List of Debuts, Returns and Other Important Things on Raw (Videos)
Here are the “big” things that happened on tonight’s very eventful Raw after WrestleMania in New Orleans…
Debut: Ember Moon
Ember Moon made her main roster debut, teaming up with Nia Jax to defeat Alexa Bliss and Mickie James. Moon hit the Eclipse on Alexa for the win.
Debut: No Way Jose
No Way Jose made his main roster debut and squashed “John Skylar” quickly.
Debut: The Authors of Pain
The Authors of Pain wrestled Heath Slater and Rhyno and destroyed them, then they turned their back on their manager, Paul Ellering, so he won’t be part of the main roster with them.
Debut/Return: Bobby Lashley
Bobby Lashley returned, interrupting an Elias singing segment and quickly laying him out with a few moves.
Return: Jeff Hardy
Jeff Hardy returned from injury in an in-ring segment with Rollins, Balor and Miz. Hardy, Balor and Miz then wrestled The Miz and Miztourage in a six man tag match in the main event. Jeff also had a brief backstage segment with Matt Hardy and Bray Wyatt, but seems like he’s going to be on his own for now at least.
Return: Samoa Joe
Samoa Joe interrupted Roman Reigns and cut a promo on him.
Braun Strowman and Nicholas Dropped the Raw Tag Titles
Braun Strowman and Nicholas relinquished their Raw Tag Team titles because Nicholas has a very busy schedule and has to go to school. Later, Kurt Angle announced a four team tournament, with the winners (now down to The Revival vs. Matt Hardy & Bray Wyatt) facing The Bar in Saudi Arabia on April 27.
Paige Announced Her Retirement
Paige officially announced her retirement.
Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn
Owens and Zayn asked Angle if they could come to Raw, but Angle said he didn’t have room for a tag team but he heard that TNA was hiring. He then put them in a match, with the winner getting a spot on Raw, but it ended in a draw, so neither of them got a contract (for now).
