WWE Raw Results: Biggest Winners, Losers and Moments from June 15

Published by Bleacher Report on Tue, 16 Jun 2015

Just 24 hours after successfully retaining his WWE World Heavyweight Championship in a ladder match against Dean Ambrose, Seth Rollins rolled into the Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland and wasted little time establishing himself as Raw's biggest winner.He was completely unbearable as the egotistical braggart fresh off a pay-per-view victory, incessently reminding fans that he beat Ambrose all on his own.He alienated everyone around him, including his fellow Authority mates, leading to the final segment of the evening in which his opponent for Battleground was revealed.Rollins' facial expressions and body language told the story as he watched Brock Lesnar stalk toward the ring in his first appearance since the night after WrestleMania, when The Architect taunted him with the world heavyweight title that was rightfully The Beast Incarnate's.The champion was frozen in place, watching as Lesnar's advocate Paul Heyman shook hands with Triple H and Stephanie McMahona deal in place for what is sure to be his execution come July 19.Rollins was brilliant on Monday night as the blowhard who touted his greatness only to have his self-promotion backfire when his own associates booked him in a match with Lesnar designed to either prove his greatness or demonstrate his inability to succeed as their chosen one.It was a three-hour performance that defined the Rollins character and set up a monumental main event for what is typically a C-level event.The world heavyweight champion was not the only Superstar who enjoyed a phenomenal showing on Monday night. On the heels of Money in the Bank, several stars stepped up to the plate and hit the ball out of the park, determined to maintain the momentum they had built on Sunday evening.And then there are those who failed to do so.Which Superstars and Divas fell in which category'These are the biggest winners and losers from the June 15 episode of Raw.Winner: NevilleThe Man That Gravity Forgot followed up his breakout performance at Sunday's pay-per-view extravaganza by shining brightest once again as he teamed with The Prime Time Players to knock off The New Day.Neville exploded into the match late, wiping out his opposition, including both Xavier Woods and Kofi Kingston. Moments later, he launched off the top rope with the Red Arrow, scoring the win for his team.The former NXT champion has been the most steadily booked star on the roster since his debut, neither losing much nor winning to the point that fans turn on him for being the company's golden boy. It is smart use of him at this point in his career and will only benefit him as more opportunities arise.Loser: Randy OrtonPrior to Money in the Bank and a feud with Sheamus, The Viper wandered aimlessly around the midcard with no real direction to speak of. In fact, the period following the Payback pay-per-view saw him miss numerous shows, including the Elimination Chamber special.Now that he is back on television, he has been inserted into a rivalry with Sheamus that is almost certainly designed for him to lose.The fact of the matter is that The Celtic Warrior is the new Money in the Bank briefcase holder and unlikely to be jobbed out any time soon. That leaves Orton to take the fall. And then what'It is interesting, if not disconcerting, to see one of the elite stars in the company surrounded by such uncertainty. With little space at the top of the card, though, he really has nowhere else to go. That means there is plenty more meandering in the midcard left for the 11-time world champion.Winners: Paige and The Bella TwinsThe WWE Divas followed up a strong match between Paige and Nikki Bella with some intriguing character development and storytelling on Monday night.Paige tried desperately to get the rest of the Divas roster to stand up for itself in the face of The Bella Twins' oppression. However, she failed, leaving her to fend for herself in a Handicap match.She lost.There are a couple of elements at play in the current storyline that make complete sense and add to the intrigue surrounding the angle.It is natural that the very same Divas Paige has alienated since arriving last spring would want nothing to do with her, even if it means allowing the Bellas to dominate the division.Secondly, there is the question of just who will eventually stand up and support Paige in her war with Nikki and Brie. The likelihood of it being an NXT star, perhaps Charlotte, is high and should lead to fresh matches throughout the summer.Lastly, it demonstrates that WWE Creative has actually invested time into a Divas storyline. The performers deserve the opportunity to prove themselves in a program that involves twists and turns rather than random matches for matches' sake.The women have held up their end of the deal thus far with solid in-ring and mic work. Whether WWE Creative can keep the story interesting going forward is the real question.Loser: Dean AmbroseThe Lunatic Fringe was outstanding in the bit of television time he received on Monday night, so his status as a loser has nothing to do with his performance.Instead, it has to do with the questions that arose following the show.With Rollins preoccupied with Lesnar, the feud between John Cena and Kevin Owens likely to continue, Ryback feuding with The Miz and Big Show, Bray Wyatt and Roman Reigns in the infancy of their program, and Randy Orton and Sheamus continuing their rivalry, Ambrose is left without anything to do.That's right. After again proving that he is one of the most popular stars in the industry, he is likely to be left feuding with Kaneif anythingand that is most certainly not a desirable position to be in.Sure, he beat Sheamus in a very good match to start the show, but that does little to change the fact that he is on the outside looking in."What now'" is hardly the question a Superstar in Ambrose's position on the card should have to ask, but that is unfortunately the situation he finds himself in.
