UFC Fighters and other personnel attended WWE’s Elimination Chamber Pay-Per-View in disguise.
Tonight, WWE held their annual Elimination Chamber PPV at the T-Mobile Arena in the Las Vegas Valley, in Paradise, Nevada. A Seven-Man Elimination Chamber Match, won later by Roman Reigns, headlined the event. Former UFC Fighter Ronda Rousey officially signed her contract with WWE’s Monday Night RAW brand & got involved in an altercation with Triple H & Stephanie McMahon, that ended with Rousey putting The King of Kings through a wooden table. Also, the WWE held their first-ever Women’s Elimination Chamber Match, which was won by Alexa Bliss.
UFC Fighters Cain Velasquez, Daniel Cormier & Michael Chiesa attended Elimination Chamber alongside trainers Chirs Camacho & Rosendo Sanchez while wearing Lucha Libre styled masks. The group were present at the T-Mobile Arena to show support for fellow MMA Fighter Ronda Rousey. Michael Chiesa took a picture with Rousey backstage. Cormier, on the other hand, took to Instagram and teased joining the WWE. Rousey’s husband Travis Browne was also present in the crowd at the event.
Below are some tweets from fans who recognized the fighters at the event:

On RAW Talk, the post-Elimination Chamber Talk Show, Stephanie McMahon revealed that Rousey will be at RAW tomorrow and that necessary action will be taken against her for assaulting Triple H.
While it’s still speculation, it seems that Rousey may end up facing Stephanie McMahon at WrestleMania. But, it’s not clear if it will be a Singles Match or a Mixed Tag Team Match. If it turns out to be a Mixed Tag Team Match then either RAW General Manager Kurt Angle or WWE Alum The Rock will team-up with her to take on the team of Stephanie McMahon & Triple H.
