Elimination Chamber Update

After tonight’s WWE Raw, we now know four matches for the May 31st WWE Network exclusive show, which emanates from Corpus Christie, TX. Here is the card thus far:

Elimination Chamber Match for Tag Team Championship: New Day (c) vs. Los Matadors vs. Lucha Dragons vs. Prime Time Players vs. Tyson Kidd & Cesaro vs. The Ascension

Elimination Chamber Match for Vacant Intercontinental Championship: Dolph Ziggler vs. Rusev vs. Sheamus vs. Ryback vs. King Barrett vs. R-Truth

WWE World Heavyweight Championship: Seth Rollins vs. Dean Ambrose

United States Championship: John Cena vs. NXT Champion Kevin Owens

Drew’s Take: Wow, that’s one hell of a card for this “PPV” Network show. The two chamber matches should be good, as they almost always are, and I’m sure the tag team match will be an absolute train wreck. To me, the most newsworthy match announced is the US title match with Cena & Owens. Owens made his Raw debut tonight and laid out Cena with his pop-up powerbomb. This was following a great promo exchange between the two, which made you want to see the match happen ASAP. It’ll be interesting to see whether Owens will enter the match still holding the NXT title, as that adds an interesting element to the match, with the story being that Owens could possibly be the NXT Champion and US Champion simultaneously. In any event, their segment on Monday was the highlight of a pretty good Raw show, and is the most intriguing match currently slated for the show on May 31st.
