Royal Rumble Results 2019
The Royal Rumble has come and gone, meaning we’re now on the Road. Though, there are two more pay-per-view events set to lead us in, before we reach the biggest show of the year. The first of those events is Elimination Chamber, which takes place this year on Sunday, Feb. 17 inside the Toyota Center in Houston.
There’s still a couple more weeks before the Elimination Chamber event goes down, but let us now have a look at the card as it is shaping out, with one massive champion vs. champion showdown already been made official. Elimination Chamber will begin with a kickoff show at 6 p.m. ET prior to the main card begins one hour later at 7 p.m. CBS Sports will be previewing Elimination Chamber during the next few weeks, so be sure to stay with us.
2019 WWE Elimination Chamber matches
WWE Championship — Daniel Bryan (c) vs. AJ Styles vs. Randy Orton vs. Samoa Joe vs. Jeff Hardy vs. Mustafa Ali (Elimination Chamber): Following Bryan’s unveiling of his new WWE title that is constructed entirely of hemp, Triple H forced the WWE champion within this defense after he degraded the old title on SmackDown and the five men all came out to say their case. These five men together in this match has the makings of being an Elimination Chamber bout to remember.
Women’s Tag Team Championship — Nia Jax & Tamina vs. Riott Squad vs. Mandy Rose & Sonya Deville vs. three teams TBD (Elimination Chamber): History will be made in Elimination Chamber when six label teams compete for the right to be called WWE women’s tag team champions as the names are being reincarnated. Two teams have already punched their tickets while one from SmackDown Live simply declared themselves in the match, by qualifying on Raw. Three teams still remain to be inserted into the mix.
SmackDown Tag Team Championship — The Miz & Shane McMahon (c) vs. The Usos: After winning the tag titles in the Royal Rumble, it did not take long to figure out who the”best tag team in the world” would put their championship on the line against first. The Usos earned that opportunity by emerging victorious in a fatal-four way elimination match, two days later.
2019 WWE Elimination Chamber forecasts
None of those matches have been officially announced at this time.
Intercontinental Championship — Bobby Lashley (c) vs. Finn Balor: With Lashley’s attack on Balor on the Raw after Royal Rumble, these two seemed destined for an intercontinental title program. This ought to be a feud that carries at least into WrestleMania’s first game between Balor and Lashley.
Becky Lynch vs. Charlotte FlairWe learned on SmackDown that the beef between these two best friends is not done just yet. They brawled to start the show after Lynch formally challenged Ronda Rousey for the women’s title at WrestleMania, so they set up for another one-on-one encounter. Should this happen it will be interesting to see if a Flair victory earns a way to the WrestleMania main event to her.
United States Championship — R-Truth (c) vs. Shinsuke Nakamura vs. Rusev: With two title changes in 3 days, the U.S. name is in a weird state right now. It feels like a triple threat match at the PPV could be to be able to sort out things.
