Report: WWE Moving Date Of Elimination Chamber
Another alteration to the calendar...
Mike Johnson of PWInsider is reporting that WWE is changing the date of its Elimination Chamber pay-per-view.
According to his report, the event will take place on Sunday, February 21, instead of its originally intended date of February 28.
This marks the second time in the past couple days that a WWE pay-per-view has had a change of date. WrestleMania 37, originally scheduled for March 28, will now take place on April 11.
No reason has been given to the Chamber's change of date. However, it should be noted that AEW Revolution had already been scheduled for Saturday, February 27.
Traditionally one of the last pay-per-view stops on the road to WrestleMania, the Elimination Chamber has usually determined a challenger to one of the top belts at "The Showcase of the Immortals."
The 2020 Elimination Chamber was the last WWE pay-per-view to take place prior to the pandemic altering the course of our daily lives (and thus was one of the most recent wrestling events with a capacity crowd). Held on March 8 of last year in Philadelphia, the main event saw Shayna Baszler dominate a six-woman Chamber match en route to challenging Becky Lynch for the Raw Women's title at WrestleMania 36 in Orlando.
