The Elimination Chamber pay-per-view event takes place on Sunday, February 25th at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada and will air on the WWE Network and some traditional pay-per-view outlets. As advertised, the show kicked off with the gauntlet match where all the male WWE Superstars competing in the Elimination Chamber match went up against the other in consecutive matches.
Gauntlet Match: Match #1: Seth Rollins def.
The current belief in wrestling circles is that "The Big Dog" Roman Reigns is now earmarked to face Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania and finally defeat "The Beast Incarnate".
Things have certainly changed for former WWE World Heavyweight Champion Jack Swagger. This left Cena open for the Curb Stomp which Rollins nailed for the victory.
After a failed Phoenix Splash, Cena delivered an Attitude Adjustment, but instead of going for the pin, he rolled Rollins up for a second Attitude Adjustment that was reversed.More news: Israel hits targets in Gaza after soldiers hurt
In round three, Elias rushed to the ring to try and quickly defeat a battered and exhausted Rollins who still wouldn't quit.
The Miz, despite his best efforts against The Monster Among Men, was no match for the towering giant and was defeated with a Running Powerslam. Elias brought his run to an end with a Drift Away as Rollins spent his energy on high risk maneuvers.
Irish star Finn Balor was the next wrestler in, and he defeated Elias after seventeen more minutes of action. Look for Finn Balor to possibly pin The Miz, setting up an Intercontinental Title match in New Orleans.
As seen on Monday's episode of RAW, Seth Rollins got pinfall victories over both John Cena and Roman Reigns in the gauntlet match in the opening of the show. Also, before the RAW Women's Championship is decided in the first ever Women's Elimination Chamber Match this Sunday, the six women who will compete for the title would be in a 6-Woman Tag Match on RAW as the team of Sasha Banks, Bayley, and Mickie James would face the team of RAW Women's Champion Alexa Bliss, Mandy Rose, & Sonya Deville.
