It is official that on the 2/27 edition of Monday Night Raw, Damage CTRL’s IYO SKY and Dakota Kai are going to defend the WWE Women’s Tag Team Championships against Becky Lynch and WWE Hall of Famer Lita. The challengers called out SKY and Kai which led to Bayley accepting the match on their behalf after being pressured. 

After getting himself disqualified against Bobby Lashley at Elimination Chamber, Brock Lesnar received a WrestleMania challenge from Omos on behalf of MVP. Lesnar is being advertised for next week to address the challenge. 

In the main event of the program, Edge took on Austin Theory for the United States Championship. Finn Balor ambushed Edge and cost him the match. 

To open the show, Sami Zayn appeared and called Kevin Owens to the ring. Sami suggested that they take down The Bloodline together and Owens denied Sami’s help. He told Zayn to, “Ask your buddy Jey” for help as Kevin will continue battling the group on his own. 

As Zayn was walking to the back, he was ambushed by Baron Corbin for interrupting him last week. Zayn went on to defeat Corbin in a singles match. 

Maryse was featured alongside The Miz in a backstage segment. She handed him a golden envelope and Miz said he’ll share what was in the envelope on 2/27. It was described as ‘big news’. 

During a sit-down interview with Rhea Ripley, Dominik Mysterio, who was present alongside Rhea, said he’ll be appearing on SmackDown this Friday for her face-to-face with her WrestleMania opponent, SmackDown Women’s Champion Charlotte Flair. Dominik mentioned that Rey Mysterio is facing Karrion Kross on 2/24. 

In a local ad for the March 3rd SmackDown in Washington D.C., it is being promoted that Cody Rhodes is facing Finn Balor on the show. 

Scheduled for 2/24 is Carmella versus Asuka in addition to Candice LeRae versus Piper Niven. 

Logan Paul cost Seth Rollins the United States Title at Elimination Chamber and on tonight’s Raw, Rollins said he’s going to find and hurt Paul.
