Hello and welcome to WWE Raw Live Results!
I’m your host, CP Bialois, and we’re gearing up for what we hope will be a fun night as Drew McIntyre is slated to face Randy Orton in a non-title match, and Charlotte Flair will take on Lacey Evans.
WWE Raw Live Results expect plenty of twists and turns as the Road to WrestleMania heats up with the pay-per-view just nine weeks away.
We’re going to grab some snacks and meet back here at the 8 p.m. EST showtime.
Adam Pearce and Shane McMahon came out and announced that Drew McIntyre will defend his WWE Championship in the Elimination Chamber.
His opponents will be AJ Styles, Jeff Hardy, Randy Orton, The Miz, and Sheamus.
AJ Styles w/Omos vs. Jeff Hardy
Jeff started off dominating the match, but then injured hit left leg after leaping over Styles and Styles went to work on it outside the ring as we headed to commercial.
This was a great match and effort by Jeff Hardy, but Styles eventually won by submission after locking in a second calf crusher.
The New Day (Kofi Kingston and Xavier Woods) vs. Retribution (T-Bar and Slapjack) w/Mace and Mustafa Ali
This started as a good back and forth with the New Day relaying on their speed and teamwork, sending T-Bar and Slapjack to the floor as we headed to commercial.
This was a fun match the New Day eventually won by hitting a Day Break on Slapjack for Kingston to score the pinfall victory.
Lacey Evans, Ric Flair, and Charlotte Flair had a fun exchange where Evans tried to tell Charlotte she only wants to learn and work with her.
Charlotte would have none of it and challenged Evans to a match right there. Evans blindsided her and said she accepts.
So a match that was previously promoted for tonight was just challenged and accepted?
Lacey Evans w/Ric Flair vs. Charlotte Flair
This match started off with Flair nursing a injured shoulder over the last couple of weeks and Evans targeting it.
Ric got between them when Charlotte tried to leap over the top rope, and Evans slammed her face first on the apron as we headed to commercial.
This was a good match that ended when Charlotte blew her top and hammered away on Evans, even shoving the referee away to get disqualified while doing so.
Since Evans stated before the match that if she won she gets a shot at the Raw Women’s Championship, we guess she’ll have her match at Elimination Chamber now?
Edge came out to say he’s going to wait until after the Elimination Chamber to announce who he’ll challenge at WrestleMania and The Miz came out and told him his entire plan.
Edge pointed out he’s playing high stakes poker while Miz wants to be awesome, and added he did that 20 years ago and now he needs to win the championship.
Angel Garza w/The Miz and John Morrison vs. Damien Priest w/Bad Bunny
This was more of a mosh up as Miz and Morrison interfered before Bad Bunny tricked Morrison into the ring with the MITB briefcase to get them barred from ringside.
Priest then hit the Reckoning for the win.
Riddle vs. Keith Lee
A good match ended when Lee hit a Spirit Bomb, but the real news was MVP was with the commentary team.
After the match, Bobby Lashley took out Lee and Riddle with little trouble, setting up his and Lee’s upcoming feud.
Randy Orton cut a promo about there being unfinished business between he and Orton and he promised he’ll be heading to WrestleMania as the WWE Champion.
Tables Match – Nia Jax w/Shayna Baszler vs. Lana w/Naomi
Jax dominated throughout but hurt her tailbone when she missed a leg drop on the apron. Lana shoved her into and through a table propped against the barricade to win the match.
Shayna Baszler vs. Naomi
Baszler had it won, but she chose to abuse Lana outside the ring and Naomi rolled her up for the win when she climbed back in the ring.
Drew McIntyre vs. Randy Orton
This started off as a typical back and forth until Sheamus ran out to distract McIntyre.
Orton slammed McIntyre into one ring post and then another as we headed to commercial.
This was a pretty good match that ended in a disqualification win for Orton as he shoved McIntyre out of the way of a Brogue Kick by Sheamus.
McIntyre then hit Sheamus with a Claymore to repay the shot he took last week and then stood tall in the center of the ring.
This was a pretty good show and far better than what we’ve become accustomed to seeing, and it gives us hope things will pick up in the coming weeks.
The announcement for the Elimination Chamber match is the best match the WWE can put together and we can’t wait to see how it plays out heading into that pay-per-view.
