The WWE is in Australia, providing a special opportunity for Australian wrestler Indi Hartwell to perform in front of her home crowd. Hartwell, alongside her partner Candice LeRae, faced off against the Kabuki Warriors in an electrifying tag team title match that was announced a day earlier.

Before the match, Indi Hartwell and Candice LeRae make a grand homecoming entrance at the Elimination Chamber, delighting the Australian crowd. Despite the loss in the title match, Hartwell received a massive standing ovation from the passionate Australian crowd. Fans deeply appreciated Indi Hartwell and Candice LeRae’s performances, showing strong support for the local star in Australia.

As the match began, Hartwell kicked off against Kairi Sane with enthusiasm. Using her power holds, she showcased her strength and skills, earning the full support of the cheering crowd. The Kabuki Warriors gained control when Candice LeRae entered, separating her from tagging Hartwell. Throughout this, the crowd continued to chant, “We want Indi.” Asuka utilized some heel tactics to keep Indi outside the ring, but eventually, Indi got the hot tag, entering the ring to a eruption of joy from the crowd.

Hartwell ran through a series of offensive moves on the champions. The challengers managed to get a few near falls, building the excitement in the arena. However, Kairi Sane intervened just as Hartwell was helping LeRae walk the top rope, bringing both challengers down. Seizing the opportunity, Sane delivered an elbow drop to LeRae, securing the pinfall victory for the Kabuki Warriors.
