Cruiserweight Title Match To Take Place On WWE Elimination Chamber Kickoff Show

WWE announced today, certainly to the shock of many, that the planned Cruiserweight title match between champion Buddy Murphy and challenger Akira Tozawa will take place on the Kickoff show preceding the pay-per-view.


The match will mark the third consecutive pay-per-view in which the Cruiserweight title is defended on the Kickoff show.

This leaves six matches for the actual pay-per-view card itself, including:

-Raw Women's Champion Ronda Rousey vs. Ruby Riott

-SmackDown Tag Team Champions The Miz and Shane McMahon vs. The Usos (no word at this time if Jimmy Uso's recent arrest will cause any sort of change)

-Braun Strowman vs. Baron Corbin in a no disqualification match

-Intercontinental Champion Bobby Lashley and Lio Rush vs. Finn Balor in a handicap match, with the belt on the line

-Bayley and Sasha Banks vs. The IIconics vs. Nia Jax and Tamina vs. Mandy Rose and Sonya Deville vs. Liv Morgan and Sarah Logan vs. Naomi and Carmella, for the WWE Women's Tag Team titles, inside the Elimination Chamber

-WWE Champion Daniel Bryan vs. AJ Styles vs. Samoa Joe vs. Kofi Kingston vs. Jeff Hardy vs. Randy Orton in an Elimination Chamber match
