WWE has announced that The Usos will defend the SmackDown duo titles they have held for a few months now, against the Viking Raiders on February 19 in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. Erik and Ivar have been in the first place since winning a Fatal 4 Way on January 14 in SmackDown.
The other teams were Mansoor and Cesaro, Jinder Mahal and Shanky, and the two cousins, the Los Lotharios. Through an official statement on its website in mid-January, WWE announced that it will return to Saudi Arabia in style on February 19, 2022: “The General Entertainment Authority, in collaboration with WWE, has announced that the Elimination Chamber Premium Live Event will be held at the largest columnless building in the world in Jeddah on Saturday 19 February 2022." For now, WWE has announced the following matches that will make up the card of this premium live event in front of the Saudi Arabian audience: Elimination Chamber Match for the WWE Title Brock Lesnar vs.
Seth Rollins vs. Austin Theory vs. Riddle vs. AJ Styles vs. Bobby Lashley (c) RAW Women's Title Match WWE Hall of Famer Lita vs. Becky Lynch (c) SmackDown Tag Team Titles Match The Viking Raiders vs. The Usos (c).
The latest news on Elimination Chamber
We also remind you that on their website the McMahon-owned company had included Roman Reigns, Charlotte Flair and the Mansoor house idol among the names of the participants.
Beware that for Roman Reigns, Brock Lesnar's official challenger at Wrestlemania 38, there could already be the name ready to challenge in the Road to Wrestlemania and just maybe at Elimination Chamber, with The Beast Incarnate who for now is focused on recovering his WWE title from the clutches of Bobby Lashley who at the Royal Rumble took it away incorrectly with the help of the Tribal Chief and Paul Heyman.
Instead, for now, Mansoor has not yet found space, probably the WWE will invent some single match or some Battle Royal in which to participate, while Charlotte Flair first has to deal with Ronda Rousey on Friday, who will probably go face to face with The Queen for his decision on who to challenge at Wrestlemania 38.
Flair needs to look very strong heading into that potential match, so defending her title in a Women's Elimination Chamber match could be an intriguing prospect. This would also help the company push the ongoing rivalries between Flair and Banks, Deville and Naomi, and Natalya and Aliyah.
