The February 11 episode of WWE Raw saw the return of Seth Rollins after a break of a week and he was more than ready to tackle his next World Championship game against Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania 35.
This promotion, along with Becky Lynch's invitation from the McMahon family to participate in the show's flagship and final version of the Elimination Chamber this Sunday, is a remarkable episode.
What happened to each other and how did it affect the stars, stories and matches planned for the extravagance of pay-per-view television?
Check it out with this recap of Monday's presentation of the USA network.

Triple H and Stephanie McMahon kicked off the show this week and recapped the events of last Monday and Tuesday, when Becky Lynch assaulted shamelessly and made fools at the figures of the day. ;authority.
The influential couple stated that they wanted to know the opinion of Lynch's doctors about his knee injury. The Man responded by stopping the band, going to the ring and revealing that his doctors had allowed him to compete against Ronda Rousey for the Raw Women's Championship at WrestleMania on April 7.
Stephanie and Triple H lifted the suspension but said the match would only be played if Irish Lass Kicker apologized for getting it on last week.
Lynch said the McMahon family had spent years screwing up people and had come face to face with Stephanie in an intense exchange.
The Game said The Man would prove how much she wanted the match against Rousey by apologizing, which would make him do the rest of the show.
The segment could have done without Lynch in the Triple H recap, but beside this little criticism, it's a well-done angle that set up a later segment of the series and let the fans guess what The Man would do in the end.
This is the key to an effective TV segment that will make the show much more attractive.
That said, Lynch needs to stay up and continue to spit in the face of management for this to happen properly because a sterilized man is not someone who has an interest in watching.

In a preview of Sunday's playoff match for the women's team championships, Liv Morgan and Sarah Logan, Tamina Snuka and Nia Jax, as well as Riott Squad's Sasha Banks and Bayley, competed in a Triple Threat match for give the shot of sending the portion in the ring of Monday show.
The stipulation added? The losing team will participate first in the fight for Sunday's big-ticket title.
The match's story forced Bayley to go it alone after another injury to Banks, with their championship aspirations likely tied to his ability to resist punishments. She did it for much of the match and fought Morgan and Logan.
Unfortunately, Snuka's brute force proved too effective while Tamina pushed her with a Samoan Drop to win.
Jax and Snuka defeated Bayley and Banks and Riott Squad
The match was nothing more than the televised clashes that we saw between these teams before, but the story of Bayley fighting for his team was a nice touch that elevated his quality and suddenly set the old favorites as the favorites. outsiders Sunday night.
He also highlighted the chemical makeup of the team at The Riott Squad and put forth the unstoppable strength of Snuka and Jax. In this regard, it has been a great success and positively added to the otherwise hasty nature of construction at Sunday's historic match.

Following the Grammy Awards, Elias was found repeatedly interrupted, including by Gran Metalik, Kalisto and Lince Dorado of Lucha House Party.
Elias is said to be the greatest musician on the planet and after hearing the song of the slogan "You Fear", he handed his guitar to Kalisto to show him how difficult it was.
After teasing a duet, he pummeled Kalisto with another guitar, leaving the former US champion a liar.
Metalik and Dorado asked their comrade to close the segment.
Lucha House Party against Elias is the quarrel absolutely no one has asked.
It was not particularly engaging, and it was not worth using Elias, who fell out of favor just eight months after being at his best as a character.
Let's hope this is not what Road to WrestleMania reserves for one of the most interesting characters in the series, because if that were the case, the editorial team could walk with Elias .. close to a creative cliff.

Intercontinental champion Bobby Lashley and match spokesman Lio Rush witnessed Finn Balor's victory over Drew McIntyre.
By announcing that Balor would be competing for the title in the handicap event against Lashley and Rush at Elimination Chamber, the Irishman sought to leave a lasting impression against The Scottish Psychopath.
Before the match really began, Lashley pushed Balor in front of the official, resulting in a disqualification.
McIntyre, Rush and Lashley defeated Balor, but Kurt Angle made the save. He succeeded until Baron Corbin arrived. The Lone Wolf reversed the trend in favor of the heels until Braun Strowman arrives and clears the ring.
Balor defeated McIntyre via disqualification
Quickly, someone calls Teddy Long because we are about to have a team match, playa!
This made sense in the context of the rivalries that mingled, but the reservation is so lazy, obvious and predictable that one has to wonder if WWE Creative is even trying at this point.
The match that he will engender will probably be fair depending on the stars involved, but otherwise, it looked like the preparation of the same match we have been watching for three months, in one form or another.

