Sami Zayn was eliminated from The Bloodline at the Royal Rumble by Roman Reigns. On Feb. 18, Zayn could get revenge on The Tribal Chief at the Elimination Chamber in Montreal.
The biggest stars from Raw and SmackDown will take their talents to Canada for one of WWE's most intense and grueling events in the promotion's last pay-per-view of the year before WrestleMania 39. The Elimination Chamber is a massive chain-linked circular steel structure that encloses the ring with four inner enclosures outside each ring corner. Each match begins with two wrestlers in the ring and a wrestler in each of the four chambers which open one at a time after a few minutes. Entrants are eliminated by pinfall or submission.
This year will feature two elimination chamber matches with massive stakes: Austin Theory puts up the United States championship and a six-woman No. 1 contender match to challenge for Bianca Belair's Raw Women's title. Also on the card is a mixed tag team match featuring the husband and wife duo of Edge and Beth Phoenix as they look for revenge against Finn Bálor and Rhea Ripley.
The main event will be the highly anticipated matchup between Reigns and Zayn for the undisputed WWE universal championship in front of Zayn's hometown fans in Montreal. Can Reigns put Zayn in his rearview mirror for good? Or will Zayn get payback after his ouster from his beloved faction?
