Following an announcement, Lesnar was back on Raw in a state of anger over the fact that Universal Champion Roman Reigns interfered in the matchup he was having with Lashley and resulted in him losing his WWE Title. In the end, The Beast demanded to be included in this Elimination Chamber Match as did WWE official Adam Pearce obliged.

Austin Theory, Riddle, and AJ Styles were able to win against Kevin Owens, Otis, and Rey Mysterio respectively to earn their seats on the card.
It is expected that the Elimination Chamber Match is set to commence with two Superstars inside the ring as well as four other competitors in their pods. After every five minutes, a pod’s door will open, which allows another participant to join in the fight. The process continues until the entire pod is filled.
