In one of the best Monday Night Raw in years, WWE got their fans ready for the Elimination Chamber pay-per-view this weekend by having all seven superstars that will be in the Elimination Chamber match compete in a gauntlet match.
Seth Rollins, Roman Reigns, John Cena, Finn Balor, The Miz, Elias, and Braun Strowman all took part in the gauntlet match, the same seven superstars who will compete inside the Elimination Chamber this Sunday for a Universal title match against Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania 34.
Arguably the best parts of the gauntlet match happened in the opening two parts of the clash when Seth Rollins faced Roman Reigns and when Rollins took on John Cena. The Kingslayer shined in both matches, but Cena pulled out a move in his match that WWE fans absolutely loved.
During the second part of the gauntlet match after The Kingslayer had eliminated The Big Dog, Cena had Rollins in his arms across his chest, the same position he usually has a superstar before throwing them on his shoulders to perform the Attitude Adjustment.
However, instead of doing the AA, The Leader of the Cenation flipped The Kingslayer over one of his shoulders and used gravity to perform a Stunner, a Stunner which many WWE fans enjoyed.
Rollins though would go on to beat Cena with a Blackout, meaning he had just defeated both Reigns and Cena, two of WWE's biggest babyfaces over the past 15 years, cleanly and on the same night after one another.
Oddly, throughout his match with Rollins, Cena showed a lot of heel tendencies, as he taunted The Kingslayer several times throughout the match before he was eventually eliminated. He even made excuses for his loss in his post-match interview.
Cena isn't expected to win the Elimination Chamber this weekend either, as that honor is expected to be given to Reigns. The Leader of the Cenation instead is expected to soon begin his feud with The Undertaker that will lead to a dream match between the two at this year's WrestleMania.
It will be interesting to see if Cena continues this heel-like behaviour at the Elimination Chamber this weekend. It's unlikely to lead to a full-out heel turn for him, but it could mean he'll be rather arrogant and possibly egotistical during his WrestleMania feud with The Phenom.
