WWE Raw Results – April 15, 2019

Elias is in the ring and he plays a little diddy. He says his music is so powerful that it brought back the Doctor of Thuganomics, and it rose the Deadman from his grave. He questions why these legends keep interrupting him, and he says it could be jealousy but he’s fairly sure it’s because they know that WWE stands for Walk With Elias.

Elias says the building is packed and there’s electricity in the air. The fans cheer but then he says they would feel this kind of atmosphere every week if the Canadians could make the playoff’s. The fans boo loudly and don’t let up until he begins playing. Of course, Elias is interrupted, and it’s by Raw’s newest addition:

Rey runs down and into the ring, where he tees off on Elias. The Drifter tosses him through the ropes, where Rey kicks him, before messing up a springboard. Elias rolls from the ring and Rey hit him with a baseball slide. Elias hightailed it out of there and Rey poses for the fans. That is, until Lars Sullivan makes his way down to the ring.

Mysterio dropkicks Lars off of the apron but then the big man comes inside. Rey kicks Sullivan several times as he ran at him in the corner. Lars pulled Rey from the apron into the ring, then lifted him onto his shoulder. Mysterio slid down his back and attacked the leg. Sullivan lifted Rey again and hit his modified STO, before hitting him with a running sit-out powerbomb.

A six-man tag match is still to come in the main event tonight, as well as Becky Lynch Vs. Ruby Riott.

*Commercial Break*

Bobby Roode and Chad Gable are in the ring. Roode says tonight is the Superstar Shake-Up and there’s a lot of changes happening around here. One thing that won’t be changing however, is that when he and Gable are on their game, they can defeat any tag team in WWE. Gable agrees and says he doesn’t care if you’re from Raw, SmackDown, or NXT, the invitation is wide open. Their opponents?

Gable & Roode Vs. The Uso’s

Jimmy will start against Gable. They circle the ring and Gable takes Jimmy down with a waistlock. They separate, then Gable takes him down a second time before applying an arm bar. Jimmy fights to his feet and backs him Chad to the corner. Jimmy then catches him with an enzuigiri.

Jey Uso tags in and punches Gable. He looks to whip Gable but it’s reversed. Jey knocks Roode off the apron, then tosses Gable out of the ring. Jey feigns a plancha, but Roode grabs the feet and Gable knocks him out of the ring. Roode clotheslines him on the floor. Roode tags in and throws Jey into the barricade.

Roode gets Jey back in the ring for a two count. Roode punches away at Jey before tagging Gable in. The crowd chants, “Let’s go Usos.” Gable gets Jey in the corner and tags Roode in. Roode applies a chin lock, but Jey eventually fights up and hits him with a spin kick. Both men are down and looking to their corners.

Jimmy and Gable are tagged in. Jimmy clotheslines him twice before kicking him in the midsection and hitting an uppercut. Jimmy hit a Samoan Drop before catching him with a running hip attack for a near fall. Gable quickly comes back with an arm bar over the top rope. Roode and Gable hit a German Suplex/Blockbuster double-team for a near fall.

Roode knocks Jey off the apron, then he and Gable look for a neckbreaker/moonsault double-team but Jimmy escapes. Jey tags in and superkicks Gable. Roode is then superkicked to the floor. The Usos then hit a double superkick on Gable before scaling opposite corners and hitting6 stereo splashes on Gable for the win.

Winners: The Uso’s

We see a video of Roman Reigns and Drew McIntyre’s rivalry. The two of them will be part of the six-man tag match tonight.

After the break, we’ll get A Moment of Bliss with Montreal’s own, Sami Zayn.

*Commercial Break*

Alexa Bliss is on the stage and she says with the Superstar Shake-Up, this could very well be her last night on Raw. With that in mind, she’d like to give a French goodbye and who better to help her with that, than her guest tonight, Sami Zayn? Montreal gives the hometown boy a huge reception and Zayn dances like a fool on the stage. He sits down opposite Alexa. Then his music kicks up again and Sami goes back to dancing and encouraging the fans to sing along. He sits down again and Alexa says “what a reception!” The fans chant “Sami”.

Just as he readies to talk, his music hits and Sami slides out of his chair like liquid and dances to the fans singing. He says they’re like fish in a barrel and tells Alexa to watch this, then he proceeds to yell something in French-Canadian. He then shouts “ole ole ole” and the fans erupt in voice with him. Sami runs up and down the ramp to the chorus of Ole. He stops and sits down on the stage again. Bliss says he returned last week after 10 months out, and it’s fantastic to see him back on Raw.

The fans chant “oui” and Zayn says it’s been great to be back, to see his family, friends, to go to his neighbourhood, hit up the cafe’s, and such. He loves the city of Montreal but he can’t stand the people. Montreal has world class cuisine, art, architecture, but the people, oh god! He says the low point of his week in Montreal is right now, being around the gross Quebec natives. He says he doesn’t want to be here or doing her show, and it’s funny because 9 months ago he would have loved for that response. Now the cheers make him sick. The fans then fire-up a “Kevin Owens” chant. Zayn says that makes him even more sick, because they just project all their anger and failure onto him. And he doesn’t accept it, and they should be ashamed of themselves.

Alexa says she knows Sami thinks everyone critiques him, but is it really that he is so perfect? However that’s not the problem, he is. She asks if he’s saying his people are the problem. Sami says he was born in Montreal, but they are not his people. He left Montreal and moved to sunny Florida. He chose to leave Montreal years ago, and he’s leaving again. The fans sing “goodbye” to him. He says “yeah, see you in Hell” and leaves.

*Commercial Break*

The WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions are in the ring. We see a video of Bayley on the phone backstage, trying to call Sasha Banks. The Iiconics interrupt her and start making fun, so Bayley tells them she’ll find a partner to face them.

The Iiconics Vs. Bayley & Naomi

Bayley starts with Billie Kay and attacks her before tagging Naomi, fresh from SmackDown Live. Kay floors Naomi with a big forearm to the back and tags Peyton.

Royce wildly attacks Naomi in the corner and applies a sleeper hold. The Iiconics will face a new team on SmackDown Live tomorrow night, so I guess the Women’s Tag Team Champions will be on all shows. Royce and Kay look to double team Naomi, but she fires back with a kick to Kay. Bayley hits the Bayley-to-Belly to Peyton, while Naomi hits a split-legged moonsault to Kay for the win.

Winners: Bayley & Naomi

We see a recap of the WrestleMania main event – with the controversial three count literally blacked out. Lynch will face Ruby Riott later tonight.

EC3 makes his entrance, and he’ll be in action against a new star next.

*Commercial Break*
