Brock Lesnar - Raw June 12 2017 @WWE/Twitter

WWE Monday Night Raw: Results, recap for June 12

Matt and Jeff Hardy vs. Cesaro and Sheamus in a 2-out-of-3 Falls Match for the Raw Tag Team Championship ended in a 1-1 draw after a double countout in the third fall

Sheamus started with a Brogue Kick attempt on Matt Hardy, but he ducked it. Hardy weathered the storm early, and tagged Jeff Hardy. Jeff Hardy ran to the ropes and lifted himself as Sheamus followed and landed a Brogue Kick into the corner for the first pinfall:

Back from commercial break, Jeff Hardy was getting worked over by Sheamus before he made the hot tag to Matt Hardy. Matt Hardy hit the Twist of Fate to get their first pinfall to make it 1-1:

After back-and-forth action, Cesaro locked in the sharpshooter in the middle of the ring, but Matt Hardy got the rope break. Matt Hardy made the hot tag to Jeff Hardy as Cesaro reached Sheamus. Jeff Hardy hit the Twist of Fate in the middle of the ring, but Cesaro broke it up. Sheamus set Jeff Hardy up in the corner and missed a shoulder block, as he fell backwards, setting up the Swanton Bomb.

Jeff Hardy pinned him for the two-count before Cesaro pulled his partner outside of the ring. All hell broke loose outside the ring for a double countout, resulting in a draw.

  • Samoa Joe cut a promo backstage on Brock Lesnar.

  • Enzo caught Big Show backstage and thanked him for saving him. Enzo hinted at Big Show being the one who attacked Big Cass. Show called Cass S-A-W-F-T.

  • R-Truth hit another segment on Goldust turning on him.

Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson def. Enzo Amore and Big Cass


Despite being attacked backstage, Cass made his way to the ring with Enzo. Cass did work clearing the ring before staggering around and tagging in Enzo. Enzo did his best to hold off Gallows and Anderson, but the duo hit the Magic Killer for the win. As Gallows and Anderson beat down Enzo following the match, Big Show made the save. Big Cass came to as Enzo hugged Big Show in the center of the ring. It appeared WWE was teasing a split yet again.

  • After Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson made their entrances, Big Cass was shown laid out backstage yet again. In the background, Dash Wilder and Scott Dawson were seen sneaking behind the scenes.
  • Neville attacked Rich Swann before the match could start, locking in the Rings of Saturn. Neville then called out the Cruiserweight division, specifically Akira Tozawa.

Heath Slater and Rhyno def. The Miz and Bear

Miz came down to the ring without a partner, so the bear from last week’s celebration came to his aide. The bear gained momentum and tagged Miz in, only for the Intercontinental Champion to attack him. Miz ripped off the head of the bear and it was another no-name guy. The bear jumped back into the ring later in the match to hit Dirty Deeds on Slater. The bear ripped off his own head to show himself as Dean Ambrose. Miz tried to escape and knocked Maryse off the apron. She limped to the back, Miz took a Dirty Deeds DDT and Ambrose pulled Slater over the champ for the pinfall.

  • Corey Graves interviewed Bayley in a pre-recorded segment.

  • Finn Balor vignette aired. Michael Cole talked him up as a former champion and sure-to-be future champ.

Sasha Banks, Mickie James and Dana Brooke def. Emma, Nia Jax and Dana Brooke via submission

Emma’s return to WWE television was stifled after Alexa Bliss took off in the middle of the match as her partner attempted a tag. Banks reversed a roll-up into the Banks Statement for the win.

  • Alexa Bliss is confronted by Nia Jax, who says Mickie James and Dana Brooke are the problems, not her. James and Brooke hit the ring, followed by a returning Emma and eventually Sasha Banks, all staking their claim for the Raw Women’s Championship. Banks lays out Bliss before a commercial break.

  • Miz asked Heath Slater backstage to join his entourage and leave Rhyno. Slater said he wants a shot at the Intercontinental Championship and Miz agreed…one day. Rhyno got angry and said for Miz to find a tag partner because they’ll match up later in the show.

Apollo Crews def. Kalisto

Titus O’Neil had Akira Tozawa ringside as he’s trying to recruit him to Titus Brand. Crews pinned Kalisto and O’Neil picked up Tozawa and the three celebrated in the ring with a selfie.

  • Matt and Jeff Hardy cut a backstage promo on Cesaro and Sheamus, noting they’re ready to take back the Raw Tag Team titles.
  • Bray Wyatt cut a promo on Seth Rollins, calling him out for essentially calling the Eater of Worlds names. Rollins confronted Wyatt and called him a coward. Wyatt disappeared from the ring, only to show up on the main screen. Wyatt told Rollins to face his fears.

  • WWE teased Roman Reigns for next week, who is expected to make a “massive” announcement regarding his SummerSlam plans.

Cedric Alexander def. Noam Dar

Dar was distracted walking down the entrance ramp talking to Alicia Fox on Facetime. When he finally put down the phone, Alexander hit the Lumbar Check for the quick squash win.

  • Promo hyping up Cedric Alexander is shown. Backstage segment between Noam Dar, Alicia Fox and Alexander set up for a match after the commercial break.

  • Kurt Angle confronted Miz for interfering in Ambrose’s match. Miz complained that Angle was too focused on the “dirt” someone has on him, which the GM took offense to. Miz said Angle needed to do something after Ambrose ruined his celebration last week. The GM told Miz to deal with his problems himself.
  • Another vignette for the rebranded Goldust was shown.


Elias Samson def. Dean Ambrose

The Miz and his wife Maryse showed up at ringside and distracted the former champ, allowing The Drifter to hit a swinging neckbreaker for the win.

  • Brock Lesnar brawled with Samoa Joe following the first showdown between the Universal champ and the No. 1 contender to his title
