WWE Elimination Chamber 2017: It has been not even a month that we experienced an action-packed WWE Royal Rumble 2017 and we are all set to witness yet another intriguing session inside the ring when the Blue franchise of WWE will be up for its Pay-Per-View show – the WWE Elimination Chamber 2017. With only a couple of days left before the much-awaited event, we bring up the already set Match Cards alongside the WWE rumors that are making round and the TV listings & Live Streaming details.
Elimination Chamber Match
The road to the Wrestlemania 33 is going to be a prime concern as we approach the WWE Elimination Chamber 2017. It all began in the Royal Rumble where we have had a number of surprise packages of which the triumph of Randy Orton is something that many wouldn’t have had an idea about. The Elimination Chamber Match set to be fought out between six heavyweights. The focus of all the action will definitely be John Cena who will be making an appearance for the sixth occasion of which he has managed to win three. He is currently the holder of the WWE Championship title, and that’s what they will be fighting for. Cena’s prime concern is definitely going to be The Intercontinental Champion, Dean Ambrose. The other competitors are going to be Baron Corbin, Bray Wyatt, The Miz and AJ Styles whom Cena defeated on his way to the record-equaling title.
The winner of the Elimination Chamber match will set up a date with Randy Orton for a fight in the Wrestlemania 33 which has been the most popular PPV for WWE over the years. It will be really great to John Cena winning the Elimination Chamber match for it will set the stage for a redemption of the great rivalry that Cena and Orton shares between themselves.
So it will be interesting to notice who will be the winner because it won’t be too much of a surprise if AJ Styles wins the match which is incidentally going to be his first appearance in the WWE Elimination Chamber. He has the face of the WWE Smackdown for quite a while now which keeps the possibility of him winning the match alive. Chances of Baron Corbin, Dean Ambrose, Bray Wyatt and The Miz winning the match looks not very much plausible. But the possibilities simply can’t be ruled out completely for we have seen huge surprises on a number of occasions, the most recent one being Orton’s triumph in the Battle Royale.
However, having said all the possibilities, it should be mentioned that John Cena is undoubtedly the frontrunner to win the match which will set him up for a mouth-watering Wrestlemania 33 match between Orton and Cena.
Tag Team Turmoil
This is something that will definitely be on the radar of most of the fans as they would like to see how things pan out in this match. Six Tag Teams are in contention, and the format of the match is one thing that has been subject to a lot of speculation. Before going into the complexities of the format, let’s have a look at the teams who are set to take part in the Tag Team Turmoil. The teams include The WWE Smackdown Tag Team Champion American Alpha, The Ascension, Heath Slater and Rhyno, The Usos, The Vaudevillians and the Breezangos.
Now coming to the possible format of the match, there are two possible ways in which the match can take place. The first one states that the six teams will take the stage one-by-one. When one of the two contestants gets eliminated, the next team takes the stage. And the Tag Team which manages to stay until the end is going to be announced the winner of the Tag Team Turmoil. The second one is a bit different where four teams enter the stage from four sides and once the teams start getting eliminated other teams slowly start making their appearances. But the chances are high that Tag Team Turmoil in the WWE Elimination Chamber 2017 is going to take the first route for there are only six teams scheduled to lock horns against each other. It will be real fun to come across the tag team match at the WWE Elimination Chamber 2017.
This is something that many have been waiting to watch as we have Alexa Bliss and Naomi scheduled to face each other in what is going to be a really entertaining encounter. But what will be really interesting to watch out for is Naomi clinching the title beating Alexa Bliss. It is definitely going to be lot tougher having said than done for Alexa is a tough nut to crack. Moreover, it will be really a bold step on behalf of WWE to hand over the title to someone else with the Wrestlemania 33 knocking at the door. So in this upcoming Alexa Bliss vs Naomi match card in the WWE Elimination Chamber 2017 will have something that the fans haven’t come across for quite some time.
Nikki Bella vs Natalya
This just could be the perfect start to the beginning of the end for Nikki Bella if she manages to steal a win from Natalya who has been a strong customer when it comes to matter inside the ring. This is a non-title match, but there will be some intense actions considering the fact that it has been quite a while that these two ladies are locked in an incredible feud. A win for Nikki will really provide Nikki with the much-needed momentum. And if the WWE rumors turn out to be true, that could be just the perfect thing for Nikki Bella before the tag team match with John Cena against The Miz and Maryse at the Wrestlemania 33. As things stand, it will be really difficult to choose from between these two, and the match stands perfectly in balance for a mouth-watering encounter in the WWE Elimination Chamber 2017.
Becky Lynch vs Mickie James
The Becky Lynch vs Mickie James encounter is definitely not going to be the one that fans would be much excited about primarily because of the fact that the match is not a title match. However, that never reduces the credibility of the match as we would have the experienced Mickie James locking horns with Becky Lynch. It was Mickie James who played an instrumental role in Blyss missing out on an opportunity to regain the title. So there are enough reasons for the two known figures to engage in a spicy fight. And this is something you would not like to miss out on.
Randy Orton vs Luke Harper
This one also falls into the list of the matches which haven’t managed to match the hype of the other match cards that are scheduled to take place in the WWE Elimination Chamber 2017. And this match could turn out to be one of the best as we have Randy Orton lined up to face Luke Harper who has been recently kicked out of the Wyatt family. Randy Orton is waiting for the shot at the Wrestlemania title after a surprise win at the Royal Rumble 2017.
Kalisto and Apollo Crews vs Dolph Ziggler
This match is the one that has received the least hype as two faces will be up against one heel in a handicap match. However, in WWE you never know as Kalisto and Apollo Crews vs Dolph Ziggler might just turn out to be an exciting encounter.
