The final stop towards WrestleMania 38 will be Elimination Chamber in Saudi Arabia, where Roman Reigns, Brock Lesnar, and Becky Lynch will compete.
A Elimination Chamber wrestling match for the WWE championship and Roman Reigns defending the Universal Championship against Goldberg headline the event’s stellar card. We can anticipate the same kind of Elimination Chamber that fans have grown to expect from WWE events in Saudi Arabia in terms of nostalgia and prior stars.
This PPV will likely serve as a platform for many final pre-WrestleMania title defenses, and the booking decisions here will have long-term consequences for WWE programming.
So, let’s hope that WWE’s chess moves at Elimination Chamber are correct with these clever creative decisions.
Due in large part to his outstanding performance at Royal Rumble against Roman Reigns, Seth Rollins has emerged as a fan favorite in recent months and has become one of the company’s best performers overall. Now, at Elimination Chamber, WWE has to go all-in on Seth Rollins.
If you want to convert an in-ring workhorse into an appealing star, then this is the match for you. Previously, Kofi Kingston’s epic and unexpected SmackDown gauntlet match on SmackDown has inspired the “Kofi Mania” movement and helped him win the WWE championship at WrestleMania 35.
When Rollins competes in an Elimination Chamber match against a star-studded field, he has the opportunity to repeat his WrestleMania run with a stunning performance.
In recent years, there have been few female wrestlers who have been able to get to the top of the WWE ranks, with arguably the exception of Bianca Belair.
At Elimination Chamber, just one fan favorite can halt that trend: Naomi. SmackDown’s former Women’s Champion has the finest ongoing storyline in WWE’s often under-booked women’s division as she tries to take down Sonya Deville. It’s not exactly WrestleMania, but Elimination Chamber is still a big show that gives WWE the chance to move Naomi up the card.
In spite of the ridiculous arm-tied-to-back stipulation that would make it easy for WWE to award the victory to Ronda Rousey, who will soon be the main event of WrestleMania, Naomi should be the one to pin Sonya Deville in the star-studded tag team match. As a result, both Charlotte Flair and Rousey are shielded as they prepare for their WrestleMania showdown while Naomi has a massive momentum-building moment.
After his Elimination Chamber encounter against Roman Reigns, Goldberg’s WWE contract expires, and his schedule implies that he will not appear at WrestleMania.
That may also be for the best. In recent years, WWE has paid Goldberg a lot of money for something that has been a boring and predictable series of bouts and uninspired promos. If Goldberg is going to be used by WWE in any capacity, he should only be used to promote the company’s main roster.
With Reigns in the middle of a tremendous reign as Universal Champion and Goldberg in his prime, it is exactly what needs to happen in the Elimination Chamber. At WrestleMania 38, Roman Reigns should annihilate Goldberg in the Elimination Chamber before facing Brock Lesnar in the main event.
