The first ever Elimination Chamber Match occurred at Survivor Series 2002 PPV. The fans saw a returning Shawn Michaels try to capture his fourth WWE Title against five other superstars (Rob Van Dam, Kane, Chris Jericho, Booker T, and then World Champion, Triple H).
In 2010, the match’s name became its own PPV and thus replacing No Way Out as a February PPV. At that time, the match was used for defending the World Champion before headlining WrestleMania or getting a spot to main event WrestleMania.
In 2015, there were two Elimination Chamber matches both of which didn’t have a World Championship Title on the line, but rather the WWE Tag Team Championships and the vacant WWE Intercontinental Championship were on the line. This was never done before. Now that the statistical portion of the article is behind us, let’s look at the Top 5 Elimination Chamber matches to watch.
