WWE Monday Night Raw Results – April 17 2017

Will Roman Reigns return tonight for revenge on Braun Strowman? Also, Samoa Joe and Seth Rollins continue to butt heads and WWE is teasing Elias Samson's debut!

Welcome everyone to another edition of Monday Night Raw!

Last week, Braun Strowman went full-on Michael Myers and murdered Roman Reigns. We were told that night that Roman has suffered a separated shoulder, cracked ribs, and internal injuries, and yet he returned to action at a house show the other night and attacked Strowman. It’s unclear if Reigns will be on Raw tonight, he shouldn’t be for logic’s sense, but I wouldn’t be surprised to see him show-up. If he doesn’t appear, I’m not sure what Strowman will do.

Also on last week’s show, Alexa Bliss and Mickie James debuted on Raw, while Charlotte moved to SmackDown. This provided a much-needed shake-up to the division, no pun intended, although Nia Jax still ran through everyone. Rumour has it that we’ll be getting another multi-woman match for Bayley’s Women’s Championship at Payback, with Bliss, James, Jax and Banks, all looking to take part.

Elsewhere, the tag team division is finally heating up with The Hardy Boyz facing Sheamus and Cesaro, while The Revival look set to face Enzo & Big Cass or The Club. After beating The New Day two weeks in a row, before the group moved to SmackDown, The Revival are the team with the most momentum right now. During a tag team match last week, Elias Samson was seen on the ramp, and then drifting through the crowd in a great shot, and WWE.com is teasing his debut on Raw tonight. Samson lost a match against Kassius Ohno in NXT, forcing him to leave the brand.

And then there’s Seth Rollins, who was attacked by Samoa Joe at the end of last week’s show. These two are finally set to collide after their proposed match before WrestleMania had to be scrapped. This could be a really great match, one which Joe should win since he hasn’t had anything to do since debuting. All this and lots more to look forward to on tonight’s show. Let us know what you’re most excited about, or angry, check out the Ringside News app, and enjoy the show!

  • Kyle Barbosa

    so, here’s the conclusion I have come to about Strowman…..he can do ALL THAT to Reigns in less than 10 minutes, but he can’t pin Sami Zayn in 10 minutes?

    • Amos Cheek

      Blame #WWELogic

      • Kyle Barbosa

        Totally ruins anything badass about him

    • L. Knight

      Well, remember, he had many chances to end that match, he just chose to play around.

  • Kyle Barbosa

    And of course this dumbass crowd has to cheer him because now all of a sudden they like him, when before when he was penciled in to face Taker, it was “NO! HE CAN’T! HE’S NOT READY!”

    • Amos Cheek

      That was before his awesome match with Big Show.

      • Kyle Barbosa

        I’m no genius, but I’m almost positive they had a match when The Wyatts faced the big men

        • Amos Cheek

          I’m talking about their last one.

          • Kyle Barbosa

            Ik but still, when they had a match before, everyone was like “fuck big men”, but now all of a sudden Strowman is great

          • Amos Cheek

            Hey.I admit that I said he was to green as well.But once you have a match like that with Big Show,then you must be getting your shit together.

          • Kyle Barbosa

            They had the same match tho….literally, people only care now because shock be it, he’s feuding with Roman

          • Amos Cheek

            That’s not why I do.Other,maybe.But I have been warming up to him for a while.He has had a proper build with the exception of a midcard title run.But if you are someone of his stature and brutality,that is a moot point.

  • Philip Manley

    Roman’s backstage.

  • Kyle Barbosa

    Lmao no Strowman, it’s gonna be your funeral

  • Philip Manley

    Braun needs a Paul Heyman

    • Amos Cheek

      Have them face each other with Heyman turning on Brock would be an awesome story.

  • Kyle Barbosa

    JUST GIVE HIM A MATCH KURT! FOR GOD SAKES, HE’S GONNA GO AFTER HAWKINS!

    • Ivan

      no one will care if he goes after a nobody like hawkings

  • Kyle Barbosa

    MizTV Is still a thing???

  • Dave Johnston

    Just came in for the comments. Playoff hockey is more enjoyable than Raw ever will be.

  • Kyle Barbosa

    So we do realize the main event has to be Strowman and Reigns right? At the PPV? Not the House of Horrors bullshit? Because if it is, how stupid can this fucking brandsplit be

    • Amos Cheek

      Like I said in another post.It’s sad when the top two championship matches on a Raw ppv are for Smackdown titles.

  • Kyle Barbosa

    So what is the story between Flying Potato Head and Seth Rollins?

    • Amos Cheek

      He’s the one who injured Rollins putting his revenge against HHH in jeopardy.

