    Raw Five-Point Preview: April 18, 2016
    Rivals bring chaos to the United Kingdom


    As Raw emanates from London, Dean Ambrose and Chris Jericho have a lot of unfinished business, while Kevin Owens will no doubt seek vengeance against his former friend, Sami Zayn. Will these combustible rivalries ignite in London? Plus, will Shane McMahon’s reign as Raw’s showrunner continue?

    1. Will rivalries reach a boiling point?
    Last Thursday night, SmackDown’s main event clash between Sami Zayn and Chris Jericho devolved into an all-out brawl when Kevin Owens attacked his former friend, prompting Dean Ambrose to enter the fray and even the odds. Owens received a swift Helluva Kick to the face for his discretions, while Jericho evaded the wrath of The Lunatic Fringe.

    As Jericho continues to seethe after the cancellation of “The Highlight Reel” in favor of a new show, “The Ambrose Asylum,” will WWE’s first Undisputed Champion hatch a nefarious scheme to get back at WWE’s newest — and most unstable — talk show host? And is The Prizefighter gunning for The Underdog from the Underground in London?

    2. Can Reigns continue to silence his critics as “the guy” in WWE?
    He’s not a good guy, he’s not a bad guy, he’s the guy. And yet, there are some members of the WWE Universe who continue to criticize our new WWE World Heavyweight Champion. After conquering 14-time World Champion Triple H in the biggest WrestleMania main event in history, The Big Dog has continued to dominate the competition, even teaming with mortal enemy Bray Wyatt to defeat Sheamus & Alberto Del Rio last week on Raw.

    Now, Reigns brings his coveted title to the United Kingdom, two weeks before he defends it against AJ Styles at WWE Payback. How will the powerhouse prove his doubters wrong once again on Raw?

    3. Might Shane McMahon run his third consecutive Raw?
    For two weeks, Shane McMahon has assumed control of Raw, and for two weeks, the show has been astounding, bringing us new Superstars, unexpected returns and even a No. 1 Contenders’ Tag Team Tournament sponsored, naturally, by Booty-O’s.

    We haven’t seen The Authority on Monday night’s hottest show since WrestleMania, and Triple H and Stephanie McMahon surely have some strong opinions about Shane-O-Mac’s job performance. Will we see WWE’s Prodigal Son reign once more, or might The Authority put a stop to Shane’s tenure as Raw showrunner?

    4. Is Emma in for an Irish Lass Kicking?

    Much like Becky Lynch is now, Emma was once beloved by the WWE Universe – a relationship that, she claims, got her nowhere in WWE. With a ruthless demeanor and a brutal offensive style honed in NXT, Emma is back on the WWE roster, determined to teach The Irish Lass Kicker that “nice girls finish last.”

    Viciously defeating Paige on SmackDown, the Australian aggressor aimed to send a pointed message to the fiery fan-favorite. How will Becky Lynch respond on Raw?

    5. Who will advance in the No. 1 Contenders’ Tag Team Tournament?
    Is your bracket busted yet? Thus far, the No. 1 Contenders’ Tag Team Tournament, sponsored by Booty-O’s, has given us incredible matchups and unbelievable upsets, leaving us with two anticipated Semifinals Matches: The Usos vs. The Vaudevillains, and Enzo Amore & Colin Cassady vs. The Dudley Boyz.

    Which of these teams will move on to the final bout of this tournament and challenge The New Day for the WWE Tag Team Championship? Additionally, after globally-renowned competitors Karl Anderson & Luke Gallows attacked Jimmy & Jey Uso following one of last week’s tournament matches, will the dominant tandem make their presence known once again this week?

  16. So we begin the show with the jobber edition of RAW and we’re off to a cracking start for offending parents…

    Big Show vs. Bo Dallas and Curtis Axel
    Show comes out to a good reaction, and The Outcasts have some offence albeit brief. In a squash match, Show picks up the win very quickly.

    Tyler Breeze vs. Kalisto
    Surprised to see Kalisto on Superstars to be honest. The match gets underway and Breeze quickly kicks Kalisto in the head. Breeze is pretty dominant, but Kalisto is able to mount a comeback and pick up the win (no surprise really).

    RAW is off to a start with a plant pot and clipboard in the ring as the crowd chant YES YES YES!

    Before long, Dean Ambrose makes his way to the ring to an incredible reaction for the Ambrose Asylum talking about various news items such as a monster in the Thames. He then introduces his first guest Shane O Mac to a thunderous reaction…

    Shane talks about the WWE Universe deserving better, before Kevin Owens makes his way out to lambast Shane before going on a tyrant about Sami Zayn who then makes his way to the ring. He is quickly interrupted by Chris Jericho and a brawl is quickly underway as Shane holds the plant. He then announces Owens versus Ambrose in the main event, with Jericho versus Zayn up next.

    Lucas and Dave are up in the rafters of the O2 Arena. Keep refreshing this page throughout the night for the latest updates as and when the action happens. You don’t want to miss anything important do you…
  17. It's scary in here
