6 Predictions for Elimination Chamber 2018
RAW's final stop on the road to WrestleMania is in the form of the Elimination Chamber. We'll be witness to the first-ever Women's Elimination Chamber match. Although only four matches have been announced, a teased bout is Titus Worldwide vs The Bar.
The special attraction of the show is former UFC Bantamweight Champion Ronda Rousey signing her Monday Night RAW contract. While the direction of a few matches is fairly cleary, there's a lot of uncertainty with respect to plans for The Grandest Stage Of Them All.
Hopefully, it isn't as predictable as many hope for it to be, and WWE delivers a solid PPV. Last year, Elimination Chamber was a SmackDown Live PPV, where Bray Wyatt won the WWE Championship for the first time. The only two participants from last year who are present this year are John Cena and The Miz.
Here's what we think will go down on RAW's final stop on the road to WrestleMania.
#6 Asuka vs Nia Jax
This match has an interesting stipulation. If Nia Jax defeats Asuka, not only does she end her prestigious 250+ win streak, but she will be added to the championship match at WrestleMania that Asuka is guaranteed to be involved in.
As we know, Asuka is the winner of the first-ever Women's Royal Rumble match. Whether she chooses the RAW Women's Championship or SmackDown Women's Championship at WrestleMania is yet to be decided.
WWE has built Nia Jax as the single biggest threat to Asuka, although she's faced her on two occasions in NXT, both bouts being for the NXT Women's Championship. Asuka was successful on both occasions. With WWE giving Asuka a major push, less than a month off her historic Royal Rumble win, it's unlikely that her streak has come to a scratching halt on a B-PPV.(Though the same thing was said about Charlotte's PPV streak, which ended at Fastlane 2017).
Prediction: Asuka defeats Nia Jax
