From the WWE Rumor Mill: Huge spoiler for First Women's Elimination Chamber
Whats the story?
Alexa Bliss and Sasha Banks are the two favorites to win the First Women's Elimination Chamber match.
In case you didn't know...
The Elimination Chamber features six participants competing in a gigantic caged structure. Two men start the match, with the other four in pods around the ring. Every five minutes, one competitor is released from a pod at random until all six participants are in the match. The last one standing wins the match.
With the recent women's revolution, female wrestlers are featured in more gimmick matches. The first women's Hell in a Cell match between Sasha Banks and Charlotte took place in 2016, while a women's Money in the Bank match took place in July 2017 at the MITB pay-per-view.
Stephanie McMahon announced on 29th January, RAW that after the success of the first ever Women's Royal Rumble match the women would once again be making history at the second pay-per-view of the year when they take part in the first ever Women's Elimination Chamber match.
The heart of the matter
On February 5th edition of RAW, General Manager Kurt Angle announced that Alexa Bliss would defend her Raw Women's Championship in Satan's Structure against Mandy Rose, Sonya Deville, Mickie James, Bayley and Sasha Banks.
According to Cageside Seats, Alexa Bliss will retain the Women’s title at Elimination Chamber, but WWE may still be considering a Sasha Banks win.
Sportskeeda already predicted Alexa Bliss and Sasha Banks as favorites when we announced the rumor regarding the contenders of first ever elimination chamber match.
The Elimination Chamber pay-per-view will be held at T-Mobile Arena in Paradise, Nevada on this Sunday, Feb. 25. The Elimination Chamber will be the last pay-per-view for RAW before WrestleMania.
WWE is putting Sasha banks as a serious contender with her phenomenal performance in the Royal Rumble match and the match she had on RAW with Asuka. The chance of a new Champion makes the match more interesting and a heel Sasha winning is certainly a prospect for WrestleMania.
