You need to know what’s last. In less than a week, WWE is presenting its annual Elimination Chamber event and this time around, the WWE Championship is on the line inside the show’s title structure. There are six men who could walk out of the show as the WWE Champion and the Elimination Chamber makes any of them a real option. There’s one more thing to determine though.
As announced on WWE.com, this week’s episode of SmackDown Live will feature a six man gauntlet match with the winner earning the right to be the sixth man inside the Elimination Chamber. This week’s gauntlet match will see WWE Champion Daniel Bryan facing off with his five challengers: AJ Styles, Samoa Joe, Randy Orton, Mustafa Ali and Jeff Hardy. The other five spots in the Elimination Chamber will be determined by random order.
These six men have fought recently. Check out this wild brawl from last week:
Opinion: This works as well as anything else and it’s a great way to set up someone as a bit of a favorite in the Elimination Chamber. It’s also a way to dominate a lot of the show as it’s going to be five falls in a row, which should take up a lot of time. As long as the action is good with a logical winner (of which any of the six would be), everything is going to be just fine.
Which of the six should win? Who leaves the pay per view as champion? Let us know in the comments below.
