The 1289th edition of WWE Monday Night RAW came to you, live, from the Wells Fargo Arena at the Iowa Events Center in Des Moines, IA. As announced on last week’s RAW, there will be an Elimination Chamber Match in just under three weeks at WWE Elimination Chamber where six of RAW’s top Superstars will compete for the right to challenge Brock Lesnar for the Universal Championship at WrestleMania. In the first three Elimination Chamber Qualifying Matches, Braun Strowman decimated Kane in a Last Man Standing Match, Elias defeated “Woken” Matt Hardy, and John Cena defeated Finn Balor to fill up three of the six spots in the Elimination Chamber Match. Now, with the Elimination Chamber Qualifying Matches expected to continue this week, who will join Braun Strowman, Elias, and John Cena inside the unforgiving structure? Plus, it was also announced last week that Alexa Bliss will defend her RAW Women’s Title in the first ever Women’s Elimination Chamber Match. Will we find out who will be joining Alexa Bliss in the Elimination Chamber in less than three weeks?
