As the road to WrestleMania ramps up, Raw was full of action but the match between Bianca Belair and Doudrop reportedly created a lot of buzz backstage.
Raw opened with WWE Champion Brock Lesnar going back and forth on the microphone with his former advocate Paul Heyman. Heyman informed The Beast Incarnate that he would be defending his title at Madison Square Garden before WrestleMania, with Lesnar informing Heyman that he’d see him and his Mania opponent Roman Reigns on Friday at SmackDown.
Later in the evening, Bianca Belair came to the ring fresh off her win inside the Elimination Chamber. That win means Belair will face Raw Women’s Champion Becky Lynch at WrestleMania 38 and Lynch soon joined Belair as the two women traded barbs.
This ultimately led to Bianca Belair taking on Doudrop in one-on-one action. With Lynch watching on from ringside at the commentary table, Belair overcame the size disadvantage to put away the Scottish star with the K.O.D.
Mike Johnson of PWInsider has reported that the match between Belair and Doudrop had “a lot of people raving” backstage with both women impressing in their outing.
The night’s main event saw Kevin Owens team up with Seth ‘Freakin’ Rollins to defeat RK-Bro in tag team action. That win means Owens and Rollins have been added to the Raw Tag Team Championship match in two weeks with Alpha Academy defending their gold against both Owens and Rollins and RK-Bro.
