The April 29th, 2019 episode of WWE RAW aired live from Rupp Arena in Lexington, KY. In addition to the takeaways below, another episode of Firefly Fun House aired during tonight’s show.
Here are 7 takeaways from this week’s episode of RAW:
7Strowman, Ricochet, Corbin & McIntyre Will Be In The MITB Ladder Match
Alexa Bliss announced the RAW participants in the men’s Money in the Bank Ladder Match.
Braun Strowman, Ricochet, Drew McIntyre, and Baron Corbin were announced as the RAW participants. McIntyre confronted Corbin about stealing a victory from him last week and vowed to win the MITB Ladder Match.
McIntyre told Ricochet Strowman told everyone to shut up and claimed that nobody has what it takes to stop him.
Strowman and Ricochet then battled Corbin and McIntyre in a tag match. Corbin and McIntyre controlled the match early and isolated Ricochet in the ring. Strowman chased Corbin around the ring but wound up running into a Claymore from McIntyre. Corbin tried to steal the pinfall from McIntyre after he did all the work but it blew up in his face. Strowman got back up and planted Corbin with the Running Powerslam. Ricochet followed it up with the Shooting Star Press for the pinfall victory.
It is absurd how many episodes of RAW and SmackDown start off with an “impromptu” tag match. The match wasn’t entertaining because there was no reason to care about it at all.
