Uncooked airs tonight (Apr. 19) reside from the ThunderDome within the Yuengling Heart in Tampa, Florida. That is the second Uncooked episode through the 5 week construct in direction of the upcoming WrestleMania Backlash occasion on Might 16.
The Damage Enterprise is taking new candidates
Drew McIntyre has earned a rematch towards WWE champion Bobby Lashley. However earlier than that match can occur, McIntyre may need to fend off the remnants of RETRIBUTION.
Final week’s Uncooked ended with the cliffhanger (I assume?) of T-BAR and MACE ambushing McIntyre within the ring, with MVP watching on from the doorway ramp. WWE is hoping that’s the type of compelling hook that may get you to tune in tonight to see if The Damage Enterprise is including some new members.
If MVP and Lashley really have good enterprise instincts, they gained’t taint their model with the stench of RETRIBUTION. It’s nothing private towards T-BAR and MACE, however till they ditch these silly masks and provide you with higher names, they’re doomed to fail. Or perhaps doomed to eat some Claymore kicks over the following few weeks, on the very least.
Lashley has said that the Damage Enterprise can be making adjustments over the following few weeks. There have to be a swerve coming right here, as a result of he can’t presumably be speaking about including T-BAR and MACE…proper?
The title scene
One of many greatest moments of final week’s Uncooked was the return of Charlotte Aptitude, who instantly thrust herself into the enterprise of the brand new Uncooked girls’s champion, Rhea Ripley. The Queen is booked in a singles match towards Asuka tonight. Don’t maintain your breath ready for a win from The Empress right here. This match will finish in one among two methods – both Aptitude wins, or there can be a screwy ending with no definitive winner. The previous state of affairs will occur if Aptitude is getting a singles match with Ripley at Backlash, whereas the latter state of affairs is extra seemingly if a triple risk match for Rhea’s title is on the horizon.
AJ Types and Omos grew to become the brand new Uncooked tag staff champions at WrestleMania 37, however they didn’t seem on final week’s Uncooked. A celebration could be so as tonight, in addition to a sign of which staff can be coming for his or her belts first. Will the returning Viking Raiders already be positioned proper right into a title feud, or will New Day attempt to regain their gold?
Equally, Sheamus gained the United States championship at WrestleMania 37, however he additionally didn’t make an look on final week’s Uncooked. I’ve a sense that Sheamus hasn’t seen the final of
Matt Riddle and his scooter simply but.
Shayna Baszler and Nia Jax have a transparent risk to their Girls’s tag staff titles on SmackDown, however the identical can’t be stated in regards to the competitors on the Uncooked roster. Final week’s angle included the champs ridiculing Mandy Rose over her fall at WrestleMania 37, just for Nia Jax to slide and fall throughout a tag match towards Rose and Dana Brooke. Mandy and Dana then ran away from the match as a result of they didn’t wish to cope with an irate Jax. Riveting stuff right here, people. I don’t even know that this angle warrants any development tonight; maybe we’ll get one other singles match that Shayna Baszler will lose in three minutes.
R-Fact’s present reign as 24/7 champion has lasted about 4 weeks. With low-carders like Tucker and Kalisto being released by WWE final week, there could be a pair spots open for some new jabronis to chase after jobber gold. What are you as much as as of late, Cedric Alexander and Shelton Benjamin?
Different stuff to control
– For the primary time ever, Braun Strowman will go one-on-one with Randy Orton tonight.
– It’s time to see if Damian Priest will sink or swim with no celeb by his aspect on Uncooked. WWE didn’t waste any time in having Priest take his first most important roster loss final week, which is trigger for concern.
– It seems that Alexa Bliss and Bray Wyatt are going their separate methods for now. Bliss might very effectively be bringing her own version of The Fiend into the ladies’s division, whereas Wyatt is understandably searching for a contemporary begin along with his Firefly Enjoyable Home, in an try to maneuver on from the debacle at WrestleMania 37.
– Adnan Virk had a tough first night sitting within the Uncooked commentary chair final week. Will he fare any higher tonight?
4 weeks till WrestleMania Backlash!
What is going to you be searching for on Uncooked tonight?
