Well, well, well, if it isn’t our favorite Raw results April 10 recap. We all know what happened last week with Brock Lesnar’s Judas-like betrayal, but this week was all about picking up the pieces and moving on. And by moving on, I mean body slamming each other into oblivion.
The women’s tag team title match was a true test of strength and endurance, featuring the iconic Lita and the unstoppable Becky Lynch against Liv Morgan and Raquel Rodriguez. I’m pretty sure I burned more calories just watching that match than I have in the last decade.
So, strap in, folks, because this week’s episode of WWE Raw had enough drama, intrigue, and spandex to make even the toughest of us sweat.
(Winner)Finn Balor vs. Rey Mysterio
Well, well, well, folks. It looks like we’ve got ourselves a thrilling episode of WWE here. Rey Mysterio, the lucha libre legend, came out to a ‘raucous ovation,’ whatever that means. He talked about his feud with Dominik for what felt like an eternity, and surprise, surprise, Dom had to come out and issue a response. Groundbreaking stuff, really.
“They went back and forth, talking about what happened at WrestleMania and on last week’s Raw. And just when we thought we couldn’t handle any more riveting storytelling, they tease the idea of Bad Bunny being involved. Wow, I’m on the edge of my seat.
“After a commercial break, we finally got to the match between Finn Balor and Rey Mysterio. And let me tell you, it was pretty solid. Balor had the upper hand for most of the match, but Rey made a comeback in the second half. And thanks to some help from Dom and a chain, Balor was able to secure the win. But let’s be honest, folks, we know these two are capable of much more than what they delivered tonight.
“Oh, and did I mention that Balor worked a match about a week after having 14 staples put into his head from a ladder match? What a madman. And let’s not forget about the ‘subtle pattern’ on Balor’s gear that was only visible up close. That’s the kind of hard-hitting analysis you come to me for, folks. Raw results April 10.
Becky Lynch and Trish Stratus vs. (Winner)Liv Morgan and Raquel Rodriguez
Looks like the WWE is bringing us some real Shakespearean-level drama tonight. Lita got attacked backstage, so Trish Stratus took her place in the women’s tag title match with Lynch against Rodriguez and Morgan. Talk about being a good sport.
“Trish may not have been an official champ, but she sure fought like one. And you know what? She and Lynch did a fantastic job battling Rodriguez’s power and Morgan’s high-flying antics. But, of course, the challengers had to keep us on our toes.
“After the break, Morgan made a hot tag, and Rodriguez gave The Man a run for her money with some powerful throws. But Trish came in like a wrecking ball and took out Rodriguez at ringside, setting up the Chick Kick. Except Morgan pulled a fast one and rolled Trish up for the pin, snagging the tag titles for herself and Rodriguez.
“Now, Lynch didn’t seem too distraught about the loss and even raised Trish’s arm after the match. But let’s be honest, we all saw it coming. As Lynch turned her back, Trish attacked her and delivered a Chick Kick that would make even a chicken proud. Oh, the drama.
“This match had some flaws, but it still exceeded expectations. All four women put in some solid work, and Trish looked like she was having more fun in the ring than a pig in mud. And can we just retire the ‘Tower of Doom’ spot already? It’s been done to death more times than the superkick.”
Bobby Lashley vs. Bronson Reed – (Double loss)
It looks like we’ve got ourselves a brawl between two absolute units on WWE Raw Results April 10. Bronson Reed and Bobby Lashley faced off in a singles bout, and boy, did they deliver.
They wasted no time with fancy moves and went straight for each other’s throats, backing each other into the corner and exchanging strikes. Lashley tried to show off his strength, but Reed wasn’t having any of it and countered his suplex attempt.
After a commercial break, Lashley gained momentum with some shoulder thrusts and a huge suplex, but Reed fought back with everything he had. The match ended in a count-out as the two big boys continued to duke it out outside the ring.
