Posted on 4/08/119 by Colin Vassallo

The Man brings the Raw and SmackDown Womens Titles to Raw

WrestleManias historic, first-ever womens main event lived
up to every bit of the hype, and then some. In a Winner Take
All classic that may best be described as indescribable,
it was Becky Lynch who emerged victorious over Ronda Rousey
and Charlotte Flair, and in the process became WWEs
inaugural Raw and SmackDown Womens Champion.

And now The Man, accompanied by her newly won championship
gold, comes around to Raw tonight. If history has taught us
anything, its that anything can and will happen on the
Raw after WrestleMania. What does Lynch have to say to the
WWE Universe? Find out tonight on USA Network at 8/7 CT.

Rollins slays The Beast

Seth Rollins told Brock Lesnar and the WWE Universe that at
WrestleMania, he would march into Suplex City and burn it
down. Well, the smoke has cleared, The Beast has been slain,
and The Beastslayer is the new Universal Champion.

It nearly didnt happen. Before the match had officially
begun, Lesnar savagely assaulted Rollins to the point where
The Architect could barely stand. Yet stand he did, and he
made the most of his opportunity to take Lesnar down and
keep him down for the three-count.

In a WWE.com exclusive shortly after the bout, the new
Universal Champion promised to be a fighting champion. Will
tonight in Brooklyn provide Rollins his first opportunity to
prove it?

The Big Dog reclaims his yard

Yes, Roman Reigns bested Drew McIntyre in a brutal, highly
personal confrontation at WrestleMania 35. More important,
he silenced even the most vocal of doubters who wondered if
he could return to WWE at 100 percent following his battle
with leukemia, or that he could once again make Raw the yard
of The Big Dog.

Dont expect The Scottish Psychopath to go away quietly,
however. Despite falling short, McIntyre relentlessly
pummeled Reigns for much of the contest. And lets not
forget how he spent the past several months dominating the
Raw roster, including his victories over Reigns Shield
brothers, Seth Rollins and Dean Ambrose. How will McIntyre
respond to his loss at WrestleMania, and will Roman Reigns
see it coming when he does?

Second Intercontinental Title is too sweet for BlorFinn Blor unleashed The Demon at WrestleMania 35, defeating
Bobby Lashley and leaving MetLife Stadium with his second
Intercontinental Title. Now that he has vanquished The All
Mighty, what new challenges await The Extraordinary Man?
And will the first of those challenges rise against Blor
tonight on Raw?

The (Defeated) Streak ends for Curt Hawkins

Curt Hawkins first win in 270 matches couldnt have come at
a better time, or on a grander stage. Hawkins joined The
Undertaker and Asuka in the WrestleMania history books by
snapping another iconic albeit not so favorable streak,
as he and Zack Ryder defeated The Revivals Dash Wilder &
Scott Dawson during the WrestleMania Kickoff, then
celebrated in front of a hometown crowd as the new Raw Tag
Team Champions.

Now that he has won his first match since November 2016, the
question for Hawkins and for Ryder is whether they can
begin a new streak to keep hold of the red brands
illustrious tandem titles. Perhaps that question may be
answered as early as tonight in Brooklyn.

Expect plenty of surprises to unfold on the Raw after
WrestleMania, live at 8/7 C on USA Network!
