WWE RAW Results – June 20, 2022
Your announcers are Jimmy Smith, Byron Saxton, and Corey Graves.

Raw Women’s Champion Bianca Belair makes her way to the ring.
Bianca says she was looking forward to her title match against Rhea Ripley at Money in the Bank. She says she wishes she did not have to break this news to everyone, but Rhea will not be medically cleared in time to compete at Money in the Bank. When Rhea returns, I will be right here waiting and ready. Until then, the question remains who do I defend my title against at Money in the Bank? Tonight, we have five women, Alexa Bliss, Liv Morgan, Carmella, Asuka, and Becky Lynch. They will be in a Fatal Five Way Match to see who faces her at Money in the Bank.
Becky Lynch interrupts and makes her way to the ring.
Becky says there is only one contender and it is her. She still hasn’t gotten her one-on-one rematch after having the greatest women’s match in Wrestlemania history. I had the match won at Hell in a Cell. You stole it from me. I am tired of being mistreated and having to jump through hoop after hoop because after I win the match tonight, it will make winning my title back so much sweeter.
Asuka interrupts and she laughs and asks Becky if she is crying.
Becky tells Asuka if she spent less time making Simpsons meme, you would remember that your shoulders were on the mat in our last few matches.
Liv Morgan comes out and she says Becky shouldn’t just worry about Asuka because she is always ready for a fight. Liv says she is in a great mood because she has already earned her spot in Money in the Bank, something you haven’t been able to do yet. I will gladly trade that in for an opportunity to go one on one against Bianca Belair at Money in the Bank.
Carmella comes out and she says something does not add up. She knows why she is in this match but why is Liv in this match? Carmella asks who thinks we should kick this lovable loser out of the match to make it a Fatal Four Way.
Liv says she has been here and if you want to talk to her like that again, she will make sure you get a few more weeks off.
Carmella says that is some big talk for someone who got into the Money in the Bank match by riding on Alexa Bliss’ coattails.
Speaking of Alexa, she makes her way out and says that Carmella loves to name drop. Alexa asks if she should name drop the person who helped her win Money in the Bank. Alexa says that Carmella has never been successful on her own. She tells Carmella to stop being a hypocrite and messing with Liv.
Bianca stops all of the bickering and Bianca says it sounds like everyone is ready for action.

It is a long shot and if I can cash in, I can end Roman’s reign of terror and get that sweet vengeance that him and Randy desire. You have Sheamus, Drew McIntyre, and Seth Rollins.
