2023 WWE Elimination Chamber predictions, card, matches, PPV preview, start time, location, date

WWE’s final stop on its way to WrestleMania will be on Saturday when the Elimination Chamber arrives in Montreal. The map is loaded with big matches, all of which have major implications for April’s two-day WrestleMania event.

The Bloodline’s long history will reach one of its most dramatic highs in the main event when Roman Reigns puts his WWE Undisputed Universal Title on the line against former Bloodline member Sami Zayn. Zane finally broke loose and turned on Reigns at the Royal Rumble when Reigns demanded that Zane hit a defenseless Kevin Owens with a chair.

Two matches will also take place in the legendary Elimination Chamber. Six women will fight for Bianca Belair’s chance and the Raw Women’s Championship on the line. Among the men, Austin Teori will defend his US title against five other men in the room.

Also on the map is a duel between Brock Lesnar and Bobby Lashley. The pair faced each other twice in singles matches, splitting the bouts, although Lashley won several brawls and also eliminated Lesnar from the January Royal Rumble match.

Let’s take a closer look at who our CBS Sports experts predict will come out on top in the WWE Elimination Chamber, which begins Saturday at 8:00 pm ET at the Bell Center in Montreal and streams live on Peacock.

WWE Selection Chamber Predictions for 2023

WWE Undisputed Universal Championship – Roman Reigns (c) vs. Sami Zayn

At any other point in the year, it seems like there will be a little more unpredictability in how this match could end. Zayn is as hot a babyface as the WWE has been in a long time thanks to Bloodline’s masterfully crafted storyline. The crowd in Montreal will be incredibly hot for Zayn, and the unfortunate championship win will be a historic moment in WWE history. The reality, however, is that Reigns’ long title run won’t end this close to WrestleMania. The real question is whether the events will affect the WrestleMania main event. Will something happen to include Zane in this matchup, turning the matchup between Reigns and Royal Rumble winner Cody Rhodes into a triple threat? This is yet to be seen. Reigns vs. Zayn should have a great vibe and tell a good story, but it would be a legitimate shock if Zayn left Montreal with titles. Pick: Roman Reigns retains titles — Brent Brookhouse (also Shaquille Mahjuri)

WrestleMania Raw Women’s Championship Elimination Match – Asuka vs. Liv Morgan vs. Nikki Cross vs. Raquel Rodriguez vs. Natalya vs. Carmella

The return of the “Evil Asuka” was a devilish delight. Her makeover at the Royal Rumble resonated with fans and she has received many bookings since, scoring good wins and showing a return to her former dominance. Asuka is by far the most trustworthy opponent in this chamber match and her new gimmick must be defended. All action is cooling down, so it’s imperative that WWE continue to present this deranged version of Asuka as a threat. With WrestleMania just around the corner, Asuka is also the safest bet to smoothly prepare for a title match on the biggest show of the year. Choice: Asuka wins — Makhjuri (also Brookhouse)

US Championship Elimination Chamber Match – Austin Theory (c) vs. Seth Rollins vs. Montez Ford vs. Damian Priest vs. Johnny Gargano vs. Bronson Reed

There aren’t many credible winners in a match. Johnny Gargano has pretty much been a comedian since returning, Rollins has recently lost the title and appears to be linked to a possible WrestleMania entry against Logan Paul, Priest is a minor stable member, Reed has no momentum – and fans have shown no interest. in it on Raw is to enter WrestleMania as the defending champion and Ford is half of the struggling tag team. If someone had overthrown Theory from the throne, then most likely it would have been Ford. There’s certainly a desire to see what an athletic, fan-friendly superstar can do as a solo breakthrough star. Ultimately, the WWE seems to be somewhat committed to Theory’s dominance, with a reliable contender on the horizon. In August, Teori told CBS Sports that “he’s pretty confident” he’ll face John Cena at WrestleMania. There aren’t many participants in Cena’s lottery other than Theory and Logan Paul. If we get Theory against Cena, then the champion will definitely leave the Elimination Chamber with his title in hand. Pick: Austin Teori retains title — Makhjuri (also Brookhouse)

Edge and Beth Phoenix vs Finn Balor and Rhea Ripley

The deciding factor in this match is that Ripley has won the Royal Rumble and is heading to WrestleMania to challenge Charlotte Flair for the SmackDown Women’s Championship. Ripley hasn’t fought since winning the Rumble, and if she immediately lost momentum by losing a match to Edge and Phoenix, a pair of established legends who are currently bulletproof, it would be pointless. Sometimes it’s so easy to determine how a match will turn out. Choice: Balor and Ripley win — Brookhouse (also Mahjuri)

Brock Lesnar vs. Bobby Lashley

To be honest, the most realistic option here might be that the pair would not compete due to a wild fight, allowing the rubber match to be rescheduled for WrestleMania. There is most likely no bigger Mania match for any of the males available, so ending the feud on the big stage might be the best option. If I had to pick any of them to get the win, I would have to side with Lesnar. Lashley defeated Lesnar at almost every turn, including right after Lesnar defeated him at the Crown Jewel. At some point, a star like Lesnar has “the right moment.” Choice: No Contest or Brock Lesnar Wins — Brookhouse

The outcome of this match depends on WWE plans for WrestleMania. Frankly, the once fantastic feud has run its course, but here we are. The hosts are split 1-1 in their series and there will be no competition in the game if the creative decides to end the trilogy at WrestleMania. If anyone wins in the elimination chamber, I’m on Lashley’s side. Hurt Business never got what it deserved and there may be interest in reforming the faction. Shelton Benjamin and Cedric Alexander have been chatting backstage on Raw, the MVP’s Omos collaboration has fallen through, and Lashley needs help. Hurt Business’ interference in the match gives Lashley an edge, gives the group a big re-introduction, and gives WWE wiggle room to stretch the feud into WrestleMania. Choice: Bobby Lashley win — Makhjuri
