Welcome back for another episode of Monday Night RAW, and what’s in store for us? Well Riddle is facing Seth Rollins in a random one-on-one match, then partaking in a quiz bowl with Randy Orton against Alpha Academy. If they win, RK-Bro will get a title shot against Alpha Aceademy at Elimination Chamber in two weeks.
Elsewhere tonight, Lita returns to RAW to hype-up her RAW Women’s Championship match against Becky Lynch in Saudi Arabia. It’s unclear if Lita will stick with WWE through WrestleMania or if this will be her last bout, so we’re going to appreciate her while she’s here. And that’s all we know about tonight’s RAW, although we expect more from Bobby Lashley, Kevin Owens, Damian Priest, etc.
And that’s the preview for tonight’s RAW. Our live coverage will begin from 8PM right here. Let us know if you’re excited about any of it and remember to hit the refresh link below and enjoy the show!
Monay Night RAW is live and we’re heading straight into the third and final round of the academic challenge between RK-Bro and Alpha Academy. The two teams will compete in a quiz bowl, and if RK-Bro can win they earn a Tag Team Title shot at Elimination Chamber.
All four men are in the ring and Kevin Patrick will once again play mediator. Patrick welcomes us and introduces the participants. Gable shushes Patrick and explains the rules to the “mouth-breather” fans in Denver. There are a variety of categories they can choose from and Alpha Academy go first, with Chad Gable going first and getting his question right. Riddle goes next and correctly answers a question about octopuses. Gable goes again is bored by how easy the questions.
Randy Orton suggests they pick cartoons next, and Riddle correctly answers a question about the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Gable complains that the question was dumb but Randy shuts him up and tells him to let Otis answer a question. Otis chooses geography and gets it right, then Orton gets a question wrong about Hailey Baldwin. Gable is then able to steal the answer from RK-Bro and gets it right, giving Alpha Academy a 4-2 lead. If they get the next question right they win the whole academic challenge.
Gable chooses film & literature and is asked which Shakespeare play has been adapted more than any other into film. Otis knows the answer but Gable won’t listen to him and gets it wrong. RK-Bro get the chance to steal and Riddle gets it right with ‘Hamlet’. RK-Bro need to get the next answer right. They choose sports and get asked about Denver Bronco’s quarterbacks, so Orton asks the crowd and they help them get the answer right.
Alpha Academy have the opportunity to win and Gable chooses metric conversions as the questions. He’s asked how many grams are in an ounce and he gets it wrong, allowing Riddle to steal because he knows what a gram is. RK-Bro have won the academic challenge and a RAW Tag Team Champonship rematch. RK-Bro leave and somebody keeps buzzing the wrong answer button, which causes Gable to have heart palpatations and roll around on the mat.
The Street Profits come out and make fun of Alpha Academy. Chad Gable is furious and gets out of the ring to confront them on the ramp. He says they’re about to get their asses kicked. The Profits want the smoke and that match is coming up next.
The bell rings and Ford sprints across the ring to dropkick Otis off the apron. Gable tries to German suplex Ford but he lands on his feet and clotheslines him. Ford tags Dawkins and they double-team Gable. Dawkins and Gable exchange reversals and leap over each other a few times, then Ford tags back in and wants a springboard but Otis knocks him off the apron.
Otis tags in and drops Ford with a clothesline, then scoo slams him. Otis splashes Ford and poses to the boos of the Denver crowd. Otis clubs Ford in the gut, hits a snapmare and grabs a chinlock. Ford fights up and Otis backs him into the corner, then looks for a shoulder tackle but Ford avoids it and Otis hits the post. Dawkins tags in alongside Gable and hits a spinning elbow. Dawkins with an exploder suplex and a splash in the corner, but Gable then catches him with a belly-to-belly for a two-count.
Gable goes to the top rope and looks for a moonsault but Dawkins moves and Gable lands on his feet. Dawkins hits a spinning underhook neckbreaker but Otis breaks the pin attempt. Ford kicks Otis and sends him out of the ring, then hits a Superman tope. Dawkins rolls-up Gable for a near-fall, then attempts the neckbreaker again but Gable counters with an ankle lock. Dawkins tries to roll out but Gable sits down and pins him for the win!
We see a highlight reel of Lita’s incredible, trail-blazing, Hall of Fame career. Lita will be on RAW tonight to confront Becky Lynch.
MVP is in the ring and he introduces the hometown boy, the All Mighty WWE Champion, Bobby Lashley. MVP says Lashley slayed the beast and took back his WWE Championship. We should have had a parade last week, we should have declared it Bobby Lashley day. But what they actually got was Adam Pearce telling Lashley he’d have to defend his title inside Elimination Chamber. Which brings the back to Brock Lesnar who won the Royal Rumble.
