Sheamus vs Ricochet: It was more than just another match for Sheamus after he got humiliated by Ricochet last night at Wrestlemania Backlash. Despite Sheamus winning last night, Ricochet stole his long coat and hat to leave him embarrassed. Ricochet mocked Sheamus by making his way into the ring wearing the stolen long coat and hat of Sheamus. After a few blows in disdain from Ricochet, Sheamus took control and displayed his brute power. For the majority of the first half, the Irishman looked focused, but Ricochet with his high-flying skills was more than resilient in the second half of the match. He jumped off the turnbuckle on the outside near the commentary table where Sheamus was standing and made life worse for the Irishmen with his high flying moves. But eventually, it just took only one ‘Brogue Kick’ and Sheamus was able to pin the highly impressive Ricochet. Result: Sheamus won via Pinfall.

 

Asuka vs Charlotte: A match set by the WWE official Sonya Deville backstage saw two of the best in Raw Women’s locker room fighting with a grudge and sheer strength. Raw Women’s Champion Rhea Ripley was present at the ringside to have a close look. Hip attack, big boot strike, knee to the face, bulldog face burst, top-rope dropkicks German suplex, etc. all were on display in one of the best matches of the night. In the closing moments, Charlotte looked in control and was seeking a figure 4, but to her distress, her own move was converted into a roll-up pinfall by Asuka. With this loss, Charlotte’s chances of facing Rhea Ripley for the Raw Women’s Championship look completely bleak at least for the near future. Result: Asuka won the match via Pinfall

 

John Morrison vs Damian Priest (Lumberjack Match): After an uncanny ‘Zombies’ lumberjack match at Wrestlemania Backlash, it was time for the traditional Lumberjack match between Damian Priest and John Morrison. The strategy of Morrison looked under control as he made the most of the first half and continued with his acrobatic moves. At one stage Morrison escaped all the lumberjacks in his charismatic way and surprised Priest. Just when it looked Morrison was gaining momentum, Priest got back into the match effortlessly. In the process, we also saw lumberjacks break down and Priest took advantage by suplexing Morrison from the top of the turnbuckle onto the lumberjacks. Priest then didn’t waste much time and roll down curtains on the match by hitting his finisher. Result: Damian Priest defeated Morrison via Pinfall.

 

WWE Raw Results – Lashley suffers shock defeat: Bobby Lashley Open Challenge vs Kofi Kingston: Surprise Suprise, it was Kofi who responded to an open challenge, but MVP right before the start of the match made it clear that this would be a non-title match. Kofi’s quickness proved to be a puzzle for the All-Mighty WWE Champion as he wasn’t able to contain Kofi initially. However, the tables turned soon after Lashley hit Kofi with an elbow on the face. Kofi tried to get back into the matchup in bits and pieces but every time Lashley had an answer to counter all his maneuvers. In the closing stage, Xavier Woods present at the ringside tried distracting the referee and in the process, MVP was about to hit Kofi who was near the ropes with his stick. But, Drew McIntyre came in all of a sudden and snatched the stick from MVP and hit it on the abdomen of Lashley. Kofi took the advantage of this attack and rolled up the ‘All-Mighty’ WWE Champion to sneak through a win. Result: Kofi defeated Lashley via Pinfall.
