Men's Elimination Chamber Match: WWE Elimination Chamber 2018 winners, video highlights and analysis
It was finally time for the much awaited main event of the night - Men's Elimination Chamber. For the first time in this PPV's history, there were seven men who stepped into the steel cage to fight for their deserved shot at the title at WrestleMania.
The Miz, Finn Balor and Seth Rollins were the three men to start the match. The Miz tried to convince "The Demon King" to be his ally but Balor and "The Architect" knew what they had to do. They teamed up and went against The Miz only to remove him from the ring.
As Miz was left on one side of the ring, both Balor and Rollins now charged at one another. They continuously reversed each other's moves and their chemistry was incredible inside the ring (Thanks to their tag team partnership in the WWE Live events).
The next few moments in the match featured an incredible fight between Rollins and Balor before John Cena made his way into the ring. He had a heated verbal exchange with Rollins before the two grappled each other. Soon, it was Rollins & Balor vs Cena.
By this time, Miz and started to gain his momentum as well. The four men were battling it out inside the ring when it was time for Roman reigns to step inside the squared circle. All the wrestlers inside the ring picked their target while Miz decided to rely on strategies.
He was able to get all the other four wrestlers on their ring and remained the only man standing inside the ring for few solid minutes. He even worked up the crowd by asking them to decide who should be his next target.
However, it was not long before the tables turned. The Miz was taken counterattacked by "The Big Dog". While the five men were trying to pin each other, it was time for Braun Strowman to walk in.
"The Monster Amongst Men" single-handedly took down all the wrestlers inside the ring, one by one. The Miz tried running away from Strowman but he couldn't escape for long.
Strowman grabbed Miz by his hair and smashed his face against the bulletproof glass. He then threw him back inside the ring and took down all the other wrestlers in the process. After a little hile, Strowman pinned The Miz and caused the first elimination.
It was now time for the final entrant, Elias but he chose to stay inside. The four men left inside the ring ganged up to take on Strowman. But that was not enough to take down the Monster. It took him one attitude adjustment followed by a spear to keep him down for a while.
The wrestlers were once again engaged in a furious bout once again and ended up laying flat at the same time. Elias tried to make use of the opportunity but he was powerslammed by the returning Strowman which was followed by his elimination.
Strowman decided to take on Reigns as his next target. While he was busy dealing with Reigns and Balor, Cena decided to interfere. Sadly for him, that resulted in his elimination. This was Strowman's third elimination of the night.
Balor decided to take on Strowman next. He was quick in his moves and had Strowman under his control but that did not last long. "The Monster Among Men" was finally able to eliminate the "Demon King".
That left only three men inside the ring. It looked like the Shield members would unite against Strowman but Reigns and Rollins had their own settlements to make. Rollins managed to sideline Reigns and decided to take on Strowman. He came close to pinning him but The "Monster Among Men" kicked out.
Just when things seemed to turn in favour of Rollins, Strowman seized an opportunity and took down Rollins with a powerslam. He pinned Rollins and created a record for causing the highest number of eliminations in the history of this PPV.
That left Reigns and Strowman inside the ring. Reigns landed three consecutive superman punches on Strowman followed by two spears.to seal his win. He pinned the "Monster Amon men" to become the number one contender. He will now challenge Brock Lesnar for the Universal Championship at WrestleMania.

Although we had our winner, Strowman wasn't down yet. He went on his usual rampage mode and ended up slamming Reigns against the bulletproof glass of pods. That, ladies and gentlemen, marked the end of Raw brand's first exclusive PPV of the year.
