WWE Monday Night Raw comes waltzing back into our lives tonight (Feb. 13, 2023) from the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York, featuring all the latest build to the upcoming Elimination Chamber Premium Live Event scheduled for this coming Saturday night in Montreal, Quebec, Canada.

Advertised for tonight: Brock Lesnar and Bobby Lashley come together for a contract signing, Seth Rollins will be a special guest on “Miz TV,” Asuka & Nikki Cross & Carmella team up to take on Liv Morgan & Raquel Rodriguez & Natalya, The Miz takes on BOOGS, Mustafa Ali goes up against the big man Bronson Reed, and more!

Come right back here at 8 pm ET when the Raw live blog will kick off once the show starts on USA Network. It will be below this line here. Reminder: GIFs and pics allowed, but no links to illegal streams, please.


Rising with the sun, the work has been done but the people are starting to stare. Called from the afar to court of the Czar, could it be something is wrong? You stand face to face and your heart gathers place, but me, I’m just here to liveblog this pro wrestling show for you, folks.

The show opens with the intro video.

Adam Pearce is in the ring and Becky Lynch makes her entrance.

Lynch gets on the mic and welcomes us to Monday Night Raw and says she dressed all spiffy for us and brought Adam Pearce, but she’ll get to him later. As good as it felt to beat Bayley in that steel cage, and a big shoutout to Lita for her help, but she lost sight of her road to WrestleMania and the women’s championship.

We’re less than a week to Elimination Chamber, and she knows Pearce likes to up the ante and make some fights, so she’s asking for a chance to fight her way into the chamber right here, tonight.

Enter Bayley.

She calls Becky an idiot and says she didn’t finish anything last week since Lita had to finish things, but Lynch has a different point of view. Bayley asks Adam to scratch the cage match from the record books, uninvite Lita from all events, and put her in the chamber, since she’s earned it.

They keep bickering about their credentials—

Enter Bianca Belair.

She’s confused as to why nobody thought to come and talk to her about title matches, because if they’d just asked, she likes where this is going and she wants to face the best of the best of the best at WrestleMania, and since there are already six women in the chamber, they should have to go through her to get into it.

Pearce books a three-way, where if Becky or Bayley win, they get into the chamber and it starts as a three-way, and if Bianca wins, neither of them are in. It’s official!

Commentary hypes up the rest of the show.

Byron Saxton tries to interview Judgment Day.

Damian Priest asks if the five other men in the chamber are ready to be in the cage with him, and Dominik Mysterio uses his Prison Expertise to judge that Priest will win the match. Plus he got off the phone with Rhea Ripley, who is as excited for Elimination Chamber as she is for Valentine’s Day.

Street Profits make their entrance and we go to break.

Judgment Day (Damian Priest & Finn Balor) vs. Street Profits (Angelo Dawkins & Montez Ford)

Priest and Dawkins to start, big elbow, tag to Balor, snapmare into a slingshot stomp for two. Back to Damian, Profits with a quick tag and running hot and we go to break.

Back from commercial, Ford counters with a crossbody and both men are down and out! Tags made, Dawkins runs over Balor like a freight train, whip reversed, up and over, corkscrew elbow, Drill Bit connects! Electric chair blockbuster... NOPE! Tope con giro takes Priest out, Angelo slingshots Mysterio in and pounces him!

Finn with Sling Blade, shotgun dropkick, he goes up top...

Judgment Day win by pinfall with Coup de Grace from Finn Balor on Angelo Dawkins.

Post-match, Edge and Beth Phoenix hit the ring and attack Judgment Day! Beth takes Dominik out with a spear but Rhea Ripley appears and clobbers her before she can hit the Glam Slam! RIPTIDE!

And so we go to break.

Back from commercial we get footage of some sports men receiving their obligatory WWE Championship title belt.

Brock Lesnar makes his entrance for a contract signing.

He’s already signed the contract and he calls Bobby Lashley out to handle his end.

He’s got a table on the stage and refuses to come to the ring because this isn’t the Brock Lesnar Show, and he’s sick of this because every time he and Brock meet face-to-face he leaves him pinned, unconscious, or eliminated from the Royal Rumble, and he’s in the driver’s seat now.

Lesnar accuses him of being scared and demands he come to the ring, but Bob isn’t having it. Brock leaves the ring and beats a bunch of security up until Lashley back body drops him on the ramp! Taking a few steps back, he spears Lesnar hard on the stage!

Bob signs the contract and drops it on Brock’s fallen body!

