Our prediction is the ‘Scottish Warrior’ will overcome all the odds and retain his WWE Championship. The reason is simple- Drew McIntyre vs Sheamus has a solid potential to be a WrestleMania match if Edge chooses Reigns as his opponent.

There is no better WrestleMania match for the WWE Championship than McIntyre vs Sheamus; the story writes itself! The Fiend may also return from his hiatus after being burned by Orton at TLC 2020.

This chamber match will setup the feuds going into the ‘Grand Daddy of them All’ – WrestleMania! Fiend may cost Orton, Sheamus will want another shot at WrestleMania. So after majorly taking WWE’s WrestleMania plans into consideration, Drew McIntyre is our pick to win the WWE Championship Elimination Chamber match.

Prediction: Drew McIntyre (c).

Bobby Lashley (c) vs Keith Lee vs Riddle – WWE US Championship Triple Threat Match

Lashley vs Lee vs Riddle is a match a lot of people are sleeping on. The Riddle vs Lashley feud for the US Championship has been pretty interesting and now there’s a ‘Limitless’ person too in the mix.

Bobby Lashley is on a dominant run since winning the title back in August 2020. He’s put down many challengers, including Riddle, but he’s never put down someone like Keith Lee.

Keith Lee’s momentum has somewhat derailed in the past few weeks, but winning the US Title this Sunday would be a perfect restart for him. Keith Lee could possibly win the US Title on Sunday and then enter a feud with Bobby Lashley for the title at WrestleMania!

Prediction: New United States Champion – Keith Lee (c).

WWE originally scheduled Asuka (c) vs Lacey Evans for the PPV, but we don’t know if it will now. For those unaware, Lacey Evans announced her pregnancy on Monday Night Raw. And guess what? It’s not kayfabe! Lacey is actually pregnant and hence, the Raw Women’s Championship may get scrapped altogether.