And just like that, the predicted match is about the ring.
Drew McIntyre, Bobby Lashley and Baron Corbin isolated Finn Balor from their partners Kurt Angle and Braun Strowman, causing early success.
The Irishman finally found himself in Angle, who found himself under fire from the ruthless beat of the trio of villains.
The Olympic gold medalist finally drew the attacker against Balor, who exploded in the match and led the fight against all those who were on his way.
The action failed, with Strowman tied with Corbin on the floor. His hand wrapped around the Lone Wolf's esophagus, the monster among the men lost track of McIntyre, who hit him with a Claymore kick.
Back in the interior, Lashley scored a controversial pin on Balor, whose foot on the lower rope was not detected by the official and was quickly withdrawn by his opponent, Elimination Chamber .
The stubs celebrated, but another official hit the ring and ordered the restart of the match.
Back from the break, McIntyre and Co. eliminated Strowman in the crowd and, with Angle still in place, Balor had to undergo three beatings. After several minutes, he finally created a separation and a tag in a found Monster Among Men, which unleashed hell.
He overthrew everyone, leading to a final mark at Balor, who delivered a knockout for the win.
Balor, Angle and Strowman def. Corbin, Lashley and McIntyre
If you thought that the formation of the match itself was lazy, the fact that it unfolded into three segments of television and basically told the same story as the female beacon earlier (although its end is happier) made it look like the most creative and inventive thing. .
Balor getting the win for his team and shining light on how he had been helped, but that was needlessly long and did nothing to reinforce the excitement (or lack thereof) of Sunday's matches.
With the repetition comes boredom, and the last 30 minutes of the show flirted dangerously with this little complementary beacon.

Just six days before a championship opportunity against Ronda Rousey at Elimination Chamber, Ruby Riott faced Nikki Cross.
Most of the game was backstage, where Rousey battled Becky Lynch. The female champion Raw said that the Irish Lass Kicker would prove that she is a coward if she does not stand out and apologize to the Authority.
Back in the ring, Riott resists Cross's frenzied attack, including a NXT-assisted ring-apron attack.
She finally cut Cross with a kick from Riott for the victory at the shrine.
Riott has defeated Cross
What was the goal?
Most of the time, the women were ignored because of increased attention to what was going on behind the scenes and Cross lost a solo fight she could not afford at this stage of her young main career.
Of course, Riott was brought to light before her title match on Sunday, but does anyone think she's got a chance to win while even WWE Creative is already totally focused on Lynch against Rousey?
A waste of time on television, but not because of the efforts of the women involved.

Seth Rollins was last seen suffering a heavy defeat by Brock Lesnar, but returned Monday night to face his opponent WrestleMania 35.
Rollins recapped his last year, admitted that he had been injured and that the agony of six F-5 resembled everything he had known. But he promised to enter WrestleMania and defeat Lesnar, a promise that brought the incest's Beast Incarnate lawyer Paul Heyman.
Heyman said that the state of mind was paramount and that if Rollins was not careful, he would be the architect … of his own death.
Rollins promised that he would burn in hell before Lesnar left WrestleMania with his title.
Dean Ambrose interrupted the proceedings and found himself facing his former rival partner. After a momentary discomfort, The Lunatic Fringe said, "Kill the beast," offering his support to the man with whom he has so often traveled on the roads.
Heyman was his typical big self, a compliment that almost makes a disservice to how much he is a phenomenal talker. The man could make sure that a faded meatloaf dinner becomes a five-star dish if necessary. God knows that he has more than once in his recent memory.
Rollins has also improved its promotional game here, delivering it to perfection. With Lesnar's frequent absences on the Road to WrestleMania, the question is whether The Architect can do it consistently. He will have to do this if the program is to enter the critical weeks as warmly as expected.
That said, who had the idea to bring Ambrose to show his support for Rollins? Seriously, who did it?
This writer must be immediately located and driven out of the arena as he is part of a team that has spent weeks telling a story featuring the extremely personal breakup and ensuing quarrel between the two.-a quarrel including The Lunatic Fringe making fun of Roman Reigns cancer diagnosis.
But Monday night, cold heads prevailed. For Ambrose, it was not a character and a complete rejection of several months of television.