Brock is going to face Roman Reigns at WrestleMania but before that he’s in the Elimination Chamber, alongside other greats like Seth Rollins, Riddle, AJ Styles and Austin Theory. But they’re men. Bobby Lashley and Brock Lesnar are giants. Monsters. And Lashley is the biggest monster of them all. Lashley says Brock tried to demand a rematch from him but nobody demands anything from him. Especially from someone like Brock Lesnar, who doesn’t deserve anything. When was the last time Brock even had a match on RAW?
Bobby hopes it comes down to the two of them because he wants to pin Brock once more. And he won’t be locked inside the Chamber with Brock, Brock will be locked in there with him. The fans chant for Lashley. He says Brock will wake up in hopsital and shakes at the mere mention of his name. Lesnar can go challenge for the Universal Championship but he’ll be defending the WWE Championship in the main event of WrestleMania.
Alexa Bliss is still with her therapist and holding a replica of Lilly – her attire is even more toned down this week. The therapist says she’s doing great but it’s time to give the doll back and move to the next stage. Bliss gives it back but starts crying.
The match gets underway and Styles lands a few chops to the chest but Priest drops him with a wheel kick. Styles sends Priest to the outside and hits a flying forearm over the ropes. Styles gets Priest back inside and grabs a sleeper but Damian runs him into the buckles to break it. Priest throws AJ, then aplshes him in the corner. Styles counters a falcon arrow but eats a lariat. Priest looks for The Reckoning but AJ counters.
Styles can’t land the Styles Clash, then ducks a kick and hits Ushigoroshi for a near-fall. Styles attempts a reverse DDT but Priest gets free and hits a leg lariat. Both men trade forearms and kicks in the centre of the ring until Styles clocks him with a Pele kick but Priest lands on him and scores a near-fall. Styles is sent to the apron and he wants the Phenomenal Forearm but Priest hits him in mid-air. Priest lands a few shots and hits the roeps but Styles catches him with the Phenomenal Forearm for the win!
We see highlights from Friday Night SmackDown, where Goldberg returned to confront Roman Reigns, and Ronda Rousey challenged Charlotte to a match at WrestleMania.
Seth Rollins and Kevin Owens are backstage and Seth is in a good mood. He says he knows Owens is ready for his match against Theory tonight but he’s disappointed he’s not in the Elimination Chamber. KO says he never did like Adam Pearce but it’s fine. With Seth’s influence and his determination, he can get added to the Chamber match if he beats Theory tonight. Rollins loves it and says he has his back, to which Owens asks if Seth is lying. Rollins says he’s a lot of things but he’d not a liar.
The Miz and Maryse come to the ring for the latest instalment of Miz TV. Miz tells the fans to applaud his wife for her performance at Royal Rumble, and they boo. Miz then introduces his two guests: Rey and Dominik Mysterio. Miz says they must be wondering why he invited them on but he wants to clear the air about what happened last week. We see a clip of Miz cheating to beat Dominik, then Miz says he sees nothing wrong with what he did.
Rey says Miz used underhanded tactics to beat his son. Miz gets offended and says he is not a cheater. Miz says if they want to see cheating they should watch how Beth Phoenix attacked him at the Royal Rumble. Why are guys like Eddie Guerrero celebrated and cheered for cheating but he’s booed? Miz tells Dominik he should know better when he’s in the ring with him. Miz says he was cheated out of being in the Elimination Chamber match but Rey Mysterio got the opportunity.
The Miz rhymes off his accomplishments and Rey points out that he cheated each time. The Miz says he’s a two-time grand slam Champion and he should be on the face of everything but he’s not. You know who is? Rey Mysterio. He’s on the cover of WWE 2K22. Why not Maryse? Maryse says Rey could learn a thing or two from her. Rey says he’s good. Miz asks where his respect is.
Dominik gets p and says he should show his father some respect. Miz says Rey is hiding behind his son and challenges Dominik to a rematch, which he accepts. Miz then says Dominik is a lot taller than Rey and asks if he’s sure he’s not Eddie’s son? Rey gets fired-up but Dominik holds him back. Miz poses until Dominik shoves him backwards and he falls over some chairs and rolls out of the ring. This match is after the break.
Dominik knocks Miz into the corner and poses to mock him. Miz runs at Dom but gets caught with a drop-toe-hold and lands on the middle rope. Dominik wants the 619 but Maryse swipes his feet.

