WWE announces Gauntlet match for Monday Night Raw next week

Next week’s episode of Monday Night Raw is the go home show to the Elimination Chamber pay-per-view (PPV) on Feb. 25, 2018, in Paradise, Nevada. It’s no surprise, then, that WWE has announced a bout involving all seven participants in the men’s Elimination Chamber match.


For the first time ever, seven Superstars will compete inside the Elimination Chamber next Sunday, with the winner going on to challenge Brock Lesnar for the Universal Championship at WrestleMania. However, this Monday night on Raw, those same Superstars will square off in a huge Gauntlet Match ahead of their history making Chamber clash, can confirm.

The Gauntlet match, for those who may not know, is where two wrestlers start and a pinfall or submission leads to another wrestler coming out until all involved have participated. Whoever is standing last is the winner.

The idea here, then, is to show who can withstand such a thing just six days away from competing in a similar, although more brutal, match type.
