Austin Theory regained the United States Championship in a grueling triple threat match, also involving Seth Rollins and Bobby Lashley, at the 2022 Survivor Series premium live event. His next big title defense is happening sooner than later.

WWE recently dropped a Digital Exclusive video featuring Byron Saxton on their Twitter. Saxton delivered a huge news about the upcoming Elimination Chamber premium live event, noting that the United States Championship will be defended at the final stop before WrestleMania 39.

“We’re on the road to WrestleMania, but there’s one major stop before we get to WrestleMania. And that major stop is the Elimination Chamber, where we now know that the United States Championship will be defended inside that hazardous structure known as the Elimination Chamber.”

WWE will determine the opponents for Theory with a series of qualifying matches. Tonight’s RAW will feature three qualifiers. Johnny Gargano will square off against Baron Corbin in one of the qualifiers. Seth Rollins, on the other hand, will take on Chad Gable in the other. Dolph Ziggler will take on Bronson Reed in the third qualifier as well.
