WWE presented Elimination Chamber tonight, and Montreal was in for quite a show. The first match of the night was the Women’s Elimination Chamber match, and six females battled for a chance to face the RAW Women’s Champion at WrestleMania 39.

Liv Morgan, Asuka, Carmella, Raquel Rodriguez, and Nikki Cross. The women in this match battled in the unforgiving structure, and utilized many inventive spots with more than two competitors. WWE gave each Elimination Chamber match over thirty minutes, so they had some time to tell the story.

One spot saw Nikki Cross climb on top of Carmella’s pod, while she was still trapped inside, and Cross nailed a crossbody on Raquel Rodriguez, Natalya, and Liv Morgan. After Mella finally got in the match, she failed at pinning everyone, and then she trash-talked Asuka before getting back in her pod. This was followed by Raquel driving Cross through Carmella’s pod, which caused her to flee. Then Raquel pinned Cross for the first elimination.


Another incredible spot saw Morgan nail a sunset flip off the top of the chamber pod onto Raquel, but that didn’t get a pinfall. Asuka came in last, and she destroyed Carmella.

Liv Morgan finally passed out after Natalya locked on a sharpshooter and Asuka locked on her armbar at the same time. She never tapped out, but she was eliminated. Natalya was finally eliminated by Carmella after a Superkick while she had Asuka in the sharpshooter.

Raquel Rodriguez was then pinned by both Asuka and Carmella after the Empress of Tomorrow destroyed her with multiple stiff shots. The final two were Asuka and Carmella. It didn’t take a lot of time before Asuka scored the win via submission to lock down her match at WrestleMania 39.

This shouldn’t come as a huge surprise, because Asuka was the betting favorite with -1250 odds. Now, Asuka and Bianca Belair will throw down at SoFi Stadium at WrestleMania 39. The build for that match should be fun.
