WWE RAW Results - July 20, 2020
Tonight's RAW opens up with a video package on the "Eye For An Eye Match" at WWE's "The Horror Show at Extreme Rules". We cut to the standard RAW intro video.

- We're live on a slight tape delay from the WWE Performance Center in Orlando, Florida as Tom Phillips welcomes us. He's joined at ringside by Samoa Joe and Byron Saxton. They hype tonight's RAW as the developmental trainees in the crowd cheer.

- We go right to the ring and out comes Seth Rollins and Murphy. Tom gives a storyline injury update on Rey Mysterio coming out of the "Eye For An Eye" loss on Sunday, noting that he is being treated at a local medical facility and looks to be retaining his vision.

Seth mentions globe luxation. He says it means that Rey Mysterio's eye came out of its socket. Seth says he wants to be honest and he says going into the match, he knew what the stipulation entailed. Seth says it was understood that you had to remove your opponent's eye from its socket, but what happened last night will stay with him for the rest of his life. Seth says the image of Rey holding his bloody eye in his hands will stay with him forever. It was more than he expected and it made him figuratively and literally sick to his stomach.

Seth says he was asked if he regrets what happened last night. Seth says he has to ask you "do you regret what you have done to me?" This was not his decision. YOU were the ones who made him the Monday Night Messiah. You made me the person you now refer to as a monster. Do you regret what you have done to him and by proxy, what you have done to Rey and his family. Seth says Rey is the one who picked the stipulation. Actions have consequences.

What happened to Rey Mysterio last night was ugly and unfortunate. We cannot afford to dwell in the past. The beauty in all of this is that Rey Mysterio is out of sight. Rey is out of sight and Monday Night Raw is free to fulfill it's potential. The greater good of the show can happen and there is no one left to stand in the way of the greater good.
