There were some interesting twists and turns this past week when it came to the build for this year’s WrestleMania.

The Elimination Chamber show went as expected, with Roman Reigns winning the men’s chamber match, Braun Strowman being protected in the match as much as possible, and Alexa Bliss winning the women’s chamber match to retain her Raw championship.

The show itself was average. There was nothing overtly bad, but on paper going in, really only the men’s chamber match looked like it woUld be a strong match. It was good, but not as good as would be expected given the talent. The women’s match told a story, but dragged a lot and the undercard largely felt like filler.

The only real known change in the WrestleMania card is the original Miz vs. Strowman IC title match is out. Strowman’s role isn’t determined because right now he is the fallback position in case something happens with either Reigns or Brock Lesnar.
