WWE Raw Report For June 17th, 2024: Seth “Freakin” Rollins Returns, Will Face Damian Priest For The World Heavyweight Championship At Money In The Bank, The WYATT SICK6 Faction Debuts.

Seth “Freakin” Rollins And Damian Priest (World Heavyweight Champion) Segment: After his monstrous Wrestlemania 40 performance earlier this year, Seth “Freakin” Rollins is back on Raw. Rollins said that it feels damn good to call Monday Night Raw Monday Night Rollins again, and that he has his sights set on the World Heavyweight Championship. As Rollins was about to declare for the men’s MITB ladder match, Damian Priest (World Heavyweight Champion) made his way down to the ring. Priest said that he really wanted to cash his MITB contract in on Rollins, but the circumstances changed to cashing in on Drew McIntyre instead. Priest also said that a year ago when him and Rollins met in this ring, that Rollins was the better overall performer. But this time, Damian Priest is the kingpin on Raw, and he wants a straight up match with Rollins. Rollins said that there are a ton of similarities between himself and Priest, but the one thing Rollins said he had that Damian Priest did not have was some intestinal fortitude. This is where Priest wanted to prove that he the man here on Raw, and thus challenged Rollins to face him for the World Heavyweight Championship in two weeks at MITB, to which Rollins accepted.

Braun Strowman Versus Chad Gable: Chad Gable faced the difficult task of defeating Braun Strowman in a David vs. Goliath match. Gable denigrated his Alpha Academy members who were ringside as he attempted to snip Strowman’s wing-like structures Gable fought valiantly, but Strowman proved too strong, finishing Gable with a massive tilt-a-whirl power slam. After the match, Gable attempted to bully his group once again, before Otis, who has been the most gaslighted by Gable in the last couple of months, had enough and shoved Chad Gable across the ring, leading to hellacious pop from the crowd.

WINNER: BRAUN STROWMAN

Balor proclaimed that he took the key so that Dom Dom wouldn’t get hurt by Morgan. Priest then talked to Balor about MITB, and Balor said that when he wins, he will cash in, on WWE Champion Cody Rhodes over on Smackdown, not World Heavyweight Champion Damian Priest on Raw. Balor said that Priest should much rather have him with the briefcase as opposed to “Main Event” Jey Uso or Rey Mysterio.

Iyo Sky Versus Zelina Vega Versus Kiana James In A Women’s MITB Ladder Match Qualifying Match: We had our first MITB qualifying match tonight for the women’s side. This match overall was ok.
