WWE Monday Night Raw Results – April 10 2017

290 Comments

Seth says it feels great to be out here with the fans. He didn’t know if he would make it back, he put everything into WrestleMania and didn’t think beyond it. He says after his war with Triple H, he was in more pain than ever before. But mentally he was at peace because he left it all in the ring and he did it, they did it, they slayed the King of Kings!

The fans start chanting for Seth and he thanks them. He says WrestleMania was not the finish line, he has a ton of unfinished business here on Monday Night Raw. His first issue is Samoa Joe, then he wants the Universal Championship. However, because of what happened at WrestleMania – Stephanie being put through the table – he might not get any opportunities. The fans chant “thank you Seth”.

He says he probably won’t be named employee of the month, and Stephanie will be even angrier when she returns. She will make his life hell. He says the easy thing would be for him to pack his bags and move to SmackDown Live. But he took the easy way before but he will not do it again. That is not the kind of man he is, not the man he wants to be. So if they want him to move to SmackDown, they will need to bring an army because he isn’t leaving Monday Night Raw without a fight.

Kurt Angle comes to the ring. He says it’s true, Stephanie wants him gone. And if they had that conversation before WrestleMania, he would be gone. However at WrestleMania Seth was the one legged man who won an ass-kicking contest. Angle says he doesn’t play politics, he wants to have the best show, and that show has Seth Freakin’ Rollins. And as long as he is GM, Seth has a place on Monday Night Raw!

Angle leaves and Samoa Joe attacks Rollins from behind. Angle returns to the ring and does his best to separate the two but they keep brawling and Seth manages to clear Joe from the ring. Rollins goads Joe to come back to the ring but he won’t.

We go backstage for an interview between Kevin Owens and Charly Caruso. She says Seth is staying on Raw, and Ambrose is now here, so how wil the shake-up affect him. KO says that they can shake-up as much as they want but the cream always rises to the top. He tells her to go find Chris Jericho and ask how it’s affecting him because maybe moving to SmackDown he could find some success. Owens gloats about the powerbomb through the table last week, then says he is the face of America. Charly again asks about Ambrose and the Intercontinental Championship, to which Owens says Ambrose can act as goofy as he wants, so long as he remembers his place. Should he not remember that, he will beat the crap out of him and prove that he is the premier athlete on Raw.

Charlotte makes her way to the ring for a match and we see what happened after the tag team match last week, in which Nia Jax destroyed Charlotte.
