WWE RAW Live Results: Superstar Shakeup Brings Change to Roster

Before the WWE holds the Greatest Royal Rumble event later this month, the company will shake up the roster for the coming year.

The Superstar Shakeup swaps WWE stars from RAW and SmackDown Live starting on the April 16 edition of Monday Night RAW. While the Shakeup will serve as the focal point of the show, there are still storyline threads to watch throughout the night.

The first storyline revolves around the RAW Tag Team Championships as The Bar’s challenger at Greatest Royal Rumble will be decided. Will Matt Hardy and Bray Wyatt’s unlikely alliance win over The Revival?

Bayley and Sasha Banks’ friendship has been on the rocks for weeks now and the two will square off one-on-one tonight. With the Superstar Shakeup looming, this may be the last time these two have a chance to reconcile.

There’s plenty in store for the April 16 edition of Monday Night RAW including more Ronda Rousey, Bobby Lashley and more. Here are the live results for this week’s episode.

Note: The results are still being compiled. We’ll update as matches conclude.
