Two title matches were held inside WWE's dreaded Elimination Chamber and both created truly memorable moments.
Daniel Bryan put his WWE Championship on the line against AJ Styles, Jeff Hardy, Randy Orton, Samoa Joe and Kofi Kingston in about full of drama, with an emotional ending.
Meanwhile, the inaugural WWE Women's Tag Team Champions were crowned earlier in the evening, as six duos competed inside the brutal steel structure.
Raw Women's Champion Ronda Rousey faced Ruby Riott, but the real story was what happened after their match, as the Road to WrestleMania burst into life.
Our man Neil Docking delivered all the action as it happened in Houston, Texas and you can relive it here now. Oh and that’s the bottom line, because Mirror Sport said so!
Goodnight wrestling fans
Well, that was an exhilarating finish to top off a good pay-per-view. The WWE Championship Elimination Chamber match took a while to get going, but eventually it matched the women’s tag titles version earlier in the evening thanks to the ability of Bryan and Kofi to tell one hell of a story.
Aside from that, the biggest talking point of the night had to be Becky Lynch destroying Ronda Rousey and Charlotte Flair with her crutches. With this build, there’s no doubt The Man is heading for the main event of WrestleMania 35.
