From the WWE Rumor Mill: Women's Elimination Chamber Match participants possibly revealed
What’s the story?
The Women of Monday Night RAW will continue to make history with the first-ever Women’s Elimination Chamber in three weeks and the participants may have been revealed.
A graphic promoting the title match suggest that Alexa Bliss will defend her RAW Women’s Championship against Bayley, Mandy Rose, Nia Jax, Sasha Banks and Sonya Deville.
In case you didn’t know...
RAW Commissioner Stephanie McMahon announced that Bliss would defend her title inside the Elimination Chamber. This will mark Bliss’s first title defence since her match against Mickie James at the TLC pay-per-view back in October.
The heart of the matter
A report from Cageside Seats suggested that the veteran and future Hall-Of-Famer Mickie James would be participating in the Chamber match, but this graphic could mean that Rose would be replacing her.
One of James’ recent tweets responded to a fan regarding her participation in the Chamber match and the former Women’s Champion seemed to indicate that she would be competing for the title.
With Paige sidelined, Alicia Fox injured, and Asuka’s recent victory in the Women’s Royal Rumble, the only other participants left on the Raw roster who could possibly compete in the match aside from the champion are Bayley, Dana Brooke, Rose, James, Jax, Banks, and Deville.
Brooke has been working with Titus Worldwide and has had little to no in-ring action until the Royal Rumble match last Sunday, so she is not likely to compete.
One of the matches rumoured for WrestleMania 34 is a Raw Women’s Championship match between Bliss and Jax and the Elimination Chamber could be the match that sets the feud in motion.
The Elimination Chamber pay-per-view will emanate from the T-Mobile Arena on the Las Vegas Strip in Paradise, Nevada on Feb. 25, 2018.
Plans change all the time in WWE, so there’s a chance that planned match participants could be different once the company officially announces the combatants.
