WWE Monday Night Raw comes waltzing back into our lives tonight (June 21, 2021) from the ThunderDome at Yuengling Center in Tampa, Florida, featuring all the fallout from the Hell in a Cell pay-per-view (PPV) that went down just last night in the very same venue.
Advertised for tonight: Drew McIntyre is no longer able to challenge for the WWE championship while it’s in Bobby Lashley’s possession, so we’ll see where both of those two go from here. The build to Money in the Bank next month begins proper. A possible Raw tag team title match, and more!

WWE RAW RESULTS AND LIVE BLOG FOR JUNE 21
If you think you are going away, then won’t you let me have my say? Can’t you see I’ll plead with you? I’ll do anything you want me to, but first I have to liveblog this here pro wrestling show for these folks.
The show opens with Bobby Lashley and his entourage making their entrance.
Montel Vontavious Porter interviews Bobby and he talks about beating Drew McIntyre last night. MVP looks around the lounge and sees two alpha males, five beautiful women, and a bottle of champagne, and that makes for a hell of a party. Porter offers a toast—
Enter the New Day, with a cart full of actual toasted bread.
They want to join in and they do so by throwing the toast into the ring. Montel says this clown nonsense is exactly why they were watching Hell in a Cell and not main eventing it like Bobby Lashley there. Once we get back to live crowds, they’re still gonna be cosplaying and playing video games while he and Lashley enjoy the finer things.

Follow along with this week’s episode of "Raw," the last stop for the red brand before "Hell in a Cell."Advertised for tonight: Eva Marie returns, Drew McIntyre takes on one half of the Raw tag team champions, AJ Styles, in a singles match with Omos looming large, after weeks of singles matches between the two sides The New Day and RK-Bro will finally wrestle in a tag team match, and more!
Kofi Kingston says they’re not going anywhere and it’s well documented that he surrounds himself with his friends and family rather than users that will chew you up and spit you out. He’s got a question for Bob— will MVP and his special lady friends will be coming around after he beats him for the title?
Lashley says he doesn’t have anything to worry about because he’s never losing the title to somebody too busy dancing and making pancakes to realize that he lost the title. There’s a hierarchy in this world, and Bob is on top while New Day are way down at the bottom.
Kofi reminds him that he beat Daniel Bryan to win the title in the first place and just last month, he beat him in this very ring! Kingston rolls the footage to make his point. So Kofi challenges him to a rematch at Money in the Bank and Bob accepts, but he wants a match against Xavier Woods tonight.
Xavier calls him a toxic testosterone meathead and admits that everybody thinks he’s the weak link in New Day but he’s got his accolades too, most importantly being an 11-time tag team champion. And one more thing... their match tonight will be inside of Hell in a Cell!
Fact check: Hillary Clinton was not hanged at Guantanamo Bay
A conspiracy theory suggests that Navy SEALs arrested Hillary Clinton under Trump's direction, and that she was later hanged. This is false.In March, USA TODAY debunked an article that claimed Navy SEALs loyal to former President Donald Trump arrested former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton for treason. The claim was fictional, but an "update" on Clinton's purported arrest is now circulating on TikTok and Instagram.
And on that bombshell, we go to break.
Back from commercial, commentary confirms that the Hell in a Cell match between Woods and Lashley is happening tonight.
We see footage of AJ Styles and Omos running into Viking Raiders backstage earlier.
AJ calls them zeroes before changing his mind and telling them they’re nothing. Ivar says last week they set out to raid and come out with a phenomenal victory. Styles calls it sloppy luck and says if they want to see a real raid, they’ll watch him beat Ricochet to a pulp tonight.
Ricochet gets an inset promo where he says lots of people are gonna do their best to be Mr. Money in the Bank but their best isn’t good enough because he’s willing to do whatever it takes to win.

Commentary hypes up the rest of tonight’s show for us.
We see Randy Orton backstage when Matt Riddle scoots up with a load of RK-Bro merch. He talks about how cool it is that they’re both qualifying and he’s gonna hide his stash in the briefcase if he wins. His stash... of Whoppers. He doesn’t trust the Burger King, you see. Orton snaps at him and asks what he wants.
Riddle says he knows Randy won Money in the Bank before and maybe he has some pointers, bro to bro? Orton sighs and tells Matt to stay out of his way. Riddle points out that that will be hard if they both win their qualifiers, but Randy stares at him until he finishes and says it won’t be awesome for Matt.

Back from commercial we get footage of the mysterious Piper Niven beating Naomi last week in Eva Marie’s name.
Eva Marie is interviewed backstage and she says it’s been five years since she stepped in a ring so everything had to be perfect. So last week she went and got a mani/pedi and unfortunately caught a cold but she knew the WWE Universe was dying to see her, so she arranged for her protege, who she tries to let introduce herself before cutting her off and saying that her name is Doudrop.
Asuka and Naomi get an inset promo.
Naomi says she was thrown off when Doudrop subbed in but that’s not enough to dim the glow, and she’s confident because Eva Marie isn’t ready for her or Asuka.
Doudrop and Eva Marie make their entrance to send us to break.

We see Bobby Lashley shadowboxing backstage to get ready.
Five-time NWA World Heavyweight Champion Adam Pearce and Sonya Deville are in the ring to discuss an incident from last night.
They invite Rhea Ripley to the ring and she obliges. Pearce says they know she disqualified herself intentionally to keep her title safe. Rhea says she’s seen Charlotte Flair abuse the same rules over and over and she only did what would have been done to her if the roles were reversed.
Enter Charlotte Flair.
She says last night Ripley proved to her that she’s smarter than she thought, and she’s actually quite clever. She proved herself to be a strategic competitor, like she is, but she’s still going to destroy her. Deville grants her the rematch at Money in the Bank.
We see footage from earlier today of Natalya and Tamina doing a photoshoot when, in a reverse of the previous segment, they have to go look at the practice ring and ask Dana Brooke and Mandy Rose to stop training. Sexy Muscle Friends point out their hypocrisy, but the tag champs point out that media is part of their obligation.
