At WWE Elimination Chamber, Kevin Owens, Daniel Bryan, Cesaro, Jey Uso, Sami Zayn and King Corbin will battle inside the career-altering Elimination Chamber for the right to challenge Universal Champion Roman Reigns on the same night!
On the Feb. 8 edition of Monday Night Raw, 2021 Royal Rumble Match winner Edge sent shock waves through multiple World Title landscapes when he announced that he will wait until after WWE Elimination Chamber to pick which World Champion he will face at WrestleMania. Four days later on SmackDown, WWE Official Adam Pearce initially planned for The Head of the Table to defend the Universal Title inside the Elimination Chamber the same way that WWE Champion Drew McIntyre would. Special Council Paul Heyman, however, used a technicality to explain that Reigns would not complete in the Chamber, but would instead face the winner of the SmackDown Elimination Chamber Match on the spot at the Feb. 21 pay-per-view.
In response, Pearce announced that they would have Superstars qualify to be in the SmackDown Elimination Chamber Match. The exception to that, though, would be a Superstar that had taken The Big Dog to the limit, Reigns’ cousin… Jey Uso! Once out of the ring, Pearce also revealed that Kevin Owens would automatically make the cut – a decision that infuriated the titleholder.
Later that night, Sami Zayn & King Corbin qualified with a tag team victory over Rey and Dominik Mysterio, and Daniel Bryan & Cesaro grabbed the final two spots in the Chamber with a win over SmackDown Tag Team Champions Dolph Ziggler and Robert Roode.
The Elimination Chamber Match will begin with two Superstars in the ring and four other competitors enclosed in their respective pods. Every five minutes, a pod door will open, allowing another competitor to join the contest. This process will continue until all pods are empty. When a Superstar is pinned or submits, that Superstar is eliminated and must exit the Chamber. The last Superstar remaining will challenge The Head of the Table.
Who will emerge victorious inside the Chamber? And what will be left of them when they go one-on-one with the dominant Universal Champion?! Don’t miss all the action of WWE Elimination Chamber, streaming live on the award-winning WWE Network on Sunday, Feb. 21, at 7 ET/4 PT!
