WWE are adding a surprise new match to Elimination Chamber, especially with the loss of Lacey Evans vs. Asuka for the Raw Women’s title. WWE pulled Roman Reigns from his originally scheduled Elimination Chamber match.
The WWE announced a surprise women’s tag title match, pitting Bianca Belair and Sasha Banks against Shayna Baszler and Nia Jax.
Sheamus discussed participating in the Raw Elimination Chamber match for the Universal Title in a new DC101 radio interview, “To me it’s the most brutal match. People thought it’s Hell In A Cell, which is a pretty tough match as well, but when it comes to Chamber, you’re in there with five other guys, you know. It’s just a different level of viciousness, a different level of, just like, aggression and danger, said Sheamus.
He said about pinning McIntyre on Raw for the right to enter last, “Normally, yeah, you’re last, normally you take that as a bad thing, as a negative thing. But in this situation, coming in last, it’s the best, the best possible situation for me. I get to watch all the other five guys knock the lumps out of each other and I’ll walk out fresh as a daisy. Then just start throwing a couple of Brogue kicks around, know what I mean,” exclaimed Sheamus before stating that while there are six men in the match, only two of them really matter.
“As far as I’m concerned, these other guys are just passengers. Should have had the match between me and Drew one-on-one for the title, that was promised me. But obviously now we’re in this situation. But at the end of the day, regardless of these passengers, nobody stands a chance against me.”
