By Mike Johnson on 2018-02-25 23:27:00

Welcome to PWInsider.com’s live, ongoing coverage of the 2018 Elimination Chamber PPV from Las Vegas, Nevada!

KICKOFF SHOW

The panel is Renee Young, Booker T, David Otunga and Peter Rosenberg.

They noted Paul Heyman was in attendance at the PPV.

They announced Kurt Angle would be taking questions during the Kickoff show.

They interviewed Paige.  Renee Young noted that she couldn’t compete tonight due to injury and Paige stated that she could not, but she takes credit for the match taking place as it’s all what she started.  She put over her Absolution mates in that they are a real unit while the other friendships and alliances are going to fold during the Chamber match.  She said that one of them was going to walk out as the Raw Women’s champion and that was good for her.

Paige was asked about Ronda Rousey coming in to sign for WWE.  She said that Ronda fought once or twice a year in UFC but in WWE, she must do that 100 times more.  She told Rousey, “Welcome aboard.”

Backstage, Bayley and Sasha Banks were interviewed.  They said it was every woman for themselves, but they’ll team to eliminate everyone else.  They each acted as if they were going to win tonight to build their rivalry.  They said that Alexa Bliss was using Mickie James, which led to Mickie telling them that they think they know everything, but they don’t.  She also predicted their friendship would end as soon as the pods opened in the Chamber.

They aired a Matt Hardy promo saying he felt Sister Abigail eating at his soul, so Bray Wyatt would feel the power of his Woken Warriors and be deleted.

They broadcast a video feature on Asuka vs. Nia Jax.

The panel discussed the Raw Gauntlet match and Seth Rollins' incredible performance.  Charly Caruso interviewed Rollins who said that his performance meant nothing if he can't get to Brock Lesnar at Wrestlemania 34.

The panel discussed Titus O'Neil's charitable efforts and then segued into Titus Worldwide challenging for the Raw Tag Team championship tonight.

Kurt Angle was interviewed next.  He was asked about Jason Jordan's status.  Angle said he should be back immediately after Wrestlemania.  Angle was asked who was going to win the Chamber matches.  He said it was a tough decision.   He ran down the competitors but didn't really predict.  Angle was asked about John Cena not having a road to Wrestlemania if he didn't win.  Angle said John has been distracted of late but will win the title if he gets focused.  Angle picked Alexa for the women's Chamber match.  Angle said he believed Braun, Seth and Roman would have the best chance to beat Brock Lesnar at this stage of their career.  Kurt said Raw was happy to have Ronda Rousey as she's one of the best female athletes of all time.

Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson vs. Bo Dallas and Curtis Axel

Axel started off with Anderson.   The Balor Club had the advantage early.  Gallows worked him over in the corner and led a “nerd” chant.   Gallows and Anderson tagged in and out, working over Axel.  Dallas was able to tag in and drilled Anderson with a knee to the kidneys.  For some reason, the camera just panned upwards to the Chamber structure.  Anderson drilled Axel with a karate kick to the head but Dallas had been tagged in and knocked him off the ropes to the floor as they went to commercial.

When they returned, Dallas nailed Anderson with a clothesline.  They tagged in and out, working over Anderson.    They scored several two counts.  Anderson sent Dallas into the ropes as Axel went to the top, crotching Axel.  Gallows tagged in and they regained control, nailing the Magic Killer for the pin.

Your winners, Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson!

OK.

Backstage, the Revival were interviewed by Mike Rome.  They said their opinions on the match aren’t suitable for TV.  What that was, was a mockery of tag team wrestling and said that wasn’t their tag team wrestling.

They aired a video feature on the Men's Elimination Chamber bout.  They closed out with Paul Heyman joining the panel to announce that whoever survives the Elimination Chamber will face off with Brock Lesnar tomorrow on Raw.  Heyman said his concern is for the winner of the Chamber, because they will go from the defining moment of their career to self-preservation when they meet Brock Lesnar on Raw.
