WWE Monday Night Raw 4/4/16…A New Chapter

The night after Wrestlemania is usually entertaining, in part because of the crowd.  I have to think the city of Dallas will be rocking, we will see where we go from here.

Raw is now.

Welcome to “My House” as we take a look back at Wrestlemania from last night.

Michael Cole, JBL, and Byron Saxton welcome us to the show.

Kicking the night off with Mr. McMahon.

The crowd plays sing along with Vince’s music.  Vince talks about Shane losing last night.  He also brings up a new WWE World Heavyweight Champion.

No more lock box, Vince is in full control, and will always be.  There was one time however that got to Vince last night.  When Shane climbed on top of that cell.  He said to himself don’t do it.  He had no idea it meant that much to Shane to risk his life to achieve his goals.  On one hand, he admires Shane for doing that, but on the other hand, he wants to know how Shane can be so stupid.

The crowd chants something that Vince has no idea what they are saying, but thanks the crowd.

Here comes the money!!

A bruised up Shane McMahon shuffles to the ramp to meet with his father.

The crowd thanks Shane, and Vince wanted to know what Shane is doing here?

Shane thanks the fans, and he said he came to do two things, since he is the only man in the family, he wanted to shake Vince’s hand.

The second was to thank the crowd.  What they gave to him he will never forget.

The fans are chanting he still has it, and Vince is screaming at the fans, blaming them for what happened to Shane.

He wanted to thank them again, and goodbye.

Nobody upstage Vince.

Is this how crazy and nonsensical things would be if Shane was running Monday Night Raw?

Just to prove Vince’s point, let’s see what Shane has.  Go.

Shane McMahon is running Raw tonight.

Shane O’ Mac is running the show tonight.

OHHHHH Dallas, don’t you dare be sour.  Clap for your world-famous 2-time champs….AND FEEL THE POWER!!!

It’s a New Day, yes it is.

WWE Tag Team Championship match is set.

The crowd is chanting Booty-O’s.

Did things go according to plan for your boys?  No, not really.  But Kofi did get to twerk in the ring with Shawn Michaels.  On the other hand, Xavier did receive a Stone Cold Stunner from “Stone Cold” Steve Austin.

Xavier has to admit, it was on him.  But it was lit up, BABY!!

They do hold the last piece of Booty-O’s cereal.

Speaking of Booty, they are about to get back on The league of Booty.  And they will walk out still your….

WWE World Tag Team Champions.

But why?  Because New Day Rocks!!

Tag Title match is next.

New Day retains their titles, pinning Barrett with a Kofi elbow drop.

Sheamus is sick and tired of this.  They are a group of the baddest athletes of the world.  They should be destroying everyone, but there is something wrong.

Everybody knows you’re only as strong your weakest link.

Rusev and Del Rio hold Barrett, and Sheamus gives him a Brogue Kick.

The lights go out, and The Wyatts are in the ring, attacking League of Nations.

Sister Abigail for Sheamus.

The crowd thanks Wyatt, follow the buzzards.

Renee Young catches up with Vince, asking since he is leaving, does that mean he has confidence in Shane running the show.  Vince is leaving because he doesn’t want to be here when the ship falls down.  This is only temporarily.

Summer Rae is in the ring, telling us that if she had been charge of Bad and Beautiful, things would have been different, but at least she wasn’t Sasha Banks.  She wasted a Wrestlemania moment.

Here comes Sasha, I guess we have a match.

Summer forgot one thing.  She is still Sasha Banks, and she is still “The Boss”.

And she slaps Summer, so our match is now.

Banks Statement, that is all that needs to be said.

NXT’s Apollo Crews is next.

Apollo Crews is going to face Tyler Breeze.

Apollo wins with the Sit-Out Powerbomb.  A great debut for Apollo.

Footage from Today Show when Roman Reigns and Charlotte visited the set.

Tonight, Charlotte gets her official championship coronation.

But next, and this ought to be fun we will hear from Roman.

