Two New Matches Added To WWE Elimination Chamber

Just eight nights away...

Now that Super ShowDown's out of the way, WWE can begin assembling in earnest the card for next Sunday's Elimination Chamber pay-per-view.

On Friday night's edition of SmackDown, two matches were added to the show, one of which will take place inside the titular structure.

The SmackDown World Tag Team titles will be on the line, as John Morrison and The Miz defend the belts inside the Chamber against The New Day, The Usos, Heavy Machinery, Lucha House Party, and Dolph Ziggler and Robert Roode.

Also set for the card, the Intercontinental title will be on the line in a three-on-one handicap match. Champion Braun Strowman defends against Shinsuke Nakamura, Sami Zayn, and Cesaro.

The match was originally supposed to be Strowman vs. previous champion Nakamura, but after a remark Strowman made during the contract signing that it was just going to be him vs all three anyway, the heels all signed the contract (because reasons), making it a handicap match.

WWE Elimination Chamber takes place in Philadelphia on Sunday, March 8, and currently has three matches:

*Elimination Chamber match to determine Raw Women's champion Becky Lynch's opponent at WrestleMania 36: Shayna Baszler vs. Asuka vs. Ruby Riott vs. Sarah Logan vs. Liv Morgan vs. Natalya

*Elimination Chamber match for the SmackDown Tag Team titles: The Miz and John Morrison (c) vs. The New Day vs. The Usos vs. Heavy Machinery vs. Lucha House Party vs. Dolph Ziggler and Robert Roode

*WWE Intercontinental/Handicap match: Braun Strowman (c) vs. Shinsuke Nakamura, Cesaro, and Sami Zayn
