One of the longest matches in RAW history had finally come to an end, with the monster amongst men standing tall atop a mountain of bodies. That was the question that the Empress of Tomorrow had to ask herself, as she found herself blindsided by her Elimination Chamber opponent Nia Jax, as the Irresistible Force ambushed the undefeated challenger. It'll be most interesting to see how Seth Rollins and Braun Strowman get pinned since neither one has a clear WrestleMania direction. While Asuka did go down fighting, it seemed as if all her offense had zero effect on her foe, whose sheer power and deadly Samoan Drop finisher saw Asuka destroyed within the ring.
Finalists to host 2019, 2020 NFL Draft announced
Cities will present their proposals and final selections will be made at the NFL Spring Meetings in Atlanta this coming May. The NFL has narrowed to five the list of markets in the running to host the league's drafts in 2019 and 2020.
There was, however, time for two more matches, with Raw tag team champions The Bar taking on the Titus Worldwide team of Apollo Crews and Titus O'Neill, backed up as always by the statistics-providing Dana Brooke.
Absolution, thy time has come.
As noted earlier, a Gauntlet Match featuring the seven Superstars who will compete in the Men's Elimination Chamber Match is also set for Raw, featuring John Cena, Roman Reigns, Braun Strowman, Seth Rollins, Finn Balor, Elias, and Intercontinental Champion The Miz. Given the tension between Sasha Banks and Bayley following their match last week as well as this odd, uneasy alliance between Alexa Bliss and Mickie James, can both of these teams stay on the same page? A budding feud between Sasha Banks and Bayley could mean that one of them will win the belt Sunday and be challenged by the other at WrestleMania.
