What happened after RAW went off the air?
This week’s RAW was one of the better go-home shows for a PPV. The fact that no RAWs are sold out this year had no small part to play in it. With most of their biggest draws injured and WrestleMania on the horizon, Creative has to work in overdrive to make sure the WWE stays red hot during this season.
The show started off on a good note, with what was easily the match of the night. Kevin Owens beat Dean Ambrose, Dolph Ziggler, Stardust and Tyler Breeze to become the new Intercontinental Champion.
Paul Heyman came out and planted the seed of dissent between the brothers, Roman Reigns and Dean Ambrose. Reigns’ seemed to have sprouted a tiny bit of charisma in his promo, before being attacked by the Dudleys. Ambrose made the save, of course.
So the brothers called out the rulers of Dudleyville after RAW went off the air only to have the New Day pick up the gauntlet. The Dudleys joined the tag team champs in beating down the brothers before Reigns’ cousins, the Usos evened the playing field.
The ‘Family’ closed out the show with Reigns spearing Xavier Woods and celebrating together.