And so we go to break.

“Michin” Mia Yim vs. Piper Niven

Yim in with elbows, Niven nearly takes it with a big crossbody, off the ropes, Mia with the tornado DDT! Piper back in with a big senton, only two! Michin with some strikes, Eat Defeat blocked, off the ropes, Niven’s got her...

Piper Niven wins by pinfall with a Black Hole Slam that we’re informed she calls Loch Ness Slam.

We get a recap of the Usos’ successful title defense on SmackDown and Jey’s refusal to confirm whether he’s in or out, and we go to break.

Back from commercial, we get a recap of Baron Corbin getting beat and having John “Bradshaw” Layfield wash his hands of him.

Sami Zayn hits the ring, interrupting some backstage followup, and gets on the mic.

He says he’s not here to hold up the show but he has something to say and someone to say it to and he’s not sure he’s gonna have the chance Saturday after Elimination Chamber in Montreal, so Cody Rhodes, if you’ll indulge him and come to this ring right now.

Enter Cody Rhodes, mic in hand.

He gets in the ring and welcomes Sami to Raw and asks what he wants to talk about. Zayn says one moment has been playing in his mind over and over since Cody said it, and that’s that it’s going to be the two of them at WrestleMania, so he came all this way to look him dead in the eyes and hear it face to face, man to man.

Was that just lip service or does he actually believe that Sami can beat Roman Reigns? Rhodes admits his bandwith is dedicated to winning the title and that means he doesn’t have a lot of energy to BS him, so when he said that Zayn would beat Roman and will most likely be his opponent at WrestleMania, he believed it.

But respectfully, Rhodes doesn’t think what this is about. Does it really matter what he believes? What does Sami believe? Zayn says the truth is he doesn’t know. Cody hasn’t been in the trenches with the Bloodline like he has, and he knows deeply that they always find a way.

This thing about Roman being in God Mode? He actually is as good as he says he is, and he’s seen it, he’s seen guys bigger and stronger than him walk into matches against Reigns full of conviction and every single one of them went down. So now he’s supposed to believe that after all this time, after almost 900 days, that he’s gonna be the one?

He believes he’s capable of beating Roman and becoming the Universal Champion and that he’s worthy of being WrestleMania main event material, yes he has to believe that, because if he doesn’t, no one else will. But does he actually think he’s going to be the one walking out of Montreal as champion? He doesn’t know.

Rhodes says it seems like everybody here knows, and everybody in Montreal knows, and he hasn’t watched Roman up close, but he’s watched him from when he won the title until now, and there’s dissension in the Bloodline for the first time ever, cracks in the armor, and that’s all because of Sami.

You wanna say Roman Reigns is on God Mode? Print it and put it on a t-shirt, but Roman is a man and Sami can crack him open at the Chamber and prove it. Cody will finish his story, and Sami needs to finish his!

But one more thing— he doesn’t want to see Sami on Raw next Monday, because he’d rather see him at WrestleMania.

Carmella is backstage when Nikki Cross rolls up giggling about playing hide and seek with her new friend. Mella wants to know where their other teammate is, and MURDER CLOWN Asuka rolls up, causing her to storm off about how weird she is.

Candice LeRae rolls up to ask why Nikki’s been following her but just gets a creepy laugh for her trouble.

And so we go to break.

Back from commercial, Baron Corbin is interviewed backstage.

He says we all saw what happened last week and he’s better off without JBL and his bad advice and his stupid cowboy hat. He’s a has-been, he’s the past, and it’s time to remind people who Baron Corbin is. He’s tired of being disrespected, like how his interviewe got interrupted for Sami Zayn. SAMI ZAYN!

He hates to rain on a parade, but Roman is going to destroy Sami at Elimination Chamber. Baron reminds us that he’s the last person to have beaten Roman Reigns and says he got blindsided at Royal Rumble and that’s the only reason he didn’t win. Now Roman’s gonna run straight through Cody Rhodes, who nursed a minor injury for eight months and then got handed the #30 spot at WrestleMania.

He thinks Cody is a joke, he thinks his brother is a joke, he thinks his dad is a joke, and he thinks his dog is a joke.

Cody appears from behind him and attacks! They fight to the stage and Rhodes demands a referee, he wants a match right now!

Baron Corbin vs. Cody Rhodes

Rhodes passes Corbin to the floor and dives on him! Throwing Baron over the barricade, breaking the count, Baron scoops him up but Rhodes floats over and puts him into the post! Trading strikes on the floor, Corbin pulls him up onto the announce desk! They brawl, Baron falls off, Cody takes him back inside, off the top and onto his feet, drop down slap sets up the Cody Cutter!

