Two Elimination Chamber matches will take place with one title at stake and the other to decide a challenger at WrestleMania 39.

WWE 2023 Elimination Chamber will see superstars from Raw and SmackDown confined inside one of WWE's most physically demanding structures on Saturday, February 18 in Montreal.

Fans will be treated to the special event as the final major show before WrestleMania 39.

Two Elimination Chamber matches have already been announced for the annual event. 

United States champion Austin Theory will defend his title against as Seth Rollins, and Bronson Reed. 

The winner of the other Elimination Chamber match will determine who will challenge Raw women's champion Bianca Belair at Wrestlemania.

 Raquel Rodriguez, Asuka, Liv Morgan and Nikki Kross have all been confirmed as contenders.

A long-awaited undisputed WWE universal championship match between Roman Reigns and Sami Zayn is also expected to take place in Zayn's hometown following the drama that ensued with the Bloodline at Royal Rumble.

Things went south between Reigns and Zayn when Zayn struck the tribal chief with a chair at Royal Rumble. 

The Bloodline's adoption of "Honorary Uce" Zayn is one of the best storylines WWE has produced in a long time. 

At the Rumble, Reigns demanded that Zayn blast estranged best friend Owens with a chair shot to the head.

Instead, a hesitant Zayn struck Reigns with the chair. 

Zayn made it clear he was now gunning for Reigns and his titles but received a beat-down from Reigns, who said he'd give Zayn the match in front of Zayn's family in Montreal as payback for disrupting the natural order in the Bloodline.

WWE Elimination Chamber

It was announced on the January 30th episode of Monday Night Raw that Theory will defend his U.S. championship inside the Elimination Chamber. Qualifier matches took place over the next few weeks, putting many familiar names in the mix.

Montez Ford is an especially interesting dark horse candidate to take the title but much of the attention will be on the standing rivalry between Theory and Rollins as the match unfolds.

Adam Pearce subsequently announced that Belair would defend the Raw women's championship at WrestleMania 39 against the winner of a No. 1 contender's Elimination Chamber match.

 The four runner-ups from the Rumble match - Rodriguez, Morgan, Asuka and Kross, were chosen as the first four participants in the Elimination Chamber. 

Natalya and Carmella won their way into the match via qualifiers last week.

Edge & Beth Phoenix vs. Finn Balor & Rhea Ripley

 Ripley delivered a Con-Chair-To to Phoenix last year, forcing Edge to say "I quit" and lose a match to Balor. 

Phoenix has twice speared Ripley, who will be challenging Charlotte Flair for the SmackDown women's title at WrestleMania and she and Edge laid out the challenge for the match on Raw, with Balor accepting on their behalf on SmackDown last week.

Brock Lesnar vs Bobby Lashley