      • Kyle Barbosa

        I won’t even accept that because they didn’t plan for that injury

        • Amos Cheek

          Some of the best storylines come from unplanned injuries.Good example was the Austin Mcmahon feud.

          • Kyle Barbosa

            But that was a feud with people that the fans actually cared about. Nobody cares about Samoa Joe except the hardcore fans

          • Amos Cheek

            Apples and oranges.Quit your bitchin’…lol

  • Kyle Barbosa

    WAIT A MINUTE, HOW DID THEY AGREE TO THIS? I understand the Superstar Shakeup, but why would Kurt Angle agree to the “if Jericho wins, he goes to Smackdown” stipulation?

    • Amos Cheek

      They had to have a mid card title on Smackdown and since the match was already signed when the Owens was shipped off.there really wasn’t much other choice.

      • Kyle Barbosa

        They don’t “need” it, and even if they did, that’s why they just have the champ retain anyways. Adding the stipulation just causes false drama and makes Kurt Angle look stupid

  • Kyle Barbosa

    Way to make Jericho look credible heading into the title match, especially when joe is losing to Rollins at the PPV anyways

    • Amos Cheek

      He’s getting ready to take a break and Joe needs the build up.

      • Kyle Barbosa

        Rollins, is, beating, him, at, the, PPV, guaranteed. And if he doesn’t lose, he’s just gonna cheat to win

  • Kyle Barbosa

    Yep Joe, go ahead and yell to try and have some charisma

  • Kyle Barbosa

    AHHH ITS VERAAAAY PERSONAL JAWN!

  • Kyle Barbosa

    Who did I say? Hawkins? Truth and Goldust are like on the same scale as him, right?

    • Amos Cheek

      The nights not over.It’s just getting started.

  • Philip Manley

    Beware of Braun.

  • Kyle Barbosa

    So The Club is gonna come out and laugh like a couple goofs, claiming they now have no one to face, then The Hardys or Cesaro and Sheamus come out

  • Amos Cheek

    And just like that,Kyle is jumping for joy.

    • Kyle Barbosa

      I’m actually jumping off a cliff

      • Amos Cheek

        Remember not to try and reach out for anything to grab a hold of.

  • Kyle Barbosa

    Glad to see we have a contender for “Botch Fest” of the year

  • Kyle Barbosa

    I hope to god that’s not the main event….

    • Amos Cheek

      Probably is.

      • Kyle Barbosa

        All for Nia Jax to win and have ANOTHER match with Bayley…

        • Amos Cheek

          More than likely.

          • Amos Cheek

            But you’ll still watch.Even if you tell us you’re not we all know you will.

  • Philip Manley

    Miz and Maryse aka Mr and Mrs Annoying.

  • joegvo

    Doomsday, Lex Luthor, the Penguin, & the Joker are all in Metropolis

    • Amos Cheek

      The Joker and Penguin are in Gotham…lol

      • joegvo

        The Joker’s in the ring right now & the Penguin has been with Doomsday since 2012.

        • Amos Cheek

          I am a little slow tonight.

      • Amos Cheek

        Nevermind.I get it now…lol

  • Amos Cheek

    Miz is getting the IC title back.

    • Kyle Barbosa

      It’s that time of the year

  • Philip Manley

    Renée and Dean against Miz and Maryse in a falls count anywhere match.

    • Amos Cheek

      An Buckeye/Canadian mixed tag.

  • Amos Cheek

    I hope this match is as good as the last one.

    • Philip Manley

      They probably rigged the ring to fall apart.

      • Amos Cheek

        I wouldn’t doubt it.

  • Dave Johnston

    Am I missing anything good?

    • Dave Johnston

      Guess not lol

      • Amos Cheek

        Nope.

        • Dave Johnston

          I did say the hockey playoffs was so much better than RAW. Toronto and Washington, tied 3-3, 16 seconds left in 3rd lol. Might be third game to ot for them

          • Dave Johnston

            overtime now dammit

  • Amos Cheek

    Broken Matt is trying so hard to rear his head.

  • Amos Cheek

    Hey Kyle.IT’S NOT THE MAIN EVENT !!!!

    • Kyle Barbosa

      It’s right now????

      • Amos Cheek

        Yep.I believe it is.

        • Amos Cheek

          That means Strowman vs Show is the main event.

  • Dave Johnston

    This is a very quiet group. Raw must be really boring tonight

    • Amos Cheek

      It wasn’t that quite earlier.

      • Amos Cheek

        Everyone just stopped talking.

        • Dave Johnston

          My hockey game is over now. Now to get bored with Raw lol

  • Amos Cheek

    HOLY SHIT!!!!! I really thought Nia was going to win.

