This Valentine’s Day edition of WWE RAW comes to us a mere five days before the Elimination Chamber PPV in Saudi Arabia. As such, Brock Lesnar will be on hand to talk about the Elimination Chamber match, in which he faces Austin Theory, Seth Rollins, Riddle, AJ Styles, and the WWE Champion, Bobby Lashley. And speaking of AJ Styles, he could be walking into the Chamber as United States Champion if he can beat Damian Priest on tonight’s show.
Riddle, meanwhile, will be hosting an RK-Broga party in order to celebrate him and Randy Orton defeating Alpha Academy in the academic challenge. We suspect in Alpha Academy will be on hand to disrupt proceedings. And finally we know Hall of Famer Lita will be on tonight’s RAW to confront Becky Lynch once more before their showdown on Saturday.
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!
This week’s RAW from Indianapolis opens with the All Mighty WWE Champion, Bobby Lashley and MVP making their way to the ring.
Lashley says he has to win the most brutal match in WWE before he can walk into WrestleMania as the WWE Champion. He says the Elimination Chamber has changed lives and destroyed careers… but so has he. So many people have tried to stop and derail him but he’s destroyed all of them. MVP says Lashley has a 16% chance of winning the Elimination Chamber, which doesn’t sound great until you take one key factor into account: none of the other competitors are All Mighty. So Bobby has a 100% chance of winning.
Seth Rollins comes out laughing and says Lashley looks great but not as great as him. Rollins says the good news for Bobby is that nobody in the Chamber can beat him… except for him. MVP says he’s had a vision and he can see Rollins getting his ass beat if he doesn’t shut up. Riddle comes out wearing his toga and his hair braided. The fans chant “toga” and Riddle compares being inside the Elimination Chamber to being locked inside a smelly bathroom.
Riddle says it would be really cool if he became WWE Champion, and it would be even cooler if they all came to his Broga party later tonight. Maybe not Seth though, because he has to get ready for a match against Randy Orton tonight. Riddle says Lashley would look amazing in a toga and the fans start chanting. Austin Theory comes out and says Mr. McMahon has taught him to expect the unexpected, and that apologies are weaknesses. He’s going to apply those lessons inside the Chamber and win the Chamber match.
AJ Styles is out next and he says Theory’s lips have been on Vince’s ass so long he can’t speak sense. Styles says he’s been in the Elimination Chamber before and he knows nobody walks in with an advantage. Everyone comes out a changed man but that’s part of the game. Styles says nobody is going to stop him from having a defining WrestleMania moment. AJ praises Riddle’s toga and says he too could walk out of Elimination Chamber as a double Champion if he can beat Damian Priest tonight.
Riddle asks AJ to come to the Broga party but Lashley shuts him up. Lashley goes through each of them explaining why none of them can beat him and why he’s the only one deserving of walking into WrestleMania as Champion. Brock Lesnar’s music hits and out he comes with cowboy hat and sweater. Lesnar circles the ring, then gets inside and takes the sweater and hat and places them on Theory like he’s a hat rack. Theory jumps on Brock’s back as he stares at Lashley but quickly gets German suplexed. The ring clears and Brock is left alone with Theory, who he plants him with an F5. Brock takes a selfie with Theory.
Former NXT Champion, Tommaso Ciampa, is on commentary for this match after he brawled with Dolph Ziggler on last week’s NXT. Ford begins with Ziggler and starts hot but Roode tags in and catches Ford with a spinning Rock Bottom for a two-count. Ziggler tags back in and Roode throws him up so he can drop a knee on Montez. Ford drops Ziggler with a dropkick and both men are down.
Dawkins and Roode get the tags and Angelo lands some lariats and a spinning back elbow. Dolph comes back in and Dawkins slams him, but Roode then catches him with a spinebuster. On the outside, Ciampa mocks Ziggler with fake applause. Dolph goes for a superkick but Ciampa throws water in his face. Meanwhile in the ring, Dawkins slams Roode and Ford hits From The Heavens for the win.
On the outside, Ziggler does superkick Ciampa but Ford and Dawkins get him back in the ring. They look to double-team him but Ziggler escapes and laughs on the ramp with Roode.
