On February 19th, WWE will present its next ppv from the rings of Saudi Arabia: Elimination Chamber. After years in which the homonymous match had also given a name to an entire ppv, with which inside, just like the Royal Rumble or Money in the Bank, there was precisely the characteristic infernal cage with chains, he had been brought into the scene only in the United States, while from this year the WWE preferred to hold its special event in that of the Saudi Arabian rings.
After having signed a contract of about 10 years with the principality of the Arab family, which will bring at least two or three PPVs to the Asian rings a year, with many important names such as that of Brock Lesnar, Bill Goldberg and this year also the Hall of Famer Lita, called to go to battle with The Man, Becky Lynch in a titled match for the Raw Women's Championship, WWE will continue its tour abroad.
Ronda Rousey will return to Elimination Chamber
WWE has advertised the in-ring veteran for two SmackDown episodes before Elimination Chamber. However, they haven't advertised him for any of the shows after the premium live event, heading into WrestleMania 38.
This indicates that his current run on the main roster is set to end on February 19 in Saudi Arabia. Tonight's episode of SmackDown is set to emanate from the Smoothie King Center in New Orleans. WWE will also tape next week's Elimination Chamber Go-Home episode of the blue brand.
The former WCW World Champion has been advertised for both shows. In the episode aired tonight of Friday Night Smackdown, WWE wanted to formalize a new match for the next ppv on February 19th, with Ronda Rousey, winner of this year's Royal Rumble, who will take the field in a tag team match, alongside Naomi, against the pair formed by the champion Charlotte Flair and the company's official, Sonya Deville.
Already last week, the relationship between Rousey and Deville had been irremediably compromised, with the Baddest Woman on the Planet attacking the WWE official, while trying to instead attack the federation champion, who had just challenged Wrestlemania 38.
, after winning the Rumble. Also this week, between the four athletes there have been all kinds of successes, with Charlotte who has kept her title from Naomi's attack, in the titled match that Deville had promised her, seven days ago and with the federation that has then decided to put them all together in the ring at Elimination Chamber, for the final showdown.
