WWE Raw Results - December 27, 2021

The final show before Day 1

WWE presented a much-changed Monday Night Raw on December 27 2021, amid reports and speculation that a host of talent and backstage officials were not at or involved in the show due to 'COVID-19 related precautions'.

With that in mind, this week's Raw saw an NXT talent debut on the red brand, the return of a popular former General Manager, wedding vows renewed and a Tag Title match set for WWE Day 1.

The show opened as Raw Tag Team Champions RK-Bro continued their mini-feud with the Alpha Academy. Riddle was able to put away Chad Gable in singles action before Randy Orton finally RKOed Otis, claiming a win in their match as well.

Backstage segments with Kevin Owens and Nikki A.S.H were followed by a tag-team match between Reggie & Dana Brooke and R-Truth & Tamina, with Reggie pinning Truth for the win. Another tag-team bout followed as the much-anticipated RK-Bro-Nament Finals saw the Street Profits defeat Rey & Dominik Mysterio to earn a shot at the Raw Tag Team Championships.

At this time, NXT 2.0 star Grayson Waller would make his presence known, getting into a verbal exchange with AJ Styles - much like on last week's NXT. The two would go back-and-forth before Styles faces Apollo Crews, defeating the former United States Champion.

Seth Rollins cut a short promo, filmed from his home, before Kevin Owens came to the ring for a promo segment. This in turn led to a match with Cedric Alexander, which KO won. 

The final match of the evening saw Damian Priest defend the United States Title against Dolph Ziggler. Much like their bout last week, this ended in a disqualification.

The show closed with The Miz and Maryse renewing their wedding vows. Officiated by the returning Eric Bischoff, the segment came to an end as Edge appeared and gave the A-List couple a 'Brood Bath' in the ring.
