WWE RAW after WrestleMania results: WWE Championship defended, NXT superstar called up

McIntyre defended his WWE title

The RAW after WrestleMania is traditionally WWE's most unpredictable show of the year. 

We're usually treated to surprise returns or NXT call-ups as the entire roster aims to make their mark in the aftermath of wrestling's biggest event.

This year's WrestleMania was very different, taking place over two nights at an empty Performance Center.

But despite the complications, it was very well received by fans and there was plenty of hype for Monday's episode of RAW. 

So, check out the full results below - which include an NXT call-up, the return of Nia Jax and an impromptu title defence! 

Match 1: Asuka def. Liv Morgan 

Match 2: The Street Profits and Bianca Belair def. Angel Garza, Austin Theory and Zelina Vega (Belair has officially been called up from the NXT roster) 

Match 3: Aleister Black def. Apollo Crews (Crews is now a member of the RAW roster, moving from SmackDown) 

Black and Crews stole the show

Match 4: Ricochet and Cedric Alexander def. Oney Lorcan and Danny Burch  

Match 5: Seth Rollins def. Denzel Dejournette (squash match)

Match 6: Nia Jax def. Deonna Purrazzo (Jax returns after being sidelined for one year with injury) 

Nia Jax returned

Match 7: Humberto Carrillo def. Brendan Vink

Match 8: Drew McIntyre def. The Big Show to retain the WWE Championship

You're probably looking at the last match and thinking 'what on earth happened?'

McIntyre defended his WWE title

Well, RAW's closing segment was 'shocking footage' from the aftermath of WrestleMania 36, where Big Show goaded McIntyre into an impromptu title match. 

For parts, it looked like the Scottish Psychopath would drop the title 20 minutes after winning it, but he hit Big Show with a Claymore Kick to secure the pin. 

The real main event of WrestleMania

It was an utterly bizarre ending to RAW and really did prove why it's the most unpredictable event of the year.
