WWE RAW RESULTS AND LIVE BLOG FOR FEB. 14
Plug me in I’m alive tonight, out on the streets again. Turn me on, I’m too hot to stop, something you’ll never forget. Take my fist, break down walls, I’m on top tonight and I’m liveblogging this here pro wrestling show for you, folks.
The show opens with Bobby Lashley making his entrance, flanked by Montel Vontavious Porter as usual.
Bob gets on the mic and talks about Elimination Chamber, acknowledging that it’s changed lives and careers, but so has he. MVP concurs and says he’s done some calculations and figured out that the WWE Champion has a 1-in-6 chance of winning the Elimination Chamber, which doesn’t sound very good, until you factor in one very important variable.
None of the men in the Chamber are All Mighty, so when you factor that in, that gives Lashley a 100% chance of walking out of Elimination Chamber the same way he walks in, as WWE Champion.
Enter Seth Rollins.
He tells Bob he looks great but bad news, not as great as he does, in his shiny snakeskin print suit. But hey, good news, he’s WWE Champion, bad news, not for very long. But, good news, none of the other men in the Chamber stand a chance at beating Bob. Bad news, he knows somebody who can, and that’s himself.
MVP says he’s had a vision that if Seth keeps running his mouth he’s not gonna make it to Elimination Chamber.
Enter Matt Riddle, wearing a toga because reasons.
He gets on the mic and asks if Seth is saying the Chamber is like one giant quiz bowl, and Rollins says he made no such reference. Matt rambles about getting locked in a gas station bathroom and somehow turns it into a statement of confidence in his victory in the Chamber.
He invites everybody to his RK-BROga party tonight, except for Seth, because he needs to get ready for his match against Randy Orton.
Enter Austin Theory.
He says Mr. McMahon has taught him a lot of lessons about expecting the unexpected and talks about how that gives him such motivation that he HAS to win the Elimination Chamber.
Enter AJ Styles.
He says Theory’s lips have been on Vince McMahon’s ass so long he’s not making sense anymore, and nobody has to worry about Austin in the Chamber, they have to worry about him, and he intends to win the WWE Championship once again. And hey, maybe he’ll win the United States Championship and walk into WrestleMania as a double champion.
Bob says he’s the only one who’s won a Chamber match, Theory’s too wet behind the ear, if Rollins was really a visionary he’d see there’s no way he’s winning, and if Riddle thinks he’s gonna win the title he needs to come down off the cloud he’s on, and he’s sorry, but AJ just isn’t gonna have that glorious WrestleMania moment he wants.
And Brock Lesnar? This is as close as he’s getting to winning the WWE Championship back.
Enter Brock Lesnar, dressed like a cowboy.
He hangs his hat and cardigan on Theory and gets in Lashley’s face. They jaw at each other, Theory tries to grab a sleeper and Lesnar slips out and takes him to Suplex City! Everybody clears the ring and Brock hits the F-5 on Austin!
Street Profits are chatting at Gorilla and chat excitedly about the Chamber match and the rest of tonight’s show besides.
I rush to the bathroom and my lovely wife Josie has a Valentine’s Day treat for y’all as she sat down to do entrances—
The Street Profits enter swagging around like a real couple of assholes. Red Solo cup? Really? Then there’s a plug for the Tander Chandling movie about a dog or whatever. I guess he’s in the Chuck Norris K-9 phase of his career.
And then Ziggler and Roode. Okay, so they’re in black and red, the profits are in white and red. All the White Stripes colors are represented. Then there’s a clip of NXT. This is like when Marvel comics did endless crossovers in the early 90’s to try and get you to have to buy every single book. Ask the Marvel folks how well that worked out for sales, Vince.
Dirty Dawgz (Dolph Ziggler & Robert Roode) vs. Street Profits (Angelo Dawkins & Montez Ford)
Tommaso Ciampa is here on commentary to follow up on Dolph’s NXT appearance.
Ford and Ziggler to start, Montez hard out the gates but the heels turn it around, quick tags, eventually Dawkins tags in and clears house! Dolph gets into it with Tom at ringside, that’s enough distraction for Angelo to hit the Sky High, Ford off the top...
Street Profits win by pinfall with the frog splash from Montez Ford on Robert Roode.
Post-match, Profits run the Dawgz off while Ciampa laughs and laughs.
We go backstage to the RK-BROga party.
Matt Riddle welcomes his guests but wonders where Randy Orton is. Queen Zelina Vega thinks the party is for her but Matt corrects her and leads everyone in a “broga” chant while Randy watches from a locker room.
An interview rolls up to ask why he’s not at the party.
Orton says he’s not really a broga party kinda guy and he has a match against Seth Rollins tonight, and he’s taking that very seriously.
