– Tonight’s RAW kicked off with Sami Zayn addressing his loss to Undisputed WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns at Elimination Chamber 2023.
Sami called Kevin Owens to the ring and apologized to him for not listening to him about The Bloodline, and thanked him for his help at Elimination Chamber.
Zayn asked Owens for his help to take down The Bloodline. Owens told Sami that he told him in November that he was done with him and that it still stands.
Kevin said if Sami wants help, he should ask Jey Uso.
After this promo, Baron Corbin attacked Zayn.

– During an interview with Byron Saxton, Rhea Ripley said Charlotte Flair is still living in 2020 and refuses to acknowledge her as the best female in WWE today.
Dominik Mysterio said his father is in a match on SmackDown this Friday, so he might as well show up along with Ripley (who will be there for her face-off with Charlotte).

– Cody Rhodes came to the ring and was immediately interrupted by Paul Heyman.
Heyman is talking from the backstage area and is wearing a neck brace because Kevin Owens hit him with a Stunner at Elimination Chamber.
Paul got straight to the point and said Cody can’t beat Roman Reigns at WrestleMania 39.
However, he talked about the scenario if Cody somehow manages to defeat The Tribal Chief for the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship.
Heyman said Cody is going to be on the road 200 days a year, doing TV & Live Events, then doing media, doing Skype interviews, doing charity work, doing overseas promotion for WWE, which would mean he would be busy about 305 days a year.
The rest 60 days, he won’t be at home despite being home – which his brother Dustin Rhodes would know as that’s what Dustin said about their father Dusty Rhodes.
Paul said this will also affect Cody’s marriage with Brandi. However, he’s not going to say that Roman is going to give Brandi a call to comfort her, because Reigns is a happily married man. However, Heyman said he’s not a happily married man.
Heyman ended by saying that Cody’s WrestleMania dreams are going to turn into his own personal nightmare.
Paul’s mind games got to Cody and he got angry. Cody sent a message to Roman and said he better not send Paul the next time and wants to see him face-to-face.
Rhodes ended the segment by saying:
“I have to finish the story. I beat you at WrestleMania.”

– Bayley held a “Ding Dong, Hello!” segment with WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions Dakota Kai & IYO SKY.
Bayley called them the greatest Women’s Tag Team Champions of all time.
Becky Lynch then came out and so did WWE Hall Of Famer Lita. Becky & Lita then challenged Dakota & IYO to a Title match.
Bayley said they can’t just ask for a Title match. Becky said Lita is a former 4-time Women’s Champion and one of the greatest of all time.
Becky then talked about herself being a 6-time Women’s Champion, winner of the 1st ever women’s WrestleMania main event and also one of the greatest of all time, and that’s enough to ask for a Title match.
Lita then asked if Dakota & IYO are scared, and if they really are the greatest Women’s Tag Team Champions of all time, then they should have no problem in proving it.
Bayley then accepted the challenge on behalf of her Damage CTRL members.
Lita & Becky then snatched the Titles away from them and posed. This match will take place on next week’s RAW.
