Here are your quick and dirty, editorial-free WWE Raw results for April 10, 2017. The Raw After The Raw After WrestleMania featured the much-hyped “Superstar Shake-Up,” and began setting the stage for the second half of the year. It’s the Footpath To SummerSlam, we guess!
Be back here tomorrow for the full Best and Worst of Raw column.
WWE Raw Results:
— The show opened with John Cena’s music hitting, and The Miz and Maryse dressed as Cena and Nikki Bella came out. They mocked the couple, as they have been doing on Smackdown, and said that since Hollywood didn’t want them, they were returning to Raw. They were interrupted by Intercontinental Champion Dean Ambrose, who pretended they were actually John and Nikki and used the fake confusion to mock Miz and Maryse. Miz revealed himself, and Ambrose hit him with Dirty Deeds.
1. The Revival defeated The New Day. The New Day came out with a blow-up doll dressed as Kofi Kingston, which represented their injured member. Dash and Dawson interrupted the Midnight Hour and caught Xavier Woods coming off the top rope in a Shatter Machine to get the pin.
— Curt Hawkins appeared in the ring and announced he was back on Raw. He was interrupted by the Big Show, who came to the ring, hit Hawkins with a KO punch, and left.
2. TJ Perkins defeated Austin Aries. Neville sat in on commentary for this match. Aries taunted Neville and drew him down the ramp, but the cruiserweight champ didn’t get involved. Aries got back in the ring and got caught in a small package by TJP.
— After the match, Perkins beat down Aries and hit him with a Detonation Kick. Neville gloated and celebrated at the turn of events.
— Seth Rollins came out and cut a promo about how he was able to defeat Triple H and Stephanie McMahon with the help of the fans. He said he was going to be Stephanie’s enemy No. 1 whenever she heals up and comes back, so it would be the easy move for him to pack up and head to Smackdown Live … but he did the easy thing once before and he’ll never do it again. He’s staying on Raw, and if anyone wants him out, they’ll have to kick him out.
Kurt Angle came out and said it’s true: Stephanie made it clear she wants him gone, but his agenda is to put on the best possible show, and that means he wants Seth Freakin’ Rollins. He said as long as he’s the GM, Rollins has a home on Raw.
Angle left, but Samoa Joe jumped Rollins from behind. Angle tried to break up the fight, to no avail. Rollins sent Joe packing with a straight side kick.
3. Nia Jax defeated Charlotte Flair. Nia hit an avalanche and Samoan drop before pinning Charlotte. Elias Samson may or may not have walked through the crowd during this match.
4. Finn Bálor defeated Jinder Mahal. Bálor won by pinfall after hitting the Coup de Grace.
— After the match, Bray Wyatt appeared on the video screen and said that he’s been watching Finn. He said that Raw is his new home, but he doesn’t intend to come alone, as he still has a WWE Championship rematch against Randy Orton.
