Monday Night Raw Quick Recap for August 15, 2022

Matches Tonight: Seven (approx. 78.5 minutes)
  • WWE Women's Tag Team Championship Tournament, Round One Match: Alexa Bliss & Asuka vs Nikki A.S.H. & Doudrop. Bliss & Asuka proved this writer's an idiot (see the preview) and advanced. They'll face Dakota Kai & Iyo Sky next week in the semi-finals! 8:19-8:29pm EST.
  • Tag Team Match: Mustafa Ali & Cedric Alexander vs the Miz & Ciampa. Ciampa & the Miz won. 8:42-8:52pm EST.
  • Singles Match: Drew McIntyre vs Kevin Owens. A new-found aggression led to KO dominating McIntyre for nearly fourteen minutes. McIntyre picked up the DQ win when the Usos attacked him. 9:12-9:28pm EST.
  • Squash Match: Veer vs Beau Keller. The opponent's first name is probably spelled wrong; regardless, the local talent was squashed mercilessly by Veer as expected. 9:50-9:51pm EST.
  • United States Championship Match: Bobby Lashley(c) vs AJ Styles in their first-ever singles match. Great, lengthy match that saw Lashley win clean over Styles. 10:02-10:24pm EST.
  • Singles Match: Dakota Kai w/ Iyo Sky & Bayley vs 24/7 Champion Dana Brooke. How this match was four minutes, I've no clue, but Kai won and in strong fashion. 10:30-10:34pm EST.
  • Singles Main Event Match: Dolph Ziggler vs Theory. Fantastic match that saw Theory picked up the win. On paper, it sounded like a lame choice for a main event; in reality, both Superstars shined bright as Theory upset the veteran. 10:43-10:58pm EST.
Miscellaneous Non-Match Segments of Note:
  • The Judgment Day Spoke: Rhea, Finn & Damian cut a promo disrespecting the Mysterios, threatening to destroy Edge next week in Toronto, then took a few moments out of their busy schedule to beat the crap out of Rey Mysterio. The weekly tradition continues. 8:01-8:11pm EST.
  • Drew McIntyre Spoke: Drew cut a promo about his upcoming battle with Roman in the Castle in Cardiff; KO came out and the two exchanged words, setting up their match tonight. KO's shifting back to a more dominant, serious character and McIntyre is definitely being given some room to flex his ruthless aggression. 9:00-9:09pm EST.
  • Riddle & Rollins Spoke: Rollins cut a promo insulting Riddle ahead of an announcement regarding Riddle's medical clearance. Riddle feigned being in his mom's basement, revealed he had medical clearance, and hauled ass to the ring to kick Rollins ass! Riddle and Rollins brawled into the crowd to end the segment, Rollins high-tailing it out of the arena. 9:34-9:41pm EST.
  • Next Week on Raw: Edge competes in Toronto for the first time in over a decade as he takes on Damien Priest next week. Alexa Bliss & Asuka take on Dakota Kai & Iyo Sky in a semi-finals Women's Tag Team Championship Tournament match.
