WWE RAW REPORT: WHO IS THE NUMBER ONE CONTENDER?, WHO DID NOT MAKE THEIR DEBUT FROM NXT TONIGHT?, A CELEBRATION OF WOMEN'S WRESTLING . . . AND A WALK OUT, AND MORE

By Richard Trionfo on 2016-04-04 23:05:00

We are back and Roman Reigns comes to the ring, and I guess Dallas does not love the new WWE Champion.

Roman tells everyone to come on.  Roman says he is not a bad guy.  He says he is not a good guy.  He is THE guy.  That is why on the biggest Wrestlemania of all time, he beat Triple H's ass.  He told Shane McMahon if anyone wants this, bring their ass out now.

Chris Jericho makes his way to the ring to respond to Roman's challenge.

Chris tells everyone they can shut their damn mouths and listen to him.  Chris says that you say are THE guy, you are just a guy from where he is standing.  You are another idiot like everyone in here tonight.  Chris says he has seen them come and he has seen them go during his time in the WWE.  He has proven that he is the best in the world at what he does.  Jericho tells the people to shut up if they are going to try to hijack the show.  Jericho says they are surrounded by idiots.  You cannot compare to him.  The internet favorite AJ Styles cannot compare to him.  He beat AJ Styles last night and he buried him in the ring.

Jericho demands that Roman put him at the head of the line and he wants to know if Roman understands what he is saying.

AJ Styles comes out to the ring.

Before AJ can speak, Kevin Owens makes his way to the ring.

Sami Zayn makes his way to the ring too.  

Someone page Teddy Long.

Roman tells Zayn to back off and Zayn comes into the ring and he punches Owens.  Jericho fights with Styles while Zayn sends Owens to the floor.  Zayn looks at Roman and then hits a flip dive.  Styles is sent to the floor by Jericho.  Reigns with a spear to Jericho.

We are reminded of what happened at the start of the show when Shane McMahon was given control of Raw (even though Shane would only get control of Raw if he beat the Undertaker, something he did not do and that Vince pointed out as well).

We go to commercial.

We are back and Roman Reigns walks in the back and he stops to talk to Shane McMahon.  Shane says that Roman will be interested in the main event.  It will be a Fatal Four Way Number One Contender Match featuring Chris Jericho, Sami Zayn, Kevin Owens, and AJ Styles.

Baron Corbin says if you don't know who he is, he does not care.  This trophy is the only thing you need to know.  He has carved a path of devastation and broken dreams on his way to the WWE.  It will be the End of Days for anyone who gets in his way.

Match Number Four:  Baron Corbin (with his Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal Trophy) versus Dolph Ziggler

Ziggler avoids Corbin in the corner.  Corbin grabs Ziggler and sends him into the corner.  Ziggler with punches and drop kick.  Corbin with a back elbow to Ziggler.  Ziggler is sent to the apron and he drops Corbin on the top rope.  Ziggler goes for a springboard move but Corbin with a punch to send Ziggler to the floor.  We go to commercial.

We are back and Corbin with a nerve hold on Ziggler.  Ziggler stomps on the foot but Corbin holds on to the nerve hold.  Ziggler with punches and he gets free.  Ziggler with an uppercut when Corbin charges into the corner.  Corbin goes through the ropes when Ziggler moves.  Corbin charges at Ziggler and Ziggler moves, forcing Corbin shoulder first into the ring post.  Ziggler struggles to get back to his feet and he hits two splashes into the corner followed by punches.  Ziggler tries for the neck breaker but Corbin escapes.  Ziggler with a Hesitation DDT and then Ziggler starts to limp.  Corbin blocks a Super Kick and Ziggler with a kick and Fameasser for a near fall.

Corbin avoids a Zig Zag and then he hits Deep Six for a near fall.  Ziggler goes to the floor and Corbin follows.  Corbin with a boot that sends Ziggler into the crowd over the ringside barrier.  Corbin sends Ziggler into garbage cans in the crowd.  The referee calls for the bell.

Double Count Out

Corbin tells the referee this is on him.  Corbin brings Ziggler back into teh ringside area.  Ziggler with punches and head butts, but Corbin with a punch followed by End of Days on the floor.

