Which tag team has the advantage in the Elimination Chamber Match?
On May 31, exclusively on the award-winning WWE Network in the United States, history will be made when The New Day, Tyson Kidd & Cesaro, Los Matadores, Lucha Dragons, The Prime Time Players and The Ascension compete in the first WWE Tag Team Championship Elimination Chamber Match. We know there will be chaos. We know there will be non-stop action. We know there will be Superstars strewn around 10 tons of steel. But, which duo will have the advantage going into this unique contest? And who will be the underdogs?
On the surface, it would seem the high-flying teams of Los Matadores and Lucha Dragons would be at the biggest disadvantage. After all, they can only soar so high when trapped inside the inescapable Chamber. However, there is history to suggest that the pairings of Diego & Fernando and Kalisto & Sin Cara may be able to inflict even more damage with their aerial attacks inside the Elimination Chamber. Who can forget RVD’s vicious Five-Star Frog Splash on Triple H in the very first Elimination Chamber Match at Survivor Series 2002?
Then you have The Ascension. These guys may not have the experience of some of the other teams in this bout, but their size and strength could certainly be used as an advantage. If you think a body slam on the steel hurts, imagine when it’s coming from Viktor & Konnor. Can these intense young competitors power their way past the competition at Elimination Chamber?
This leaves The New Day, Kidd & Cesaro and The Prime Time Players, who possess a blend of speed and strength. Will this unique combination be an advantage or disadvantage for these tag teams? One thing that could definitely help both teams is that fact that they have the only two guys – The Dreadlocked Dynamo and The Swiss Superman – with previous experience competing inside the Elimination Chamber.
There also is the wildcard of who from The New Day will be competing inside the Chamber? You can be sure the championship trio will try their best to utilize all their talents on May 31, but not even these positive Superstars can will their way past the Elimination Chamber’s steel borders. How will Big E, Kofi Kingston & Xavier Woods respond to their steel surroundings?
Don’t miss the WWE Tag Team Championship Elimination Chamber Match, live on WWE Network, on Sunday, May 31, to see which tag team proves to be the most at home inside WWE’s playground of pain.
