Monday Night Raw Quick Recap (12/14/2020)

Monday Night Raw Quick Recap for 12/14/2020

For those of you who want just the quick results and don't want the details of matches, this is a quick recap of tonight's show. There are spoilers for tonight's show below. The full results can be found right here. This is also the go-home edition of Raw, as TLC is this weekend.

Matches Tonight: 7

  • "The Nightmare Before TLC" was a Miz, Morrison, and Styles segment denigrating Drew McIntyre. You can catch the word-for-word "Christmas story" in the full results, linked above.
  • AJ Styles defeated Sheamus in a slow-paced match. Afterwards, Omos attacked Sheamus (for maybe 20 seconds) and AJ beat the heck out of Sheamus with a steel chair.
  • The Hurt Business (w/ MVP) defeated Jeff Hardy & the New Day (w/ Riddle) in a solid tag match.
  • Lana defeated Nia Jax by pin fall in a shocker. After the match, Baszler & Jax beat her viciously, focusing on her lower left leg, before Asuka made the save. Asuka had been attacked backstage by Baszler as the match in the ring ended.
  • Elias had a segment in which he introduced Jaxson Ryker as...his roadie or perhaps bodyguard, since those are in style now. Ryker said that Elias' music changed him and he was tired of seeing Elias' concerts constantly interrupted and he swore to put an end to it.
  • In a two-on-one handicapped match, the Miz & Morrison barely defeated Keith Lee.
  • Bray had a Firefly Fun House field trip to the ThunderDome. Basically, he apologized to Orton for last week and explained that he was going to make TLC very not fun for Orton. Orton challenged Wyatt to a game of hide-and-go-seek.
  • Mace of Retribution defeated Ricochet in one-on-one action. Slapjack, Reckoning, T-Bar and Mustafa Ali joined the commentary team/area during the match.
  • Dana Brooke defeated Shayna Baszler by disqualification after Nia Jax intervened in the match. Jax & Baszler beat Brooke until Mandy Rose & Asuka made the save.
  • Bray Wyatt & Randy Orton played a game of hide-and-go-seek, culminating with Orton trapping Wyatt in a box and setting it on fire--only to be blindsided moments later by the Fiend. The Fiend put Orton to sleep with the Mandible Claw.
  • Riddle defeated MVP with three entire moves in a match that lasted less than two minutes. Final Flash running knee strike, Bro-ton, pin.
  • Our "main event" was an Ascension Ceremony. This entailed Styles and McIntyre telling each other how they're going to win this Sunday at TLC. Drew's belt was placed on the hook and raised to the ceiling, saving precious time on Sunday I presume. Afterwards, the Miz & Morrison attacked Drew. Drew fought back, nailing both with Claymores, but Styles caught him off guard. Styles had Omos give him a variety of weapons. Styles then used ladders and chairs to beat Drew mercilessly. AJ then set up a table, put Drew on it, climbed the ladder and proceeded to put Drew through the table to end our program.
Reminder: Smackdown airs on FS1 this Friday!

Just a reminder because something or another is pre-empting the Fox broadcast of Smackdown.
