WWE RAW Results - June 15, 2020
Randy Orton makes his way to the ring to start the show.

Tom mentions Edge's torn triceps and the need for him to have surgery and we see a photo.

Randy says last night at Backlash he did what he said he would do. He beat Edge and he humiliated him. He wrote the final chapter in his comeback. Randy says he gave Edge closure. Randy says he knew that Edge would never be the competitor he was back in the day. All he had to do was let Randy help him, but Edge resisted. All Edge had to do was trust him. Just like he trusted Edge when Edge saved himself. He was not the Last Man Standing at Wrrestlemania. He is victorious after the GREATEST Wrestling match ever and that makes him the greatest ever. Randy says he does not need a title to prove it.

Randy says he needs to thank Edge for reigniting that fire in his gut. A fire that burns at the expense of other legends. It reminded him of what it felt like to be the Legend Killer. He wishes he could thank Edge in person. It is not because of the punt kick, but because I tore your tricep off the bone. Randy says he knew when it happened and he could have ended the match, but he wanted to make Edge suffer so he had to go home to be a father and husband. You are not here because you are in some god-foresaken hospital where doctors are trying to reattach that muscle to the bone. Randy says that he hopes that Edge will be able to climb that mountain again. Randy says he hears that Edge will be cleared to wrestle in July... 2029.

Christian makes his way to the ring.

Christian asks Randy what type of man is he to gloat like this. You are cold, you are calculated, and you are a son of a bitch. You think the redemption for Edge is over and you think his career is over. Edge has never quit before and he is not going to quit now. You don't get a say when Edge is done. Edge will get his closure on his terms, not Randy's.

Randy says he can't believe that Christian came out when he had so many things to say. This story was not about you, it was about him and Edge. It will never be about you because you are jealous of Edge. Randy says he knows what Christian wants. Randy says Christian wants one... more... match.

Christian says he is here to defend his friend.

Randy says Christian is just like Edge. Something you love was taken from you before you could say goodbye. You are not medically cleared to wrestle, but he knows a way around that. Christian versus Orton... unsanctioned. He asks Christian what does he say. The offer expires at the end of the night. If you don't accept, it proves you are nothing but a coward.

Rey Mysterio is a hero. Rey sacrificed himself for the greater good and for the future of Raw. Sadly, Rey Mysterio declined his invitation.

Dominick is part of the future and part of the greater good. Seth says he wants to help Dominick and let Rey help him. He wants Dominick to join him and fight for the greater good.

If he is not part of the solution, he is part of the problem. If that is the case, he must be sacrificed. Rey says if any of them touch Dominic, he will end them.

Seth says he heard Rey loud and clear. An eye for an eye? That is what Dominick said. Fortuniately for Dominick, you don't make the decisions for him. Dominick is an adult and he can make his own choices. Dominick can stand by his side and fight for the greater good and on the right side of history. Or, he can make the choice that you made. He can become a sacrifice as well.
