Shane McMahon returned to WWE Raw unannounced. He didn’t stay long. He came for the opening segment and made the announcement for the main event of Elimination Chamber alongside Adam Pearce.
Pearce and Shane announced Drew McIntyre will be defending his WWE Championship against five other men inside the Elimination Chamber structure.
Those 5 men are Jeff Hardy, Randy Orton, AJ Styles, The Miz, and Sheamus. Based on the rumors of Keith Lee’s plans for tonight, I’m sure many were hoping he’d be one of the 5 challengers.

Of course, Randy Orton is set to face off against Drew later in the show and we could see something involving The Fiend which could change things.
Fans weren’t the only ones hoping for a different match. Drew later approached Shane backstage before he left the arena. He wanted to know why he didn’t get a singles match with Sheamus.
Shane said he needed something huge. He told Drew he’d get the match at some other time.
