The following matches are advertised for the WWE Elimination Chamber event that will be held on Sunday in Houston, Texas at Toyota Center.
-Daniel Bryan vs. AJ Styles vs. Jeff Hardy vs. Kofi Kingston vs. Randy Orton vs. Samoa Joe in an Elimination Chamber match for the WWE Championship.
-Ronda Rousey vs. Ruby Riott for the Raw Women’s Championship.
-The Miz and Shane McMahon vs. Jimmy Uso and Jey Uso for the Smackdown Tag Titles.
-Nia Jax and Tamina vs. Liv Morgan and Sarah Logan vs. Mandy Rose and Sonya Deville vs. Peyton Royce and Billie Kay vs. Sasha Banks and Bayley vs. Naomi and Carmella in an Elimination Chamber match for the new WWE Women’s Tag Titles.
-Bobby Lashley and Lio Rush vs. Finn Balor in a handicap match for the Intercontinental Championship.
-Braun Strowman vs. Baron Corbin in a No DQ match.
-Buddy Murphy vs. Akira Tozawa for the WWE Cruiserweight Championship (Kickoff Show).
Powell’s POV: In a shocking twist, WWE moved the cruiserweight title match to the Kickoff Show since our last update (please note the sarcasm). Randy Orton will be the last person to enter the men’s Elimination Chamber. Sasha Banks & Bayley and Mandy Rose & Sonya Deville will be the first teams to start the women’s Elimination Chamber match. The Elimination Chamber Kickoff Show is scheduled to begin at 5CT/6ET, and the main show will start at 6CT/7ET and is listed as a 3.5 hour show. WWE Network will premiere a one-hour Mark Henry documentary after the show. Jake Barnett and I will host a members’ exclusive Elimination Chamber audio review on Sunday night.
