Welcome to Ringside News’ live results, highlights, winners and reactions for the November 22nd 2021 episode of WWE RAW.
Start time for tonight’s show is 8:00 PM EST. Match-by-match highlights and results from the show will take place on this very page, so you should update frequently to get the latest happenings. Feel free to leave any reactions in the comment section below.
Survivor Series took place last night and WWE RAW won the night with a scoreline of 5-2 over SmackDown. That said, there didn’t seem to be much score-keeping on behalf of WWE so maybe that’s irrelevant this year. Regardless, RAW’s men and women teams prevailed over SmackDown’s, but the WWE Champion, Big E, was beaten by Roman Reigns. We should get the fallout from these matches tonight, as well as some new feuds starting ahead of the TLC PPV next month.
Unfortunately, WWE hasn’t announced any matches or segments ahead of time tonight, which usually indicates a hectic atmosphere backstage. One thing we do know, is that both the RAW and SmackDown rosters will be present as Adam Pearce and Vince McMahon try to figure out who stole Cleopatra’s egg from Vince’s office last night. Who knows what that might entail but with Vince on hand it should be fun if nothing else.
And that’s the preview for tonight’s RAW. Our live coverage will begin from 8PM right here. Let us know if you’re excited about any of it and remember to hit the refresh link below and enjoy the show!
Monday Night RAW opens with Vince McMahon sitting in his office with Sonya Deville and Adam Pearce and an empty box. We see a replay of last night when Vince arrived at the arena with Cleopatra’s egg, a very expensive gift from The Rock, which was then stolen.
Vince isn’t happy because Pearce or Deville hasn’t found the egg or the culprit. He can’t believe someone stole from him! Vince says if they can’t find the egg by the end of tonight, Pearce and Deville are going to be fired. Pearce says they do think it’s a Superstar and Deville says they have blurry security footage of bare legs but that’s it. Vince says if someone can bring him the culprit, they’ll get a title shot against Big E tonight!
Randy Orton is interviewed backstage and asked where Riddle is. Orton says Riddle could get lost in his own house but it’s not like him to miss a match. He says last time he saw him they’d just beaten The Uso’s. Riddle then appears with the same faical hair and clothes as Randy but the facial hair is glued on. He says he’s trying to be Orton, and he even talks like him. Orton says he told him to act like him, not be him but Riddle tells them to hit the music and makes his way to the ring.
The match starts and Ziggler hits a single-leg and pins Riddle for a one-count. They lock-up and this time Riddle takes him down with a cross armbar but Ziggler rolls him over for a two-count. Ziggler takes Riddle down again, then releases and connects with a dropkick for a two-count, then fish-hooks Riddle and rips his fake moustache and goatee off.
Riddle gets angry and beats Dolph into the corner before spinning him around in circles and hitting a gutwrench suplex. Dolph rolls outside and Riddle jumps over the ropes at him but gts caught with a superkick! Roode and Ziggler pose like Orton to mock him as we head to the break.
Back live and Riddle catches Ziggler with a knee, then some running forearms in the corner. Ziggler fires back but runs into a Randy Orton-esque snap powerslam. Ziggler rolls to the apron and Riddle grabs him for the draping DDT but Dolph clambers inside and flips him over the ropes to the floor.
Riddle rushes back in and Dolph catches him with a Fameasser for a near-fall. Ziggler delivers some kicks and knees, then goes to the corner and stomps up the band but Riddle counters the superkick with a switch knee. Riddle drops down and punches the mat like Randy, then hits an RKO for the win!
As soon as the match ends, Roode rushes inside but Orton intercepts him. Orton hands Riddle his moustache back and hits Roode with the Bro-Derek. RK-Bro pose and the fans go nuts.
We go backstage and Superstars are losing it, searching for Cleopatra’s egg. Rhea Ripley, Cedric Alexander, the Viking Raiders, etc, are flipping tables and throwing things all over. R-Truth thinks he’s found it but it’s a football. Truth opens a door and it’s the woman’s changing room and he gets stuff thrown at him.
