Monday Night Raw Quick Recap for July 11, 2022

Matches Tonight: Six (approx. 63 minutes)
  • Single Match: Rey Mysterio w/ Dominik vs Finn Bálor w/ Damian Priest. First time Rey's fought Finn per Jimmy Smith. Decent match that saw Priest pick up the clean win. Afterwards, he and Finn again attempted to recruit Dom Mysterio without luck...yet. 8:34-8:43pm EST.
  • Raw Women's Championship Match: Bianca Belair(c) vs Carmella. Becky Lynch joined commentary for this match. Carmella won by count-out, thanks to some help from Lynch. Belair retained. 8:54-9:07pm EST.
  • Tag Match: AJ Styles & Ezekiel vs the Miz & Tommaso Ciampa. Styles won by DQ when Ciampa refused to disengage as the illegal man despite the ref's warnings. 9:26-9:37pm EST.
  • Tag Match: Alexa Bliss & Asuka vs Doudrop & Nikki A.S.H. Bliss picked up the win for her team. 9:46-9:52pm EST.
  • Six-Man Tag Match: The Usos & Omos w/ MVP vs R-Truth & the Street Profits. Omos was a monster throughout the match and picked up the win for his team. 10:16-10:27m EST.
  • Tag Main Event Match: United States Champion Bobby Lashley & Riddle vs Theory & Seth Rollins. Former NXT Champion Dolph Ziggler made his return during the match. Theory attempted to cheat with a dirty pin, but Ziggler knocked his feet off the rope and set up a win for Riddle & Lashley! Afterwards, Ziggler dropped Theory with a superkick, turning face it seems. 10:46-10:59pm EST.
Miscellaneous Non-Match Segments of Note:
  • Brock Lesnar Speaks: (For those wondering, the first 4 minutes were useless recaps and Brock's entrance). Lesnar cut a funny promo of sorts, confronted Paul Heyman and Theory, then withstood an ambush by the Alpha Academy. He proceeded to destroy them with steel steps, steel chairs, and hit an F5 on Otis through the commentary table. Great way to open tonight's program. 8:04-8:18pm EST.
  • Pre-Match Smack Talk, Rey/Finn: Prior to their match, Priest & Finn cut a promo in-ring with the Mysterios. They both insulted Rey as a bad father and wrestler, while also attempting to recruit Dom into their fold. 8:23-8:30pm EST.
  • Big-Time Whines: Prior to the Raw Women's Championship title match, Becky Lynch made a short promo in the ring. She complained about not getting an automatic rematch after WrestleMania, and having to earn her way back up. She states she doesn't care who wins the title match tonight as she calls dibs on the winner. 8:51-8:53pm EST.
  • Miz TV: Featuring Tommaso Ciampa, first the Miz attempted to warn-away Logan Paul before the two Superstars cut promos against AJ Styles until the Phenomenal One showed up. Conflict ensued but Ezekiel, Elias' younger brother, made his way out to back up Styles and set up "zeked-up" tag team match. 9:15-9:23pm EST.
  • Returning Superstar: Dolph Ziggler returned in our main event, dressed to the nines in a nice suit, and turned face!.
  • Next Week on Raw1: Logan Paul returns to respond to the Miz's warnings.
