Monday Night Raw Quick Recap for 6/7/2021
All in all, a decent outing, albeit a bit odd.
Matches Tonight: Seven
- In a battle royal to determine the new number one contenders for Raw Tag Team Champions AJ Styles & Omos' title, the team of the Viking Raiders defeated the teams of Lucha House Party, the New Day, the Miz & Morrison, T-Bar & Mace, and R-K-Bro. As reported earlier, notable injuries included Gran Metallik (who did not arrive) and the Miz (who was in a wheelchair and did not participate).
- Our second match saw Jaxson Ryker defeat Elias in under four minutes after Elias gave up mid-match and ran off to the back.
- Our third match saw Humberto Carrillo battle Ricochet to a draw as both men were counted out. United States Champion Sheamus, complete with a broken-nose guard, watched from commentary as one of these men is expected to be his next title contender. The match ran roughly 3-5 minutes, not counting commercials.
- In our fourth match of the night, Jeff Hardy defeated Cedric Alexander in a short match.
- The tag team of Nikki Cross & Asuka defeated the team of Raw Women's Champion Rhea Ripley & Charlotte Flair. The odd coupling was made by Deville/Pearce and imploded when both women failed to get along, setting up a brawl to end it and allowing Cross to pick up the pin for the third week in a row over one of the two.
- Mansoor defeated Drew Gulak in singles competition.
- In our main event, Riddle lost to Kofi Kingston, leaving Orton quite disappointed with his partner.
Miscellaneous Non-Match Segments of Note:
- AJ Styles & Omos' "State of the Tag Team Division" (think: State of the Union) was simply the champs' attempt at guesstimating which team they may fight, while both praising their future number one contenders while also assuring victory whenever they do clash.
- Sheamus' nose was legitimately broken last week, and he's now wearing a face guard.
- Jaxson Ryker, officially split from Elias, debuted a new look (short-shewn, nearly shaved hair, new tights and a heavily trimmed beard).
- Tomorrow night's NXT will feature a "Priceless Announcement" from "the Million Dollar Man" Ted DiBiase. It'll also feature a "face off" between the five men fighting at NXT TakeOver: In Your House 2021 for the NXT Championship.
- Special Stipulation: if Drew McIntyre fails to defeat Bobby Lashley at Hell in a Cell, he'll never receive another WWE Championship title shot again. The match will also take place in the Hell in a Cell match.
- Drew McIntyre and the Almighty champion, WWE Champion Bobby Lashley, signed the contract for their upcoming showdown at Hell in a Cell.
- Eva Marie's Eva-lution will debut next Monday.
- Alexa's Playground featured Shayna Baszler tonight as our show-ending segment. The scene ended with Baszler fleeing backstage, avoiding falling equipment and trying to hide from Lily (the doll).
