Monday Night Raw Quick Recap for April 4, 2022

Matches Tonight: Five (approx. 44 minutes)
  • Women's Tag Team Championship Match: Sasha Banks & Naomi(c) vs Liv Morgan & Rhea Ripley. Banks & Naomi won. This match may have been non-title but the outcome's the same (technical difficulties). After the match, Ripley seemed disappointed and left Morgan. 8:34-8:39pm EST.
  • Singles Match: Dominik Mysterio vs the Miz. Incredibly short match that saw the Miz win. After the match, Veer finally arrived and beat the crap out of both Mysterios, even locking Dom in a wicked cervical clutch that had the poor boy tapping out while changing colors. 8:55-8:59pm EST.
  • NXT Championship Match: NXT Champion Dolph Ziggler w/ Bobby Roode vs Bron Breakker. Bron Breakker finally beat Ziggler to recapture his title. Third time was the charm! 9:19-9:30pm EST.
  • Tag Match: Queen Zelina & Carmella vs Shayna Baszler & Natalya. The match never happened as Zelina and Carmella's relationship imploded, turning to violence. 9:49-9:52pm EST.
  • Six-Man Tag Match: Raw Tag Team Champions RK-Bro & United States Champion Finn Bálor vs SmackDown Tag Team Champions the Usos & Austin Theory. Theory picked up the win for his team. 10:03-10:15pm EST.
  • Texas Tornado Tag Main Event Match: the Street Profits vs the Alpha Academy. The Profits won after Ford used a Superplex from the top rope to put Gable through a table. 10:32-10:44pm EST.
Miscellaneous Non-Match Segments of Note:
  • The Rhodes to (and fro) WrestleMania: Rhodes cut an emotionally-laden promo. He boldly claimed the decision to come back was an easy one, and stated his intention to continue his father's legacy and seek the title. 8:07-8:22pm EST.
  • Kevin Owens Speaks: ELIAS returned, but is now known as "Elias' younger brother, Ezekiel." He has no beard and wears wrestling brief-tights with a Macho Man-inspired hair style and color palette. Looks like the Macho Man-themed character rumor had some merit. 8:44-8:50pm EST.
  • The Road Less Traveled Has Concluded: After what felt like 40 years in the Wilderness, Veer made his way finally to Raw! He debuted by ambushing the Mysterios and spending about two minutes beating them both down. 8:57-8:59pm EST.
  • New Raw Champion Bianca Belair Speaks: Belair cut a promo about what it took to finally win back her title, then put the division on notice that...no one is prepared...for Bianca. Make of that what you will (Asuka). 9:06-9:12pm EST.
  • "The All Mighty" Bobby Lashley Speaks: MVP turned on Bobby Lashley and, with Omos' help, beat Lashley and left him laid out. 9:38-9:43pm EST.
  • Hall of Famer Edge Speaks: Edge and Priest bonded over their new-found, mutual "not caring what you think" personality. The crowd heckled them, chanting "we are sheep" and "we are stupid" whenever Edge attempted to insult, chanting his insult right back. AJ Styles hit the ring but got the tar beat out of him. 10:20-10:28pm EST.
  • Unified WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns Speaks: Yes, let's make the title name longer. Roman only had about two minutes to speak due to the lengthy entrance. He took credit as the GOAT, said he's running in God Mode, and we'll find out his next step on SmackDown this Friday. 10:52-11:00pm EST.
  • Next Week on Raw: Women's Tag Team Champions Sasha Banks & Naomi defend against a near-imploding Rhea Ripley & Liv Morgan. AJ Styles vs Damian Priest w/ Edge will happen, too. Veer Mahaan vs Rey Mysterio.
