WWE Raw Results – April 29, 2019

Welcome to Monday Night Raw for the final time…in April 2019.

Tonight’s show will see Alexa Bliss (inexplicably) reveal the participants for the Men and Women’s Money In The Bank matches. Well, on the Raw side at least. It’s hard to say who will be chosen but my guesses are Drew McIntyre, Baron Corbin, Ricochet, and The Miz. Although it wouldn’t be surprising to see Bobby Lashley, Sami Zayn, or Samoa Joe in there. As for the women’s match, I’m guessing Dana Brooke, Naomi, and Ruby Riott.

Elsewhere on tonight’s Raw, we get the first proper build towards Seth Rollins Vs. AJ Styles for the Universal Championship. This feud is a little surprising because it either results in AJ’s stock being hurt by losing, or Seth dropping the title quickly. Especially considering it’s two babyfaces. A first opponent for Seth should probably have been someone like Lashley or Corbin, but at least these two should produce awesome matches.

And then there’s Bray Wyatt. Last week we saw Bray Wyatt return to Raw in the first ever Firefly Fun House segment. Bray was re-introduced as a creepy Mister Rogers type and it was glorious. I, like most others, shrinked away from the screen as soon as it came on and had no idea what to think. But by the end I was hooked. The more it sinks in the more it seems like a stroke of absolute genius. It remains to be seen where it goes from here and if WWE even stick with it, but fingers crossed it redeems Wyatt.

And that’s the preview for tonight’s Raw. Let us know what you’re excited to see by downloading the Ringside News app and following us on Instagram. Enjoy the show!

Monday Night Raw

Raw opens with Alexa Bliss making her way out to the ring. She gets cheered by the fans before welcoming us to A Moment of Bliss. She reminds us that Money In The Bank is just under three weeks away.

This year’s event will once again feature two ladder matches consisting of eight men and eight women. She introduces the first Superstar participating in the men’s match:

Braun, the winner of last year’s match, comes to the ring. The second participant is Ricochet, while the third and fourth are Drew McIntyre and Baron Corbin. The former Raw General Manager walks to the ring, listing off his accomplishments. He reminds us that he has won the briefcase before, but Ricochet reminds him he failed at cashing in. McIntyre says that’s true, and Corbin lost to AJ Styles last week. He’s sick of outside forces costing him the big time. Ricochet tries to interrupt but McIntyre tells him to leave the business talk to the grown-ups. McIntyre accuses Corbin of stealing his opportunities and tells him he will drop him.

Strowman tells them both to shut up and says none of them have what it takes to stop him. Nothing will stop the monster in the bank. He says it’s time for a little preview, so why don’t they have a tag match right now. All four men ready for a fight as we head to the break.

The Uso’s come to the ring full of piss and vinegar and their music stops but they look confused. Their music begins again and they try to get the fans singing along as they head to the break.

*Commercial Break*

The good brothers make their way to the ring after the break, and cut a terrible promo about beating The Uso’s.

Winners: The Uso’s

After the match The Uso’s show us a video of them backstage earlier today, in which they spy on The Revival shaving each other. They make fun of them but then Dash and Dawson come out onto the stage. Dawson says he and Dash are men and that means he has some body hair and considering his size, it’s scientifically impossible for him to reach his back. So he has no shame in asking his best friend of 20+ years for a little help. They call The Uso’s sick freaks and say they’re done with them for now, because they have a match later tonight.

Still to come, Rey Mysterio Vs. Samoa Joe, as well as Seth Rollins and AJ Styles’ contract signing. The Miz makes his way to the ring for MizTV.
