WWE is headed Down Under. The promotion returns to Perth, Australia this weekend for the first time since 2018 when the Elimination Chamber PPV event arrives at the Optus Stadium. The event is a homecoming of sorts for women's world champion Rhea Ripley.
The Elimination Chamber ranks among WWE's most anticipated annual events. The card is anchored by its namesake. Six superstars are locked in a steel structure. Two superstars begin the match with additional entrants being released at timed intervals. Eliminations occur via pinfall or submission. The card often has WrestleMania implications, being sandwiched between the Royal Rumble and WWE's biggest show of the year. Men's and women's Elimination Chamber matches have been announced with title implications.
The women's Elimination Chamber match will cement a challenger for Ripley's women's world title. Ripley returns home to Australia in February with a major roadblock between her and WrestleMania. Ripley must overcome challenger Nia Jax if she wants to enter WrestleMania 40 as champion. The winner of the men's Chamber match will challenge Seth Rollins for the world heavyweight title at the big showcase.
The promotion made a late addition to the kickoff show on Friday when WWE announced that The Kabuki Warriors would defend the women's tag team titles against Indi Hartwell and Candice LaRae. The Kabuki Warriors, made up of Asuka and Kairi Sane who are also members of Damage Control, won the titles in late January. It's their second run with the titles after previously holding the crown in 2019 before Sane's departure from WWE in 2020.
Take a look below at the confirmed matches for Elimination Chamber and take a glance at the crystal ball of what may come. The event streams live on Peacock on Feb. 24 with the main card starting at 5 a.m. ET.
