The finish of the Women’s Elimination Chamber match at yesterday’s event in Jeddah was changed to further push Bianca Belair.
Belair, who won the match by last eliminating Alexa Bliss has already had an impressive run on the main roster, winning the 2021 Women’s Royal Rumble match and the SmackDown Women’s Championship at WrestleMania 37.
Pwinsider reports that the original plan for the Chamber match was changed, and that while Belair was always scheduled to win, it would’ve been much closer with Alexa Bliss:
“The discussed finish of the Women’s Elimination Chamber bout was a double pin with Bianca Belair getting her shoulder up at the last second as a way to protect Alexa Bliss as it was her first official match back but the decision was later made to go with the KOD for the clean pinfall to make Bianca look stronger heading into her Wrestlemania 38 bout with Becky Lynch.”
Bliss lasted the longest in the Women’s Chamber match, competing for over 15 minutes before being eliminated by Belair.
The “EST” will face RAW Women’s Champion Becky Lynch at WrestleMania 38.
