Who will walk out of the 2018 Elimination Chamber as the number one contender?

The Elimination Chamber always provides a unique multi-person match for fans to watch. It manages to take everything that the Hell in the Cell does, and adds a whole new level of violence to it. It really is a massive looking structure and gives WWE Superstars an opportunity to enthral the fans by being creative, while competing for an ultimate goal.

While in previous years, the Championship has been on the line, this year's event is interesting in that the winner will walk away with an opportunity to compete at WrestleMania for Brock Lesnar's Universal Championship.

While there are seven different competitors this year, there are five that appear to be possible legitimate challengers for the title. The reason for this is we don't anticipate The Miz and Lesnar having a Title vs Title match as part of the main event, which would thus eliminate the A-lister as a choice. Similarly, Elias doesn't seem like he is ready to main-event WrestleMania yet.

So, who stacks up as being above the rest, and the greatest threat to winning the match? Here are five potential winners for the 2018 Elimination Chamber.

#5 John Cena

Cena is always one of the favourites when he is involved in a Championship match

Any time the former sixteen-time World Champion is involved in a Championship match he is automatically considered a threat. After he defeated Finn Balor to qualify for the Elimination Chamber match, there were many that were upset at the result. Whether fans want to see him succeed or fail, each one of them will, more than likely, have an opinion about Cena's involvement in the matchup.

His presence opens up the possibility he will end up winning. It is a tough contingent of talent involved, a group that Cena will have to rise above, if he is the choice to face Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania. He will push whomever he faces to the limit, and is likely to be one of the last men standing.

Many will recall he was in last year's Elimination Chamber as well, losing to the eventual champion, Bray Wyatt.
