Natalya Earns Spot In Women’s Elimination Chamber Match, Updated Lineup
Natalya earned a spot in the Women’s Elimination Chamber joining four other women along with a sixth woman to be decided soon.
At the upcoming WWE Elimination Chamber Premium Live Event on February 18th, six women will be competing in an Elimination Chamber match with the winner earning a Raw Women’s Title match against Bianca Belair at WrestleMania 39.
On the January 30th edition of Raw, WWE announced that Asuka, Raquel Rodriguez, Nikki Cross and Liv Morgan had already earned four of the spots in the match. Asuka and Cross are part of the Raw brand while Raquel and Morgan are on Smackdown.
The February 3rd edition of Smackdown saw four women compete in a Fatal 4-Way to earn the fifth spot in the Women’s Elimination Chamber match.
Natalya won the highly competitive match by making Zelina Vega tap out to a Sharpshooter while Shayna Baszler and Shotzi were the two other women in the matchup that were unable to make the save.
That victory meant that Natalya joins Asuka, Rodriguez, Cross and Morgan in the match with one more spot left. That final spot will go to Carmella, “Michin” Mia Yim, Candice LeRae or Piper Niven, who have their Fatal 4-Way Match this coming Monday on the February 6th edition of Raw.
As for the Men’s Elimination Chamber match, Austin Theory will put the US Title on the line against Bronson Reed, Seth “Freakin” Rollins and Johnny Gargano. The three challengers all earned their spot on the January 30th episode of Raw.
There will be two more US Title Elimination Chamber match qualifiers this coming Monday on Raw with Angelo Dawkins facing Damian Priest while Montez Ford will be against Elias.
In the main event of the Elimination Chamber, Roman Reigns will defend the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship against his former ally Sami Zayn. It is taking place in Zayn’s hometown of Montreal.
All of that means that the updated Elimination Chamber lineup looks like this right now.
Undisputed WWE Universal Championship: Roman Reigns (c) vs. Sami Zayn
United States Championship Elimination Chamber Match: Austin Theory (c) vs. Seth “Freakin” Rollins vs. Bronson Reed vs. Johnny Gargano vs. Montez Ford/Elias vs. Angelo Dawkins/Damian Priest
