Set for the March 3 episode of Raw is a match between Shayna Baszler and Asuka in what is a preview of the Elimination Chamber match where the two women will compete on March 8. The two wrestlers are former NXT Women's Champions who are the two longest-reigning women's champions in NXT history.

From WWE:

Before they collide along with four other fierce Superstars inside the Elimination Chamber this Sunday, Shayna Baszler and Asuka will clash this Monday night on Raw, as first reported by The New York Post.

Baszler and Asuka briefly came face-to-face last Monday, but now will go at it full fledged this Monday. Both will surely be looking to gain momentum as they prepare to enter the Elimination Chamber and prevail to earn the right to challenge Becky Lynch for the Raw Women’s Championship at WrestleMania. Two things are for sure as this match approaches: Fists are going to fly and Ruby Riott, Sarah Logan, Liv Morgan and Natalya will all have their eyes locked on the screen.

In addition, WWE announced two title matches will also take place on Raw. The first is a rematch between Seth Rollins & Murphy against The Street Profits for the Raw Tag Team Championship. The two teams competed at WWE Super ShowDown in late February where Rollins & Murphy emerged victorious. The rematch is being called a "Now Or Never" match, though WWE did not give further information on what it means.

From WWE:

The Street Profits had the Raw Tag Team Titles within their grasps at WWE Super ShowDown but were unable to dethrone Seth Rollins & Murphy.

Now the bombastic challengers will have one more shot at The Monday Night Messiah and his disciple in a “Now or Never” Tag Team Championship Match on Raw.

Can Montez Ford & Angelo Dawkins achieve that breakthrough moment? Or will the motivating powers of Rollins & Murphy be capable of handling all that smoke?

Lastly, WWE 24/7 Champion Riddick Moss will defend his title, but no opponent was announced.

From WWE:

After Riddick Moss passed his first tests as 24/7 Champion, who will be the next to challenge “Riddy Mo” when he puts his title on the line this Monday night on Raw?

It’s been a whirlwind few weeks for Moss since first appearing on Raw as Mojo Rawley’s “personal offensive lineman.” Their alliance was short-lived as Moss double-crossed Rawley, defeating him for the 24/7 Championship last month.

Moss then escaped a Triple Threat Match against both Rawley and R-Truth two weeks ago, title still intact — not to mention an ambush at the Funko Headquarters earlier in the day.

Already announced for Raw are appearances from WWE Champion Brock Lesnar and WWE Hall of Famer Beth Phoenix.

Fightful will have live coverage of Raw with a post-show podcast afterwards.
