WWE RAW Results, winners, and grades: Rey Mysterio gets his mask back

The last RAW before WrestleMania was exciting as is the case every year. However, the anticipated Brock Lesnar versus Roman Reigns brawl didn’t take place. The huge talking point was Bobby Lashley’s return as The Almighty challenged Omos to a match at The Show of Shows which was later made official too.

And, we start with the RAW results, winners, and grades.

Brock Lesnar kicked off the show as he made his entrance to a huge pop. A recap of what happened last week on SmackDown was shown. Lesnar said the loud-mouth Paul Heyman has been doing the talking for him over the last few weeks.

He admitted as well that he isn’t too good on the mic but the crowd helped him along. They did the “what” and Lesnar acknowledged them saying that “Austin is gonna be there too”.

Lesnar said that he’s in a great mood because, in 6 days, he will be able to get his hands on Reigns. He claimed that he will hold both titles over his shoulders when the match ends.

Rey Mysterio versus The Miz

The first match of the night featured the A-lister Miz taking on Rey Mysterio. Last week, Miz removed the mask off Rey Mysterio. The Master of 619 was out for revenge. Miz cut a promo before Rey came out. He said that he gave Rey’s mask to Logan Paul.

Dominik and Rey followed it up with respective frog splashes to end the segment as Paul looked on in fear of what’s to come at ‘Mania.

Omos versus The Viking Raiders – Handicap match

Omos came to the ring to face The Viking Raiders in a handicap match. Last week he won another handicap match beating Apollo Crews and Commander Azeez with ease. He wanted tougher competition. Tougher competition came in the form of the former RAW Tag Team Champions. A huge clothesline took out Eric and resulted in a count-out victory for the gigantic Omos. Ivar looked to take advantage but a huge kick took him out.

Omos was interviewed after the match and asked about any opponent that he wishes to face at WrestleMania. Before he could name somebody, Bobby Lashley’s music hit and he made his way to the ring for the first time since the Elimination Chamber PPV.

The crowd chanted for Bobby as he turned face. Omos pushed Bobby and looked to dominate the former WWE champion but the latter took him off his feet with a diving shoulder tackle. Bobby pointed to the WrestleMania sign and that only meant one thing. The two powerhouses will clash at The Grandest Stage of Them All.

Result – Omos beat The Viking Raiders

He said that it’s Steve and not Stone Cold that’s coming to WrestleMania. Owens said that Austin won’t come to the KO show at ‘Mania to not pick a fight as he is smart enough to know what will happen to him if he faces the former Universal Champion. Owens said that Austin will acknowledge him as the new Stone Cold. Owens has done a great job in building this rivalry single-handedly.

Austin Theory versus Ricochet

This match was fast-paced but had some great spots of athleticism, especially on the part of the Intercontinental Champion Ricochet. Ricochet looked in control of the match with his unique offensive strikes. He went up onto the top rope looking for a 630 senton but was knocked down by Theory. Vince McMahon’s protege delivered the RP1 to seal a big win.

It was unfortunate that the match lasted less than 2 minutes. Fans were left wanting more from the two immensely talented superstars.

Theory had faced the United States Champion Finn Balor last week on RAW. This week, he went head to head with the Intercontinental champion. Theory is getting some good matches and it seems WWE has zeroed in on him to be one of the stalwarts of the company in a few years’ time. Austin Theory will take on Pat McAfee at WrestleMania.
