Welcome to Wrestling Inc.'s results of "WWE Raw" on February 27, 2023, coming to you live from the Van Andel Arena in Grand Rapids, Michigan!

Dakota Kai and IYO SKY of Damage CTRL will be putting their Women's Tag Team Championship on the line against former multi-time Women's Champion Lita and "The Man" Becky Lynch. Lynch has been at odds with Damage CTRL over the past couple of months and recruited the help of Lita to challenge for the title last week during "Ding Dong, Hello!".

One half of the Undisputed WWE Tag Team Champions, Jimmy Uso, will be teaming up with Solo Sikoa to take on The Street Profits. Tensions between Jimmy and his brother Jey have been on the up and up over the past few weeks, as Jey has been ambiguous as to where his loyalties lie amongst the drama between Sami Zayn and The Bloodline.

Asuka has been dominating the women's division as of late, defeating the likes of Liv Morgan, Nikki Cross, and Chelsea Green, and winning the Women's Elimination Chamber Match to earn herself a shot at Bianca Belair's "Raw" Women's Championship at "WrestleMania 39". Tonight, she looks to score another win when she goes one-on-one with Carmella. Elsewhere in the women's division, Candice LeRae looks to settle her differences with Piper Niven following a heated backstage confrontation a couple of weeks ago.

MVP and Omos challenged Brock Lesnar to a match at WrestleMania last week and told him to appear on tonight's show to give them an answer. "The Beast Incarnate" last appeared at "Elimination Chamber" when he lost to "The All Mighty" Bobby Lashley via disqualification.

The Miz has not had a clear path to "The Grandest Stage of Them All" this year, but was gifted an envelope by his wife, Maryse last week and was elated by its contents. He will be revealing what was inside the envelope on an episode of "MizTV".

Before he faces Roman Reigns for the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship at WrestleMania, Cody Rhodes will be facing Chad Gable. Rhodes secured his spot in the main-event of WWE's biggest Premium Live Event of the year after winning the 2023 Men's Royal Rumble Match.

The Street Profits' music hits, and Angelo Dawkins and Montez Ford head down to the ring with a mic in hand. The pair mock Jimmy and Sikoa, then make fun of Jey Uso's absence from ringside. Ford and Dawkins call him out and say he can't blame him for staying away because he's tired of keeping The Bloodline together. Ford says Jimmy and Sikoa have the nerve to come on their show to do Reigns' dirty work. Jimmy tells them to keep Reigns' name out of their mouth, and The Profits say they want the smoke. The pair then go after Jimmy and Sikoa and send them out of the ring.

MVP gets in the ring and sits down on the other couch. Lesnar says he wasn't insulted by what he said last week and tells him to give him the pitch. MVP says Lesnar is "The Beast", and if his opponent is hit with an F-5 or suplex, then they are done. He says if you put your hands on a giant, then the giant puts his hands back on you. He says a beast can subdue any man, but a giant will conquer a beast.

Lesnar tells him he made a damn good case and accepts his challenge, then says they should shake on it and drink on it. The pair shake on it and MVP pops open a bottle of champagne. Lesnar tells him not to do that, then says he grows "the good stuff". He pulls a canteen out of the inside pocket of his vest and makes a toast. He takes a swig of his canteen, then offers it to MVP. MVP says he would rather drink the champagne, and Lesnar shoves the canteen against his chest. MVP takes it out of fear of being attacked and asks what's in it.
