WWE Monday Night RAW Live Results: What is Stephanie McMahon's Announcement?

It's the last Monday Night RAW before WrestleMania 35 and the WWE Universe is ready to see what the go-home show will do to hype up Sunday's festivities.

The top story going into this week's Monday Night RAW is an announcement from Stephanie McMahon regarding the first-ever WrestleMania main event featuring women. What Stephanie will say is anyone's guess, but with how many highs and lows the feud between Charlotte Flair, Becky Lynch and Ronda Rousey has gone through anything is possible.

Speaking of Lynch, Charlotte and Ronda, the three women vying for the RAW Women's Championship will team up tonight against the Riott Squad. It's classic "can they work together?" storytelling before the three women go at it on Sunday but it'll surely make for an interesting wrinkle.

The RAW Tag Team Championships are on the line tonight as the Revival take on the challengers, Ricochet and Aleister Black. Black and Ricochet pinns The Revival on two separate occasions and are ready to take the tag straps and walk into WrestleMania as the new "Top Guys."

In more Tag Team action, the Women's Tag Champs Sasha Banks and Bayley will team with Natalya and Beth Phoenix to take on Tamina and Nia Jax, and The IIconics. With all four teams looking to leave WrestleMania as the Tag Champs, will any of the women be able to work together and gain some momentum heading into the weekend.

There's a lot expected to go down on this week's episode of Monday Night RAW and here's a rundown of everything that happened on the April 1 episode of Monday Night RAW.
