After winning the Royal Rumble, Rhea Ripley chose to challenge Charlotte Flair for the SmackDown Women’s Championship at WrestleMania 39. And that means Raw Women’s Champion Bianca Belair will need a challenger of her own on the biggest show of the year.
Hey, that’s what the Elimination Chamber is for, right?
In fact, Adam Pearce announced during Monday Night Raw This week, the women’s Elimination Chamber match will take place at the Premium Live event of the same name on Saturday, February 18, 2023, at the Bell Center in Montreal, Quebec, Canada, with the winner getting a shot at Belair at WrestleMania.
It was also revealed that four wrestlers had already qualified simply by being the last four wrestlers remaining at the Royal Rumble (aside from Ripley, of course) – Raquel Rodriguez, Asuka, Nikki Cross, and Liv Morgan.
As for the other two points, we’ll get Fatal 4-Way next week to decide one of them: Candice LeRae vs. Michin vs. Carmella vs. Piper Niven.
The other spot will be determined at a later date.
