WWE News: Braun Strowman sets Elimination Chamber Record
What’s the story?
Despite suffering defeat in the Elimination Chamber, WWE Superstar Braun Strowman walked away from the pay-per-view with a new record under his belt.
In case you didn’t know
Strowman competed against six other superstars in the Men’s Elimination Chamber match to determine the No.1 Contender for Brock Lesnar’s Universal Championship. Strowman lasted until the end of the match but was eliminated after two spears from Roman Reigns.
The heart of the matter
Three eliminations in a single Elimination Chamber match was the record held by Goldberg, Carlito, and The Undertaker, but Strowman set a new record tonight with five eliminations.
Strowman’s first eliminated The Miz, but his actions caught the attention of the other chamber participants and led to Strowman being targeted.
John Cena, Roman Reigns, Finn Bálor, and Seth Rollins, all hoisted Strowman up for a Shield Powerbomb and covered him at the same time, but the former Wyatt Family member kicked out and demonstrated his tenacity.
Cena, Rollins, and Bálor would each attack Strowman with their finishers, but none of them was able to keep Strowman down for the count and all three men, plus Elias, were eventually eliminated by the "Monster Among Men".
The record for the most eliminations in the history of the Chamber is held by Chris Jericho at 10, followed by Triple H at seven, The Undertaker at six, and a newly found three-way tie between Randy Orton, CM Punk and Strowman.
After realizing his defeat, Strowman brutally attacked Reigns like it was 2017 by hitting him with a Running Powerslam and throwing him into the chamber pods.
Both men are likely headed to a singles match in the near future, but what this means for Strowman’s WrestleMania plans remains uncertain.
Strowman was the highlight of the Men’s Elimination Chamber and looked great despite his loss.
Hopefully, the company has something big planned for him heading into New Orleans.
