Here is this week’s Monday Night RAW results.
Monday Night RAW Results – 4/27/20
Samoa Joe is on commentary with Tom Phillips and Byron Saxton tonight.
RAW opens with MVP in the VIP Lounge. His guests for tonight are the three superstars that will be representing RAW in the Money In The Bank ladder match, Rey Mysterio, Apollo Crews and Aliester Black. MVP kindly asks Black to break anything, and Crews is MVP’s pick to win the match.
MVP asks Mysterio what it means to become Mr. Money In The Bank. Before, Rey gets a chance to answer, MVP says it’ll be a chance for him to cement his legacy and legendary career. He then says Black can elevate his career to new levels and painfully admits defeat to Crews. MVP then asks Crews if he has what it takes. Before Apollo answers, Andrade, Austin Theory and Angel Garza come out to interrupt.
Zelina Vega says no one wants to hear what Apollo Crews has to say and that the WWE Universe can’t get enough of Andrade, Angel Garza and WWE’s fastest rising star, Austin Theory. Zelina tells Mysterio, Crews and Black that they can’t hang with their trio. The three make their way down to the ring and they take down the entrance poles.
Zelina says that Mysterio, Black and Crews need to do what’s best for Monday Night RAW, and surrender their spots to Andrade, Theory and Garza. Mysterio calls Zelina loco, but also says that she came out here to pick a fight. With that, all six men brawl, and the faces clean house. Looks like we’re getting a six-man tag.
Rey Mysterio, Aliester Black and Apollo Crews vs. Andrade, Angel Garza and Austin Theory
Black and Mysterio fly everywhere, and eventually Apollo Crews is able to get a sit-out powerbomb to pin Andrade for the win.
Winners: Rey Mysterio, Aliester Black and Apollo Crews
We get a flashback of Triple H forming D-X in March of 1998. We then get a flashback to WrestleMania 31 when Triple H faced Sting.
Andrade and Zelina are arguing backstage and Charly Caruso asks him what happened in the match. Andrade said his partners let him down, and then says that Mysterio, Crews nor Aliester could beat him in a championship match.
Andrade leaves and Crews says that Andrade’s just a sore loser and that he could probably beat him two times in one night if he needed to. Andrade comes back and he challenges that claim, saying that Crews doesn’t deserve a title shot. Crews says he does and slaps Andrade in the face. Zelina tells Crews that since he thinks he’s a big shot now, he’ll get his title match tonight.
We get a video package recapping the Rollins/McIntyre feud and some hype for the contract signing later tonight.
We get another flashback of Triple H, this time of his main event match on the 1st episode of SmackDown against the Rock for the WWF Championship with Shawn Michaels as special guest referee. Then, after commercial break we get another flashback of Stephanie McMahon walking in on Triple H and Trish Stratus.
Asuka vs. Shayna Baszler vs. Nia Jax
The match technically never started, so all three brawl with each other. Eventually, Nia Jax takes a ladder and lays out Shayna and Asuka. Jax stands tall in the middle of the ring.
Lashley and Lana speak backstage and Lashley recommends that Lana stay backstage because he has to focus on taking care of business. But he is sure to compliment on how beautiful she looks and attempts to reconcile. Lana agrees.
Bobby Lashley vs. Denzel Dejournette
Lashley wins easily with a spear.
Winner: Bobby Lashley
We look back at Liv Morgan and Ruby Riot’s match last week. The two will have a rematch next.
We get a plug for WWE 2K: Battleground.
Liv Morgan vs. Ruby Riott
Morgan kicks out of the Riot kick and defeats Ruby again with Oblivion.
Winner: Liv Morgan
After the match, Byron asks if this is the start of a new journey for her. Morgan says right now she feels like a lot a lot of people her age in terms of figuring out who she is and what she wants, but she’s confident she’ll eventually figure it out.
The next Triple H flashback is of him winning the 1997 King of the Ring tournament.
Nia Jax is interviewed backstage and is asked about her actions in her match tonight. Jax asks Charly what she can do about her actions. Nothing. What can Asuka do? Nothing. What can Shayna do? Nothing. What can anyone do about her actions? She yells “Nothing!”.
