This RAW in a Nutshell gives us a theme in the form of a question: who will qualify for the Elimination Chamber?

And by extension, who greatly improves their chances of heading to WrestleMania.

We found out last week on RAW that the women would enter the Chamber trying to get a crack at Rhea Ripley.

All of those RAW results can be found here.

But, we had that kind of topped on Friday’s SmackDown. On that show, the leadership confirmed that we would see the men’s Chamber identify the next challenger for Seth Rollins.

That was the next move following the WrestleMania press conference from last week.

So, now it’s time to see who steps inside. 2 got in on Friday…more will on RAW tonight.

Let’s get into it…

RAW In A Nutshell: Who Will Qualify For The Elimination Chamber?

Lets crack open this Nutshell and see what happens!

Best Match of the night:

Zayn and Nakamura was the best. No shock, if anyone remembers what those two did in NXT.

Worst match of the night:

Not sure if I really want to pick one.

But, if I have to? Not sure, but I would say I expected more out of Liv and Zoey.

Crowd Chants of the Night:

Lots of Rocky sucks and we want Cody chants.

Star of the Night

Cody Rhodes and Seth Rollins.

Tip of the cap to Sami Zayn too, for that matter

Spot of the Night:

Jobber of the Night:

Truth had a really good showing, but he was set up to be beaten down by the Judgement Day.

That after he lost to JD McDonagh.

Upset of the Night:

Can I even call New Day and Jey Uso over Imperium an upset?

It’s not much of one, if it is…but it’s my choice.

Holy Sh** Moment of the Night:

Rollins and Rhodes were once fierce rivals.

Maybe they are still.

But after the events and words from the past couple weeks, Rollins has Cody’s back.

Or, as the champ put it, he is more than willing to be Cody’s shield.

If only WWE could pull in Dean Ambrose. Or Dustin Rhodes.

Perhaps both. It’s fun to dream.

Botch of the night:

Was there one?

Commentary of the night:

McAfee really was on air tonight talking about whether or not Big Bronson Reed can wipe his butt?!

LOL Moment of the night:

Truth is a national treasure.

Now he thinks DIY is DX.

The craziest thing? He didn’t even look bad in the ring.

Noteworthy Moment:

Am I crazy, or did that Cody-Sami hug feel like foreshadowing?

Like…somewhere down the line, those two won’t be hugging it out as much…

Overall lowlights:

Not really anything to be down about tonight.

If you pushed for something? Maybe that some winners were expected, and a swerve could have been nice.

Like, LA Knight and Lashley winning was expected. Throwing Bronson Reed in would have been nice, or even going with Ivar.

Overall highlights:

The top bit of the show was, without a doubt, the Cody Rhodes promo. Seth Rollins amplified it.

That did it for me, at least.

But the qualifiers continue to be strong matches, and with just one more RAW until we head to Perth, things are clicking.

After the final bell:

Well the qualifying for Elimination Chamber is well underway, with more spots filled than not.

Next week is the last chance to qualify before everyone heads to the land of Oz. Should be a big go-home show.
