Monday Night Raw Quick Recap for October 25, 2021

Matches Tonight: Eight
  • Triple-Threat Number One Contender Tag Match: the Street Profits vs the Dirty Dawgs vs the Alpha Academy. The Dirty Dawgs picked up the win after Omos attacked the Profits. 8:22-8:33pm EST.
  • Singles Match: Queen Zelina Vega vs Doudrop. Vega used the old "remove the turnbuckle padding, then hit your opponent with a foreign object while the ref puts the turnbuckle padding back on" tactic to pick up the win. 9:47-9:50pm EST.
  • Non-Title Singles Match: United States Champion Damian Priest vs T-Bar. Priest won by DQ when T-Bar threw Corey Graves' chair at Priest. Priest then snapped and beat the tar out of T-Bar all around the ring and inside it. 9:17-9:20pm EST.
  • Singles Match: Carmella vs Liv Morgan. Corey Graves' new fiance BLANK Liv Morgan in the new-to-Raw feud. Very disjointed match, but decent despite neither dominating. Carmella picked up the win after a super-short match. 9:29-31pm EST.
  • Singles Match: Keith "Bearcat" Lee vs Cedric Alexander. Lee, looking a bit leaner and meaner, squashed Cedric Alexander easily. 9:38-9:41pm EST.
  • Singles Match: Dominik Mysterio vs Austin Theory. Theory mostly-dominated the match and picked up the win with his finisher, the ATL. 9:50-9:52pm EST.
  • Raw Tag Team Championship Match: RK-Bro(c) vs the Dirty Dawgs. The previously-announced opponents, Styles & Omos, were replaced by the Dawgs for this title bout. Great match that brought the crowd alive. RK-Bro retained. 10:01-10:14pm EST.
  • Fatal 4-Way Number One Contender Main Event Ladder Match: Seth Rollins vs Finn Bálor vs Rey Mysterio vs Kevin Owens. Good match that saw Seth Rollins pick up the win and become the new number-one contender for Big E's WWE Championship. 10:34-10:58pm EST.
Miscellaneous Non-Match Segments of Note:
  • Season Premiere: It's a new day on the red brand as our season premiere also premiered this season's new roster. It is the season of being premiere-ish, after all.
  • Big Beginning: WWE Champion Big E opened our program. Finn Bálor, Seth Rollins, Rey Mysterio, and Kevin Owens (not in that order) each came out to make a case for why they should get a title shot. WWE Official Sonya Deville set a fatal four-way ladder match for later tonight to determine the new number one contender. 8:00-8:14pm EST.
  • A Royal Engagement, Red Edition: Praise was shown for the Queen's Crown winner, Zelina Vega, and a coronation ceremony was held. Zelina went in and out of a British accent at different times and declared herself the only Queen in WWE.
  • Something Old: Lynch cut an arrogant promo; Belair challenged Lynch for the title again. Lynch accepted--for a future date. 8:54-9:08pm EST.
  • Something New: Damian Priest debuted new theme music.
  • Something Borrowed: We had a video package for Veer, who has been split away from Jinder Mahal & Shanky (who are now on the Blue brand). He debuts soon on Raw.
  • Something Blue: Former Blue-brand SmackDown stars Bianca Belair and Becky Lynch will fight next week for the Raw Women's Championship.