The Viking Raiders are backstage and they say those who don’t learn from history are doomed to repeat it. They warn the Street Profits that history tells the truth. They say they won the tag titles in NXT because they had to relinquish them and won the RAW Tag Team Titles after they were injured. And they’ve never beaten them. Erik says as long as the Viking Raiders are around, they’ll only be second best and Ivar dares them to prove them wrong. Ivar also adds they want the smoke.
Jinder Mahal returns to RAW next.
The next Triple H flashback is of him leading the NXT roster’s invasion of SmackDown before Survivor Series last November.
Jinder Mahal vs. Akira Tozawa
Jinder wins easily with the Khallas.
Winner: Jinder Mahal
Andrade and Zelina are backstage. Charly attempts to ask a question, but Zelina says she can’t talk to Andrade directly. If she wants a question, she has to go through her first. Both leave.
Garza then comes and puts the moves on Caruso by giving her a rose. Apollo and Andrade for the US Title is up next.
The next Triple H flashback is of him and HBK impersonating Vince and Shane in June of 2006.
Andrade (C) vs. Apollo Crews – United States Championship
Apollo sells a knee injury after attempting a moonsault on the outside, and eventually, after diving from the top rope, Apollo lands on the bad knee again. The referee pulls Andrade back and determines Crews cannot continue and calls the match. Andrade wins by forefit.
The next Triple H flashback shows him introducing Evolution in February of 2003.
The Street Profits respond to the Viking Raiders and Montez Ford implores Dawkins to prove them wrong. Dawkins says he’s free next week, and Ford says he’s free as well. Ford tells them that if it’s the smoke they want, it’s the smoke they’re gonna get. The Viking Raiders’ challenge is accepted.
We get an excerpt of Becky Lynch’s WWE 24 special, showcasing highlights of WrestleMania 35’s main event.
Ricochet and Cedric Alexander vs. Ever-Rise
Ricochet hits a superkick and then Ricochet gets a top rope dropkick into an Alexander DDT for the win.
Winners: Ricochet and Cedric Alexander
After the match, MVP appears on the titantron and congratulates them on the victory. However, the NFL had him thinking and MVP is bringing back Shane Thorne and Brendan Vink. He claims this rematch will be MVP-worthy.
The next Triple H flashback is the invasion of WCW.
We see Apollo Crews backstage on crutches and with ice on his knee. He’s visibly choked up. Caruso interviews him and asks what he’s feeling. Crews can’t say anything and just walks away.
The final HHH highlight is him coming back from a quad injury in 2002.
Jerry Lawler is out to moderate the contract signing between Drew and Seth. Both men arrive, Drew enters and he tells Jerry that he should know how these contract signings usually go, so he advises Jerry to leave. Jerry obliges.
Both men sit, and Drew signs the contract first. He says Seth can get this over with in 20 seconds since he jumped him a few weeks ago. Seth looks at the contract befuddled, and tells Drew that he doesn’t want to do this, but that he has to. Seth admits he started this and that he dropped him to get his attention. He also admits Drew’s a warrior, an honorable man and he’ll make a great champion some day. But he says he’s not a leader, unlike himself.
Seth claims people need someone to guide them and he can be that light in the darkness. He suffered for the WWE Title, and he tells Drew he doesn’t have to. He doesn’t want him to suffer the same way he did. Seth tells Drew the WWE Title is his burden to carry, and not his. He doesn’t want to be the one to crush his dreams, but it’s a sacrifice he’s willing to make for the greater good. One day, all of this will make sense and Seth will explain. He’ll have no problem leading Drew.
Drew thanks Seth for his words, and he says things are clear to him now. He says that it’s clear to him that Seth is full of shit. He asks Seth who is followers are, and that they all turned on him. He doesn’t know what goes in Seth’s head, but he will not allow Seth to win that title under any circumstance. But he’ll give him some advice. First, he advises Seth to shut his mouth, because no one wants to hear what he has to say, and eventually he gets his head stuck so far down his own ass.
The next piece of advice, he advises Seth to do what he couldn’t a couple of weeks ago, and that’s finish the job. He tells Seth to go for his throat, because Drew is coming for his. Seth says the bigger picture will be clear, and Drew will be better off for it. Seth attempts to tell Drew to have faith in him before Drew drops his face onto the table and headbutts him. Drew sets up for the Claymore before Murphy comes out and jumps him from behind. Seth is initially confused, but eventually hugs him. Drew Claymores Murphy from behind and Seth escapes as RAW goes off the air.
