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
- Xavier Woods defeated Bobby Lashley by pinfall.
- Eva Marie and Doudrop were on Alexa’s Playground even though only Doudrop was invited. Eva Marie made it all about herself and got offended about Bliss calling her an “extra bonus” and forced Doudrop to leave with her.
- Jinder Mahal (with Shanky and Veer) had messed up Drew McIntyre’s sword, but The Scottish Warrior got the last laugh. Mahal hadn’t stolen the real sword, but a replica. Meanwhile, McIntyre trashed Mahal’s motorcycle backstage.
- Fatal 4-Way Match: Nikki A.S.H. defeated Alexa Bliss, Asuka and Naomi
- Ivar defeated AJ Styles by pinfall.
- Omos defeated Erik by pinfall.
- United States Championship Match: Sheamus defeated Humberto Carrillo by pinfall.
- Falls Count Anywhere Match: Ricochet defeated John Morrison by pinfall.
- Rhea Ripley defeated Natalya by pinfall.
- Bobby Lashley trashed the VIP Lounge and sent a message to Kofi Kingston about how he’s going to rip him in half at Money in the Bank.
- Dakota Kai defeated Ember Moon by pinfall. After the match, Xia Li came out to challenge Raquel Gonzalez and say she’s standing in the way of her destiny.
- Tyler Rust defeated Bobby Fish by pinfall.

- NXT Breakout Tournament Round 1 Match: Duke Hudson defeated Ikemen Jiro by pinfall.
- Kacy Catanzaro and Kayden Carter defeated Aliyah and Jessi Kamea by pinfall. After the match, Aliyah turned on Robert Stone, saying she’s done more for him than he’s done for her. Franky Monet then showed up and Kamea walked off with her.
- Adam Cole cut a promo about how he beat Kyle O’Reilly, talked some trash about Samoa Joe and said nobody in the locker room was man enough to face him. That prompted Bronson Reed to head to the ring and say he’s up for the challenge. After a brief scuffle, Reed stood tall in the ring while Cole tried to run off. Samoa Joe came out to get ready to referee the main event and stared down Cole for a moment.
- NXT Championship Match with special guest referee Samoa Joe: Karrion Kross (c) defeated Johnny Gargano by pinfall to retain the title. Kross then choked out Joe after the match.
- Jaxson Ryker defeated Angel Garza
