WWE RAW Results – May 24 – We’re live from the WWE ThunderDome at the Yuengling Center in Tampa, Florida. MVP is in the ring and he introduces Bobby Lashley. The WWE champion makes his way to the ring and he is joined by a bevy of females.
We take a look at what happened last week on Raw.
Porter asks for a round of applause for Bobby Lashley. He says that in addition to the champion being here, the WWE is leaving the Thunderdome in July so you can see Bobby Lashley in person. Porter wants to talk about the dark cloud known as Drew McIntyre. He asks Lashley for his thoughts. Lashley says he beat Drew at Wrestlemania and then he beat Drew and Strowman at Backlash so it is a no go for Drew. Porter says that since Kofi was a former champion, he thought he could step into the ring with the champion and then the dark cloud showed up again… Drew’s music plays and he comes out.
Drew says we all knew that I would be coming out because your business is my business and my business is getting back the WWE Championship. Drew says if it wasn’t for Porter, he would have won at Wrestlemania. if it wasn’t for Braun, I would have won at Backlash. You want to prove once and for all that you are the number one star on Raw. Maybe you know that you don’t quite measure up to Drew McIntyre. Maybe the All Mighty doesn’t have the balls. Drew asks the ladies out for this evening. Drew says that Kofi beat Lashley.
Bobby says that Kofi didn’t beat him but you hit me with Porter’s cane for Kofi to win. Drew says he is hearing excuses.
The New Day’s music plays and Kofi KIngston comes out with Xavier Woods. Kofi says they are making some incredible points in the ring, but Kofi wants to remind everyone that he pinned the WWE Champion. Kofi says they’re making some good points and he knows things move fast out here, but he doesn’t want them to forget that he pinned Lashley last week. He reminds us again. Kofi and Woods hit the ring now as the tension picks up. Kofi mentions how he and the fans want Drew to step aside as he did what Drew couldn’t do in months, pin Lashley. Out comes Adam Pearce to interrupt from the stage. Pearce has an easy solution. He announces Kofi vs. Drew for tonight with the winner challenging Lashley at Hell In a Cell.
