All WWE Elimination Chamber Participants Confirmed But One

The final men's spot will be decided on next week's Raw.

All of the participants for both Elimination Chamber matches have been confirmed, save for one entrant in the men's bout. The matches - which will take place on the Raw-exclusive Elimination Chamber pay per view - are set to happen on February 25th.

The vacant spot in the men's Elimination Chamber match will be decided on next week's Monday Night Raw, as four Superstars who lost a qualifying bout will be given a second chance. A fatal four-way has been booked between Finn Balor, Bray Wyatt, Matt Hardy, and Apollo Crews.

The favourite looks to be Balor, who seems to be in the midst of a push after his strong showing in the men's Royal Rumble match. The Irishman entered at no. 2 and became the bout's ironman, lasting longer than any other competitor and eliminating four opponents. He made the final four before being eliminated by John Cena, having lasted 57 minutes.

The five confirmed entrants in the men's Elimination Chamber match are Cena, Braun Strowman, The Miz, Elias, and Roman Reigns. The winner will earn a Universal Championship match against Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania 34 in New Orleans - and with Reigns heavily rumoured to be Brock's opponent, he will surely be favourite to win the Chamber.

The women's match is not for a WrestleMania title shot, but rather the Raw Women's Championship itself. Champion Alexa Bliss will defend against Bayley, Sasha Banks, Mandy Rose, Sonya Deville, and Mickie James (with whom Bliss appeared to form an alliance on this week's Raw).

Elsewhere on the Elimination Chamber card, women's Royal Rumble winner Asuka will take on Nia Jax. Should Jax win, she will be added to the 'Mania championship bout between Asuka and the winner of the Elimination Chamber match.

There has been no further mention of Ronda Rousey's WrestleMania opponent, after the former UFC megastar appeared at the end of the Royal Rumble pay per view.
