Raw Review 2.15

Elimination Chamber Update:

On Monday night Raw, The Miz opted to not participate in the Elimination Chamber.  Instead, elected John Morrison to take his place.  Miz has trash talked prior to many PPV events but it seems as though he is deliberately planning to make a move soon.  McIntyre issued several warnings at Miz to stop talking.  However, knowing the Miz, he refused and received a headbutt from the Scottish champ.  

Another twist happened when Kofi Kingston placed himself in a stipulation match.  Kingston argued his point with Adam Pearce that Morrison has never been a WWE Champion.  With the requirements that you need to be a former champion to be in the elimination chamber match, Kingston stated he is a former champ that deserves a shot.  Miz tried to rebuttal but did not succeed.  A match was in order for the two superstars.

Gauntlet match:

Sheamus won the gauntlet match over AJ Styles, Kingston, McIntyre, Jeff Hardy and Randy Orton.

Styles defeated Kingston as the first two matched.  Afterwards, McIntyre applied the claymore to defeat Styles.  Hardy felt the same defeat.  Orton would come to revenge on McIntyre.  However, his past came to the present.  Alexa Bliss provided a mental distraction that resulted in a count-out.  Sheamus assaulted Drew before he was ready.  Sheamus took advantage of the situation and won the match.  He is not the last man to enter the Elimination Chamber.

Notes: 

Braun Strowman was upset backstage for not being involved in the match.  He ensured Adam Pearce to speak to Shane McMahon to reconsider him as an option to be in the elimination chamber.  The last time that the Elimination Chamber had seven participants was in 2018 when Roman Reigns pinned Strowman and went on to become the Universal Champion at WrestleMania 34.
