The next pay-per-view on the WWE schedule is Super ShowDown, then all eyes will be looking ahead to Elimination Chamber on March 8.
WWE has announced that Natalya, Liv Morgan, Shayna Baszler, Asuka, Ruby Riott and Sarah Logan will compete inside the Elimination Chamber, and the winner will go on to challenge Becky Lynch for the Raw Women’s Championship at WrestleMania 36.
So far this is the only match WWE has officially announced for the show, although the Wells Fargo Center is advertising Roman Reigns, King Corbin, Robert Roode, Shinsuke Nakamura, Daniel Bryan, and Braun Strowman for another Elimination Chamber match which would see the winner go on to challenge The Fiend for the Universal Championship at Mania.
WWE posted the following announcement:
“Six women will compete in the Elimination Chamber for an opportunity to challenge Raw Women’s Champion Becky Lynch at WrestleMania 36
The road to an opportunity against Becky Lynch for the Raw Women’s Title at WrestleMania goes through the Elimination Chamber.
Natalya, Liv Morgan, Shayna Baszler, Asuka, Ruby Riott and Sarah Logan will step inside the dreaded structure at the Elimination Chamber pay-per-view on Sunday, March 8, with the winner challenging Lynch at The Show of Shows, as first reported by The Wrap.
For Baszler — who already has her sights on Lynch after taking a bite out of The Man on Raw — it represents a chance to make the match she wants a reality. The only two-time NXT Women’s Champion has plenty of experience in high-pressure situations, though the Chamber represents an entirely new dynamic for The Queen of Spades.
In fact, the only two women with previous Elimination Chamber experience are former allies — Morgan and Logan — who represented the now-defunct Riott Squad in last year’s Women’s Elimination Chamber Match to crown the first-ever Women’s Tag Team Champions.
Both Morgan and Logan have shown the WWE Universe new sides to themselves in recent weeks, but neither made as big of an impact as their former leader, Riott, did in her shocking return to Raw. Morgan, initially delighted to see her friend back on the scene after a nine-month absence due to injury, was instead treated to a savage beatdown and apparent loss of any regard for their former bond.
Asuka — one-half of the Women’s Tag Team Champions — and Natalya are no strangers to the limelight either, with Asuka a former Royal Rumble winner and women’s champion who has challenged for the title on the Grandest Stage of Them All, while Natalya has competed in more pay-per-view matches than any other woman in WWE history.
