Ups And 5 Downs From Last Night's WWE Raw (Feb 12)

In that match, Alexa Bliss will put her title on the line and the odds are hugely stacked against her. So tonight Kurt Angle made a decision to book them in a match together that is sure to create even more animosity and we could be looking at a heel turn from one of the ladies. "I want to be the man one more time", Rollins said. After Strowman was initially jumped while entering the ring, he countered Elias' attempt to hit him with a guitar by striking him down and adding a running powerslam. I like that they're giving Alexa a little storyline as we build towards Elimination Chamber, and also that Absolution are being booked to long strong. With that in mind, Bliss is determined to increase her chances of success by forging an alliance, potentially with an old foe and friend, Mickie James. Both guys were great in this segment, with Strowman showing how charismatic he can be if given a chance. Braun managed to both look like a beast and also provide plenty of comic relief, while Elias played his part expertly.

Sheamus Vs Roman is up next. That's highly expected to be at WrestleMania 34, but the good news for the WWE Universe is that this won't be a one-off match in the vein of Lawrence Taylor or Floyd Mayweather Jr. Yet the loss comes after the best singles match the two have ever engaged in. It means nothing unless he gets people to be emotionally invested in his character, but from an in-ring standpoint, he belonged with the other main event talents in this fatal five match.

Guardiola: All credit to four-goal Aguero
Aguero unleashed a rocket of a shot from just outside the box in the 90th minute to score his fourth goal of the second half. The Algeria global failed to show up at the King Power Stadium after his move to the Etihad Stadium fell through.

With the Elimination Chamber PPV set to be a historic night featuring the first-ever women's Elimination Chamber match and Ronda Rousey signing with the 'E, this additional bit of history presents its fair share of speculation. As multi-man main events go, this was a solid bout.

Verdict: Raw makes it three for three on the road to WrestleMania.
