Becky Lynch vs the Authorities again
Trips and Steph are in the ring to open the show. They hype Elimination Chamber event matches. Finally, they mentioned Ronda vs Ruby and say, “if Ronda wins she will go to WM and face the Man Becky Lynch or that was the plan until last week”. Now we are getting the recap from last week.
They now inform that Becky did see the doctor in the weekend and Becky enters; she is not hobbling anymore. She mocks Steph for hitting her. Trips apologize to Becky for his statements last week and ask her to leave everything behind and lift her suspension. Now, they are asking Becky to apologize to them for her actions last week to get her Wrestle Mania match.
Becky replies that many Superstars have been screwed over by the McMahon family and that she won’t apologize. Steph gets in Becky’s face and Trips tried to calm them down. Trips are telling her whether she wants to fight with them now and throw her WM match away or she will apologize to them and go to WM. Becky has until the end of the night to decide.

The losing team will enter the Elimination Chamber Match first. Sasha dodges Nia to slap her and tags Liv Morgan. She is thrown across the ring by Nia but counters with an enziguiri to tag Sarah.

Elias gets interrupted
Elias is in the ring but is cut off twice with Becky-Balor backstage segment. Balor tells Lynch that pride has got the better of many men, and it shouldn’t get the better of her. Elias is announced again but is interrupted again with a video highlight of Seth Rollins. Round 3- Elias is announced but Lucha House Party makes their way to the ring. Definitely a prank from backstage producer Jeff Jarrett.
Elias is pissed that he is getting interrupted by someone every time he comes out to perform and that he was not nominated for the Grammys. Lucha House Party replies that they want to entertain the WWE Universe and they want to walk with Elias and Elias starts his song. After the song, Elias asks Luchas how was his song and they are not happy. The crowd started chanting “You Suck”. Elias says if they think it is so easy to perform then why don’t they do it. Kalisto somehow plays the guitar admirably. Elias, then, breaks a guitar on him and runs away.
