TJRWrestling WWE Elimination Chamber 2024 Preview

wwe elimination chamber 2024 preview

It’s the WWE Elimination Chamber with two Chamber matches, a huge interview, title matches and more.

The Elimination Chamber PLE is a show where there’s a lot on the line and they have one of the most unique matches in all of WWE. The two Chamber matches are for World Title shots at WrestleMania 40 and there’s a lot of star power in both of those matches. The Rhea Ripley-Nia Jax match is going to main event with Ripley getting cheered heavily in her home country of Australia, so I think that’s a good choice for a match going on last.

This show has a unique start time of 5 AM ET where I live, which is obviously very different from the norm for me since I live near Toronto and we’re used to evening events. The Saudi shows are in the afternoon as well as the UK shows for us, but this is very early in the morning. I am a morning person, though, so I have no problem getting up that early and writing a live review. That’s what I’ll be doing on Saturday morning so join me on TJRWrestling for that. I think for a lot of fans, this show starting in the morning on a Saturday is going to be weird, but I think a lot of fans will like it too, especially if you’re a parent with kids.

There are only four matches on the main show just like what the Royal Rumble had. A match was added to the Kickoff Show as well. If it was me, I’d probably put six matches on the show and try to get more Australians on there like Bronson Reed, but booker man Triple H likes matches with fewer matches so that he can give them more time. Let’s get to it.


Women’s Tag Team Championships: Kabuki Warriors – Asuka & Kairi Sane vs. Candice LeRae & Indi Hartwell (KICKOFF SHOW)

This match is taking place without a story going into it. Hartwell is from Australia, so she gets to compete in her home country, which is cool for her. I think the crowd will be into it because it’s the Kickoff Show match, they’ll probably build to Indi getting the hot tag and I think the LeRae will take the loss for her team. The championship team of Asuka & Sane should retain here.

Winners: Kabuki Warriors – Asuka & Kairi Sane


Women’s Elimination Chamber Match: Becky Lynch vs. Bianca Belair vs. Liv Morgan vs. Tiffany Stratton vs. Naomi vs. Raquel Rodriguez

The winner of this match gets to face the Women’s World Champion (currently Rhea Ripley) at WrestleMania 40.

If you read my reviews regularly then you know I’m going with Becky Lynch here. She was the first woman to qualify for the Chamber and she has been given the most promo time going into the match too. They have also pushed the possible Lynch-Ripley match heavily since the two top women on Raw have been kept apart for most of the last year. I wouldn’t say Lynch is a lock, but she is close to that. You may recall I picked Lynch to win the Royal Rumble. That didn’t happen, which is fine because I like the Bayley story too. If this one doesn’t happen, I’d be very surprised.

There is a good story for Liv Morgan to win because she did get injured (in the storyline) because of a Rhea Ripley attack, but I don’t expect her to get the win. Bianca Belair is always a threat to win any match she’s in. A match with Ripley at WrestleMania would be a big deal because of their star power, but it seems unlikely to me. Naomi has been impressive coming back to WWE. I just don’t see it. I think Tiffany Stratton is going to have a good 2024 on the main roster and I’m happy she’s there. I wouldn’t be shocked if Tiffany does her moonsault off one of the pods in the match. Raquel Rodriguez has the power game and should dominate a lot of the match, but I doubt she wins it.

I’m going with Bianca Belair starting the match as one of the first two women and lasting until the end with Lynch. I think having a long sequence with Belair & Lynch is the way to go for the finish. I’ll go with Lynch getting the win with a Manhandle Slam off the middle turnbuckle.

Wrestler That Lasts The Longest:Bianca Belair

Most Eliminations:Bianca Belair & Becky Lynch with two each

Final Two:Becky Lynch & Bianca Belair

Winner: Becky Lynch


Grayson Waller Effect with Cody Rhodes & Seth “Freakin” Rollins

It should be an entertaining segment with Waller getting cheered in his home country of Australia. I’m going to use this space to outline how I think a major WWE storyline will go.

