We are on the road to WrestleMania and for Raw this PPV will set a couple of WrestleMania matches in stone. This Sunday in Las Vegas we will witness for the 1st time ever a women’s elimination chamber match and also a 7 man elimination chamber match. Plus we also have Ronda Rousey signing her full time contract with WWE (hopefully her writing her name on a piece of paper will not bury the first ever women’s elimination chamber match).  This is Raw’s finally PPV before WrestleMania and the final exclusive PPV as WWE has decided to end brand exclusive PPVs after mania.

Matches and Predictions

Kickoff Show

Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson (Balor Club) vs The Revival: These are 2 potential #1 contenders to face the Bar. The Revival hasn’t had much success on the main roster due to injury but I like them and their style. I’m taking The Revival in this match and I hope that it leads to a title shot soon. Prediction: The Revival

Raw tag team championship- Sheamus and Cesaro(C) vs Titus Worldwide: Titus worldwide has beat the Bar twice and Apollo is really showing off his skill set and coming into his own but that won’t be enough. I hope he finds success in the WWE because he is amazing but Sheamus and Cesaro are just to elite and they will walk into WrestleMania with the Raw tag team titles. Prediction: Sheamus and Cesaro retains

Main Card

“Woken” Matt Hardy vs Bray Wyatt: I loved the Broken gimmick but the Woken gimmick seems to have no direction and probably won’t because Vince would want to own everything from Vanguard 1 to Senior Benjamin. This is a feud that seems to hurt both Matt and Bray and should be the most popular feud on Raw. Hopefully this will end on Sunday and they will move on and if it does I have Matt Hardy with the win. Prediction: “Woken” Matt Hardy

Asuka vs Nia Jax: WWE kind of put themselves in a tight space with this match. Both of these women are dominate forces and WWE wants to build momentum for both of them. One person is going to lose momentum with a loss and that person will be Nia Jax. Asuka needs to keep her momentum going into Mania for whomever she decides to face at WrestleMania making that match much more important. It’s either lose the streak or capture your first title on the main roster. Prediction: NO ONE IS READY FOR ASUKA!!!!!

Women’s Championship Elimination Chamber match- Alexa Bliss(C) vs Sasha Banks vs Bayley vs Mickie James vs Sonya Deville vs Mandy Rose: I don’t think this match will disappoint. The only thing I would say is that it’s very predictable. There is no way WWE is taking that title off of Alexa right now. She will lose it at WrestleMania. Prediction: Alexa Bliss

Men’s Elimination Chamber Match- Roman Reigns vs John Cena vs Braun Strowman vs Elias Samson vs Seth Rollins vs Finn Balor vs The Miz: This is a very stacked match with current and future Hall of famers. This should be match of the night but once again I see 1 problem with this, we already know who is going to WrestleMania to be Brock for the title. Like I have said on multiple occasions this is WWE’s worst kept secret. This will be a very entertaining match that will probably get a lot of people’s hopes up but we already know who the winner will be then, now and forever….Roman Reigns. No prediction we all know Vince wants to make it Reign.
