Monday Night Raw Quick Recap for 5/3/2021

Matches Tonight: 9
  • Our first match saw AJ Styles & Omos defeat the New Day in a WrestleMania rematch for the Raw tag team straps. Omos was solid in his mic and very impressive in the ring. His moveset and total domination is remniscient of a young, WCW era The Giant (Paul Wight/the Big Show).
  • Charlotte Flair defeated Dana Brooke in a short, forgettable match.
  • Our third match saw Damian Priest clash with John Morrison in a short match. Priest picked up the win after the Miz inadvertently caused the ref to be distracted when Morrison had the pinfall in hand.
  • The Lucha House Party defeated the team of Shelton Benjamin & Cedric Alexander in an entertaining match.
  • Angel Garza defeated Drew Gulak in a short, fast-paced and entertaining match. Afterwards he shoved a rose up Gulak's butt. I'm not kidding.
  • R-K-Bro (Randy Orton & Riddle) defeated Elias & Jaxson Ryker to remain undefeated. Their streak is now a shocking 2-0!
  • Sheamus defeated a Raw-debuting Mansoor in a decent match when Humberto Carrillo attacked Sheamus to cause the DQ.
  • In a battle for the Women's Tag Team Championship, Jax & Baszler retained in a very short match. Jax, oddly, only fought for a few seconds at the beginning and the rest of the match was Baszler, who picked up the win with a Kirifuda Clutch on Lana.
  • In our ninth and final match of the night, WWE Champion Bobby Lashley defeated Braun Strowman due to a distraction by Drew McIntyre, who promptly laid out Lashley with a Claymore after the match.
Miscellaneous Non-Match Segments of Note:
  • Multiple minor segments built up storylines towards WrestleMania: Backlash, which is a week from Sunday.
  • Adam Pearce and Sonya Deville clashed a bit over Sonya's abuse of power. When Deville added Flair to the title match, Pearce angrily confronted Deville again.
  • A video package announced the return of Eva Marie with the "Eva-lution."
  • Charlotte Flair convinced "impartial" official Sonya Deville to add Flair to the women's title match at WrestleMania: Backlash.
  • After jobbing to the LHP, Cedric Alexander verbally laid into Benjamin and claimed that Benjamin is why they were kicked out of the Hurt Business. Their team is no more.
