In one of the rare occasions, WWE has announced almost the complete line-up for RAW this week. Brock Lesnar is appearing again to build-up the WrestleMania match against Drew McIntyre. RAW Tag Team Championship will be defended in a rematch from Super ShowDown. This is also the go-home edition of WWE Elimination Chamber 2020. So, a few matches are expected to be announced.
Is Drew McIntyre Ready for Brock Lesnar?
The commentary team runs through tonight’s line-up to open the show. Asuka vs Shayna Baszler is now changed to Kairi Sane vs Shayna Baszler. Brock Lesnar comes out with Paul Heyman. They march into the ring and Heyman does their usual introduction. Heyman says he can’t hype us about WrestleMania. The line-up for WrestleMania is the saddest one and the main event is a sham. The crowd starts booing.
Heyman mentions Drew McIntyre and says he is the height of fraud. He then recalls how Lesnar massacred 15 top WWE guys in the Royal Rumble match, only to be robbed by Ricochet and McIntyre. He agrees that McIntyre eliminated Lesnar in Royal Rumble but that does not mean that he can pin or submit Lesnar at WrestleMania. It’s already over for McIntyre as he is stupid to choose Lesnar for WrestleMania.
McIntyre’s music hits and he comes out, heading straight into the ring while staring Lesnar. They stand face to face in the ring. The crowd get excited but Lesnar side steps. He teases going back but was actually trying to catch McIntyre off-guard. McIntyre was ready and blasts him with the Claymore. McIntyre leaves the ring as the crowd cheers.
Lesnar is down as Heyman checks on him, shocked!! “You deserve it!” chants start. Lesnar gets up slowly but still looks jaded by that Claymore. Heyman is behaving as if Lesnar has already lost the title. Lesnar reaches the ramp with his attention still on the crowd’s boos. McIntyre comes from behind again to hit another Claymore kick. McIntyre takes the title away from Lesnar and waits for him to get up. Another Claymore and Lesnar does not get up this time.
Seth Rollins & Murphy vs Street Profits- WWE RAW Tag Team Championship
Street Profits makes their way to the ring for their match against RAW Tag Team champs. They take the mic in the ring and hypes the crowd. Ford tells us that it is their final opportunity to win RAW Tag titles. They hype the match some more as the crowd chants “We want Smoke.” Seth Rollins and Murphy enters to Rollins’ music. AOP escorts them to the ramp only. Rollins kisses hands of a few fans in the front row as they enter the ring.
As the announcements get done, Rollins and Murphy tries to jump on Profits. But Ford and Dawkins gets the upper hand to throw them out of the ring. Ford jumps on them but they catch him and send him into the barricade. We go to break.
The match continues on the next page!!
