Welcome to Monday Night Raw for the 12th of February and we’re back in San Jose, California.
We’re two weeks away from the Elimination Chamber in which we will see a woman’s Chamber for the first time. In that match, Alexa Bliss will put her title on the line and the odds are hugely stacked against her. With that in mind, Bliss is determined to increase her chances of success by forging an alliance, potentially with an old foe and friend, Mickie James. Will James agree and potentially increase her own chances? Or is she tired of Alexa’s antics?
As for the men’s Chamber match, we already know that the match will consist of John Cena, The Miz, Braun Strowman, Elias, and Roman Reigns, but we need our sixth man. That position will be determine on tonight’s show with a Fatal 4-Way match between Finn Balor, Apollo Crews, Matt Hardy and Bray Wyatt. I think it’s fair to assume Balor is the man who will fill the final spot and promotional material from WWE has said as much. Anyway, then we will have our six-man Chamber match ready to go and I for one and very excited to see Strowman inside the structure, although a Reigns win feels sadly inevitable.
Elsewhere on tonight’s show, Bayley will take-on her longtime rival and best friend, Sasha Banks! The two have been a little bit at odds recently, with both women been frustrated at losing to Asuka. So tonight Kurt Angle decided to book them in a match together that is sure to create even more animosity and we could be looking at a heel turn from one of the ladies. Also, Seth Rollins’ last two tag partners have gone down with injury, leaving the Kingslayer without a partner and in need of some direction, which we should learn about tonight.
That’s the preview for tonight’s show, remember to download the Ringside Talk app and join in the conversation. Enjoy the show!
