On the card. We are on the Road To WrestleMania but there are a few things that have to be covered on the way there. This includes at least one more major event in the form of Elimination Chamber, which will be airing from Australia for the first time ever. That kind of show is going to sell itself, but now we have a major match set featuring a home country star.
IN CASE YOU MISSED IT: The Other Way: WWE Reveals Plans For Rhea Ripley’s WrestleMania Challenger
Over the last few weeks, Nia Jax has been attacking Women’s World Champion Rhea Ripley. This week on Monday Night Raw, General Manager Adam Pearce announced that Jax will be challenging for the title at Elimination Chamber on February 24. Jax then came to the ring and attacked Ripley again. The match will be held in Ripley’s home country of Australia and she has been heavily featured in the event’s advertising.
It’s a big match. Check out how we got here:
Opinion: This is one of those matches that has been all but set for a few weeks now and all they had to do was make it official. Ripley is one of the biggest stars in WWE and she will probably be the focal point of the entire event. Having her get to slay the giant in her home country will work rather well and that is what they have set up over the last few weeks. Now just make the match work well.
What do you think of the setup? How will the match go? Let us know in the comments below.
