WWE Raw Results – February 11, 2019

Seth Rollins makes his way to the ring to a nice reception. He comes to the ring and stares at the WrestleMania sign. 

Rollins says he was going to come out here and talk about Brock Lesnar and WrestleMania, but he got a chance to watch that highlight reel from the past year. How about that ride? From running the gauntlet last year and lasting 65 minutes to winning the Intercontinental Championship and defending it on six continents… he was glad to share it with everyone. This was the year he finally felt like Seth Freakin’ Rollins. Rollins rode that wave of momentum all the way to the Royal Rumble and punched his ticket to WrestleMania. Rollins was on top of the world until the bottom dropped out the next night in the form of Brock Lesnar and six F-5’s.

The bad news is he is in a lot of pain from six F-5s. The good news is he took six F-5s and is still here. If he can stand, then he can fight. If he can fight, then he can Stomp. If he can Stomp, then he can beat Brock Lesnar. Rollins has been asked what is it worth to him. Rollins doesn’t care. If WrestleMania is the last match of his career…

Paul Heyman comes out to the stage and introduces himself. Heyman has a WrestleMania-level surprise for them. Heyman introduces Brock Lesnar but then says he is not here tonight and the crowd boos. Rollins says that’s no surprise to anyone – hopefully not going for the exact same storyline as last years’ WrestleMania. Heyman says ignorance is indeed bliss. Heyman is here to educate the crowd and Rollins. Rollins is operating under the misguided notion that all men are created equal. They’re not. Does Rollins really believe in his heart that his DNA matches Brock Lesnar’s DNA? Rollins is a top tier athlete and one of the best he’s ever seen… but Brock Lesnar is a Beast. Brock Lesnar is a predator. Brock Lesnar is a career killer. Brock Lesnar is a merciless sadist with an unrepentant soul. If Rollins goes into WrestleMania with the mindset that he’ll do anything including making WrestleMania the last match of his career, then he’s on a suicide mission. Heyman is giving him fair warning: if he walks into WrestleMania and tries to take the Universal Title from Lesnar, he’ll be the architect of his own demise. That is not a prediction. It’s a spoiler.

Rollins says Heyman is right, but what he doesn’t seem to understand is that he doesn’t care. Brock Lesnar has held this industry that he loves more than anything hostage for too long. Rollins will not stand for it anymore. Rollins doesn’t care if WrestleMania is a suicide mission. He’ll be that martyr. He’ll sacrifice his body, his heart, and sell his soul to the Devil. Rollins will burn in Hell to avoid having Lesnar continue on as Universal Champion. Rollins says that is not a prediction. It’s a spoiler. Heyman looks concerned and goes to the back.

That’s not all for Rollins though, because Dean Ambrose comes out and makes his way to the ring. Ambrose asks for the microphone, and Rollins gives it to him. Ambrose says he has one thing to say to Rollins: “Slay the Beast.” Ambrose nods at Rollins and sits in the timekeeper’s area. Rollins smiles and walks off.

Ambrose rolls from the ring to regroup after the match and he lays by the barricade.

We see Becky Lynch sitting backstage when Alexa Bliss walks up to her. Bliss tells her not to apologise and show weakness. Bliss says a lot of the girls in the back look up to her. Bliss tells her to not say sorry. Lynch says if she doesn’t apologise, then that frees up her place for the RAW Women’s Title at WrestleMania. Lynch asks if this has anything to do with the fact that Bliss wants her spot at WrestleMania. Bliss says she would never. She just wants to see Lynch be true to herself. Lynch says there isn’t a genuine bone in her body. Bliss says she can apologise and not be The Man. She’ll just be a sellout. Lynch says if she does apologise, the only thing she’ll sellout is WrestleMania. Lynch walks off, leaving Bliss gawking.

The Tag Team Champions, Bobby Roode & Chad Gable make their way to the ring to defend their titles!

Becky Lynch makes her way to the ring for her big decision.

*Commercial Break*

In two weeks time we will be having a 70th birthday party for the Nature Boy, Ric Flair!

We’re back with Lynch in the ring and out comes Triple H and Stephanie. All three are in the ring and Stephanie says it’s been a long night, and asks if Becky will let cooler heads prevail, and go on to main event WrestleMania. Triple H says, whether she believes it or not, they want this to work out. Stephanie says she meant what she said earlier, they want to see her Vs. Ronda because that’s a massive match that will make history. So she asks her again, if she will say those two little words, or throw away her moment in history.

Becky listens to the crowd’s mild chants for a minute but Triple H says not to listen to them, their opinions do not matter. He asks her what she wants. Lynch says she thinks the two of them don’t want her anywhere near that match. She says again, she does not trust them, and she got angry when she thought her moment was being taken away. But if all that’s keeping her away from her dream, then…”Stephanie, Triple H, I’m sorry.”

She says now that that nonsense is out of the way, they have a deal, right? She says if anyone stands in her way between now and WrestleMania she will deal with them. Triple H says they wouldn’t have it any other way and congratulates her before shaking her hand. They turn and leave. Becky asks “is that it?” and they say yes, that is it. Lynch is shocked, and says it’s set, The Man Vs. The Baddest Woman On The Planet in MetLife Stadium.

Speaking of whom, the Women’s Champion, Ronda Rousey comes out and gets into the ring. Before they can come face-to-face though, Vince McMahon comes out and whoahs them. He says he needs to get something off his chest. They could definitely be one of the greatest WrestleMania main events of all time. But he thinks they think they are bigger than WWE. And he doesn’t like bad attitudes, and that goes for both Becky Lynch and Ronda Rousey. He says Becky is not that man, he is still the man! He tehn tells Lynch that she is officially suspended for 60 days, which means she will miss WrestleMania! He follows-up by saying that they will need a replacement for that match; someone with charisma, ability and someone who knows to stay in their lane. And that someone is…

Charlotte comes to the stage while Becky is irate. She tosses her microphone and Vince introduces Charlotte, saying she will be the new Raw Women’s Champion after WrestleMania.

That’s it for this week’s Raw! Quite the ending right there. Let us know what you thought about that and be sure to come back tomorrow for more wrestling news and results. Until then, safe travels.
