Last night, the Elimination Chamber gave us the person who will face Brock Lesnar at Wrestlemania.  We also had the first Women's Elimination Chamber Match.  Ronda Rousey also signed her Raw contract, despite being told by Kurt Angle that she was going to be a puppet of Stephanie and Hunter.  What will happen tonight as we move a show closer to Wrestlemania?

We are in Anaheim, California and your announcers are Michael Cole, Corey Graves, and Jonathan Coachman.

We take a look back to Ronda Rousey's contract signing from The Elimination Chamber.

Alexa Bliss and Mickie James make their way to the ring.

We see what happened in the Women's Elimination Chamber as well as in the match between Asuka and Nia Jax from last night.

Alexa says it was an historic moment.  When you thought it was impossible, she amazes herself.  You do not know how amazing it was to retain her title in the first ever Women's Elimination Chamber Match.  She defied the odds and set the standard for being the Women's Champion.  They will talk about her victories for the next ten, twenty, or fifty years.  They will say that February 25, 2018 was when she changed the game then, now, and forever.

Alexa says she wants to give credit where it is due.  Mickie showed why she is a six time champion and a future Hall of Famer.  Alexa says she has learned so much from her and everyone in the locker room could learn from her.

Alexa has something to say about Mandy Rose and Sonya Deville.  They have a bright future, but not while she is champion.

Sasha Banks and Bayley.  When it comes to Bayley, she had some harsh words and she doesn't want to be that person, but she will say it.  Bayley is a sad situation.  Alexa says she took advantage of Sasha's biggest asset, her ego and she beat The Boss. 

Alexa says that is why she is going to Wrestlemania as she points at the sign and says it feels good to do it.  She will feel as good at Wrestlemania when she breaks Asuka's streak.  Alexa reminds us that Nia got her hands on Asuka.  Alexa says she cannot wait to finish the job that Nia started at Wrestlemania.

Asuka makes her way to the ring and she is in the mood to fight.

Alexa points out that Asuka is acting like she is 100% healthy, but that is not true because Nia crushed her.  Alexa says she wished that Nia won so she could be in the Women's Title Match like she deserves to be.  One tiny mishap and she loses.  Nia deserves to be in the title match.  Alexa speaks slowly so Asuka can understand.  Alexa tells Asuka to wipe that smile off her face before she does.

Nia Jax' music plays and she makes her way to the ring. 

Asuka takes care of Alexa and Mickie but Nia with a body block on Asuka.  Nia picks up Asuka for a vertical choke but Asuka counters with a triangle.  Alexa and Mickie attack Asuka, but Bayley and Sasha Banks come to the ring and Bayley and Sasha take care of Alexa and Mickie.  Sasha and Bayley are taken down by Nia and then Asuka gets in a few shots on Nia but Nia takes care of Asuka.

We take a look at John Cena's comments on Raw Talk.

We go to commercial.

We are back and John Cena makes his way to the ring.

John looks at the Wrestlemania sign and then he says last night he failed.   In a moment of failure and in the finale of it all, he was rushed into a room and put in front of microphone and he was demoralized.  Failure is tough.  You can tell that you go through failure alone.  He knows where he is at.  A person's character is not judged on when you rise to the top.  You are judged when your back is against the wall.  That time is now.  

He says he spent five minutes last night feeling sorry for himself and then he moved forward.  John says he will figure it out and he is talking about his Road to Wrestlemania, as he points to the sign.  John says he thought it would be the Royal Rumble, but he failed.  He did not give up.  He thought it would be the Elimination Chamber, but he failed.  No one else will come into the ring in front of everyone and say 'I Failed'.

When you say you failed, the disappointment is on you.  It is your fault and you go through failure alone.  Failure made John who he is today.  You can stay down or get up and John says that he is up because he figured it out.  John says he has to do something he should have done a long time ago.

John says he will put out a Wrestlemania challenge . . . to the Undertaker.

Thirty nine Wrestlemanias between the two of us and we have never stood face to face in the ring.  If you want Wrestlemania, that is Wrestlemania.  That match is not happening.  John says he does not make the matches.  He says that match is not happening because that match is impossible.  Now you understand the disappointment of failure.  You can stay down or get up.  John says his road to Wrestlemania goes through Smackdown.  John will go to Smackdown, not to beg, but to do whatever it takes to earn a spot at Wrestlemania.

We go to commercial.

We are back and Bray Wyatt makes his way to the ring.

Bray takes a mic and he relaxes in the corner.  He tells Matt to look at what he made him do.  He made him hurt these innocent men.  You led them to slaughter.  The great war is far from over.  You will face him again.  He will make sure that Matt's woken eyes are shut forever.  Bray tells Matt that he is coming for him.  He tells Matt to run.

Miz walks in the back as we go to commercial.
