Elimination Chamber 2021 results: Drew McIntyre retains WWE championship


Unlike Roman Reigns, who was able to pick at the bones of what was left of his challenger for the Universal championship after said challenger, Daniel Bryan, had to win an Elimination Chamber match, Drew McIntyre had to defend his title, the WWE championship, in an Elimination Chamber match of his own. That was the main event of tonight’s (Sun., Feb. 21, 2021) WWE Elimination Chamber pay-per-view (PPV) at the ThunderDome at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg, Florida.

The order of entry:

  1. Randy Orton
  2. Jeff Hardy
  3. Drew McIntyre
  4. Kofi Kingston
  5. AJ Styles
  6. Sheamus

The order of elimination:

  1. Randy Orton
  2. Kofi Kingston
  3. Hardy
  4. Sheamus
  5. AJ Styles

The first elimination came as a surprise. Kingston got in and right away went after Orton. It looked like Orton had taken control when Kofi put his leg around and tripped Randy into a roll up that ended up being enough to get a three count.

Next out was Kingston, whose hopes of a KofiMania 2 ended at the boot of a Sheamus Brogue Kick.

Hardy put in work with multiple dives from all around the cage, including off one of the pods, but after a Swanton to Styles, McIntyre rocked him with a Claymore to put him away.

If you thought Sheamus, who has been feuding with the champion, would be last up with McIntyre, you’d be wrong. After he hit a Brogue Kick on the champ, Styles swooped in with a Phenomenal Forearm that got a clean pinfall on Sheamus.

Styles followed that up by trying to come off the top rope with another Forearm and McIntyre hit him with a Claymore in midair.

That was it.

Until the celebration, when Bobby Lashley, who just lost the U.S. title earlier in the night without being pinned, launched a surprise attack.

And then this happened.
