WWE RAW Results (4/1/2024):

The show opens up with a shot of the Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, which is the site of this weekend’s WrestleMania 40. We then see the workers put the stage together.

We then get a video recapping the events of last week’s closing segment with WWE legend The Rock and “The American Nightmare” Cody Rhodes and the continuation of the show after it went off the air.


Michael Cole starts the night by saying The Rock’s attack was one of the most horrible, despicable and disgusting assaults he has ever seen in WWE. Cole then says Rhodes was not medically cleared to appear on RAW tonight. The Rock then makes his way down to the ring as Michael Cole and Pat McAfee welcomes us to the show.

The Rock starts off by saying he made Cody Rhodes bleed. The Rock then says he took his hands and wrapped it around Rhodes’ little head. The Rock also says he rammed Rhodes’ head against the production truck and wiped the blood on his hands and on his Mama Rhodes’ weight belt. The Rock also says the only thing missing from the weight belt is Mama Rhodes’ tears. The Rock then says he is a man of his word and he told Rhodes at the beginning of last week’s show that he would make him bleed. The Rock also says all the Cody Crybabys didn’t like what he did to Rhodes and he laughed at the Cody Crybabys for crying about their hero getting beat up. The Rock then sends us to a compilation of a couple of young fan’s reaction to his production truck attack on Rhodes last week.

The Rock then says seeing reactions like that breaks his heart like many fans who have young kids like him, but he is about to drop some gospel on them. The Rock then says there are moments in life where a man has to do what he has to and there are moments in life where people stick their noses in business where it doesn’t belong. The Rock then says Rhodes did that and he had to beat him down for it. The Rock then says Brooklyn is feeling the energy because professional wrestling is cool. The Rock also says the ratings have skyrocketed because of him and Brooklyn has set a record for the largest domestic gate in the history of RAW because finally blood was shed. The Rock then says WrestleMania is 5 days out and he has come back to Brooklyn. The Rock then says he didn’t come back to Brooklyn alone.

Roman Reigns’ music then hits and he makes his way down to the ring with the rest of The Bloodline.

Reigns starts off by telling Brooklyn to acknowledge him. Reigns then says those who saw his A&E biography already knows what his hoodie says and that is family above all. Reigns also says that is how he has always operated and he came to RAW to acknowledge his family. Reigns then thanks The Rock for giving him the easiest WrestleMania match of his life in their Night One tag team match against Rhodes and Seth “Freakin” Rollins. Reigns also says he and the rest of The Bloodline will have their way with Rhodes at Night Two. Reigns then says if fans didn’t see The Rock’s attack on Rhodes last week, they have seen it on social media.

Reigns then says he didn’t need The Rock to beat up Rhodes, but he still did and put his family above all. Reigns then says The Rock showed how to lead and Rhodes is not fit for leadership. Reigns also says Rhodes is a politician and while The Bloodline was making wrestling cool in 2020, Rhodes was off somewhere doing a whole lot of nothing. Reigns then says enough is enough and The Bloodline can’t have Rhodes trying to take them off the top of the mountain. Reigns then says the mountain belongs to The Bloodline and it won’t be more crystal clear than it will be on Sunday.

WWE World Heavyweight Champion Seth “Freakin” Rollins’ music then hits and he makes his way out through the crowd. Rollins says if The Bloodline wants to attack him, then they will have to fight the whole of Brooklyn. Rollins also says the time for talking is over and he is ready to fight. Rollins also says he wants to fight tonight and Brooklyn deserves the biggest main event of all time. Rollins then challenges The Rock to a singles match, but says since he doesn’t think The Rock is brave enough to do so, he would be more than happy to face Reigns instead. Rollins then says he leaves it up to The Bloodline to choose who faces him in the main event and tells them to pick what stipulation the match will be.

The Rock then tells Rollins challenging him and Reigns was a mistake, then questions if Rollins saw what happened to Rhodes last week. The Rock then says Rollins wants none of that and tells Rollins that he won’t be fighting either of them. Solo Sikoa then grabs a mic and informs Rollins that he will be fighting him instead of Reigns or The Rock and Rollins agrees to face him. The Rock then tells Rollins that the match will be Bloodline Rules.

We then get a video clip from Women’s World Champion Rhea Ripley’s MMA Hour interview earlier today when “The Man” Becky Lynch interrupted Mami and got in her face. We then head to the back, where Cathy Kelley is interviewing Lynch. Lynch says she was here tonight to finish what she started. Lynch then says she would be in the ring if Ripley cares to answer the call.

8-Man Tag Team Match: #DIY (Johnny Gargano and Tommaso Ciampa) and The New Day (Kofi Kingston and Xavier Woods) vs. The Judgment Day (Undisputed WWE Tag Team Champions “Señor Money In The Bank” Damian Priest and Finn Balor, “Dirty” Dominik Mysterio and JD McDonagh)

We then get video footage of Sami Zayn training with Chad Gable at the WWE Performance Center. Zayn and Gable were watching tape on “The Ring General” GUNTHER before Gable put Zayn through extensive training. Zayn then thought he was done, but Gable put him in a choke and Zayn taps out. Zayn then asks Gable what the hell that was. Zayn then tells Gable he had enough of this. Gable then tells Zayn something was holding him back and pestered him until he admitted what was wrong. Zayn then admitted he was afraid of letting people down and disappointing his family. Gable then gave Zayn encouraging words, which was enough to make him continue training. Zayn then continued his training and Gable tries to choke him out again, but Zayn countered it this time. Zayn and Gable then smiled and they shook hands.

We then head to the back, where we see The Judgment Day hanging out in their clubhouse. The group were all on the same page until Legado Del Fantasma shows up as they were invited by Dominik.
