The rules of the Gauntlet Match, which took up almost the entire broadcast of Raw, involved two Superstars competing until one was defeated with the victor moving on to challenge another opponent until all seven had entered. Roman Reigns by roll-up to advance.
Rollins, not wanting to quit, put it all on the line and continued to use Cena's moves when he delivered an Attitude Adjustment of his own for a close two count.
Elias would be next, finding the flawless moment to strike as the battered Rollins risked everything with a unsafe gamble that failed to pay off.
- Braun Strowman defeated The Miz. As advertised, the show kicked off with the gauntlet match where all the male WWE Superstars competing in the Elimination Chamber match went up against the other in consecutive matches. Elias capitalized on Rollins' injured knee, and pinned him after Drift Away. Finn Balor followed up and attacked Elias' battered ribs and finished off the job with a Coup de Grace. The 36-year-old talented athlete, who won the first ever Women's Royal Rumble match earlier this year, is still undefeated in the WWE. With nowhere to run and with no chance of a surprise attack to soften up the RAW women's division, the deadliest group in many a year joined forces with RAW women's champion Alexa Bliss to take on Sasha Banks, Bayley and Mickie James in a prelude to the Elimination Chamber that'll feature the lethal ladies.
This week on Raw, John Cena, Roman Reigns, Seth Rollins, Braun Strowman, The Miz, Elias and Finn Balor faced off in a gauntlet match and in the end it was Strowman who picked up the big victory when he defeated The Miz. The Miz (with Miztourage) by pin following the running powerslam to win the Gauntlet Match.
