When the Elimination Chamber match was introduced to the WWE, Eric Bischoff was the man in storylines that took the credit for the creation of the match. But according to a new article on WWE.com, it was Triple H that invented the match. Here is what he had to say…

"I'm the one who invented it. I drew a square cage and put four other squares in the corners. And I said, ‘It's six guys. Two start and every few minutes, another cage opens and one more guys enters the fight, and everyone fights until there's one guy left.' I thought it could be interesting because, if the Superstars involved have issues, then there's intrigue.

In typical WWE form, it was twice as big as I envisioned it and twice as elaborate. We don't do anything small, so I should have known better. When I stood in it for the first time, I thought, ‘Jeez. Please don't tell anybody this was my idea!' One of the things I find funny is watching the guys who haven't been in it yet. They're talking about all these crazy things they're going to do in the Chamber. And then they go sailing over the rope for the first time and hit the floor, and their whole demeanor changes. Every bit of bravado goes out the window and they think, ‘Oh man, I've got another 30 minutes in here?'"
