The WWE Elimination Chamber Premium Live Event took place in Montreal, Canada last week and it was truly a night of memorable moments and excellent matches. It carried on a legacy of several decades as well. Now it seems the event broke several WWE records.
The WWE Elimination Chamber Premium Live Event was headlined by Sami Zayn vs Roman Reigns for the Undisputed Universal Championship, which was pure cinema for many fans.
Apart from that, the show featured two Elimination Chamber matches. Austin Theory would successfully retain his United States Championship, while Asuka would win in the Women’s Elimination Chamber match. It was a historic night, where WWE broke gate records and had a legit sellout as well.
In an update, WWE officially announced today that Saturday’s Premium Live Event was their highest-grossing and most-viewed Elimination Chamber in company history. In addition to that, the event broke several other records.
