Monday Night Raw Quick Recap for May 9, 2022

Matches Tonight: Nine (approx. 47 minutes)
  • Raw Tag Team Championship: RK-Bro(c) vs the Street Profits. Great match with a fantastic finish that saw RK-Bro retain, barely. They now will attempt to unify the Raw and SmackDown tag team championships. 8:15-8:25pm EST.
  • Singles Match: Liv Morgan vs Rhea Ripley w/ the Judgment Day. Ripley won by submission. 8:48-54pm EST.
  • Singles Match: Finn Bálor w/ AJ Styles vs Damian Priest w/ Judgment Day. Bálor won when Edge speared him to cause the DQ. After the match, Styles and Bálor were beat down by the Judgment Day. 9:00-9:04pm EST.
  • Singles Match: Sonya Deville vs Alexa Bliss. Bliss made her return and sported attire that was akin to her Goddess-era, but with darker themes (and a Lily doll, akin to her more recent gimmick). Bliss won in seconds with her Twisted Bliss off the top rope. That was probably the only bit of offense. 9:26-9:26pm EST.
  • Singles Match: Veer Mahaan vs Frank Lomen (local talent). Veer won via Cervical Clutch submission within moments. 9:46-9:47pm EST.
  • United States Championship Match: Theory(c) vs Cody Rhodes. Cody Rhodes won via DQ when Seth Rollins attacked, ending a solid match. 10:00-10:12pm EST.
  • Tag Team Match: the Boss & Glow vs Doudrop & Nikki A.S.H. Boss & Glow won and Doudrop/Nikki A.S.H.'s just-formed tag team has already broken down. 10:20-10:25pm EST.
  • Singles Match w/ Special Guest Referee: Tommaso Ciampa vs Ali w/ the Miz as special guest referee. Miz, as heel referee, did everything he could to ensure Ciampa won, including a seriously fast count. 10:31-10:37pm EST.
  • Championship Contenders Main Event Match: Raw Champion Bianca Belair vs Asuka. Becky Lynch came out ahead of the match to watch its result. Short match that saw Belair win via DQ when Lynch attacked her. Lynch proceeded to beat Asuka afterwards.. 10:56-10:58pm EST.
Miscellaneous Non-Match Segments of Note:
  • Tag Team Title Unification Threat, Round II: RK-Bro declared their intention to unify the tag titles and will head to SmackDown this Friday (assuming they successfully defend against the Profits tonight). 8:04-8:10pm EST.
  • Judgment Yay: Judgment Day--the new faction led by Edge and featuring Damian Priest and newest recruit Rhea Ripley--addressed the WWE Universe. Edge--sporting a suit and new, likable haircut--introduced "the Punisher" Damian Priest and "Rhea the Eradicator" as part of his Judgment Day. He then stated he wasn't through recruiting and they were looking for more. 8:35-8:43pm EST.
  • Even Raw Can't Escape Evans: Remember those depressing Lacey Evans promos on SmackDown for the last five weeks? They've made their way to Raw....
  • Next Week on Raw: Bobby Lashley vs "the Nigerian Giant" Omos in a Steel Cage Match.
