WWE Elimination Chamber results: Roman Reigns sets up Wrestlemania 34 clash with Brock Lesnar. Find out the series of events here!
The road to Wrestlemania. 34 became a lot clearer with the W.W.E. Elimination Chamber on Sunday (Monday morning in India).
Alexa Bliss won the inaugural women’s Elimination Chamber match to retain her W.W.E. Raw women’s championship and set up a mouth-watering clash with Asuka for the ‘showcase of the immortals.’ Roman Reigns was predictably victorious in 7-men Elimination Chamber match and will face Brock Lesnar for the W.W.E. Universal Championship at Wrestlemania 34.
However, there were no surprises and the results were almost predictable. The other matches had not much to offer and were underwhelming, to put it mildly.
