WWE Elimination Chamber was a fun show. The women put on a great performance in the inaugural tag team Elimination Chamber match. The men ended the evening with a good main event.
Bayley and Sasha Banks won the inaugural WWE Women's Tag Team Championships. The Usos beat The Miz and Shane McMahon to capture the WWE Smackdown Tag Team Championships. Finn Balor was responsible for another title change when he defeated Bobby Lashley and Lio Rush to win the WWE Intercontinental Championship.
Ronda Rousey made quick work of Ruby Riott to retain the WWE Raw Women's Championship. Baron Corbin, with the help of Lashley and Drew McIntyre, beat Braun Strowman in a no disqualification match.
Daniel Bryan capped off the night by winning the six-man Elimination Chamber match to keep his WWE Championship.
Here are the WWE Elimination Chamber Winners and Losers:
Bayley and Sasha Banks. The inaugural WWE Women's Tag Team champions. The two Elimination Chamber matches were the best of the night, and the women tag teams set the bar high. In the end, Bayley and Sasha beat Mandy Rose and Sonya Deville to win the belts. It's another highlight for the friends, who rose up through the ranks and had some great matches in NXT. They had a rough patch in WWE, but the tag titles give them an opportunity to shine again.
Becky Lynch. "The Man" wasn't going to miss this. After Ronda Rousey made quick work of Ruby Riott, she glared at Charlotte. Charlotte entered the ring for a staredown. It was then that there was a commotion in the crowd and Becky Lynch made her way to the ring. She was walking with the aid of crutches, which turned into her weapon of choice. She roughed up Charlotte, then attacked Rousey. WWE will carry out this storyline, but there's no doubt Becky Lynch is a headliner. She will get her moment at WrestleMania.
Kofi Kingston. Kofi didn't win the WWE Championship, but he was clearly the crowd favorite in the main event. In the Elimination Chamber match, he eliminated Randy Orton to square off with Daniel Bryan. When Bryan hit him with the running knee, a lot of people thought it was over. Kofi surprised them by kicking out! The crowd reaction said it all. He's a legitimate title contender. He's won tag titles, Intercontinental championships and United States belts. The only major title he hasn't won is the WWE Championship. He's getting closer to that goal.
Finn Balor. Balor beat Bobby Lashley to win the Intercontinental Championship. The match wasn't the best of the night, but Balor executed his plan to perfection. He knocked down Lashley, then focused on Lio Rush. He pinned Rush to win the title. It's his first title win of any kind since his brief WWE Universal Championship reign.
The Miz and Shane McMahon. The Miz and Shane McMahon had this won. The Miz hit the Skill-Crushing Finale on Jimmy Uso and covered him, but Uso reversed it and rolled up The Miz. It's The Usos' sixth tag team championship win and the end of The Miz and Shane-O-Mac's run. There's something brewing between The Miz and Shane McMahon. The Miz was frustrated in the locker room after the match. Maybe they will face each other at WrestleMania?
Riott Squad. Sarah Logan and Liv Morgan lost their bid for the inaugural Women's Tag Team championships and Ruby Riott lost her match against Ronda Rousey for the WWE Raw Women's Championship. It was a bad night for the Riott Squad, especially Ruby. She lost her match in under two minutes.
Nia Jax and Tamina. Outside of Bayley and Sasha Banks, Nia and Tamina were top contenders for the Women's Tag Team Championships. They entered last and scored two eliminations. It's true it took the two remaining teams (Sasha/Bayley and Mandy Rose/Sonya Deville) to eliminate them, but it's still a loss.
Braun Strowman. Braun's match against Baron Corbin ended with him getting roughed up by the other big men. Drew McIntyre joined the fray along with Bobby Lashley. Braun might call himself the Monster Among Men, but he didn't look like it Sunday night. Corbin took advantage of the no disqualification stipulation to beat Braun.
