WWE Raw Results – February 11, 2019

Welcome to Ringside News’ coverage of Monday Night Raw!

The McMahon Family has invited Becky Lynch back to Raw this week, despite suspending her last week. Perhaps it’s because she showed-up at SmackDown Live regardless and attacked Triple H. Regardless, Lynch is on tonight’s show and likely to continue plying her best Stone Cold impression. It’s seemingly just me, but I’ve been thoroughly unimpressed by Lynch’s persona; her mic work is sub-par at best, and her rivals tend to come off looking much better as she just stands and smirks at them with no retort. Hopefully this can start to change. Becky’s opponent Ronda Rousey however, will be facing Ruby Riott as a hurdle on her way to WrestleMania, so we can expect the Riott Squad to start attacking her tonight.

Also on tonight’s show, Seth Rollins returns to address his heinous beatdown at the hands of Brock Lesnar. The two won’t come to blows until April 7th, so it’s unclear if WWE intends to slowly build the feud, or throw Rollins into something small in the meantime. I reckon we will find out tonight.

Elsewhere tonight, WWE is teasing another retirement speech from Kurt Angle, more from Finn Balor and Bobby Lashley, Dana Brooke Vs. Natalya, and potentially more from Elias, Road Dogg, and Jeff Jarrett. That’s the preview for the show. Remember to follow us on Instagram and download the Ringside News app to join in the conversation. Enjoy the show!

Monday Night Raw

Raw opens with Triple H and Stephanie already in the ring. Stephanie welcomes us to the show, and she reminds us we’re on the Road to WrestleMania. This Sunday will be the Elimination Chamber PPV, where they will crown the first-ever Women’s Tag Team Champions.

The move on to talking about Becky Lynch Vs. Ronda Rousey, then show the start of last week’s Raw, when Lynch attacked Stephanie, as well as he turning up on SmackDown Live and attacking Triple H. Stephanie says, despite what happened, they are still going to give the fans what they want. She then says Becky did in fact see the doctor this past week and let’s hear what they had to say.

Becky Lynch doesn’t give them a chance to reveal the results, as she comes out and makes her way to the ring. Triple H says the doctor confirmed that the doctor cleared her and says there is nothing wrong with her knee whatsoever. Therefore, her suspension is lifted and she will indeed face Ronda Rousey at WrestleMania…if. If Becky can do one little thing: apologise to the both of them. They say she is a role model to fans and little girls all around the world, and she needs to uphold that.

Becky doesn’t want to do it and tells Stephanie to “shut your face”. She says she doesn’t trust her, Triple H, or Stephanie’s “old man”. She says she will fight them all. She tells them to shove their apology up their “arse” and turns to leave but Steph prevents her and they start yelling. Triple H tells her to stop being stupid and stubborn, and she should want to fight at WrestleMania, rather than tonight. He says he wants her to come out later tonight and show that she is The Man, by apologising.

Bayley and Sasha Banks make their way to the ring and interrupt those within. They have a triple threat match ahead of the tag team elimination chamber match.

*Commercial Break*

We return to see Nia Jax and Tamina’s entrance, in which they cut a generic split-screen promo. The losing team in this match first in the Elimination Chamber.

Tamina drags Morgan over to the corner and has her tag in Jax. Nia comes in and hits Bayley with a Samoan Drop for the pin and the win.

Winners: Tamina Snuka & Nia Jax

After the match Bayley looks longingly at the WWE Women’s Tag Team Championships. Seemingly frustrated with Banks, teasing a potential heel turn for Bayley? Her and Banks will be first into the Chamber.

We see Becky Lynch walking backstage and she walks past Elias, who will be out next for a walk.

*Commercial Break*

Elias strums a chord and greets the crowd. We immediately go backstage to see Finn Balor tell Becky Lynch to wait and bide her time. That’s what he’s doing. Soon, he’ll take Bobby Lashley’s Intercontinental Championship. Balor suggests she not let pride get the better of her and apologize.

Elias strums a chord… but we immediately go to a video package of Seth Rollins’ journey to WrestleMania.

We’re back live in the arena with Elias, who strums a chord, but he’s immediately interrupted by the Lucha House Party. Elias groans in fury. They dance around Elias in the ring.

*Commercial Break*

As soon as we come back from the break Elias goes off on the Lucha House Party, seemingly pissed-off at listening to their music during the break. Elias is furious that his album wasn’t nominated at the Grammy’s. He says he was the greatest artist on the planet. Kalisto says they love entertaining the WWE Universe, but tonight they want to Walk With Elias.

Elias sits down and tells everyone to shut their mouths. Elias sings about how he used to sing songs for them, but now he has nothing left to give. When he comes to Grand Rapids, he loses his will to live. The city is filled with losers and the people are all the same. Kids, it’s not your fault; it’s your stupid parents to blame for living in Grand Rapids. The crowd boos him. Elias asks the Lucha House Party what they think. They confer and put their thumbs down. Elias says there is no one like them. Elias asks if they think they can do better than him. Kalisto thinks he can. Elias has him sit on his stool and gives him his guitar. Kalisto plays a chord and Lucha House Party celebrating but the crowd are not into it. Elias says he’ll do a duet with Kalisto. He just has to get his other guitar. Elias then smashes the guitar off his back and runs away while the Lucha’s are left angry.

WWE Intercontinental Champion Bobby Lashley makes his way to the ring alongside Lio Rush.
