WWE Elimination Chamber 2021 Preview: Top champion turns heel, Massive return, Last-minute replacement?
We are just a few hours away from the next major stop on the Road to WrestleMania 37, WWE Elimination Chamber 2021. To be honest, there’s a lot of uncertainty over the current match card and we might be in for multiple last-minute changes or even surprises tonight.So, to get you ready for the pay-per-view, here is the preview of WWE Elimination Chamber 2021 with everything you need to know before the show. Comment down and let us know your predictions for tonight.
#6 SmackDown Elimination Chamber match for a Universal Championship title shot
The first of the two Elimination Chamber matches of the night will feature six Superstars from SmackDown competing against each other in what is sure to be a thrilling bout. These Superstars are – Jey Uso, Kevin Owens, King Corbin, Sami Zayn, Cesaro, and Daniel Bryan. The winner of this match will go on to face the Universal Champion Roman Reigns later on the same night.
While someone like Kevin Owens or Daniel Bryan could be the possible winner, reports suggest that Cesaro will be the one to win the Elimination Chamber and face Roman Reigns at the pay-per-view. Cesaro has been getting a massive push on SmackDown lately and a battle against the Universal Champion would further raise his momentum.
#5 Roman Reigns (c) vs. Winner of the Elimination Chamber match – Universal Championship
Being the massive heel that Roman Reigns is right now, he would likely come out to defend his title immediately after the Elimination Chamber match to have the maximum possible advantage over the exhausted winner. While WWE could tell a great underdog story with someone like Cesaro coming close to defeating Reigns, it is highly unlikely that anyone but him will walk out of Elimination Chamber with the Universal Championship around their waists.
The rumored match for WrestleMania 37 is Roman Reigns defending the Universal Championship against the winner of the 2021 men’s Royal Rumble match, Edge. Can we see Edge possibly appear at Elimination Chamber and have a massive staredown against Roman Reigns, or even better, deliver a Spear to him?#4 Bobby Lashley (c) vs. Keith Lee vs. Riddle for the United States Championship at WWE Elimination Chamber
The United States Championship is set to be defended at WWE Elimination Chamber tonight in a massive triple threat match as Bobby Lashley will defend his title against Keith Lee and Riddle. However, reports have suggested that Keith Lee might miss Elimination Chamber and get removed from this match.
There is no official confirmation about the same from WWE as the match is still advertised to be a triple threat. However, we could be in for a last-minute change or even replacement with WWE announcing another Superstar to take the place of Keith Lee in the match. Who could it be?
#3 Asuka (c) vs. Lacey Evans (?) for the RAW Women’s Championship
Another announced match for WWE Elimination Chamber match with a lot of uncertainty around it is RAW Women’s Champion Asuka defending her title against Lacey Evans. Now, Lacey Evans announced that she is pregnant on RAW last week and reports have revealed that she is indeed pregnant and can’t possibly compete at Elimination Chamber due to the same.
However, WWE is still advertising the match with even Asuka promoting it in one of her recent tweets, leaving the fans in a state of confusion. This is yet another match that could see a last-minute change with some other Superstar challenging Asuka instead of Lacey Evans.It’d be interesting to witness how WWE deals with the entire Lacey Evans pregnancy angle as the storyline is trying to imply that the father could be WWE Hall of Famer, Ric Flair.
