WWE Monday Night Raw – Live Ongoing Spoilers – 04/18/2016

-Dean Ambrose opened the show and ran through a number of topics: joking about Braun Strowman, singling out James Corden’s parents in the front row, and introducing Shane McMahon to the live audience. Shane, who is running Raw for a third straight week, says the fans deserve better than they’ve gotten from the Authority. This prompted Kevin Owens to come out and tell Shane that his era isn’t going to be any different from the old one. He feels Shane has been punishing him for noting that Sami Zayn doesn’t belong in the world title hunt. Sami Zayn joined the segment and stated he was signed by WWE before Owens, which means if it wasn’t for him, Owens would never have made it to WWE. Lastly, Chris Jericho came out to complain about having the Highlight Reel segment taken away from him. This eventually led to our opening match, as Shane announced that Jericho would talk on Zayn.

-Chris Jericho defeated Sami Zayn with the Codebreaker.

-Backstage, AJ Styles hugged Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson. The former New Japan Pro Wrestling stars acknowledged their shared past.

-Enzo Amore & Big Cass defeated The Dudleys with the Rocket Launcher to advance in the tag team championship No. 1 contenders tournament.

-The Miz hosted Miz TV with Maryse. He made fun of little Prince George, comparing him unfavorably to his “pristine” Intercontinental title belt. Cesaro interrupted and declare The Miz a royal pain in the ass. This led to a back-and-forth in which Miz and Cesaro quoted movie lines at each other, with Miz quoting Taken and Cesaro quoting They Live. Somehow, this led to an eight-man tag team match.’