The complete denouement of all that had been accomplished in recent weeks has continued while the EC3 has beaten against Dean Ambrose during a rematch last week.
Just seven days after the EC3 won a win that announced its arrival on the main list, the former TNA world champion was found dominating The Lunatic Fringe in competition from simple. He was fierce, determined and relentless in his attack.
He was so successful that he became too confident. A brief second of smiling allowed Ambrose to catch him with a roll-up and win the victory.
Ambroise defeated EC3
Reservation 50-50, your name is the following.
Why reinforce the importance of the EC3 win over the former WWE champion last week if the goal was to make the win the following week?
No one is worried about it, Ambrose looks like a two week old fool and EC3 is the nerd who can not keep up the momentum.
It is doubtful that bookings favor anything other than buying them television time.

After weeks of disappointing championship opportunities, The Revival's Dash Wilder and Scott Dawson had one last chance to win the Raw Tag Team Championships on Monday as they battled Chad Gable and Bobby Roode .
The champions controlled the pace early and capsized the challengers for the first break as Gable delivered a huge moon on the ground.
Dawson and Wilder, however, managed to isolate Gable and control the game away from the opposition. They cut all their hot-tag attempts, used a strong psychology to tell the story and stole the fans from Roode's entry into the match on more than one occasion.
Roode finally hit the ring with a good etiquette and fought against Wilder and Dawson. It was burning until a double team Gory Special put an end to his momentum.
The back and forth movements dominated the final moments of the match and the near-falls reigned supreme. In the end, it's a Shatter Machine challengers to Gable that comes from nowhere that earned them their first long-awaited championship game on the main line-up.
The Revival beat Gable and Roode to win the team titles
Please, give us a revenge on pay-per-view. Give the two teams 30 minutes and let them work a masterpiece that the fans and the band deserve.
It was good. Very well.
It was a showcase for The Revival as vile heels of the old school that know every turn, can tap each opening and manipulate every situation. Better still, they are damn good and do not have to do it, but they do it anyway, which makes it even more exasperating.
It was a showcase for Gable as a crazy and awesome athlete who is neglected in most situations, but who has a ton of resilience and a flawless attitude.
Finally, it was a showcase for Roode, whose main line-up was disappointing but found a new lease on life by working with a younger and more spirited competitor at Gable.
It was an excellent fight with the good result and a match that everyone should be proud of.
The Revival finally won the titles, which has been a long time coming, also congratulations to Wilder and Dawson for succeeding and achieving their goal.

After being threatened earlier in the evening by Triple H and Stephanie McMahon in WrestleMania, Becky Lynch hit the ring for the most important moment of her career. Faced with the humiliating scenario of public apology, she did what was necessary and said "I'm sorry" to her employers.
She then lost little time turning her attention to Ronda Rousey.
The female champion of Raw is headed to the ring for a showdown with Lynch, but was interrupted by Vince McMahon, who came out from behind.
The WWE President announced that The Man had been suspended for 60 days, which would allow him to overtake WrestleMania, and revealed that his replacement was other than Charlotte Flair.
The queen made her way on stage to close the show.
The McMahon family is playing with Lynch, the mess and makes his final win at WrestleMania even more memorable. We have seen this work to perfection in the past years, both in the case of CM Punk and Daniel Bryan. It's a proven formula that has an almost perfect success rate.
The question is whether fans have the patience of today, five years earlier, during Bryan's trip.
Will they sit for weeks on television, repetitive cases of Lynch having the proverbial rug under her feet, hoping to live a magical moment in East Rutherford, New Jersey?
The answer is yes, and segments like this will ultimately be a much bigger and more memorable story when all is said and done.
Why? Because the McMahon have an amazing ability to ensure that all the intrigue in which they are involved is as good and warm as possible.
