WWE has been promoting this Sunday’s WWE Championship Match as taking place in an “all-new” Elimination Chamber.
Bryan Alvarez noted on Thursday’s edition of Wrestling Observer Live that “slight” changes have indeed been made to the structure ahead of this Sunday’s show. He did not, however, offer details on what changes were made.
In 2015, Stephanie McMahon said on a podcast that WWE had discontinued the Elimination Chamber pay-per-view due to the logistics of hanging the Elimination Chamber, which weighs more than 10 tons. There were also issues on hanging the Elimination Chamber above the ring in some arenas because many buildings now have large scoreboards where the structure would be.
