Main Event: Elimination Chamber match for the WWE World Championship: John Cena (c) vs. AJ Styles vs. Dean Ambrose vs. Bray Wyatt vs. The Miz vs. Baron Corbin
Elimination Chamber match for the WWE World Championship: John Cena (c) vs. AJ Styles vs. Dean Ambrose vs. Bray Wyatt vs. The Miz vs. Baron Corbin
Baron Corbin is eliminated first after Ambrose rolls him up for the 1, 2, 3. But Corbin retaliates and assaults Ambrose long after he’s eliminated. He throws Dean throw the bullet-proof glass pod, and then drills him to the mat with an End of Days. The Miz quickly capitalizes and pins the fallen Lunatic Fringe.
Cena eliminates Miz, who jumps off the top ropes right into an Attitude Adjustment. Cena and Styles battle it out in the ring, trading signature moves and near falls. John tries to put away Wyatt, but Bray reverses the Attitude Adjustment and dims Cena’s lights with the Sister Abigail. Right after Bray eliminated Cena, I knew in my mind that Bray would win the WWE World Championship. I also knew the best way to when the match was Wyatt countering the Phenomenal Forearm with that same Sister Abigail.
Bray Wyatt is the **NEW** WWE World Champion

Rhyno gored Fandango to take Breezango out of the equation. Heather Slater knocked off Aiden English to put away The Vaudevillians. The Usos put away Heather Slater & Rhyno. But The Usos weren’t able to defeat the champions American Alpha. The former 2-time Tag Team champions attacked American Alpha after they were eliminated. And yet, somehow, American Alpha were able to put away The Ascension to secure the victory.
