WWE Monday Night Raw Highlights – 21 March 2022

Monday Night Raw this week started on an high note and ended on a high note as well. Seth Rollins’ search for a spot at WrestleMania 38 continued. AJ Styles returned after taking a week off to recover from the injury caused by Edge. Here is what happened on the episode of Raw.

Kevin Owens impersonates Stone Cold

Monday Night Raw opened today and we heard Stone Cold’s music. People in the arena were right on their feet and waiting for the big return. But after some time we saw Kevin Owens who came out in an Austin shirt with a bald cap on his head impersonating Stone Cold. He didn’t stop there, he went on to use all the catchphrases used by Stone Cold to mock the legend. We got to hear Steve Austin’s music again and Owens pretended to be scared, but then he revealed it was just another ruse. He mocked the crowd, failed to catch the beer cans and he further went on to mock the crew members. He called one of the crew member to the ring, delivered a stunner and gave the guy a beer bath. What a start to the show and what a performance by Kevin!

Dirty Dawgs vs The Mysterios

The Mysterios made their way to the ring first followed by the Dirty Dawgs. Dirty Dawgs were accompanied by The Miz who joined the commentary team. Dolph Ziggler and Dominik started the action and just after a couple of minutes of action Seth Rollins interrupted the match demanding a WrestleMania spot. His mic was cut off. The match then continued and The Mysterios got the win by pinning Roode. The Miz attacked Rey after the match and removed Rey’s mask at the ring side and took it with him. Dominik and Rey tried to cover Rey’s face.

Omos vs. Apollo Crews and Commander Azeez

Omos faced Commander Azeez and Apollo Crews in a handicap match. Last week Omos defeated Azeez and after the match he attacked Crews. The match started with Crews and Azeez getting early advantage but Omos fought back. He slammed Commander Azeez and hit him with a big boot. Omos slams Crews with the big Choke Bomb now. Omos drags Crews on top of Azeez and pins them both at the same time.. This was another dominant display for Omos. WWE is planning to have Omos at WrestleMania 38.

AJ Styles returns to WWE Raw

AJ Styles returned after taking last week off to recover from Edge’s brutal attack and gave a promo directed at WWE Hall of Famer Edge. He said he didn’t want to wait until WrestleMania and called Edge out, but it was Rollins who showed up instead. Seth suggested he and Styles face each other for Styles’ spot at WrestleMania. Styles was not interested but Adam Pearce and Sonya Deville came out and booked the match.

Rhea Ripley and Liv Morgan vs. Natalya and Shayna Baszler

Zelina Vega expects more commitment from Carmella for the team. Rhea Ripley and Shayna Baszler started he match. The match was controlled early by Morgan and Ripley and later Natalya and Baszler had the upper hand in the match. Baszler scored the win for her team. Zelina showed up and leveled Ripley with her scepter. Mella took out Natalya and Baszler before the champs had a quick confrontation. They ended up hugging to show that they have officially made up.

Lynch came out and gave an interrupted promo about her upcoming Raw Women’s Championship match against Belair at WrestleMania.

Austin Theory vs. Finn Balor

Pat McAfee joined the commentary team to watch Finn Balor and Austin Theory fight. McAfee kept trying to get involved in the match until Balor was able to win with an inside cradle. The match itself was pretty average for these two guys, but McAfee’s hilarious antics made it a lot more entertaining.

RK-Bro vs. Alpha Academy

After interrupting last weeks match between Matt Riddle and Ford Alpha Academy faced RK-Bro. Otis and Gable controlled the early minutes of the match with fundamental tag team tactics. They used quick tags to keep themselves fresh and double-team moves to keep their opponents on defense. Riddle was able to get the win, but Otis took out both members of RK-Bro after the match. The Street Profits then came out and attacked.

Reggie and Dana Brooke vs. Akira Tozawa and Tamina

Brooke and Reggie ended up winning in less than a minute. Tozawa took a shot below the belt and sold it more than anyone has sold a similar spot in years.

AJ Styles vs. Seth Rollins

Seth Rollins main evented Monday Night Raw again. Last week he lost to Owens, this week he face AJ Styles. It was a great match were both performers were having an incredible match. AJ Styles set Rollins up for a Phenomenal Forearm and out came Edge with a chair strike to AJ Styles. Seth Rollins lost the match as a result of a disqualification. Rollins grabbed a mic and said Raw won’t happen next week unless he gets his WrestleMania moment. The show ended with him tearing apart the ringside area.
