Overview of WWE Raw S31E19

To kick off the show, WWE Champion Drew McIntyre came out to hype up his title match at Money in the Bank. As The Scottish Psychopath boasted about defeating Seth Rollins, he was interrupted by Dolph Ziggler. Ziggler accused McIntyre of only defeating Rollins with help from WWE official Adam Pearce. An irate McIntyre challenged Ziggler to a match to prove him wrong.

A shocking return

In a surprise, Zelina Vega made her return to Raw to manage Andrade and Angel Garza. The trio viciously attacked Humberto Carrillo backstage, taking him out of his scheduled match. With Carrillo unable to compete, Garza instead faced Akira Tozawa. Thanks to interference from Andrade and Vega, Garza defeated Tozawa to pick up a win in his first match back.

The Viking Raiders raid Raw

After weeks of ominous vignettes, Erik and Ivar, The Viking Raiders finally returned to Raw. In a dominant display, they defeated Cedric Alexander and Shelton Benjamin. The Raiders showed they haven’t missed a beat during their time away and look poised to raid the Raw tag team division.

A championship opportunity

With Carrillo unable to compete, WWE official Adam Pearce held a Fatal 4-Way match to determine a new number one contender for the United States Championship. After a chaotic match, Mustafa Ali pinned Drew Gulak to become the new number one contender. Ali will face United States Champion Sheamus next week for a chance at the coveted title.

Key Matches and Segments From WWE Raw S31E19

To kick off the show, WWE Champion Bobby Lashley faced Xavier Woods in a non-title match. Despite Woods’ speed and agility, Lashley dominated with his power and picked up the win after hitting a huge spinebuster and locking in the Hurt Lock for the submission victory.

Tag Team Turmoil

The tag team division was in turmoil as tensions rose between partners. RK-Bro argued again, the Viking Raiders grew frustrated with each other after a loss, and Mandy Rose accidentally cost Dana Brooke a match. The only team on the same page was AJ Styles and Omos, who defeated two local competitors in a squash match.

Asuka vs Charlotte Flair

The rivalry between Asuka and Charlotte Flair intensified this week. Asuka interrupted Flair’s promo, leading to a war of words and ultimately a match between the two competitors. Despite Asuka’s speed and technical skills, Flair targeted Asuka’s leg and locked in the Figure Eight Leglock to force Asuka to tap out. After the match, Flair brutalized Asuka’s leg, sending a message that she wants the Raw Women’s Championship.

Damian Priest vs The Miz

Damian Priest faced his former associate, The Miz, in a match that showcased Priest’s potential as a rising star. Although The Miz tried to manipulate Priest, the Archer of Infamy stayed focused. Priest ducked a Skull Crushing Finale attempt and hit The Reckoning to pick up a big win over the former WWE Champion. After the match, The Miz seethed with anger while Priest celebrated with the crowd.

With championship matches, personal rivalries, and turmoil in the tag team division, WWE Raw delivered an action-packed show this week. Tune in next Monday at 8/7 C on USA Network to see how the storylines progress!

Winners and Losers From WWE Raw S31E19

Winners: The Street Profits

The Street Profits had another successful title defense this week, overcoming Andrade “Cien” Almas and Angel Garza. Montez Ford and Angelo Dawkins have really come into their own as tag team champions, showing off an exciting in-ring style and charisma that fans can’t get enough of. With few real challengers left, they may hold onto those titles for a while.

Losers: Bobby Lashley

Bobby Lashley had a rough night, suffering not one but two losses. First, he was defeated by Randy Orton in a hard-fought match. Then, later in the show, Lashley answered an open challenge from WWE Champion Drew McIntyre but came up short again. After being on such a hot streak lately, two big losses in one night is sure to sting. Lashley will have to go back to the drawing board to regain momentum.

Winner: Asuka

The Empress of Tomorrow picked up a win in her first match back from injury, defeating Nia Jax by submission. Asuka looked as dominant as ever, locking in an armbar to get the quick tap out. With Asuka back in the mix, the Raw women’s division just got a lot more interesting. She’ll surely have her eyes on the women’s championship, currently held by Shayna Baszler.

