Who Qualified For WWE Elimination Chamber On Raw?
Men's and women's chamber fields filled with final three qualifying matches.
The fields for the men's and women's Elimination Chamber matches at the eponymous PLE later this month have been set, with three qualifying matches Monday night on Raw filling the remaining spots.
For the men's chamber match, which will be contested for the United States Championship, Montez Ford and Damian Priest will join US Champ Austin Theory, Seth Rollins, Johnny Gargano and Bronson Reed. Ford defeated Elias, while Priest beat Ford's Street Profits compatriot Angelo Dawkins in singles action. Dawkins/Priest in particular was a really good, entertaining match that showcased more of what Angelo can do in one-on-one matchups.
Meanwhile, a returning Carmella stole a pin to win a fatal four-way match involving Piper Niven, Candice LeRae and Mia Yim, sending her to the women's chamber match along with Asuka, Natayla, Liv Morgan, Nikki Cross and Raquel Rodriguez. The winner of that match will face Bianca Belair for the Raw Women's Championship at WrestleMania.

Judging by the lineup for the women's chamber, Asuka would be the smart money, while Raquel would be the sleeper bet, as she and Belair could have a really intriguing power battle.
It's a bit surprising to see how quickly WWE filled the fields for these two chamber matches, with three shows to spare between Raw and SmackDown. In years prior, the last spot would be filled on the SmackDown before the PLE. That's at least a nice change of pace.
