Monday Night Raw Quick Recap for May 2, 2022

Matches Tonight: Seven (approx. 49 minutes)
  • Six-Man Tag Match: Ezekiel (Elias' younger brother) & the Street Profits vs Kevin Owens & the Alpha Academy. Back and forth match that saw Owens help the Academy steal the win. 8:21-8:31pm EST.
  • Squash Match: Veer Mahaan vs Greensboro's Burt Hanson. Despite a passionate pre-match speech about wanting to make his hometown proud, Hanson was squashed in a minute. 8:46-8:47pm EST.
  • Singles Match: AJ Styles vs Damian Priest w/ Edge. Back and forth that saw Styles pick up the win. Post match, Priest attacked Styles until Finn Bálor made the save. The two former Bullet Club members hugged it out afterwards. 9:01-9:12pm EST.
  • 2-on-1 Handicapped Contenders Match: United States Champion Theory & the Miz vs Ali. If Ali wins, he'll receive a title shot against Theory. Ali failed to win, with the Miz and Theory being too much for the scrappy athlete. After the match, Ciampa attacked Ali. 9:32-9:36pm EST.
  • 24/7 Championship Match: Nikki A.S.H.(c) vs Dana Brooke w/ Reggie. Brooke lost the title in a segment prior to this match. Dana picked up the win and the belt again after a super short bout, then demanded a divorce from Reggie. 9:43-9:45pm EST.
  • Singles Match: Bobby Lashley vs Cedric Alexander w/ Omos & MVP. Despite MVP's repeated attempts to distract Lashley, the All Mighty persevered and picked up the W ahead of his match against Omos this Sunday. 10:11-10:20pm pm EST.
  • Six-Woman Main Event Tag Match: Raw Champion Bianca Belair, Asuka & Liv Morgan vs Becky Lynch, Rhea Ripley & Sonya Deville. Morgan picked up the win for her team after Deville attempted an illegal pin (and the ref refused to count for her). 10:45-10:57pm EST.
Miscellaneous Non-Match Segments of Note:
  • The Bloodline Return to Raw: The Bloodline returned to Raw but were immediately attacked by RK-Bro and Drew McIntyre. That's about it. 8:05-8:13pm EST.
  • A Phenomenal Stipulation: A stipulation was added to Styles/Priest tonight: Styles wins and Priest is barred from ringside Sunday at WrestleMania Backlash. 8:35-8:37pm EST.
  • Seth Rollins Appreciation Night: Rollins cut a heel promo about Dusty Rhodes and his inability to capture a world title, then declared that as long as there's a Seth Rollins, Cody Rhodes won't either. Rhodes came out, the two had words and it ended in fisticuffs with Rhodes getting the upper hand. 9:58-10:08pm EST.
  • WrestleMania Backlash: It's this Sunday.
