Vince McMahon is hoping today’s Elimination Chamber premium live event in Saudi Arabia goes off without a hitch. WWE has a massive card planned for the huge international showcase. Several title matches are on the card as well as two bouts that will go down inside the Elimination Chamber structure.
In the men’s match, the WWE Championship will be on the line as Bobby Lashley defends against Brock Lesnar, Seth Rollins, AJ Styles, Austin Theory, and Riddle. The Women’s Chamber match has a WrestleMania title shot on the line and features Liv Morgan, Rhea Ripley, Bianca Belair, Doudrop, Nikki A.S.H., and the returning Alexa Bliss.
Vince has been very busy backstage at the show. The WWE head is taking a particular interest in the Elimination Chamber contests. Mike Johnson of PW Insider reported that McMahon has very specific ideas for how he wants the matches to go.
“Obviously, Vince McMahon has a private office backstage as well. We are told McMahon is being very specific about what he wants out of the Elimination Chamber matches and some of the originally planned spots for the Women’s bout have been changed so they don’t mirror what is planned for the Men’s bout.”
Both matches have major WrestleMania implications. Vince McMahon knows things need to go smoothly to spark interest in his premiere event. It all starts today at the Elimination Chamber.
The Elimination Chamber premium live event kicks off today at noon eastern. Anything can happen on the road to WrestleMania. Ringside News will be there with live coverage throughout the event.
