5 things to watch for at WWE Elimination Chamber 2018 event
The 2018 Elimination Chamber pay-per-view is fast approaching us and scheduled for Sunday, February 25th, which means it's time for us to start thinking about what will go down at the event and what special moments to look out for.
Generally speaking, almost every event has its fair share of key notes WWE wishes to hit—whether it's pushing a specific Superstar, instituting a swerve in a storyline, crowning a new champion or just setting up water cooler talk for the next day.
With this show, there are a few things in particular that may be happening that will have some serious consequences for the Road to WrestleMania and what transpires on Monday Night Raw over the coming months.
Here's a look at five things to keep your eyes out for when preparing yourself for Elimination Chamber 2018.
#5 The Miz's elimination is important
It's pretty safe to say The Miz isn't going to win the Elimination Chamber match, so if you're going into this event with hopes of that happening, you're awaiting disappointment.
What will be intriguing to watch, though, is who The Miz interacts with during this match and what eliminations are surrounding him.
It's extremely likely that the person who takes him out of this match will end up being the person who feuds with him for the Intercontinental Championship at WrestleMania 34, since pinning him here will cause enough contention between the two to prompt another confrontation down the line.
The Miz will probably call that person out on an edition of MizTV to rant about how it was a fluke that he was taken out of the match by that person—be it Finn Balor, Seth Rollins or Braun Strowman—and before long, they'll be on a path to a title match at the biggest show of the year.
This could also happen with someone The Miz eliminates, flipping the script a bit, as he could gloat that he took down that guy and proved he's better than him, gloating for the sake of repairing his ego following coming up short for the No. 1 contender's spot.
One way or another, the eliminations surrounding The Miz will dictate who he faces at WrestleMania and that may be the only feud to come out of this particular match itself.
