The WWE Elimination Chamber pay-per-view is less than two weeks away, but there are only three matches thus far that have been announced for Raw superstars.
So far, Ronda Rousey vs. Ruby Riott for the Raw Women's Championship has been announced. Braun Strowman will face Baron Corbin in a singles match, while Bobby Lashley will defend his Intercontinental Championship against Finn Balor.
On top of that, the tag teams of Sasha Banks-Bayley, Nia Jax-Tamina and Liv Morgan-Sarah Logan will also vie for the WWE Women's Tag Team Championships, along with the duos of Sonya Deville-Mandy Rose, The IIconics and Naomi-Carmella.
According to WrestleVotes, the rest of the matches involving Raw superstars had yet to be finalized heading into Monday warning. WrestleVotes noted that "anything planned is likely changing."
Source says as of yesterday, the RAW side of Elimination Chamber PPV still wasn’t decided outside of the women’s title.— WrestleVotes (@WrestleVotes) February 11, 2019
Tonight’s RAW production meeting is beginning shortly & of note, 2 weeks ago, the show was 100% rewritten at this time. So anything planned is likely changing
There are some complications that have hurt WWE's booking here, of course. For one, Seth Rollins is dealing with a back injury and needs to be rested before he faces Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania 35. Becky Lynch is also dealing with a bad knee and is unlikely to take part in any action at Elimination Chamber.
It's already been reported that Lesnar is unlikely to defend his Universal Championship at Elimination Chamber and Fastlane, all but ruling out another potential title match at the Feb. 24 show.
Kurt Angle teased retirement last week but has since engaged in a feud with Corbin, Bobby Lashley and Drew McIntyre. It's possible that he could go up against McIntyre in two weeks, with Corbin and Lashley already booked.
Kevin Owens revealed on this week's episode of Raw that he'll be returning in a month, though it wasn't said which brand he'll be on. That takes away the possibility of him making a surprise appearance at Elimination Chamber.
What This Means
The card should be finalized by next Monday, the final episode of Raw going into the Elimination Chamber pay-per-view. Time is running out on the creative team to finalize its card, but hopefully they'll be able to come up with some intriguing matches - because it's looking somewhat dull for Raw superstars right now.
