WWE Monday Night Raw Results – April 9, 2018: Fallout From WrestleMania


Elias is in the ring and he is going to perform for us, but he wants to know who wants to walk with him.

He says after last night it is an undenaible fact that WWE stands for Walk with Elias.  In one year he has become the biggest musical act on the planet.  Last night, you paid to see an Elias performance but it was interrupted.  Elias says he is going to perform tonight, but it is the same unappreciative crowd full of scumbags as last night.  Elias appreciates that the crowd appreciates their status.

We are back and we are told that Brock Lesnar has signed a contract extension.

Brock Lesnar will face Roman Reigns for the Universal Title in a steel cage in Jedda, Saudi Arabia.

Roman Reigns makes his way to the ring.

Roman says he got his ass kicked last night.  He says he is here tonight.  He says that Brock Lesnar isn’t.  Roman says he doesn’t know what happened yesterday.  Everything felt off yesterday.  What eats him up the most is that Vince McMahon couldn’t even look him in the eye and smarten him up.  Brock is one hell of a businessman.  On Wednesday, he was going back to UFC and then today he signed a new WWE Contract.  Roman says he has a steel cage match against Brock he didn’t know about until he saw it on the internet.  If they continue to put him in matches with Brock Lesnar, the story will end with him as Universal Champion.

Samoa Joe’s music plays and he makes his way to the stage.

Joe says it is time to bring out the tinfoil hats because Roman thinks there is a conspiracy.  Joe brings Roman back to reality.  Brock didn’t just beat you, he exposed you.  For over a year, you came out and said you were the only one who could beat Brock Lesnar.  The reality is that no matter how many whispers you heard, you failed.  That makes you a failure.  Joe says it makes you a liar.  You lied to these fans.  You lied to your family.  You lied to yourself.  Every time you and Brock Lesnar get in the ring together, you get jacked up.  You get put through tables and carried out on stretchers.  You get broken while Brock gets richer.

No matter how many times we hear the story, when the Big Dog faces the Beast, he will conquer you and you will make excuses.  After Brock is done with you again and you fail, Joe says he will be waiting for Roman at Backlash.

We go to commercial.
