Why someone other than Roman Reigns should have won the Elimination Chamber match
The 2018 Men's Elimination Chamber was a great one. It created history as it was the first ever Elimination Chamber match to have seven participants. The match lasted over forty minutes with an immense amount of brutality. In the end, battling all odds, Roman Reigns emerged as the winner and is scheduled to face Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania 34 for the Universal Championship.
However, this outcome has saddened many WWE fans, as most people believe there were better and worthy contenders for Brock Lesnar. Reigns received a lot of flak when he defeated The Undertaker at WrestleMania last year. Similarly, this decision of the WWE to crown Reigns victorious and give him an extra push will surely invite some backlash.
Let us have a look at the other six wrestlers from the match who could have won the contest and battled Lesnar for the Universal Championship at WrestleMania.
Elias is certainly enjoying a lot of crowd support in the WWE owing to his persona. It may be his singing, or his 'Walk with Elias' promos, or bashing his guitar on fellow wrestlers. Whatever it is, he is doing everything right at the moment. Elias defeated both John Cena and Braun Strowman in a triple threat match on Monday Night RAW to be the last participant to enter the Chamber match.
Had he won the Elimination Chamber match, he would have the support of the fans going into Mania. He has never faced Lesnar, thus the crowd would be excited to see what these two competitors can bring forth to defeat each other. Elias also has momentum on his side, as he defeated a former World Champion, Seth Rollins. Thus he possesses all the ingredients a Champion should and him facing Lesnar could have brought a greater amount of delight amongst the fans than Roman Reigns.
