WWE has ‘twists and turns’ planned for Elimination Chamber



WWE has loaded up the lineup for Saturday’s Elimination Chamber event, the last big show before WrestleMania 38 in early April.

The top matches include WWE Champion Bobby Lashley vs. Brock Lesnar vs. Seth Rollins vs. Austin Theory vs. AJ Styles vs. Riddle in an Elimination Chamber Match, Universal Champion Roman Reigns vs. Goldberg, and Raw Women’s Champion Becky Lynch vs. Lita.

Dave Meltzer noted during today’s Wrestling Observer Radio that WWE has twists and turns planned for this show, although there’s no word yet on exactly what those will be.

“Roman Reigns and Goldberg should be very short, it should be a lot of spears. Obviously, Roman Reigns has to win I would think unless they’re doing a storyline where Lesnar costs Reigns the match. Then what Bill would defend the title at Mania? I don’t know, I mean it’s possible. There are twists and turns. I was told twists and turns coming on this show, so I don’t know what those would be. I know that there was a push to do title vs title which means Brock wins the Chamber and Roman beats Goldberg. I think most people kind of are expecting that. For Brock to lose in the Chamber match, I mean, I don’t know how you beat him, because again, it’s like, they haven’t done a lot of interference in Chamber matches. I suppose you can do it this time, but it would have to take that.”

He continued, “I don’t see, like, someone scoring a fall on Brock Lesnar. It makes no sense at all to do that building up Mania because the whole idea of Mania has been to maximize Reigns and maximize Lesnar and make them the two biggest stars and protect them completely.”

Lesnar did drop the WWE Title to Bobby Lashley at the Royal Rumble, but it was due to interference by Reigns. Meltzer added that there are a lot of different ways they could go.
