First-ever women's Elimination Chamber match official for next month


Following last night's women's Royal Rumble, the WWE women's division is already set for another first-ever match.

Stephanie McMahon opened Raw tonight and confirmed that Alexa Bliss would be defending her Women's Championship in an Elimination Chamber match on February 25th in Las Vegas. None of the other participants have been revealed yet, but there will be five challengers for Bliss' title.

Asuka, the winner of the women's Royal Rumble, was also in the ring when Stephanie made the announcement. The storyline is that Asuka is able to choose whether she'll face the Raw or SmackDown Women's Champion at WrestleMania, and Stephanie told her that Bliss may not be champion then due to having to defend her title in the Elimination Chamber.

The T-Mobile Arena, which will be hosting the Elimination Chamber pay-per-view, had been indicating that there would be two Chamber matches in their advertising for the event. And the Sporting News reported earlier today that the women's Elimination Chamber would be happening.

Brock Lesnar's challenger for WrestleMania will be decided in the men's Elimination Chamber match, with six qualifying matches set to take place in advance of the PPV.
