4/15 WWE Monday Night Raw Results – Several Upset Victories, Henry Attacks Sheamus & CM Punk Walks Out Again

Mike Killam

3MB is in the ring as we come back from a break, and Heath Slater calls The Shield a "three man cover band". Drew McIntyre demands they come out and offer them a hand-written apology. Brock Lesnar's music, and the "next big thing" makes his way out to the ring. He dispatches Drew McIntyre with a belly-to-belly suplex, and hits the F5 on Jinder Mahal. Heath Slater tries to escape, but Lesnar bails from the ring and spears him into the ground. An F5 off the barricade absolutely destroys SLater, but he's not done yet. Paul Heyman runs down and begs Lesnar to stop, but he hits another F5 sending Slater bouncing off the barricade. 

The two get into the ring, and Paul Heyman says that his client is ready for a fight. And the fight he wants is right here tonight, with Triple H. Heyman says that Triple H did something at WrestleMania that no man has ever done before – he knocked out Brock Lesnar. He says that he respects The Game as a warrior, and would shake his hand for a job well done. But Lesnar doesn't feel the same way, and the way he sees it they are 1-1 in their fued. Heyman talks about Extreme Rules coming up on pay-per-view, and decides it's time things get "barbaric" and "raw" between the two. They issue a challenge for Lesnar/Triple H III at Extreme Rules, inside a steel cage. 

United States Championship Match
Kofi Kingston vs. Antonio Cesaro (c) 

Cesaro comes down to the ring yodeling, and Kingston rolls him up for a near-fall. After a backslide pin and a kickout by the champ, Cesaro levels Kofi with a huge clothesline out of the corner. Gut-wrench Fallaway Slam connects, into a side headlock. Kingston rolls out of it and lands several dropkicks, before motioning for the Boom Drop. He lands it and gets ready for Trouble in Paradise, but Cesaro throws him into the air and connects with a devestating uppercut. 

After a commercial break, Kofi tries for the S.O.S. but Cesaro counters and follows up with a headbutt. Out of the corner Kingston dodges a splash and hits the S.O.S. for a very close two-count. Trouble in Paradise connects out of nowhere, but the champion rolls to the outside! Kingston brings Cesaro back in the ring; 1…2…no! The challenger heads up to the top turnbuckle and tries for a crossbody, but the champ catches him and turns it into a tilt-the-whirl backbreaker. He tries for the Neatralizer, but Kofi rolls into a pin! 1…2…Cesaro kicks out. They trade pin attempts back and forth, until Kingston hits the Trouble in Paradise for the second time. 1…2…3! 

Winner and NEW CHAMPION, Kofi Kingston
