WWE Raw preview, April 22, 2019: A new era begins on the red brand
Now that the Raw roster has been shaken up, what awaits Team Red’s newest Superstars and reigning titleholders? Don’t miss the first Monday Night Raw after the Superstar Shake-up at 8/7 C on USA Network!
Shaken and stirred
This past Monday night, the landscape of Monday Night Raw changed in a big way. With new Superstars like The Viking Experience, Ricochet, Aleister Black and Lacey Evans cementing themselves as official Team Red Superstars, and the likes of AJ Styles, Naomi, The Usos, The Miz and Andrade arriving from SmackDown LIVE, we can expect many new matchups this week. Who among them will make their mark?
Will a new Superstar emerge as Seth Rollins’ next challenger?
After the Superstar Shake-up, it’s anyone’s guess who will be next to challenge Seth Rollins for his Universal Championship. And with Dean Ambrose’s departure from WWE and Roman Reigns’ move to SmackDown LIVE, The Beastslayer now stands alone against a transformed field of competition.
What creepy force is infiltrating WWE?
A laughing, coughing bird in a box. A cackling doll in a rocking chair. Since WrestleMania, the WWE Universe has borne witness to unsettling images that hint at impending malice. What is the meaning behind these messages?
Lacey Evans calls for The Man
By defeating Natalya this past Monday night on Raw, Lacey Evans has earned a one-on-one Raw Women’s Championship opportunity against “Becky Two Belts” herself, Becky Lynch. The Lady of WWE has been working overtime to get under the skin of The Man since the night after WrestleMania, intent on prying one of Lynch’s prizes from her grasp. When will Evans’ opportunity take place?
Does The Miz have unfinished business with Shane McMahon?
After Shane McMahon brutalized The Miz’s father en route to defeating The A-Lister during WrestleMania’s Falls Count Anywhere Match, Miz has been out for payback. So, when The Awesome One was revealed as the first SmackDown LIVE Superstar to move to Raw in the Superstar Shake-up, he wasted no time in making Shane-O-Mac pay for his transgressions, unleashing on “The Best in the World” with a steel chair.
Shane managed to escape further battering at the hands of The Miz, but he’d best have his head on a swivel this coming Monday night.
