Valentine’s Day edition of Raw (Feb 14) had everything we need, besides love. However, we saw Seth vs. Orton, a women’s gauntlet match, Tommaso Ciampa, and Brock clearing the ring.
Raw Feb 14
For the first time since 2015, Seth “Freakin” Rollins and Randy Orton go head-to-head in the exciting Raw Main Event. Plus, Brock Lesnar gives Austin Theory a thunderous F-5. Bianca Belair earns the final right to the upcoming Elimination Chamber match by winning a grueling Gauntlet Match, and more!
Brock Lesnar took out Austin Theory with a thunderous F-5
WWE Champion Bobby Lashley and the MVP made Raw’s final statement ahead of Saturday’s knockout bout, which quickly sparked a conspiracy of Lashley’s imminent challenger. First, Seth “Freakin” Rollins showed up to remind Lashley that he had been The Beastslayer before and that he would have no problem playing the role again. Then, a robe-clad Riddle tries to get The Allmighty to his RK-Broga party. Austin Theory and AJ Styles felt their presence before Brock Lesnar finally arrived trying to end the madness. Just when the Almighty and the Beast seemed to be fighting again, Theory tried to jump off Lesnar from behind. The young superstar got a thunderous F-5 for his troubles, and Lesnar put an exclamation point on all the action with an incredible selfie.
The Street Profits def. Dolph Ziggler & Robert Roode
Thanks to Dolph Ziggler’s recent appearance on NXT 2.0, former NXT Champion Tommaso Ciampa took a front-row seat at the Raw announcement table. Meanwhile, Street Profits wanted all the smoke from Ziggler and Robert Roode as usual, and when Ziggler found himself face-to-face with Ciampa at the circus, Ciampa splashed some water in The Showoff’s face. Angelo Dawkins and Montez Ford took their chances in the ring, and Ford nailed Roode to the ring with an awesome Frog Splash to win for profit.
Raw Women’s Champion Becky Lynch and Lita signed the contract for their match at WWE Elimination Chamber
The final confrontation between Raw Women’s Champion Becky Lynch and Lita before the WWE Elimination Chamber came in the form of a signing, which meant some heated words would be spat back and forth between these upcoming rivals. A frustrated Big Time Becks explained that her goal was to end Lita this Saturday, with the WWE Hall of Famer countering that the only ending would be Lynch’s reign as the Raw Women’s Champion.

Seth “Freakin” Rollins def. Randy Orton
Seth “Freak” Rollins will have to beat 14-time World Champion Randy Orton in order to get a big win before the WWE Championship knockout rounds. The back-and-forth between the two men is exhilarating and climaxing when the Alpha Academy shows up to spoil Night of the Viper. Riddle rushed out to help his partner, but Rollins took advantage of the distraction and connected with a Stomp to beat Orton and make a big statement five days before stepping into the Elimination Chamber.
