There has been no official confirmation on who Rousey will face in her first ever WWE fight.

WWE true to its tradition in delivering a surprise package to its fans at the very last moment announced the first ever 7-man Elimination Chamber match ahead of the Universal title match at the showpiece event in April.

Raw general manager Kurt Angle decided that both men could compete in the match after Rollins and Balor both pinned Bray Wyatt at the same time for a three count during a Fatal 5-Way Match to determine that final Elimination Chamber entrant that also included Woken Matt Hardy and Apollo Crews. With the layout of the match already taking shape, there's no word yet whether it will start off as a Triple Threat or whether Balor and Rollins will be stuffed into the same chamber.

In a surprising bit of news, Kurt Angle announced on Raw that the Elimination Chamber would feature seven competitors for the first time in the match's history.

As Elias crawled to the back, Strowman chased him down and used his bass as a weapon, smashing it against his rival's back. Cena is then interrupted by The Miz. After Rollins came out to offer his sympathy for Jordan, "The Architect" pleaded for his own WrestleMania opportunity.

Bayley Vs Sasha Banks is up next. Once again, Elias works the crowd like a pro here and he is quickly becoming one of the most over superstars in the WWE. As multi-man main events go, this was a solid bout.

Unfortunately for her she was finished in just 48 seconds via knockout. Nia Jax coming in to attack them after the match was cool too. I like that they're giving Alexa a little storyline as we build towards Elimination Chamber, and also that Absolution are being booked to long strong. She closed by claiming she will break Asuka's unbeaten streak at Elimination Chamber. With that in mind, Bliss is determined to increase her chances of success by forging an alliance, potentially with an old foe and friend, Mickie James. The subsequent match featured plenty of physicality. Rose followed with her finisher, the Bed of Roses facebuster, to finish James.
