The Elimination Chamber began as a match in the fall of 2002 at that year's Survivor Series event. The match was introduced in storyline form by Eric Bischoff who was serving as the RAW General Manager at the time.
Speaking of that 2002 Survivor Series match, one moment that's missing is the finish of that match which saw Shawn Michaels capture the WWE World Heavyweight Championship. Michaels had recently returned that year at SummerSlam following over four years of being retired. His victory and championship win marked the only time he held WWE's top prize during his final run with the company between 2002 and 2010.
WWE started a PPV themed after the Elimination Chamber match in 2010. Prior to that, the match appeared at various events. As of this writing, there have been 24 Elimination Chamber matches in the history of WWE (26 after next Sunday).0comments