Loser: Rey Mysterio

The poor Mysterio family just can’t catch a break. This week, Seth Rollins defeated Rey Mysterio in a match and continued his torment of the family after, delivering not one but two stomps to leave Mysterio lying. Rollins’ sadistic obsession with punishing Mysterio has gone on for months now, and Rey is surely hoping this rivalry with “The Messiah” will end soon before there’s nothing left of him.

To summarize, the big winners were The Street Profits and Asuka picking up victories, while Bobby Lashley and Rey Mysterio suffered tough losses. The action-packed night on Raw certainly shook up the standings and set up some interesting matchups down the road.

Best Moments From WWE Raw S31E19

The show opened with a surprise appearance from “The Man” herself, Becky Lynch. After being out of action for over a year due to pregnancy and maternity leave, Becky received a hero’s welcome from the live crowd. She came out to a massive pop and cut an impassioned promo about how much she’s missed the business and her fans. While she didn’t announce an official in-ring return date, the entire segment was a feel-good moment and set the perfect tone for the rest of the show.

The New Day vs. The Hurt Business

This match for the Raw Tag Team Championships was a hard-hitting affair that saw Kofi Kingston and Xavier Woods of The New Day defend their titles against MVP and Shelton Benjamin of The Hurt Business. After a chaotic closing sequence, Kofi hit the Trouble in Paradise on Benjamin to get the pinfall victory and retain the gold. The match itself was excellent, and the result keeps The New Day’s record-setting title reign intact for another week.

Asuka vs. Charlotte Flair

The heated rivalry between Asuka and Charlotte Flair reached a boiling point as the two collided in a brutal matchup. They brawled around ringside and used the barricades and announce table as weapons to inflict punishment on one another. In the end, Flair countered the Asuka Lock into a pinning combination to score the victory. However, the war between The Empress and The Queen is clearly far from over. This was a hard-hitting, high-impact fight that lived up to the hype.

Drew McIntyre Confronts Sheamus

In the show’s closing segment, WWE Champion Drew McIntyre came face to face with his former best friend Sheamus. The two traded verbal barbs and discussed their extensive history with one another. Sheamus blamed Drew for changing and forgetting his roots. Drew fired back by calling Sheamus jealous of his success. The heated exchange ended with the two rivals brawling around the ring until officials separated them. This personal rivalry is shaping up to be Drew’s biggest challenge yet as champion. Their eventual match could be an instant classic.

What’s Next After WWE Raw S31E19

Raw left a lot of questions heading into the next episode. With WrestleMania just around the corner, the road to the biggest show of the year is heating up. ###Major storylines still need resolution

Several ongoing storylines will continue over the next few weeks. Will Seth Rollins be able to overcome the numbers game and finally get his hands on Murphy and the Mysterio family? And will Shayna Baszler make good on her promise to dismantle Asuka on her way to WrestleMania?

Championship matches taking shape

Both the WWE and Universal titles will be on the line at WrestleMania, but the challengers are still to be determined. On the Raw side, Drew McIntyre will have to deal with the dangerous Lashley before he can rest easy knowing his opponent for the Show of Shows. On SmackDown, Roman Reigns has a long list of potential challengers, from Kevin Owens to Daniel Bryan. The next two months of TV should provide answers.

NXT stars poised to shine

Each year, a few NXT stars get called up around WrestleMania season to make a big splash on the main roster. Candidates like Finn Bálor, Adam Cole, and Rhea Ripley would all be great additions to Raw. Their arrivals could shake up the show in a major way.

Surprise returns always possible

WrestleMania season is also prime time for Superstars to make surprise returns and shake up the status quo. Could stars like Samoa Joe, Bayley or even Ronda Rousey reappear in the coming weeks to crash the biggest party of the year? In the WWE, you never know.

With so much left unsettled, the remaining episodes of Raw leading up to WrestleMania should be action-packed. New champions will be crowned, debuts will be made, and careers may even be ended.
