Monday Night Raw Quick Recap for May 30, 2022

Matches Tonight: Seven (approx. 51 minutes)
  • Singles Match: Raw Women's Champion Bianca Belair vs Asuka. Solid back-and-forth match between the two that saw Asuka possibly injured (left knee, legitimate) in a loss to the Champ. After the match, Lynch attacked both women. 8:15-8:28pm EST.
  • Six-Man Tag Match: the Mysterios & Ezekiel vs the Alpha Academy & Kevin Owens. Another solid match that saw Zeke & the Mystery Fam pick up the win. 8:37-8:45pm EST.
  • Singles Match: Alexa Bliss vs Doudrop w/ Nikki A.S.H. The crowd was dead for Doudrop. Bliss picked up the win. 9:15-9:18pm EST.
  • United States Championship Contender's Match: Mustafa Ali vs Ciampa w/ Theory. Tommaso is now just Ciampa. Ciampa dominated the match; Theory interfered as Ali attempted to rally, giving Ali the win and the number one contendership. After the match, Theory attacked Ali viciously--and announced the title shot for the future should be done tonight. 9:40-9:43pm EST.
  • United States Championship Match: Theory(c) w/ Ciampa vs Mustafa Ali. Quick squash that saw Theory retain. Post-match, however, VKM set up a rematch this Sunday at Hell in a Cell. 9:49-9:51pm EST.
  • Championship Contender's Match: Riddle & Shinsuke Nakamura vs Undisputed Tag Team Champions the Usos. Nakamura & Riddle won via DQ when Jimmy used a scooter to attack Riddle--and got caught for once. Nakamura & Riddle are the new number one contenders. 10:00-10:12pm EST.
  • Singles Main Event Match: Liv Morgan vs "the Eradicator" Rhea Ripley. Morgan won despite interference from Priest. Post-match, Bálor/Morgan/Priest took down Ripley & Priest. 10:35-10:45pm EST.
Miscellaneous Non-Match Segments of Note:
  • Big Time Address: Becky's heel promo was interrupted by both Asuka and Bianca Belair--her opponents for this weekend's triple-threat title match. 8:01-8:12pm EST.
  • The Rhodes Most Traveled...: Rhodes and Rollins cut promos, promising to destroy each other. The two came to blows and brawled in the crowd and ringside area, culminating with a dozen officials having to separate both men three times just to restore order. 8:54-9:07pm EST.
  • Miz TV: Featuring the Street Profits. The Profits caught the Miz with a Rock line (it doesn't matter...); 24/7 chaos ensued as Tamina won the belt from Dana Brooke, only to have Tozawa roll her up to win the title. Yeah, this was all the same segment--I didn't lose my place in typing. It was just that stupid. 9:25-9:31pm EST.
  • Contract Signing: Ahead of this weekend's handicapped match, Omos & MVP met Bobby Lashley to sign their contract. Our final, three-minute segment saw carnage unleashed at the contract signing. Meaning, same contract signing, different day. The whole shebang ended with Omos and Lashley brawling through security and Lashley spearing Omos through a table propped up in the corner. 10:56-11:02pm EST.
  • New Hell in a Cell Matches Announced: Theory defends his United States Championship against Mustafa Ali; The Judgment Day take on AJ Styles, Finn Bálor & Liv Morgan.
  • Friday Night on SmackDown: As we have no matches for HiaC, who knows what to expect?!