We get a Black History Month video package spotlighting “Soulman” Rocky Johnson.
We get a promo from Kevin Owens.
He says he’s a realist and he doesn’t kid himself, and he doesn’t think he’ll be in the Elimination Chamber match and that means he probably won’t make WrestleMania and that bothers him. But the one good thing about missing WrestleMania it means he won’t have to compete in Dallas, Texas.
See, last week he said glowing things about Texas but the people of Texas questioned his integrity, and last week he was lying, but he’ll tell you the truth this week. He can’t stand Texas, he despises everything about it. He’s from sophisticated Quebec, unlike the people of Texas, who are redneck morons!
If North America was a human body, Texas would be its ass.
AJ Styles vs. Damian Priest (c) (WWE United States Championship)
Off the ropes, side headlock, Priest with a kneeling armbar. Pressing the attack, knees, off the ropes, leapfrog into chops, Damian turns him around and fires off headbutts and body blows to stagger him. Whip blocked, shot off, backbreaker from Priest for two!
Rear chinlock with a knee to the back, AJ fires up with a Styles Rush and takes him off his feet! Corner lariat, snapmare, sliding forearm, Damian fires back with a flapjack and uses it to set up a Dominator... NOPE! AJ ducks under a leg lariat and hits the Pele kick! A clothesline sends Priest to the floor, plancha attempt, Damian trips him up!
Ducking and dodging, a kick sends Styles crashing into the apron and Priest draws him up. AJ with right hands, setting him up but Damian nails him with a roundhouse kick! Off the ropes, springboard, roll through, roll up...
Damian Priest wins by pinfall with a sunset flip to retain the WWE United States Championship.
Post-match, AJ offers Priest a handshake and the champion accepts.
We go to the therapist’s office with Alexa Bliss.
She says she hasn’t been aggressive in the last week and for the first time in a long time, life is good and she’s happy. He says she’s entitled to a gift and he asks what she would like if he says he has a gift for her. She asks for the music to stop and he shuts it off, and he presents her with the actual gift, a pile of fluff and doll parts that used to be Lilly.
He gives them to her so she can be at peace, but she’s clearly troubled by the gift and has to struggle to calm herself. He also pulls out an intact Lilly and says he has an idea as the camera zooms in on the zipper down her back.
Hurt Business (Cedric Alexander & Shelton Benjamin) vs. Omos (Handicap Match)
Alexander attacks from behind but Omos just palms his skull and throws him into the corner! Benjamin comes in, Omos stacks him up but he sidesteps and his a knee for the hope spot and the tag! Cedric springboards into a goozle, the big man boots Shelton...
Omos wins by pinfall with a chokeslam on Cedric Alexander.
We go out to dinner with Reggie and Dana Brooke and see Akira Tozawa and Tamina trying to sneak in incognito.
Akira wants to order food but she cuts him off and we cut away with the promise of more later.
We go back to the RK-BROga party and Matt Riddle gives Kevin Patrick a pep talk right before the Street Profits arrive.
Adam Pearce is in the ring to preside over a contract signing for Lita vs. Becky Lynch at Elimination Chamber.
Becky is distraught and asks Lita not to do this. She says she hasn’t slept all week, thinking about how her teenage idol would come for her so close to WrestleMania, would physically assault her last week, but she’ll let it all slide if she tears the contract up and walks away right now.
What does she have left to prove? The only people that want to see this match are demented fans, and they don’t get to decide their destiny. Lita asks the crowd what she should do, and of course they want her to sign the contract and have the match. She says she has a whole damn run left in her, and a championship run at that, and she knows why Becky’s doing this.
Last week she saw that Lita still has what it takes to beat her, and she doesn’t have to like it, but the match is happening, and Lita signs the contract.
Becky says she’s pushing her to a point she may not be able to come back from, and she’s studied Lita’s career closely and she knows all her weaknesses, and she shouldn’t think for a second that she won’t go after her neck. When she’s done with her, people will remember her with a tear in their eye.
Becks signs the contract and Lita says the only thing that’s ending on Saturday is her title reign when she becomes Raw Women’s Champion.
We get an Elimination Chamber hype reel.
Rhea Ripley gets an inset promo where she says she’s on track and focused to rip through any woman that stands between her and becoming Raw Women’s Champion again.
Nikki ASH also gets an inset promo about how she’s gonna win and such, and we go to break.

He literally shames Rey Mysterio and continues to berate the crowd.

Bliss says she doesn’t have Lilly, and the doc says she does, because her stuffing is in the new Lilly, and she should never let her go, and she’ll have a wonderful life. She thanks the doc and shakes his hand before making him shake Lilly’s... paw... and she clacks the perpetual motion balls on his desk before leaving.
