WWE Elimination Chamber matches
Men's Elimination Chamber -- John Cena vs. Braun Strowman vs. Elias vs. Roman Reigns vs. The Miz vs. Finn Balor vs. Seth Rollins: This match will be contested for the No. 1 contendership to Brock Lesnar's universal championship. It will be the first Elimination Chamber match featuring seven competitors with what is likely to be three starting out in the ring to open the match. The Miz will be the first entrant with Elias entering last after winning a triple threat match against Cena and Strowman a few weeks ago on Raw.
Women's Championship -- Elimination Chamber -- Alexa Bliss (c) vs. Sasha Banks vs. Bayley vs. Mickie James vs. Mandy Rose vs. Sonya Deville: This match will be contested for Bliss' Raw women's championship with the winner going on to WrestleMania 34. Royal Rumble winner Asuka, who is on the Raw brand, has yet to decide which champion to challenge.
Ronda Rousey signs her Raw contract: It will be Rousey's first appearance in WWE since her surprise entrance at the Royal Rumble. She is supposed to become full-time after signing with Raw on Sunday, leading one to assume she will be on Raw the next night.
Asuka vs. Nia Jax: In a strange stipulation, Jax will be added to the Raw women's championship match at WrestleMania if she wins even though Asuka gets her choice of champion to challenge.
Matt Hardy vs. Bray Wyatt: This feud appears to be continuing, but it would not be a total shocker if it just comes to an end here at Chamber. We shall seen.
Raw Tag Team Championship -- The Bar (c) vs. Titus Worldwide: There was no clear challenger for Sheamus & Cesaro until Monday night when Titus O'Neil & Apollo once again one-upped the champions.
Luke Gallows & Karl Anderson vs. The Miztourage (Kickoff Show): This secondary Raw storyline has been incredibly inconsistent in its booking but will get a spot on the show after all. Why it isn't The Good Brothers vs. The Revival, who knows?!
