Natalya and Liv Morgan kicked-off the festivities in the Women’s Elimination Chamber match. To begin with, both women threw each other into the chamber metal bearings. After continuing their back-and-forth for a while, Raquel Rodriguez entered the field. She then ensured to put her power on display. The former NXT Women’s Champion literally manhandled both Morgan & Nattie to get going.
Clock kept ticking down and Nikki Cross’ pod opened next. She performed a crossbody from the top of Carmella’s pod, taking out everyone in the process and throwing caution in the wind. Next, Carmella joined the fray and did some unnecessary trash talking with Asuka.
In the meanwhile, Raquel Rodriguez drove Nikki Cross through the chamber pod, breaking everything as a result. Following this, the former Sanity member got eliminated. In another dumbfounding moment, Liv Morgan performed a top rope sunset-flip powerbomb over Rodriguez. However, later on, Morgan passed out after Rodriguez and Asuka ganged up over her.
Next elimination came when Carmella and Asuka launched a flurry of offenses over Raquel. Unable to sustain a plethora of super-kicks and knee strikes, the Powerhouse got pinned. In the end, Asuka and Mella were the final two women remaining. But, the Princess of Tomorrow proved way too superior for the Princess of Staten Island. The former made Mella submit over the Asuka Lock.
