Top 5 Elimination Chamber Matches in WWE history
The WWE Universe is buzzing with excitement about seeing two Elimination Chamber matches on Sunday. The Tag Team Championship and the Intercontinental Championship will be defended at the Network exclusive pay-per-view on Sunday and both the matches are expected to be of high quality.
This quality will be measured with respect to all the excellent matches that WWE has put together over the years. From the first elimination chamber match in 2002 Survivor Series to the last one in 2014, the chamber lived up to the expectations almost every time. Before we gear up for another date with the steel structure, here is a look at some of the best Elimination Chamber Matches.
Raw New Year’s Resolution (2006)
Contestants: John Cena vs. Kurt Angle vs. Carlito vs. Chris Masters vs. Shawn Michaels vs. Kane
The Raw Elimination Chamber from 2006 New Year’s resolution kick started one of the best feuds in John Cena’s career. It all started inside the Elimination chamber when he worked against five other men in a destructive match. The likes of Kurt Angle, Shawn Michaels and Kane, known to be veterans were mixed in correct proportion with newcomers like Kurt Angle and Shawn Michaels to give an excellent match.
Angle was the first man to be eliminated and the teamwork of Masters and Carlito then eliminated Michaels and Kane. This left Cena in an uphill battle but he came out winning the match. Just minutes later, Edge came in and cashed in the Money in the Bank contract and took the title away from John Cena, just like that.
