    The night’s opening match saw RK-Bro’s Randy Orton and Riddle successfully retain their Raw Tag Team Championship in a Triple Threat Match over The Street Profits and Alpha Academy.

    A high-energy three-way match that featured one member from each team in the ring at the same time, it was the perfect option to kick off the show.

    The crowd was into it, the competitors were amped up and the Orton hot tag sparked a phenomenal finishing sequence that concluded with The Viper catching Chad Gable with an RKO mid-flight for the win.

    The Profits showed respect to the victors post-match, suggesting the teased heel turn we saw the last few weeks will not move forward. Given the lack of depth in the tag division, it is likely to be the best that Montez Ford and Angelo Dawkins stay fan favorites.

    This was a fantastic way to kick off the show and set the bar for the rest of the broadcast.

  • Triple H kicked off the show, making his way to the ring and leaving behind his boots, the symbolic sign that his in-ring career has come to an end.
  • Ford’s over-the-corner tope wiped out his opponents. Gable’s moonsault moments later did the same.
  • The Randy Orton hot tag is one of the best things in wrestling today. he was fired up in this one.
  • Gable and Ford running back the monkey flip spot later, with the latter landing on his feet this time, was a nice touch.
  • Chad Gable interrupted the post-match WrestleMania toast between RK-Bro, the Street Profits and Olympic gold medalist Gable Stevenson. The two-time NCAA champion suplexed the heel.

    The unstoppable force met the immovable object in the night’s second match as Bobby Lashley looked to halt Omos’ momentum.

    He succeeded, delivering a massive verticle suplex to the former tag team champion and following with two spears for the pinfall victory.

    The match was mercifully short and Omos was not asked to do too much. Of course, what he was asked to do, he managed to mess up by sending The All-Mighty’s head into the turnbuckle. Still, Lashley went over to end the big man’s dominance in what was absolutely the right call. One man is a former world champion, the other is probably not ready to go it alone as a singles star.
