Cody Rhodes appeared on WWE Raw and shared that Brock Lesnar is going to be on the 7/17 edition of the show. Rhodes would go on to add that he wants a rubber match against Lesnar at SummerSlam. The 7/17 Raw is in Rhodes’ home-state of Georgia and ‘Arrow’ and ‘Heels’ star Stephen Amell will be in attendance

There was a segment involving Ricochet and Logan Paul. Ricochet said he wanted to issue a challenge for a match but instead, he wants to hurt Logan. He did a front flip over the top rope, akin to the moment he had with Velveteen Dream on NXT. Ricochet took Paul down with a Sliced Bread. 

During the No-DQ singles match between The Miz and Tommaso Ciampa, Bronson Reed assisted Miz to victory. When Reed returned to WWE in December, he was Miz’s hired gun. 

It is official that on 7/17, Chelsea Green and Sonya Deville are challenging Liv Morgan and Raquel Rodriguez for their Women’s Tag Team Championships. 

Drew McIntyre scored his first win on WWE television since the March 31st episode of SmackDown. He teamed with Matt Riddle and they defeated Giovanni Vinci and Ludwig Kaiser. Post-match, Kaiser and Intercontinental Champion GUNTHER were not pleased with Vinci being pinned and they walked away from him. Later in the show, GUNTHER and Ludwig could be seen talking to Vinci. On the July 17th Raw, Riddle is going one-on-one with GUNTHER and the remainder of Imperium are banned from ringside. 

Viking Raiders (Ivar & Erik) and Valhalla interrupted Maxxine Dupri’s graduation ceremony. Valhalla took her Alpha Academy Letterman jacket. Chad Gable and Otis are taking on The Viking Raiders on 7/17 in a Viking Rules match. 

Zoey Stark scored a pinfall victory over Becky Lynch in their singles match.
