Here are your quick and dirty, editorial-free WWE Raw results for July 6, 2015. The show was headlined by John Cena vs. Cesaro in a rematch for the United States Championship, and Brock Lesnar destroying a Cadillac with fire axes. No, really.
Be back here tomorrow for the full Best and Worst of Raw column.
WWE Raw Results:
– The show opened with a promo from Paul Heyman (and Brock Lesnar) saying Lesnar would start his revenge on Seth Rollins later in the night.
1. The Big Show defeated Ryback. Big Show won by disqualification when The Miz attacked him. The match was built around Miz goading Show and Ryback into hurting each other so he’d have a better chance in their triple threat match at Battleground. After the match, Show and Ryback beat up Miz. Ryback hit Show with a Meathook clothesline to end the confrontation.
2. Brie Bella defeated Paige. Alicia Fox distracted Paige, allowing Brie to hit a facebuster for the win. After the match, Alicia and the Bellas continued the attack.
3. Sheamus defeated Roman Reigns. Bray Wyatt’s entrance and graphics interrupted Reigns, who left the ring to attack Wyatt. It turned out not to be the real Wyatt, and a video of Bray on the TitanTron distracted Roman long enough for him to be counted out. After the match, Randy Orton attacked Sheamus and gave him an RKO.
– Rusev and Summer Rae cut a promo insulting Dolph Ziggler and Lana. Ziggler and Lana responded and made out in front of them. Rusev attacked Ziggler with a crutch and revealed that his broken ankle is healed. Rusev continued to hurt Ziggler, and eventually Ziggler was taken out on a stretcher.
4. Dean Ambrose defeated Bo Dallas. Ambrose pinned Bo after Dirty Deeds.
5. King Barrett defeated King What’s Up. Barrett won with the Bullhammer Elbow.
– Seth Rollins (with J&J Security, all wielding sticks) called out Brock Lesnar. Lesnar responded by using two fire axes to destroy J&J Security’s Cadillac. When they tried to stop him, Lesnar broke Noble’s arm and suplexed Mercury into the car’s windshield. Lesnar chased after Rollins, who ran away and left the building.
6. The New Day defeated The Lucha Dragons. Big E pinned Sin Cara after a Big Ending/jumping DDT (or whatever that’s supposed to be) combination. The Prime Time Players were on commentary.
7. United States Championship Match: John Cena (c) defeated Cesaro. Kevin Owens answered Cena’s open challenge, but Cesaro interrupted and said he deserved the shot. Cesaro and Cena battled back and forth until Cena was able to hit an Attitude Adjustment off the second rope to get the pin. After the match, Kevin Owens tried to attack Cena, but Cena fought him off.
