The NXT Women’s Tag Team Championships are on the line in a Street Fight. Ember Moon and Shotzi Blackheart will defend against Candice LeRae and Indi Hartwell.
Also on tonight’s NXT a “Falls Count Anywhere” Match between Isaiah SWERVE Scott and Leon Ruff.
Plus, Tommaso Ciamp and Timothy Thatcher vs. the Grizzled Young Veterans...and the return of Finn Balor.
We’re getting a 3-Way match for the Raw Women’s Title at WrestleMania Backlash - Rhea Ripley defending against Asuka and Charlotte Flair.
WWE had announced it would simply be Ripley vs. Asuka - but during Raw, Charlotte pulled some strings...with Sonya Deville and was added to the match.
Charlotte submitted Dana Brooke. Mandy Rose took a few cheap shots at Charlotte after the match.
Some familiar faces are returning to Raw.
Mansoor was revealed as a new member of the roster last night. He was one of the hottests wrestlers in WWE - riding a 49-match winning streak that dates back to 2019.
BUT, Mansoor was put into a match last night, against Sheamus. It was interrupted by Humberto Carrillo...who attacked Sheamus. That's a disqualification WIN for Sheamus...and a LOSS for Mansoor. The streak...is over.
There was also a video on last night’s Raw hyping up the return of Eva Marie!
As promised, we got the return of the Raw Tag Team Champs AJ Styles and Omos last night...and they successfully defended their titles in a WrestleMania rematch against Kofi Kingston and Xavier Woods.
Lana and Naomi got a shot at the WWE Women’s Tag Team Titles - but Nia Jax and Shayna Baszler retained the gold. Baszler submitted Lana.
In last night’s main event, WWE Champ Bobby Lashley beat Braun Strowman in a non-title match. Strowman was distracted by Drew McIntyre, who was hanging around ringside. After the match, McIntyre laid out both guys.
We’re getting Lashley vs. McIntyre in another non-title match on next Monday’s Raw.
Lucha House Party beat Cedric Alexander and Shelton Benjamin. Alexander berated Benjamin after the match...and said their tag team is “done”.
Angel Garza pinned Drew Gulak with the Wing Clipper. After the match, Garza shoved a rose down the back of Gulak’s trunks and kicked him in the rear.
Team R-K-Bro beat Elias and Jaxson Ryker...and Damien Priest beat John Morrison.
(STINGER: New Japan)
It’s Day 2 of New Japan’s Wrestling Dontaku. This morning’s main event is Will Ospreay defending the IWGP World Heavyweight Championship against Shingo Takagi.
On Monday’s Wrestling Dontaku show...Jay White won the NEVER Openweight Champion. He dethroned Hiroshi Tanahashi in the main event.
White is the first man to hold the IWGP Heavyweight, Intercontinental, United States and NEVER Title.

White also challenged David Finlay, who beat White in the New Japan Cup.
Also on Monday’s show...Taichi defeated Tama Tonga in a Ladder Match - securing the Iron Fingers Of Doom that were hung above the ring.
Zack Sabre Jr. beat Tanga Loa. That means Sabre and Taichi will get another shot at the IWGP Heavyweight Tag Titles held by the Guerillas of Destiny.
A title change on Ring Of Honor’s weekend TV. Tony Deppen is the new ROH TV Champion. He used a clever pinning combination to take the gold from HOT SAUCE Tracy Williams.
Also on the show, Flamita snuck in a low blow to pin his former tag partner Bandido.
Matt Taven and Mike Bennett beat the Beer City Bruiser and Ken Dixon. After the match, Taven hit Bruiser with a beer bottle. Bennett did not seem to be on board with that.
