Elias def. "Woken" Matt Hardy to qualify for the Men's Elimination Chamber Match
“Woken” Matt Hardy and Bray Wyatt briefly joined forces during the Men’s Royal Rumble Match to cancel Rusev Day before eliminating each other, but their rivalry does not appear to be ending in a stalemate.
The Reaper of Souls cost The Woken One the chance to compete in the Men’s Elimination Chamber Match, handing the honor instead to Elias, whose attack of The Woken One’s shoulder led to a spirited rally from the former Raw Tag Team Champion. Wyatt’s gruesome imagery flashed across the TitanTron right as Hardy was commencing the deletion process and, with Matt distracted, Elias struck from behind and executed Drift Away to punch his ticket. Wyatt himself appeared on the TitanTron after the pinfall, cackling uncontrollably at Hardy’s misfortune.
