*OFFICIAL* Raw Discussion Thread: 5th February 2018

Quote from: WWE.com
Last week, three hard-hitting Qualifying Matches determined that Braun Strowman, Elias and John Cena would compete in the Men’s Elimination Chamber Match on Sunday, Feb. 25, with the winner of that hellacious bout going on to challenge Brock Lesnar for the Universal Championship at The Showcase of the Immortals, WrestleMania.

However, there are three slots left in the match, and WWE.com can now confirm that Roman Reigns and Bray Wyatt will clash one-on-one on Raw for the right to enter the structure, where WrestleMania glory will be on the line.

The Elimination Chamber Match is a grueling test of endurance, both physically and psychologically, as four Superstars — encased in pods — await their chance to enter the fray and battle the competition inside the structure.

Naturally, the bout’s final entrant has a clear advantage, getting the opportunity to take advantage of their foes’ fatigue. Tonight, the three Superstars who qualified for the Men’s Elimination Chamber Match will collide in a Triple Threat Match to determine who will be the perilous contest’s final entrant, thereby getting the best opportunity to emerge victorious and challenge Brock Lesnar for the Universal Championship at WrestleMania. Will Braun Strowman, Elias or John Cena earn that honor?

After Jason Jordan’s injury transformed Royal Rumble’s Raw Tag Team Championship bout into a glorified 2-on-1 Handicap Match, Cesaro & Sheamus defeated Seth Rollins and the “gold-blooded” son of Kurt Angle to become four-time champions.

Tonight on Raw, Rollins & Jordan will have an opportunity to reclaim those titles when they face The Bar in a Raw Tag Team Championship rematch. Can Jordan find redemption alongside The Kingslayer?

One week after Sasha Banks was taken to the limit and defeated by the seemingly unbeatable Asuka, The Boss’ best friend Bayley will attempt to give The Empress of Tomorrow her first loss tonight on Raw.

Can The Huggable One succeed where Sasha failed, or is Bayley—like so many Superstars before —simply not ready for Asuka?

Asuka defeated Sasha Banks in an incredible matchup last Monday night. And while the entire WWE Universe awaits the 2018 Women’s Royal Rumble Match winner’s decision as to which title she will challenge for at WrestleMania, the Raw Women’s division shifts its focus to Sunday, Feb. 25, when the first Women’s Elimination Chamber Match in history is waged for the Raw Women’s Championship.

We already know that Little Miss Bliss will be entering the formidable structure to defend her prize, but who else is going in? Look for female Superstars to be confirmed tonight for this anticipated and history-making match.

With a little help from his co-stars, The Miztourage, The Miz defeated Roman Reigns in their Intercontinental Title rematch this past Monday night on Raw. This brings The A-Lister that much closer to walking under the bright lights of WrestleMania with Team Red’s workhorse championship around his waist.

Now that The Big Dog has been turned back, will we see a new challenger step up to the “must-see” Intercontinental Champion? We’ll find out on Raw.

Injuries have plagued The Revival since their debut on Raw last year, but Scott Dawson & Dash Wilder finally seem to be clicking like the “old-school” teams they emulate, picking up back-to-back victories over Luke Gallows & Karl Anderson and Heath Slater & Rhyno on the Royal Rumble Kickoff and Raw, respectively.

Who will get a wrestling history lesson from these throwbacks this week?

Don’t miss Raw, tonight!