Here comes Roman, the new Champ.

Roman mocks the crowd, saying he’s not a bad guy.  He’s not a good guy, he’s THE guy.

Which is why at the biggest Wrestlemania of all-time, he beat HHH’s ass.

And he told Shane if anyone wants this, bring your ass out here now.

Break The Walls Down!!

It’s Jericho.

All of the fans here can shut your damn mouths, and listen to Jericho.

Reigns said he is THE guy?  The way he sees it, Roman is just a guy.  He looks like a jackass, like the fans here.

Jericho has seen them come and go, and he is the best in the world at what he does.

But Roman, you can’t compare to Jericho.  The “internet darling” AJ Styles can’t compare to Jericho.  So this is Jericho putting everything on the line, he is going to the head of the line, Roman will put his title on the line.  Do you understand what I am saying to you now.

Enter AJ Styles.

AJ wants a shot at the title, and so does Kevin Owens.

He wants a title shot, as does Sami Zayn.

Now all four men are fighting each other, while Reigns is loving this.

Reigns spears Jericho.

Earlier tonight, Vince put Shane in charge of Raw.

Wrestlemania Rematch tonight, The Usos Vs The Dudleys in a Tables Match.

Baron Corbin is standing outside with pride over his big Andre The Giant Memorial Battle Royal win last night.

For those of you who don’t know who he is, Baron doesn’t care.  This trophy is all you need to know.  He has broken bodies and shattered dreams, to get here.  And there will be end of days to those who stands in his way.

Corbin Vs Ziggler is now.

The match ends in a countout, when the two men were fighting outside.  Baron blames this on the ref, and hits End of Days on the mat floor.

Ziggler has a new movie coming out tomorrow, on DVD.  It’s called “Countdown”, so we will have him get beat up for it.

Next, video footage of Lesnar Vs Ambrose from last night.

Video stills from last night’s Lesnar Vs Ambrose match.

Woo…Woo…Woo….You Know It!!

The new IC Champion, Zack Ryder is set for action.  He will face The Miz.

The crowd chants Ryder deserves it, and he does.

Last night was the greatest night of his life.  All of Zack’s dreams came true, and he finally had it.  When he was a kid, he had a picture taken with Razor Ramon, holding Razor’s newly won IC Title at Wrestlemania 10.  Now last night, Razor held his title.

He also thanks his dad for taking him to MSG as a kid, and always having his back.

Here comes The Miz.

Miz calls Ryder a one-hit wonder, just a flash in the pan.  But Zack ruined his moment.  He had the leather and gold at the cusp of his reach, but Zack shoved him off the lader, and stole the title.

Sucks to be you, bro.

It does not suck to be The Miz.  Zack is lucky to even had been in that match.  If he wants to prove he belongs in the same category as Razor Ramon, Shawn Michaels, The Miz, he will put the IC Title on the line tonight.

Zack has nothing to prove.

Miz tells Zack if it was him, he would put the title on the line to prove he isn’t all hype.

Let’s do this.

Title match is on.

Well, we have a new champion.  Zack’s dad shoves The Miz.  Maryse, who is The Miz’s wife slaps Zack’s dad.  Miz hits a Skull Crushing Finale, and pins Zack.

Maryse celebrates the win with her husband.

Renee Young is with KO.

Kevin lost his title with 6 other guys.  Does that sound fair to Renee?

Renee brings up his fight with Sami Zayn earlier.

Kevin says he didn’t lose the IC Title, because Sami was fighting him.  But he is onto bigger and better things.  Shane MacMahon is in charge, and he knows he is better.  So he will compete in the Fatal 4-Way match tonight, then go on to win, and beat Roman Reigns.  The Road to KOMania 2 begins, tonight.

Charlotte’s Women Title Celebration is next.

Lita is in the ring, with all of the Divas.  Praising this group of women, who last night put their body on the limit.

So let’s bring out the new Women’s Champion, Charlotte.

