Welcome to the WWE Raw results for Monday, April 24, 2017 from Kansas City, Missouri. Tonight’s show was the final installment of Raw before Sunday’s WWE Payback pay-per-view. Among the featured stars on the show were Dean Ambrose, Chris Jericho, The Miz, The Hardys, Sheamus, Cesaro and more. Also, Kalisto challenges Braun Strowman to a Dumpster match, making for the first time the match took place on Raw. Here are all of the quick results and highlights for the latest episode of Monday Night Raw.
The opening featured Chris Jericho with The Highlight Reel talking about how he’d be headed to SmackDown once he defeats Kevin Owens for the US title at Payback. The Miz and Maryse came out to interrupt and had the ringside personnel switch the ring set to MizTV. Dean Ambrose came out to interrupt them and had them change the show to the Ambrose Asylum. He ended up talking about forgiveness with Jericho and gave him a gift, a new light up jacket (suit coat with Christmas lights on it) since he destroyed his old one. Miz complained after Jericho put it on, so Ambrose said he got him a gift too, then hit a Dirty Deeds on him. Ambrose left and Maryse checked on Miz. Jericho asked her if she knows what happens when she’s married to a “stupid idiot” and then told her she just made the list.
Matt Hardy defeated Sheamus via pinfall. Jeff Hardy got on the apron to argue with Sheamus. Cesaro came over as Hardy dropped off. The distraction gave Matt the advantage as he kicked Sheamus and then hit a Twist of Fate for the pinfall win. Post-match, Cesaro was still jawing at the Hardys in the ring. Sheamus recovered and told Cesaro to calm down. Sheamus put out a hand for Matt who eventually shook hands. Jeff did the same with Cesaro.
Miz and Maryse interrupted Kurt Angle’s phone call backstage to complain about what happened earlier. Angle booked Miz in a tag match with a partner of his choice against Ambrose and Jericho later.
Jack Gallagher and Austin Aries defeated Neville & TJ Perkins via pinfall. Late in the match, things broke down with everyone getting involved. Gallagher headbutted Neville who fell to the outside. Perkins came over to try to kick Jack but he caught his leg. Gallager spun him to face Aries who then hit his whirling punch move to level Perkins and pin him.
Kalisto defeated Braun Stromwan in a Dumpster Match. A dumpster was set up at the bottom of the ramp next to the ring, with the winner the first guy to toss his opponent into a dumpster. Kalisto got in some early strikes and a spinning jawbreaker move to stun Braun, but moments later the big man took over. He caught Kalisto jumping off the corner and then tossed him across the ring. From there, Braun rushed at him and splashed Kalisto in the corner. At one point, Braun tried to dump Kalisto over the ropes into the dumpster, but Kalisto held him in a suplex position and tried to pull Strowman over the ropes. Braun eventually tossed Kalisto back across the ring. Later, Braun tried to press Kalisto overhead near the ropes to toss in the dumpster. Kalisto kicked his legs and then slipped off into the ring. Braun tried to grab him, but Kalisto hit a dropkick into Braun’s legs and he fell into the dumpster.
Post-match, Braun took out his frustration by beating up Kalisto in the ring with multiple one hand slams. He brought him to the outside where he put him into the dumpster and shut the lids on it. He wheeled the dumpster bin up the ramp with Kalisto inside. Jamie Noble, Finlay and other WWE staffer came out to tell Braun to stop, but he chased them off. Several refs came out to help but he yelled at them. Next, he cinched a strap across the lids on the dumpster and then shoved it off the stage to the floor down below.
After the commercial break, Kalisto was shown being loaded into an ambulance via stretcher.
They showed a Roman Reigns video package ahead of Sunday’s Payback match with Braun.
Bray Wyatt showed up on the big screen to cut a promo about the House of Horrors match.
Dana Brooke defeated Alicia Fox via pinfall. During the match, Emma came down the ramp to watch from the ringside area. Alicia got in some offense early, but missed later on her scissors kick attempt. Dana picked her up on her shoulder and hit a spin around slam for the pinfall. Post-match, Emma got in the ring and said something to Dana, then hugged her. Dana seemed taken aback by it, as Emma left and walked up the ramp.
Enzo Amore, Big Cass & Seth Rollins vs. Samoa Joe, Gallows and Anderson – The heels ambushed Enzo and Cass before the match and left Enzo laid out at ringside. Seth Rollins’ music hit and he came down to fight with Gallows, Anderson and Joe. They got in the ring and cleared out the heels, then left to go check on Enzo. After a commercial break, Kurt Angle said Enzo can’t compete so he introduced a replacement – Finn Balor.
Seth Rollins, Big Cass & Finn Balor defeated Samoa Joe, Luke Gallows & Karl Anderson via pinfall. The close saw Rollins gain control of Karl Anderson in the ring. He set up for the Pedigree but then decided otherwise. Instead, he debuted his new move where he spun Anderson around to deliver a knee to the face followed by a pinfall.
Sasha Banks defeated Alexa Bliss via countout. The match came about as Alexa had come to the ring to make fun of all the women of Raw talking about what they’d do, when all she does is win. Bayley came out to interrupt and Alexa made fun of her more, vowing to beat her down and take her title in front of her dad in San Jose Sunday. Sasha came out to get involved leading to the match. During it, the two women’s stars each had their share of offense but Sasha eventually gained control. When she had a Bank Statement locked on, Alexa was close enough to the ropes to break it and escape the ring. From there, “Five Feet of Fury” walked up the ramp and was counted out. Bayley attempted to grab her from the announcers table area and bring her to the ring but Bliss slipped away backstage. With Bayley headed to the ring, Bliss rushed back out to knock her down. Sasha rushed up the ramp to chase off Bliss.
Apollo Crews defeated Curtis Hawkins via pinfall. Hawkins had come to the ring and issued and open challenge. Crews was able to hit an enzuigiri and power bomb to grab the win. Post-match, Titus O’Neil arrived to the ring to raise up Crews’ arm and take a selfie with him. He talked business with Crews as if he was his agent.
The Miz & Bray Wyatt fought Dean Ambrose & Chris Jericho to a no contest. Miz was ordered earlier to find a tag partner by Kurt Angle. However, when Miz got to the ring no partner showed up. He tried to call off the match and head backstage to see what was up, but Angle arrived out and said the match would still take place. Towards the end, it seemed like Jericho and Ambrose had the numbers, but things moved to the stage where Ambrose was going to do more damage to Miz on the announcers table. However, Bray Wyatt’s sound and video effects went off. When the lights returned, Wyatt was up on the table and took out Ambrose.
From there, he seemed to be helping Miz against Jericho and Ambrose. Wyatt ordered Miz to bring Jericho to the ring, so he did, but as Miz got in, Jericho hit a Codebreaker on him. Wyatt hit Sister Abigail on Jericho and stood over him. Miz was back up and stood next to Wyatt smiling, then put a hand on his shoulder as if they were an alliance. Bray looked over at his hand and then suddenly grabbed Miz to put him down with Sister Abigail too. The show closed with Wyatt posing over Miz.
