The event has been a staple of the WWE since 2010. But this year’s Elimination Chamber definitely delivered big. Apart from becoming the most viewed version of the event, it was the most grossing as well. The WWE officials would be buzzing with the second consecutive event achieving this feat. And we are just in the month of February, with WrestleMania 39 fever yet to grip the wrestling community.

2. Meteoric Rise in viewership numbers, breaking up a record that was set just last year

This can also be credited to the great use of Raw and SmackDown. The weekly shows were used cleverly to build and advance storylines to great effect. The Bloodline – Sami Zayn saga definitely created interest. A short video involving the Canadian and Roman Reigns became the most-watched WWE clip ever.

3. Largest Montreal crowd ever at a WWE event

This one would count as a proud achievement for the higher-ups. It surpassed the highest attendance ever in any WWE event held in Montreal. Considering the last PLE that took place in the city was SummerSlam, back in 2019. It is one of the four ever-present events in the WWE. That’s why this achievement is nothing short of extraordinary.
