The June 3, 2019 episode of WWE RAW aired live from the Frank Erwin Center in Austin, Texas. In addition to the takeaways below, a puppet version of Vince McMahon made a cameo during this week’s episode of Firefly Fun House.
Here are 7 takeaways from this week’s show:
7Shane McMahon Speared Roman Reigns
SmackDown superstar Roman Reigns kicked off this week’s episode of RAW to the same mixed reaction he always gets from the crowd.
SmackDown Commissioner Shane McMahon interrupted to a chorus of boos. Shane demanded a proper introduction from Mike Rome before stating that he cannot wait to shut Roman Reigns up at Super ShowDown this Friday. McMahon said that he is going to make Reigns submit for the first time in his career via the Triangle choke.
Reigns told Shane to shut up and vowed to “boom him through the mat” if he tries to apply the Triangle choke. Roman added that he was going to whip Drew McIntyre’s ass at Stomping Grounds in two weeks.
Drew McIntyre joined the party and demanded that the Texas crowd show some respect. McIntyre claimed that he was going to end Reigns at Stomping Grounds. The Revival then attacked Reigns from behind and The Usos rushed the ring for the save.
Roman Reigns & The Usos then faced McIntyre & The Revival in a 6-man tag team match. McIntyre and The Revival controlled the match early but the momentum changed when Reigns tagged in.
Roman hit McIntyre with a Superman Punch and then delivered on to Wilder on the apron. Jey Uso tagged in and climbed to the top rope but Shane shoved him to the mat. McIntyre hit Roman with a Claymore Kick as The Revival hit Jimmy with the Shatter Machine. McIntyre connected with the Claymore Kick on Jey for the pinfall victory.
After the match, The Revival hit Roman Reigns with Shatter Machine and McIntyre followed it up with another Claymore. Shane trash talked Roman for a bit and then leveled him with a Spear. Shane continued to taunt Roman before posing in the ring.
The Wild Card rule isn’t exciting when the it is the same superstars switching brands every time. Roman Reigns still playing a prominent role on RAW, while being a SmackDown superstar is also a nightmare.
