New Champ in the house : Apollo Crews. A great result, especially for people who are bored of watching Andrade, Zelina and Angel Garza being at the ring side every match and losing mostly and interfering. Hopefully this title reign will take a new direction.

The IIconics, Billie Kay and Peyton Royce are back last week after a long break. They came to ring and talked about how they should be tag champions. This was interrupted by current champions, Nikki Cross and Alexa Bliss. Iiconics took out both Alexa and Nikki. After returning, WWE creatives are trying their best to potray Iiconics as aggressive people.

Even though Angel was not at the ringside for Andrade’s match, Zelina Vega is here cheering for him. Kevin Owens struggled with single leg for whole match as he couldn’t hit some of his moves. This was one of the shocking result of this year’s Raw as Angel Garza defeated Kevin Owens clean without any interruption AFTER the match has started.

After the match, Seth Rollins warned Aleister Black, that if he interferes with Carillo, what happened to Rey will repeat on Carillo.

Charlotte vs Nia Jax vs Natalya. With Asuka Joining the commentary team, this match has become more interesting. Nia used her strength to take control of both the wrestlers, but it was backfired when they both escaped her elbow drop. Natalya and Charlotte teamed up on Nia and sent her out of the ring.

Last week on Raw, MVP lost to Apollo Crew in the Money In the bank qualification match. He introduced the three Raw Superstars who are contenders for MITB match. Rey Mysterio, Aleister Black and Apollo Crews to MVP Lounge, soon they got interrupted by Zelina Vega asking the three to challenge her crew, Austin Theory, Andrade and Angel Garza.

  • It’s Austin Theory, Andrade, Angel Garza vs Aleister Black, Apollo Crews, Rey Mysterio. Match has started well with Rey showing his athleticism as usually.

  • Next up, it was Nia Jax vs Shayna Baszler vs Asuka in a Triple Threat Match. There is no winner in this match as it has never started. Asuka called out Nia Jax for injuring her friend. Shayna went after Asuka. Nia Jax throwed hit them with ladder. It was a chaos and maybe they’re trying to save this for later. But, it was not necessary at this point.
  • Bobby Lashley vs Denzel Dejournette. Looks like the relation between Lana and The Almighty Bobby Lashley is finally ending. He asked Lana to stay backstage because he feels she is a distraction. He then dominated Denzel and pinned after a spear.
  • Liv Morgan vs Ruby Riott . What a finish from Liv Morgan at the end. She has performed her finishing move, the oblivion after taking support from the ropes. It was amazing. Finally WWE creative is pushing Liv Morgan. But, what’s this result mean for Ruby Riott? Did she turned into a jobber right after her injury? Match started off with Ruby Riott taking control of her after she ran into a Riott kick. But that’s not enough for Ruby to pin Liv, she then performed oblivion to pin her former friend.

WWE Raw Review Apr 20

We believe This week’s Raw is better than Smackdown.
Show started with The Champ Drew McIntyre. He addressed Seth Rollins who got attacked last week. He challenged Seth to a Match. But he got interrupted by Zelina, Austin and Angel Garza. Andrade came from behind and attacked, only to receive claymore at the end.

Next up, it was Money in the bank Qualifying match. Aleister Black vs Austin Theory. It has regular interruptions from Zelina. Even though Austin took the advantage but it was not enough for him to hit a ATL. At the end, it Aleister Black hit Black Mass to pin Austin Theory and enter Money in the bank match. He’s getting the push he deserves. It’s funny how Zelina, a real life partner of Aleister is supporting his opponent and yelling at him to play fair.



Shayna Baszler vs Indi Hartwell. Another domination from Shyna Baszler. WWE Creative wants to promote her as a bad and no-nonsense character and this match has added into it. She targeted the arm of Indi just like she targeted Sarah Logan‘s arm last week. She then took it to next level when she brought the ladder and used it to hurt Indi’s arm more.

Victory for Ricochet & Cedric. They defeated NXT Roster, Shane Thorne and Brendon Vink. It was Cedric who pinned Thorne after hitting his finishing move Lumbar Check.They deserved to win after losing last week to Viking Raiders.

Nia Jax defeated Kairi Sane. It was a rematch from last week but the same result. Even though Kairi targeted Nia Jax knee to bring her down. Even though WWE trying to push Nia Jax, WWE universe is not happy with her in ring work, There are some dangerous moves in this match, which could’ve caused Injury to Kairi Sane



Amazing Promo from Seth Rollins. He said Drew is goin’ in the same route he took once, but the only difference is Drew is not brave as him. He also mentioned that WWE currently needs a leader and he’ll be the one.

Mixed reaction from the fans for this one. Apollo Crews defeated Veteran MVP. MVP started off with his good ol’ trash talking, He praised Apollo Crews but ended up forgetting Crews Name. It was funny. match has started off with reversals and hard hitting. Even though a grog splash was avoided by MVP. He couldn’t avoid sit-down powerbomb from Apollo Crews. Some fans are happy that Apollo Crews is finally getting the push but at the same time, some fans are not happy watching MVP lose.

Liv Morgan Defeated Ruby Riott. Former Riott Squad Members goin’ at each other. It looks like WWE wants to push Liv Morgan and not Ruby Riott. Another member of Riott squad has already been released. Liv hit her with Srpingboard Flatlined and pinned Ruby Riott.

