The June 24th, 2019 episode of WWE RAW aired live from the Angel of the Winds Arena in Everett, Washington. Here are 5 takeaways from this week’s show:
5Corbin & Evans Will Face Rollins & Lynch At Extreme Rules
Universal Champion Seth Rollins kicked off the show and was quickly joined by RAW Women’s Champion Becky Lynch. Rollins gave Corbin credit for choosing Lacey Evans as the referee last night at Stomping Grounds. Seth noted that Corbin wasn’t smart enough to realize that he has the best backup on the planet in Becky Lynch.
Lynch called Evans a plank and stated that she had nothing when it came time to fight. Baron Corbin’s music hit and Lacey Evans attacked Becky from behind. Lynch battled back and beat the hell out of Lacey in the corner of the ring. Corbin rushed the ring and Rollins connected with a Slingblade. Baron and Lacey then retreated out of the ring.
Corbin told Rollins to put on an apron and make The Man sandwich. Baron claimed that he would be Universal Champion if it wasn’t for Lacey Evans. Evans and Corbin suggested a mixed tag team match at Extreme Rules. Lynch told them that will be it and neither of them will get another chance at the PPV. Corbin added that it will be a winners take all match, with both the RAW Women’s Championship and Universal Championship on the line.
There has not been one entertaining match in either of these feuds and it is ridiculous that this is dragging on until Extreme Rules. Rumors of this match were floating around since last night and I hoped they were incorrect. Extreme Rules is in three weeks, so it already feels like a show that is going to have a build that is phoned in like Stomping Grounds. I already know I’m not interested in the main event of the PPV, and I’m also not looking forward to two more weeks of these cringeworthy segments.
