WWE Elimination Chamber: Perth is officially in the history books. Both Becky Lynch and Drew McIntyre punched their tickets to WrestleMania XL by winning their respective chamber matches. However, multiple superstars’ dreams of making it to WrestleMania were dashed. One such superstar is Bobby Lashley, who came up short in the chamber match despite delivering a stellar performance.

Lashley took to X to signal his involvement at WrestleMania XL, despite losing inside the barbaric structure. He apologized to his fans for not coming out of the chamber as a victor. Lashley promised the WWE Universe that he would become a champion again in the future. In the video post, the 47-year-old could be seen warming up for his match.

But I promise you this…I WILL make it to #WrestleMania one way or another and I WILL be a Champion again. When, not if.

The men’s Elimination Chamber Match over-delivered and blew the minds of the WWE Universe in Australia. Multiple moments made the match iconic and a potential show-stealer. Notable moments were Bobby spearing Logan Paul through the plexiglass into the Elimination Chamber pod and Randy Orton hitting a RKO out of nowhere on The Maverick.

Fans are eager to find out The Almighty’s plans for WrestleMania. Last year, he was scheduled to face Bray Wyatt. However, The Eater of Worlds was diagnosed with COVID, which exaggerated a heart issue, and was pulled out of the match. As a result, Bobby was forced to miss the action during the event and only appeared to flaunt his newly won Andre The Giant Memorial Battle Royal Trophy.

Bobby Lashley and The Street Profits will likely face The Final Testament at WrestleMania XL

In the final SmackDown before Elimination Chamber: Perth, The Street Profits battled AOP in a tag match. Karrion Kross interfered, which led to Lashley attacking him mid-match. Both changed heavy rights until Kross got the better of the 2-time WWE Champion. He targeted Lashley’s right arm and injured him in the process.

After the assault, the MMA fighter was seen backstage being attended to by a doctor. However, the 47-year-old made it to Australia, but the after-effects of the assault forced him to get eliminated. B-Fab, a former member of Hit Row, has joined forces with Lashley and his crew. It appears WWE is building towards a massive showdown heading into WrestleMania XL.

Therefore, it can be speculated that The Final Testament will battle The Pride at the Grandest Stage of Them All. Considering the perfect blend of strength, size, and agility, the proposed match can prove to be enthralling. Moreover, with WrestleMania approaching, it will be interesting to see how WWE builds towards this potential massive showdown.
