We still don’t know what WWE’s doing in between Survivor Series and Royal Rumble, but in two of the last three years Elimination Chamber has been the last stop before WrestleMania. With reports indicating the company could be looking to do fewer PLEs in the future, this show could have huge implications for this year’s ‘Mania.
It will be the first event the company’s held in Montreal since 2009’s Breaking Point. Could Elimination Chamber mean big things for two proud sons of Quebec, Sami Zayn & Kevin Owens?
