Two tag team matches confirmed for WWE Elimination Chamber


WWE has confirmed the Raw Tag Team Championship match and announced the pre-show bout for Sunday's Elimination Chamber pay-per-view.

As expected, Cesaro & Sheamus will defend their titles against Titus O'Neil & Apollo. The Titus Worldwide team defeated the champions in a non-title match on Raw this past Monday and then challenged them in a post-show video, but WWE didn't officially announce the match until today.

O'Neil & Apollo have beaten Cesaro & Sheamus in three non-title matches this year, but Cesaro & Sheamus retained against them on the January 29th episode of Raw.

The pre-show will also feature Raw's tag team division, with Luke Gallows & Karl Anderson set to face Curtis Axel & Bo Dallas. Gallows & Anderson had been feuding with The Revival in recent weeks.

With Axel & Dallas helping him out, The Miz eliminated Finn Balor in Monday's gauntlet match.

The card for Sunday now has six confirmed matches. Here's the lineup for the show:

  • Braun Strowman vs. John Cena vs. Elias vs. Roman Reigns vs. The Miz vs. Seth Rollins vs. Finn Balor in an Elimination Chamber match (winner challenges for Brock Lesnar's Universal Championship at WrestleMania)
  • Ronda Rousey signing her Raw contract
  • Raw Women's Champion Alexa Bliss defending against Sasha Banks, Bayley, Mickie James, Mandy Rose, and Sonya Deville in an Elimination Chamber match
  • Asuka vs. Nia Jax (Jax gets added to the Raw Women's title match at WrestleMania if she wins)
  • Matt Hardy vs. Bray Wyatt
  • Raw Tag Team Champions Cesaro & Sheamus defending against Titus O'Neil & Apollo
  • Luke Gallows & Karl Anderson vs. Curtis Axel & Bo Dallas (pre-show)
