WWE Championship Elimination Chamber Match
Well WWE continues to surprise me by doing some extremely weird choices. They have a perfectly fine method in the Elimination Chamber to determine the #1 contender for the world championship that the Royal Rumble winner doesn't challenge for, but instead, we're getting the WWE Championship defended in it. Why?
If they wanted a SmackDown guy to win the Royal Rumble, this could have been a Raw event. If they wanted a Raw guy to win the Royal Rumble, this could have been SmackDown's method of finding a top contender while the WWE Championship could have been defended in a regular match.
Instead, this now means I expect Fastlane to include a #1 contender's match while a SmackDown guy wins the Royal Rumble, which in turn means my new pick for the Royal Rumble is The Undertaker so he doesn't have to wrestle between the Royal Rumble and WrestleMania.
AJ Styles and John Cena will definitely be involved and the other possible contestants in this match include Dean Ambrose, The Miz, Randy Orton, Bray Wyatt, Dolph Ziggler and Baron Corbin...possibly Samoa Joe as well.
PREDICTION: This comes down to Styles or Cena, depending on who they want to face The Undertaker, so I'm assuming Styles is the winner here.
