** Michael Cole and Corey Graves were on English-language commentary.

** In the sole kickoff match, Asuka & Kairi Sane retained their WWE Women’s Tag Team Titles against Indi Hartwell (who got a big home country reaction) & Candice LeRae.

** Becky Lynch won the title shot for the WWE Women’s World Championship after emerging victorious in the Women’s Elimination Chamber match.

** Judgment Day’s Finn Balor & Damian Priest retained the WWE Undisputed Tag Team Championships against Pete Dunne & Tyler Bate of New Catch Republic. One of the biggest reactions was for the ejection of Dominik Mysterio for interference. This was an excellent and competitive match. Balor got the eventual pin on Pete Dunne after hitting the Coup de Grace.

** The Grayson Waller effect was up next with guests Cody Rhodes and Seth Rollins. Austin Theory started the segment with some cheap heat, doing down Vegemite. Waller got a big reaction, doing a “shoey” with UFC fighter Tai Tuivasa after making his entrance.

 

Rollins stated that he was “days away” from being medically cleared and warned whoever won the Men’s Elimination Chamber match. Cody announced that he wants to wrestle The Rock one-on-one “any time, any place.” Rollins said there was no “one on one” when it comes to The Bloodline and that he would be there with Rhodes.

Austin Theory then started doing Rock impressions. He got hit with the Cody Cutter and then Rollins nailed him with The Stomp, as Waller watched on.

** Drew McIntyre won the title shot for Seth Rollins’ World Heavyweight Championship at WrestleMania with victory in the Men’s Elimination Chamber match.

** Paul Levesque made a brief appearance to announce an attendance figure of 52,590.

** The biggest reaction of the event was for Rhea Ripley, who main-evented with Nia Jax for the Women’s World Championship.

The match began with Jax outpowering Ripley, with the commentary team putting over how it was something the Champion was unaccustomed to. Ripley sold more than we’ve seen, taking some big power moves from Jax including a Samoan Drop onto the announce table, followed by a elbow that sent her through it.

Ripley still managed to kick out of the Annihilator. She then nailed a superplex and the Riptide for the win as the fireworks went off and she celebrated with her family.
