We are back and Kurt Angle makes his way to the ring.

Kurt says last Sunday, history was made with the first ever Royal Rumble match.  Kurt reminds us that Asuka was the winner.  On February 25th, the women will make history again.  Alexa Bliss will defend her title in the first Women's Elimination Chamber Match.

The first opponent is Bayley.  Next is Mandy Rose.  The third challenger is Mickie James.  The fourth challenger is Sonya Deville.  The final challenger is Sasha Banks.

Nia Jax will have a match at the Elimination Chamber.  She will face Asuka.  If Nia wins, the match at Wrestlemania will be a Triple Threat Match.

Alexa Bliss makes her way to the ring and she is not happy.

Alexa says this needs to stop now.  She tried to be a good sport about this.  This is not only wrong but unjust.  Alexa says your poor decision is against company policy.  The Women's Evolution means that the expectations of the men and women are the same. 

Kurt agrees.

Alexa brings up that the Women's title is on the line in the Elimination Chamber match, but the Men's title is not.  That means that Brock Lesnar gets to sit on the sidelines and watches to see who wins.  Alexa wonders why doesn't she get that privilege.   Is it because she is a woman?

Kurt says that Brock successfully defended his title at the Royal Rumble.  Kurt points out that the last time that Alexa defended the title was at TLC in December.

Alexa says that Kurt makes the matches.  She wants to know if Kurt values Brock Lesnar more than her.  Alexa says that is sexist.

Kurt says it never occurred to him to compare Alexa to Brock.  Kurt says that it seems like Alexa is trying to weasel out of this match.  Kurt says he will ask the crowd if they want to see Alexa defend the title in the Elimination Chamber.

Alexa says that she deserves respect.  Alexa leaves the ring.

John Cena says the Road to Wrestlemania is different for everyone.  How does one pave their Road to Wrestlemania.  You need a plan.  First qualify for Elimination Chamber.  Next, improve your odds by being the last one out.  He needs to beat the ghost of Eli Van Halen and the most destructive monster in the WWE.  How does he do that?  It is easy.

We have a video package for Asuka.

We go to commercial.

We are back with a Black History Month feature.

We are back and Miz comes to the ring with Bo Dallas.  

Miz reminds everyone to be quiet when his hand goes up.  He tells everyone to go outside and look at the sky because the constellation will look like this.  The stars have aligned to say what he has been saying since he came back.  This is the Year of the Miz.  Maybe you don't believe in astrology.  In his first match back, he regained the Intercontinental Title by defeating Roman Reigns at Raw 25.  It was the highest rated Raw in three years and there is one reason why . . . Him.  The next week, he defeated Roman Reigns again.  Roman is a world class athlete.  He is one of the best in the ring but he could not contend with the overwhelming tide of momentum that is ME.

Miz has a little insider information.  Before the Big Game, Doug Peterson showed the Eagles a video of his last match and it motivated them to win the Super Bowl.  Miz says that is the kind of inspiration he is.  The best is yet to come.  Tonight, he will qualify for the Elimination Chamber and face the right to meet the reigning, defending, undisputed Universal Champion.  At Wrestlemania, the cameras will be rolling for his show on USA Network, the world will be watching, and his daughter will be born in time to witness the first Intercontinental and Universal Champion . . . ME.
