Welcome to our coverage of Monday Night Raw, less than a week away from the Elimination Chamber PPV.

Tonight’s Raw is the go-home show for the Chamber PPV, which, as is becoming the norm in WWE, is set to be a history-making event. Not only is Sunday’s show hosting the first-ever Women’s Elimination Chamber match, but the men’s version of the match will feature seven combatants for the first time. The seven men that will compete in the Chamber, for the right to face Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania, will compete tonight in a Gauntlet Match, which comes as a nice change to the Raw main event. Prediction: Roman Reigns will not win the Gauntlet Match because he’s winning the Chamber.

As for the female Chamber combatants, they will all compete in a six-woman tag match tonight, pitting the babyfaces against the heels in a match that is sure to stir a few more stories ahead of the historic match. I also would not be surprised if a seventh competitor for this match also, which would indicate that the Chamber will feature seven pods, as opposed to the matches beginning with a Triple Threat. Regardless, we will know by the end of tonight!

Elsewhere on tonight’s Raw, we can expect further development in the storylines between Asuka & Nia Jax, The Miz & Finn Balor, The Club & The Revival, Braun Strowman & Elias, and more. Remember to download the Ringside Talk app and join in the conversation. Enjoy the show!

WWE Monday Night Raw opens with a moment of silence for the Florida School Shooting this past week. Thankfully, nobody was a jerk and broke the silence.

We then return from the opening video and out comes The Big Dog, Roman Reigns, who gets a hefty boo from Phoenix. We’re opening the show with the Gauntlet Match!


We see a replay of the end of last week’s show, which saw Finn Balor and Seth Rollins both score pinfalls over Bray Wyatt and thus we’re left with a seven man Elimination Chamber match.

Roman’s standing in the ring and he gets interviewed by Charly Caruso, who asks him if he’s worried about competing in this gruelling match tonight, just six days before the Chamber. The fans boo him like crazy. Reigns says no, he knows it’s an incredibly tough match even though he’s never competed in it. That being said, the most dangerous part is the men in the match and Reigns rhymes them off to boos and cheers from the crowd. He says be that as it may, it’s his time to face Lesnar because all those other guys proved they cannot do it. The fans boo and he says if they don’t believe him they can go back to WrestleMania 31 when he had Lesnar beat until…


Rollins comes to the ring. Rollins and Reigns will start the Gauntlet Match and when one is defeated, the next Chamber participant will enter, and that will continue until someone is left standing.

Gauntlet Match

Roman Reigns Vs. Seth Rollins

The two Shield brethren start the match and the fans are chanting “Burn It Down”. They lock-up and Roman forces Seth to the corner where the ref forces the break. They tie-up again and engage in a feeling-out process with some wrist locks and a headlock from Roman.

Rollins tries to fight out but Reigns immediately grounds him with the headlock again. Reigns is doing a weird amount of talking in the hold. Rollins finally gets to his feet and shoots Roman off of the ropes, only to eat a shoulder barge. Roman then hits the ropes and Seth ducks, leapfrog, then hits an arm-drag and a few unsuccessful pinfall attempts. Rollins hits the ropes and Reigns runs at him, stopping Seth in his tracks. The two share a stare-down as we head to the break.

*Commercial Break*


We return and Rollins is fighting out of another headlock, hits the ropes, and Reigns clobbers him with a back elbow. Michael Cole announces that three men will start the Chamber match, meaning the Chamber itself won’t be changed. Reigns hammers on Rollins in the corner, then lands a nice tilt-a-whirl backbreaker for a near-fall.

Reigns stalks Seth as the fans chant The Architect’s name, and Seth responds with a few kicks to create separation and follows-up with a blockbuster from the second rope and then the Slingblade. Rollins then clotheslines Reigns from a springboard, then clotheslines Reigns out of the ring. Fired-up, Seth goes for a suicide dive but Reigns lands a huge right hand and leaves Rollins dangling!

Reigns staggers around ringside before hitting a drive-by on Seth, who falls out of the ring Back in the ring, Reigns takes control of the match as he lands a huge right on Rollins and goes for the Superman Punch twice but Rollins counters each time; Rollins powerbombs Reigns into the turnbuckles, but The Big Dog bounces out with a huge Superman Punch and both men are down as we head to the break again.

Seth Rollins Vs. John Cena

Cena poses for the crowd in the ring as his music is still playing and Rollins clobbers him from behind, looks for an early pin but Cena kicks out and we take a commercial break. Great start to Raw.

*Commercial Break*

We return to see Seth trapped in a headlock and Cena’s still wearing his shirt. Rollins head must feel like a pimple from all of these headlocks. Seth fights out but gets hit with a big clothesline from Cena, who then finally takes his shirt off and tosses it to the crowd. Cena kicks Rollins, then applies a…headlock.

Cena is frustrated. He follows Seth as The Architect crawls to the corner. Cena backs-up and tells Seth to bring it. Rollins comes forward stumbling, holding his fists-up, and Cena floors him with a right hand. Cena stands behind Rollins and waits for him to turn around hits another right hand. Cena dances around the ring and Rollins swings for him and misses but Cena floors him again. This time, Rollins jumps back up and shoves Cena and the crowd goes crazy. Cena and him trade shots until Cena connects with a back elbow and Rollins is down.

Seth crawls onto the apron and Cena shoulder tackles him off to the floor. Rollins crawls back towards the ring and gets back in at 9 and Cena is unhappy. Cena asks the referee to stop the match because Seth won’t. This is how Rollins should have been booked as a babyface all along.

Rollins runs at Cena in the corner but gets flipped over and onto the apron.

Cena grabs Seth and hits an Attitude Adjustment but rather than pin he rolls through and lifts Rollins onto his shoulders for another but Seth climbs down, hits Cena with the Revolution Knee, then kicks the gut, hits the Curb Stomp and wins! WOW!

John Cena Eliminated

Is this as impressive as Jericho beating The Rock and Austin in the same night? Perhaps the stars aren’t as bright but Jericho didn’t do it back-to-back. Seth doesn’t get a minute to breathe because his next opponent is on his way to the ring before Cena can even leave.


Seth Rollins Vs. Elias

Elias sprints to the ring, his ribs bandaged from last week’s attack from Strowman, and immediately tries to pin Seth, who kicks out. Elias kicks and punches Seth and tries for another pin but again he finds no luck. Elias is aggressive and frustrated as we head to the break.


*Commercial Break*

We’re back from the break and the one-hour man, Seth Rollins, is trapped in a single leg Boston crab. We cut to a split-screen where John Cena is interviewed by Renee Young. Cena says there is nothing to take-away from Rollins because that was an incredible performance and he underestimated Seth’s heart and will. That being said, he’s spinning a lot of plates these days and he needs to know if he can still do it at this rate. He says on Sunday he has to step-up against seven men otherwise he doesn’t have a road to WrestleMania.

Meanwhile, in the ring Elias is pounding away at Seth, and Rollins falls down holding his knee. Regardless, Seth hits a superkick for a near-fall, then knocks Elias from the ring. Rollins thought about hitting a suicide dive but rather than run, he just turns and hits a crossbody over the top rope. Great selling there. Back inside the ring, Elias lands a kick to the face of Rollins and then the Drift Away. Elias covers and gets the three count.

Winner: Braun Strowman

After the match, Charly Caruso interviews Braun Strowman on the stage. She asks if his mindset will change despite never being in an Elimination Chamber match. Strowman doesn’t fear the unknown. The unknown fears him. This Sunday at Elimination Chamber, it’ll be the same thing. Then he’s going to WrestleMania to beat “Beastie Boy” Brock Lesnar because he’s not finished with him.
