It’s interesting to note that Lacey Evans vs. RAW Women’s Champion Asuka is still listed by WWE for Sunday’s Elimination Chamber pay-per-view after Evans announced her legitimate pregnancy last Monday. It’s possible that the match will be officially scrapped and replaced during tonight’s go-home SmackDown.
With Evans vs. Asuka being scrapped, there are just 4 matches still on the list for Sunday’s pay-per-view. Fightful Select reports that tentative plans have a women’s tag team match being added to Elimination Chamber. The original plan was for Lana and Naomi to face WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions Nia Jax and Shayna Baszler.
There’s no word on if Lana and Naomi vs. Jax and Baszler will still happen due Asuka now being without an opponent, and with Jax and Baszler defending against Dakota Kai and Raquel Gonzalez on the March 3 edition of WWE NXT.
Stay tuned for more and remember to join us for live go-home SmackDown coverage tonight at 8pm ET, where the Elimination Chamber card could be finalized. Below is the current Chamber card listed on the WWE website:
