Sheamus won a gauntlet match on tonight’s episode of Raw, giving him the opportunity to enter the Elimination Chamber match last on Sunday.
The final two in the gauntlet match were Drew McIntyre and Sheamus, who entered the gauntlet last. He attacked McIntyre from behind, putting McIntyre at a disadvantage. After the referee asked McIntyre if he wanted to continue, the match started. Despite the attack, it was a competitive match, with Sheamus winning with the brogue kick after McIntyre missed the claymore kick.
AJ Styles and Kofi Kingston started the match off. Kingston qualified to enter the Elimination Chamber match earlier on Raw by pinning The Miz, who took himself out of the Chamber match. Styles pinned Kingston, which led to Drew McIntyre pinning Styles. From there, McIntyre pinned Jeff Hardy. Randy Orton entered next, but was counted out quickly after Alexa Bliss appeared on the video screen, taunting Orton.
The Elimination Chamber pay-per-view takes place this Sunday on the WWE Network.
