WWE Elimination Chamber, now in its 11th edition, will be held at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg, Florida, on February 21. The main event will feature five wrestlers attempting to take the WWE Title from Drew McIntyre.

Matches in the “Elimination Chamber” start with two people and, after five minutes, an additional fighter joins the match until one winner survives in the end. This year’s edition of the Elimination Chamber will include the WWE’s ThunderDome, where fans can be part of the event’s virtual audience.

Sunday’s action will include the main Elimination Chamber match featuring Drew McIntyre, Randy Orton, Jeff Hardy, Sheamus, AJ Styles, and Kofi Kingston. A second Elimination Chamber match with Kevin Owens, Daniel Bryan, Cesaro, Jey Uso, Sami Zayn, and King Corbin will also be held.

Outside of the Elimination Chamber, the event will include the Raw Women’s Championship, featuring defending champion wrestler Asuka facing off against Lacey Evans. Fans can also catch a Triple Threat match between champion Bobby Lashley, Riddle, and Keith Lee.

Here’s how you can get started with WWE Network so you don’t miss any of the action.

How to watch WWE Elimination Chamber 

WWE Network will stream the WWE Elimination Chamber on February 21. The service costs $10 a month for access to the match and all of the platform’s content. A pre-show starts at 6 p.m. ET and the main event begins at 7 p.m. ET. The fight will also be available as a pay-per-view (PPV) match through select cable providers, including Xfinity.

The WWE Network streaming service airs live pay-per-view events like WWE’s WrestleMania, along with a catalog of past matches from the likes of World Championship Wrestling and Extreme Championship Wrestling. There’s also other wrestling programs, including documentaries and original shows, as well as replays of “Raw” and “Friday Night SmackDown.” 

One of the drawbacks of WWE Network, however, is that live “Raw” and “SmackDown” matches don’t air on the streaming service. You can watch matches from “Raw” and “SmackDown” live as they air on USA Network and Fox, respectively. Those channels are available on Sling TV, FuboTV, and Hulu + Live TV.

WWE Network will merge with Peacock on March 18

WWE Elimination Chamber will be the last WWE PPV event before WWE Network becomes a part of the Peacock streaming service.

Starting March 18, all WWE Network content will make the jump to Peacock in the US, including upcoming PPV events. To watch WWE Network content on Peacock you’ll need Peacock Premium ($5 a month) or Peacock Premium Plus ($10 a month). If you’re a Comcast Xfinity X1, Flex, or Cox Contour subscriber, Peacock Premium is already included with your cable package for free.

In addition to WWE programs, Peacock already includes a growing collection of NBC and Universal shows and movies. The library features a number of popular sitcoms, like “Modern Family” and  “The Office.” You can also catch up on episodes of new NBC shows, as well as critically acclaimed movies like “Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind.” 

It’s unclear what the move to Peacock will mean for current WWE Network subscribers, but it’s expected that WWE Network memberships will somehow transition to Peacock. The streaming service said it will announce more about the move sometime in March.
