The latest episode of the Monday Night RAW kicked off with the newly crowned WWE Champion The Miz celebrating his victory at the Elimination Chamber. However, it was cut short by Bobby Lashley and MVP as they reminded The Miz that he owes The All Mighty a title shot since. The A-Lister tried to talk his way out of defending the title right away but Braun Strowman too threw his hat in the ring. Shane McMahon intervened and set up the night's main event between the monsters of men.
