One of the most dangerous and lethal stipulations for matches in the WWE is the Elimination Chamber. From steel cage and glasses to weapons, you have it all. Thanks to former WWE Raw General Manager Eric Bischoff, the vicious Elimination Chamber was introduced in 2002.
From the year 2010, WWE introduced the Elimination Chamber pay-per-view (PPV) to give the millions of WWE fans around the world more opportunity to savour these dangerous matches. In pro wrestling, more stunts and dangerous manoeuvres mean more eyeballs.
More eyeballs = more money!
The Elimination Chamber 2017 features just one match inside that iconic steel structure and superstars from only the WWE SmackDown Live roster are eligible to feature in it.
Three championship belts -- the WWE World Championship title, the WWE SmackDown Tag Team titles and the WWE SmackDown Women's Championship title -- are on the line in the PPV.
