At least one of the remaining Elimination Chamber qualifying matches is set to take place on Monday night.

WWE announced that Roman Reigns will face Bray Wyatt on Raw, with the winner advancing to the Elimination Chamber match later this month. John Cena, Braun Strowman, and Elias qualified for the match this past Monday.

A video from Wyatt distracted Matt Hardy in his qualifying match against Elias and led to Elias hitting the Drift Away for the win. Wyatt appeared on the screen after and laughed at Hardy. On the same show, Reigns lost his rematch for the Intercontinental Championship when The Miz rolled him up following interference from Curtis Axel and Bo Dallas.

The Elimination Chamber match will decide who challenges for Brock Lesnar's Universal Championship at WrestleMania. Reigns has long been expected to be Lesnar's opponent.

Dave Meltzer reported that Reigns, Seth Rollins, and one more participant would round out the field for the Elimination Chamber match. There will also be a women's Chamber match at the pay-per-view as Alexa Bliss defends her Raw Women's Championship against five challengers.

The T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas will host this year's Elimination Chamber PPV on February 25th.