Riddle is backstage with a bunch of other Superstars, who are all wearing toga’s. He asks where Orton is but Zelina Vega says who cares, this is a party for her. Riddle says it’s for RK-Bro and starts a Bro-ga chant. Orton is shown watching the shenanigans on a monitor. Kevin Patrick appears and asks him why he isn’t celebrating and Orton says he’s not much of a toga guy. Orton says he’s more focused on Seth Rollins, who he knows will have some sort of scheme to win the Elimination Chamber on Saturday but before that happens, he’s going to him with the three most devastating letters in WWE…R..K..O.
To celebrate Black History Month we get a video package celebrating the life and career of WWE Hall of Famer, Rocky Johnson. The video is narrated by his son, The Rock.
Kevin Owens cut a promo earlier today and says he’s a realist, so he knows he probably won’t get to WrestleMania this year. Last week he had great things to say about Texas but the Texans started trashing him on Twitter. Well he was lying last week but he’s not lying now: he hates Texas. He’s from Quebec, Canada, a place populated with intelligent, sophisticated people, the opposite of Texas. If North America was the human body, Texas would be the ass.
The match gets underway and Priest takes Styles down with a wristlock. Styles fights back but Priest wallops him with right hands, backing him into the corner. Priest shoves AJ to the ropes and catches him with a backbreaker. Styles fights out of a rear chinlock and knocks Priest down. AJ wants the Styles Clash but Priest escapes and hits a dominator for a two-count.
AJ clotheslines Priest over the ropes to the floor, then jumps to the apron but Priest swipes his feet. Priest wants to Chokeslam AJ on the apron but Styles lands on his feet, swings a kick but Priest avoids it and swipes his feet again. Priest gets back inside and tries to kick AJ off the apron but gets his foot caught on the top rope. Styles knocks him back and wants a Phenomenal Forearm but Priest avoids it and hits a sunset flip for the win.
We’re back with Alexa Bliss and her therapist. He asks her if she’s feeling better and she says yes. Life is good for the first time in a long time. She’s happy. He says he thinks she’s earned a gift and asks what she wants. She says she wants the music to stop. He stops the music, then pulls out the ripped Lilly doll that Charlotte tore apart. He says he’s giving this to her so she can be at peace. Bliss takes a deep breath and smiles at him. He then pulls out an intact Lilly and says he has an idea.
Alexander tries to rush Omos from behind but gets grabbed and shoved into the corner. Shelton is tagged in and Cedric grabs Omos’s feet to distract him, allowing Shelton to land some right hands. Omos shrugs them off and knocks Benjamin down, then grabs Cedric by the throat and throws him with a choke bomb to score the quick win.
We see Dana Brooke and friendzoned Reggie in a restaunts together for Valentine’s Day. In the background we see Akira Tozawa and Tamina sneak into the restaurant. To be continued.
The RK-Bro-ga party is raging backstage and the Street Profits join proceedings to play some beer pong.
Adam Pearce is in the ring for a contract signing between Hall of Famer Lita and the RAW Women’s Champion, Becky Lynch. Pearce introduces Lita first, then Lynch comes out looking distracted and a little dishevelled. Becky asks Lita not to sign the contract. She says she hasn’t slept in a week, thinking her teenage idol assaulted her and is trying to steal everything from her. She’ll let all that slide if Lita tears up the contract. She says Lita had a great career, what does she have to prove? Neither of them have anything to gain from this.
Lita asks the fans if they think she should tear the contract up and they boo. She ask if she should sign it and shut Becky up and they cheer. Lita says she didn’t come back because she has one good match left in her, she has one of hell of a Championship run in her. Becky doesn’t have to like this but the match is happening. Lita signs the contract and Becky says she’s pushing her to a point she can’t come back from.
Lynch says she’s studied Lita more than anyone, knows all her weaknesses, and she’ll go right for her neck. People remember with a smile on their face, but by the time she’s done they’ll think of her with a tear in their eye. Becky signs the contract and Lita says Becky claims there would be no Big Time Becks without Lita. So if she had a hand in creating this mess, she owes it to everyone to end it. And become a 5x Champion in the process. Becky throws the contract at Lita, then walks off.
A women’s Elimination Chamber match has been announced for the PPV on Saturday. The participants include Liv Morgan, Rhea Ripley, Bianca Belair, Doudrop, and Nikki A.S.H, with the final entrant yet unknown. The winner of this match will face the RAW Women’s Champion at WrestleMania.
