WWE Elimination Chamber is less than a week away from giving us a ton of title matches. The upcoming event even includes a match for the new WWE Women’s Tag Team Championship. Here is the match card so far:
WWE Women’s Tag Team Championship
The WWE Women’s Tag Team Championship match will take place inside the Elimination Chamber. The Raw brand held qualifiers while SmackDown announced its participants. Three teams from each brand will compete for the chance to have the tag titles on their brand. WWE has not made it clear if the titles will be an exclusive to the brand that wins.
Prediction: Bayley and Banks have been a tag team for a long time and I think they will make history by winning the match.
WWE Cruiserweight Championship
Akira Tozawa will be facing Buddy Murphy for the WWE Cruiserweight Championship. Murphy defeated Tozawa and three other superstars at the Royal Rumble to retain the title. During an episode of 205 Live, Tozawa defeated three other superstars in a fatal four way match to earn another opportunity at the title. Tozawa briefly held the title when Neville was around as the champion.
Prediction: Buddy Murphy holds on to the title.
Daniel Bryan will have to defend his championship against five other superstars in the Elimination Chamber. It all began when Styles confronted the champion, who recently unveiled a custom belt. The segment involving Styles and Bryan later turned into a brawl with other superstars such as Orton and Ali. On the upcoming episode, a gauntlet match will be held to determine who enters the match last.
Prediction: I don’t see the WWE Championship changing hands this early, especially with what Bryan has recently done, introducing a custom belt and bringing Erick Rowan into the mix.
WWE SmackDown Tag Team Championship
The Miz and Shane McMahon will have a tough task when they face The Usos. The new tag team champions will go up against a team that has already held the titles on numerous occasions. The Usos earned the title opportunity after defeating Heavy Machinery, The Bar and The New Day.
Prediction: The Miz and Shane find a way to win. I don’t see this team losing the titles right away, unless there is some feud between The Miz and Shane planned for this year.
WWE Raw Women’s Championship
Earlier this month, WWE Raw Women’s Champion Ronda Rousey issued an open challenge. The Riott Squad responded to the challenge and Morgan stepped in the ring to face Rousey. She was quickly defeated and Logan decided to challenge Rousey right away. Logan ended up losing the match but Ruby Riott decided to stay away from the challenge. Riott later said that she could defeat the women’s champion at any time. A match between the two was later announced for the PPV.
Prediction: Rousey easily defeated two of the members of the Riott Squad. I think she will make it three at the event. I just don’t see Rousey losing the title now.
WWE Elimination Chamber (2019) has a total of five title matches but SmackDown and Raw each have an episode before the event takes place. This means that we could see one or two matches added to the card before Sunday.
