For several consecutive weeks, Nikki Cross has gotten wins over Charlotte Flair and Raw Women’s Champion Rhea Ripley. On this week’s show, Cross teamed with Asuka against Flair and Ripley. The Raw Women’s Champion and her partner had issues throughout the match which resulted in Flair hitting the Natural Selection onto Rhea and that led Nikki to victory.

In the past two weeks, Cross defeated Flair and Ripley via Beat The Clock challenges. Flair and Ripley are scheduled to go one-on-one at the Hell In A Cell pay-per-view.

Eva Marie is making her return on the 6/14 show. Vignettes of hers have been airing for weeks and her physical return to the WWE takes place next week.

The Viking Raiders (Erik & Ivar) outlasted Riddle and Randy Orton, New Day (Kofi Kingston & Xavier Woods), John Morrison, MACE and T-BAR along with Lince Dorado from Lucha House Party. Ivar and Erik secured themselves a shot at AJ Styles and Omos’ Raw Tag Team Championships.

Jaxson Ryker ambushed Elias from behind on tonight’s program. This set up a match between them and Ryker got the win over Elias via count out. Elias decided not to get back in the ring.

A “priceless” announcement is being teased for the 6/8 NXT . That announcement will be made by Ted DiBiase Sr.  and joining him for the announcement will be L.A. Knight and Cameron Grimes.
