Last night was supposed to mark the much-anticipated return of Brock Lesnar on WWE Raw. Apart from this, a packed episode was waiting for us with a never-before-seen match in the name of the Ultimate Deletion.
Plus, a huge women’s division matchup was also hosted on the show. Check out the results from the show hosted by the American Airlines Center in Dallas, Texas.
The show kicked off with the WWE Raw general manager, Kurt Angle who was about to address the tag team championships issue. Prior to that, he informed the crowd that both Roman Reigns and Brock Lesnar would not be there. But, Reigns walked out to the show through the crowd. Security guards walked out to prevent him from overtaking the show.
They put him in the handcuffs to take him out of the ring. Brock Lesnar’s music hit the arena and came down to the ring to deliver an assault to the Big Dog. Numerous chair-shots and german suplexes were delivered to the contender. Lesnar came back to the ring to deliver more chair shots to Reigns. The medical facility came down to drag Reigns away to the back on a stretcher.
Alexa Bliss came down to the ring to cut a furious heel promo on Nia Jax. She seemed happy to end their friendship with Nia. The scheduled match with Asuka was dominated by her until the latter one locked in the ankle lock. Bliss walked out of the ring to get counted out. Nia walked out to attack but Bliss escaped. So, Mickie James suffered the wrath of the behemoth superstar.
The Miz seemed irate over not featuring in the poster of Wrestlemania despite being the champion. He went on a rant over it until The Club came down to have their scheduled match against The Miztourage on WWE Raw. Balor pinned the Miz with a simple roll-up to win the match. Miz and Co. started an attack on Balor which was broken by Seth Rollins. He and Balor had a staredown to end the segment.
John Cena came out on WWE Raw to call out The Undertaker from his home state of Dallas to know his answer for Wrestlemania challenge. He took a number of shots to the Deadman to insult him. But, that failed to bring him back to the show. Rather, Kane’s music hit the arena and he marched to the ring. Instead of giving an answer, he delivered a chokeslam to Cena.
Sasha Banks and Bayley had a confrontation which was a mutual respect showing to both of them to save the friendship. They were up for a tag team match against Sonya Deville and Mandy Rose. At one point, Bayley had Deville pinned for the win but the referee was distracted by Sasha who was beating down Mandy. Deville delivered a big kick on Bayley to pick up the win.
Braun Strowman appeared on WWE Raw and stated that the officials let him know to find a tag team partner for the Wrestlemania match. He informed us that he has already found him. But, the name has not been revealed. Rather, a singles match was contested between Strowman and Cesaro. Strowman won the match by virtue of a powerslam. Also, The Revival defeated Titus Worldwide in a tag team match.
In the main event of WWE Raw, the Ultimate Deletion matchup took place between Matt Hardy and Bray Wyatt. We witnessed numerous nee characters like Vanguard1, Skarsgard, George Washington and more from the Hardy Compound. While Wyatt was going for the Sister Abigail, Senor Benjamin distracted him from the back. Even Brother Nero appeared to do the same allowing Matt Hardy to deliver the Twist of Fate for the win.
