WWE will present the Elimination Chamber premium live event this Saturday on Peacock. The show takes place in Saudi Arabia, which always gives off a very different vibe. There are plenty of Wrestlemania-building matches on the card. Fans have been speculating a lot about what is going on with the company’s two world championships.
Major surprises haven’t been discussed too much among fans. There are some twists and turns to be expected from Elimination Chamber, despite its proximity to WrestleMania. It could come in the form of an angle to help set up a champion vs champion match between Brock Lesnar and Roman Reigns at Mania.
Dave Meltzer talked about how WWE might handle that situation on the latest Wrestling Observer Radio. It doesn’t make sense to have Brock Lesnar lose in the Elimination Chamber match without some sort of tomfoolery. That means he is likely to leave the show as WWE Champion. If Reigns retains the Universal Championship against Goldberg, the champion vs champion match would be set.
“I was told twist and turns coming on this show, so I don’t know what those would be. I know that there was a push to do title vs title which means Brock wins the Chamber and Roman beats Goldberg. I think most people kind of are expecting that. For Brock to lose in the Chamber match, I mean, I don’t know how you beat him, because again, it’s like, they haven’t done a lot of interference in Chamber matches. I suppose you can do it this time, but it would have to take that.
I don’t see, like, someone scoring a fall on Brock Lesnar. It makes no sense at all to do that building up Mania because the whole idea of Mania has been to maximize Reigns and maximize Lesnar and make them the two biggest stars and protect them completely. Granted, Lesnar did lose to Bobby Lashley, but that was Roman’s doing. It was very clear watching the match that that was the situation, but they could get the revenge back.
There’s a lot of different ways you can go, just the way that they choose. There’s five, six, seven different right ways, you know. There’s certainly going to be wrong ways, but I don’t think they’ll do those wrong ways. I wouldn’t bet on it, because if you bet on their booking, you’re going to be wrong more than you’re right, because their booking is more negative than positive.”
We will have to wait and see how WWE decides to book Elimination Chamber. Whatever happens, it will be a key moment on the road to WrestleMania 38. There should be some unexpected turns when WWE heads to Sauda Arabia this weekend.