At Elimination Chamber, Cody & Seth will say they want to face Rock & Roman at WrestleMania 40 Night 1 because Cody wants to get his hands on The Rock for slapping him. That leads to WWE announcing Rock, Reigns, Cody & Seth all on the next Smackdown. I also think Cody & Seth will beat up Grayson Waller and his buddy Austin Theory at this show.

During the promo on Smackdown, The Rock accepts the match while Roman doesn’t like it because Roman thinks he’s the boss and Roman doesn’t want to wrestle back to back nights. So you spend the next month teasing the idea that Rock & Roman might not be getting along as well as it appears.

WM Night 1: Cody pins Roman in a tag team match. There’s a spot where Rock & Reigns mess up, Rock accidentally punches Reigns and Cody hits Cross Rhodes to win. Reigns is pissed at Rock at the end of the show. Cody has to pin Roman so the story is that it may be difficult for Cody to do it two nights in a row.

WM Night 2: Cody pins Roman to win the Undisputed WWE Universal Title. It looks like the usual thing where Roman gets help from The Bloodline. Seth Rollins and Jey Uso end up fighting with Solo and Jimmy Uso at ringside. The Rock appears, Roman wants him to use a chair on Cody but instead, Rock doesn’t use the chair. Cody ends up winning clean after hitting Cross Rhodes three times in a row. I also think Seth Rollins will lose the World Title on night two, but it won’t be the main event.

On the next Raw, The Bloodline kicks The Rock’s ass. That leads to Rock-Reigns whenever they want to do it whether it’s a Saudi show or SummerSlam or even WrestleMania 41 next year.

I certainly would be fine with tweaking some of this stuff along the way. I just think it’s imperative that Cody Rhodes beats Roman Reigns clean and is holding that Undisputed WWE Universal Title at WrestleMania 40. That’s the main goal of all this.


Undisputed WWE Tag Team Championships: The Judgment Day – Damian Priest & Finn Balor vs. New Catch Republic – Pete Dunne & Tyler Bate

Ever since Pete Dunne got his name back, he’s been on a roll with Bate as a team. It’s been fun to see the two talented Brits working together and putting on terrific matches. They earned this spot by winning a four-way and then beating #DIY in another match. I like it when title shots are earned rather than just handed out.

The Judgment Day’s run as Tag Team Champions has been okay. They have had good matches and several of them had cheap endings, but they have also won clean too, which is important. I think in this case, it would have been nice to have more interactions between the teams. The challengers have certainly earned it as I said, but in terms of story, there could have been more done to build this match. Anyway, I expect the champions to retain in what should be a very competitive match.

As I have written many times in my Raw reviews in recent weeks, I feel like the team that beats Priest & Balor for the Tag Team Titles will be The Miz & R-Truth. They aren’t my first choice because I think a team like #DIY, Creed Brothers or The Street Profits should be the team to do it, but I think based on story they’re going to have Truth & Miz win. Truth tried to join The Judgment Day, it led to lots of comedy and now Truth is getting his ass kicked, so I think it all leads to the veterans Miz & Truth getting those titles at WrestleMania.

Winners: The Judgment Day – Damian Priest & Finn Balor


Men’s Elimination Chamber Match: Drew McIntyre vs. Randy Orton vs. Bobby Lashley vs. LA Knight vs. Kevin Owens vs. Logan Paul

The winner of this match gets to challenge the World Heavyweight Champion Seth “Freakin” Rollins at WrestleMania 40.

It should be a great match with a lot of star power. Four of them are former WWE/Universal World Champions while Paul is the current US Champion and Knight is very popular while also being in the WWE Title picture for several months now.

