A new match has been added to the WWE Elimination Chamber lineup and it features two women with RR initials as Ronda Rousey will defend the Raw Women’s Championship against Ruby Riott.
Last week on Raw, Rousey beat Riott Squad members, Liv Morgan and Sarah Logan, easily. Rousey wanted to face Riott as well, but Riott backed away. In my WWE Raw Deal review, I wrote that I thought it meant they would do the match next week at Raw or at Elimination Chamber since Rousey needed a match. Obviously, WWE is going with Elimination Chamber for it.
Will Riott win the title from Rousey? No. It’s not going to happen. This is likely just a tune-up match for Rousey on the road to WrestleMania.
Ruby’s Riott Squad friends Morgan and Logan commented on the match on Twitter:
Almost one year & three months ago, the #RiottSquad debuted at the Toyota Center in Houston, Texas… In nine days, everything comes full circle & we all leave that same building as champions. #WWEChamber#WWEWomensTagTeamChampions#RawWomensChampion @sarahloganwwe @RubyRiottWWE pic.twitter.com/jxaSFv1MSH

Here’s the updated Elimination Chamber Lineup:
WWE Championship Elimination Chamber Match: Daniel Bryan (c) vs. Randy Orton vs. Mustafa Ali vs. Samoa Joe vs. AJ Styles vs. Jeff Hardy
Smackdown Tag Team Championships: The Miz and Shane McMahon (c) vs. The Usos
Women’s Tag Team Titles Elimination Chamber Match: Nia Jax and Tamina vs. Sarah Logan and Liv Morgan vs. Sasha Banks and Bayley vs. Mandy Rose and Sonya Deville vs. Peyton Royce and Billie Kay vs. Carmella and Naomi
Raw Women’s Championship: Ronda Rousey (c) vs. Ruby Riott

Some of the other matches could be: Bobby Lashley vs. Finn Balor for the Intercontinental Title, Braun Strowman and Kurt Angle vs. Baron Corbin and Drew McIntyre, Andrade vs. Rey Mysterio and Chad Gable/Bobby Roode vs. The Revival for the Raw Tag Team Titles.
That would be a full card if they add all of those matches. We will find out more on Raw and Smackdown this week.
