It was reported on the Talking Stick Resort Arena’s Facebook page that the Elimination Chamber PPV is all set to make a return in 2017. The PPV is one of the most memorable on the WWE calendar, because of its trademark, six-man Elimination Chamber match.
The Elimination Chamber PPV was created way back in 2010, and it generally takes place in the month of February, usually a month before WrestleMania.
The last time WWE presented the PPV was in May 2015, which featured two Chamber matches: One for the Tag titles and the other for the Intercontinental Championship. On the same night, Kevin Owens made his WWE debut and defeated John Cena in a singles match.

WWE has not, however, confirmed the news as of now and the WWE Universe would love to hear the news from the horse’s mouth. Making it the last obstacle on the road to WrestleMania would be brilliant, so let’s wait and watch what the company has to say.
