WWE Elimination Chamber 2023 Winners and Rankings
Asuka won the Women’s Elimination Chamber
Nikki Cross was eliminated just as quickly as she entered the Chamber, but she got the high spot by diving off the chamber onto the field.
Not surprisingly, fans strongly supported Natalia. Surprisingly, there were chants of “Let’s go Nattie/Limis Liv!”
Asuka was immediately disturbed by chants of “Asuka’s gonna kill you” as she entered the Chamber.
Liv Morgan was eliminated with a combination Sharpshooter and a modified armbar between Natalya and Asuka, respectively. Canada was furious.
As WWE continued to fly by elimination, Raquel Rodriguez was protected by a double cover between Asuka and Carmella.
Women’s Elimination Chamber Grade: C+
Bobby Lashley def. Brock Lesnar By DQ
Brock Lesnar is technically considered a Canadian citizen, and he showed based on his crowd reaction.
Bobby Lashley kicked out of two early F-5s after hitting a barrage of Spears. This match reminded me of the awesome Goldberg vs. Brock Lesnar match at WrestleMania 33.
Despite the hot start, this match had such a smooth finish as baby Brock Lesnar landed a low blow during the Hurt Lock. Bray Wyatt challenged the winner of this match, but it remains to be seen if Lashley’s DQ win will be considered enough to advance to Wyatt.
Brock Lesnar vs. Bobby Lashley Grade: B-
Edge and Beth Phoenix def. Judgment Day
Fionn Balor walked out with an evil mask, and I wanted him to wrestle in it. Sadly, he didn’t.
WWE aired its first WrestleMania Hollywood parody as Seth Rollins and Becky Lynch did a parody Joker. It was middle. I wish WWE would parody Black movies since they will actually be in Inglewood, not Hollywood.
Dominik Mysterio fans showed up with chants of “fk you Dominik!” They cried “na-na-na-na…goodbye” when he escaped to the back. Mysterio was the biggest star of a match in Edge’s home country of Canada.
Beth Phoenix was late breaking up a pinfall so the referee had to count her up.
Interestingly, Edge and Beth defeated Phoenix with the Shatter Machine.
Judgment Day vs. Edge and Beth Phoenix Grade:B
The theory defeated the Extinction Society of Men
Montez Ford wore new, more traditional gear, with Michael Cole and Corey Graves touting him as a future singles superstar. They also played up Ford giving the “US” title to the United States Championship, and noted that Ford had promised that his first defense would be against his tag team partner Angelo Dawkins. The days of Street Profits feel numbered.
Michael Cole asked for all the history between the competitors in this match dating back to their days in NXT, which was one of the many refreshing changes to the Triple H Era.
The Elimination Chamber opened with Seth Rollins and Johnny Gargano going head-to-head for the first time ever.
Bronson Reed was spectacular from the moment he entered the Chamber and destroyed the field.
Montez Ford attempted the People’s Elbow before Bronson Reed took him out.
The big moment in this match came when Montez Ford hung upside down and dove from the top of the Room like Spiderman. It was a very impressive place.
It took four WWE Superstars to eliminate Bronson Reed, including a Frog Splash from the top of the pod by Montez Ford. Reed is slowly building into a strong heel for Cody Rhodes this summer.
After a great performance, officials took Ford out of the Chamber to give WWE a reason to open the Chamber. Then out came Logan Paul to screw Seth Rollins.
Men’s Elimination Chamber Grade: A+
Roman Reigns def. Sami Zayn
Roman Reigns, the champion, walked out first. As expected, it received immense heat.
Michael Cole made a great historical parallel between Reigns and Bruno Sammartino, noting that Ivan Koloff ended Sammartino’s streak. Koloff is from Montreal.
Of course there was a “If the Romans Win Us Riot” sign as well as “Sami your Tribal Leader.”
No other match failed to follow the men’s Elimination Chamber, but this fan had four chants before Reigns and Sami even touched.
Roman Reigns talking trash to Sami Zayn’s wife and kids was everything I ever hoped it would be.
Sami Zayn’s hot spots were great, including a Superman Punch and a Helluva kick for a nearfall.
Zayn looked sick to his stomach late in the match.
Jimmy Uso beat this match and laid out Sami Zayn, but Zayn miraculously kicked out.
At one point, Sami Zayn hit Roman Reigns harder than Kevin Owens did.
After the second chokehold, Jey Uso hit the ring, prompting Reigns and Jey to recreate elements of the Reigns-Sami steel chair moment. This time, Zayn accidentally speared Jey Uso before Jey could make up his mind.
Roman Reigns vs. Sami Zayn Grade: A+
