After defeating United States Champion Damian Priest in a non-title match, AJ Styles secured himself a shot at the U.S. Title for next week’s Raw.

The duo of Randy Orton and Riddle have earned a rematch for Alpha Academy (Chad Gable & Otis’) Raw Tag Team Titles. They bested Gable and Otis in a ‘Quiz Bowl’ to get the title match. After the ‘Quiz Bowl’, Gable and Otis went on to defeat The Street Profits (Montez Ford & Angelo Dawkins) in tag team action. On 2/14, Orton and Riddle are hosting their RK-Broga party.

Brock Lesnar will be back on Raw next week in Indianapolis, Indiana. Lesnar appeared on last week’s show to address his WWE Title loss at the Royal Rumble. Lesnar is scheduled for the WWE Championship Elimination Chamber match.

Coming off a loss to Austin Theory in a Elimination Chamber qualifier, Kevin Owens went one-on-one with Theory again on the 2/7 Raw and Owens got his win back.

The reigning WWE Champion Bobby Lashley appeared in front of his home-state crowd in Colorado. Lashley was born in Kansas, but went to school and resides in Colorado.

The main event of Raw was scheduled to be Seth Rollins versus Riddle. Kevin Owens made a run-in and ambushed Riddle which led to Randy Orton making the save. Rollins and Owens defeated Riddle and Orton in a tag match to close the show.
