Reports: WWE’s current plans for Elimination Chamber and Roman Reigns
WWE Elimination Chamber is set to take place on February 21, 2021. This past week on Monday Night RAW, it was announced that the WWE Champion Drew McIntyre will be defending his title inside the Elimination Chamber against five former WWE Champions from the Red brand.
According to Dave Meltzer in the latest Wrestling Observer Newsletter, there are no plans to have a women’s Elimination Chamber match this year. He further added that Universal Champion Roman Reigns will be defending his title inside the Elimination Chamber as well. The participants are not confirmed but Kevin Owens would likely be a part of the match.
At press time there was to be a Smackdown match with Roman Reigns defending the title. We don’t know the participants, other than Kevin Owens is an obvious one.
There are several Superstars on SmackDown who could definitely use this opportunity to compete for the Universal title inside the Elimination Chamber. The likes of Cesaro, Shinsuke Nakamura, Daniel Bryan, Rey Mysterio, and even Seth Rollins could be interesting additions to the match.
