What's the story?

With five Superstars now confirmed for the Men's Elimination Chamber Match, it has now been revealed that the final entrant will be confirmed in a Fatal 4-Way Match next week on WWE RAW.

Roman Reigns and Miz joined Elias, John Cena and Braun Strowman in securing their spot in the Elimination Chamber Match last week. The winner of the match will go on to face Brock Lesnar for the Universal Title at WrestleMania.

In case you didn't know...

This year's event is already set to be historic with the first ever Women's Elimination Chamber Match being announced, but the Men's match looking very stacked with one spot remaining.

Braun Strowman defeated Kane to take his place in the match last week, Elias defeated Matt Hardy and John Cena triumphed over Finn Balor. This week's RAW saw Roman Reigns pin Bray Wyatt and Miz conquer Apollo Crews to advance.

The heart of the matter

Well, four of the five men who lost their qualification matches will get another chance to enter the Elimination Chamber, as a Fatal 4-Way Match has been announced for next week's RAW to determine the final participant in the match.

Finn Balor, Apollo Crews, Matt Hardy and Bray Wyatt will go at it for the chance to become number one contender and clash with Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania.

The only man from the qualifiers who won't take part is Kane, who was written off TV last week when he was "hospitalised" at the hands of Braun Strowman amidst rumours of an injury. Kane has been pulled from all WWE Live events for the month of February too.

What's next?

We won't need to wait too long to find out who joins Braun Strowman, Elias, Miz, Roman Reigns and John Cena.

The match takes place on next week's edition of RAW at the SAP Center in San Jose.

Author's take

A lot of people were very disappointed with some of the results of the qualifying matches - particularly Finn Balor and Bray Wyatt being eliminated - so it'll be interesting to see how this one plays out!

Bray Wyatt, of course, played a part in Matt Hardy losing his qualifying match and the two have had quite the rivalry recently, so it'll be interesting to see them clash in this match-up, but Apollo Crews also put on a great showing against Miz in his match, and Balor possibly had the toughest task of them all, going up against John Cena and narrowly losing out.

I'm going to stick my neck out and say Finn Balor qualifies, but it definitely isn't a straightforward choice!
