Monday Night Raw Quick Recap for August 29, 2022
Matches Tonight: Six (approx. 62 minutes)
- Tag Team Match: The Judgment Day vs AJ Styles & Dolph Ziggler. Priest picked up the win after a decent match. 8:08-8:17pm EST.
- Six-Woman Tag Match: Raw Women’s Champion Bianca Belair, Asuka & Alexa Bliss vs Katie Arch & Local Talent. Katie Arch, Ark, Arq–whatever–was the only one named. The three local talent had one purpose and they served it well–to take finishers and signatures from the faces as they “sent a message” to this weekend’s opponents. Short win for the trio. 8:38-8:41pm EST.
- Tag Team Match: the Street Profits vs the Alpha Academy. The Profits picked up the win and shared some milk with Kurt Angle, post-match. 9:02-9:18pm EST.
- United States Championship Match: the Miz w/ Ciampa vs United States Champion Bobby Lashley. Despite Ciampa’s best efforts to make it a two-on-one match, unofficially, the champ retained with the Hurt Lock–after a little distraction from “former NXT employee Dexter Lumis.” 9:39-9:49pm EST.
- Singles Match: Kevin Owens vs Jey Uso. Another lengthy, solid match that saw Owens win. Sami Zayn had the opportunity–and was ordered–to hit KO with a steel chair when the ref was distracted, but hesitated, risking the ire of the Bloodline. 10:14-10:26pm EST.
- WWE Women’s Tag Team Championship Main Event Match: Dakota Kai & Iyo Sky vs Raquel Rodriguez & Aliyah. Kai & Sky dominated but it was Raquel Rodriguez & Aliyah who picked up the win. Raquel Rodriguez is now the first woman to have held NXT Women’s Tag and WWE Women’s Tag team gold. 10:46-10:56pm EST.
Miscellaneous Non-Match Segments of Note:
- Edge Addresses the Judgment Day: Edge was called out, confronted the trio, and with some help from the Mysterios, was able to put a lickin’ on the Judgment Day, briefly. 8:22-8:29pm EST.
- Everybody Kurts…: Kurt hyped this weekend’s premium live event and was quickly interrupted by the Alpha Academy.
- Rollins/Riddle: “Split-screen” interview that culminated with Riddle calling Rollins a little bitch and telling him the only man in his marriage was his wife, Becky Lynch. 9:26-9:29pm EST.
- Blood, and Raw, Runs Red…: The Bloodline demanded acknowledgement for Roman, who celebrates two years as our Universal Champ this week. Kevin Owens confronted them, setting up a match immediately afterwards–and planting the seeds for potential Owens/Zayn things in our future. 10:01-10:08pm EST.
