Elimination Chamber is now on the horizon and it appears that a number of matches have been revealed for the show already. The main event will see the traditional six-man Elimination Chamber match crown a number one contender for the Universal Championship and the only other match revealed for the show will see The New Day battle John Morrison and The Miz for the SmackDown Tag Team Championships.

This match will take place in Saudi Arabia and it appears that regardless of the outcome there will be a rematch on March 8th when WWE heads to The Wells Fargo Centre in Philadelphia as part of the final pay-per-view on the Road to WrestleMania.

WWE is pushing forward their Women’s Division at present and trying to prove that the women are as good as the men, which could be why there were rumors that the NXT Women’s Championship was going to have a name change and only be called the NXT Championship moving forward, which obviously became quite confusing.

Triple H was recently part of a media call where the question of the name change was raised and The Game set the record straight.

“There were conversations that were had. It was basically about not having to beat it into the ground when you say it, but it just got run with. When you have that many people working on a product and something gets taken the wrong way everyone when trying to do their jobs misread it.”

“It was never an edict, it was never anything than what it was. It was when you’re showing a graphic you don’t have to say title belt says women’s the announcers say women’s the graphic says women’s — everybody you get it, there’s pictures of women there you get what it is. You don’t have to beat it into the ground. It was more that, it just got run with and speculated on. You know it is what it is.”
