4 unlikely things that may happen at WWE Elimination Chamber 2019
Elimination Chamber 2019 will take place this Sunday on February 17, 2019. The Kickoff Show will start at 6 PM and will be live on a number of platforms including the WWE Network and WWE's Youtube Channel.
The Kickoff Show will feature a Cruiserweight Championship Match between Cruiserweight Champion Buddy Murphy and the number one contender Akira Tozawa. The main show will stream live on the WWE Network, starting at 7 PM.
The match card includes a no disqualification match between Braun Strowman and Baron Corbin, a handicap match for the Intercontinental Championship match between Finn Balor and the team of Bobby Lashley & Lio Rush, a Raw Women's Championship match between Raw Women's Champion Ronda Rousey and number one contender Ruby Riott, a SmackDown Tag Team Championship match between SmackDown Tag Team Champions The Miz & Shane McMahon and the number one contender the Usos, an Elimination Chamber tag team match for the inaugural Women's Tag Team Championship, and an Elimination Chamber match for the WWE Championship.
#4. The WWE Championship main events a dual-branded pay per view for the first time in years
Daniel Bryan is set to defend the WWE Championship against Randy Orton, Jeff Hardy, Kofi Kingston, Samoa Joe, and AJ Styles. Randy Orton is already confirmed to be the last competitor in this matchup. Out of all of the matches that are scheduled to take place at Elimination Chamber, only three of them have truly been booked as an important.
Finn Balor vs Bobby Lashley & Lio Rush, Braun Strowman vs Baron Corbin, and Shane McMahon and the Miz vs the Usos are all filler. The only 3 matches that will truly affect WrestleMania are Ronda Rousey vs Ruby Riott for the Raw Women's Championship, the Elimination Chamber match for the inaugural women's tag team titles, and the Elimination Chamber match for the WWE Championship.
Out of all of these 3 matches, the WWE Championship has the best chance of being a great match. Therefore, the WWE Title will likely finally main event a pay per view.
