WWE Raw Results 2/12 - Elimination Chamber Qualifiers, Imperium Vs. Jey Uso & New Day

Welcome to Wrestling Inc.'s results for "WWE Raw" on February 12, 2024, coming to you live from the Rupp Arena in Lexington, Kentucky!

The next entrants in the Elimination Chamber matches will be determined tonight, as LA Knight takes on Ivar while Bobby Lashley squares off with Ivar in a pair of Men's Qualifier matches, and Zoey Stark goes one-on-one with Liv Morgan in a Women's Qualifier match. The winners will join Randy Orton and Drew McIntyre, and Bianca Belair and Becky Lynch on February 24 as they vie for an opportunity to face Seth "Freakin" Rollins and Rhea Ripley for the World Heavyweight and Women's World Championships respectively at WrestleMania 40.

Jey Uso will be joining forces with New Day's Xavier Woods and Kofi Kingston to go head-to-head with GUNTHER, Giovanni Vinci, and Ludwig Kaiser of Imperium. GUNTHER and Jey found themselves face-to-face during last week's edition of "Raw" during the reigning Intercontinental Champion's 600+ day celebration as titleholder. Given their ongoing issues with Kaiser and Vinci, Woods and Kingston saved Jey from a beatdown at their hands during such.

Last week, R-Truth cost JD McDonagh his match against The Miz after capturing his attention. Tonight, McDonagh looks to exact his retribution as he faces Truth in singles competition.

Additionally, per WWE's event page, the aforementioned Ripley and Lynch, Cody Rhodes, and Ricochet are advertised to be in town.

Back from the break, Cody Rhodes makes his way down to the ring.

Seth Rollins Makes A Proposal To Cody Rhodes

Rhodes asks Lexington what they want to talk about, then says they could talk about how he'll be challenging Roman Reigns for the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship at WrestleMania 40. He says it took him a while to even be able to say that, and the only reason he can say that is because of the fans. He says they made their voices heard and he's a passionate guy about WWE and his legacy in the company. He says he doesn't want to be emotional because that would make him a crybaby, but the one man who didn't want to hear that fans wanted him in the main event of WrestleMania was The Rock.

Rhodes then throws it to a clip of The Rock calling his fans "Cody Crybabys" on "The Pat McAfee Show", and admits to being a fan of The Rock. He says everyone has been a fan of The Rock at some point in their lives, but he slapped him during the WrestleMania 40 Kickoff Show and he recognized the malevolentness in his eyes. He tells The Rock that he'll hit him back.

Seth "Freakin" Rollins' music hits and he makes his way down to the ring. Rhodes thanks Rollins for coming to his aid during the WrestleMania 40 Kickoff Show, and Rollins tells him that he's welcome. He says as much as he was looking forward to facing him for the World Heavyweight Championship at WrestleMania, he understands why Rhodes chose Roman Reigns. He says millions of people around the world want to see Rhodes finish his story, and he needs to do such. He says the landscape on the other side of WrestleMania will be dark if Rhodes loses to Reigns once again because Reigns will have more power, show up less, and defend the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship. He tells Rhodes that he's the last hope of taking the power and giving it to the people.

Rollins asks Rhodes what his plan is, and reminds him that he was screwed out of the titles by the rest of The Bloodline. He says Rhodes fought his way back to the WrestleMania main event, but the deck is still stacked against him and the bar has been raised. He says Rhodes is dealing with the biggest star and the most influential man in the entire industry, The Rock. He says he came out to the ring to tell Rhodes that he doesn't have to fight this battle alone. He recalls Rhodes telling Reigns he wants to take everything from him, and says he wants to do the same. He says that's why he stepped out at the WrestleMania 40 Kickoff Show, and says he's tired of arrogant individuals making choices with no consequences.

Rollins admits to being partially responsible for the man Reigns is today during their days in The Shield, but he didn't imagine the monster he would become. Rollins says that monster now has two heads, and when it comes to fighting Reigns and The Rock, there is only one man on Earth uniquely suited to be Rhodes' Shield: himself.

She says she loves it, and recalls being 15 the first time she stepped foot in a wrestling ring.

She says on the flip side, she's missed out on milestones, explaining her various injuries to her daughter, and watching her compete in the Women's Elimination Chamber on February 24. She says her daughter will also get to see the brutality she's capable of, and says she's never been more obsessed then she is now with getting her title back. She says that starts with winning the Women's Elimination Chamber match, and while fans think no one can beat Rhea Ripley, she's not anyone and Ripley's never faced anyone like her. She grabs a glass of lemonade and makes a toast to Rhea Ripley. She tells her to enjoy her last few weeks as champion.

Nia Jax's music hits and she makes her way down to the ring. She tells Lynch that despite having differences, she has an immense amount of respect for her. She says she would be lucky if her mom was half the mom Lynch is, and says she would lead by example if she became a mother one day. She says Lynch will win the Women's Elimination Chamber and go on to WrestleMania 40 with her passion for her daughter in the same way that nothing will stop her from defeating Ripley at Elimination Chamber to go on to face her.
