WWE RAW Results – May 6, 2019
We are in Cincinnati, Ohio and your announcers are Michael Cole, Corey Graves, and Renee Young.
There is NO CHANCE Vince McMahon is not going to start off the show.
Vince welcomes everyone and he says this is a Raw for the ages that no one will forget. It is because he is starting off Raw . . .
Roman Reigns interrupts and he makes his way to the ring.
Vince tells Roman that he will not be giving him a Superman punch tonight because he has the Cincinnati police ready. He also wants to know why Roman is here because he is assigned to Smackdown.
Roman says that he is on Smackdown, but he was on Raw for four or five years. He said he would leave Raw better than it was. Roman reminds Vince that while he was out, Vince and his family were not the authority, but the people were. Roman says that was a lie. Roman says he does not take orders from Vince or his spoiled family. Roman says he takes them from the WWE Universe.
Vince asks Roman if he thinks he can show up any time and the people will like it.
Roman says if they are going to make noise like this, he will show up every Monday.
Vince says that is not going to happen. Vince says it would open the floodgates and it would be anarchy . . .
Daniel Bryan’s music plays and he makes his way to the ring.
Vince says this is a bad dream and he wants to know what Daniel is doing.
Daniel says since the travesty at Wrestlemania when he was robbed by Kofi Kingston, he has been in solitude. When he heard that Roman was showing up on Raw, Daniel says he thought he could have an intellectual conversation.
Before we can get intellectual, WWE Champion Kofi Kingston makes his way to the ring.
Kofi says the roster shake up was a big deal, but he has issues with Daniel. You didn’t have to go to the McMahons if you had issues with what happened at Wrestlemania because you could have come to him since he is the WWE Champion.
Daniel says Kofi is an undeserving champion. You never should have gotten a title shot. Your win was a fluke. Do you know why your 11 year journey was so hard. A pancake throwing novelty act never should have gotten there in the first place.
Kofi says he got there and he is the champion. He says that Daniel can’t do a think about it.
Vince suggests a great idea. What if he allowed three members of Smackdown to come to Raw on a given occasion. What if three members of Raw went to Smackdown. We would have no idea what would happen.
Kofi asks if this was Vince’s idea the whole time. Kofi says he saw Roman on social media and with E and Woods on the mend and he had nothing to do on Monday, why not show up to Raw on Monday.
Daniel says there is nothing about Raw that is fun. Daniel says he is not here for fun. He came here for a rematch for his WWE Championship. Daniel threatens to punch Kofi in the face.
Drew McIntyre appears on the stage and says if Vince doesn’t have things under control and if no one else in the back has a set to take care of this, it is up to Drew McIntyre. Drew says this is not Smackdown presents Raw. Drew says Kofi and Daniel better feel lucky he cares more about the egomaniac in the ring than either of you. Drew says that Vince said that the rules don’t apply to you. You are told not to show up and you show up. You got drafted from Raw to Smackdown so you could duck Drew McIntyre. You think it is okay to punch your boss in your face. You are an egomaniac and he will Claymore your arse back down to Earth.
Roman says it didn’t work out for you at Wrestlemania so why not try it tonight.
Vince suggests that we have a Wrestlemania rematch tonight? What if we had another Wrestlemania rematch tonight and this one would be for the WWE Championship.
Before we can see the brilliance of Vince’s ideas, AJ Styles interrupts and he makes his way to the stage and then to the ring.
We go to commercial.
We are back and Vince is in the ring with AJ Styles and he wants to know what is up.
AJ asks Vince what is he doing. He finally gets to Raw and the next thing he knows is you have Smackdown wrestlers on Raw.
Vince says there is a reason for it and it is Wild Card Rule and he just came up with it.
AJ says it is real convenient. AJ says he spent years making Smackdown the House that AJ Styles Built. Then he gets to Raw and has a shot at the Universal Championship, but you bring over Seth Rollins’ best friend and partner in crime, Roman Reigns. Is that how this Wild Card thing is going to work? Maybe AJ Styles goes to Smackdown tomorrow and brings a couple of his friends to Raw.
Vince says the Wild Card Rule is that three members of Raw may be invited to Smackdown and three members of Smackdown may be invited to Raw.
Seth Rollins interrupts.
Seth says he gives AJ the benefit of the doubt but then he gets sucker punched. Seth says Smackdown was fine before you got there and fine since you left. Seth says this is not your show, it is Monday Night Rollins.
AJ says he knows exactly where he is and he knows exactly what he did to Seth last week. AJ says he tried to shake your hand, but you threw that Universal Championship in his face. Then AJ tried to walk away and you kept running your mouth. If you are not going to treat him like a man, he will be the man who kicks your ass. AJ says he did not just put you through a table, he put you through a table with a Phenomenal Forearm. It won’t be any different, other than standing over you as the Universal Champion after a Phenomenal Forearm.
Vince says it looks like you want to compete, but it won’t be one on one. It will be you two teaming up and there will be a tag team in the back who will face him.

What do you got? Let’s be fair. Sami says he saw the whole thing go down and you thought it was great. Sami says he liked it too. The difference between you liking and him liking is that after the first few hours are gone, you are still you. You have to live with the miserable person you see in the mirror.
