The next pay-per-view event in line for the WWE is Elimination Chamber. It is one of the most popular gimmick-based shows in the history of the company. Linked with the steel cage structure, this PPV comes up with perhaps the most brutal matches that a gimmick match has to offer. This year, the event is returning on February 17th.
WWE has just confirmed that Ronda Rousey will defend the Raw Women’s Championship against Ruby Riott at Elimination Chamber. Three more matches are likely to make entries on the upcoming episode of Monday Night Raw. All of these matches will be contested over championships.
The mid-card title from WWE Raw should be on the line at Elimination Chamber. Bobby Lashley is likely to defend the Intercontinental Championship against Finn Balor. These two have been in a rivalry for sometimes and a title match seems evident. Also, The Revival vs. Chad Gable & Bobby Roode for the Raw Tag Team Championships.
A third title match might be announced on Smackdown Live for the mid-card title present in the blue brand. It should be a triple threat match which would see R-Truth defend the US Title against Shinsuke Nakamura and Rusev.
It is shaping up to be a historic night which will contain two matches inside the Elimination Chamber structure. The women superstars will step foot inside this structure for the second time. They will fight it out for the inaugural women’s tag team championships. Six teams will be part of this first of its kind bout.
The other Elimination Chamber match will take place for the WWE Championship match from Smackdown Live. Six superstars will compete in this match with Daniel Bryan defending the most prestigious title in sports entertainment. AJ Styles, Samoa Joe, Mustafa Ali, Randy Orton, and Jeff Hardy will be the five challengers.
