Austin Theory Retains WWE United States Title at Elimination Chamber

19 February 2023, Sunday
The Elimination Chamber opened with an awe-inspiring show as Bronson Reed, making his debut in the match, impressed greatly earlier on. Despite a more experienced field, four of whom were also making their first appearance in the Chamber, the men received a considerably longer time inside the ring. This elicited multiple "this is awesome" chants from the crowd during their immersive match. In the end, it was the veteran Austin Theory who reigned supreme, walking out with the WWE United States Championship still in tow.

At the Elimination Chamber event, Montez Ford was highlighted with newly acquired gear and multiple dives into the Chamber. The commentators highlighted his promising future as the Street Profits’ times seem to be coming to an end. Despite his valiant effort, Ford was eliminated, prompting referees to remove him, which left the door to opportunity open for Logan Paul to launch himself in and cost Seth Rollins the match with a Buckshot Lariat.

WWE's first Elimination Chamber provided an ideal platform for the burgeoning career of Austin Theory, as it was contested for the United States Championship. With top stars such as Lashley and Rollins taking on the secondary title in 2022, the United States Championship has become the de facto world title for Raw.

As of November 7th, 2022, Theory didn't look to be in good shape after his unsuccessful attempt to use his Money in the Bank briefcase to win the United States Championship. WWE promptly began the work of bringing Theory back up to his previous form.

He eventually regained the United States Championship after his baffling failed cash-in, and is now seen as the favorite to win this highly anticipated Chamber match. At the moment, Theory is deemed a -350 pick in the betting markets.

With Austin Theory likely heading into a feud with John Cena and Logan Paul set to face off against Rollins this April, then Elimination Chamber has set up multiple WrestleMania storylines.
