Six nights before WWE Elimination Chamber, the 1291st edition of WWE Monday Night RAW came to you, live, from the Talking Stick Resort Arena in Phoenix, AZ. Seven of the best wrestlers in the entire company will compete to determine the main event of the year's biggest show, and Ronda Rousey will make an appearance to officially become a member of the WWE roster. But in the end, it was Braun Strowman who triumphed and as he does - left a serious mark.
John Cena vs. Roman Reigns vs. Elias capitalized on Rollins' injured knee, and pinned him after Drift Away. Strowman then called out Universal Champion Brock Lesnar and promised he would win the Elimination Chamber Match to meet The Beast at WrestleMania.
The Miz, despite his best efforts against The Monster Among Men, was no match for the towering giant and was defeated with a Running Powerslam. Finn Balor followed up and attacked Elias' battered ribs and finished off the job with a Coup de Grace. Eventually the interference was too much, and Bálor was pinned after the Skull-crushing Finale. The Gift of Destruction began by chasing down the Intercontinental Champion as he scrambled for cover.
The seven stars who are part of the Elimination Chamber match seemingly drew numbers ahead of Raw and it was Roman Reigns and Seth Rollins who were the first two, before John Cena, Elias, Finn Balor, The Miz and Braun Strowman later made their way to the ring, after the stars who entered before them were eliminated.
