WWE ELIMINATION CHAMBER LIVE BLOG & MATCH COVERAGE
No lyrics, as my girl Claire Elizabeth is out living her life today. You’re stuck with my subpar live blogging. Claire doesn’t usually do lyrics for these Saudi shows however, instead preferring to remind you that she wouldn’t be able to live her life in the country hosting today’s WWE premium live event. So I’ll do the same — it sucks that there are a lot of people (almost all of whom don’t identify as cishet males) in the KSA who have to fear for their lives just for existing.
No smooth segue between that harsh reality and the exhibitions of competitive violence we all love, but here we go...
We learn early on in the Kickoff that Miz & Rey Mysterio’s match will happen on the pre-show. Beyond that, it’s Jackie Redmond, Matt Camp & Peter Rosenberg from a studio in the United States, and Kevin Patrick backstage in Jeddah, taking us through today’s card and associated hype videos.
Rey Mysterio vs. The Miz
Rey soaks in the cheers from the adoring crowd at the start, and Miz takes advantage. He puts Mysterio down with a shot to the back of the head and talks trash toward Dominik, who’s ringside for his dad. The Saudi crowd HATES the A-Lister. He gets distracted by that and Dom, which allows the lucha legend to mount a comeback, but Rey gets caught when he tries to go up talk and the beatdown is back on.
Miz slows things down and works a chinlock while Michael Cole, Corey Graves & Byron Saxton wonder why Maryse isn’t here (hmmm). Rey gets two on a roll-up when Miz takes a swing at Dom and gets punched for his trouble. It Kicks, but a delay in the process allows Mysterio to duck one. He ranas Miz into the turnbuckle, seated senton off the top followed by a springboard crossbody gets two.
Back-and-forth as the Jeddah Super Dome chants “This is Awesome”. DDT by Miz gets a nearfall, but he fights out of a Skull Crushing Finale. Mysterio sends him into the ropes, but Miz heads outside before the signature follow-up. He goes for a chair, but gets caught by another crossbody before he can use it. Dom goes to take the chair, and Miz makes sure the referee sees him with it. He’s sent to the back. A gloating Miz goes for the SCF, but Rey rolls him up!

Cheap shot attack from Miz afterwards, but Dom runs in for the save. Double 6-1-9 from the Mysterios, followed by a Frog Splash from each man.
After the intro video, it’s back to that same announce trio (and our Arabic crew of Jude Aldajani and Faisal Almughaisib) for our big opening match, the Universal title clash...
Roman Reigns vs. Goldberg
After his entrance, the champion gets a microphone from his counselor to tell the Kingdom to acknowledge him. Mike Rome gives us the big fight intro as the Jeddah crowd continues to eat right out of WWE’s hand.
Ref has to tell the combatants to separate several times, then we start with... a collar and elbow tie-up. Test of strength ends in a stalemate... Reigns off the ropes right into a SPEAR! Sets up for the jackhammer, but Roman slips free. Uranage! Superman Punch! He sets up for a Spear of his own and charges right into you guessed it! SPEAR from Goldberg! The jackhammer countered into a guillotine! Goldberg bulls his way into the corner, but the champ won’t let go.
Reigns wraps the legs and survives another charge into the corner. They fall to the mat, and Goldberg fades. The referee calls for the bell.

