Monday Night Raw TV report for 04/08/2024

Arena: Wells Fargo Center
City: Philadelphia, PA

Paul “Triple H” Leveque is out first to open Raw after WrestleMania. He thanked the crowd for making this the greatest WrestleMania ever and then introduced the new WWE champion, the American Nightmare Cody Rhodes.

Triple H told him congratulations and he received a call from a couple guys that made a special video package for Cody last night. He wanted to share it with everyone so they brought out a couple of TVs since there was no large video screen set up.

Cody acknowledged Roman Reigns for his title run and said he may be the most important Superstar of our generation. After Cody finished, The Rock came out. Every time the Rock would put the microphone by his mouth, the crowd booed loudly.

The Rock says he came out to deliver flowers and congratulate Philadelphia for the largest gathering of trailer park trash. Rock said no disrespect, his mom had a big smile on her face, and she should have. And so did his daddy in heaven. Rock then said Dusty was his hero.

The Rock asked Cody if there was any way the Rock could hold his title. Cody said you could hold it for a moment if I could hold yours. Rock agreed. Rock said it feels right. Then they handed each other’s titles back. The Rock then thanked Cody and said it meant a lot, then said he must go away for a little while now.

The Rock said when he comes back, whether Cody is champion or not, he is coming back for Cody and Cody said he is looking forward to it. Rock reminded Cody then he beat Roman and ended that story but 24 hours earlier, The Rock pinned Cody, so their story is just beginning. Cody said he believes that and Cody said I am their champion (the fans) which means I am your champion too as his boss.

The Rock said you are my champion and I have something to give to you. The Rock took something out of his pocket and handed it to Cody and said you don’t even need to open your hand to know what this is…so never break my heart again.
