As we go into the dreaded chamber, let’s take a look at some surprises that might take place. WWE has emphasized little about the PPV apart from the chamber matches. Hence, it leaves us with ample room to speculate.

#5 Braun Strowman enters the chamber

After suffering from a blood infection, Strowman came back to WWE on the go-home edition of RAW. He demanded to be given a spot inside the RAW Elimination Chamber match. But he did not get the chance, as he was not a former WWE Champion.

Technically, the Universal Championship holds equal value to the WWE title, and they both are recognized as world titles. Hence, we would not put it past Strowman to attack any of the five superstars at the very last moment.

#4 Lacey Evans wins the Women’s Title match or finds a replacement

As she announced on WWE RAW last week, Lacey Evans is pregnant. Although there are rumors about who the father is, ‘The Lady of WWE‘ is actually pregnant in real life.

However, Evans has not withdrawn from her title match against Asuka on Sunday. We all know how sensible Asuka is, and she might not attack Evans at all. Hence, Evans could trick Asuka and win the Women’s title.

Apart from this, Evan could trick Charlotte Flair into replacing her in the title match, only to cost her the opportunity by interrupting the match.

#3 The Miz cashes in his Money in the Bank after the Elimination Chamber match

The Miz tried to cash in his Money in the Bank at TLC 2020. But he might actually have a better chance during the Elimination Chamber match.

Kofi Kingston already replaced the Miz inside the chamber this past week. However, everyone knows how exhausted the Champion becomes after the grueling chamber match. Hence, it would be a great opportunity for Miz to cash in the contract on Drew McIntyre.

#2 Parker Boudreaux appears on WWE Elimination Chamber

WWE is promoting its newest signee, Parker Boudreaux, as the new Brock Lesnar. Main roster stars, Matt Riddle and Braun Strowman recognized and challenged him, even before he debuted.

Although Boudreaux does not condone the comparisons, the resemblance is uncanny. Now that Boudreaux is a well-known topic among the fans, WWE might try to capitalize on the momentum.

Boudreaux will not take part in a match, but he could appear in a backstage segment with Strowman or Riddle.

#1 The Fiend reappears inside the Elimination Chamber

Randy Orton set the Fiend on fire at TLC 2020. However, since then, Fiend‘s associate Alexa Bliss kept hinting at a resurrection.

Bliss regularly interrupted in Orton’s matches and cut eerie promos. Last week on RAW, Bliss drew a pentagram and said Wyatt will soon rise. Pentagrams are related to satanic rituals, and the ashes on Bliss’s hands seemed to be of The Fiend himself.

Our speculation is the Fiend, and Bliss will appear inside the pod with Orton to injure him. Or later on at a crucial moment to cost ‘The Viper’ the title.

Either way, The Fiend’s appearance will not be beneficial for Orton, or anyone in the Chamber. What do you think could be some surprises at the WWE Elimination Chamber? Let us know in the comments below.
