WWE RAW REPORT: THE LAST MAN IN THE ELIMINATION CHAMBER IS DETERMINED, BAYLEY IN HER HOME TOWN, AND A CONTRACT SIGNING AT ELIMINATION CHAMBER

By Richard Trionfo on 2018-02-12 23:04:00

We are back and Kurt Angle is in the ring.

He says he is out here with mixed emotions.  Ronda Rousey will be signing her Monday Night Raw contract at the Elimination Chamber.  The other news is about his son.  Jason had an MRI and Jason had to undergo neck surgery.  As a result of the surgery, Jason will be out of Wrestlemania.

Kurt says he cannot come out here with a smile on his face any more.  He is here as a father.  If you get joy out of watching a superstar get injured and miss Wrestlemania, you should feel ashamed.  Jason might not be your favorite, but he wants everyone to give him best wishes for his recovery.

Seth Rollins comes out to the ring.

Seth tells Kurt he is sorry about Jason.  He was hard on him last week.  Jason is in a tough spot.  Seth says he knows the feeling.  He was the WWE Champion a few years ago.  He won the title a few miles up the street at Levi's Stadium.  He cashed in his briefcase, beat Roman Reigns and Brock Lesnar.  He shocked the world and he was on cloud nine.  It all came crumbling down.  He injured his knee, had to surrender the title, and miss Wrestlemania.  Seth says that missing Wrestlemania means making your Wrestlemania moment.  

Seth says he does not have a title or a briefcase and he does not even have a chance for the Elimination Chamber.

Kurt says that he will help Seth find a new partner, even though last week was his last chance.

Seth says thanks but no thanks.  Kurt told him he wanted to be a big piece of Raw, but Seth says he does not want to be a part of Raw.  He does not want to be a PART of Raw, he wants to BE Raw.  He wants to turn this show into Monday Night Rollins.  Seth says he wants to be the man one more time.  He wants Brock Lesnar and the Universal Championship.  He wants it at Wrestlemania.  The only way he can do that is if he wins the Elimination Chamber Match.

Kurt says he loves Seth's enthusiasm but he cannot cancel the match to qualify for the Elimination Chamber.  

Seth suggests turning the match into a Fatal Five Way and add him into the match.

Kurt says it is not fair to the other four wrestlers, the other four superstars.

Seth says he puts his body on the line for Raw and for Kurt.  It sucks that Jason misses his Wrestlemania moment, but Seth says he should not be able to miss out on his moment.  

Kurt says it is not up to him or Seth.  It is up to the people.  Kurt asks everyone if he should give Seth a chance to get into the Elimination Chamber.  Kurt gives Seth the match.

Bray Wyatt appears and he says now Seth Rollins has joined their game.  Seth does not deserve a second chance, much less the other three men.  Matt attacks him last week, but Matt calls him vile.  Matt is another sick man in need of help.  Bray says he knows how to fix Matt.  He says he knows who to fix them all.  They are just some fish lost in the see.  Bray says that he is starving and he will feast on their remains.  Bray says he will win the Elimination Chamber for the second year in a row and he will slay the Beast.  Then he will have the whole world in his hands.

Nia is asked about why did she interject herself into a moment that had nothing to do with her.  Nia says it is all about her.  Those two have brought Asuka to the limit, but she destroyed both of them in seconds.  At Elimination Chamber, there is only one woman who can break Asuka's streak . . . and you are looking at her.

Seth Rollins is in the back and Roman Reigns stops by.  Roman says that Seth worked his magic to make it a Fatal Five Way.  Seth says he isn't going to let Roman have all the fun.  Roman says he will be the one to eliminate Seth like he did at the Rumble.

Roman asks Cesaro about his mouth and he tells Sheamus he didn't get the memo but he will tonight.

We go to commercial.

Alexa Bliss is walking in the back and she stops to say hello to her partner.

Mickie tells Alexa to wait a second and she wants to know what is Alexa thinking by making the save.
