Roman Reigns and The Miz booked their places in the Elimination Chamber with qualifying victories on this week's Raw.
Reigns secured his spot in the six-way match - the winner of which will face Brock Lesnar for his Universal title at WrestleMania - by defeating Bray Wyatt in a back-and-forth match which ended when Reigns kicked out of a pin after a Sister Abigail and finished things with a Spear.
Things went from bad to worse for Wyatt after the match too, when he was attacked by Matt Hardy and given a Twist of Fate to add to his troubles.
The Miz's place in the Chamber came at the expense of Apollo Crews, who dominated their match but ultimately came up short.
Crews hit Miz with two Shooting Star Presses and he kicked out of pin attempts after both before catching Crews in mid-air and landing him groin-first on the top rope to swing the match momentum his way.
A Skull-Crushing Finale later, and Miz was collecting a three-count and a place in the Chamber.
Later in the show, Elias secured a significant Chamber advantage for himself, beating John Cena and Braun Strowman in a triple threat match to earn the coveted number six entry in the match.
Women's Chamber line-up confirmed
Kurt Angle revealed the five competitors for the women's Elimination Chamber match who will challenge Alexa Bliss for the Raw women's title.
Bayley, Sasha Banks, Mickie James and the Absolution duo of Mandy Rose and Sonya Deville will be the quintet of challengers to Bliss' gold.
Nia Jax, notably, is not in the match but will face Asuka in a singles contest at the Chamber pay-per-view and if she wins, will be added to the title bout chosen by Asuka at WrestleMania.
The Bar retain against Reigns & Rollins
With Jason Jordan not medically cleared to compete, Roman Reigns was drafted in alongside Seth Rollins in a rematch of sorts for the Raw tag team titles, which were won by Sheamus and Cesaro at the Royal Rumble.
Jordan, however, could not stop himself from getting involved, and cost The Shield duo the titles when he struck both members of The Bar as they attempted to deliberately get themselves counted out.
Rollins and Reigns were furious, and Jordan was sent home by his father and Raw general manager, Kurt Angle.
WWE Monday Night Raw is repeated in full at 9pm every Tuesday on Sky Sports Arena.
