WWE Monday Night RAW Results: Who Crosses Paths with Randy Orton Next?

It's the final Monday Night RAW before the Super Showdown event in Saudi Arabia and the WWE is having an interesting time juggling the build towards that, Elimination Chamber in March and WrestleMania in April.

To start things off, fans will see Brock Lesnar live on Monday Night RAW tonight as he gets ready for his WWE Championship match against Ricochet at Super Showdown. The last time Lesnar was on RAW he reminded his opponent who he's facing when he hit the F-5 just after Ricochet won his match in the main event.

With Drew McIntyre waiting for a match with the WWE Champion at WrestleMania, is Lesnar poised to face Ricochet on Thursday or will he get caught looking too far ahead?

Randy Orton took out Edge the day after his miraculous return, and he then injured Matt Hardy two Mondays in a row. With both in his rearview mirror, what will Orton do next? The Viper doesn't have a scheduled match at Super Showdown, so fans may see a new feud for Orton as he heads towards Elimination Chamber and WrestleMania.

RAW Women's Champion Becky Lynch called out Shayna Baszler last week after the "Submission Magician" attacked her a few weeks back. Baszler is scheduled to enter the Elimination Chamber to challenge for a spot at WrestleMania, but can either woman wait until then to square off or will see both combustible combatants go at it tonight?

Here's everything that happened on the February 24 episode of Monday Night RAW.
