WWE Uncooked Outcomes| Monday, Could 16, 2022

Bobby Lashley def. Omos—Metal Cage Match

Attention-grabbing option to kick off WWE Uncooked with the Metal Cage match, particularly with no competitors from the NBA Playoffs.

The end made Omos appear to be a idiot and was sort of a heel end with Bobby Lashley flying via the cage wall and strolling out. Omos ought to have sprinted after Lashley and never allowed Lashley to gather himself and stroll out of the cage. Lashley, as a valiant babyface, may have had an ideal second by refusing to win underneath this technicality, and run again into the cage to struggle the large.

The successful ring announcement began with the phrase “as a result of distinctive approach that this has occurred…”

Veer Mahaan def. Mustafa Ali (Miz as Particular Visitor Referee)

Veer Mahaan’s match final week towards Frank Lowman was the most-viewed WWE Uncooked clip on WWE’s YouTube channel.

As a particular visitor referee, The Miz conveniently stood in entrance of Mustafa Ali to carry out a ten depend whereas Ali was making an attempt a dive.

This was Veer Mahaan’s first aggressive opponent in WWE, which suggests he needed to promote. He did all of his promoting whereas on his ft as Mustafa Ali did not knock him down.

Veer Mahaan was all too joyful to pose for a selfie whereas he had Ali trapped in his ending maintain.

Mustafa Ali was fortunately saved by the Mysterios, however Ali was nowhere to be discovered by the point they hit the ring. Not a superb signal for Ali.

Riddle def. Jimmy Uso

The development of Riddle taking over the Usos in singles competitors continued as Randy Orton someway has managed to keep away from these matches. Orton wasn’t even cornering Riddle for this one.

The Usos’ promo from Friday helped me understand that if the Usos win the title unification match this Friday on SmackDown, everyone within the Bloodline can have two belts.

Riddle had an ideal counter to an uppercut within the nook when he used a triangle maintain to flip Jimmy excessive rope.

There was a “countdown to Cody Rhodes” graphic throughout this match after promoting Cody Rhodes at 10 pm led to a bump in viewership final week.

After all of the wins Riddle has had over the Usos of late, there is no approach him and Orton are retaining this Friday—assuming that match (and end) occurs.

Finn Balor and AJ Kinds def. Los Lotharios

There was a (lengthy) Judgment Day promo previous to this match.

Los Lotharios proceed to decorate like Harlem Warmth. The nonetheless picture of Los Lotharios kiss cam was hilarious.

Along with their kisses, Los Lotharios even have some fairly spectacular double-team strikes, together with their team-up Boston Crab.

Humberto Carrillo took an superior bump after consuming a Finn Balor boot mid-moonsault.

Finn Balor and AJ Kinds may make an ideal full-time tag group, particularly if RK-Bro goes to proceed long-term, which I believe they need to.

Alexa Bliss def. Sonya Deville

Alexa Bliss has a brand new track that may have been advantageous for anyone besides Bliss, who had the most effective themes in all of WWE.

Bliss and Sonya Deville are mainly doing the Seth Rollins-Cody Rhodes storyline in a single week as Deville complained about being unprepared for a shock opponent.

Alexa Bliss gained back-to-back matches towards Sonya Deville, although Deville did get a visible pinfall on this match.

Cody Rhodes Challenges Seth Rollins to Hell in a Cell

Cody Rhodes appeared forward of schedule, however then WWE threw to industrial so the countdown to Cody could possibly be correct.

Cody Rhodes admitted to being one of many jealous boys on the again throughout The Defend’s run.

When Cody Rhodes mentioned “my story is just a little completely different,” I believed an AEW reference could not be too far behind.

Cody Rhodes mentioned “the distinction between a revolutionary interview and precise revolutionary actions…” I took that as Cody Rhodes subtweeting CM Punk.

Rhodes made certain to look straight into the digital camera earlier than asserting “Hell in a Cell.”

Seth Rollins grew to become the primary WWE Famous person in historical past to just accept a Hell in a Cell match whereas carrying a fishnet t-shirt.

Ezekiel vs Chad Gable

Kevin Owens has actually ramped up his announcement with Ezekiel, and it is getting actually excessive.

WWE featured a viral picture between Elias and Ezekiel.

Outcomes for Owens’ DNA take a look at for Ezekiel got here again inconclusive.

Kevin Owens continued to construct is case by saying he met Elias’ mother and father they usually by no means introduced up Ezekiel.

Ezekiel screamed out a phrase that rhymes with “shoooosh” and began with a D.

Whereas on commentary, Kevin Owens demanded for the graphic to be proven once more, and it as soon as once more displayed Ezekiel’s identify as an alternative of Elias.

Lacey Evans Seems Reside

Followers have been requested to face and applaud “mom, spouse, daughter and United States Marine” Lacey Evans. Evans spent most of her promo thanking the armed forces. Evans advised followers to “get off their butts” and applaud the veterans within the crowd. Evans mentioned she would assist the WWE Universe break the cycle. She undoubtedly appears to be trending heel.

Asuka def. Becky Lynch

This week, it was Bianca Belair seated ringside on commentary, suggesting she would intrude to pay Becky again, and Asuka, Lynch and Belair could face off in a Triple Menace match.

That is the second consecutive week {that a} ladies’s WWE Uncooked essential occasion began with lower than 10 minutes left within the present. What’s worse is there was nonetheless a industrial break.

I believed for certain there can be one other schmoz end, however Asuka gained, albeit with assist from the inexperienced mist. Good on them.
