14 Comments

Welcome to Ringside News’ live results for WWE RAW on April 20th.

Tonight’s show will feature three qualifying matches for the Money In The Bank ladder match. Those include Apollo Crews Vs. MVP, Aleister Black Vs. Austin Theory, and Rey Mysterio Vs. Murphy. Hopefully these matches get lots of time to breathe like Black Vs. Crews from two weeks ago.

The only other thing we know about tonight’s RAW is that Drew McIntyre will respond to being attacked by Seth Rollins last week. This new feud will likely result in a match for the WWE Championship at Money In The Bank, and it all kicks off tonight.

WWE RAW

This week’s RAW opens with a look back at last week when Seth Rollins attacked Drew McIntyre following his win over Andrade. The WWE Champion makes his way to the ring; he’ll face Angel Garza later tonight.

McIntyre says this is the highlight of week and thanks us for joining him. He gets to business and says he was ambushed last week, and left lying. And who isn’t surprised that happened? Him. The WWE Championship brings with it fame, prestige, money, and more, but also, a bullseye. Because whoever holds that title is the best in the industry and he is at the top, where it’s crowded. Everybody wants to be Champion.

McIntyre says Seth Stomped him twice last week and if you read between the lines he isn’t all that complex; he wants to be the Champion. But does Seth deserve an opportunity? Drew says he could make Seth jump through hoops but he’s one of the most decorated WWE Superstars of all-time. And if he wants to be one of the best of all-time he’s going to have to fight the best WWE has to offer. So at Money In The Bank he’s challenging Seth. And then he addresses Rollins directly, but before he can get very far he’s interrupted by Angel Garza, Austin Theory, and Zelina Vega.

Drew calls Vega the number one thorn in his ass. She laughs and says they’re all so sick of his little speeches. The problem is, he’s too focused on Money In The Bank that he’s overlooking Angel Garza. Just then, Andrade attacks the Champion from behind but quickly gets dropped with a Claymore Kick. Theory and Garza refuse to get into the ring and McIntyre hits Andrade with another Claymore that sends him flying over the ropes. The heels retreat.

Still to come, McIntyre Vs. Angel Garza, MVP Vs. Apollo Crews, Rey Mysterio Vs. Murphy, and Aleister Black Vs. Austin Theory.

He asks what Black’s plan is for this year’s unique Money In The Bank match that takes place at WWE HQ in Connecticut. Aleister says he doesn’t know much about corporate life, and they’ll probably want him to cover his tattoos, but he’s going to make sure every floor of that building will be a personal hell for his opponents.
