The Elimination Chamber match returned tonight as the annual eponymous pay-per-view rolled into Philadelphia.
The main event of the evening would see six women compete for the right to face Becky Lynch at WrestleMania 36, but earlier in the night we would get another match inside the structure.
There were no world titles being defended on the night, so it was up to SmackDown’s tag teams to take the spotlight in the first of two Chamber bouts.
The Miz and John Morrison’s first title defence saw them go up against The Usos, New Day, Heavy Machinery, Lucha House Party and the duo of Robert Roode and Dolph Ziggler, and like all matches of this type, there was a lot going on.
And just when you thought that every potential innovative moment in the history of Chamber matches had been tried, both Lince Dorado and Otis proved that there was still a lot more in the locker.
Firstly, with all the teams bar Ziggler and Roode battling in the middle of the ring, Lince Dorado climbed to the top of the structure unseen, and something incredible was about to happen.
We’ve seen similar spots before, but for the first time ever, a superstar hit a Shooting Star Press from the top of the cage as he landed on most of the men below him.
That was impressive enough, but it was then Otis of Heavy Machinery’s turn to do something never seen before.
Big Dozer was looking to power his love rival Ziggler through one of the Chamber pods, but after Dolph moved out of the way, leaving Otis to crash through the plexiglass door.
But not only did he do that, but he actually landed OUTSIDE the Chamber, and to our recollection it’s the first time that has ever happened.
Of course it raises the question as to why the back door of the pod was open, but we will let that slide this once.
The end game saw Miz and Morrison retain their belts, but it was Otis and Dorado who stole the show with their parts in the match-stealing spots.
