WWE RAW Results - Jun 12, 2017

WWE RAW Opener:

We begin tonight's show with a recap of what Samoa Joe did to Paul Heyman.

We are in Lafayette, Louisiana and your announcers are Michael Cole, Corey Graves, and Booker T.

Brock Lesnar's music plays and he makes his way to the ring with Paul Heyman and he does the Brock Bounce and the Lesnar Leap.

Heyman says he's here to unleash The Beast tonight. He says he showed respect to Samoa Joe last night but Joe lured him and took him out. Heyman goes on and says Joe kicked out the front door to the lair of The Beast. He put his hands on Brock's guy and now Brock has a problem. And that problem is with Samoa Joe. That problem is going to be solved by the greatest problem solver in WWE history... Brock Lesnar. Heyman says he was fooled. He thought Joe was the worst case scenario, someone to finally step up and give Lesnar a fight, someone who could go man-to-beast. Heyman says but that's not who Joe is. Heyman says Joe is the one Samoan who the rest of the Samoans want nothing to do with. Heyman says Joe is a punk.

Heyman gives Joe some props for how rough the Coquina Clutch was last week. His first thought was what happens if Joe puts the clutch on Lesnar. Heyman then realized that as a dog, as a punk... Joe will never get the hold on Lesnar because he's not man enough but if he does, Heyman can guarantee that... the music interrupts and out comes Joe marching to the ring.

Joe gets right in Lesnar's face and quickly attacks. They go at it and Lesnar turns it around. We see RAW General Manager Kurt Angle bringing security out. They hit the ring to boos. Security gets taken out. Lesnar goes right after Joe again and takes him down. The brawl continues as Angle sends the RAW locker room out to break the fight up. Joe drops Lesnar with a kick to the face. The roster pulls Joe out of the ring while the other half holds Lesnar back. Lesnar breaks free and goes after Joe. They're separated again as fans chant "this is awesome" now.

Backstage:

We are back with the latest Shattered Dreams Production from Goldust. He tells us to keep your friends close, but your enemies closer. R Truth claims they were brothers and friends. The truth is you were jealous and scared. Goldust says he got to Truth before Truth got to him. You never understood him. No one understood him. Is it because he is too bizarre? Is it because he makes you feel uncomfortable? Ignorance can be beautiful, but just like beauty, nothing lasts forever unless you are made of gold. You better buckle up buckeroo because you ain't seen nothing left. The Golden Age is back.

Backstage:

In the Arena:

Bray makes his way to the ring.

Bray says those who deny him will be judged. Those who sit in pathetic apathy will suffer their guilt. Those who dare blaspheme his name will be punished. Just like Seth Rollins. He has it all figured out. He has all the answers. Seth lives in a glass house with the blueprints of the architect blocking out the sun. It only took one dose of his truth to bring that house down. Now Seth will be picking out shards of glass from his soul for eternity due to his transgression. Due to Seth's ignorance and dependence on humanity will set the way that you will live by. If you take his name in vain, you will fall.

If you take his name in vain...

Seth Rollins makes his way to the ring.

Seth says he has to clarify something so they are on the same page. Bray cost him his match last week because he called Bray a couple of names? He can get under Bray's skin for that? Calling him a wannabe martyr and a false prophet, that was the truth. By calling him out, it forces Bray into the light. Bray prefers to hide in the shadows and attack when necessary.

Seth says that makes Bray a coward. Seth dares Bray to prove him wrong.

Bray tells Seth his pride will betray him. You are oozing arrogance all over the place. When you look at your reflection in the mirror, you see the man. Bray says he sees a man who is beneath him. You do not want this fight because his power is more than you can fathom. You have found the will to slay a king.

The lights go out and go back on. Seth is alone in the ring. The lights go out and come back on and Bray is back on the
TitanTron. Bray tells Seth to face his fear and RUN.

In the Arena:

We are back and Alexa Bliss makes her way to the ring.

Alexa says last week she defeated Bayley to retain her Women's championship. Instead of having a celebration worthy of a champion, she had to defend her title against Nia Jax. Tonight, she has no obligation to defend her title. Alexa mentions the Money in the Bank Ladder Match on Sunday, but that is on Sunday. The goddess is here to honor you with her presence.

Nia Jax is not like most girls, other than the fact she is interrupting the champion. Nia reminds Alexa that Nia said that she deserved that opportunity. Nia reminds Alexa that she promised her.

Alexa says she should have said she was thrilled to have a title match against Nia. She wanted a match for the ages that people could watch over and over on the WWE Network. That moment was stolen by Mickie James and Dana Brooke. They are the real problem.

Mickie James and Dana Brooke come out. Mickie calls Alexa a dwarf and she reminds Alexa that she is a six time champion so she has a long way to go into her territory. Mickie asks Dana if Alexa said it was unfair to get a title match. Dana says Alexa said that 'we' have a Nia Jax problem.

Alexa wants everyone to calm down. Alexa asks Nia to consider the sources. Dana is the epitome of a disgruntled worker. Mickie James is someone whose spotlight is fading by the second.

Emma's music plays and she makes her way to the ring. She tells everyone you can put the spotlight where it belongs because Emma is back. Emma says she is ready for her rightful place at the top of the women's division.

Alexa tells Nia they are proving her point. They are stealing her spotlight.

Sasha Banks makes her way to the ring.

She tells Alexa she has it all twisted. To be a champion, you need to prove you are the best day in and day out. You have a ring full of women ready to throw it down. All you want to do is come out and yap your mouth. Sasha says that she will show Alexa how a boss throws a party.

Interview With Bayley:

Corey asks Bayley what happened at Extreme Rules. Bayley says that match is to inflict pain. She says she has never been in a match or situation like that. She is not here to put bruises on people's backs, she is here to put smiles on people's faces. Corey asks how will that attitude help in the ring? Bayley says she will not defeat people with hugs, but she did not get here being someone she is not. When she goes through the curtain, they see 100% Bayley. She is not going to change who she is for a match. She will do what is best for herself.

Corey asks what does the future hold for Bayley. Bayley says everyone has been asking her. Since she started training 9 years ago, she wrote down on her first day she wanted to be the best. That has not changed. A loss does not change her mindset or her legacy. She wants to regain the Women's Title. She wants to walk back into Wrestlemania as the Raw Women's Champion. They are in Louisiana, where Wrestlemania is next year. She wants everyone to know that they can do it on their own terms.
