Three WWE Elimination Chamber qualifying matches set for tonight


Brock Lesnar's challenger for WrestleMania will be decided at the Elimination Chamber next month, and the first three qualifying matches for the pay-per-view are set for tonight.

John Cena vs. Finn Balor, Braun Strowman vs. Kane in a last man standing match, and Matt Hardy vs. Elias are scheduled for tonight's episode of Raw, with the winners advancing to the PPV. Cena vs. Balor will be the first time the two have ever faced off in a singles match, though Cena did eliminate Balor in last night's Royal Rumble.

While WWE has yet to announce the three remaining qualifying matches, Roman Reigns has been expected to be Lesnar's WrestleMania challenger for nearly a year. Dave Meltzer reported last March that Lesnar vs. Reigns was the plan for WrestleMania 34.

After losing the Intercontinental Championship to The Miz on Raw 25, Reigns will get his rematch for the title tonight.

The T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada will host Elimination Chamber on February 25th. The show is the final Raw-exclusive PPV before WrestleMania, and the venue has indicated in their advertising that there will be two Elimination Chamber matches.
