In recent weeks, it seems that WWE has once again returned to a small moment of narrative crisis, due to multiple problems that have characterized the card of the next ppv that will be staged next Sunday: Elimination Chamber in a rather negative way.
Apparently, only three days after the next special event of the Stamford company was broadcast, much of the event card would not have been made official yet, or rather it would have been so much changed and then modified again, that in the end main ideas would fail.
WWE Elimination Chamber is this Sunday
As revealed by various sources online, including the well-known overseas site Ringside News, due to the recent problems that have led WWE to do without some athletes, such as Mia Yim and partner Keith Lee, with both athletes who should still be in quarantine for contracting covid (although there is no confirmation yet) and the absence that will lead Lacey Evans to stay away from the Raw rings for several months due to her second pregnancy, the company would still be working hard at building the event card.
According to what was reported by the latest updates of the overseas site, in fact, the only certain matches that WWE would have fixed in the card of the next event would be the two Elimination Chamber matches, that of Raw and that of Smackdown, which will see the champion on one side WWE, Drew McIntyre, defending his belt from the attack of five other athletes and on the other hand the crowning of a new No.
1 contender for Smackdown. At the moment, the only matches on which the WWE does not want to put a hand are precisely these two disputes and the third that will arise precisely from the Elimination Chamber of the blue brand, which will see the winner of the Chamber go to challenge the Universal champion on the same evening, Roman Reigns, with the title up for grabs.
Everything else that will surround the evening of February 21st is still at stake, with WWE still working day and night to better build the rest of the Elimination Chamber card. A tenured writer with direct knowledge of the situation confirmed, “Yes, [Elimination Chamber] is still a work in progress, but isn’t everything until it airs now?” The two Elimination Chamber matches will seemingly remain untouched at this point, and Roman Reigns will face the winner of the SmackDown Chamber match. Other than that, WWE still has some work to do.
