Full results from RAW after WrestleMania: WWE title defended and Nia Jax returns

imageThe RAW after WrestleMania is traditionally WWE’s most unpredictable show of the year.

We’re usually treated to surprise returns or NXT call-ups as the entire roster aims to make their mark in the aftermath of wrestling’s biggest event.

This year’s WrestleMania was very different, taking place over two nights at an empty Performance Center.

But despite the complications, it was very well received by fans and there was plenty of hype for Monday’s episode of RAW.

So, check out the full results below – which include an NXT call-up, the return of Nia Jax and an impromptu title defence!

Match 1: Asuka def. Liv Morgan 

Match 2: The Street Profits and Bianca Belair def. Angel Garza, Austin Theory and Zelina Vega (Belair has officially been called up from the NXT roster) 

Match 3: Aleister Black def. Apollo Crews (Crews is now a member of the RAW roster, moving from SmackDown) 

Match 4: Ricochet and Cedric Alexander def. Oney Lorcan and Danny Burch  

Match 5: Seth Rollins def. Denzel Dejournette (squash match)

Match 6: Nia Jax def. Deonna Purrazzo (Jax returns after being sidelined for one year with injury) 

Match 7: Humberto Carrillo def. Brendan Vink

Match 8: Drew McIntyre def. The Big Show to retain the WWE Championship

You’re probably looking at the last match and thinking ‘what on earth happened?’

Well, RAW’s closing segment was ‘shocking footage’ from the aftermath of WrestleMania 36, where Big Show goaded McIntyre into an impromptu title match.

For parts, it looked like the Scottish Psychopath would drop the title 20 minutes after winning it, but he hit Big Show with a Claymore Kick to secure the pin.

It was an utterly bizarre ending to RAW and really did prove why it’s the most unpredictable event of the year.

WrestleMania is the Christmas Day of any WWE fan’s wrestling calendar.

With WrestleMania 36 occurring just last weekend, albeit in very weird circumstances, WWE fans have ranked every WrestleMania before it, ranging from the very first event in 1985, to WrestleMania 35 from last year.

Ranker and its readers have created a list of ‘Manias in order of worst to best; see if you can count how many you’ve watched.

35-26

35. WrestleMania 11 (1995)

34. WrestleMania 9 (1993)

33. WrestleMania 27 (2011)

28. WrestleMania 29 (2013)

27. WrestleMania 7 (1991)

26. WrestleMania 33 (2017)

35-26 Summary

Ranker’s readers have unsurprisingly decided that 1995’s WrestleMania 11 is the worst ‘Mania of all time, with a main event of NFL linebacker Lawrence Taylor against Bam Bam Bigelow.

25-16 Summary

Another mixed bag of old and new events, with the most recent ‘Mania on the list, 35, featuring at the lowest end of this section.

As well as some truly awful matches, this part of the list surprisingly features matches which are often said to be some of the best to ever happen.

Wrestlemania Press Conference In New YorkWrestleMania 12’s hour-long ‘Iron Man’ match between Shawn Michaels and Bret Hart is often ranked very highly, WrestleMania 25’s Shawn Michaels vs The Undertaker is often touted as the greatest match of all time, while Edge vs Mick Foley at WrestleMania 22 is no doubt one of the greatest hardcore matches ever.

15-6

15. WrestleMania 5 (1989)

14. WrestleMania 6 (1990)

13. WrestleMania 21 (2005)

12. WrestleMania 14 (1998)

6. WrestleMania 3 (1987)

15-6 Summary

This portion of the list no doubt features some of the most iconic matches to ever take place inside WWE’s squared circle.

This section of the list also features the more recent WrestleMania 31, so it’s nice to see that WWE have managed to impress in the last 5 years.

3. WrestleMania 20 (2004)

2. WrestleMania 19 (2003)

1. WrestleMania 17 (2001)

5-1 Summary

The upper end of this list is chock-a-block with some of the greatest matches and events in WWE history. 2014’s WrestleMania 30 is the highest ranking ‘Mania of the last decade, which included the end of The Undertaker’s streak and the culmination of Daniel Bryan’s ‘Yes!’ movement.

WrestleMania 24 also featured the much loved final match of the ‘Nature Boy’ Ric Flair against Shawn Michaels. It’s also impossible to deny the effect that matches like WrestleMania 20’s Eddie Guerrero vs Kurt Angle and WrestleMania 19’s Brock Lesnar vs Angle have had on the wrestling landscape.

Wrestlemania Press Conference In New YorkUnsurprisingly, WrestleMania 17 comes in at first place, with the monumental main event ‘No Disqualification’ match between Stone Cold and The Rock… truly a match and event for the ages.