Nikki sends Belair to the corner and runs for a tackle but Belair avoids it by jumping to the apron. Belair kicks her, then gets back inside and hits the Kiss of Death for the win.
R-Truth, Tamina and Akira Tozawa are running around backstage, looking for Reggie and Dana Brooke. The two of them appear once they’re gone. Dana tahnks Reggie for his help and says he’s made her a better Champion. She kisses him on the cheek. Reggie asks her what that means and Dana says they’re “really good friends”. The two of them hug but then get chased off by Truth and co.
Owens attacks Theory right as the bell rings. Theory snaps Owens on the ropes, then hits a rolling dropkick through the ropes for a two-count. Theory backs Owens into the corner and stomps him down. Theory whips Owens hard into the buckles, then lands some ground-and-pound. Owens fights back but misses a shoulder tackle in the corner and hits the post.

Riddle says he’s right, then says he’s planning a toga party for next week’s RAW.
WWE Hall of Famer, Lita, comes to the ring and we see a replay of her confrontation with Becky Lynch last week. Lita says a few weeks ago she wouldn’t have guessed she’d be here. But when she was in the Royal Rumble she felt like she was home. She saw the likes of Charlotte Flair, Rhea Ripley, and Bianca Belair and she got excited. However there was one woman that was missing, a woman who she’s wanted to get in the ring with for a long time.
Becky Lynch comes out to interrupt Lita. Becky says it’s one thing for her to come out here and prove she’s the G.O.A.T week after week, but it’s a whole different thing to hear it from your teenage idol. Becky says she’d like to explain why she said no last week. Growing up she worshipped Lita, who poved what women could do in WWE. When Becky got to WWE a lot of people turned their noses up but Lita never did. She helped her more than anyone.
There would be no Becky Lynch without Lita. But now that there is a Becky Lynch, there can be no Lita. Does she have any idea how hurtful it is to have the one person you looked up to more than anyone, try to take everything you’ve ever worked for? She’s had to get rid of friends. No problem. She’s had to get rid of friends. No problem. And now she’ll have to get rid of Lita. No problem. She’s at the peak of her career and Lita may have helped her up but she won’t have any problem putting her down.
Lita says Becky’s right, she’s on the top of her game and she definitely the favourite. She’s always been an underdog. A punk-rock, dumpster-diving kid who went out to achieve her dreams. The fans helped her do that by chanting her name from day one. Lita says she hasn’t had a title shot in fifteen years but the WWE Universe still supports her. She likes her odds but what Becky will have to come to grips with, is losing that title.
Lynch shakes her head angrily and says Lita will need all the luck she can get. Becky feigns walking off but then attacks Lita and beats her down. Becky holds the title up but then goes back and tries to hit a Manhandle Slam…only to get caught with a Twist of Fate! Lita goes to the top rope and hits a moonsault off the top! Lita leaves as Becky stares on from the floor.
Kevin Owens interrupts Sonya Deville and Adam Pearce and asks if he has earned a spot in the Elimination Chamber after beating Theory. They say no. Owens says they can’t do that, he’s a good guy. They’re depriving the WWE Universe of him main eventing WrestleMania with his best friend. Sonya says their decision is final and Owens may not even be at WrestleMania. Owens says they can’t do that. If they do their will be a riot in Texas. He won his Universal Championship there, the Intercontinental Championship there, his first WrestleMania was there. He needs it and so do the fans. Deville and Pearce say nothing.
Liv Morgan makes her way to the ring andwe see a split-screen promo from her, in which she says her goal for 2022 is to become RAW Women’s Champion. Doudrop is out second and she says she’ll be the Champion because she can squash every other woman in the division, and she’ll prove that tonight.

Doudrop puts Liv on the top rope, then yanks her off by the leg and Liv hits the buckles on her way down. Doudrop goes to the middle rope and hits a Vader bomb for the win.
We’re back with Alea Bliss and her therapist. He says Bliss cried when she gave Lilly back but she didn’t act out. That’s some positive progress. He asks if Alexa has had any issues during the week. She says someone cut her off on the highway but she took a deep breath and moved on. Then, at the mall the same thing happened in the parking lot and she got out to confront the person but took a deep breath and stopped herself. Then, at the grocery store she waited in line for thirty minutes only for an evil woman to cut in. She describes the woman as looking like Lilly and says she beat the crap out of her, but then she took a deep breath and relaxed. The therapist says they still have work to do.
Seth Rollins is interviewed backstage about Elimination Chamber and he says his opponent are good but they’re not him. He’s done everything… except main event WrestleMania. Well this is his year. He doesn’t care who it’s against because it’s his spot. Rollins makes his entrance for the main event.
