Jey Uso appeared on the program and threw out the challenge for Jimmy Uso to face him at WrestleMania 40.

Scheduled for the 3/18 Raw is a Last Woman Standing match between Nia Jax and Becky Lynch. 

At WrestleMania 40, The Judgment Day (Finn Bálor & Damian Priest) are going to be defending their Undisputed WWE Tag Team Championships in a six-pack Ladder match. Qualifying matches begin on the 3/18 Raw and those are listed as follows: 

  • New Day (Kofi Kingston & Xavier Woods) vs. Alpha Academy (Otis & Akira Tozawa)
  • D.I.Y. (Johnny Gargano & Tommaso Ciampa) vs. The Creed Brothers (Julius Creed & Brutus Creed)
  • The Miz & R-Truth vs. Indus Sher (Veer & Sanga) 

There was a tag match that saw Candice LeRae and Indi Hartwell take on Maxxine Dupri and Ivy Nile. During the bout, LeRae criticized Dupri’s move-set and said there’s a reason the crowd booed her at a house show. LeRae added that Dupri should hear what the locker room has to say about her and that it’s a good thing Dupri’s deceased brother is not here to see her performances. Maxxine attempted to leave the ring after that but was taken out by Hartwell and pinned. Dupri’s brother passed away in 2017 in a traffic collision. 

While showing WWE talents at UFC 299, there was a photo that came up of Rhea Ripley and her significant other Buddy Matthews. Cole did not mention Matthews but after he said Rhea was at the event, McAfee yelled, “With who!?”

The Kabuki Warriors (Kairi Sane & Asuka) defeated Shayna Baszler and Zoey Stark to retain the WWE Women’s Tag Team Championships.