It would’ve been interesting to see where WWE’s latest WrestleMania would fit in on this list, but one thing’s for sure, it was nothing like anything we’d seen before.

WrestleMania 36 is still taking place this weekend, despite the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

WWE has made significant sacrifices to ensure their showpiece event goes ahead, meaning this year, things are going to be quite different.

The Showcase of the Immortals will air from the Performance Center in Orlando and it will be pre-taped for the first time in history, in front of no live audience.

Despite being put in a far from ideal situation, you can be sure WWE will run one hell of a show.

So, here are all the important details you need to know about WrestleMania 36.

Date, time and venue:

This year, WrestleMania is officially ‘too big for one night’ and will air over two nights on both Saturday, April 4 and Sunday, April 5.

The event is scheduled to start at midnight UK time – with the pre-show starting at 11pm on both evenings.

As mentioned above, WrestleMania has been moved away from Raymond James Stadium in Tampa and will instead air from the Performance Center, with no live crowd.

How to watch WrestleMania 36:

The Show of Shows will be broadcast on the WWE Network, while UK based fans can also watch on BT Sport.

New Network subscribers get a 30-day free trial and after that, the service costs £9.99. Alternatively, BT Sport Box Office is offering WrestleMania for £19.95.

UK fans can watch WrestleMania on the WWE Network or BT Sport

WrestleMania 36 card:

As of writing, this is the match card for WrestleMania 36:

  • Brock Lesnar (c) vs Drew McIntyre – WWE Championship
  • Goldberg (c) vs TBA [Roman Reigns has pulled out] – Universal Championship
  • Becky Lynch (c) vs Shayna Baszler – Raw Women’s Championship
  • Rhea Ripley (c) vs Charlotte Flair – NXT Women’s Championship
  • Bayley (c) vs Lacey Evans vs Naomi vs Sasha Banks vs Tamina – Smackdown Women’s Championship
  • The Undertaker vs AJ Styles – Bone Yard match
  • Sami Zayn (c) vs Daniel Bryan – Intercontinental title
  • Edge vs Randy Orton – Last Man Standing match
  • John Cena vs ‘The Fiend’ Bray Wyatt – Firefly Funhouse Match
  • Kevin Owens vs Seth Rollins
  • The Street Profits (c) vs Angel Garza and Andrade – Raw Tag Team Championships
  • The Miz & John Morrison (c) vs The New Day vs The Usos – Smackdown Tag Team Championship
  • The Kabuki Warriors (c) vs. Alexa Bliss and Nikki Cross – Women’s Tag Team Championship
  • Otis vs. Dolph Ziggler (with Mandy Rose)
  • Elias vs King Corbin
  • Bobby Lashley vs Aleister Black

That card is absolutely stacked, so there’s little surprise WWE are running the show over two different nights.

Right now, we can’t say for sure which matches will be on which evening, but expect a lot of excitement and surprise throughout – as this is WrestleMania, after all.

WWE are pushing on with WrestleMania 36 despite the coronavirus outbreak that has wiped out sporting events across the world.

The Showcase of the Immortals will air this weekend – on both Saturday and Sunday – from the Performance Center in Orlando, Florida.

Using the empty facility to shoot SmackDown, RAW and WrestleMania has been a useful workaround for WWE, but they may not be able to do it any longer.

On Wednesday, Florida governor Ron DeSantis issued a statewide lockdown, likely meaning only essential workers will be allowed to go to work.

The stay-at-home order comes into effect at midnight on Thursday and will last for at least 30 days.

It means WWE could be forced to cease shooting at the Performance Center and take a break after WrestleMania.

Reports suggest the company were keen to carry on regardless after the biggest show of the year, but that seems highly unlikely now.

The WrestleVotes Twitter account reacted to the news, saying:

“Rumors around the PC last week were that if the state of FL issued a Stay Home order, which happened today, WWE would reconsider taking a break post Mania.”

WWE could be forced to take a break by the State of Florida

WrestlingSheet editor Ryan Satin also discussed the situation on social media, writing:

“It wouldn’t surprise me to see WWE move things to Connecticut as opposed to going on a break if they eventually can’t film at the PC for a period of time.”

Per WrestleVotes, the RAW after WrestleMania have already been shot, but if WWE are forced to take a break amid this lockdown, some of that footage will not be aired.

WWE have already shot the RAW after WrestleManiaEverything is obviously up in the air at the moment but Florida’s stay-at-home order could well be the final nail in the coffin that forces WWE to take a break amid the coronavirus pandemic.
