Here we covered the highlights of WWE RAW held on Monday 22 June 2020. We are only a few weeks away from witnessing another PPV event- WWE Extreme Rules. Extreme Rules top matches are already being predicted.
Followed by the last week’s Monday Night RAW, the opponent of Drew McIntyre for Extreme Rules, which is being scheduled on 19 July 2020, was revealed in the show. Not only this, but we also got some unexpected tittle change as well on RAW. The show Kicked off with the entry of McIntyre inside the ring. Drew was about to say something, but we see Dolph coming out and saying that AJ was on SmackDown, and now Dolph and Robert Robe are on RAW.
Dolph started telling how he had picked up McIntyre when he was facing the lowest point in his career, and for this reason, now, Drew owed a title shot to Dolph. Drew answered him back and asked him if he wants to have a match. Dolph didn’t speak anything after this and Drew accepted the title challenge for the WWE championship in the upcoming PPV event- WWE Extreme Rules.

Check out the WWE RAW match highlights and results held on 22nd June 2020.
1. Street Profits (c) vs. Viking Raiders – A RAW Tag Team Titles match
The first title match on RAW started, and we see Dawkins and Ivar in the ring. At first, Vikings were under the full control as Erik tagged in, and he tossed Ivar into Dawkins. He did this before Ford got tagged in the match. As the match started, Ford hit a colossal dive but failed to do so as he was caught up by a powerbomb by Erik. As we return, Profits was hitting the Viking Experience on Erik, but somehow the pin broke.
We see that before all four of them did cartwheels for some unexpected reason, it was Ford who took a big boot. Later Dawkins was moved down. Erik was now removed, and Ford then hit Ivar a From The Heavens Splash to win the match. When the match ended, all the four players hugged and showed the true spirit of a sportsperson.
