It’s time to start things off with a historic match, and WWE boldly sends Carmella out first!

Inaugural Women’s Tag Team Championship
Elimination Chamber Match
The two teams to start are Sasha Banks & Bayley against Mandy Rose & Sonya Deville. While The Ilconics, Nia Jax & Tamina, The Riott Squad, & Carmella & Naomi are in the pods.
Rose and Deville kick the babyfaces to start the match, Bayley kicks Mandy, while Sasha dropkicks Sonya. They hit a dropkick/meteora in stereo for two counts. Sasha leaps onto the top rope and hits a crossbody to both of them and score a two count on Sonya. They begin to team-up on Sonya Deville in the corner, but she fires back with punches and hits a nice spear on Banks. Mandy Rose returns and hits Bayley with a backbreaker for a two count. Looks like Mandy Rose broke her two front teeth somewhere.
Rose and Deville take them both out of the ring and slam them into the steel wall. Deville continues to slam Banks against the chains but then misses a kick and hurts her foot. Rose gets her foot caught in the chains and Bayley hits her with a neckbreaker on the floor. The timer counts down and the next team released is The Riott Squad!
Logan and Morgan emerge and brawl with Bayley and Sasha. They take them both down, before slamming Sasha’s hand into the plexi-glass. Rose and Deville come face-to-face with Logan and Morgan and the four of them just brawl in the ring, most of it on their knees for some reason. Morgan slaps Sonya and floors her, then Morgan tried to do the Matrix-dodge but Deville punched her anyway. All four women go down to end a real sloppy segment. Bayley returns and starts taking everyone out with clotheslines, and a back body drop. She goes to the top rope but Deville and Rose meet her there, then we get a five women tower of doom and everybody is down.

The clock re-appears and out comes Royce and Kay. They run in and try to pin every woman but can’t score any pinfalls. They argue with the referee for a minute before slamming several girls into ring posts, and hit Sonya with a double suplex. They continue to beat on all women until finally Sasha Banks comes back in and attacks them. Sasha is still selling her arm, which is wrapped in kinesio tape from last week’s Raw. Royce and Kay knock Sasha down and talk trash to her in indecipherable voices. They take Banks and Bayley and squish them against the chain wall. Royce then hits a flip over the ropes onto both of them, kicking Bayley in the face in the process. Next they turn their attention to Rose and Deville and slam them into the chains.
And the countdown begins again, and this time it’s Naomi and Carmella. Naomi takes both Royce and Kay out immediately with a crossbody. The fans begin chanting “Corey Graves”. Naomi and Carmella hit bronco busters in opposite corners. Carmella hits Kay with a hurricanrana into the chains, then superkicks Sarah Logan. Naomi connects with a split-legged moonsault to Logan but Morgan breaks the pin attempt. Next, every woman gets a moment to shine as it were, until every woman is down. Naomi comes face-to-face with Mandy Rose and connects with a big rear view. Billie Kay and Peyton catch Naomi with a unique double-team pin and score the first pinfall! Naomi & Carmella Eliminated.
Kay and Royce are celebrating like crazy when the other three teams surround them. Suddenly, Jax and Tamina’s pod is unlocked and everyone turns their attention to them – while Royce and Kay hide in a pod. Jax and Tamina knock everyone down before turning their attention to the Ilconics. They go to either side of the pod and force both doors open. They grab both Aussie’s by the hair and sling them from side to side into the chainlink fence! They throw them both into the ring and hit stereo Samoan drops and that’s that. The Ilconics Eliminated.
Logan and Morgan storm the ring and attack Jax and Tamina. Liv hits Nia with a hurricanrana, as well as an assisted diamond dust to Tamina. Nia knocks them both down and in come Deville and Rose again. Sasha And Bayley return as well and hit both Morgan and Logan with double-team hip tosses. Rose and Deville attack Bayley and Sasha, but Bayley catapults Deville into the turnbuckles. They set them both between the ropes and Sasha hits double knee to both. Tamina and Nia connect with body blocks, meanwhile, Liv and Sarah climb to the top of a pod. Morgan and Logan hit stereo crossbody’s to the floor! Jax then grabbed Morgan on the turnbuckles and connected with a Samoan drop, before Tamina hit a Snuka splash to both. The Riott Squad Eliminated.

We’re down to three teams. Jax tosses Sasha from the ring, then Bayley as well. She goes out after Bayley and looked to tackle her through a pod but Bayley dodged it and she crashed through by herself! The other teams decide to gang-up on Tamina and they attack her with their signatures before everyone climbing onto her for the pinfall! Nia Jax & Tamina Eliminated.
The two teams that started things off are the only two left. The four women start brawling and it’s the heels who take control. Bayley reverses Roses and shoves her into a knee from Banks. Sasha then hit Rose with a backstabber, and Bayley hit the Bayley-To-Belly but Rose broke the pin. Rose starts to climb the wall and onto the top of the pod to get away from Banks and Bayley, but they chase her. Sasha and her brawl up top, and Bayley joins them. Deville then climbs up as well but all four fight their way back down. Banks and Bayley are both tossed into the chamber pods. Rose gets Sasha back into the ring and hits her finisher but Sasha kicks out!
Deville looked for a spear to Banks but Sasha ducked it and she hit Rose! Banks then takes Deville down and locks-in the Bank Statement with her foot and Sonya taps!
