Cruiserweight title match to air on WWE Elimination Chamber pre-show


The Cruiserweight Championship will be on the line on Sunday's Elimination Chamber pre-show.

WWE confirmed today that Buddy Murphy's Cruiserweight title defense against Akira Tozawa will air on the Elimination Chamber pre-show. Murphy vs. Tozawa was announced earlier this month after Tozawa defeated Cedric Alexander, Humberto Carrillo, and Lio Rush in a number one contender's fatal four-way elimination match on 205 Live.

Murphy also defended his title on the Royal Rumble and TLC pre-shows. He defeated Mustafa Ali on the Survivor Series main card prior to that.

Here's the card for Elimination Chamber:

  • WWE Champion Daniel Bryan defending against AJ Styles, Jeff Hardy, Kofi Kingston, Samoa Joe, and Randy Orton in an Elimination Chamber match
  • Sasha Banks & Bayley vs. Mandy Rose & Sonya Deville vs. Nia Jax & Tamina vs. Peyton Royce & Billie Kay vs. Liv Morgan & Sarah Logan vs. Naomi & Carmella in an Elimination Chamber match for the WWE Women's Tag Team titles
  • Raw Women's Champion Ronda Rousey defending against Ruby Riott
  • Intercontinental Champion Bobby Lashley & Lio Rush defending against Finn Balor in a handicap match (Balor can win the title by pinning either Lashley or Rush)
  • SmackDown Tag Team Champions Shane McMahon & The Miz defending against The Usos
  • Braun Strowman vs. Baron Corbin in a no DQ match
  • WWE Cruiserweight Champion Buddy Murphy defending against Akira Tozawa (pre-show)
