Elimination Chamber is considered to be one obnoxious structure present in the WWE. Now, we are in the PG era of the company; this structure is something that belongs to the non-PG gimmick that was innovated back in the days of Attitude Era. The immense popularity around this structure brought it back, last year into the WWE programming.
This year, WWE is hosting it in a bigger way with the historical tag attached to it. For the first time, seven men will get the opportunity to compete in this structure. On the other hand, the match from the women’s division is historic, too since it is the first-time ever match where the female superstars will compete inside the demonic cage.
This is the last Raw-exclusive PPV that will set the lineups for the Wrestlemania 34 season. Two titles from the Raw division will be on the line in this show that will be hosted at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. The live streaming of the show will be available on WWE Network and Sony Ten one/ Ten 1 HD Network in India.
Here is the match card for the evening with the potential outcomes:
RAW Tag Team Title Match
Titus O’Neil and Apollo vs. Cesaro and Sheamus
Prediction: To fill up the match card of the Elimination Chamber PPV, this match was inserted, at the very last moment. Technically saying, Titus Worldwide is a no matchup against the champions who are coveted roster members. So, they are not likely to pick up the titles, at all. Sheamus and Cesaro will win, showing dominance to defend the title at ‘Mania, again.
Asuka vs. Nia Jax (If Jax wins, she’ll be added to the title match at WrestleMania 34)
Prediction: By this matchup, WWE just wants to showcase Asuka’s strong presence on the roster like never before. There’s no way that Jax is going to win the contest and thereby ending the undefeated streak of the former NXT Champion. Rather, Asuka will topple the resistance shown by the Samoan lady while heading into Wrestlemania.
Matt Hardy vs. Bray Wyatt
Prediction: We have not seen the best in this rivalry. It has all the tools to be far better. But, for some unknown reasons, we have not seen the peak form of it. So, despite what happens in this contest, we expect to see a proper culmination of it at Wrestlemania 34. This time around, Matt Hardy is supposed to win since it was Bray Wyatt who outsmarted him around the last couple of times.
Ronda Rousey in-ring contract signing
Prediction: The former UFC Bantamweight Champion will make her appearance as a huge attraction on the show. We could see the initial build-up for her Wrestlemania matchup at the Elimination Chamber PPV. The most likely candidate to be pitted against her is going to be none other than Stephanie McMahon, herself.

Elimination Chamber match for WWE Universal Title #1 Contender
John Cena vs. Elias vs. Braun Strowman vs. Roman Reigns vs. WWE Intercontinental Champion The Miz vs. Seth Rollins vs. Finn Balor
Prediction: You don’t need to be an insider or source-receiver to predict who would win this match. This is the Wrestlemania season, and only one man can feature in the main event spotlight. Yes, it’s Roman Reigns. There will be show-stealing performances by Rollins or Balor. But, in the end, we will find the Big Dog celebrating the victory in his yard while heading into challenging Brock Lesnar for the Universal title.

First-Ever Women’s Elimination Chamber match for the RAW Women’s Title
Bayley vs. Mandy Rose vs. Mickie James vs. Sonya Deville vs. Sasha Banks vs. Champion Alexa Bliss
Prediction: Regardless the hype-ups and the Wrestlemania implications attached to this contest, the winner of the contest is quite predictable, here, too. No one is more likely to win and make history other than the reigning champion, Alexa Bliss. The Goddess will walk out of the first-ever Elimination Chamber match retaining the title after the dust clears to face Asuka at Wrestlemania.
