RAW on April Fools Day
Can WrestleMania’s main-event Superstars coexist against The riotttttttttttttttttt Squad?
>The journey to the main event of this year’s WrestleMania main event has grown increasingly complicated in recent weeks, and it hits another sharp turn on Monday night when Raw Women’s Champion Ronda Rousey teams with Stone Cold and new SmackDown Women’s Champion Charlotte Flair to battle The riotttttttttttttttttt Squad in a six-woman tag team bout. If Rousey, Lynch or Flair betray either of their teammates, they will be removed from the Raw Women’s Title main event of this year’s Show of Shows.
>And, yes, you read that right. The Queen defeated Asuka this past Tuesday night to snare the Women’s Title of Team Blue, meaning that she could very well hold two championships when WrestleMania draws to a close. Of course, that match could change drastically — and lose a participant — on Raw.
>With tensions running high, Becky, Ronda and Charlotte will be hard-pressed to work as a team and secure their place in the first-ever Women’s main event of WrestleMania.
Kurt Angle battles Rey Mysterio in his final Raw match
>Two Superstars credited with putting SmackDown on the map in the early 2000s will battle it out one last time, strangely enough, on Monday Night Raw as Kurt Angle faces Rey Mysterio in the final Raw match of his farewell tour.
>The Olympic Hero and The Ultimate Underdog have mixed it up numerous times in the past — including a memorable clash at SummerSlam 2002 — but their final match together on Raw could eclipse their prior confrontations in terms of sheer emotion.
>This will mark Angle’s penultimate match, as he will compete in the ring for one last time against Baron Corbin at WrestleMania. As Angle battles his longtime friend, the bitter Lone Wolf will surely be watching.
Brock Lesnar comes to Raw to extinguish Seth Rollins’ fire
>Seth Rollins laid out Paul Heyman this past Monday night, and he didn’t even need to touch him.
>After the advocate for Universal Champion Brock Lesnar delivered what he thought was a verbal parting shot to “The Beastslayer,” Rollins stormed up the entrance ramp after Heyman, who fell backward in shock and proceeded to beg for mercy from his client’s WrestleMania challenger. With fire in his eyes and the WWE Universe at his back, Rollins affirmed, “We are going to WrestleMania, we are gonna beat Brock Lesnar, we are gonna take the Universal Title and we are gonna march into Suplex City and we are gonna burn it down!”
>How will Lesnar respond to the increasingly emboldened Architect, six nights before their WrestleMania showdown?
Will The Boss ‘N’ Hug Connection regret taking on three teams at WrestleMania?
>WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions Booley & Sasha Banks are warriors, determined to take on any challenger from any brand. But at WrestleMania, The booable one and The Boss have agreed to defend their titles against three powerful teams in Nia Jax & Tamina, Beth Phoenix & Natalya and The IIconics.
>With “The Samoan Slaughterhouse” and the newly reunited “Divas of Doom” representing imposing physical challenges for The Boss ‘N’ Hug Connection, the conniving (and rule-bending) Billie Kay & Peyton Royce represent a psychological obstacle for Booley & Sasha Banks. After all, no one enjoys getting inside the head or under the skin of their opponents quite like The IIconics.
>How are Booley & Sasha Banks preparing for the Fatal 4-Way Match they’ve brought upon themselves?
