Drew McIntyre will face Seth Rollins for the World Heavyweight Championship at WrestleMania after winning the men’s Elimination Chamber match.

McIntyre got the pin on Randy Orton at Optus Stadium in Perth, Australia, in Saturday’s Elimination Chamber PLE.

The match began with LA Knight and Drew McIntyre in the ring, as Kevin Owens, Randy Orton, Logan Paul and Bobby Lashley waited in their pods.

Third to enter the match was Kevin Owens, followed by Bobby Lashley.

There had still been no eliminations as Randy Orton entered the match.

Logan Paul was last out, with still no eliminations. Owens went right after Paul as soon as his pod was open. A revived Lashley then put both Owens and Paul through two of the pod walls.

Lashley was the first to be eliminated after a Claymore from McIntyre.

AJ Styles then appeared with a steel chair, entering through the door that was open for Lashley to leave and going after LA Knight. He hit Knight multiple times before delivering the Styles Clash on the chair.

McIntyre capitalized and pinned Knight for the second elimination.

Kevin Owens was next to be eliminated as Randy Orton hit him with the RKO. Orton was heavily selling his lower back throughout the match after seemingly hurting himself when delivering a draping DDT to Owens earlier in the match.

Logan Paul produced a set of brass knuckles but as he was showboating, Orton hit the RKO and eliminated him.

The finish came when the eliminated Logan Paul blasted Orton with the brass knuckles, allowing McIntyre to pin Randy for the win.
