WWE Monday Night RAW Review & Results: February 12th, 2018

A WrestleMania Main Event Rematch

John Cena came out and did an expectedly good promo, whipping up the San Jose crowd and also announcing his motives entering the Elimination Chamber – he wanted to face Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania. Two birds with one stone – a good opening segment for WWE RAW.

What followed was a good Cena vs Miz match, much better than the one a certain Dwayne Johnson interfered in. Bo and Curtis were banned from ringside, which was a blessing – it is so hard to watch a Miz match without his cronies nowadays. But fortunately, Miz did not get treated as if he were Baron Corbin from last year’s Summerslam. The Awesome One actually put up a good fight against The Face That Runs the Place. He even kicked out of Cena’s Attitude Adjustment and successfully delivered his Stone Crushing Finale! But then again, this match re-ignited the fuel for our little nuisance – finisher kick-outs. We never like the trope being used on any other show than WrestleMania.

Overall, this show was off to an auspicious start.

A side note: The Elimination Chamber logo looked Ug. Ly. But the Nerd-o-Meter thing was cool.

When The Nerds Got Mad

Gallows and Anderson, you see what happens when you call The Revival nerds? They will chop your legs off from behind, and then kick your ass in a tag team match. You know, since they are actual nerds in team-fighting.

The Revival got a decisive victory against two-thirds of Balor Club tonight, and to us, it was a solid step on the road to redesign and rebuild Wilder and Dawson. Seth, we need two of those T-shirts, pronto.

The coda from this? Never, EVER, call The Revival nerds.

Back To Where He Belongs

The promo segment between Seth Rollins and Kurt Angle had a huge take-away: Seth Rollins is back in the main event picture. And it was about time he did, too. From the rarely-appearing Brock Lesnar, to the likes of Braun Strowman, Roman Reigns, John Cena, and a (sadly) currently injured Samoa Joe, and some stand-out upper midcarders such as Finn Balor and The Miz, the WWE Universal Championship scene is busier and more exciting than ever. We felt excited about the inclusion of Seth Rollins to the second-chance Fatal-4-Way later on in the night, since it meant something much, much more substantial. Welcome back to the fold, Seth.
