4/14 WWE Raw Pre-Show notes: Live coverage of the live WWE Network broadcast
2014-04-14 18:30:10


By Jason Powell

The following is live notes of the WWE Raw pre-show that is being broadcast on the WWE Network. Refresh the page for the latest updates if you are reading this prior to Raw.

-Josh Mathews opened the show and addressed the death of Ultimate Warrior. The panel included Booker T, Sgt. Slaughter, and Alex Riley. Mathews noted that Warrior was outspoken. Booker said Warrior may have been too outspoken, but he said that's what made him the Ultimate Warrior. Slaughter said he's happy he went up to Warrior and had a talk with him during WrestleMania weekend. Mathews said the legacy of Warrior will live forever.

-The panel discussed Triple H seeking retribution from The Shield for their actions last week.

-Big E vs. Titus O'Neil was the first Superstars match. Footage of Big E winning with The Big Ending aired.

Powell's POV: Don't blame us for the spoilers when WWE shows them. They should just put up a flashing graphic that says "There's no reason to watch WWE Superstars."

-The broadcast team spoke briefly about the eight-man tournament to determine the No. 1 contender to the Intercontinental Title. Riley noted that Christian became No. 1 contender, but he is still out with an injury.

-Legends House debuts on WWE Network on Thursday night at 7:00 p.m. CT.

-Video footage aired of the John Cena and Bray Wyatt segment from Smackdown, then the panel discussed their ongoing feud.

-Renee Young interviewed Paige about going into her first match as Divas Champion. She said she's gone through this before as NXT Champion, though she said it wasn't as big. She said that whoever is willing to step up to the plate should bring it on.

-The panel discussed Paige. Booker compared her to Miley Cyrus on the wrecking ball. Slaughter said it brought back memories of 1-2-3 Kid beating Razor Ramon.

-The first-round tournament brackets are Mark Henry vs. Cesaro, Rob Van Dam vs. Alberto Del Rio, Sheamus vs. Jack Swagger, and Dolph Ziggler vs. Bad News Barrett.

Powell's POV: I assume this is a platform for Cesaro, though they could have Swagger take the tournament and the title and then have Cesaro chase him. The IC Title feels beneath Sheamus unless the idea is to rebuild the title through him. I see Bad News Barrett as a nice dark horse pick.

-Renee Young interviewed Big E backstage. He was a little quirky to start, but he put over the tournament and the participants. The show wrapped up shortly thereafter.
