WWE RAW 4/22/19 Preview – A New Era Begins

Tonight, the superstars of Monday Night RAW usher in a new era on the red brand LIVE from Wells Fargo Arena in Des Moines, IA.

Last week, WWE was shaken up as some RAW superstars were sent to Smackdown while Smackdown superstars got sent to RAW. Now that the Shake-Up is over, a new era officially begins tonight on RAW.

RAW said goodbye to Roman Reigns, Intercontinental Champion Finn Balor, Bayley, Ember Moon, Elias, Liv Morgan, Lars Sullivan, Kairi Sane, Buddy Murphy, Chad Gable, Apollo Crews, Mickie James, and Heavy Machinery.

RAW ushers in the new era tonight with RAW’s newest superstars AJ Styles, The Miz, The Usos, Aleister Black, Ricochet, The Viking Experience (formerly War Raiders), Andrade (with Zelina Vega), Rey Mysterio, Lacey Evans, Cedric Alexander, Naomi, EC3, and Eric Young. Rumored, but not officially confirmed yet, is United States Champion Samoa Joe.

Which new superstar will make an impact tonight?

Last night, Universal Champion Seth Rollins teamed with his Shield brothers Dean Ambrose and Roman Reigns for the last time. With Ambrose leaving WWE and Roman moved to Smackdown, what will await The Beast Slayer now that he is all alone? Which superstar will emerge as Rollins’ first challenger?

For weeks, a strange vignette featuring a buzzard and a doll in a rocking chair have been airing on RAW and Smackdown. Will we find out the meaning of these vignettes tonight?

Last week, Lacey Evans defeated Natalya in her WWE debut to earn a shot at Becky Lynch’s RAW Women’s Championship. What will The Lady have to say to The Man tonight?

WWE has yet to announce any matches for tonight’s RAW.

RAW airs at 7pm CT on USA Network.
