Jey Uso has backup. Uso’s pursuit of intercontinental champion Gunther labeled him as Imperium’s No. 1 enemy. Uso found friendship in his longtime foes, The New Day. Kofi Kingston and Xavier Woods have existing issues with Imperium, leading to a six-man tag team match this week on Monday Night Raw.
Trouble started last week when Uso interrupted Gunther’s 600-day championship reign celebration. This led to a three-on-one assault by Imperium. Fortunately for Uso, New Day has a bone to pick with Imperium as well. Kingston and Woods ran off Imperium, paving the way for a heated six-man tag team match on Monday.
Three Elimination Chamber qualifier matches are also booked. Liv Morgan and Zoey Stark will compete to secure a slot at the Feb. 24 pay-per-view. The winner will join Becky Lynch and Bianca Belair in the match. SmackDown will have a strong presence on Monday following last week’s announcement of a men’s Elimination Chamber match. LA Knight vs. Ivar and Bobby Lashley vs. Bronson Reed will crown two participants in a match currently featuring Drew McIntyre and Randy Orton. The winners of the men’s and women’s chamber matches will challenge for the world heavyweight and women’s world titles, respectively, at WrestleMania 40.
CBS Sports is with you all night with recaps and highlights of all the action from Rupp Arena in Lexington beginning at 8 p.m. ET.
