WWE Raw Results: Highlights, Analysis, and Grades for April 10

A Couple of Mizfits

Raw kicked off in promising fashion this week. The Miz (and Maryse) spent the better part of 2016 as the best part of SmackDown Live. That run of spectacular television continued all the way through to WrestleMania. Having them showing up on Raw as part of the Superstar Shake-Up is a delight.

Dean Ambrose coming over to Raw, though, is a bit more of a mixed bag for me. Don’t get me wrong, I like Ambrose just fine. But it seems like WWE is so hell-bent on “shaking things up” that almost no one is going to stay put. Continuity is important, too, and hopefully enough superstars stay put to keep things somewhat the same.

Either way, seeing Miz and Ambrose get some kind of chance to blow off their abruptly ended feud from a few months ago is a good thing. I have no problem whatsoever imagining that Dean really thought that was John Cena in the ring. That may not be what a “lunatic” is, but it certainly fits the Ambrose character.

Backstage, later on, The Miz interrupts Sami Zayn from interrupting Kurt Angle. Sami wants to know how different Raw is going to be right before he leaves for SmackDown. Miz and Maryse want respect. Angle makes a match between the two because he’s the fastest learning GM in wrestling history.

Here’s to Miz continuing to be the best thing on TV, just a day earlier. And here’s to Kevin Owens probably leaving because the US Title and Intercontinental Title won’t be on the same show.

Side note: if Aron Rex/Damien Sandow is done with TNA, can we get him back to WWE so he can play The Miz playing John Cena?
