WWE Monday Night Raw Results – April 3 2017

[adace-ad id="652493"]

We’re back live and the WWE Universal Champion, along with his advocate, come to the ring. Heyman introduces them and Brock indicates he has goosebumps. Heyman says Brock has told to relay a bedtime story that he tells his kids.

Once upon a time, there was a man who fancied himself a superhero. And this superhero represented all the things in life that we as a society should stand-up and rebel against; family, tradition, honesty, etc. One day this superhero took his Spear and Jackhammer and go into town. His name was Goldberg and he was known as the baddest dude in the village. All the villagers would run around calling him a bad man. Then Goldberg made the decision to take a turn into Suplex City. A place where all his values are not respected. And what happened? The superhero got his ass kicked by the Beast. But don’t worry kids, this fairytale does end happy; you won’t see Goldberg again. The fans cheer.

Heyman says that leaves us with a predicament, his client is looking for a new challenger and new challenges. Heyman says Seth Rollins and the fans boo. Heyman says Matt Hardy and the fans cheer and chant “Delete”, then Jeff Hardy. Heyman says both Hardy’s could try Brock. Heyman says Brock isn’t going to be the Champion who takes selfies with it because he know it won’t last forever. Brock Lesnar is the disruptor of the status quo. And so it is time to talk about the two, in twenty three and two. Heyman reckons it’s time to determine whose yard this really is.

Heyman starts talking about Reigns but the fans chant for Finn Balor. Heyman asks what happens when Roman Reigns is the big dog and Brock Lesnar is animal cruelty. It’s time give the Raw after WrestleMania crowd something they will never forget. Let’s settle this tonight, let’s figure out whose yard it is. Braun Strowman interrupts.

Strowman walks to the ring. He says he sees that Roman Reigns has his attention, and maybe when he’s done with Reigns, he’ll have Lesnar’s. Strowman says Lesnar has his attention, then pushes Brock away. Lesnar stares at Strowman, then smiles and lays the belt down in front of him. A line to cross. Strowman instead backs-up and walks away.

Charly Caruso interviews Chris Jericho backstage. He says this is one of his favourite nights of the year, and Beach Ball ‘Mania is running wild brother. The fans erupt for that. He calls them his friends, his amigo’s, his mates and asks them to cheer him on maaaan. He says this is the perfect place to get his revenge on that stupid idiot Kevin Owens. And he starts by taking the tip of Kevin Owens’ finger, which saved him from getting beat last night. He’s about to put tip of KO’s finger on the list when Kevin Owens and Samoa Joe appear and beat the crap out of Jericho. They put him through a table.

*Commercial Break*

We return to see Kurt Angle coming out of the trainer’s room. Seth Rollins walks-up and asks how Jericho is. Angle says he’s in no condition to compete tonight but he promises to find a replacement.

Number One Contender’s Match

Enzo Amore & Big Cass Vs. Sheamus & Cesaro

Cesaro starts with a clothesline and attempts another but Enzo counters. Cesaro the suplexes Enzo into his own corner. Enzo makes his way to his corner and tags Cass in while Cesaro tags Sheamus in.

Sheamus plants a weird spinning heel kick to Cass’ gut and dives off the top rope but misses. Cass tags Enzo in and look to hit Sheamus with Air-Enzo. However, he goes the other way and finds Cesaro instead. The duo then go for the Air-Enzo again as they’re opponents stand outside the ring and connect. We go to commercial with the New Yorker’s in charge.

*Commercial Break*

We return to see Cesaro and Sheamus making a comeback. Sheamus picks up Enzo, but the little man hits him with a DDT. The crowd seems to be more into chanting for itself than for what is happening in the ring.

Cesaro swings Enzo around before putting him in the Sharpshooter. They then go for the Air-Enzo but Sheamus stops them. Cesaro connects with a Swiss Upper cut on Enzo and that seems to be enough to get them the win.

Winners: Sheamus & Cesaro

*Commercial Break*

Jinder Mahal Vs. Sami Zayn

Mahal attacks Zayn during his entrance and beats him all around the ring. The bell finally rings and Mahal continues to beat down The Underdog from the Underground. Jinder continues to dominate with a knee to Zayn’s back, followed by a clothesline and knee to the face.

Mahal hits him with a high knee and looks to finish it but Sami hits him with the Exploder suplex into the corner. Sami then finishes it with the Helluva kick.

Winner Sami Zayn

Our main event is up next and who could be Rollins’ partner?

*Commercial Break*

The Supertsar Shake-up will take place next Monday night and will feature Daniel Bryan. No word on Shane. 205 Lie tomorrow night will feature a Fatal 4-Way to determine a new number one contender.

Kevin Owens and Samoa Joe are out first, then Seth comes to the ring. Rollins awaits his partner, who turns out to be…

Samoa Joe & Kevin Owens Vs. Seth Rollins & Finn Balor

We return as the bell rings. Rollins and Owens lock up and trade holds and counters. After a few exchanges, Owens tags in Joe. They run at each other and start brawling, with Joe putting Rollins in the corner and teeing off with rights to the head.

Rollins fires back with chops to the chest but ends up getting put down. Owens is back in to keep Rollins cornered with body shots. Rollins takes control and tags in Balor, who stares Owens down in the middle of the ring. He goes after KO with a flurry of strikes.

Rollins is back in off the tag. Owens tries to roll out of the ring to avoid him, but Rollins takes him out with a suicide dive. Joe helps his partner, so Rollins takes out both of them with a flip over the top rope. He grabs his knee, but gets back up and rolls Owens into the ring.

Owens kicks the knee and hits a DDT to turn things in his favor. The heels keep Rollins cornered for a few minutes, but he eventually tags in a fresh Balor after he escapes the Coquina Clutch.

Balor runs rampant on Owens and Joe until KO drops him with a swinging side slam. Rollins takes out Joe allowing Finn to hit his awesome corner dropkick that sends Owens flying. Balor then finishes off KO with the Coup de Grace for the win.

Winner: Finn Balor & Seth Rollins

After the match Finn and Seth stare at Joe and Owens as they retreat, then stare at each other before Rollins lifts his arm in the air.
