Sasha Banks & Naomi def. Rhea Ripley & Liv Morgan
There was no rest for the Women’s Tag Team Champions, as Sasha Banks & Naomi battled Rhea Ripley & Liv Morgan one night after winning the titles in a Fatal 4-Way Match.
A miscommunication between Ripley & Morgan opened the door for “Boss ‘n’ Glow” tandem offense, and the champions started their reign in style. After the match, The Nightmare’s displeasure with her teammate was apparent, leaving many to wonder what the future holds for Ripley & Morgan.
As KO rolled out excuses for his WrestleMania performance, a Superstar who bore a striking resemblance to Elias emerged to stare down Owens.

The royal Superstar went on the attack, but The Most Beautiful Woman in WWE found herself right at home in the warm embrace of her soon-to-be husband.
Austin Theory & The Usos def. RK-Bro & Finn Bálor
After last week’s matchup was derailed, the Raw & SmackDown Tag Team Champions did battle once again but this time added Austin Theory and Finn Bálor to the equation. It was a chaotic clash throughout, as an RKO from Randy Orton led off a chain reaction that eventually ended with an ATL from Theory to Bálor that clinched the victory.
Edge & Damian Priest dished out a beatdown to AJ Styles
Damian Priest addressed the WWE Universe and attempted to explain his apparent alliance with the WWE Hall of Famer after helping him beat AJ Styles on WrestleMania Sunday. Edge used the opportunity to goad The Phenomenal One, and only WWE officials spared Styles from another Con-chair-to assault.
The Street Profits are def. Alpha Academy in a Tornado Tag Team Match
Two of the most experienced tag teams on the red brand came out brawling, which prompted WWE official Adam Pearce to declare a Tornado Tag Team Match. With no disqualifications, Otis & Chad Gable stacked up a table in the middle of the ring, but Montez Ford sent Alpha Academy’s Master crashing through it thanks to a skyscraping Frog Splash.
Roman Reigns started his dominance
The message was simple: The Universe has never seen a champion like Roman Reigns. This Friday, The Head of the Table is set to decide his next move.
“Wrestling has more than one royal family.”
“The American Nightmare” Cody Rhodes makes his return to Monday Night Raw to a big reception A loud “Cody” chant picks up. Rhodes is wearing a blue suit. Rhodes goes to speak but then puts the microphone down to listen to the crowd.
Unfortunately, that dream died in front of him. That opportunity passed… or did it? in other words, He cannot physically put that title into his father’s hands, but he can put it around the waist of The American Nightmare. The crowd loudly cheers that. A “You can do it” chant picks up.
After that, Rhodes smiles. With that in mind, the silence is broken. His intentions are clear. Rhodes stands before the crowd finally ready. Rhodes is going to do it. He’s going to give the distinction that his family has been denied.
“BURN IT DOWN!”
For example, A “YES” chant picks up. Rollins cackles and shakes Rhodes’ hand. Rollins backs up and leaves the ring, and Rhodes looks a little taken aback.
Although, The Undisputed Universal Champion Roman Reigns will be on WWE Monday Night Raw tonight. For instance, Raw Tag Team Champions RK-Bro will team with WWE United States Champion Finn Bálor to take on SmackDown Tag Team Champions.
