Mr. McMahon is missing his golden egg. Adam Pearce and Sonya Deville have been called into his office to find out who stole the $100 million Cleopatra Egg that The Rock gifted him. Wait, this happened during Survivor Series?!?
There are no leads on who stole the egg. Vince can’t believe someone stole from him. Sonya says a search turned up noting. Vince tells them that the egg better be returned or they won’t be returning to their jobs. This is dumb. Vince offers a WWE championship match to whoever has information about his egg.
Kevin Patrick wants to interview Riddle, but can’t find him. Orton knows it’s not like Riddle to miss a match. Riddle stops Orton in mid sentence as he is in his best Orton cosplay. Orton tells him that’s enough. He just wanted Riddle to be more like him, not actually become him.

Monday Night RAW 11/22/2021
Barclay's Center, Brooklyn, New York
After weeks of RAW featuring wrestling and having strong episodes, tonight’s show undid all that good work. A literal egg hunt was the through line for the show and set up the man event. Talk about stupid. After a strong RK Bro segment and match, RAW went down hill and completely cratered. Is it any wonder that one of the worst shows in recent memory is one where Mr. McMahon had a prominent role?
