Monday Night Raw April 9, 2018 Results and Review

Miz Is Raw - SRC WWE
Monday Night Raw after Wrestlemania is usually a good thing, and honestly, it didn’t feel like it was 9 hours long for a change. Let’s consider the Monday Night Raw after Wrestlemania here before I get to Ring of Honor and Joey Janela’s Spring Break 2.

Monday Night Raw April 9, 2018 Results and Review

The opening of the show had Stephanie McMahon trolling the audience and then introducing Ronda Rousey. Rousey showed up and then put McMahon into an armbar and got her to tap again, and it got the crowd going nuts.

Nia Jax and Ember Moon defeated Alexa Bliss and Mickie James

This was an incredible match that showcased Ember Moon’s skills, and really made Jax look good too. Ok, incredible is a bit much, but I’m still high from the NXT Takeover show. Good overall match, not a long one, but enough to get Ember Moon over as a newcomer.

No Way Jose defeated a Jobber

No Way Jose beat a jobber and danced. I liked it.

The Revival defeated The Club Sandwich Boys in a Tag Team Eliminator Match

There’s a tournament for the number one contenders to the titles, and the Revival fought their long time rivals the Club Sandwich boys. The Revival won after they hit their finale, and that was that. It was a short match with a fast finish and that’s it.

The Miz, Seth Rollins, and Finn Balor were talking in the ring and Jeff Hardy showed up, making a match for later. This wasn’t bad, but it was more talking.

Mandy Rose defeated Sasha Banks

This wasn’t bad, Mandy Rose was able to beat Sasha Banks thanks to Bayley’s outside interference, and that was that.

Bobby Lashley attacked Elias

Elias showed up and sang a bit before Bobby Lashley showed up and beat him down and that was that. Nice to see Lashley back, that’s for sure.

The Authors of Pain defeated Heath Slater and Rhyno

This was a burial, nothing more. I can’t believe how far the former Smackdown Champions have fallen.

Samoa Joe cut a promo on Roman Reigns


Matt Hardy and Bray Wyatt defeated Titus Worldwide in a Tag Team Eliminator Match

We very well may see Matt Hardy and Bray Wyatt get the tag team titles next. The two are now Woken and are a team, and they beat up Titus Worldwide in a short match.

Kevin Owens vs. Sami Zayn ended in a No Contest

This was interesting, as the winner will get a job on Raw. Neither won, as there was a double 10 count loss, and while the match was good as per usual, the ending was kind of dumb.

Seth Rollins, Finn Balor, and Jeff Hardy defeated The Miz and The Miztourage

A great match this was not. It was good, but not great. The good guys flew through the ring and controlled a lot of it, including Jeff Hardy throwing down all of his moves and getting the crowd to go completely nuts for the tag team work that the guys did here. The Miz and Miztourage lose again.

Overall, Raw wasn’t too bad, and it was better than most weeks. However, it’s not something that I loved, and it didn’t have the same gusto that you’d get with other nights after Mania. It was good though, don’t get me wrong.