    • Dave Johnston

      Who did

      • Amos Cheek

        Who what?…lol

        • Dave Johnston

          Won. The message above tells me lol

  • Philip Manley

    Alexa’s going to have a shiny new belt.

  • Dave Johnston

    Is she actually that damn short. Looks like a child next to show lol

  • Kyle Barbosa

    Did Alexa win?????

    • Amos Cheek

      Yeah

      • Kyle Barbosa

        Jesus Christ….

        • Amos Cheek

          Why’d you ask?We all know you were sitting there with a sock in one hand watching the match…HAHAHAHA

          • Kyle Barbosa

            No I actually wasn’t. I have been skipping the 2nd hour of Raw for like the past 4 weeks now, don’t you notice it being much quieter at 9?

          • Amos Cheek

            Now that you mention it.There has been a little peace in the force around that time on Mondays lately.

          • Kyle Barbosa

            Big Brother Canada is a much better show, with real people actually showing real character

          • Dave Johnston

            That bs is more scripted than the WWE

          • Kyle Barbosa

            And it’s so much better. What does that say about WWE?

          • Dave Johnston

            It is boring as shit. I would watch Raw from start to finish before watching a single episode of that crap.

          • Kyle Barbosa

            The difference is people actually hate each other and I can actually feel like they hate each other. On Raw, it’s “personal” between Rollins and Joe, but I don’t feel any hatred between the two

          • Dave Johnston

            There is nothing real on big brother. They are told to act like that. Everything they do on any reality show is all an act. Nothing real. Pure bullshit. At least everybody knows wrestling is scripted, but when you actually think that people hate each other on a stupid reality show, shows you aren’t thinking straight.

          • Kyle Barbosa

            I feel like they do, which means they are better actors than of these wrestlers are

          • Dave Johnston

            oh bullshit. If you think they can act, you had better watch something else. Their reactions to anything makes wrestlers deserve an Oscar

    • Philip Manley

      Yep

  • Kyle Barbosa

    Ok honestly, Curt Hawkins is a great jobber heel

  • Kyle Barbosa

    So we don’t care that he has a concussion??????

    • Amos Cheek

      Must have passed th iMPACT test.

  • Kyle Barbosa

    And that reaction was terrible

  • Kyle Barbosa

    I hope this queer hurts himself again

    • Dave Johnston

      I’m fine with you ‘playing’ the heel in here, but to wish actual injury on someone, and including a homophobic comment, is below even you. Unnecessary and unwanted

      • Kyle Barbosa

        Don’t care. Balor is worse than Cancer. And the fact he just got hurt and is wrestling still is just begging for more damage

        • Dave Johnston

          No, people who make comments like that are worse than Cancer.

          • Kyle Barbosa

            I am pretty bad

          • Dave Johnston

            No, you are sad

      • Amos Cheek

        I feel your pain on this one man.

  • Kyle Barbosa

    Balor looks all kind of fucked up, seriously, look at him

  • Kyle Barbosa

    Who the fuck is that?????

  • Kyle Barbosa

    OH MY GOD STOP THIS RESPECT SHIT

  • Amos Cheek

    LOL…Velocity,Sunday Night Heat.Priceless.

  • Kyle Barbosa

    I hope they find this funny

  • Kyle Barbosa

    They’re already making Elias Samson look like an idiot

  • Kyle Barbosa

    OH MY GOD! SCARY!

  • Kyle Barbosa

    I was going over his career today, and I don’t think any “big name guy” has had a worst career in just 3 years than Bray Wyatt

    • Amos Cheek

      Probably not.It has been pretty bad for such a great character.

      • Kyle Barbosa

        He had so much hope to, cause his character is so unique and different. But he hasn’t been the same ever since Cena beat him at Mania

        • Amos Cheek

          Agreed.He has been so wasted.It should have been him to put Taker away and carry on that legacy.Just to much damage had been done to do it convincingly.

          • Kyle Barbosa

            If anything, at least I’m entertained when he loses. I just laugh at it now because I know I can never take him seriously ever again

  • Amos Cheek

    Holy crap.They have shown the entire womens roster on one episode.

  • Kyle Barbosa

    Has their been a cruiserfuck match tonight?

    • Amos Cheek

      Yeah.Perkins and Gallagher.

      • Kyle Barbosa

        I heard on an article here that match got “This is boring” chants from the 20fuck crowd

        • Amos Cheek

          Have no clue.I was eating dinner.

          • Kyle Barbosa

            No I mean during the Tuesday show, not tonight. Apparently they did it like last week or something

          • Amos Cheek

            Oh.Don’t even bother reading the results.

