Let’s Talk Wrestling : WWE Raw – Episode 1492 (12.27.2021) (Review)



Detroit, Michigan

Dec. 27th, 2021



Singles Match
Chad Gable (w/Otis) vs. Riddle (w/Randy Orton)

A quick but good submission and grounded type match. Gable and Riddle both got to show off what they can do that way and Riddle sold for a lot of it. It was done before they could do much though and Riddle quickly got the pin at the end. 

2.5 / 5

Singles Match
Randy Orton (w/Riddle) vs. Otis (w/Chad Gable)

Another quick match. Nothing great here except that Orton tried to constantly RKO only for it not to hit until Otis finally missed a move and Orton could deliver. 

2 / 5

Mixed Tag Team Match
R-Truth & Tamina vs. Dana Brooke & Reggie

A pointless match involving people who could be doing better while dealing with the always pointless 24/7 title. 

.5 / 5

RK-Bro-Nament Final Match
The Street Profits (Angelo Dawkins & Montez Ford) vs. The Mysterios (Dominik Mysterio & Rey Mysterio)

A good action filled tag match. Street Profits are great in ring as a team and Mysterio helped hold it together. Dominik is young and not all his moves look like they hit so he can be iffy in ring. He did spend a lot of time in ring this match though which could have been changed some. 

3 / 5

Singles Match
AJ Styles vs. Apollo Crews (w/Commander Azeez)

Its good to see Styles back as a singles guy. Him and Apollo mixed well together giving us an action filled match. A bit more time might of worked here but this showed just how good Styles is at 44. His styles clash here though looked so underwhelming. 

3 / 5

Singles Match
Kevin Owens vs. Cedric Alexander (w/Shelton Benjamin)

A pretty bland and dominate win for Owens who is great but barely featured ever. Alexander is great as well but never in the position to win much so you knew what would happen here. 

1.5 / 5

WWE United States Title Match
Damian Priest (c) vs. Dolph Ziggler (w/Robert Roode)

A shockingly boring and bland match from these two. The boring parts had even the crowd not caring. Having a finish that’s a DQ by one of the lamest ways possible did nothing to help and only buried the match even more. Damiens crazy eyes do nothing when the results end up awful.

1.5 / 5
