There are just two PPVs to be held before WWE hold WrestleMania 35 in April. Sunday February 17 sees the Elimination Chamber PPV being held with two title matches taking place inside the steel structure. Who will come out on top as champions?
Bryan Odds on to Retain WWE Title
Daniel Bryan won the WWE Title last year from AJ Styles but this weekend he faces five challengers in the Elimination Chamber. This is held inside a steel structure with two wrestlers beginning the match with the others locked in chambers. Every five minutes a chamber opens and a new wrestler joins the battle. Eliminations happen via pinfall, submission but you can’t be disqualified so anything can happen.
Bryan has to defend his title against AJ Styles, Randy Orton, Samoa Joe, Jeff Hardy and Kofi Kingston (who replaces the injured Mustafa Ali). After winning a match on Smackdown, Orton will be the last to enter the match and he’s 8/1 (9.0) at SkyBet to win the title.
It’s unclear at the moment what the WWE Title match is going to be at WrestleMania. Another Bryan v Styles match looks unlikely after several recent matches. Keeping the title on Bryan is the expected result of this match and he’s 11/50 (1.22) at Unibet to see off his challengers.
Women’s Tag Champions to Be Crowned
It’s 30 years since WWE had Women’s Tag Team Champions. With the growth in women’s wrestling in recent years, finally new champions are to be crowned and it’ll happen inside the Elimination Chamber.
Three teams from Raw and three from Smackdown have qualified for this title match. Current favourites to win the title are Bayley and Sasha Banks who are 1/2 (1.5) at SkyBet. The talk is that Banks is injured and Bayley might even wrestle this match on her own!
Other contenders in this title match include the team of Nia Jax and Tamina Snuka. They are only 7/2 (4.5) to become tag champions ahead of the team of Mandy Rose and Sonja DeVille who are 7/1(8.0) at SkyBet.
