The first-ever seven-man Elimination Chamber started off slowly, as Miz, Seth Rollins and Finn Balor took their time. It picked up somewhat when John Cena and Roman Reigns entered the fray, but the crowd still seemed a bit off. It wasn't until Braun Strowman entered the match that the crowd came alive, and Strowman gave them every reason. He was a frenzied wave of destruction, destroying every competitor in the match. One by one he picked them off, even as they all ganged up against him. He kicked out of a four-man pin after a powerbomb at one point, and even Elias entering didn't slow him down. He eliminated every person (Miz, Elias, Cena, Balor, and Rollins in that order) before facing down Reigns.
