Women’s Elimination Chamber: Becky Lynch def. Tiffany Stratton, Liv Morgan, Naomi, Bianca Belair and Raquel Rodriguez

Becky Lynch came out on top of a chaotic final sequence that could have seen any of three women punch their ticket to WrestleMania, but it’s the Irish star that will face Rhea Ripley at WrestleMania 40. 

Lynch and Naomi kicked things off in the Chamber largely by cancelling each other out with a series of pin attempts – none that got remotely close, mind – and strikes.

Once Tiffany Stratton got into the match, the action kicked into high gear. The SmackDown newcomer has been maximising her minutes ever since the Royal Rumble in January and tonight was no different

Liv Morgan was next into the fray and had the usual equivalent of a hot tag. Once Lynch applied her Dis-Arm-Her on Stratton threw he cage, Stratton managed to escape before encountering Naomi once more.

Morgan managed to drag Stratton back into the ring but after scaling the turnbuckle, Naomi met her with a div from the top of the pod resulting in a blockbuster neckbreaker.

Stratton took full advantage of the impact and scored a quick one, two, three to eliminate Naomi. Seconds later, Raquel Rodriguez entered the match.

Despite all three women ganging up on Rodriguez – and trying to pin her at the same time – they weren’t able to get rid of the powerhouse. Shortly after, they were joined by the final entrant and fellow powerhouse, Bianca Belair.

The Judgement Day (Damien Priest & Finn Balor) def. New Catch Republic (Tyler Bate and Pete Dunne) for WWE Undisputed Tag Team titles

Dominik Mysterio – who wasn’t even in the match – was the first to feel the New Catch Republic’s force as he was bulldozed out of the ring while trying to introduce his Judgement Day cohorts to a cacophony of boos.

The babyfaces got off to a hot start with Bate’s athleticism and Dunne’s joint-targeted attacks

Of course, it wasn’t long before the heels took control of the action and Dirty Dom even got in on the action from ringside.

 Tyler Bate’s helicopter spin on Damien Priest appeared to go on forever, but that downed Senor Money in the Bank long enough for Dunne to hit the bitter end on Balot, only for Mysterio to save the day, moving Balor’s leg under the rope.

The referee banished Dom to the back for that transgression and that got one of the biggest reactions of the night from the Optus Stadium. 

Priest survived some excellent double team from the Brits as Dunne and Bate really showed out, proving what many of us in the UK have known for years – they are two of the best performers in the world.

The climax of this match saw Priest chokeslam both of Dunne and Bate from the top rope, with Balor following that up with a Coupe de Grace for the win. A very entertaining match

Grayson Waller Effect

Wow, that’s a babyface pop Waller won’t be getting used to! The 33-year-old did a ‘shoey’ with UFC star Tai Tuivasa at ringside before leading the crowd in an “Aussie, Aussie, Aussie – oi, oi, oi!” sing-a-long. Austin Theory also joined him in the ring, perhaps pre-empting some shenanigans.

 The equally popular world heavyweight champion, Seth Rollins made his way out next. Then another rousing ovation was saved for the arrival of 2024 Royal Rumble winner, Cody Rhodes

Straight out of the gate, Rollins revealed he is just days away from being medically cleared to compete. 

 The topic quickly turns to The Rock. Cody questions his ‘people’s champion’ before issuing a challenge for a one-on-one matchup. Rollins endorses the challenge and says no fight with The Bloodline is ever one-on-one, so if and when The Rock accepts his challenge, he’ll be right there with him.

 Perhaps we are getting that rumoured tag team match after all…

Men’s Elimination Chamber: Drew McIntyre def. LA Knight, Randy Orton, Bobby Lashley, Logan Paul and Kevin Owens

Drew McIntyre wasted hardly any time mocking arch nemesis CM Punk attempting to hit the latter’s finishing move, Go To Sleep, early on.

Kevin Owens was like a rabid dog. Smashing his head against his own pod when confronted by Paul, who tried to stay locked inside when he was eventually released, confronted by Owens.

Bobby Lashley put both Owens and Paul through pods, before he was eliminated after a claymore from McIntyre.

AJ Styles interfered to cost LA Knight his spot in the match before Paul pulled out his famous brass knuckles. He didn’t get a chance to use them, however, eating an RKO to leave us with Orton and McIntyre.

The Scot, as expected, came out victorious after Paul re-interfered, knocking out Orton in anger. He’ll get his chance to win a title in front of a crowd at WrestleMania. 

Rhea Ripley def. Nia Jax for Women’s World title

In what was an extremely physical match, Rhea Ripley got the better of Nia Jax with the riptide to set up a match against Lynch at ‘Mania.

Jax put her opponent, whose family was ringside, through the announce table, but a superplex from the top rope was enough to put her away and ensure Ripley won in front of a 52,590-strong crowd. 

Jax has controlled long spells of the contest as she relished playing the villain in front of the partisan crowd.

However, Ripley managed to fight back time and time again. Shaking off Jax headbutts to work the challenger’s body and create some openings

While her back troubled her from trying to pick up Jax, Ripley did overcome the pain to secure victory in front of all her family, creating a moment that won’t be forgotten for many years to come
