10 Elimination Chamber One-Hit Wonders

Forty-four Superstars, past and present, have tempted fate by entering the cruel, unforgiving steel domain known as the Elimination Chamber, to date. Of those athletes, slightly more than half — 24, to be precise — can boast having competed in exactly one Elimination Chamber contest. (VIEW ELIMINATION CHAMBER MATCH PHOTOS)

These men are the Elimination Chamber one-hit wonders.

The reasons vary as to why these Superstars limited their Chamber outings to one. In some instances, there’s reluctance to re-enter such a barbaric contest if the rewards aren’t work the risk.  (“Mr. Money in the Bank” Dolph Ziggler, a Chamber one-timer who’s already guaranteed a World Title Match, said as much on the Feb. 1 SmackDown.) In other cases, the prominence of certain Superstars diminishes after their Chamber debut, causing them to be left off subsequent Elimination Chamber Match lineups. Sometimes, it’s simply a matter of timing: Some one-hit wonders listed here entered their first and only Chamber Match in the twilight of their WWE careers.

No matter the reason, these warriors all have one thing in common: When it comes to Elimination Chamber Matches, they’re one and done … so far.
