169 views

Welcome to another edition of WWE Recap Report — a breakdown of the biggest takeaways of the week from WWE programming for those who may have missed out.

Whether you need to catch up on a show, had too busy of a week to stay on top of the breaking news or just skipped out on WWE as a whole, I’ve got you covered.

Obviously, not every single thing will be recapped here in detail. But this is your TL;DR of the week to be caught up to speed before the next Monday Night Raw so you’re not left in the dark.

With that being said, here is a quick rundown of this week in WWE.

MONDAY NIGHT RAW

  • Promo: Seth Rollins and Cody Rhodes
  • Sasha Banks and Naomi retained the Women’s Tag Team Championship over Livv for Brutality by pinfall. After the match, Rhea Ripley argued with Liv Morgan. Ripley then turned on Morgan by attacking her.
  • Bianca Belair isn’t supposed to put her hands on Sonya Deville while she’s an authority figure, but she did anyway. Adam Pearce saw to it that she was fined only $1, while the higher-ups are looking into punishing Deville for abusing her power.
  • Veer Mahaan defeated a jobber (Jeff Brooks) by submission.
  • Kevin Owens had Chad Gable check over a lie detector test about Ezekiel clearly being Elias. Ezekiel passed every question, so Owens got upset, and also had hired Gable to fight Ezekiel. Ezekiel beat Gable by disqualification after Otis got involved.
  • The Street Profits defeated RK-Bro by pinfall.
  • Edge and Damian Priest spoke about why they’re heels now and how Edge has challenged AJ Styles for another match at WrestleMania Backlash. In the locker room, Styles accepted the challenge and was attacked by Edge and Priest.
  • Theory defeated Finn Balor by pinfall to win the United States Championship.
  • The double wedding saw Reggie pin Dana Brooke, Tamina pin Reggie, Akira Tozawa pin Tamina and Dana Brooke pin Tozawa to then retreat with the 24/7 Championship back in her hands.
  • MVP and Omos challenged Bobby Lashley to an arm wrestling match.
  • Cody Rhodes defeated Kevin Owens by count-out after Owens walked out, offended at Seth Rollins yelling at him to get his fat ass back into the ring and to fight his battle for him.

NXT

  • The show started with Pretty Deadly addressing their tag team title win from last week. Grizzled Young Veterans came out to say Pretty Deadly only won the titles because they weren’t involved in the match. Legado del Fantasma then went straight after Zack Gibson and James Drake. Right after that, Bron Breakker walked into the ring and called out Joe Gacy, who said he isn’t hard to find.
  • Tiffany Stratton defeated Sarray by pinfall.
  • Grayson Waller defeated Sanga by pinfall.
  • A vignette aired about a little girl playing the WWE video games growing up to become Roxanne Perez (aka Rok-C). She’s going to debut in NXT next week. Roxanne’s interview with McKenzie Mitchell was interrupted by Toxic Attraction. Mandy Rose told her she shouldn’t set her bar too high, as she’s not going to reach it. Then, they told her to move up her debut to tonight.
  • Legado del Fantasma defeated Grizzled Young Veterans by pinfall. Fallon Henley went after Elektra Lopez during the break.
  • Wes Lee was asked by McKenzie Mitchell about his future. Lee has a lot of doubts about things after the chaos of the past few weeks. Xyon Quinn interrupted and said he should maybe teach him a lesson. Lee has his doubts, but he’s at home in the ring.
  • Carmelo Hayes defeated Santos Escobar by pinfall. Two guys in suits who must be associated with Tony D’Angelo interfered and went after Escobar to give Hayes the advantage. After the match, Hayes and Trick Williams said the North American Championship is coming home in two weeks. Solo Sikoa then took out Hayes and Williams and had a brief stare down with Grimes to say he’s got the next title shot after that.
  • Natalya defeated Tatum Paxley by submission.
  • Tony D’Angelo was asked about the goons who attacked Escobar. He denied it and complimented Escobar’s car.
  • Xyon Quinn defeated Wes Lee by pinfall.
  • While Natalya had put the locker room on notice, Nikkita Lyons is actually coming after Natalya.
  • Roxanne Perez defeated Jacy Jayne by pinfall.
  • Legado del Fantasma saw that their car has a boot on it and a dead fish on the windshield.
  • NXT Tag Team Championship Match: Pretty Deadly defeated Dexter Lumis and Duke Hudson by pinfall to retain their titles.
  • Bron Breakker confronted Joe Gacy, who said he’d return Rick Steiner’s Hall of Fame ring if Breakker agreed to giving him a title match in two weeks. Breakker agreed, Gacy gave the ring back and said Breakker needs to take a leap of faith before pushing him off the set.

NXT UK

  • Back Alley Brawl: Sam Gradwell defeated Kenny Williams by pinfall. A masked Superstar had distracted Williams during the match and stalked him into the back after it was over.