We go to commercial.

We are back and it is time to recap what happened during the No Holds Barred Street Fight and Suplex City Tour.

Zack Ryder has something to say before his match.  Ryder says last night was the greatest night of his life.  All of his wildest dreams came true and he finally had his Wrestlemania moment.  He says he took a photo with Razor Ramon as a kid and he held Razor's Intercontinental Title.  This time they took another photo and Razor was holding his title.  Zack says there is someone he has to thank and he thanks his father for always being there for hiim and always having his back and taking him to shows at Madison Square Garden.

Miz comes out and says this is so touching and heartwarming.  You had your Wrestlemania moment in front of your family.  You are a flash in the pan, a one hit wonder.  You ruined his Wrestlemania moment in front of his friends, family, and wife.  He was inches away and he had the leather in his fingers.  Then you pushed him off the ladder.

Ryder says it sucks to be you bro.

Miz says it does not suck to be him.  You were lucky to be in that match and lucky to have that title.  To prove that your name should be mentioned among Razor Ramon, Shawn Michaels and the Miz.

Ryder says he has nothing to prove.

Miz says if he was Ryder, he would want to prove he was not a fluke and that he is not all hype.

Ryder says the match is on.

Match Number Five:  Zack Ryder versus Miz for the Intercontinental Title

They lock up and Ryder with a side head lock and Miz with a shoulder tackle.  Ryder with a drop kick.  MIz with an Irish whip but Ryder gets his knees up and he hits a missile drop kick for a near fall.  Miz with a kick but Ryder with a forearm and hits a rana from the turnbuckles.  Ryder with a baseball slide that sends Miz into the ringside barrier.

We go to commercial.

We are back and Ryder and Miz exchange punches.  Ryder goes for a clothesline but Miz drops down and Ryder goes over the top rope.  Miz goes to the floor and he sends Ryder back into the ring and gets a near fall.  Miz punches Ryder.  Miz with a knee to the back and he stretches Ryder.  Ryder with a face plant and hits a flying clothesline and forearm into the corner.  Miz swats Ryder away on a missile drop kick and Miz hits a DDT for a near fall.  Miz avoids the Rough Ryder and Miz misses a boot.  Ryder with a rollup for a near fall.  Miz with a kick and he tries for a suplex and Ryder lands his feet and hits a neck breaker for a near fall.  Ryder goes up top and Miz punches him.

Miz sets for a superplex but Ryder drops Miz on the top rope.  Ryder sets for the Elbow drop and he connects but Miz gets his foot on the ropes to stop the count.  Miz holds the ropes and the referee pulls Ryder away.  Miz with a kick and he sets for the Awesome Clothesline but Ryder moves.  Miz hits the turnbuckles and Ryder with a running forearm and Miz goes down.  Ryder sets for the Broski Boot and Miz rolls to the floor.  Ryder with a baseball slide and it sends Miz into the ringside barrier.  Miz sends Ryder into the ringside barrier and Miz hot shots Ryder on the ringside barrier in front of Ryder's dad.

Miz has words with Ryder's father and he pushes Miz down.  Ryder with a clothesline on the floor and Maryse makes her way to ringside and she yells at Ryder's Father.  She slaps Zack's father and Miz with the Skull Crushing Finale for the three count.

Winner:  Miz

After the match, Miz celebrates in the ring with his wife while Ryder suffers the loss in front of his father.

Renee Young is in the interview area with Kevin Owens.  Renee asks Kevin about the loss.

Kevin says he was in there with six other guys and ladders.  Does that sound fair.  Renee brings up Sami Zayn and Kevin says Sami won't leave him alone.  He did not lose the title, Sami robbed him of that title.  Now he is on to bigger and better things.  Speaking of better, Shane knows that he is better than everyone.  That is why he is in the Number One Match.  Then he is going to destroy the Roman Empire and win the WWE Championship.  Sami might have cost him last night, but Sami is not costing him tonight.  The road to KOMania 2 begins.

Ric Flair and Charlotte are in the back and Shane stops by to talk.

We go to commercial.
