WWE RAW RESULTS – FEBRUARY 24, 2020
— WWE (@WWE) February 25, 2020
The show in Winnipeg opens with The Viper, Randy Orton slowly coming to the ring to boos. Orton says he needs to apologise. He says it’s no secret that he’s not the most sentimental but lately his emotions have become unbalanced. He says that this morning it has been fifteen years since RAW has been to Winnipeg, back when he was 24 years old. He did a little research and found that, on that episode of RAW, he was the Intercontinental Champion. And he was punched in the face by a certain man; a man that he would eventually look up to and love like a brother. His name was Adam, but we know him better as Edge.
Orton says that, if Edge were in the arena tonight, he’s sure…the fans chant “We Want Edge!” and Orton says Edge can’t be here because of what he did. And nobody will understand why he did what he did, but he’s truly sorry for it.
Canada’s-own Kevin Owens comes to the ring. Owens says that, for the past few months, he’s been dealing with some delusional people. But for tonight he will put those issues aside to deal with Randy. He says he heard Orton’s speech and how he’s sorry, but he doesn’t believe it. He tells Orton to drop the act and admit why he did it. Matt Hardy came out and confronted him and all he got was a vicious beating, twice. So now he’s out asking it.
.@FightOwensFight thought, maybe, just maybe, he’d get in the ring with @EdgeRatedR one day after #RoyalRumble…

Orton says “you don’t want to go down that road.” To which KO says he really does. He says that he remembers what it felt like watching Edge retire. At that time he was already wrestling on the indies, and he was so disappointed to watch Edge retire. Knowing he’d never share the ring with him. But then Edge came back at the Royal Rumble, he was watching backstage and he was a fan again. To see the look in Edge’s eyes when he got what he loved back. But Randy took it all away, so he needs to know why?
Randy says “you think you know me?” He says Edge thought he knew him too. Kevin says he’s right, he doesn’t know him. What he does know however, is that the people are sick of hearing them talk, so why don’t they fight. Randy asks if he wants to fight tonight in Winnipeg? Well he’s on but not right now. Orton drops the mic and leaves.
Charly Caruso is backstage and she interviews Angel Garza and Zelina Vega. Caruso asks what unfinished business they have with Carrillo, and Vega says that he’s just a necessary chore. They have to take out the trash. She says there is family you would be proud of and some you’d rather get rid of, and Angel Garza will be kicking Carrillo to the curb tonight. And when that’s done, there will be not to stop the Lothario from reaching the top of the mountain.
HUMBERTO CARRILLO VS. ANGEL GARZA W/ZELINA VEGA
The match gets underway and they lock-up and go right to the ground and get caught in a super unique hold upside down and slap each other. Carrillo takes a wrist lock but Garza grabs the bottom rope and rolls from the ring.

Garza pushes him in the ring for a near-fall. Garza gets on the apron, but Carrillo kicks him in the face. Garza ducks a dive and superkicks him right back. They then drop each other out with kicks on the apron. The crowd are really getting into this one. Carrillo gets Angel up and kicks him on the apron.

Both men are down as we head to the break.

We get a video package for the developing feud between Becky Lynch and Shayna Baszler.
Ricochet makes his entrance. He’ll be in action after the break.

After the break, Brock Lesnar will be live on Raw.
AJ Styles, Luke Gallows, and Karl Anderson are walking backstage and arguing. AJ tells tehm to stop. He says if by some miracle Ricochet can beat Brock Lesnar this week, then he can have a shot at WrestleMania. The O.C. will plant their flag atop the mountain. Aleister Black walks past and they stop him. Styles says that Black thinks he owns the place after winning a few matches, but they’re The O.C. Anderson and Gallows attack Black and AJ throws him into a door. They walk off and we watch Black climb to his feet and stumble
Paul Heyman and the WWE Champion, Brock Lesnar, come to the ring. Heyman introduces them and the Winnipeg crowd are fired-up for The Beast. Heyman says that all other people in WWE run around trying to think up gimmicks, nicknames, and catchphrases to get themselves over but Brock Lesnar doesn’t need any of that. Brock is himself and he has been the dominant force in WWE since 2003.
Heyman says that Brock doesn’t get in the ring all that often. It’s a special event. And this week he steps in there with Ricochet and he owes him a receipt. But the stakes have never been higher than Super ShowDown. Heyman says you might be asking why, and it’s a good question, even for Candians. Well, because, if Ricochet somehow pulls off a miracle and beats Brock Lesnar, then Ricochet goes on to main event WrestleMania and defend the WWE Championship against Ricochet.
But that’s a big if, because if his aunt had balls she’d be his uncle. What’s actually going to happen is that Brock takes Ricochet to Suplex City, F5’s him, and go on to WrestleMania. Heyman says he’s only ever gotten one spoiler wrong in seven or eight years, but this is his latest: Brock Lesnar will beat Ricochet at Super ShowDown, then go to WrestleMania and take Drew McIntyre to Suplex City and be your WWE Champion, then, now, and forever.
We see Aleister Black stumbling around backstage. He’s going to face Erick Rowan as scheduled.

WINNER: ALEISTER BLACK
Aleister Black walks up the ramp after the match and he gets interviewed on the stage. Black says he got through that match thanks to unbridled rage. And next week his rage will be AJ Styles’ burden to bear.
Drew McIntyre has a sit down interview with Charly Caruso. McIntyre talks about coming into WWE in 2009 and being anointed by Vince McMahon as a future World Champion. How many World Titles has he won since then? None. We see clips during his interview. McIntyre says he got lost in his head and was really down when he was in 3MB. When he was released, that created a huge chip on his shoulder. That really pissed him off.
McIntyre made his return at NXT and wanted to show what he could do. Now two years on the main roster after watching Brock Lesnar run through all competitors in the Royal Rumble, McIntyre’s singular focus was eliminating Lesnar and winning the match. He says that at WrestleMania his potential will be realised.
R-Truth is in the ring for Truth TV. Bobby Lashley and Lana make their entrance, they’ll be interviewed by Truth after the break.
We’re back with Truth Lashley and Lana for Truth TV. R-Truth says he has so many questions to ask them but Lana cuts him off and says they’re not here for his stupid talk show.

Regardless, he has each woman sign the contract individually. Liv Morgan signs it, then gets in Riott’s face and slams the contract down in front of her.
Shayna Baszler’s music hits, and she comes to the ring through the crowd. Baszler grabs the contract and looks at each woman before signing the contract.

Asuka then yells “Bite me.” Asuka and Baszler yell at each other before Natalya takes Asuka down. Morgan then jumps over the table and attacks Riott. A big brawl breaks out, and the production crew clears the ring of the furniture. Baszler gets in the ring and laughs as everyone else clears out.
Becky Lynch comes out and runs into the ring where she and Baszler come to blows. Big takedown from Baszler, followed by ground and pound until they’re pulled apart by officials. They manage to break apart and fight again but are eventually pulled apart.
