What Happened After RAW went off the air?

WWE Monday Night RAW Results for May 23, 2022


Matt Riddle opens up tonight’s Monday Night RAW with a promo – alone. Riddle says he’s out here with a heavy heart tonight. Randy Orton is his best friend, his mentor, his dude – his bro. He added the last couple of years have been hard for Randy, even the last couple of months. He reveals Orton has been dealing with back issues for so long.

He knew despite this, Orton wouldn’t let him down because he knew how much it meant to him, and how much it meant to the fans. Riddle then rips into Roman Reigns and The Usos for their cheating ways this past weekend. Riddle promises to get his vengeance on The Bloodline. Riddle thanks Orton for everything he’s done for him, and says he knows he’s watching at home, and that he loves him.

But to be honest, I don’t know what the future holds for RK-Bro. He doesn’t know if RK-Bro will ever be a thing again. Riddle asks for everyone to get on their feet, because he knows Orton is watching, and chant “RK-Bro,” and the crowd follows along to close the segment.

Matt Riddle & The Street Profits vs. The Usos & Sami Zayn

A very exciting matchup between the six men, but Riddle was able to nail Zayn with the RKO for the victory in the end.

Winners: Matt Riddle and The Street Profits

Bobby Lashley is out next for his Almighty Challenge for Omos. He hypes up his win over Omos inside a Steel Cage last week. Lashley said he’s not surprised that he heard he and Omos will be competing against each other again at Hell In A Cell. Lashley calls out Omos and MVP, who soon come out and answer the call.

Lashley and Omos bicker back-and-forth. Lashley says he wants a match tonight, and the winner will pick the stipulation for he and Omos’ match at Hell In A Cell. However, Lashley’s opponent for tonight will be MVP. MVP accepts the challenge, and Omos makes his way down to the ring with MVP.

Lashley takes out MVP from the ring apron, and both MVP and Omos retreat.

The Judgement Day are out to the ring now.

We get a backstage segment with Becky Lynch and Adam Pierce. Lynch said Asuka cheated in their match last week. Pierce said the fair thing to do since both women attempted to and did cheat last week is to have them have a rematch. If Lynch wins she’ll be added to the match at Hell In A Cell against Bianca Belair, making it a Triple Threat.

We’re back with Judgement Day. Priest orders the audience to rise and show the proper respect to the Judgement day. Priest says he and Rhea Ripley are different, and Edge was the only one to see it. If they hadn’t, they’d still be sheep like them. Rhea Ripley then takes the chance to bash Liv Morgan, saying she uses her heart more than her head. Ripley again invites Morgan to join The Judgement Day.

Edge says The Judgement Day is truth. A truth in front of everyone’s faces, but they’re too afraid to see it. Edge then teases – who is going to be next to join The Judgement Day?

Mixed Tag Team Match: AJ Styles and Liv Morgan vs. Damian Priest and Rhea Ripley

Edge interfered towards the end, stopping Morgan from hitting Oblivion, instead slamming herself. Ripley then got the rollup for the win.

Winners: Damian Priest and Rhea Ripley

We get a backstage interview with The Miz, hyping up his main event matchup with Cody Rhodes later tonight.

WWE Hall Of Famer Jerry “The King” Lawler is out for his “King’s Court” segment with Veer. Veer comes out and is silent for the first few of Lawler’s questions, but grows angry with his jokes.
