Ah I didn't realize you were doing this on TEW, I thought you were just free writing this all. I like that more just for the added challenge with injuries and contract situations where normal BTBs are just free realm creative writing. Do you mind posting your grades for your future shows then? I just like seeing how things do in the game and then compare them to my personal opinions.

I can do. I mostly use it for injuries and due to Raw being 3 hours can't fit everything in but I will do my best to post my grades for the show in future posts. May have to look some of them up as I copy them from the other site.

Gambit BTB! :proud

Canceling 205 :sodone:

But I don't blame you for not wanting to write it lmaooo
I don't blame him. I would cancel it, too. There's really no reason to separate the Cruiserweights.

You should be be able to put them in a couple matches on the main shows and probably a match on Main Event every week as well.

100% true in concept and I expect him to do it fine in the BTB, but if WWE canceled 205 irl I'd be pissed bc I'd expect the one or two matches a week to be nowhere near the level of freedom the guys are allowed on 205 to put on great matches which has made it one of my favorite weekly shows. I've noticed this year the PPV pre-show matches are considerably worse than their weekly matches and I really think it's bc they just go all out for the weekly show bc they don't have to worry about overshadowing anything. Fuck a couple times they've put a title rematch from the PPV the very next show and it's been better as well. But yeah, no problem with it in the BTB and theoretically I wouldn't have a problem if they did it irl, but I wouldn't trust WWE to do it well if they did.

Time for HHH to steal more ideas :side:

Raw:
April 15th 2019
Montreal, Quebec, Canada:

Monday Night Raw starts with Seth Rollins making his way to the ring. Talks about wanting this to be a new era and says he is fighting champion so want to know who his next challenger is. Paige's music hits getting a mixed reaction, mostly confusion. Says she has been made commissioner of Raw after her work on Smackdown Live as general manager. Promises to do what she did on Smackdown and make it about the stars. Says the main event tonight will be a fatal 5-way match with the winner fighting Seth Rollins at Money in the Bank. The competitors are Bobby Lashley, Baron Corbin, Braun Strowman and 2 new superstars debuting from Smackdown Live! Rollins wants a match right now and Paige says that she can do that bringing out another person drafted to Raw: Oney Lorcan! Commentary mention he had been appearing on 205 Live just before it was canceled and the match will start after the commercial break.

Ad break

Match 1: Seth Rollins vs Oney Lorcan

Seth Rollins wins in a good match. However, it should be noted that throughout the match Oney is even more aggressive than usual and looks desperate to win.

Winner via pinfall: Seth Rollins (12:20)

Post-match Oney Lorcan refuses a handshake storming off. We then cut to a Drake Maverick segment with Paige where he complains about not being Raw GM. She hires him to the Raw roster before she leaves. EC3 appears saying he will take care of his buddy before saying his match with Mike is next and tells him to come with him.

Ad break

Match 2: EC3 w/Drake Maverick vs Mike Kanellis w/Maria Kanellis

Commentary once again mentions that EC3 is now a Raw exclusive talent as are Mike and Maria Kanellis. EC3 wins in relatively easy fashion as Maria Kanellis is stopped by Drake Maverick from interfering.

Winner via pinfall: EC3 (4:48)

EC3 over-celebrates post-match acting very heelish whilst Drake mocks Maria and Mike Kanellis happy to have finally got one up on the pair who caused him a lot of trouble on 205 Live. After this, there is a promo package hyping up Samoa Joe joining Monday Night Raw!

Raw comes back with Jinder Mahal and the Singh Brothers in the ring waiting for their opponents who are revealed to be Brian Kendrick, Akira Tozawa and Rey Mysterio all joining Monday Night Raw.

The babyfaces pick up the win with a 619 followed a double team move from Kendrick and Tozawa on Samir Singh.

Winners via pinfall: Rey Mysterio, Brian Kendrick and Akira Tozawa (8:20)

Ad break

Becky Lynch comes out to the ring and talks about which dope will be next to fight her for the Raw Women's title. Naomi comes out making her first appearance on Raw. She is followed by Ember Moon, Mickie James, and Alexa Bliss who all want a shot at the Raw Women's title. Paige comes out and makes two matches for tonight's show with the winners facing off next week to decide who fights Becky at Money in the Bank. And later on, will be Mickie James vs Ember Moon and right now Naomi vs Alexa Bliss.

A good match with Mickie James using her veteran experience to win and overcome the more athletic Ember Moon.

Sin Cara interview where he talks about now being on Raw when Andrade Cien Almas and Zelina Vega walk into the scene mocking him before leaving. Tyler Breeze then cuts a promo talking about his time in NXT and his failures on Raw and Smackdown. He is now going to focus on finding himself and remembering who he is.

Match 6: Cruiserweight title match: Tony Nese (c) vs Drew Gulak
A great match with Tony Nese picking up the win overcoming the ground game of Tony Nese.

Winner via pinfall and still Cruiserweight Champion: Tony Nese (15:23)

Chad Gable cuts a promo backstage insulting Bobby Roode and saying he wants a piece of him for what he did. Noam Dar bumps into him by accident and looks at Gable annoyed calling him a dafty before walking off. Rusev and Nakamura then come out to the ring to team with the Revival. Hawkins and Ryder meanwhile make their way out with The Usos for an 8-man tag team match.

