WWE Raw Talk Full Recap (8/23)

Hello again wrestling fans, and welcome back to the Raw Talk Recap! After the latest episode of Monday Night Raw, WWE taped another edition of Raw Talk, which can be seen on Peacock and the WWE Network. Check out the full show below.

Raw Talk

⁃ The show kicks off with footage from Raw, where United States Champion Damian Priest faced off with WWE Champion Bobby Lashley.
⁃ In the studio, Kayla Braxton and Matt Camp cover the Raw Talk Headlines, until Kayla pitches the show to San Diego.

Charlotte Flair

Sarah begins the interview with Charlotte by asking the new Raw Women’s Champion to reflect on her victory at SummerSlam. Charlotte explains “I am the 12-time women’s champion, the most decorated Champion in all of WWE. I started the first ever women’s revolution, and I started another one tonight.” Sarah follows up by asking Flair about Alexa Bliss, who interrupted Charlotte on Raw. The Champion tells viewers “honestly when I saw Lilly and Alexa Bliss walk out, I saw an accomplished woman. But she brings out a doll out? That’s cute, but the Queen doesn’t do cute. Alexa and Lilly can bow down like the rest of them.” Sarah pitches it back over to Kayla and Matt, who sends the show to an ad break.

⁃ Kayla mentions Jinder Mahal is up next, and the show heads to a break.

**Commercial Break**

⁃ On the other side of the break, more highlights from Raw are aired.
⁃ Matt and Kayla cover a few more moments from Monday Night Raw, until Kayla sends Raw Talk back to Kevin in California.

Jinder Mahal

Kevin Patrick is in San Diego with “The Modern Day Maharaja,” and Kevin asks Jinder about his assault on Mansoor. Jinder tells Kevin “Mansoor defeating me is laughable. Tonight was about setting the tone for the biggest, baddest version of Jinder Mahal the WWE has ever seen.” Kevin wonders if Mahal can elaborate on that statement, and Jinder explains “let me remind you that I’m a former WWE Champion. Mansoor you think you’re a challenge? Again, laughable! I have Veer & Shanky with me.”
Kevin thanks Jinder for stopping by, and throws the show over to Kayla in the studio.

⁃ Kayla announces Damian Priest will be the final guest of the day, and Raw Talk is sent to one last break.

**Commercial Break**

⁃ The show returns from the break, and more footage from Monday Night Raw is shown.
⁃ Matt and Kayla share a few thoughts on Damian Priest and Bobby Lashley, until Kayla tosses the show back to San Diego for one last interview.

Damian Priest

The new United States Champion is backstage in San Diego, and Kevin wonders why Priest came face to face with Lashley on Raw. Damian explains “look, I have respect for Bobby, but running your mouth and calling people cowards doesn’t fly with me. I legit just wanted to shut him up.” Kevin follows up by asking Priest about his conversation with Drew McIntyre, and Damian tells viewers “Damian Priest is a celebrator, and I know Drew McIntyre can handle a good time. So we’ll go have one.” Kevin asks one final question, and he wants Priest to sum up his experience in Las Vegas. Priest reflects on the moment, and says “that was the stage I wanted. My name is now in the history books. My name literally will live forever now.” The final interview comes to a close, and Kevin sends Raw Talk back to the studio for a few final thoughts from the host’s.

⁃ Matt and Kayla put a bow on all on the action from Monday Night Raw, and Raw Talk fades to black.

That’s all for this weeks Raw Talk Recap! Thanks for stopping by, and have a great day everyone!