I tell you, this was like watching two slabs of meat slap each other around. It didn’t need fancy technical moves to be entertaining. And let’s not forget about the officials who had to come down and break up the fight like a couple of bouncers at a rowdy pub. Classic.
Cody Rhodes cuts a promo
The Son of the Dream, Cody Rhodes came out to give us a little promo about his loss at WrestleMania. He apologized, but then gave us an ‘impassioned speech’ about how this is just a ‘bump in the road.’ How inspiring.
“But then, things got interesting. He started talking about Brock Lesnar. Apparently, Rhodes is scared of The Beast, but still wants to fight him. Ah, the drama.
“It was an uninterrupted promo, and Rhodes did a great job carrying it all by himself. I mean, he had just a couple of minutes to work with, but he made it as interesting as possible. Even though this feud is not what most people had hoped for after ‘Mania, Rhodes made it work.
(Winner)The Usos vs. Alpha Academy
The Usos took on Alpha Academy in their first post-championship appearance since losing the titles to Sami Zayn and Kevin Owens. And what a match it was. I mean, I was on the edge of my seat the whole time.
“Chad Gable was trying to get Otis to forget about his modeling career, so he had the big man start the match. I guess Gable doesn’t want Otis to be a successful model AND wrestler. The nerve.
“The action was good, but they had a somewhat slow start. It was almost like they were trying to remember their moves in between taunts and interactions with the crowd. I mean, who needs to actually fight when you can make faces at the fans, right?
“And speaking of faces, let’s talk about The Usos. They were out for blood. They wanted to show everyone that they’re still one of the most dominant tag teams in the game. And boy did they deliver. Otis had a good run after a hot tag, but it wasn’t enough to stop The Usos from hitting Gable with the 1D. That’s right, the 1D. It’s like they’re trying to confuse us with their moves.
(Winner)Iyo Sky vs. Michin vs. Piper Niven
Welcome back, folks, to another edition of WWE Raw Results April 10. We’ve got some juicy drama for you tonight. Bayley was supposed to be in the match with Mia Yim and Piper Niven, but had a disagreement with her teammates, and Iyo Sky got the spot instead. Cue the tension.
Unfortunately, Sky got knocked out of the ring almost immediately, so Yim and Niven had a little tête-à-tête until The Genius of the Sky came in with a missile dropkick. Now that’s an entrance.
The HBIC tried to take control, but Sky had other plans. After a break, all three women had their periods of dominance. After a fast-paced sequence, Sky pinned Yim following a moonsault that hit both women. I don’t know about you, but that had to hurt.
While the match had some great spots, there wasn’t much more to it than that. It’s nice to see Sky get a semi-high-profile win, so that’s the upside to this whole thing. But let’s hope for more drama and less ring-tossing in the future.
Kevin Owens vs. (Winner)Solo Sikoa
“Good evening, ladies and gentlemen. Solo Sikoa was accompanied to the ring by The Usos for his main event match against Kevin Owens. Ah, the sweet sound of family drama.
“These two have had multiple chances to work together in recent months, so they lost that awkwardness that comes from facing a new opponent a long time ago. At this point, they probably know each other’s favorite snacks and what kind of shampoo they use.
“And speaking of working together, the more two wrestlers work together, the better their performances usually become. It’s like they have a sixth sense about each other’s moves. Or maybe they just have really good communication skills.
“They had a long time to work and they packed a lot into the minutes they were given, so it would be hard to recap everything. But trust me, it was good. It was really, really good. Although, it was also a little on the predictable side. I mean, The Usos were at ringside and Sami Zayn was unable to be at the show. We all knew the odds were stacked against KO before he even got to the ring.
“But then, Sikoa got the cheap win with some interference from his brothers. Surprise, surprise. And just when we thought it was all over, Zayn and Riddle ran into the arena and to the ring to make the save. Ah, the sweet sound of chaos.
“That’s all for now, folks. Tune in next time for more family drama and surprise run-ins.”
