WWE adds new title match to Elimination Chamber in Australia


WWE held a press event in Perth, Australia tonight ahead of Saturday morning’s (February 24) live Elimination Chamber premium event.

The Elimination Chamber card is short on matches at the moment, with only four matches currently scheduled. With that in mind, WWE announced a new match for Elimination Chamber during this press event. However, the match will take place on the kick-off show rather than the main card. It will be the Kabuki Warriors (Asuka & Kairi Sane) defending the WWE Women’s Tag Team Championship against Candice LeRae and Indi Hartwell. Hartwell is from Australia, so this is especially exciting news for her.

The opening show begins one hour before the main card. I’m on the east coast of the United States of America, so for me that means the pre-show starts at 4 a.m. ET, just a few hours after Friday night’s episode of SmackDown goes off the air, with the main card set to begin at 5 a.m. ET.

Do you plan to further rearrange your sleep schedule to accommodate the tag team title match prior to the Elimination Chamber show? Let us know in the comments below and check out the updated Elimination Chamber lineup:

  • Elimination chamber: Becky Lynch vs. Bianca Belair vs. Liv Morgan vs. Tiffany Stratton vs. Naomi vs. Raquel Rodríguez

  • Women’s World Championship: Rhea Ripley (c) vs. Nia Jax
  • Undisputed championship in pairs: Judgment Day (c) versus Strong British Style
  • Grayson Waller Effect with Cody Rhodes and Seth Rollins
  • WWE Women’s Tag Team Championship: Kabuki Warriors (c) vs. Candice LeRae and Indi Hartwell (starter show)
