Rollins & Balor both added to men's Elimination Chamber match


There will be an additional participant in the upcoming men's Elimination Chamber match.

An advertised fatal four-way qualifying match ended up turning into a five-way on Raw tonight as Seth Rollins was added. It also included Finn Balor, Apollo Crews, Bray Wyatt, and Matt Hardy, and Rollins and Balor pinned Wyatt at the same time after giving him a powerbomb during a Tower of Doom spot.

The show went off the air with an angle where Rollins and Balor argued over who won, but WWE quickly followed up on the finish in a Facebook Live video. After they continued to argue and lobby for the final spot, Kurt Angle said both Rollins and Balor deserve to be in the Elimination Chamber and announced that there will be seven men in the match.

WWE didn't reveal what the logistics for the Elimination Chamber will be now that there's a seventh person. It could either start with three people or an additional pod could be added.

Rollins, Balor, John Cena, Elias, Braun Strowman, Roman Reigns, and The Miz will be the seven wrestlers in the Elimination Chamber. The winner will challenge for Brock Lesnar's Universal Championship at WrestleMania.

As a result of matches that took place over the last two weeks, The Miz will be the first person to enter the Elimination Chamber and Elias will be the final participant let into the match.

The T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas is set to host the Elimination Chamber pay-per-view on February 25th.
