Note On Elias Pinning Cena On Raw

As seen on WWE Raw last night, the main event saw Elias pin John Cena in a Triple Threat match which included Braun Strowman, to earn the right to enter the Elimination Chamber match last.

According to Dave Meltzer of Wrestling Observer Radio, the decision was made for Elias to pin Cena for two reasons. One was because Elias is slated to feud with Cena during the road to WrestleMania, and the second reason was to protect Braun Strowman who WWE is currently pushing as a top baby face.
