Becky Lynch is the new WWE RAW and Smackdown women’s champion. The Champ Champ will bring both titles to RAW tonight inside Barclay’s Center. The “RAW after Mania” tonight promises to create new storylines where old ones have been concluded.
WWE RAW 4/8 Preview
In addition to Becky Lynch, several other newly crowned champions will be on tonight’s show. Seth Rollins, Finn Balor, Zach Ryder, & Curt Hawkins all have new championships as a result of their matches at WrestleMania and all will be on RAW tonight.
Becky Lynch Brings Both Belts To WWE RAW
Becky Lynch will bring both belts to RAW tonight. While WWE is giving little away as to what Becky will be doing on the show tonight, there will likely be some type of ceremony to honor her accomplishment.
Becky’s segment tonight raises other questions, however. For instance, will either Charlotte Flair or Ronda Rousey be on-hand? Or will Flair stick to Smackdown and Rousey ride off to the sunset? There are still a lot of unanswered questions at the top of WWE’s women’s divisions and we might get some answers tonight.
Seth Rollins Returns To RAW
Seth Rollins is the new Universal champion. He slew the beast at WrestleMania and now that beast has flown home and reportedly has more interest in Daniel Cormier’s title belt than the one Rollins now holds.
Rollins has promised to be the opposite kind of champion Brock was. The Architect plans to be a fighting champion which could mean he puts the title on the line tonight.
Drew McIntyre Not Expected To Go Away Quietly
Despite losing to Roman Reigns at WrestleMania on Sunday, Drew McIntyre is not expected to drop his rivalry with the Big Dog. McIntyre controlled much of his match against Reigns and sources are saying he plans on pursuing another match with the former Universal champion. We’ll likely find out more about this tonight.
Finn Balor’s 2nd Intercontinental Championship Reign Begins Tonight
Much like with Rollins, Balor says he plans to be a fighting champion. To that end, we could even see Balor put the title on the line tonight.
The Streak Is Broken
For the first time in 5 years, the RAW after Mania will also feature the fall-out from a long streak ending. Instead of the Undertaker’s WrestleMania streak coming to an end at WM30, however, it’s Curt Hawkins long losing streak coming to an end at WM35.
Hawkins and Ryder pulled off the upset over the Revival last night. Scott Dawson & Dash Wilder will likely be looking for a rematch soon, however, so time will tell how long the new champs can keep their current winning streak alive.
