The Elimination Chamber is one of WWE’s last great original stipulation matches. Created in 2002, the Chamber features elements of Hell in a Cell, Survivor Series tag, and Royal Rumble matches.
Traditionally two men would start in the ring while the remaining participants started in four pods. After a few minutes a pod would open and a new participant would enter the match. Wrestlers could be eliminated by pinfall or submission and the last competitor standing would be the winner. The rules have only been altered for individual matches over the years, such as when the Chamber was full of weapons in 2006 and when a total of seven men competed in 2018.
The Elimination Chamber has produced a number of truly great matches over the years. As the match has routinely been contested with championships and title shots on the line, the level of talent featured in these matches has been high. With men like Triple H, Shawn Michaels, Chris Jericho, Undertaker, John Cena and AJ Styles going out of their way to steal the show in the Elimination Chamber, the stipulation has become one of WWE’s most anticipated matches.