As the champion leaves with Paul Heyman & The Usos, the announcers mention that WrestleMania 38 will be title vs. title if Brock Lesnar wins our next match.
Or not... after a hype video for the men’s Chamber, Rome announces we’re getting the women’s one...
Bianca Belair vs. Rhea Ripley vs. Alexa Bliss vs. Doudrop vs. Liv Morgan vs. Nikki A.S.H. in a WWE Raw Women’s Championship #1 Contender’s Elimination Chamber Match
We know Bianca enters last, since she won that right in the gauntlet match on Raw last week). Tensions flare between Morgan & Doudrop and A.S.H. & Ripley as everyone enters and makes their way to their pods. Alexa enters last, even though Liv and Nikki start us off.
The Almost Super Hero dominates their exchange, getting a nearfall after sending Liv into the ring post. She can’t put her away before the buzzer goes off, and it’s Doudrop. Nikki tries to get her to finish Liv, but she headbutts her instead. The big Scot dominates everyone, but crashes and burns into the ringpost when A.S.H. evades a charge just as the buzzer goes off. It’s Ripley!
She clobbers down Doudrop in callback to their hoss fight on Monday, then goes after her former tag partner. Nikki climbs the chain link to escape, but Rhea chases and throws her down. That spells doom for A.S.H. in the Chamber.
Rhea Ripley eliminates Nikki A.S.H. via pinfall
Alexa makes her return shortly after that, and runs wild for a moment. Liv fights back and goes up top for something, but Doudrop shoves her off. Her knee gets caught on the ropes and she sells an injury, but makes it back up and...
Liv Morgan eliminates Doudrop via pinfall with a sunset flip
The EST enters at last, and doesn’t waste any time making her presence known. She presses Morgan above her head, and holds her there with one arm! for a while before dropping her on the outside. Staredown between Bianca and Rhea, and they decide to team-up for a bit. Stereo dropkicks, and then a show of delayed vertical suplexes. Belair holds her longer, which upsets Ripley, so they do battle for a while. They’re both down, which creates an opening for Bliss to attack Morgan, and...
Alexa Bliss eliminates Liv Morgan via pinfall with Twisted Bliss
Ripley goes for Riptide on Bliss right after that, but Alexa slips free. Rhea turns around and...
Bianca Belair eliminates Rhea Ripley via pinfall with K.O.D.
The EST lifts Bliss and springboards her off the ropes into the chain link several times, then drops her in the ring. Up to, but Alexa evades! She tries again from the mat, but Bliss gets the knees up! Alexa presses the advantage, but when she’s in a position to win with a Mandible Claw/Sister Abigail, she hesitates and just tells Bianca to give up. That’s the opening Belair needs, and...
Bianca Belair eliminates Alexa Bliss via pinfall with K.O.D. to become the #1 contender for the Raw Women’s championship
The EST is again going to WrestleMania!
Ronda Rousey & Naomi vs. Charlotte Flair & Sonya Deville
Rousey enters last, and she’s rocking her judo gi instead of a variation on the body suit all the other women are wearing today. The ref ties her right arm behind her back with a rope around the waist. She starts with Sonya, who “calls time” to reveal that she doesn’t need the sling she’s wearing — she has two good arms! It helps her for a second, but that’s it as Ronda takes her down with a kick. She calls for WrestleMania opponent, and Charlotte comes in... then ducks back out to tag Deville back in.
That leads Ronda to tag in her partner, and Naomi takes out months of frustration on the authority figure who’s been tormenting her. Rousey back in, and she goes for a one-arm armbar, and Flair attacks to break it up. Sonya gets in a few licks, then tags in Charlotte. She delivers some blows to the back of the head of her handicapped opponent. The heels work Rousey over in the corner. She fights free with one-arm, but the closest she comes to a tag, Flair grabs her by the rope to drag her back to the middle of the ring.
Kicks do the head do finally get Ronda free, and Naomi comes in with the hot tag. Head scissors, springboard kick, then a corkscrew plancha on the outside! Inside with a lateral press that gets two. Ronda’s turn to clean house, and when she sets Sonya up for the armbar, she taunts Charlotte to stop it. The Queen makes like she might enter the ring, then decides against it and gestures for Rousey to do as she will.

Madcap is out with Happy Corbin. McIntyre brings Angela.
Drew McIntyre vs. Madcap Moss
The heels take advantage of the no disqualification nature of the Falls Count Anywhere stipulation to jump McIntyre at the bell. The big Scot gets back on the advantage quick, and after Drew no-sells an attack from behind on the ramp, Corbin runs away. Moss charges, but runs into a boot. McIntyre looks to powerbomb Madcap off the stage and Happy returns. Tandem suplex on the ramp.
Despite the continued two-on-one assault, Moss can’t keep McIntyre down for three. By the time we get back to the ring, Drew’s recovered. The beatdown leads up to an Alabama Slam that sees Madcap land right on his head. Thankfully he’s okay, and gets back up to take a throw on the outside and gets tossed onto & over the announce desk! The announce trio sell how amazing it is Moss is still going as McIntyre sets up to blast him through the barricade, but Corbin re-enters the fray with a chair shot to the back. They team-up to send Drew through the wall, but still no three count!
Back inside, Moss climbs, but gets caught. Superplex! One-two-NO! Madcap gets an arm up! They trade strikes in the middle of the ring, backslide gets a nearfall for Moss. McIntyre back with a Future Shock DDT, but he decides to deal with Corbin before covering. He goes for the sword and takes a swing! Happy evades and bails, apoplectic. He finishes it sword it hand.

