WWE Raw Results 4/1 - We Hear From Roman Reigns And The Rock, Judgment Day Vs. #DIY & New Day

Welcome to Rllegends's results for "WWE Raw" on April 1, 2024, coming to you live from the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York!

On the final "Raw" before WrestleMania 40, Undisputed WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns and The Rock will both be appearing on tonight's show. The two will be joining forces for the first time ever this coming Saturday to face Cody Rhodes and World Heavyweight Champion Seth "Freakin" Rollins, and will have implications for the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship match between "The Tribal Chief" and "The American Nightmare" on Sunday. The Bloodline will be banned from ringside if Rhodes and Rollins win, but Bloodline Rules will be employed if Reigns and The Rock emerge victorious.

Damian Priest and Finn Balor will be putting their Undisputed Tag Team Championship on the line in a Six Pack Challenge Ladder Match in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. However, before they do, they will be teaming up with their Judgment Day teammates Dominik Mysterio and JD McDonagh to take on two of the teams challenging them for their titles at WrestleMania, #DIY and New Day.

Candice LeRae defeated Ivy Nile in singles competition last week by pinning her whilst her feet were on the ropes. Two weeks prior to that, LeRae and her longtime tag team partner Indi Hartwell defeated Nile and Maxxine Dupri, but not before LeRae berated Dupri. Tonight, Nile and Dupri have their chance to seek retribution as they collide with LeRae and Hartwell in a rematch.

Before he challenges GUNTHER for the Intercontinental Championship at WrestleMania, Sami Zayn will be going head-to-head with Bronson Reed. The two met in the squared circle last Monday, with Reed ultimately coming out on top as the result of "The Ring General" pulling Zayn's focus from the match with his presence at ringside.

Additionally, the aforementioned Rhodes and Rollins, Becky Lynch, Jey Uso, and Women's World Champion Rhea Ripley are all advertised to be in town tonight per WWE's event page.

We are live! Michael Cole and Pat McAfee greet audiences at home before throwing it to a video of The Rock and Cody Rhodes' in-ring confrontation and production truck brawl last week.

The Rock then makes his way down to the ring.

We Hear From The Bloodline

The Rock says he made Cody Rhodes bleed. He says he took his hands and wrapped it around Rhodes' little head. He says he rammed it against the production truck, and wiped the blood on his hands on his Mama Rhodes weight belt. He says the only thing missing from the weight belt is Mama Rhodes' tears. The Rock says he's a man of his word, and says he told Rhodes at the beginning of last week's show that he would make him bleed. He says all the Cody Crybabys didn't like what he did to Rhodes, and he laughed at the Cody Crybabys for crying about their hero being beat up. He then throws it to a compilation of a couple of young fan's reaction to his production truck attack on Rhodes.

The Rock says seeing reactions like that breaks his heart like many fans who have young kids like him, but he's about to drop some gospel on them. He says there are moments in life where a man has to do what he has to, and says there are moments in life where people stick their noses in business where it doesn't belong. He says Rhodes did such, and he had to beat him down for it. He says Brooklyn is feeling the energy because professional wrestling is cool. He says the ratings have skyrocketed because of him, and says Brooklyn has set a record for the largest domestic gate in the history of "Raw" because finally blood was shed, WrestleMania is 5 days out, and he's come back to Brooklyn. The Rock then says he didn't come back to Brooklyn alone.

Roman Reigns' music hits, and he makes his way down to the ring with the rest of The Bloodline. Reigns tells Brooklyn to acknowledge him, then says those who saw his A&E bio already know what his hoodie says: family above all. He says that's how he's always operated, and he came to "Raw" to acknowledge his family. He thanks The Rock for giving him the easiest WrestleMania match of his life in his Night One tag team match against Rhodes and Seth "Freakin" Rollins, then says he and the rest of The Bloodline will have their way with Rhodes at Night Two of the PLE. He says if fans didn't see The Rock's attack on Rhodes last week, they've seen it on social media.

Reigns says he didn't need The Rock to beat up Rhodes, but he still did and put his family above all. He says The Rock showed how to lead, and says Rhodes is not fit for leadership. He says Rhodes is a politician, and while The Bloodline was making wrestling cool in 2020, Rhodes was off somewhere doing a whole lot of nothing. He says enough is enough, and The Bloodline can't have Rhodes trying to take them off the top of the mountain. He says the mountain belongs to The Bloodline, and says it won't be more crystal clear than it will be on Sunday.

Rollins' music hits and he makes his way down to ringside through the crowd. He says if The Bloodline wants to attack him, they'll have to fight the whole of Brooklyn. He says the time for talking is over, and he's ready to fight. He says he wants to fight tonight, then says with the biggest WrestleMania of all time, Brooklyn deserves the biggest main event of all time. He then challenges The Rock to a singles match, but says since he doesn't think The Rock is brave enough to do so, he'd be more than happy to face Reigns instead. He leaves it up to The Bloodline to choose who faces him in the main event, and tells them to pick what stipulation the match will be.

The Rock says challenging him and Reigns was a mistake, then questions if Rollins saw what happened to Rhodes last week. He says Rollins wants none of that, and tells him that he won't be fighting either of them. Solo Sikoa grabs a mic and informs Rollins that he'll be fighting him instead of Reigns or The Rock, and Rollins agrees to face him. The Rock then tells Rollins that the match will be Bloodline Rules.

We then head over to a video of Becky Lynch beating down Rhea Ripley on "The MMA Hour" earlier today.

Cathay Kelley then stands by with Lynch and asks her if she has any comments about her actions earlier today. Lynch says she'll be in the ring later tonight if Ripley cares to answer the call.
