WWE RAW REPORT: A LOT OF NEW FACES, A NEW CHAMPION, A TEN MAN TAG MATCH, THE MOST MUST SEE NIGHT HAS CHANGED

By Richard Trionfo on 2018-04-16 23:05:00

We are back with MizTV.

Miz is in the ring with Curtis Axel and Bo Dallas.

Miz welcomes everyone to MizTV.  He says Jinder Mahal and the Riott Squad have shaken things up but his guests are a seismic shift on Raw.

Miz brings out Sami Zayn and Kevin Owens.

As they make their way to the ring, the announcers wonder how this is possible.

We have a five man jumping hugging circle in the ring.

Miz says standing before you is the finest collection of talent ever assembled in one place.  This is bigger and better than the nWo.  Between them, they have more talent than the 1992 Olympic Dream Team.  Infinity War may be hitting the theaters next week, but you have the WWE's version of The Avengers.  They do not have to deal with an egomaniac like Shane McMahon or a wannabe actor in Paige.  They are calling the shots and they are in control.

Kurt Angle interrupts.  Kurt says Miz has no control over things.  Kevin and Sami had their chance to get on Raw last week, but they lost.

Kevin says there was an e-mail that was sent a few minutes ago.  Things have changed.  Sami tells Kurt he does not have to get out his phone and Sami reads the email, after putting on his glasses. 

Kurt, in light of recent events and your proclivity to make emotional decisions but he has no other option than to re-examine what happened with Sami and Kevin.  They both proved that they belong on Raw and to let them go would be a mistake of epic proportions.  As a result, I am granting Sami and Kevin Raw contracts.  Warmest regards, Stephanie McMahon.

Kevin asks if Sami is talking about Kurt's boss and if that means that Kurt and Sami are back on Raw and there is nothing that Kurt can do about it?  Sami and the others let out a huge YEP.

Miz asks if Kurt's whole career as Raw General Manager flashing before his eyes.

Kurt says he is surprised that Stephanie had time to write a letter because he figured that Stephanie would be in constant physical therapy.

Kurt says that they can say goodbye to Miz because Daniel Bryan was adamant to get Miz on Smackdown.

Miz tells Kurt he cannot do that.

Kurt says he can and he did.

Miz says he just made Smackdown go from the B Show to THE SHOW.  Miz says that him and the MizTourage will do on Smackdown what they did on Raw.

Kurt tells Miz that Axel and Dallas are going nowhere.  He is going to give Miz a going away present.  They will face Finn Balor, Seth Rollins, Bobby Lashley, Braun Strowman, and a Superstar making his Raw debut.  Kurt says they will miss Miz.

Bray Wyatt appears on the screen and he lets everyone know that they are here.

We go to commercial.

We are back and Sheamus and Cesaro are at the announce table to see who they face next Friday in Saudi Arabia.

After the match, we get a stare down with Sheamus and Cesaro on the announce table while Hardy and Wyatt are in the ring.

We go to commercial.

We are back and Sheamus and Cesaro walk in the back.  Sheamus says they have never seen a weirder looking tag team . . .

They see Tyler Breeze and Fandango.  Fandango says the Fashion Police have been transferred to a new precinct.  They comment on Sheamus' mohawks and their dresses.  They give Sheamus and Cesaro some tickets.

We take a look at the new faces from Raw last week and the newest members of the Raw roster thanks to the Superstar Shake Up.

We see what Ronda Rousey did to Stephanie McMahon last week on Raw.

Ronda and Kurt are in the office and Ronda says they were not going to hug it out.  Ronda says the experience at Wrestlemania was worth it.  Kurt tells Ronda that she impressed Hunter and Stephanie, but what will it mean for the Superstar Shake Up.

Kurt says he has a surprise for Ronda and it is Natalya.

Kurt says Natalya campaigned to get on Raw and she wanted a match.

Natalya says she wants to show that she is the best there is, the best there was, and the best there ever will be.

Miz asks Kevin and Sami about Shane and how Shane will treat him on Smackdown. 

Kevin and Sami tell Miz to focus on tonight and then he asks about Bo and Curtis.

Miz says they need to forget about what is in front of them and focus on the fact that this is his Raw finale.  It needs to be must see.
