April 27th Episode of Raw Results

Commentary Team Runs Through the Evening’s Card

Samoa Joe is back on commentary.

MVP’s VIP Lounge

The lounge includes the three people from the Men’s ladder match. Mysterio comes out first followed by Aleister Black and finally Apollo Crews. MVP picks Apollo Crews. He asks what it means to become Mr. Money in the Bank. He asks the question and interrupts him to explain he already knows. He just wants to hear from Apollo Crews. Zelina Vega comes out with her crew.

She says nobody cares about the three men in the ring, but the WWE can’t stop talking about Andrade, Angel Garza, and Austin Theory. The four of them come to the ring with Zelina Vega saying that if they go to Money in the Bank, its going to cause the briefcase to go to Smackdown. She wants Black, Crews, and Mysterio to give up their spots.

Mysterio says she came out to pick a fight. That caused Black to smile, and they attacked to send Raw to commercial.

Mysterio, Black, and Crews defeats Andrade, Garza, Theory

Garza offered to shake Black’s hand. Black obliged, but immediately pulled Garza into a hold. Crews tagged in allowing Garza to tag in Theory. Crews immediately used a delayed vertical suplex to secure the advantage. Mysterio tagged into the match. When Rey went for a double 619 on Garza and Theory, Andrade cut him down, but Mysterio put him in position for a 619 moments later. Theory and Garza pulled Andrade out of the way, but Black and Crews then hit tandem dives to send Raw to a commercial break.

Back from the break, Vega’s team had Black isolated. He eventually got the tab to Mysterio who swung the match back in their favor momentarily, but Garza sent Mysterio to the outside and ripped off his pants as Raw went back to commercial.

Back from commercial, the trio had Mysterio isolated. After a spike DDT to Andrade, Mysterio struggled but made it to his corner where he tagged in Apollo Crews. Apollo ran wild, but the numbers eventually caught up with him. The match broke down, and Andrade achieved a near fall after hitting his spinning back elbow. When Andrade went for the Hammerlock DDT, Crews countered out, hit a pop-up sit-down powerbomb for the pinfall victory.

Seth Rollins comes out first and then Drew McIntyre. Drew tells Jerry, “you know how these things go.” Jerry leaves. Drew signs the contract and passes the contract to Seth Rollins. And then Seth picks up the microphone to say that he doesn’t want to do this. It is about getting the WWE championship where it needs to be, and that Drew will make a good champion someday. Drew isn’t a leader.

After Seth goes on for a bit, Drew says its clear to everyone now. He says Rollins is “full of shit.” McIntyre says he will not Rollins win the championship. He gives Seth some advice. 1. Shut your mouth. Nobody wants to hear you talk. 2. You came at me a couple weeks ago, but didn’t finish the job. At Money in the Bank, finish the job.

Rollins says that the big picture will become clear. McIntyre slammed Rollins face into the table, gave him a headbutt, and then a Claymore. Murphy jumped Drew from behind. When Drew came back, Rollins moved out of the way and McIntyre hit Murphy with a Claymore.
