Monday Night Raw Quick Recap for March 21, 2022
- Tag Team Match: the Mysterios vs the Dirty Dawgs w/ the Miz. Decent match that saw the Mysterios win after Seth Rollins distracted everyone. Post-match, the Miz hit a Skull-Crushing Finale on Rey and ripped off his mask. Rey covered his face with a towel and the Miz left, stealing Rey’s mask. 8:20-8:29pm EST.
- Two-on-One Handicapped Match: Omos vs Apollo Crews & Cmdr. Azeez. Omos is still on an undefeated streak per Jimmy Smith. Omos weathered a short pre-match ambush to squash the duo in the ring. Omos easily lifted the massive Commander Azeez with one arm and threw him Lawn Dart style with one arm. Very impressive. Post match, Omos demanded if anyone have the balls to step up to him, they’ll all be dominated. 8:48-8:52pm EST.
- Tag Team Match: Liv Brutally vs Natalya & Shayna Baszler. Liv Morgan + “My Brutality” Rhea Ripley = Liv Brutally. Yes, sometimes I have to point these things out or people get butthurt. Baszler & Natalya won. Post match, Carmella and Zelina both attacked the other two teams and, essentially, kissed and made up. 9:18-9:21pm EST.
- Non-Title Singles Match: United States Champion Finn Bálor vs Austin Theory. Pat McAfee was the special guest commentator for this match and did great with Corey Graves. Pat repeatedly trolled Theory, ultimately costing him the match. Great segment, had its funny moments. 9:45-8:53pm EST.
- Non-Title Tag Team Match: Raw Tag Team Champions RK-Bro vs the Alpha Academy. RK-Bro won, but the Street Profits finished their heel turn by attacking both the Academy then double-teaming a vulnerable Riddle. 10:04-10:12pm EST.
- Intergender Mixed Tornado Tag Match: 24/7 Champion Dana Brooke & Reggie vs Akira Tozawa & Tamina. Very short match that saw Reggie pick up the pin on Tozawa after Tamina accidentally headbutted Tozawa’s junk. Waste of ninety seconds of my life I can never get back. 10:22-10:24pm EST.
- Spot at WrestleMania Singles Main Event Match: AJ Styles(d) vs Seth Rollins. If Styles fails to defeat Rollins, Rollins will fill in for Styles against Edge and it was noted that this is Seth Rollins last chance at getting to WrestleMania (outside attending his wife’s match in the audience). Very solid match, premium live event quality, that saw Styles win via DQ after Edge attacked with a chair. Edge will face Styles at WrestleMania as planned. After the match, Rollins destroyed the commentary table, went batshit, and said Raw would not go on next week unless he gets what he wants. 10:35-10:58pm EST.
Miscellaneous Non-Match Segments of Note:
- KO 3:16: Kevin Owens trolled the crowd, opening us with Stone Cold’s theme and entering dressed up as Austin, complete with bald cap. Owens stayed in character as he mocked Austin. He then attempted to catch beers, failed, and hit a Stunner on the ringside assistant who was chucking him cans. 8:00-8:10pm EST.
- A Phenomenal Return: Styles and Rollins exchanged words as Rollins attempted to steal Styles’ spot at WrestleMania. It was decided they would fight later, with the winner facing Edge at WrestleMania. 9:00-9:09pm EST.
- Raw Women’s Champion Becky Lynch Speaks (Hoarsely): Just a typical interview promisign to destroy Bianca at WrestleMania. 9:31-9:39pm EST.
- Splitting up…or Not: WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions Queen Zelina and Carmella escalated their recent war of words, getting physical backstage. Refs and officials had to separate the champs. Later in the night, the two made amends during the women’s tag match.
- Next Week on Raw: Our WrestleMania go-home edition of Raw will feature Logan Paul (with Rey Mysterio’s stolen mask). 8-Woman tag match (Banks, Naomi, Ripley & Morgan vs Zelina, Carmella, Nattie, & Baszler). Rey Mysterio w/ Dom vs the Miz w/ Logan Paul.
- On SmackDown: WWE Heavyweight Champion Brock Lesnar is expected to appear.
