WWE Monday Night RAW #1469
Ort: American Airlines Center in Dallas, Texas, USA
First broadcast: July 19, 2021
So “Money in the Bank” is history and an eventful show took place including the return of John Cena! The latter also opens today’s edition. During the Smackdown episode the week before, we also celebrated the return of the fans to the shows. Cena greets the audience in the hall and receives a loud reception. After a warm greeting, the question arises, why is he back again? The simple answer is the fans and also a certain Roman Reigns. John is on the hunt and wants to win the Universal Championship. Fortunately, there will soon be a certain event called “SummerSlam”. Two reasons led Cena to challenge Reigns. First, track number 17 should be here and second, “Reigns is an A ** hole”. It is time for someone to bring the “Tribal Chief” back down to earth and there is no one better for it than the “Dr. of Thuganomics “. With the announcement that it will also appear on Smackdown, everything is ready for RAW output. Riddle’s music will also play. He jumps into the ring and greets the 16-time WWE Champion with a very long and intense “BRO”. After the break, the first match of the evening starts.
WWE Champion Bobby Lashley successfully defended his title against Kofi Kingston last year. Tonight there is an “Open Challenge” from the “All Mighty”. In addition, Charlotte Flair celebrates her title win in a “Championship Coronation”.
6 Man Tag Team Match
The Viking Raiders (Erik & Ivar) and Riddle won against John Morrison and the RAW Tag Team Champions AJ Styles & Omos (w / The Miz) via pin to Morrison by Erik after the Viking Experience.

Three weeks ago there was a “strap match” between Jaxson Ryker and Elias, which Ryker won. An intense Ryker now looks into the camera and promises us an even bigger beating for Elias after the commercial break.
Elias is already in the ring and tunes in for a musical performance. However, he is very quickly interrupted by Ryker. He doesn’t want to wait any longer and beat Elias with a few instruments.
Symphony of Destruction Match
Jaxson Ryker won against Elias via pin after a superplex out through two tables.
Match time: 12:45
Adam Pearce, Sonya Deville and Mansoor discuss Mansoor’s plan with Mustafa Ali in a tag team match backstage. Ali comes now and does not immediately agree with this plan. However, Ali lets himself go and accepts this unique partnership. Suddenly Sheamus shows up and he can hardly believe that he has to face Humberto Carrillo again today, although the Irishman already defeated him last week. Deville and Pearce refuse to hear of the excuses and demand a fair match from Sheamus later.
The music of the new RAW Women’s Champion Charlotte Flair sounds. The “Queen” makes her way into the ring and grabs a microphone. Charlotte says that she is very proud to stand in front of the fans as a champion. After all, we’ve all waited a very long time to see her again with that title. Charlotte talks about Ripley and says that she never had a chance. Although you can learn a few dirty moves from the “Queen”, in the end no one comes close to the original. Charlotte even goes as far as claiming that she can defeat Rhea Ripley anytime, anywhere. Ripley has heard enough about The Queen and comes out. She doesn’t look very happy and immediately presents a challenge. After all, Charlotte can defeat her at any time. Flair has absolutely no interest and refuses. Adam Pearce and Sonya Deville interrupt the “Coronation”. The two of them find the idea of a championship match attractive and they are now making it official! Charlotte Flair will defend her RAW Women’s Championship against Rhea Ripley. The latter is very happy with this announcement and looks to Pearce and Deville with satisfaction. Flair takes advantage of this fact with an attack on Ripley’s knee. Then Charlotte leaves the ring and looks at her work with satisfaction. Rhea seems to have some trouble getting up, but the match is fixed.
We see a few highlights of the Women’s Money in the Bank ladder match.
A new edition of “Alexas Playground” will follow later in the evening. Bliss promises us a very special guest.

