Huge Potential Spoiler For WWE Elimination Chamber

WWE Elimination Chamber 2023

Despite huge focus already being put on WrestleMania 39, Elimination Chamber is set to feature multiple title matches and bouts with huge WrestleMania implications.

With Roman Reigns defending the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship against Sami Zayn, the men’s Elimination Chamber match will see Austin Theory’s United States Title on the line. After a series of qualifying matches, it has been confirmed that Theory will be in action against Johnny Gargano, Damian Priest, Bronson Reed, Seth Rollins, and Montez Ford.

It was recently reported that Austin Theory is set to face John Cena at WrestleMania, leading some to believe that means he will be losing the United States Title at Elimination Chamber. However, that might not be the case.

As reported by Dave Meltzer in the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Theory recently filmed a television show which airs in March while holding the United States Title. Crucially this means the show will broadcast after Elimination Chamber, hinting that Theory will still be the champion by the time the general public sees the show.

“Theory taped a television show that airs in March holding the U.S. title belt. That doesn’t mean 100 percent that he’s retaining it here, but it is something.”

Austin Theory is currently enjoying his second reign as United States Champion having regained the title in a Triple-Threat-Match at Survivor Series.
