With just two nights until the pay-per-view event, the Elimination Chamber card is reportedly still a “work in progress”, with only a handful of matches 100% confirmed for the show.
Ringside News – who have had a pretty good record of backstage scoops in recent months – is reporting that WWE is still not certain of the card for the pay-per-view event on Sunday night:
Ringside News has learned that, as of early this morning, WWE is still trying to work out what to do with the Elimination Chamber pay-per-view. This really isn’t anything out of the ordinary when it comes to touching up a card, but this situation is still a bit unique.
A tenured writer with direct knowledge of the situation confirmed that, “Yes, [Elimination Chamber] is still a work in progress, but isn’t everything until it airs now?”
The two Elimination Chamber matches will seemingly remain untouched at this point, and Roman Reigns will face the winner of the SmackDown Chamber match. Other than that, WWE still has some work to do.
As of right now, the only three matches that are 100% finalised for the pay-per-view are the Raw and SmackDown Elimination Chamber matches, and the subsequent Roman Reigns Universal title defence.
Despite announcing her legitimate pregnancy on Raw, WWE is still promoting that Lacey Evans will challenge Asuka for the Raw Women’s title. It is unclear whether the match will be scrapped, or if Lacey Evans will be replaced with another wrestler.
Another match that is up in the air is the United States Championship match between Bobby Lashley, Riddle and Keith Lee. WWE said on Raw that Keith Lee suffered some injuries on last week’s show, so it’s unclear whether or not he’ll make the pay-per-view.