This one is a tougher call than the women’s match because I think Drew McIntyre is considered a favorite to win since he’s been involved heavily on Raw and wants one more shot at Seth “Freakin” Rollins and the World Heavyweight Title. We know that Drew has lost twice to Rollins in title matches, but that booking was before CM Punk got hurt at the Royal Rumble and that canceled the Rollins/Punk match. We also have read about Drew’s contract status for nearly a year because it’s apparently up after WrestleMania or maybe he has re-signed. I think he has re-signed and he’s sticking around, so I think putting the World Title on him at WrestleMania makes a lot of sense. Plus, there’s the obvious story to do in the summer when CM Punk is back and goes after Drew, who is the World Champion. I like that idea a lot.

I also think that they could certainly go with Randy Orton winning this and beating Seth Rollins at WrestleMania 40 as well. It would be a babyface match, but it would be an impressive comeback for Orton after he missed a year and a half of action. Plus, there is that Orton-Rollins going back to 2015 when Orton beat Rollins, but then Seth won the WWE Title later that night because of the Money in the Bank briefcase. They could certainly play into that history.

While I don’t see any of the other guys winning this match, I think we could see a build to another match at WrestleMania 40 within this Chamber bout. That match is between US Champion Logan Paul and LA Knight. I think there will be some interaction between them. I think the logical move is to have Knight pin Paul and then have Knight do a promo about how he should get a US Title match. That sets them up for a WrestleMania 40 match.

As for Kevin Owens and Bobby Lashley, I’m sure they’ll have some good moments in the match. I just don’t see them winning.

I’m picking Drew McIntyre to win, but I was very close to picking Randy Orton. I’d say I’m about 60/40 on that pick.

Wrestler That Lasts The Longest:Drew McIntyre

Most Eliminations: Randy Orton with 3.

Final Two:Drew McIntyre and Randy Orton

Winner: Drew McIntyre


Women’s World Championship: Rhea Ripley (c) vs. Nia Jax

Before I start, check out my good friend James Holder’s incredible feature column about Rhea Ripley right here on TJRWrestling. He did a great job of putting over what makes “Mami” such a special performer.

They have done a nice job of building this match up. Jax has been dominant in nearly every match she has had since coming back. The fact that Jax beat Becky Lynch clean on Raw in January made it obvious that this match was coming and that it was coming at this show with Ripley in the babyface role. Jax is easy to hate and the Aussie fans are going to root for Ripley of course, so it’s a smart match to do in Australia. Jax was born in Australia too, but she was raised in the US.

They can do this match in a classic way where Jax dominates most of the match, Ripley makes the comeback, Jax cuts her off numerous times and Ripley finally completes the comeback to get the win. I think they will tease Ripley going for Riptide throughout the match, she can’t get Jax up and eventually Ripley will do it for the pinfall win.

At the end of the show, I can see Elimination Chamber match winner Becky Lynch going out to the ring and having a staredown with Ripley while Michael Cole screams about how this match is going to happen at WrestleMania 40.

Winner: Rhea Ripley



The Match I’m Looking Forward To The Most

Men’s Elimination Chamber Match.

The Match I Care About The Least

The Women’s Tag Team Title match that was just added late to the card, but that’s only a Kickoff Show match. Other than that, I’d say the Men’s Tag Team Title match.

Longest Match

Men’s Elimination Chamber Match around 40 minutes.

Shortest Match

Damian Priest & Finn Balor vs. Pete Dunne & Tyler Bate around 13 minutes.

Excitement Level on a Scale of 1-10 (1 being low, 10 being high)

It’s a 7.75 out of 10. I’m just a bit under an eight because I think they could have done a better job of getting more wrestlers on the show. I realize they are probably going over three hours and that’s certainly fine with me, but I just think there could have been a bit more on the card. With that said, the matches that will take place should be awesome and I don’t see any of them being close to bad. What will really help this show is that I expect the Perth crowd to be loud the whole night and having 40,000+ people in there with a lot of energy is going to make for a fun atmosphere for sure. I’m excited to see it.

I’ll be back with a review of WWE Elimination Chamber on on Saturday, so check that out live or any time after it’s over. You can also tweet me on X/Twitter at @johnreport as well.
