WWE Raw 4/27/20 – Drew & Seth Build Continues

Samoa Joe replaces King on commentary and the VIP Lounge starts the show off. Rey, Aleister Black, and Apollo Crews are out with awkward dialogue before Zelina and her group are out for even more awkward dialogue because WWE Comedy is written for a crowd to react to and there’s no crowd and they aren’t adjusting for the crowd-free climate. This leads to a six man tag match with Apollo getting the win over Andrade with an atomic powerbomb to set up a future US Title match down the line. Backstage, Andrade is pissed and Apollo says he can beat him again tonight. Apollo smacks the living crap out of him and Zelina gives him a title match tonight.

Asuka and Nia Jax get ready for a match with Shayna and they all brawl around ringside with ladders. Lashley asks Lana to not be out with him because she’s a distraction – because she’s too beautiful. Lashley demolishes a jobber. Liv Morgan and Ruby Riott duke it out and Liv hits Oblivion to win. Byron congratulates her and she’s thankful. HHH Appreciation clips air. Jinder returns with shorter hair and squashes Akira Tozawa with the khallas.

Apollo gets his shot against Andrade, but his knee gets taken out. He gets the Olympic Slam, but can’t follow up on it quickly. Corner stinger splash and a belly to belly. He goes up for a splash, but lands on his knee and the ref stops it due to injury. Street Profits accept a challenge from the Viking Raiders for next week’s show. Becky’s double belt win at Mania isshown.

Everise faces Ricochet and Cedric Alexander, who make quick work of them in a showcase match with a Ricochet superkick setting up the lumbar check for the win. MVP hypes up Vink and Shane Thorne as his new team. More HHH clips set up some Seth-Drew clips and a contract signing with Drew saying he’s full of shit and then hitting a headbutt and setting up a claymore, but Murphy comes out and beats him down before Seth has Murphy eat the claymore instead.
