WWE Monday Night RAW #1448
Ort: Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg, Florida, USA
First broadcast: February 22, 2021
This week, RAW kicks off with a look back at the Elimination Chamber. Drew McIntyre was able to prevail and defended his WWE Championship in the Chamber. After the match, however, the Scot was taken apart by Bobby Lashley. Miz used this state of the champion and redeemed his Money in the Bank suitcase and was crowned WWE Champion again!
The Miz sounds. Fireworks and a festive ring greet the new champion, who welcomes us to a new edition of Miz TV. It is a special “Championship Edition”. Nobody thought it was possible. From a possible layoff to a WWE Champion.
The y all came, but no one stayed. Batista, John Cena, Triple H, Edge, Big Show, etc. Miz specifically addresses Edge, reminding him of the argument from two weeks ago, in which Edge agreed that he had the brains necessary for a successful cash-in. Now he is the first and only “Two-Time Grand Slam Champion” in the entire WWE. Suddenly Bobby Lashley’s music starts. This comes out together with MVP. Lashley lost his United States Championship to Riddle last night and was in a very bad mood accordingly. MVP congratulates our new champion on the big win, but there is a small part of the story missing where Lashley prepared that victory. This little “collaboration” is now being continued. Lashley is the first to get a title match for his “help”. Miz of course agrees, but there is just a lot to do right now. “Fastlane”, “Wrestlemania”, “Miz & Mrs.”. But Lashley doesn’t want to hear any more. Miz has an hour to give him his promised title match. It is clear that Lashley Miz will otherwise be promoted to the hospital.
The re are 43 minutes left before Lashley’s ultimatum.
(Non-Title) Singles Match
United States Champion Riddle won against John Morrison via pin after Bro-Derek.

The Miz’s decision.
The time is running…

-During the match, T-Bar and Mace seemed almost certain to win. However, Ali had forbidden the two of them to pin in order to beat New Day up any further.
The re are exactly 4 minutes until Lashley’s ultimatum!
The former Universal Champion is obviously not in a good mood. Strowman also wants a title match. That is the least, after he was passed over by Pearce and Shane. Speaking of the devil. Shane McMahon’s music is playing! He already has a microphone with him and starts dancing around the men. He thinks that first everyone has to calm down. Shane explains to Strowman why he wasn’t part of the Elimination Chamber. Former WWE champions should now be part of the match. Strowman is still dissatisfied. If there isn’t a title match, then Strowman at least wants a match against Bobby Lashley. Shane thinks the idea is great and if Strowman wins, he’ll be part of the Triple Threat Match between
The n everyone involved disappears and the segment ends with a star down between Lashley and Strowman.
The Miz. So later that evening, Lashley and Strowman meet up. If the latter wins, we’ll have a triple threat match next week for the WWE Championship. If Lashley wins, the singles match will remain.

Randy Orton will speak out about Alexa Bliss after the interruption.
Another video about Rhea Ripley is playing.
The “Viper” is backstage and talks about his defeats in the Gauntlet Match and in the Elimination Chamber. Usually Orton doesn’t really know the feeling of losing. However, he’s obviously distracted and reminds us of TLC and the segment where Randy lit the “Fiend”. After that, everything seemed to be done. His distraction therefore comes from Alexa Bliss. Here, too, we get a look back at last week, when Bliss sat in the middle of a pentagram. Suddenly Orton is feeling very bad and he spits out a blood-like substance. Randy then disappears, leaving speechless commentators.

She wants him to go home at last. Ric says that he saw a lot of potential in Lacey Evans and therefore wanted to motivate her.
The Hall of Famer also wanted to motivate Charlotte. He emphasizes that he only had the best in mind for the women’s division. Charlotte doesn’t buy the story from him and is sure that he only wants the spotlight for himself as the Nature Boy. She is sorry, but Charlotte would like to continue her career without him in order to continue her legacy as Charlotte Flair.
