Monday Night Raw Quick Recap for December 20, 2021

Matches Tonight: Seven
  • Singles Match: Bianca Belair vs Doudrop--The Final Chapter. Billed as the "final chapter" in the rivalry between these two, Doudrop dominated until the very end when Belair put away the 'Drop with a massive KOD to a huge pop. 8:23-8:35pm EST.
  • Singles Match: Austin Theory vs Finn Bálor. Bálor picked up the win after Theory dominated the entirety of the match. 8:43-8:53pm EST.
  • Tag Match: The Mysterios vs AJ Styles & Omos. Super short match that saw Rey roll-up Styles, who was distracted by Omos (who refused to tag in). This led to Styles and Omos exchanging words and fists as their partnership has come to an end. 9:16-9:17pm EST.
  • Singles Match: Randy Orton vs Chad Gable w/ Otis. Short match that saw Orton win. Afterwards, Otis attempted to attack Orton and shoved Orton off three times (thus, blocking three consecutive RKO attempts) before Orton fled up the ramp. 9:28-9:31pm EST.
  • Contender's Match: United States Champion Damian Priest vs Dolph Ziggler w/ Robert Roode. Ziggler won by count-out after Roode distracted Priest, leading to the ten count victory. 9:43-9:52pm EST.
  • Singles Match:: Queen Zelina vs Rhea Ripley. Both Nikki A.S.H. and Carmella were banned from ringside prior to the match. Yet another short, unimpressive match. Ripley picked up the win quickly. 10:15-10:18pm EST.
  • Tag Team Main Event Match: WWE Champion Big E & Lashley w/ MVP vs Kevin Owens & Seth Rollins. Big E and Lashley won the semi-short match, picking up the win relatively quickly after the main event match's commercial break. Afterwards, Rollins & Owens embraced and beat down Big E and Lashley. 10:44-10:57pm EST.
Miscellaneous Non-Match Segments of Note:
  • All Mighty Address: Bobby Lashley addressed the steps taken last week in defeating Owens, Rollins and Big E to be added to next week's Fatal 4-Way WWE Championship match. Lashley and Big E ended up uniting to fight off a KO/Rollins ambush. 8:06-8:14pm EST.
  • MizTV: AJ Styles & Omos were guests on tonight's episode. The Miz spent the segment exchanging verbal barbs with Styles and planting seeds of dissension between the former tag champs. 9:02-9:11pm EST.
  • No Longer Friends: AJ Styles and Omos are no longer a tag after tonight's dissolution of their friendship.
  • The Cutting Edge: Tonight's special guest was Maryse. As completely expected, Maryse attempted to poor-mouth to Edge in an effort to distract him for an ambush by the Miz. The segment ended with the Miz hitting a Skull-Crushing Finale on Edge, followed by the return of marital bliss to the Miz and Mrs. 10:03-10:07pm EST.
  • Ya Only Live Thrice: Liv Morgan came out to address her recent animosity and feud with Becky Lynch that saw Lynch cheat to defeat Morgan last week. Back and forth between Morgan and Lynch, verbally, leading to their Day 1 title shot in less than two weeks. Pointless segment, really. 10:26-10:34pm EST.
  • Day 1 Matches, Raw Next Week: Liv Morgan will challenge Becky Lynch at Day 1 for the Raw Women's title.