Rhodes is fired up. inverted facelock...

Cody Rhodes wins by pinfall with Cross Rhodes.

Liv Morgan, Raquel Rodriguez, and Natalya are chatting in Gorilla before their match.

Nattie complains about Bayley and Becky Lynch trying to worm their way into the match, she and Liv bicker at each other until Raquel’s had enough and shouts at them to focus on the match and save this for Saturday.

Liv Morgan makes her entrance and we go to break.

Asuka, Carmella, & Nikki Cross vs. Liv Morgan, Natalya, & Raquel Rodriguez

Cross and Rodriguez to start, Nikki looking for a sleeper, she gets slung off and a fallaway slam follows. Tags made, Natalya and Carmella now, early Sharpshooter, but Cross breaks it up! Brawling with Raquel, Asuka runs in too and we get wild brawling that sends us to break.

Back from commercial, Natalya with a slam to Carmella crawling for the tag and now it’s Morgan on Cross! Kick combo sends Nikki sprawling, missile dropkick follows and she falls into the corner, tagging Asuka in! Strike rush, overwhelming Liv, Alarm Clock follows, cover... NATTIE BREAKS IT UP!

Carmella and Nikki both hanging off of Raquel, Asuka breaks it up with a kick and takes her own partner out with a roundhouse kick and a German suplex! A German suplex and a roundhouse kick for Carmella too, modified Rings of Saturn on Morgan...

Asuka, Carmella, & Nikki Cross win by submission with a modified Rings of Saturn from Asuka on Liv Morgan.

Alpha Academy are chatting backstage.

Otis Dozovic is eating a hot dog but Chad Gable tells him how bad they are for him and throws it away, throwing it right in Mansoor’s face, spattering mustard all over him.

Maxxine Dupri is taken by Otis and asks him if he’s given thought to modeling. Chad answers like he thinks she was talking to him but she shoots him down and gives Dozer a business card.

Bronson Reed rolls up to laugh at them and we go to break.

Bronson Reed vs. Mustafa Ali

Ali slipping out of the corner, big overhand chop but Reed just bowls him over! Scoop lift, Mustafa floats over, up and over, off the ropes but Bronson steps into him and Ali goes down! Boot up in the corner, a kick to the arm, a dropkick to the knee, right hands, back body drop to the floor!

Shoulder block off the apron, back inside, upkick, Mustafa off the ropes with a dropkick! Off the apron, diving crossbody is caught and Reed slams him over the timekeeper’s barricade and into chairs! Dragging Ali back to the ring, Mustafa powers up with a tornado DDT but Reed takes him out...

Bronson Reed wins by pinfall with the 747 Splash.

We get a recap of the beginning of the show, because Raw is three hours long. (Three hours long.)

Backstage, Beth Phoenix and Edge are interviewed.

Edge has comments about earlier, and he’s tired of it. A year of back-and-forth with the Judgment Day, and at Elimination Chamber they’re gonna remind them exactly why they’re the Grit Couple.

The Miz makes his entrance to send us to break.

Back from commercial, Miz welcomes us to MizTV and he wants to talk about Elimination Chamber, mainly to complain about why he’s not in the match.

He decides to stop talking about himself and about his guest, Seth Rollins.

Seth makes his entrance in the silly red Twitter boots and a mesh shirt because why not, and Miz asks him what the deal with the boots are. Rollins says it’s called style and Miz wouldn’t know a think about it. Miz wants to talk about Logan Paul but Seth isn’t having it, calling him a dumpster fire that nobody wants to hear about and encouraging the crowd to sing his theme more.

Pressed to stay on topic, Rollins says his mama told him not to say anything at all if he doesn’t have something nice to say. Miz keeps pressing him and Seth snaps, calling him by his shoot name and telling him to shut up, which gets a “Shut up, Mike” chant out of the crowd.

Seth doesn’t want to talk about Logan Paul because of WrestleMania. All he ever wanted was to headline the show and that dream matters to him. It matters to Miz and to every person in this arena, because we love this. But Paul doesn’t give a damn about that dream.

He’s selfish and soulless and only cares about lining his own pockets, and Rollins won’t say his name because he doesn’t deserve it. All Logan wants is attention, but what he needs is to have his teeth kicked in. Miz calls Seth jealous, Rollins says he knows Mike is stupid but he’s not THAT stupid.

