The Elimination Chamber will be staged on February 19, which this year will take place in Saudi Arabia. In addition to the challenge between Lita and Becky Lynch for the Raw Women’s Championship, the Universal title will also be up for grabs in the match between Goldberg and Roman Reigns.
The WWE Hall of Famer is a two-time Universal Champion, having clinched the belt for a second time thanks to his victory over 'The Fiend' in Saudi Arabia in 2020. Despite being a symbol of this business, Bill has not received a standing ovation from the fans after his umpteenth return to WWE.
The same cannot be said of Lita, who was received beautifully by the SmackDown crowd a couple of weeks before the Royal Rumble. ECW legend Tommy Dreamer has made some interesting thoughts on this topic.
Tommy Dreamer on Lita
“How come WWE Universe welcomed Lita so much better than it did Goldberg? The reason is that Lita plays a babyface.
Goldberg's character has not been appreciated by the public in recent years, although I don't know why. I've always been a fan of Bill, I like him both in and out of the ring. He is no longer the absolute best on the square, but he has made up for his current shortcomings with charisma and intensity" - analyzed Tommy Dreamer.
Last year, Tommy ended up in the eye of the storm with an episode of 'Dark Side of the Ring', which revealed some background to the controversial 'Plane Ride from Hell' Speaking to Sportskeeda, former WWE and WCW writer Vince Russo returned to the question: “I was enormously surprised by Dreamer's behavior on that occasion.
I've always adored Tom and we're certainly not talking about an inexperienced or novice man. Dreamer has been an executive in many important companies, so he is a person who knows the world we live in very well. I think his loyalty and friendship towards Ric Flair played a very bad joke on him.
He risked compromising his reputation." WWE's official Twitter account recently asked fans if they thought Lita could walk out of the Elimination Chamber as a five-time women's champion. Bayley reacted to the same and sarcastically stated that another legend has returned to action while she's out injured.
"Another amazing legend returning to action while I’m out injured??!!?!! Y’all are making me blush," she wrote in her tweet. WWE Universe was looking forward to seeing The Role Model return as a surprise entrant in this year's Women's Royal Rumble.
However, that did not happen. She has been out injured for several months now after suffering an injury to her leg while training at the WWE Performance Center.
