WWE Monday Night Raw Results – February 5, 2018: John Cena vs. Braun Strowman vs. Elias


Welcome to WWE Monday Night Raw. There is a recap video of last week’s episode of Raw. Bray Wyatt laughs and says the Elimination Chamber is upon us, the home of his greatest victory when he won the WWE Championship. Standing in the way of repeating his destiny is his nemesis, Roman Reigns. This once great warrior has fallen so far that the world does not recognize him. He lost the Royal Rumble and Intercontinental Title, but he maintains his bravado. Bray says he sees Roman for what he is, a failure waiting to be put out of his misery. Bray says he is happy to oblige. Roman will find out that at the bottom of that spiral is something worse than failure . . . him.

Roman says Bray thinks he is a failure waiting to be put out of his misery. A failure is something who cannot deal with adversity and he cannot get up when he is down.
