Construction for the Elimination Chamber also began when we learned of the first Chamber match scheduled for February’s PLE. Additionally, WWE Hall of Famers Edge and Beth Phoenix were there for revenge on Judgment Day.

Check out the recap and results from the January 30 episode of Monday Night Raw which took place at the BOK Center in Tulsa, Oklahoma:

– Cody Rhodes kicked off Raw and opened up about his victory in the 2023 Men’s Royal Rumble match. This led him to talk about his confirmed Wrestlemania match against undisputed WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns , as he made a bold statement.

“At WrestleMania, Roman Reigns may be the biggest superstar, but one thing he won’t be is the undisputed WWE Universal Champion.”

Judgment Day then interrupted him and this led to a clash against Finn Balor later that night. Suddenly Edge came out and started brawling with Judgment Day but the officials ran to the ring to separate them.

– Rhea Ripley came out and talked about her victory in the 2023 Women’s Royal Rumble match from first place.

She also recalled how Charlotte Flair won the Royal Rumble prize and challenged her for the title a few years ago to put her in her place.

Now, she plans to return the favor to the Queen as she has officially chosen to challenge Charlotte Flair for the SmackDown Women’s Championship at WrestleMania 39.

– During a backstage interview, Cathy Kelley asked Seth Rollins if Logan Paul eliminated him in the Men’s Royal Rumble match. Rollins left without saying anything.

– Johnny Gargano (with Dexter Lumis) defeated Baron Corbin (with JBL) to qualify for the US Title Elimination Chamber Match.

– United States Champion Austin Theory appeared on MVP’s VIP lounge. Theory wanted to change the name, The VIP Lounge to “Austin Theory Live”.

Theory then shot Bobby Lashley who eventually came out and attacked Theory. Lashley went for a spear, but Theory shot MVP past him as Lashley accidentally threw MVP.