Match 7: Hawkins & Ryder and The Usos vs The Revival and Rusev & Shinsuke Nakamura

A video package plays showing Cesaro is coming to Raw. The main event is next with Seth Rollins sitting on commentary. The known competitors for the main event make their way out first. Mustafa Ali is the first mystery competitor getting a loud pop. We then see the Club come out confusing the crowd until they are joined by AJ Styles getting a very loud pop as well. Both members of the Club sit on commentary next to Seth Rollins and state now they are back on Raw with their boy. They also mention not trusting Lio Rush something Seth agrees with.

Main event: Number one contender's match for the Universal title: Bobby Lashley vs Baron Corbin vs Braun Strowman vs AJ Styles vs Mustafa Ali

Chaos is the word to describe this match. Lio Rush gets involved once too much so The Club comes down to the ringside area annoying Braun. Braun hits them as well distracting him and Mustafa Ali wipes out all of them after with a 054 to the outside. AJ meanwhile whilst this is happening hits the Phenomenal forearm on Corbin before Lashley throws him from the ring and steals the win.

Winner via pinfall: Bobby Lashley (14:21)

The show comes to a close with AJ having to stop The Club from fighting with Braun further. Mustafa Ali also tries to stop the fight whilst Baron Corbin sneaks off backstage. Bobby Lashley and Lio Rush meanwhile stare down the Universal champion as the show comes to a close.



Universal title match:
Seth Rollins (c) vs Bobby Lashley

Shane tells Bryan there are no automatic rematch clauses but since Bryan is his friend, he will get a rematch at Money in the Bank. Kevin Owens at this point walks in and confronts Bryan and Shane. Shane brings up what happened last week and makes a 2 on 1 handicap match against Bryan and Rowan later on in the show. Owens, however, tells Shane he will just destroy them both like he destroyed Shane's dad. We then cut to a Nikki Cross segment where she asks Lacey Evans to play with her and fight the Iiconics. Lacey looks at her with disgust and says no leaving Nikki disappointed.

Match 2: Money in the Bank qualifier: Ricochet vs Jinder Mahal

A decent match with Jinder using his power to try to stop Ricochet from using his high-flying offence but Ricochet uses his speed to overcomes this and puts away Jinder Mahal with Recoil (codebreaker) becoming the first man to enter the Money in the Bank ladder match.

Winner via pinfall: Ricochet (5:06)

After that, we cut to the ring as Gran Metalik and Lince Dorado are standing in the ring. Commentary mention Kalisto will be staying on Monday Night Raw whilst these two men are now part of the Smackdown Live roster.

Ad break
Apollo Crews cuts a promo explaining why he confronted Baron Corbin last week on Raw. Calls Corbin a bully and mentions him beating Kurt Angle. Baron Corbin then appears and mocks Crews challenging him to a match next week. Crews agrees but says Corbin does not have the power to make matches any more or did he forget? Corbin though makes a comment saying he knows Shane will be happy to make that match for him. He walks off leaving Crews really confused. We then cut to the ring after this as Kevin Owens makes his way out getting a good pop from the crowd but he looks serious ahead of what is going to be a 2 on 1 handicap match.

Ad break
We then get an Iiconics promo in which they tell the Divas of Doom they need to prove they can win as a team before they fight them. The Iiconics promise to give the pair an example next week. In the main event of the show, Shane McMahon comes out with Baron Corbin by his side. He talks about the new people he is adding to Smackdown Live who will take the brand to new heights including the man stood next to him. This would then bring out Elias and Drew McIntyre getting boos from the crowd. Shane says when you are the best in the world you surround yourself with the best talent and says that this is the new corporation!

The Miz then comes out with a steel chair and cuts a promo ripping into the heels in the ring. Shane challenges him to fight all 4 of them right now but Miz smirks saying he is waiting for someone else to come out. At that point, Reigns sneaks into the ring spearing Drew taking him out. Miz uses this distraction to slide into the ring and hits Baron Corbin with the chair before going for Elias. Shane tries to flee but Roman stops him laying into Shane McMahon before dropping him with the spear as well. Miz in the ring meanwhile hits Elias with the Skull crushing finale as The Miz and Roman Reigns stand tall to end the show.

Raw roster additions:

Humberto Carrillo and Ariya Davari will now be joining Monday Night Raw after the disbanding of 205 Live. Now the attention turns to Smackdown Live tonight as we see who will be joining the Smackdown live roster as part of the Superstar shakeup!

Killian Dian and Alexander Wolfe moved to NXT and NXT UK:

The superstar shake up is carrying on as Killian Dian and Alexander Wolfe have both left the main roster to return to NXT and NXT UK respectively. This decision was taken after the poor booking of Sanity. The company feel that the pair can be rebuilt away from the main roster on those respective shows. Eric Young meanwhile will be staying on Smackdown Live but it is unknown if there are any significant plans for him in the future with him potentially taking a more of a backstage role in the coming months.

Harper confirmed to be on Smackdown:

Whilst Harper did not appear on Smackdown Live this week, it has been announced he will be staying a part of the Smackdown Live roster. Expect a lot of the planned push that was going to be given to Lars Sullivan to be given to him instead in the coming months.

Five additions to the Smackdown Live roster:

In the last update related to the Smackdown Live roster, 5 names have been announced as part of the Smackdown roster as the Superstar shake up comes to a close. Dana Brooke and Alicia Fox have been announced as additions to the Women's roster. Meanwhile Fandango, No Way Jose and Gentleman Jack Gallagher have been announced as joining the male roster. Gentleman Jack Gallagher is an interesting edition with the end of 205 Live as it is rumored the new creative team may have something planned for Jack Gallagher in the coming months.