Before Charlotte says anything, this moment is about gratitude.  This is about all of the women in this ring.  All of the superstars in this ring.  This wouldn’t happen if it wasn’t for the fans.  They all believed in the women.

The fans are loving this moment.

Thank you to everyone at home, thank you to everyone in this ring, because this is the future.  But most importantly.

The crowd is chanting women’s wrestling.

But most importantly she wouldn’t be going down as our first Women’s champion, if it wasn’t for her father, “The Nature Boy” Ric Flair.  His daughter is finally immortalized.  She thanks the fans because it fired her fuel to victory.

Some of these women have been here for 7 or 8 years, she hasn’t even been here for a year.  She was our last Divas Champion, and now our first Women’s Champion.

Sasha, Becky, we did it.  No actually, I did it, but we did it.

Now all of the women leave the ring.

Show some respect, that is why she is our Women’s Champion.

Natalya has heard enough.

Charlotte needs to know a thing or two about humility.  Nattie is the women that has given her the hardest earned matches, like the one they had at Roadblock.

Nattie has the heart of a champion.  So how about Charlotte puts her genetics on the line, against Nattie’s.

This title says it all, Charlotte’s genetics will always be better than Natalya.

Nattie had enough, and nailed a Sharpshooter, but daddy bailed her out.

Renee Young is with AJ Styles.

Tonight is about change.  Shane McMahon is running Raw.  We also have a champion who wants to face people.  He didn’t lose at Wrestlemania, just to fade in thin air.  Tonight, the era of change is here, and it’s phenomenal.

Coming up next, The Usos Vs The Dudleys in a Tables Match.

The Colon Cousins are being repackaged in a vignette.

Tag Team action is now.

The Dudleys win, by putting The Usos through a table, twice.  Someone screwed up here, but they won.

Another Renee Young sighting with Sami Zayn.

This is Sami’s biggest night of his career, because he has an opportunity to face the WWE World Heavyweight Champion.  Nothing is handed here, and Kevin Owens crushed his dreams, laying Zayn out and Powerbombing him through a table.

Moments ago, we see what we just saw, Owens laying out Zayn.

The Dudleys have not gone anywhere, and here come Enzo and Cass.

It’s a NXT Reunion here.

My name is Enzo Amore, and I am a certified G and you can’t teach that.  This guy here is Big Cass, he is 7 feet tall, and you can’t teach that.  Badda Boom, HOW YA DOING?

So we have a couple of haters?  Well, let me tell you something, hate is disguised by love.  And I’d be jealous of us too, because you too are ugly.

The crowd loves Amore and Big Cass.

It seems yous two don’t like what he is saying, says Big Cass.  So why don’t you come to the ring, and do something about it.

They run to the ring, but they walk away.

Dudley Boyz, there is only one word to describe you, and he will spell it out for you.  S.A.W.F.T.

The Rock returned last night at Wrestlemania.

The Wyatt Family crashed his party, and John Cena helped his buddy out.

Sami Zayn is out of the Fatal 4-Way match, so who is stepping up?  We find out, next.

This Thursday on Smackdown, IC Title match, The Miz Vs Zack Ryder.

And Dr. Phil is the special guest host next week, on Raw.

Fatal 4-Way match is up now.

The 4th man is the returning Cesaro.

AJ Styles picks up the win, pinning Jericho with a Phenomenal Forearm.  AJ celebrates, as we end Raw with AJ being the Number One Contender to the WWE World Heavyweight Championship.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

On one hand, it was a fun show, on the other hand, I was a bit bored in some spots of the show.  There wasn’t much interaction with Shane being in charge of Raw.  Why didn’t any wrestlers go to Shane with issues?  Why did Cesaro return, only to not win the match?  So, in other words, nothing has changed in regards to Cesaro, who might I add received a superstar ovation after coming back.  So AJ Styles loses at Mania, but next night is the Number One Contender?

Okay.

But Dr. Phil is coming in next week, there HAS to be a segment of Vince being analyzed with his family issues, by Dr. Phil.
