Sheamus and Lacey Evans declared for Elimination Chamber matches that don’t exist

WWE’s Elimination Chamber 2020 event is coming up this Sunday, Mar. 8, from the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Two chamber matches have already been booked for the event. One match will determine the top contender for Becky Lynch’s Raw women’s championship at WrestleMania 36, and the other will feature a defense of the SmackDown tag titles. There has never been an event with more than two different chamber matches in one night.

Could that change this year?

Sheamus is not a participant in either of the two announced chamber matches. Yet he had a pre-taped promo on the Feb. 21 episode of SmackDown where he declared for an Elimination Chamber match, which he referred to as a “rat trap.”

Lacey Evans is also not a participant in either of the two announced chamber matches. Yet she had a sit-down interview with Renee Young on that same episode of SmackDown, where she talked about taking out five women at Elimination Chamber in order to earn a championship match at WrestleMania.

Something doesn’t add up here. Is WWE going to announce new Elimination Chamber matches on this week’s (Mar. 6) go-home episode of SmackDown? Or is this a case of Vince McMahon changing plans multiple times during the most important part of the wrestling calendar?
