The first match for the WWE Elimination Chamber Premium Live Event has been announced. At the show, new WWE Champion Bobby Lashley will be defending the title inside the Elimination Chamber structure against five competitors who are yet to be announced.
The Elimination Chamber Premium Live Event will be taking place at Jeddah, Saudi Arabia for the first time in the history of the event, and will also be the first time that a Chamber match has taken place inside the kingdom of Saudi Arabia. As this is the final Premium Live Event before WrestleMania, it is expected that whoever walks out of the Elimination Chamber with the championship will hold the gold until the most stupendous two-night WrestleMania in history.
This will not be Bobby Lashley’s first time competing in the Elimination Chamber. At the infamous ECW December to Dismember pay-per-view in 2006, Lashley was victorious in the extreme version of the match. The WWE Champion has acknowledged this previous victory on social media:
Elimination Chamber 2022 will air live on Saturday, February 19th. At the time of writing, no other matches have been confirmed to take place.
