Germany, for example, is where WWE broadcasts its annual Elimination Chamber event under a different name to avoid all possible references to the tragedies of the holocaust.

Instead, the pay-per-view events were presented as "No Escape," dropping any connection to the titular stipulation. WWE has changed the chamber on a number of occasions over the years, both in appearance and what it's used to contest.

It has been used for world championship matches, questionable mid-card title bouts, and in situations to decide number one contender positions. It has even been used to contest both the men's and women's tag team championships.
