Bayley starts the show previewing her Wrestlemania Fatal Four Way Elimination Match where she’ll be facing Charlotte Flair, Sasha Banks and Nia Jax. Charlotte makes her way to the ring stating that Sasha Banks has been using Bayley to get back into the title picture. Sasha Banks interrupts and says Charlotte needs to switch it up, Nia makes her way to the ring and says she’s tired of all 3 of them (like everyone else).
It was a good build towards the Raw Women’s Match at Wrestlemania and adds something to the match.
After the commercial break Bayley and Sasha are facing Charlotte and Nia in a tag match with Sasha and Charlotte starting the match out, kind of looked like Charlotte blew out her knee early on in the match. Bayley gets the W with the Belly to Belly to Charlotte. Nia after attacks Bayley and Sasha and take out Charlotte. Possibly a preview for Wrestlemania.
Felt kinda long, but solid match where each of the divas get to showcase and sell the Raw women’s match at WM.
Video of Seth Rollins who returned to Raw a few weeks ago and got into it with Triple H possibly re-injuring himself.
Hall of Fame segment featuring those that will be inducted into the Hall of Fame this Saturday.
Next a recap of Stephanie firing Mick Foley last week and a backstage interview with Sami Zayn and his announcement he’ll be entering in the Andre the Giant Battle Royal before Stephanie states she’ll need to earn his right into the match by facing Kevin Owens in a No DQ Match.
Second match of the night features the 205 Live Cruiserweights Noam Dar and Austin Aries with King of the Cruiserweights Neville on commentary. Aries starts the match with a dropkick to the face of Dar before being knocked out of the ring with Aries pointing at Neville who he’ll be facing at Wrestlemania for the CW Title. Alicia Fox distracted Aries briefly but Aries still hits a Discus Five-arm and his submission manuever ‘The Last Chancery’. Aries and Neville get into a staredown before the commercial break.
Mainly a match to hype Austin Aries match vs Neville but show of the Cruiserweights who put on good matches.
Another brief Undertaker promo with Michael Cole asking if The Undertaker is digging another grave for his Wrestlemania opponent Roman Reigns.
Seth Rollins crutches down to the ring to sign the contract for his match at Wrestlemania against Triple H and calls him out. Triple H explains that if he is attacked by Seth before Wrestlemania he can’t be held accountable for what happens to him, Triple H states that if Seth is ‘broken’ by Triple H that Seth can’t sue him, his wife or the company, after Seth signs Triple H get into it. Contract signed for a ‘Non-Sanctioned match’ at Wrestlemania.
Triple H cut a good promo and Seth’s talk about working in an armory in the indy’s is the same thing we’ve been hearing from the past few years of guys not made by the E.
After the commercial break an Over the Top-Rope match is announced, The Big Show and Jinder Mahal make their way to the ring with Mahal quickly tossed over the ring, next to the ring is Bo Dallas who hasn’t been seen in months is tossed out and the Shining Stars both make their ring and are both tossed out at the same time. Brawl ensues and R-Truth, Goldust, Curtis Axel also in the ring. Braun Strowman’s music hits and cuts a promo on the Big Show.
This was a display of who will be featured for the Raw half of the Andre The Giant Battle Royal.
Gallows & Anderson shoot a backstage segment mocking Enzo and Cass.
New Day segment.
Sheamus and Cesaro are briefly interviewed before being attacked by Gallows & Anderson with a 2×4 and are then hit with a ladder. Hinting at possibly a stipulation being added at Wrestlemania.
After the commercial break, ‘kKing of the Cruiserweights Neville’ makes his way to the ring. He is facing Gentleman Jack Gallagher.
Stiff Cruiserweights match again and Jack’s headbutts always look brutal.
Austin Aries cuts Neville’s match victory celebration short with a backstage promo with the New Day.
Good way of keeping The New Day from appearing on the ramp or the ring to avoid the Paige Chants.
Roman Reigns makes his way to the ring and cuts a promo stating that he’s headlined two Wrestlemania’s now and it’s his yard now. The Undertaker’s bell hits and we next seem digging a grave and states that for over 20 years The Undertaker has made the WWE Ring his Yard and that the hole he’s digging for Roman will be his yard after Wrestlemania. The video promo cuts and the lights go out and The Undertaker raises his arm with his bell and the lights fade out.
Could have done more but i’m hype for their match at WM.
Enzo and Cass cut promo before their match against Anderson & Gallows. Anderson & Gallows attacked by Cesaro/Sheamus. Ladders used during the segment. Sheamus ended up getting cut open at some point.
Likely a ladder match stipulation added at Wrestlemania.
Wrestlemania promo package.
Kevin Owens makes his way to the ring for his match in a No Disqualification Match against Sami Zayn, after the commercial break Zayn makes his way to the ring and the match starts out going back and forth and brawl throughout the match inside and outside the ring, brawling out into the crowd and Owens tossing Zayn into the announce table, after the commerical break we see Owens DDT’d into the steps and slamming himself onto Zayn outside the ring. Zayn hits a Blue Thunder Bomb for a near 3 count, Samoa Joe makes his way to the ring grabbing a chair, Jerichos music hits and attacks Joe from the back after making his way through the crowd. Zayn rolls up Owens keeping his job and catching the win.
For Raw by now a pretty standard grudge match between KO/Zayn but built angle around Zayn keeping his job, KO/Jericho at Wrestlemania.
Jericho cuts a promo and asks if Owens knows what happens when he betrays him, he makes THE LIST!
Brock Lesnar’s music hits and he makes his way down to the ring with Paul Heyman. Heyman cuts a promo and says he’ll be ending Goldberg’s Ultimate Thrill Ride at Wrestlemania and he won’t survive the F5, Goldberg makes his way to the ring and says the people came to see them fight, not talk. Lesnar charges at Goldberg but cut short with a spear and holds the title in the ring ending the show.
