Monday Night Raw: 8 om EST
Show opens up as Corey Graves states that, during this shakeup, we have no idea who will show up tonight. Then John Cena’s music hits but it turns out to be The Miz & Maryse doing their parody dressed as Cena & Nikki Bella. They start doing their comedic shtick and then Dean Ambrose’s music hits and out comes the Intercontinental Champion. So these are the first three to move from Smackdown to Raw.
Ambrose starts talking to Miz & Maryse as though they really are Cena & Nikki. Miz ends up getting annoyed at Ambrose’s apparent lack of awareness concerning their act and reveals their true identities. Ambrose hangs his mouth open feigning surprise and states, “In that case…” and then delivers a Dirty Deeds to Miz.
Sami Zayn is seen pestering the new Raw GM Kurt Angle, trying to find out what his fate is going to be during this shakeup because the suspense is killing him. The Miz comes in to interrupt Sami, just as Jinder Mahal did last week, and starts complaining about being disrespected. Sami takes exception to being interrupted so rudely and the two start to beef. Angle says that he’s not their to play politics. Sami is still on Raw for now and Miz will have to earn respect. He makes a match between Sami and Miz.
The New Day (Xavier Woods & Big E) come out to the ring and call out The Revival. And so out comes The Revival to answer the challenge.
Tag Team Match: The New Day vs. The Revival
The Revival start taking it to New Day early. Commercial break.
Back again and Scott Dawson hits Woods with a german suplex and pins for a 2-count. Woods finally gets a tag to Big E who comes in hot. He hits Dash Wilder with a Belly To Belly and then starts his “New Day Rocks” clap. His hesitation allows The Revival to avoid any pin attempt.
The New Day ends up getting outsmarted and The Revival hits The Shatter Machine for the win.
Winners: The Revival