Brooklyn agrees, Miz shouts at them and reminds Seth that he’s headlined WrestleMania and Rollins might never, so Rollins snaps and blasts him with a chair! Austin Theory yanks him out of the ring before he can hit Blackout! Seth takes Austin out but Miz recovers and attacks before he can stomp Theory!

Back inside, fight out of Skull-Crushing Finale, superkick connects, the crowd sings... BLACKOUT WITH THE BIG RED BOOTS! Austin inside... A-Town Down! Theory jaws at Rollins and says he’s done with him.

Backstage, Elias is chatting with Rick Boogs.

The Drifter says he doesn’t want the pressure of being compared to him to stress Rick out and Boogs thanks him. Elias wishes him luck and says maybe they can do a collaboration one day. Rick says he was born and bred to rip and shred and he’s gonna shred the Miz tonight.

He’s so pumped he’s boogin’ out!

Miz is unconscious as we go to break.

Rick Boogs vs. the Miz

Miz wakes up and gets on the mic to beg off from the match, calling Boogs a meathead and claiming there’s no way they’re having this match.

But the bell rings and Boogs suplexes him! Pumphandle, curling the Miz in his arms for a set of ten before throwing the A-Lister aside! Military press...

Rick Boogs wins by pinfall with a military press World’s Strongest Slam.

Chelsea Green is complaining to Adam Pearce and she demands to be treated like the star she is and she wants a redo and a spot in the Elimination Chamber. Adam refuses to put her in the three-way tonight and she says she’ll stay here until she gets in the match, and if he touches her, she’ll scream.

She’s feeling very threatened right now, and Pearce just walks away, and we go to break.

Back from commercial, Judgment Day are interviewed.

Finn Balor claims they always have the upper hand and he thinks Edge and Beth like getting beat a little TOO much. Dominik Mysterio says the thing about them and his pathetic dad is they were good once, but the game has just passed them by. Damian Priest talks up all their future victories.

Rhea Ripley says her rise to the top starts this weekend when she and Finn beat the crap out of the Grit Couple.

An Elimination Chamber hype reel follows.

We see Bianca Belair walking backstage and we go to break.

Back from commercial, we get our main event entrances and go to break.

Bayley vs. Becky Lynch vs. Bianca Belair

Bayley sidelined almost immediately, Lynch off the second, Belair catches her and rolls through, front kick for the Role Model but on a second swing she pushes the EST into the corner and breaks it up. Mounted punches, clubbing blows, posting Bianca and then Bayley goes out after Becky and throws her into the barricade!

Back inside, cover for two on the EST! Whip into the corner, Saito suplex but Belair kicks out! Lynch returns, Bayley throws her to the apron and hits the Stunner over the middle rope! Leg pick, taking Bianca down into a kneebar but Becky breaks it up with a leg drop off the top!

Belair powering up but Lynch cuts her off and hits a double DDT for a nearfall as we go to break.

Back from commercial, Belair with a Glam Slam into the turnbuckles on Bayley... NOPE! Getting Lynch up for one too, she reverses with a victory roll and Bianca goes into the turnbuckles and down for a two count! Becky up top, Belair cuts her off, Tower of Doom, Bayley with opportunistic covers but she can’t get a win out of it!

Stacking them up, Bayley drops an elbow off the top but Bianca rolls away from it and breaks up the pin coming out of it! Shoulder blocks and a dropkick, Belair fired up, mounted punches on Lynch! Backflip up and over when the Role Model charges in, following it with a delayed vertical suplex on her!

Handspring moonsault... THE KNEES ARE UP! Folding press, feet on the ropes but Becky knocks ‘em down! Diamond Dust into Bayley, Manhandle Slam follows but IYO SKY pulls Lynch out of the ring and throws her into the post! Getting Bayley up for KOD, Dakota Kai breaks it up and then IYO dropkicks Bianca on the apron, the Role Model with a cover... BELAIR KICKS OUT!

The Elimination Chamber entrants run in and brawl, Bianca with a spinebuster, folding press... NOPE! SKY up top, Belair gets her in a military press and marches her across the ring to throw her into all the chamber entrants! Bayley with a forearm to the back, Lynch returns, rolling solebutts, KOD puts Becky into Bayley...

Bianca Belair wins by pinfall on Bayley, ensuring that neither she nor Becky Lynch will be in the Elimination Chamber match.

Bianca celebrates while commentary hypes the pay-per-view up.

That’s the show, folks.
