WWE Elimination 2022 Results | Saturday, February 19, 2022
Roman Reigns def. Goldberg—WWE Universal Championship
Saudi Arabia acknowledged the hell out of Roman Reigns.
There were some faint boos for Goldberg during his ring introduction.
I set the over/under line at 3.5 for the amount of total spears in this match. I took the under. With two spears from Goldberg, I was correct.
This was a perfect Goldberg match, which featured a clash of the champions, was filled with big moves and didn’t overstay its welcome.
Bianca Belair Wins Women’s Elimination Chamber
Alexa Bliss returned with her little girl gimmick, which is sure to upset the Internet Wrestling Monolith. Bliss remained popular with the live crowd.
There were loud “Doudrop” chants upon her entry.
Nikki A.S.H was eliminated first, by Rhea Ripley, in a surprise to nobody.
Bianca Belair once again performed her patented one-armed Gorilla Press that she debuted in Saudi Arabia.
Rhea Ripley def. Nikki A.S.H.; Liv Morgan def. Doudrop; Alexa Bliss def. Liv Morgan; Bianca Belair def. Alexa Bliss
Ronda Rousey and Naomi def. Sonya Deville and Charlotte
Like a true heel, Sonya Deville removed her arm sling as soon as this match started while Ronda Rousey had to wrestle this match with one hand tied behind her back.
Rousey had to sell for a significant stretch during this match, with one hand tied behind her back. This was a far cry from the dominant Ronda Rousey who can be a needle mover.
Drew McIntyre def. Madcap Moss—Falls Count Anywhere
This was Falls Count Anywhere, meaning Drew McIntyre could theoretically use his sword.
This match quickly became a two-on-one handicap match.
Madcap Moss took an extremely nasty bump where he landed right on the top of his head. Miraculously, he was no worse for wear, even sprinting around shortly after.
Becky Lynch def. Lita—WWE Raw Women’s Championship
Lita it a moonsault on Becky Lynch in the middle of the ring, and it legitimately seemed like she was going to win. Everybody in the building bought it.
These two built a head of steam in the final sequences of the match, but then Becky Lynch just randomly hit a Manhandle Slam and won.
The Usos and The Viking Raiders Battle to a No Contest
The Viking Raiders vs. The Usos has been the worst feud in WWE since it started. It’s been one-sided and dominated by The Usos. Even when Ivar finally won last night on SmackDown, he did so by disqualification. Punctuating WWE’s worst feud, The Viking Raiders were jumped from behind and the match never even got started.
Brock Lesnar Wins Men’s Elimination Chamber
Austin Theory taking selfies with other wrestlers trapped in the Elimination Chamber Pod is the best use of this selfie gimmick. Riddle was all too happy to take a selfie with Austin Theory.
Brock Lesnar is looking to make uncomfortable history as the only man to dethrone all four Black WWE champions in history.
Brock Lesnar was the most popular star on this show and it wasn’t even close.
Seth Rollins and Austin Theory started this match and nobody brought up Theory’s history as Seth Rollins’ disciple.
Seth Rollins buckle-bombed Austin Theory into Bobby Lashley’s pod in what may be the start to a WrestleMania program between Rollins and Lashley.
Despite Bobby Lashley being out of the Chamber (in concussion protocol), the Chamber selected Lashley to enter, meaning Lesnar had to wait his turn. Lesnar was like “screw that,” and forced his way into the Chamber, laying waste to the entire field to win the WWE Championship.
Brock Lesnar defeated all four Elimination Chamber combatants to win WWE Championship.
