MATCH : Chris Jericho v HHH v JBL v Jeff Hardy v Shawn Michaels v Umaga


EVENT : No Way Out 2008

VENUE : Paradise, Nevada

DATE : 17th February 2008

STIPULATION : Elimination Chamber Match

BACKGROUND : The main event of the 2008 No Way Out PPV was the Raw brand's elimination chamber match. The winner would get a shot at the WWE Championship at Wrestlemania 24 against title holder Randy Orton. The contenders for the match were Chris Jericho who supposedly invented the idea, HHH who has competed in the most Elimination Chamber matches, JBL, fans favourite Jeff Hardy, first ever EC winner Shawn Michaels and the Samoan Bulldozer Umaga. All six men were capable of winning this match so who would go to Wrestlemania?

MATCH REVIEW : This was one of the shorter Elimination Chamber matches but still up there as one of the most entertaining. As I said, any of these six men could have won this match so the competitive manner of it made it more realistic. I am not so sure they picked the correct winner as I would have liked to had seen Jeff Hardy in the main event of Wrestlemania and the crowd were red hot on him in 2008. The WWE title match ended up as HHH v Randy Orton v John Cena at Wrestlemania. A very entertaining match with a great story, I am a huge fan of Elimination Chamber matches as they do tell a great story!
