Have WWE made an error with latest Elimination Chamber announcement?

Football News

When the surprise announcement of the return of WWE pay-per-view event Elimination Chamber was revealed, it came as welcome news to much of the WWE Universe.

Although f4wonline have reported that this addition to the WWE programming schedule was a last-minute decision and not one that will become a regular occurrence in the future, it will still make May one of the best months of the year in terms of what the company has to offer.

Title matches

Alongside the announcement of the event, it became known that two titles would be put on the line at Elimination Chamber through the Intercontinental Championship and the WWE Tag Team Titles.

Just how exactly the latter title defence will take place inside the chamber, though, appears to be something WWE have not entirely thought through.

It is not clear exactly what the set up will be for the WWE Tag Team Title match as, up until now, there has only ever been individuals waiting on their own in each of the four corner pods.

As the match traditionally starts with two opponents in the ring, it would be a big ask and probably have less of a positive effect if there were to be six tag teams involved in the match, so it is likely WWE will begin with one representative of two teams beginning in the ring with two other teams entering later on.

In addition, how exactly the match will be won is also something which has not yet been made clear. It will be interesting to note whether just one elimination means the entire team is knocked out or whether both team members need to eliminated individually.

Expert opinion

The in-the-know Wrestling Observer Newsletter has shed some light on the matter, giving the following information on what could take place during the event which is scheduled for May 31st in Corpus Christi, Texas:

'The details haven't been fully worked out, but the idea we were told is that both wrestlers on each team would be put in the pod together and released at the same time, and it would be fought tornado style, in the sense everyone would be in the ring at the same time.

"We were also told that while traditionally there are six competitors in a Chamber match, they are debating whether to go with six teams, or a number less than six."

Although this concept is a new one it does not mean it is going to be a negative one. WWE definitely has the opportunity to pull off a hugely exciting month through both its Payback and Elimination Chamber pay-per-view events in May and the title matches announced for the latter will definitely make for an even more exciting end to the month.
