Some of the stops on the road. We’re less than two months away from WrestleMania 35 and that means there is a lot to be done before we get to the biggest show of the year. In this case that means two pay per views between the Royal Rumble and WrestleMania, with the first one of those being Elimination Chamber. Some stuff went down there, but what does it mean for the champions?
Counting the Kickoff Show, there were six title matches at this year’s Elimination Chamber event with two titles changing hands. Both the SmackDown Tag Team Titles and Intercontinental Title had new holders after Sunday, with the Usos and Finn Balor winning the titles respectively. The Cruiserweight Title, the Raw Women’s Title and the SmackDown World Title were retained.
This didn’t help things. Check out a huge crash that helped the Usos win the titles:

Opinion: It was an interesting night for the title holders here with a few titles changing hands, though not exactly anything major. Neither title change was exactly obvious, though I can’t say I’m surprised at either of them taking place. What we got was good enough, though I could have gone with Kofi Kingston winning the WWE Championship in the main event.
What did you think of the show? Which titles should have changed hands? Let us know in the comments below.
