Bengaluru, February 13: We were all set to finalize the lineup for the Elimination Chamber PPV on last night's WWE Monday Night Raw with a solid fatal-4-way main event match on the show hosted by the SAP Center in San Jose, California.
WWE Raw was kicked off with John Cena who was welcomed with loud jeers. He talked about heading into Wrestlemania by winning the Elimination Chamber match. He was quickly interrupted by The Miz who came out and bragged about how he will become the first-ever IC and Universal Champion, at the same time.
After this, John Cena challenged him to a match to prove who is better. Kurt Angle arrived to announce the match, officially. The match was ofcourse announced with a stipulation where the loser would have to be the first entrant in the Elimination Chamber match. Miz hit the Skull Crushing Finale but failed to pick up the win. Cena was quick to counter it with a super AA from the top rope to get the pinfall victory.
Bayley received a huge ovation from her home crowd before competing in the match against Sasha Banks. The latter one was on the verge of picking up a win with the Bank Statement locked in. But, Bayley reached the top rope and recovered from it by hitting the Bayley to belly to get the win. After the match, both Bayley and Sasha were ambushed by Nia Jax.
Later, Kurt Angle gave an update on his son Jason Jordan's neck injury. He said Jordan has undergone a surgery which is why he will be miss Wrestlemania. The crowd cheered the news as Seth Rollins made his way to demand a singles competition now that his tag partner is out of action. So, Angle included him in the main event match of the night making it a fatal-5-way.
Following this announcement, Roman Reigns shared a backstage segment with Seth Rollins, and they ran into The Bar. This set up a singles contest between Reigns and Sheamus. Cesaro was at ringside to add distraction but was neutralized with a superman punch. Reigns then connected with the spear in the mid-air to Sheamus to pick up the win.
The Revival attacked Gallows and Anderson from behind and won a tag team match on WWE Raw. Alexa Bliss and Mickie James teamed up in a match to get defeated by the Absolution after Mandy Rose hit the Bed of Roses. Braun Strowman continued to create a chaos by destroying Elias on WWE Raw.
The main event match turned out to be a fatal-5-way contest with the inclusion of Seth Rollins who dominated the match for the most part. The finish was confusing since both Rollins and Balor pinned Apollo Crews at the same time with powerbombs. We didn't get a genuine winner in the match which means the last spot at Elimination Chamber still remains vacant.
