Word: This text comprises full present match outcomes from WWE Monday Evening Uncooked from the Bell Centre in Montreal, Quebec, which aired on April 15, 2019.
WrestleMania 35 is gone, gone, gone and we’re already trying approach forward to Raymond James Stadium in Tampa Bay, Florida in a 12 months’s time for WrestleMania 36.
There’s an terrible lot of wrestling to occur earlier than then, and after week’s fallout exhibits, the trail began final evening with half one of many Famous person Shake-up.
Learn on for six issues we discovered on Monday Evening Uncooked with a collection of brand name switches and call-ups.
1. NXT Tag Group Champions
The Conflict Raiders The Viking Expertise are right here on Uncooked as Hanson and Rowe Ivar and Erik be a part of Uncooked from NXT (and so, formally, do Aleister Black & Ricochet)
With a variety of NXT stars becoming a member of Uncooked and SmackDown in a cross-brand capability between Christmas and WrestleMania 35, it wasn’t a given that we might get any extra in the course of the shake-up.
However final evening we obtained a shock addition to the Uncooked roster from NXT, as the present, reigning tag workforce champs burst on to the scene.
They usually’ve obtained model spanking new names, too.
Often known as the Conflict Raiders Hanson and Rowe, the duo have held the belts over in Full Sail since NXT TakeOver: Phoenix.
They usually’re nonetheless in possession of that gold regardless of a complete identification change. Uncooked (and presumably NXT, come Wednesday), meet Ivar (previously Hanson) and Erik (previously Rowe): The Viking Expertise.
The rebranded (in each approach) workforce made an immediate influence final evening, becoming a member of forces with The Revival for a sensible victory towards present Uncooked champs Zack Ryder and Curt Hawkins and up to date call-ups Aleister Black & Ricochet, who are actually formally a Uncooked tag workforce.
2. Bayley joins forces with Naomi after splitting from Sasha Banks
There have been all types of rumours spinning across the grime screens about Sasha Banks and her obvious unhappiness within the WWE.
We have not been in a position to get affirmation or denial on any of that, so we’ll shove it to at least one facet, for now.
What’s clear although is that the primary holders of the relaunched WWE Girls’s Tag Group Championship are not a tag workforce.
Simply over per week after shedding the belts to The IIconics, Sasha has cut up from Bayley, and with out even that juicy feud they have been teasing us with for the final two years.
As a substitute we simply obtained the Hugster popping out along with her model new companion, the always-impressive Naomi.
And it was the Glow who obtained the pin as they took on Billie Kay and Peyton Royce in a non-title match.
With Nia Jax out of rivalry with a severe harm, Bayley and her new companion have certainly trundled their approach to the entrance of the road for a shot at The IIconics recently-won gold.
3. AJ Kinds is right here on Monday Evening Uncooked
Ever because the WWE draft in 2016 kickstarted a brand new brand-split period for the WWE, AJ Kinds has been inextricably linked with SmackDown Dwell.
He is been the usual bearer for the Blue Model for the nearly-three years since then, however all that modified final evening as he joined forces with two-thirds of The Defend on Monday Evening Uncooked.
With Dean Ambrose (seemingly) gone, gone, gone, Roman Reigns and Seth Rollins wasted no time in enlisting some severely heavy firepower as a short-term alternative.
Collectively they defeated Drew McIntyre, Baron Corbin & Bobby Lashley, with Rollins, Reigns and Kinds every hitting Lashley with a finisher to get the job carried out.
There are nonetheless loads of spinning plates, however Kinds on Uncooked is bound to present each the person and the present a wanted shot within the arm.
4. Becky Lynch’s first Uncooked challenger is Lacey Evans
After months of being a SmackDown Famous person and a Uncooked title challenger that includes on each exhibits, Becky Lynch is now a champ champ with honest purpose to look on Monday AND Tuesday nights.
And right here on Monday Evening Uncooked she’s already obtained a number of wrestlers who need at the least one in all her straps.
Ruby Riott was first in line, however she could have discovered herself nudged to the again of the queue after her defeat by Lynch
Step ahead Natalya, an ex-champ who’s at all times on the lookout for the subsequent alternative, BUT OH WAIT HANG ON WHO’S THIS?
Lacy Evans appeared as soon as extra, and as soon as extra she did greater than stroll and wave this week.
The Woman of WWE revealed that she’d spoken to the McMahons and parlayed a quantity #1 contender’s match towards Nattie for the correct to face Bex.
Proper hand. Standing change moonault. And Lacey Evans is Becky Lynch’s official challenger.
5. The Usos are right here on Monday Evening Uncooked
If the primary roster debut of the
Conflict Raiders Viking Expertise (sorry, we’re nonetheless getting used to that one), has left us confused, then this made much more sense.
The SmackDown Dwell Tag Group Division has been on hearth for an extended, very long time now, with high quality in each nook.
And its anchor has at all times been The Usos, who’ve been the the blokes that actually tied that division collectively, even after they weren’t holding the gold.
Against this, over on Uncooked issues have gone in suits and begins, and extra suits than begins in reality.
The titles have modified fingers too rapidly with little buzz or fanfare, and with none workforce actually managing to ascertain itself as a spotlight of the three hour present.
Nicely, all that’s hopefully about to vary as Jimmy and Jey Uso have converted to Monday nights.
They usually confirmed that they have been prepared for the transfer with a hard-fought victory over Chad Gable and Bobby Roode, ending issues off with a flurry of trademark Superkicks and the Double Uce.
We’ll must see how the whole lot settles by subsequent week, nevertheless it appears like we lastly have a tag workforce division on our fingers right here.
6. Andrade, Rey Mysterio, The Miz and Lars Sullivan are on Uncooked… (and so is a solo Eric Younger and Cedric Alexander it appears), however we do not learn about Braun Strowman, Sami Zayn or Alexa Bliss
With the Famous person Shake-up being a two-day affair, it is nonetheless not completely clear the place some wrestlers are going to finish up.
Andrade has made the leap to Group Crimson although, and made an immediate assertion with a Zelina Vega-assisted win towards the present WWE Intercontinental Champion Finn Bálor (and signal us up for a PPV match between these two, please).
Rey Mysterio has switched manufacturers, too, although he did not have such a cheerful Uncooked return after Lars Sullivan reduce brief his hiya.
And after Shane McMahon opened the present, The Miz confirmed that their rivalry was removed from over after their brutal WrestleMania 35 encounter, by following him over and having a measure of revenge with a metal chair.
However the way forward for many different stars continues to be up within the air – even when they appeared on final evening’s present.
Braun Strowman, Sami Zayn and Alexa Bliss all made an look, with Strowman chokeslamming confirmed Uncooked man EC3 and Alexa having a Second of Bliss with Sami.
Not one of the trio have been confirmed for Uncooked, although, closely suggesting a transfer to SmackDown tomorrow evening.
However after their limp SmackDown debut final 12 months, it seems that SAnitY are not any extra, as a solo Eric Younger appears to have jumped over to Uncooked (however did not have any display time to impress within the three-hour present).
And Cedric Alexander has made the leap from 205 Dwell to Monday Evening Uncooked, and can hope to emulate the success of latest cruiserweight sensation
Oh, and there was this…
