With WrestleMania 37 drawing near, WWE Elimination Chamber represented one of the final big speed bumps for the company’s top champions on the road to the biggest show of the year. Roman Reigns and Drew McIntyre both left the event on down notes, but McIntyre had the rougher night of the two despite both ultimately leaving their booked title matches looking good.
Reigns orchestrated a situation where six men would have to battle in the Chamber to earn a shot at his title on the same night. McIntyre, on the other hand, had to actually compete in the Chamber and survive against five other competitors.
By the time the night was over, two major decisions were made by WWE superstars who were not actually scheduled to compete at Elimination Chamber. What went down on Sunday night? Keep on reading for a complete set of results and grades from the show as CBS Sports was with you all night bringing you highlights of all the action from the ThunderDome inside Tropicana Field in Tampa Bay, Florida.

No. 1 Contendership — Kevin Owens vs. Sami Zayn vs. King Corbin vs. Jey Uso vs. Daniel Bryan vs. Cesaro (Elimination Chamber): Cesaro and Bryan were the first two in the match. After a fun opening 5 minutes, Corbin was next to enter. Bryan’s knee was worked over early, compromising him. Corbin dominated until Zayn was the next released. Zayn was a punching bag but eventually found his way to the top of a pod, battling with Cesaro. Zayn tried to climb along the side of the Chamber, but Cesaro kicked him off for the first big bump of the night. Cesaro then scored the first elimination after a Cesaro Swing and Sharpshooter on Corbin. Cesaro eliminated Corbin via submission. Owens was next out, immediately battering Zayn despite the pleadings of his former friend. The chaos escalated with four men in the ring all hitting big moves and laying each other out as Uso looked on from his pod. When Uso’s time finally hit, he and Owens immediately began to brawl. Owens hit a moonsault off the top of a pod onto the other four men, following up with Stunners on Cesaro, Bryan and Zayn, the last of which eliminated Zayn. Owens eliminated Zayn via pinfall.
