Hello again wrestling fans, and welcome back to the Raw Talk Recap! After the latest episode of Monday Night Raw, WWE taped another edition of Raw Talk, which can be seen on Peacock and the WWE Network. Check out the full show below.
⁃ The show kicks off with footage from Raw, where the 2021 King of the Ring Tournament continued.
⁃ In the studio, Jackie Redmond and Matt Camp cover the Raw Talk Headlines, until Matt pitches the show over to San Francisco.
After his apparent falling out with his partner Mansoor, Mustafa Ali joins Kevin in the arena. Kevin begins by asking Ali about the “attack,” and Mustafa stops him to say “whoa, you’re just like everybody else! Why are you judging me on the action? Why aren’t you judging me for the intention behind it? I was trying to save Mansoor! But did he listen? He is gonna learn... Mansoor I challenge you to a match at Crown Jewel, and when I beat you in front of your friends and family, you will then know the pain and shame I live with everyday. You will experience it, and you will finally learn what I’ve been trying to teach you since day one.”
Kevin throws Raw Talk back over to Matt and Jackie, who sends the show to an ad break.
⁃ Matt drops the names of the rest of today’s guests, and the show heads to a break.
⁃ On the other side of the break, more highlights from Raw are aired.
⁃ Matt and Jackie cover some of the highlights from the Queen’s Crown Tournament, until Matt sends Raw Talk back to Sarah in the Chase Center.
Fresh off of defeating Natalya to advance in the Queen’s Crown Tournament, Doudrop stops by Raw Talk for a quick chat. Sarah begins by asking Doudrop what the opportunity to compete in the tournament means to her, and Doudrop explains “this opportunity means the world to me, because there is no one like me in this tournament. I feel like I’m doing this for all the kids who are just a little bit different, everyone who just didn’t fit in. I’m fighting for them!” Sarah reminds Doudrop that she’s set for a collision with Shayna Baszler in the second round, and Doudrop explains “listen, I’ve been waiting my whole life for Shayna Baszler. When we come face to face, I’m gonna give her something to be scared of.” Sarah quickly throws the show over to Matt in the studio, who looks ahead to the last guest of the day.
⁃ Jackie and Matt share a few thoughts on the upcoming Smackdown Women’s Championship match, until Raw Talk is sent to a final break.
⁃ The show returns from the break, and the host’s reflect on Jeff Hardy’s clash with Austin Theory.
⁃ Matt and Jackie share a few thoughts on the last guest, and we go back to Cali one last time.
Back in the Chase Center, the New Day join Kevin Patrick, after going 1-1 in the King of the Ring Tournament. Kevin fires away with questions, and points out Kofi’s loss, before congratulating Woods. Xavier stops Kevin, and tells him “first of all that’s a rude introduction!” Kofi explains “you didn’t ask a question. You said you would ask a question, and said ‘you couldn’t get the victory.’” Kevin wonders if the duo have mixed emotions after Raw, and Kofi says “we’re doing great. Do you understand what the King of the Ring means to Xavier! This man has wanted nothing more than to be the King of the Ring.” Xavier steps in, stating “do you understand why? Because as a child watching, learning, reading about King Arthur... I learned that the king is the most important title in the company. I want the power! I’ve earned it, I’ve worked for this, and I will have it. I have a little crick in my neck, because heavy is the head that wears the crown!” The final interview comes to a close, and Kevin sends Raw Talk back to the WWE Global Headquarters for a few final thoughts from the host’s.
⁃ Matt and Jackie put a bow on all of the action from Monday Night Raw, and Raw Talk fades to black.
That’s all for this weeks Raw Talk Recap! Thanks for stopping by, and have a great day everyone!
