WWE Monday Night RAW Live Results: What Did Roman Reigns Have to Say?

The February 25 episode of Monday Night RAW is set to be a packed show filled with returns.

First, the WWE Universe will see the return of former Universal champion Roman Reigns as he gives an update on his battle with leukemia. What the "Big Dog" will say on Monday is anyone's guess, but with WrestleMania 35 around the corner the speculation as to whether Roman will be on the show looms.

Ric Flair also returns to Monday Night RAW to celebrate his 70th birthday. The Nature Boy has been off WWE television for some time, so fans will get a treat when he makes his appearance on Monday. His daughter Charlotte replaced Becky Lynch in her match against Ronda Rousey for the RAW Women's Championship at WrestleMania, so the WWE Universe will want to keep an eye on the festivities to see if "The Man" crashes the party.

Last week, NXT's four top guys arrived on RAW and SmackDown to show the WWE Universe what they can do. It's unclear whether this is a proper call-up, but it seems that Aleister Black, Ricochet, Tommaso Ciampa and Johnny Gargano are returning to Monday Night RAW.

On this Tuesday's SmackDown Live, Gargano is scheduled to face Cesaro, while Ricochet and Black are scheduled to take on Rusev and Shinsuke Nakamura. What will RAW have planned for them this week?

Finally, the first WWE Women's Tag Team Champions, Bayley and Sasha Banks, are looking for their first challenge. Last week, Tamina and Nia Jax interrupted their celebration. Will the two be granted a title shot against the Boss and Hug Connection?

The Fastlane pay-per-view is only a couple short weeks away, and the card will likely start filling up tonight. Here's everything that happened on tonight's episode of Monday Night RAW.
