“The Monster Among Men and The Big Red Machine clash for the right to enter the Elimination Chamber and compete for a Universal Title opportunity against Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania.

During Raw’s Last Man Standing Elimination Chamber Qualifying Match, Braun Strowman upended the stage beneath the Raw announce desk, crushing Kane beneath it.

The Big Red Machine had difficulty breathing following the incident, and was rushed to a local medical facility. However, before Kane could be evaluated by medical personnel in the emergency room, he sat up on the examining table and crawled his way out of the medical facility. Kane has not been seen or heard from since.”

According to Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer, NXT Star Adam Cole almost received a United States Title match at Royal Rumble 2018.

However, the WWE officials decided that it wouldn’t be good for Cole to get pinned in a less than 10 minute match, so they went with Mojo Rawley answering Roode’s open challenge.

Cole went on to enter the Men’s Royal Rumble match as a surprise entrant.