The RAW Women’s Champion, Becky Lynch, comes to the ring. We see highlights of her incredible match with Charlotte Flair from Survivor Series, which Lynch won by rolling her up and holding the ropes. Lynch will speak after the break.
Big Time Becks is in the ring and the fans are changing her name. Becky says she’s had some of the biggest moments of her career in Brooklyn, like three years ago when she slapped Charlotte across the face and became The Man. And last night was the culmination of almost a decade of hurt and betrayal. She says she wanted to maim Charlotte and she wanted to do the same to her, and the fans loved every minute of it.
Lynch says that chapter is over and it’s time for something fresh and new. Lynch asks who the fans want to see next and she floats out some names that get cheers from the fans, Liv Morgan receiving the biggest pop. Lynch says she used to care what they thought but now she knows they’re full of crap. They say they want something new but she watched ten women break their backs last night and the fans did nothing but chant and wave.
Lynch says she actually agrees with them though because none of those women have what it takes. And the fans are cheering for Morgan because she’s the new underdog. Lynch says Liv Morgan has won one match in four years and she definitely doesn’t have what it takes. She has a death-grip on the title and nobody is getting it from her. Lynch poses with the belt and leaves.
We see some highlights of last night’s women’s tag team Survivor Series match, in which Bianca Belair was the sole survivor for RAW. Belair makes her way to the ring. She says last night she was able to win the match because of the love from the fans. And she proved that she is the fastest, the quickest, the toughest, the roughest, and the best. Belair says maybe now Doudrop will find something better to do with her time than come for her.
The match begins and Tamina forces Belair backwards to the ropes. Belair breaks away and flips over Tamina before taunting her. Belair hits a dropkick and a suplex, then dances with her hair. Belair hits a handspring moonsault for a two-count. Tamina hits a couple of superkicks and a Samoan drop for a near-fall. Tamina hits a hip attack in the corner, then applies a submission.
Belair fights up from the submission but gets caught with a back elbow. Tamina taunts the fans before whipping Bianca to the corner. Tamina looks for a shoulder tackle but Belair avoids it and she htis the ring post. Belair moves to the apron and kicks Tamina, then gets back in and picks her up and hits the Kiss of Death for the win!
After the match Natalya attacks Belair but she gets thrown out of the ring where her and Tamina retreat. Belair is attacked from behind, again, by Doudrop, who hits a flying crossbody before leaving with Tamina and Natalya.
Seth Rollins comes to the ring and he’s in a great mood after being the sole survivor for Team RAW. He says he did what he was born to do: put the show on his shoulders and carry it to victory. He takes a few bows and the fans start singing his theme music. He says the best part is, he did it all by himself. Rollins runs down his teammates, laughing at each of them.
Finn Balor makes his entrance and, as he’s standing on the apron, Rollins attacks him! Seth goes out and beats Finn into the barricade before getting him back inside. Balor fights back and sends Rollins out of the ring, then dives over the ropes onto him. Balor runs around to dropkick Seth but gets caught and dropped on the barricade. Seth throws Balor over the announce desk, then stomps him repeatedly as the fans sing his music again.
Rollins lifts the steel steps and hits Balor with them, then gets him back inside and hits The Stomp. Rollins makes his way up the ramp but turns and comes back down to hit a second Stomp. Seth heads up the ramp again and a fan hops the railing and tackles him to the ground! The camera cuts away and we see relays of Seth’s beating of Balor. Rollins is standing on the stage with a busted lip when we return.
Backstage everyone is still running around manic, looking for Cleopatra’s egg. Sami Zayn is in Vince McMahon’s office and Vince asks why he’s here. Zayn says he just wants to calrify that if he has the details he can get a title match and Vince confirms it. Zayn says he knows who took it. He’s almost certain. 95% sure. Vince tells him to bring them in but Zayn says they aren’t at the building yet and McMahon rolls his eyes and tells him to come back when he has them.
Kevin Owens is backstage with a flashlight looking for the egg. He gets stopped for an interviewed and asked why he abandonded his team last night. Owens brushes that off and says he’s been looking for the egg and that’s a pretty big deal, but if he isn’t the one to bring it to Vince he’ll be playing close attention to who does.
