Justin C’s Alternate WWE Universe: Week of 7.8.19 w/King of the Ring Results
Don’t get confused everyone. Remember, I brought back the King of the Ring Tournament to replace Extreme Rules. And the winner gets a shot at their brand’s Champion at SummerSlam.
Here was the tournament after last week:
Now on to RAW!
What Happened Last Week:
The King of the Ring RAW Results are up top.
Alexa Bliss turned face after looking for revenge on Lacey Evans.
Mojo vs Rey is main eventing tonight in a Falls Count Anywhere Match
The Usos vs The Revival next week (7.15.19) inside Hell In A Cell.
WWE RAW 7.8.19
8:00-8:20: Ricochet vs Robert Roode. Ricochet picks up the win to advance to the King of the Ring Quarterfinals.
8:25-8:45: Backstage, Cesaro comes up to Roode and tells him to keep his head up. And he has a proposition for him as they walk off camera and talk.
Backstage The Club is talking to AJ. Club tells AJ he’s still got it. And a losing streak happens to the best. AJ tells the Club at least he’s been on TV lately, and they should take advantage of their opportunity tonight against the War Raiders.
Natalya and Naomi vs Lacey Evans and Sarah Logan. Evans tries walking out on the match but sees Alexa Bliss at the top of the ramp. Alexa chases Lacey through the crowd. Naomi and Natty pick up the win over Sarah Logan.
8:50-8:55: Lacey is seen running into her car. Alexa smashes the back window with a pipe before she drives away.
Becky Lynch is interviewed backstage. She’s asked who her next challenger will be. In comes Mickie James. Mickie says everyone’s favorite MILF is back, and she’s coming for Becky’s Title. (Remember in my Universe I don’t factor in real life injuries. Because, well, it is an alternate universe!)
9:00-9:15: Cesaro vs Lashley. Cesaro picks up the win with Roode in his corner. Roode never interferes. Lashley stares at him going back into the ring. The distraction allows Cesaro to recover and hit the Neutralizer.
9:20-9:35: Bray Wyatt vs Cedric Alexander. Cedric gets some hope spots in but Bray gets the win after a semi squash match.
We get a recap of the Mojo/Rey Mysterio feud, then shots of both men getting ready backstage.
9:40-9:55: War Raiders vs The Club in a non-Title match. War Raiders pick up the win.
Usos/Revival hype package to build their Hell In A Cell match next week. We will here from both teams later.
10:00-10:15: Seth Rollins and Sami Zayn face to face. Rollins makes the point that this Sunday, Zayn’s mouth is finally going to catch up to him. Zayn may have put together a string of quality wins, but he is nowhere at the level of Seth Rollins. Zayn says he is out to prove that he never needed any of these people behind him. Everyone wanted him gone. But he stayed and he will be the people’s Universal Champion. And everyone will have to bow down to him. Rollins holds up the Title as Zayn walks away.
10:20-10:35: Samoa Joe defeats Baron Corbin to move on to the King of the Ring Quarterfinals.
Back to back promos from the Revival and the Usos. We see them training and talking about their Hell In A Cell match next week.
10:40-End: Rey Mysterio vs Mojo Rawley in a Falls Count Anywhere Match. They fight all around the building. Rey goes to run off the announce table but Mojo catches him. Mojo then powerbombs Rey off the stage through some tables and pins him for the win.
Last Week on Smackdown Live

9:00-9:10: Blondtourage promo. Yeah, that’s what I am calling the trio of Charlotte, Mandy Rose and Carmella. Carmella says she realized it was Bayley holding her back. Bayley always tried to get one step ahead of Carmella all the way back to their time in NXT. Mandy brags about filing a restraining order against Sonya Deville after last week.
Out comes Bayley with Ember Moon. They challenge the Blondtourage to a fight at King of the Ring. They laugh, saying they realize there is only two of them right? Bayley says they have a third man. And out comes Becky Lynch as they run off the Blondtourage from the ring.
