Austin Theory bested Bronson Reed, Damian Priest, Johnny Gargano, Montez Ford, and Seth Rollins inside chamber. The champion issued an open challenge for the title during the post-Elimination Chamber press conference.

“I’ll have an open challenge on Monday, but nobody’s gonna accept it. Nobody’s in the now. Nobody’s forever like Austin Theory. At the end of the day it doesn’t matter who it is, because they are going A-Town Down.”


Later on, Edge was out in the press conference with Beth Phoenix and he accepted the challenge. Edge and Beth defeated Finn Balor and Rhea Ripley in a highly competitive mixed tag team match at the event.

“Man, an open challenge? We’re in Ottawa Monday. I haven’t wrestled there in 18 years. I haven’t had gold in a while. He’s a Cena fan, so he’s probably stupid. I’m not saying anything about Cena, because he has work ethic, unlike Austin Theory, which I will prove on Monday when I accept his open challenge.”

It remains to be seen when WWE will officially book the match. Austin Theory has undoubtedly stacked up his resume with tonight’s win. We’ll have to wait for RAW this Monday to find out what’s in store for Mr. A Town.
