Apart from the qualifying matches from last night’s WWE Raw, there was a huge main event match confirmed on the show.

Prior to the show coming on the air on the USA Network, it was announced that three men who have already advanced to the Elimination Chamber match will compete in a triple threat match to gain a huge advantage.

The three men involved in the match were John Cena, Elias and Braun Strowman. The major stipulation added to the contest was that the winner will get to enter the Elimination Chamber match at the very last.

This will keep him away from the hard-hitting contest for the better part of time which is a huge upper-hand as the superstar can keep himself away from the steel structure for the maximum time.

In case you don’t know, the rules of a triple threat match state that the superstars involved in it can do anything to each other considering it’s contested under No Disqualification rules.

With that being said, it turned out to be an utter chaos in the final match of WWE Raw in Des Moines, Iowa.

There were a number of spots in the match with the first one being Elias taking his guitar and smashing it off against the back of Strowman to put him down, momentarily.

John Cena took full advantage of it and put him up on his shoulder to hit the AA on the steel steps outside the ring.

The behemoth figure was out of the contest for sometimes due to this but was right back on his feet. He sought redemption of Cena’s action by hitting the Running Powerslam on the franchise player.

Elias, being the cunning one, shoved off Strowman off the ring to get the pinfall win over Cena. He will now be entering the Elimination Chamber at the very last spot.

WWE.com also pointed out the unprecedented advantage reserved by the Drifter:

“Statistically speaking, entrants No. 5 and 6 are most likely to win the Men’s Elimination Chamber Match, and thanks to an upset of titanic proportions on Raw, Elias has positioned himself comfortably as the final Superstar to clock in at The Road to WrestleMania’s most formidable stopover.”

Apart from these three men in the contest, Roman Reigns and The Miz have also become the entrants for this year’s Elimination Chamber, last night.
