WWE Monday Night Raw Results and Ratings (July 19, 2021)

WWE Monday Night Raw comes from the American Airlines Center in Dallas, Texas, featuring all the fallout from the Money in the Bank pay-per-view (PPV) that went down just last night in Fort Worth. Advertised for tonight: John Cena returns to the show — he’ll actually be kicking things off — to explain his motivations for returning to confront Roman Reigns, Bobby Lashley is still WWE champion and is looking for his next title challenger, Nikki A.S.H. is the women’s Money in the Bank contract holder, and more!

The show opens with John Cena making his entrance. He cuts a massive promo as usual. He said in part “This pathetic Roman Reigns experience has gone on long enough, and he’s an arrogant, self-absorbed, overhyped, overprotected, overexposed gimmick who isn’t as over as he says he is. And that’s coming from John Cena! There’s a saying, if you’re good, you ask everyone to say you’re great, and he asks the crowd to demonstrate that.”
