3 Interesting botches you missed this week on Monday Night Raw (July 15th, 2019)
Extreme Rules fallout was the main topic of conversation this week on Monday Night Raw as Brock Lesnar's upcoming SummerSlam opponent dominated the show. The 10-man Battle Royal determined that Lesnar would be forced to put his title on the line against former Champion Seth Rollins.
It was also Paul Heyman's first show in charge and the changes were obvious throughout Raw, even though the company still defaulted back to the usual 2 out of 3 falls match that takes place every week to avoid the company having to promote wrestling in the ad break.
SummerSlam is now officially on the horizon but as the stakes rise in the wrestling world, many stars have stepped up their game but a few who are in danger of being left behind.
#3. 2 out of 3 Falls
Ricochet finally found some friends in the form of The Usos this week on Raw and the trio took on The Revival and Bobby Roode in a 2 out of 3 Falls match. Throughout the match, there were a number of botches that included Ricochet going for a kick but hitting the ropes instead and The Revival managing to mess up their signature move.
Somehow, Scott Dawson went for The Shatter Machine but as he lifted Jimmy Uso, Dash Wilder slid out of the ring and didn't link up with his partner. Impressively, the move turned into a flapjack and that was enough to pick up a fall. Wilder and Dawson then exchanged words after the move which made it clear that something had gone wrong.
Later in the match, Bobby Roode was looking for The Glorious DDT, but as Ricochet countered looking for the pin he managed to roll through and kick the referee in the face. The referee continued like a true professional, but there was definite contact.
