WWE recently released local advertisements in Philadelphia that might have spoiled the participants for the men’s Elimination Chamber match.
On Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer said that the six names that have been announced so far for Elimination Chamber are simply a temporary line-up meant to “sell tickets.”
“Yeah, so the six names that were announced that was just a line-up — this is going to sound so ridiculous, but you know what I mean — it was a line-up sent to sell tickets, but they hadn’t decided. They’re going to have an elimination chamber. The winner which is likely going to be Roman Reigns is gonna face Bray Wyatt for the championship at WrestleMania, but who the six names are [in the Chamber match] they just threw six names there.”
“It’s like it might be those six and it might be other guys, Roman Reigns is obviously going to be in there. It very well might not be Bobby Roode [in the match] it was just like ‘send them six guys,’ but who the six people are they just threw six names there.”
WWE required names for the Elimination Chamber in order to interest fans in Philadelphia, so that they will buy tickets. WWE can always change who are advertised for the event as the card is likely to change at any time.
Rumors suggest that Roman Reigns will win the Chamber match and go on to face The Fiend for the Universal Title at Wrestlemania 36.
