WWE heads to the Wells Fargo Arena in Des Moines, IA for tonight’s episode of RAW. Here are the focus points for the show:
Reigns battles Wyatt in Elimination Chamber Qualifying Match
Last week, three hard-hitting Qualifying Matches determined that Braun Strowman, Elias and John Cena would compete in the Men’s Elimination Chamber Match on Sunday, Feb. 25, with the winner of that hellacious bout going on to challenge Brock Lesnar for the Universal Championship at The Showcase of the Immortals, WrestleMania.
However, there are three slots left in the match, and WWE.com can now confirm that Roman Reigns and Bray Wyatt will clash one-on-one on Raw for the right to enter the structure, where WrestleMania glory will be on the line.
Which Superstars will compete in the first-ever Women’s Elimination Chamber Match?
Asuka defeated Sasha Banks in an incredible matchup this past Monday night. And while the entire WWE Universe awaits the 2018 Women’s Royal Rumble Match winner’s decision as to which title she will challenge for at WrestleMania, the Raw Women’s division shifts its focus to Sunday, Feb. 25, when the first Women’s Elimination Chamber Match in history is waged for the Raw Women’s Championship.
We already know that Little Miss Bliss will be entering the formidable structure to defend her prize, but who else is going in? Look for female Superstars to be confirmed this Monday for this anticipated and history-making match.
What’s next for The Miz?
With a little help from his co-stars, The Miztourage, The Miz defeated Roman Reigns in their Intercontinental Title rematch this past Monday night on Raw. This brings The A-Lister that much closer to walking under the bright lights of WrestleMania with Team Red’s workhorse championship around his waist.
Now that The Big Dog has been turned back, will we see a new challenger step up to the “must-see” Intercontinental Champion? We’ll find out on Raw.
The Bar is raised
After Jason Jordan’s injury transformed Royal Rumble’s Raw Tag Team Championship bout into a glorified 2-on-1 Handicap Match, Cesaro & Sheamus defeated Seth Rollins and the “gold-blooded” son of Kurt Angle to become four-time champions. After the brawlers put away Titus Worldwide the following night on Raw, all eyes are on The Celtic Warrior and The Swiss Cyborg as they once again rule over Team Red’s tandem division.
Last year, Cesaro & Sheamus walked into WrestleMania with the Raw Tag Team Titles. Will history repeat itself this year in New Orleans?
“Top Guys” finally live up to their nickname
Injuries have plagued The Revival since their debut on Raw last year, but Scott Dawson & Dash Wilder finally seem to be clicking like the “old-school” teams they emulate, picking up back-to-back victories over Luke Gallows & Karl Anderson and Heath Slater & Rhyno on the Royal Rumble Kickoff and Raw, respectively.
Who will get a wrestling history lesson from these throwbacks this week?
