*OFFICIAL* Raw Discussion Thread: 3rd April 2017

Don’t say he didn’t warn you: Roman Reigns promised for weeks that he would defeat The Undertaker and assume command of The Phenom’s “yard.” And that’s exactly what he did, handing The Deadman only his second loss in over 25 years of WrestleMania matches. That puts The Big Dog in a position only one other Superstar – the current reigning Universal Champion – has found himself in. But what will the former WWE Champion set his eye on now that he has accomplished the unthinkable?

Say farewell to “Seth Rollins, pawn.” And say hello to “Seth Freakin’ Rollins, free man.” The Architect managed to knock off Triple H in a Non-Sanctioned Match to reclaim his independence, fulfilling his promise to become the person he was before The Game first offered to make him “The Man” in 2014. With Rollins’ destiny now firmly in his own hands, how will the two-time WWE Champion begin his own personal new era?

Delightful! Exquisite! Wonderful! The return of Matt & Jeff Hardy at WrestleMania was all that and much more, especially when they ended the reign of Luke Gallows & Karl Anderson to become the new Raw Tag Team Champions. Now, after procuring Team Red's tandem titles, the Hardys come home to WWE’s flagship show, where they join a division that features no shortage of top-shelf tandem competition. The only question is, who among these teams will dare challenge them?

The Reign of Jericho is no more, and Kevin Owens is now United States Champion. Drink it in, maaannn. KO completely savaged his former best friend in WrestleMania’s battle for the star-spangled title, ultimately dethroning Chris Jericho to fulfill the promise he made following WWE Fastlane. So now The Prizefighter has his prize, and Jericho is certainly welcome to try to take it back. However, he clearly does so at his own risk.

Brock Lesnar is champion once again, having dispatched Goldberg to win his first Universal Title and the first title of any nature for The Beast Incarnate in two years. Now, The Conqueror finds himself once again at the top of the mountain and with a target on his back, which is just the way he and Paul Heyman like it. It will take a Superstar of epic proportions to mount a challenge over The Anomaly. Will such an individual present himself on Raw? Tune into Raw, tonight, to find out!

A very vocal crowd, not only to kick off Raw but throughout the night. Roman Reigns may have been very brief, but those four words did exactly what they needed to.

Plenty of "DELETE!" chants at various times throughout the night, inclusing hte Raw Tag Team Championship rematch of course that was between the Hardy Boyz and Gallows and Anderson, but which saw the Hardys retain.

Great to see newly-inducted WWE Hall of Famer Kurt Angle announced as the new General Manager of Raw. Vince McMahon's announcement of things being "shaken up" next week strongly suggest a WWE Draft, so it should be interesting to see whether it is a picked draft or a "lottery".

NXT is clearly playing its own part in shaking things up even before then however, with the début of "The Revival" Scott Dawson and Dash Wilder.

Emma actually returns properly to in-ring action, but even more of a surprise is the return from injury of Finn Bálor, to great acclaim from the crowd.
