Lashley regained the championship at Saturday’s Royal Rumble by pinning Brock Lesnar after interference from Roman Reigns.

Lesnar is scheduled to appear on tonight’s edition of Raw from Cincinnati to announce who his opponent will be at WrestleMania 38 after winning the men’s Royal Rumble match.

Elimination Chamber is the only WWE premium event scheduled between now and the two-night WrestleMania on April 2 and 3 at AT&T Stadium in Texas.

Is either Roman or Lesner scheduled to appear on the Elimination Chamber show?

Goldberg wins the chamber and then Lashley gets his win back at Mania.

Big E and Kofi lose to the Uso’s in the mania pre show for the seventh time.

Good shit

I don’t get why they don’t use the chamber match as #1 contenders match for the other world title. I think it would put more importance on it as what ends up happening so many years is they swap the belt at the chamber, then they pull the contender out of thin air leading to a mania match that feels cold.