After the match, Baszler makes her displeasure with Reginald clear and reminds Jax of the times without “Regi”. The two were invincible and dominated the Tag Team Division. Jax hugs Reginald and wants to comfort him. But suddenly Nia grabs Reginald and gives him a headbutt! Baszler and Jax then hug each other and leave a sad Reginald lying on the floor. Suddenly the 24/7 champion Akira Tozawa runs into the ring. He is followed by all the superstars. In the ring, however, a nimble Reginald awaits him, who pins Tozawa and wins the title! -> title change‼ Reginald is very happy. But he is aware of the dangers of the 24/7 championship. The other superstars want to attack the new champion immediately, but Reginald uses the ring stairs to jump over the pile of superstars and save himself first.

We see highlights from the dominant performance of the WWE Champion at “Money in the Bank”. Tonight there will be an “Open Challenge” of the “All Mighty”.
Bobby Lashley’s music is playing and it’s time for the Open Challenge. Lashley grabs a microphone and reminds us of the destruction of Kofi Kingston last night. MVP also underlines the strong performance of the “All Mighty” WWE Champion. There have been too many distractions in the past few weeks and rumors that Lashley had gone “soft” couldn’t be dismissed. MVP admits, however, that it is most to blame. So it should be said that these parties, women and champagne are a thing of the past. Nobody on this roster is able to beat the “All Mighty” and Lashley will hold onto that title for a very long time. It is time for today’s opponent. Who wants to accept the Open Challenge? Suddenly Keith Lee’s music starts playing! This has not been seen on RAW for a long time and comes out to great cheers to face the WWE Champion. Lashley seems surprised but still motivated and focused, while Lee comes into the ring confidently. After the interruption, there will be a match between the two superstars.

After the match, Bobby Lashley celebrates another dominant performance. But there is no end to the surprises today. Goldberg’s music can be heard! The fans in the hall are freaking out and now the WWE Champion also looks a bit impressed. Goldberg gets in the ring and has an intense star down with Lashley. We have probably found the next challenger for the “All Mighty”.
After the interruption, Kevin Patrick wants to get an opinion from Lashley. MVP takes the answer and is disgusted by Goldberg’s disrespect. Therefore, the two will not appreciate this answer.
In the ring are Jinder Mahal, Shanky and Veer. Mahal has a microphone and a reason to celebrate too. It’s his birthday and he’s celebrating this with a few videos. We see highlights from the last few weeks of this feud and the destruction of Mahal’s handsome motorcycle. But Karma struck McIntyre last night. At the leader match, Shanky, Veer and Mahal attacked the Scot and cost him a chance at the coveted suitcase. Next, however, the birthday of Jinder Mahal is to be celebrated. Shanky will serenade on this. The deposit is quickly disturbed by Drew McIntyre. This beats the singer to the line and thread with a chair. Mahal and Veer were able to get to safety and watch as the Scot brings another chair into the ring and continues to hit Shanky. The spectators in the hall count the hits and stop at 20 hits! Then Drew looks in the direction of the Mahal and with an angry McIntyre the segment comes to an end.
We see a video that sheds light on NXT Champion Karrion Kross. Then the music from Kross can be heard. This makes his way into the ring without Scarlett.
(Non-Title) Singles Match

Match time: 01:41
-Hardy had both feet on the ring ropes at the pin.
So Kross loses his first match on RAW. After the match, Kevin Patrick comes into the ring and wants to know how Kross feels after this defeat. Kross underscores the fact that Hardy has just made the biggest mistake of his life.
It’s time for “Alexa’s Playground”. Alexa welcomes us to a very special edition and introduces us to the special guest: Lilly! On her last appearance Lilly caused a lot of problems and therefore she needed a break. But now she’s back and the two of them will have a lot of fun. However, Eva Marie and Doudrop interrupt the playground. While Alexa and Doudrop greet each other in a friendly manner, Bliss and Marie don’t really like each other. Alexa indicates that Eva cannot cope on her own and that she could not win a match without Doudrop. Marie no longer wants to listen to the whole thing and wants to disappear again with Doudrop. On the way out, Eva stumbles and falls to the ground in front of Lilly. With an evil laugh from Alexa, the two women disappear and the segment comes to an end.
Next week the Viking Raiders will have another chance to win the RAW Tag Team Championships. You will meet AJ Styles and Omos.
