The WWE have been the innovators of several groundbreaking concepts in the world of professional wrestling during their long and storied history.

From simple ideas like the Royal Rumble to the five-on-five Survivor Series matchups, the WWE has a habit of incorporating tradition into their bouts.

However, the company and Vince McMahon's creative mind has a habit of making some brutal matchups, as well.

As the pioneers of such matches like the Hell in a Cell and Tables, Ladders and Chairs, they have used the popularity and savage nature of those matches to turn them into their very own pay-per-views.

Another one on that list is the Elimination Chamber.

Although Eric Bishoff is commonly regarded as the brainchild behind the brutal match, Triple H is actually the man that devised it.

The first ever Elimination chamber took place at Survivor Series back in 2002 and it featured Triple H, Shawn Michaels, Chris Jericho, Booker T, Rob Van Dam and Kane, with HBK walking out as the world champion for the fourth and final time.

The WWE made the Elimination Chamber its own PPV in 2010 and continued to use it between the Royal Rumble and WrestleMania until 2014.

In 2015, the last time the event took place, the show emanated from Corpus Christi, Texas in May, but now, it looks like Phoenix, Arizona and the Talking Stick Resort Arena is the next destination after a revealing tweet.

Of course, one of the main problems the WWE have encountered in recent years is finding an arena that will house a structure that is 16 ft (4.9 m) high, 36 ft (11 m) in diameter, weighs over 10 short tons (9,100 kg), and comprises 2 mi (3.2 km) and 6 short tons (5,400 kg) of chain.

Are you happy that the Elimination Chamber is returning? Let us know in your comments below.
