Coming roughly two weeks after the Super ShowDown event, Elimination Chamber is a strange show. Neither the WWE nor Universal Championships are being defended. It's the final pay-per-view before WrestleMania, but Brock Lesnar, Roman Reigns, John Cena and Goldberg are not scheduled to be on the show. Instead, Elimination Chamber will answer one question: Who will face Becky Lynch at WrestleMania? The Raw Women's Champion main-evented last year's show, but doesn't yet have an opponent for April 6's wrestling extravaganza.
Six women will enter the Elimination Chamber, but only one will stand tall as challenger to Lynch. It'll be one of two Chamber matches. Curiously, the other one will be for the SmackDown Tag Team Championship belts. Why's there an Elimination Chamber match for tag titles but not to determine a challenger to Goldberg's Universal Championship? Such a great question.
The best match of the night may end up not being a Chamber match. Following Monday's episode of Raw, AJ Styles will take on Aleister Black in a No Disqualification match. AJ was once the company's most consistently excellent performer, though it's been awhile since he's cranked out a classic. This could be it.
