The WrestleMania picture will be a lot clearer after Elimination Chamber on Sunday night.
The Elimination Chamber match has traditionally helped clarify plans for the top matches at WrestleMania, such as when Kofi Kingston’s performance in 2019 sparked the “Kofi Mania” movement. This year, Bobby Lashley could be the big winner. If he loses his U.S. title and Drew McIntyre retains inside the Chamber, might Lashley challenge McIntyre for the belt at WrestleMania?
One match that appeared set for Elimination Chamber but won’t be occurring is Lacey Evans vs. Asuka. Their storyline had apparently been building toward a match at the pay-per-view but Evans announced this week on Raw that she is pregnant.
