This week’s episode of Monday Night Raw opened with a pleasant surprise — Shane McMahon is back!
We weren’t told why, or what he’ll be doing, or if he’s got a reason for coming back around at all, but he did tell Adam Pearce he’s doing an amazing job while helping him announce the main event of the upcoming Elimination Chamber pay-per-view (PPV) scheduled for Sun., Feb. 21, 2021, at the ThunderDome at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg, Florida.

It will, of course, be an Elimination Chamber match. It won’t be for a shot at the WWE championship, however. No, it will be for the WWE championship.
Indeed, Drew McIntyre will put his title on the line against the following wrestlers, who were simply announced for the match and did nothing to earn their way into it:
- Randy Orton
- Jeff Hardy
- AJ Styles
- The Miz
Pearce called them all “former champions,” so I suppose that’s the only qualifier they feel they need.
Either way, there’s your main event for the next big WWE event.
