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
- RK-Bro retained the Raw Tag Team Championship over The Street Profits by pinfall.

- VIP Lounge with Omos led to Bobby Lashley interrupting and fighting with Omos and Cedric Alexander.
- Alexa Bliss defeated Sonya Deville by pinfall in a quick match. Deville is no longer an authority figure and is just a competitor.
