Monday Night Raw Quick Recap for 4/5/2021

Matches Tonight: 6
  • Ahead of their Raw Tag Team championship bout this weekend, our first match saw the New Day's Xavier Woods defeat AJ Styles in an incredibly short match.
  • The second match of the night saw a 2-on-1 Handicap match--tornado tag format, meaning everyone is in the ring--between Braun Strowman and Elias & Jaxson Ryker. Braun won in another short, but watchable match.
  • Our third match was a non-title women's tag team match between Asuka & Rhea Ripley and the champs, Shayna Baszler & Nia Jax. Jax & Baszler won after Ripley turned on her partner. Good match, not as short as the others.
  • In our fourth match, Bobby Lashley of The Hurt Business destroyed former colleague Cedric Alexander. Just prior to the match, Cedric and Shelton Benjamin threatened MVP and insulted him. Lashley defeated Cedric with the Hurt Lock and after an attempted attack by Shelton Benjamin, Lashley put him in the lock, too.
  • Our fifth match saw United States Champion Riddle victorious over Mustafa Ali, who sported a completely new entrance and ring gear.
  • Our Main Event match featured Drew McIntyre taking on King Corbin, with a WrestleMania title shot on the line. In what proved to be a very good match, Drew McIntyre defeated King Corbin.
Miscellaneous Non-Match Segments of Note:
  • Lots of hype for the different matches this weekend. Possibly a solid 20 minutes or more spent on hyping the feuds and matches.
  • Miz & Morrison defaced Bad Bunny's $3.6 million Bugatti with red paint. Later in the evening, they jumped Bunny as he was checking out the damage.
  • It's official: Bad Bunny will team with Damian Priest in a tag match this weekend against the Miz & Morrison, instead of a singles' match.
  • It was confirmed during Ali's match that Retribution has officially disbanded.
