The 6 participants in the WWE Championship Elimination Chamber match have been revealed. WWE Champion Bobby Lashley will be defending the title at the event of the same name against Austin Theory, AJ Styles, Riddle, Austin Theory and Brock Lesnar.
The announcement that Bobby Lashley would be defending the championship inside the Elimination Chamber was made shortly before Raw went on the air. Lashley and MVP would come to the ring in the opening segment of the January 31st edition of Raw, with both men protesting the upcoming match. This brought out Brock Lesnar, who was dressed for combat and demanded a rematch for the WWE Championship on Raw. After a heated confrontation, The All Mighty exited the ring. WWE Official Adam Pearce then officially announced that Lesnar will be one of the contestants inside the Elimination Chamber.
While Brock Lesnar and Seth Rollins were announced for the match, the remaining entrants had to gain entry via qualifying matches. Austin Theory defeated Kevin Owens, AJ Styles defeated Rey Mysterio and Riddle defeated Otis to gain their respective spots inside the structure.
The Elimination Chamber Premium Live Event will take place on Saturday February 19th and will air live from Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.
