mysterio. Black seeks to prevent it, but ultimately, Murphy and Theory are the ones who save their mentor.
Now, after taking over Black and Carrillo, Rollins takes Mysterio and the disciples sought to punish Dominik, until Carrillo arrives armed with a chair, just as Black and the rude men retreat.
For a moment I thought Dominik was going to betray Rey, it would have been like Rollins betraying Shield#WWERaw