Buddy Murphy vs Rey Mysterio. As we all know Mysterio recently had a dislocated finger and Buddy targeted it for the entire match. Two great wrestlers going at each other. This is one of the best match of this week’s Raw. finally It was Rey mysterio, who qualified for Money in the bank match by defeated Buddy Murphy after his Iconic 619.

NXT Champ, Charlotte Flair vs Kayden Carter. It was not a regular Charlotte’s match, where she dominates the entire match. This match has got everything. It was Kayden who started off with a submission move. But, Charlotte has cut down the domination from Kayden and locked her with a Figure-8 and won via submission.

Andrade Cien is back after taking claymore’s. He’s up against Akira Tozawa. Tozawa started off the match with some high speed moves, like he usually does. But those were not enough to pin Andrade. Andrade hit his finisher, Hammerlock DDT to pin Akira.

EST Bianca Belair defeated Santana Garrett. She was introduced by Street Profits. She was too good for Santana Garrett. She hit the K.O.D to pin Garrett. It was a short match, where WWE wants to push Bianca. can she continue like this? Only time will tell!


Time for main event. Drew McIntyre vs Angel Garza. As usually, All the three, Zelina, Andrade and Austin were at the ring side to cause the distraction. McIntyre hit one of the best chops we’ve ever seen on Garza.Both Andrade and Theory tried interrupting and they were successful, even though it helped Angel Garza to took control of Drew McIntyre, It was for a very less time. Highlight of the match is when, Drew took a huge dive over the top rope on all the three, Garza, Andrade and Austin. He attacked all the three and hit a Claymore on Angel Garza to pin. He end the show with him doing Andrade’s Tranquilo pose.

Raw Review – 13 April

This week’s raw is lot better than the Raw after Wrestlemania for so many reasons. It started of with Drew McIntyre thanking fans for the support he’s had. Just when McIntyre showing the clips of him defeating the Giant Big Show, Zelina and Andrade has interrupted and challenged for match.

Now It’s time for Money in the bank Qualification match, Empress of Tomorrow Asuka vs Ruby Riott. Match started off with Ruby Riott showing her fighting spirit. but Asuka is too good for her. Asuka ended up defeating Ruby by Submission with Asuka Lock. It was a great match.But it was not good news for Ruby Riott fans. just when fans thought she’ll get the push she deserves after the major injury, she is back to losing again. But this match is a one to watch and we hope this is a start of something new for Ruby. maybe a rivalry with Asuka? Why not!

Aleister Black vs Oney Lorcan. Thankfully this was not another squash match. Oney Lorcan has had his fair share of TV time on this ocassion. Match started off with hard stries, But with Lorcan’s uppercut, match went to next level, with Lorcan dominating Aleister with his submissions moves and hard hitting Strikes. But it was Aleister who won the match with his Black Mass. This match gave something new to the WWE universe.

Shayna Baszler vs Sarah Logan. TBH we all now who the winner will be. After her loss at Wrestlemania, there’s no way WWE goin’ to alolow Shayna lose to Sarah Logan. Another squash match to potray Queen of Spades is the dangerous woman in the WWE right now.

Akira Tozawa vs Austin Theory. It was a start for something new. looks like WWE is planning something big for Andrade, Angel Garza and Austin with Zelina at the ringside. Austin Theory hit his finishing move ATL to pin the former cruiserweight champ. After the match, all the three attacked Tozawa to show the domination

It’s time for Angel Garza vs Tehuti Miles. Another squash match to push Angel Garza. But guess what! Vega, Andrade and Theory came back again to the ring to beat up NXT’s Miles. This is the only boring match on today’s Raw.

Time for final MITB for Today’s Raw. Kairi Sane vs Nia Jax. Another squash match face palm WWE universe are particularly not happy with how they’re treating Kairi Sane as she was a top star in her home town. If things stands like this, She won’t be staying in WWE much longer. Another match to show the dominance of Nia Jax.

Bobby Lashley vs No Way Jose. Bad News? Another squash match! Good News? Will this be the end of this Lana-Lashley thing? We’ve seen Lashley yelling shut up at Lana. The whole match was dominated by Bobby Lashley and picked up the win.

Viking Raiders vs Ricochet & Cedric. We’ve seen last week that WWE are planning a new Tag Team with Ricochet and Cedric. Viking Raiders have the size advantage. But will the impressive high flying tag team can win? The Answer is NO! Even though they had fair share of chances, Viking Raiders were too powerful for them. What is goin’ to happen with Talented superstars like Ricochet and Cedric? We should wait and see!

Time for Main event. Andrade vs Drew. Zelina, Angel Garza, Austin all were at the ringside. Match started off with WWE champion dominating Andrade. There were some trash talking from Austin and Garza from the ring side to irk Drew McIntyre. Draw Mcintyre took out Angel and Theory and then Drew picked up the with his finisher Claymore.When the match is over Garza hit with his Chop block. Monday Night Messiah, Seth Rollins came to ring to hit and superkick and finished off with Curb stomps.Intersting one! Start of a new feud.

At the end, Cedric and Ricochet won by pinfall (winner: Cedric Alexander and Ricochet)