AJ starts against Ford and backs him into the corner but Montez fights back and tags Dawkins for a double-team. Styles avoids a second double-team and tags Omos and the Profits look scared. They bail from the ring and try to come up with a strategy on how to fight the colossus.
We return to see Ford hit a standing moonsault to Styles. He attempts a springboard but AJ avoids it and hits a Pele kick. Styles looks for the Styles Clash but Ford flips him over. Ford wants to tag but Dawkins isn’t on the apron and in comes Omos. Ford psyches himself up and jumps at Omos but hits a wall. Montez gets back up and unloads with a flurry of punches and kicks but gets clotheslined out of his boots. Dawkins returns but Omos tosses him right back out. Dawkins pulls out a bag with a fire extinguisher and brings it into the ring to spray Omos!
After the bell, Styles springboards at Dawkins but he gets sprayed with the extinguisher as well! The Profits high-tail it and Omos is furious.
Queen Zelina and Carmella are interviewed backstage about their Tag Team Title match tonight. Carmella says they’re only concerned about Rhea RIpley, Nikki A.S.H is fun but nothing to fear. Ripley has been carrying the team but they’ll overpower her with their beauty and their brains. And they’ll be the new Women’s Tag Team Champions.
Carmella gets her mask on properly tonight and starts the match against Ripley. Rhea lands some short-arm clotheslines and Carmella tags out.

Pearce, Deville and Sami Zayn are in Vince’s office and they bring in Austin Theory, who has the egg with him. McMahon asks why he did what he did. Theory says he just wanted to take a selfie with the egg but there was so much security he got scared and bolted. Vince asks for proof and Theory shows him the selfie. Vince says Zayn did a lot in getting Theory in here but he admires Theory’s gumption, so he’s getting the title shot. Zayn loses it and says Vince promised him the match but Vince tells him to shut up and says nobody like a snitch.

As soon as the match ends, the cavaclade of jobbers rush the ring but before they get there, Dana Brooke hits a blockbuster off the ropes to Cedric and pins him! Dana Brooke is the New 24/7 Champion. None of the men want to attack Brooke, so she poses with the title and they just watch.
We see a replay of Bobby Lashley beating Rey Mysterio last week. The Mysterio’s are backstage and Dominik says he’s sorry for not intervening. Rey tells him Lashley isn’t the first monster he’s came across but tonight they can work as a team to take him down.
Dana Brooke is interviewed backstage and she says she will happily defend the 24/7 Championship anytime because she already lives her life like a Champion, 24/7.
The Mysterio’s come to the ring where Lashley is waiting. Before the match starts, MVP grabs a microphone and says he respects the Hell out of Rey Mysterio. He’s a giant in the industry but as a father he leaves a lot to be desired. Rey has faced a lot of monsters but none like Lashley, so what is he going to do when Dominik is in the Hurt Lock? When Rey goes home he’ll have to explain to his wife why Dominik is injured and she’s disguted, give her his number.

He’s young, brash and very talented, but after he beats him and retains the title he’ll be feeling pretty damn good.
Liv Morgan is interviewed and she says barely gets out a word before Becky Lynch interrupts her. Lynch says last night, Liv underdelivered again. She was on a team full of winners and she failed. Which takes her back to Money In The Bank and everyone was rooting for her, she got her fingers on the briefcase, and then someone knocked her off.
Becky says Nikki A.S.H won that match and got the title that Liv will never get her hands on. Liv says she touched it last week and Becky says she lets kids touch it every day when she does signings.

Damian Priest comes to the ring for an open challenge. Apollo Crews comes out and Commander Azeez says Apollo is son to restore the glory to the U.S Championship. Apollo says Damian has a split personality, unlike him who embraced his Nigeran heritage. He’s more powerful than ever, a Nigerian warrior, and he will prove that Priest isn’t fit to hold the title.
Priest tells him to shut up, they’re in New York and he should shut-up and fight. Apollo says Damian is a funny guy, but his answer is no.
