Women’s Elimination Chamber Match: Bianca Belair vs. Rhea Ripley vs. Liv Morgan vs. Doudrop vs. Nikki A.S.H. vs. Alexa Bliss
The Raw Women’s Championship match at WrestleMania 38 will be determined this Saturday. The Women’s Elimination Chamber match will feature six competitors fighting for the right to be the new No. 1 contender.
Bianca Belair, Rhea Ripley, Liv Morgan, Doudrop and Nikki A.S.H were the first five participants announced for the match. This past episode of Raw, the five wrestlers competed in a gauntlet match to determine who would enter the Elimination Chamber match last. Despite Ripley running through Nikki A.S.H, Morgan and Doudrop, Belair defeated Ripley to win the match and will now exit her pod last.
But on that very same episode, Alexa Bliss underwent her final therapy session and was declared “cured.” Afterward, she announced that she will take the vacant spot in the Elimination Chamber match.
Bliss being added to the match does add intrigue, and she could be a strong opponent for Lynch at WrestleMania. But, it makes too much sense for Belair to win. Belair lost the SmackDown Women’s Championship to Lynch in a matter of seconds at SummerSlam. With this win at Elimination Chamber, she will get her one-on-one match against Lynch, where she has her chance to finally dethrone her for the Raw Women’s Championship.
Winner: Bianca Belair
WWE Championship Elimination Chamber Match: Bobby Lashley (c) vs. Brock Lesnar vs. Seth Rollins vs. A.J. Styles vs. Riddle vs. Austin Theory
Does Brock Lesnar get his revenge at Elimination Chamber?
After winning the WWE Championship at Day 1, Lesnar took on Bobby Lashley in a dream match at the Royal Rumble. But, Lesnar was attacked by Roman Reigns after the referee was knocked out and his advocate Paul Heyman betrayed him. That allowed Lashley to pin Lesnar to win the WWE Championship for the second time. Yet, Lesnar entered the Men’s Royal Rumble match at the No. 30 spot and won.
The following episode of Raw, Lesnar revealed to Lashley that he was challenging Reigns for the Universal Championship at WrestleMania, but he wanted to make it a title vs. title match. Lesnar was added to the Elimination Chamber match alongside Lashley and Seth Rollins, with A.J. Styles, Riddle and Austin Theory qualifying for the match later in the night.
With there being so much uncertainty as to what the WWE Championship match at WrestleMania could be, it feels as though WWE will make the Reigns-Lesnar match even bigger by having Lesnar walk in as the Royal Rumble winner and WWE Champion. But, there is always the possibility that Reigns or the Uso’s can interfere to cause Lesnar’s elimination from the Chamber match, allowing Lashley or Rollins to win.
Unless they have something huge planned for the WWE Championship match at WrestleMania (Cody Rhodes as a potential challenger?), we’re picking Lesnar to win.
Winner: Brock Lesnar
