Our next step as we travel down the Road to WrestleMania takes place on Sunday night with the presentation of the annual Elimination Chamber event. The Elimination Chamber show each year carries serious weight in regards to the prominent WrestleMania storylines, and this year will be no different.
The Elimination Chamber matches will, of course, headline the event. Two competitors begin the match in the ring with a cage surrounding the squared circle and four other competitors in pods surrounding the ring. Every five minutes, one of the four remaining competitors is chosen randomly to enter the match. Competitors are eliminated via pinfall or submission until one is left standing as the winner.
WWE Elimination Chamber goes down from inside the ThunderDome at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg, Florida, on Sunday, Feb. 21. The event will begin at 7 p.m. ET and stream live on the WWE Network. The kickoff show to help get the Elimination Chamber festivities started will begin one hour prior at 6 p.m.
Let’s take a look at what we know about Sunday’s Elimination Chamber event.
