As the WWE gears up for the upcoming Elimination Chamber event, wrestling fans are buzzing with excitement. This unforgiving steel structure has been the battleground for some of the most extreme matches in WWE history, etching unforgettable moments into the annals of sports entertainment. From the Ruthless Aggression Era to the PG Era and beyond, Elimination Chamber matches have showcased the talents of wrestling’s finest.
Yet, amidst the illustrious list of competitors who have entered the Chamber, there remain some notable superstars who have never stepped foot inside this demonic structure.
Let’s explore five popular wrestlers who have surprisingly never competed in an Elimination Chamber match:
5. Shelton Benjamin
Shelton Benjamin is widely regarded as one of the most gifted athletes to ever step foot in a WWE ring. Known for his incredible agility and technical prowess, Benjamin quickly made a name for himself in WWE during the Ruthless Aggression Era.
Despite capturing multiple championships and thrilling fans with his athleticism, Benjamin has never had the opportunity to showcase his skills in an Elimination Chamber match. His absence from this intense battleground is a disappointment for fans who appreciate his contributions to the sport.
4. Matt Hardy
Matt Hardy along with his brother Jeff, formed one of the most iconic tag teams in WWE history, The Hardy Boyz. Known for their high-flying antics and daredevil stunts, the Hardy Boyz revolutionized tag team wrestling in the early 2000s.
While Jeff has had the opportunity to compete in Elimination Chamber matches, Matt has never stepped foot inside the steel structure. Despite his success as a tag team wrestler and later as a singles competitor, Matt’s absence from the Elimination Chamber remains a notable gap in his career.
3. Eddie Guerrero
Eddie Guerrero was a beloved figure in the world of professional wrestling, known for his magnetic personality and unparalleled in-ring talent. Rising to prominence in the late 1990s and early 2000s, Guerrero captured the hearts of fans with his “Lie, Cheat, and Steal” mantra.
Despite his incredible popularity and numerous championship reigns, Guerrero tragically passed away in 2005 before he had the chance to compete in an Elimination Chamber match. His absence from this intense battleground is deeply felt by fans who remember his contributions to the sport.
2. Shinsuke Nakamura
Shinsuke Nakamura is a versatile performer who excels both as a heel and a babyface, making him a valuable asset for WWE in the multi-participant matches. Despite not always being pushed to the top tier, Nakamura enjoys a strong following among fans who believe in his abilities.
His distinctive hard-hitting strikes and strong style would be well-suited for a Chamber match, allowing him to showcase his unique skills and further solidify his place in the WWE roster. It’s somewhat surprising that Nakamura hasn’t yet participated in such a match, given how well his style aligns with the intensity and brutality of the Chamber environment.
1. The Rock
Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson is perhaps one of the most recognizable faces in both the wrestling and entertainment industries. Starting his career in WWE in the mid-1990s, The Rock quickly became a fan favorite with his electrifying charisma and mic skills. Transitioning into Hollywood, he achieved massive success as a leading actor while still maintaining his ties to WWE.
Despite his legendary status and numerous championship reigns, The Rock has never participated in an Elimination Chamber match, leaving fans to speculate on what could have been a monumental clash inside the steel structure.