The cover is made with a foot on Moss’ chest while pointing Angela at Corbin on the ramp.
After a look back to the pre-show match, Patrick catches up with Miz backstage. He accuses the Mysterios of cheating, and says he’s going to get a partner to settle the score. Someone as handsome and athletic as him, a global superstar. We have our first Cody Rhodes tease, folks!
Lita vs. Becky Lynch
The champ goes for the Dis-Arm-Her early, but gets dropped face first to the mat with a toe hold. Lynch regroups and looks for an advantage, but the Hall of Famer doesn’t fall for it. Becks waits for her spot and gets it when Lynch picks away at Lita with a focus on her neck. She hits two Bexsloder suplexes, but going for a third is a mistake as Lita counters. The rally leads to a crossbody off the middle rope that gets two. Twist of Fate set-up is countered into a Dis-Arm-Her attempt. That gets turned into a roll-up for Lita. Lynch goes for one of her own, but the ref notices it when she grabs the rope.
Step-up kick from the champ is caught by Lita, who powerbombs her down hard. She heads up for a moonsault, but Becky bails. Offense out there by the challenger, but she gets Becky inside before a countout. Back inside, back and forth, Manhandle Slam connects but Lita gets her foot on the ropes. A frustrated Becky goes for a moonsault of her own, but Lita evades. She hits the Twist of Fate and a Lita-sault, but Lynch kicks out! The champ hits her finisher out of nowhere and that’s it.
Becky Lynch def. Lita via pinfall with a Manhandle Slam to retain the Raw Women’s championship
Lita gets a curtain call, before we’re reminded that Undertaker is going into the Hall of Fame this year.
The Usos vs. Viking Raiders
Erik& Ivar are making their way down the ramp when the champs attack! The ass-whooping ends with one Raider being slammed on another, and this match ain’t happening. Jimmy & Jey gloat while the Vikings fume. THIS ISN’T OVER!
Brock Lesnar vs. Bobby Lashley vs. Seth Rollins vs. AJ Styles vs. Riddle vs. Austin Theory in a WWE Championship Elimination Chamber Match
Lesnar enters last, but as was the case in the women’s match, that doesn’t mean he starts. The honors go to Rollins and Theory. Seth is cocky, and backs it up for a second, but misses a splash and gets thrown by the youngster. Fisherman’s suplex gets two for Mr. McMahon’s intern. Big Freakin’ comeback with several Freakin’ kicks, then Seth bounces Theory off the chains. Powerbomb into the pod, and the plexiglass breaks! Bobby Lashley and Austin Theory are down!
The buzzer goes off and Riddle is in with a kick to Rollins, then a series of forearms, a throw, and a senton. He then heads over to senton Theory on the outside, and we see trainers checking on Lashley. Riddle up top, but Seth crotches him. Superplex, and officials (including Jason Jordan) help the champ out of the structure, so as of this moment, he’s out.
AJ Styles is in next, and he immediately mixes it up with Riddle. Rollins attacks, but ends up getting stretched over AJ’s shoulders. He throws Theory into the chains again, then heads back inflict more punishment on Rollins and Riddle. He sets Bro up on top, and he and Seth fight for the right to finish a move. They both set-up for something, and Theory runs in slam them both down, then Riddle recovers for a floating Bro that gets two. He spikes Rollins and Styles in honor of his pal Randy, then sets up for an RKO when he realizes the timer is up... but no one enters because Lashley’s pod was supposed to open. But Brock decides he doesn’t want to wait and breaks out of his pod!
F5 to Seth!

And one for Riddle!

We’re told Lashley is “in concussion protocol and can’t return.” It’s AJ’s turn!

We’re down to just young mister Theory, and he’s scared $#!+less. He scrambles backwards as Lesanr stalks him. Austin tries to hide in a pod and Brock kicks down the plexiglass. Suplex on the outside, but Theory hits a low blow! He hits a dropkick and DDT, but it’s just angered the Beast. Austin tries to escape, but Lesnar climbs the cage in like two moves to catch him. They set up on top of the pod. F5 FROM THERE!

Michael Cole tells us about some trash talk from Roman Reigns while the new champ poses with fans along the ramp. The WrestleMania match graphic says Lesnar vs. Reigns is “champion vs. champion”, but we don’t get any clarity on if the WWE title will be on the line.
That’s the blissfully short show, folks!