          • Kyle Barbosa

            I just read it in that article labeled “205 Live Not Doing Good”

          • Amos Cheek

            Don’t even read articles about 205

          • Kyle Barbosa

            I only read it just to see how bad it’s really doing. They said that more than half the crowd leaves and NXT which is taped does a way better number on the network

          • Amos Cheek

            Sounds about right.This raping of what was once a great division has been brutal.

          • Kyle Barbosa

            It was set to fail the moment they put it on TV. I’m sorry, but the cruiserweights belong on the network, nowhere else

  • Amos Cheek

    Gratuitous product placement.

  • Kyle Barbosa

    So awesome to see how in just two weeks, the hardys are nowhere near as over as before

  • Amos Cheek

    You can tell Jeff has lost quite a few steps.

  • Amos Cheek

    Where the hell have Christopher,Mike and Bossman been tonight?

    • Kyle Barbosa

      1. Fuck Chris, nobody likes him
      2. Mike was affected by the Superstar Shakeup and he’s been drafted to 411Mania
      3. Bossman must be with Stephanie somewhere

      • Amos Cheek

        LMFAO!!!!!

        • Kyle Barbosa

          I feel bad for Mike tbh, nothing but smarks over there at 411mania

          • Amos Cheek

            Me too.I left there years ago.

          • Kyle Barbosa

            This has been my home forever lmao, the only other site I fuck on is “Impactasylum”, but I’m even getting sick over there cause those Impact marks can’t be critical about anything that’s not the JB and Josh feud

          • Amos Cheek

            I am only on here.Have been for ……damn.I can’t even remember for how long now.

          • Kyle Barbosa

            I swear we have been on this site since like 2011, you may have even been here earlier than that. But like, of course this site didn’t matter until I came along

          • Amos Cheek

            Shit son.I made this place great.You just come along picking up breadcrumbs…..lol

            Nah.Seriously,We’ve been her for a long time.

          • Kyle Barbosa

            We’re like fucking DX from Raw 1000 “We’re here for Raw 1000, and we’ll be here when we hit 2000”

          • Amos Cheek

            I’m shooting for RAW 3000.

          • Kyle Barbosa

            If Raw gets that far

          • Mike

            Since this site was also a news site for movies and music, that’s how long!!

    • Mike

      Sorry, I was traveling

  • Kyle Barbosa

    So why is this match happening again?

    • Amos Cheek

      Braun was bullying everyone backstage and Show stopped him and told him to pick on someone his own size,

      • Kyle Barbosa

        Well hopefully he’s proud, because the crowd is literally dead for this match

        • Amos Cheek

          There more into this than anything else except the womens match.

          • Kyle Barbosa

            They’re slowly getting into it now

  • Kyle Barbosa

    Reigns is gonna come out and kill Strowman

    • Amos Cheek

      That would literally be the dumbest thing WWE could do right now.

  • Philip Manley

    Was that girl in the crowd actually crying?

    • Amos Cheek

      Probably stock footage…lol

  • Kyle Barbosa

    Gee…how do I say this nicely….YOU CANT FUCKING DO THIS! YOU HAD THIS SAME MATCH WEEKS AGO! YOU CAN’T REACT LIKE YOU’VE NEVER SEEN IT BEFORE CAUSE YOU HAVE

  • Amos Cheek

    And there it is.

  • Kyle Barbosa

    This isn’t cool anymore…

    • Amos Cheek

      They’ve been teasing it for ten minutes.

      • Kyle Barbosa

        The spot in general is stupid now. They react like it’s never happened before all the time, when it literally just happened like a year ago if I’m not mistaking

  • Kyle Barbosa

    But Sami Zayn can keep him down for 3 minutes by avoiding him

    • ScottyPNR

      He must’ve been trained by Floyd mayweather.. All he does is run in the ring for 12 rounds. He’s afraid of getting hit too hard to hurt pretty boy face.

  • Philip Manley

    Next Monday their going to detonate the ring instead

  • Kyle Barbosa

    So next week they’ll fucking get officials to tap the ring so they can say they “reinforced” it, then they’ll have another fucking match

    • ScottyPNR

      Stroman is so bad at selling. You’re right they had the ring collapse with mark Henry vs Brock and Henry vs show. Show vs Brock. (Was the first time. The best “ring collapse” was was big show choke slamming undertaker on raw is war. And also on an ecw original ppv. Bam bam bigelow vs taz I think. They tarped off a corner of the ring and the show went on.

  • Herb

    I would have liked for Braun to pin the big show after the carnage, but oh well.

  • ScottyPNR

    Are they really acting like he deadlifted an ambulance?
