However, a brutal pitstop awaits the superstars of Monday Night Raw as the popular Elimination Chamber PPV is scheduled to take place on Sunday, February 25th.
A historic first-time-ever match, a high-stakes Elimination Chamber bout and the bludgeoning undercard of the red brand have set things up perfectly for the final Raw PPV before the show of shows.
WWE has lined up a host of high-stakes matches and segments for tonight that would have a drastic effect on the Chamber card and in this slideshow, we take a look at the five most likely things to expect:
#1 New Challenger for The Miz
As expected from Vince McMahon and co., Roman Reigns was relieved of his IC title duties last week when he unsuccessfully challenged The Miz in what was the final match in the rivalry between the two former WWE Champions.
While The Big Dog will march on his pre-determined quest of dethroning Brock Lesnar, The Miz is in line to receive a fresh new opponent. There are a host of names that deserve a shot at the prestigious IC title, but which lucky star will get the nod from the top brass?
Will it be one of the best NXT call-ups in Elias or could Miztourage be on the verge of deletion at the hands of Woken Matt Hardy?
At the end of the day, Miz could 'get those hands' as Braun Strowman seems like the most likely candidate to go up against the A-lister after the Chamber, according to the dirt sheets and current booking trends.
A wildcard and highly improbable choice would be to have Rey Mysterio answer Miz' call for a new #1 contender. He may have returned for a one-off appearance at the Royal Rumble but that loud pop would have surely enticed WWE into giving him one last contract.
