WWE’s Elimination Chamber 2024 premium live event is now officially in the books and it served as WWE’s final big show stop on the Road To WrestleMania 40, which could shape up to be one of WWE’s biggest and best events of all time. Elimination Chamber took place in Perth, Australia at the huge Optus Stadium, making it one of WWE’s biggest “b-level” shows of all time.

The Definitive 10 Best WWE Elimination Chamber Matches, Ranked

The Elimination Chamber is one of WWE’s most dangerous gimmick matches, with plenty of amazing bouts having taken place inside the demonic structure.

It was a very short and small card, with just four matches on the main card (and one on the pre-show) which makes it among the very smallest match cards of all time in terms of WWE PPVs. It was certainly a night of ups and downs, but as ever with WWE’s shows since Triple H took over, the match quality was still pretty good. TheSportster’s rating system will determine which of the matches at Elimination Chamber 2024 were the best of the best though.

1.5/2.5

There was nothing inherently wrong with this match, but there was really nothing worth noting aside from the crowd’s slightly elevated interest in the hometown name Indi Hartwell. Even then though, the Australian crowd still weren’t too loud for Hartwell, not compared to the likes of Grayson Waller and Rhea Ripley later on in the night. The offense offered out by the likes of Hartwell and Candice LeRae wasn’t anything special though in truth, with everything kept incredibly simple.


Asuka & Kairi Sane played their roles well, but they didn’t necessarily add too much to the match, simply acting as typical heels with some extended heat segments. The match ended with a whimper, with the pair just hitting their finisher without too much excitement. WWE didn’t even linger too much on the post-match ovation for Hartwell. It was short, fine, but nothing special.

4 Becky Lynch Vs. Liv Morgan Vs. Naomi Vs. Raquel Rodriguez Vs. Tiffany Stratton Vs. Bianca Belair (Elimination Chamber)

Overall Rating From TheSportster: 6.75/10

Storytelling

This wasn’t the cleanest of Elimination Chamber matches, but it had some good moments for sure. Becky Lynch was on fire during this, Tiffany Stratton introduced herself well to the main roster with some impressive moments and a big dive from atop a pod, Raquel Rodriguez was presented as a strong monster, Bianca Belair was her usual top class self, and Liv Morgan put in a decent showing. It must be said though that the use of Naomi left a lot to be desired, being thrown out of the match quite early on without showcasing too much.

WWE Royal Rumble 2024: Every Match Ranked From Worst To Best

Cody Rhodes and Bayley are heading to WrestleMania 40, but how did their respective wins rank among the 2024 Royal Rumble matches?

The predictable nature of the match was a little bit jarring in truth, and it could be noticed within the audience that there was no fear of Becky Lynch being eliminated. As noted, some of the action was a little bit clunky, but it still acted as a serviceable match to help build to WrestleMania where Lynch will take on Rhea Ripley.

3 Rhea Ripley Vs. Nia Jax (WWE Women’s World Championship)

Overall Rating From TheSportster: 6.75/10


Storytelling

1.5/2.5

Technical Ability

This was decent for what it was. Nia Jax marched around the ring as the dominant heel, hitting power moves and Ripley that looked like they genuinely hurt, and Ripley played the underdog babyface role in front of her friends, family, and home country crowd. It was a pretty typical heel vs. babyface match with the result never truly in doubt.

There could have arguably been more of a unique structure and some near-falls, but it still did its job, even if it wasn’t perhaps the most fitting match for the main event of a WWE PLE. They added some good moments such as a massive superplex, an announce table spot, and Ripley managing to hoist Jax up for her Riptide finisher. The crowd did certainly add to the occasion, making it feel bigger than it would on another night.


2 The Judgment Day (Finn Balor & Damian Priest) Vs. New Catch Republic (Tyler Bate & Pete Dunne) (Undisputed WWE Tag Team Championships)

Overall Rating From TheSportster: 7.25/10

Storytelling

1.5/2.5

Technical Ability

2.25/2.5

Character Work/Psychology

1.75/2.5

Crowd Reaction

1.75/2.5

Despite being fairly new to the main roster as a team, Tyler Bate & Pete Dunne rose to the occasion in their first WWE PPV match as a duo, acting as strong opponents to the Judgment Day team of Finn Balor & Damian Priest. The heels spent most of the match in control, with perhaps arguably too-long segments of extended heat on their babyface opponents, but they played up to the crowd well.

The Ladder Match is one of wrestling’s most popular gimmicks, with some of WWE’s biggest stars having put on quite a few classics!

Dunne & Bate showed their talents and fire as underdogs, with some great sequences, fluid wrestling, and hard-hitting moves. Bate in particular impressed, showcasing his great strength despite his size disadvantage. On paper, the match perhaps wasn’t up to scratch for a WWE PLE, but it ultimately delivered. The crowd could have maybe been more into it, showing some disconnect to the newly formed main roster duo, but it wasn’t jarring by any means.

1 Logan Paul Vs. Kevin Owens Vs. Randy Orton Vs. Drew McIntyre Vs. LA Knight Vs. Bobby Lashley (Elimination Chamber)

Overall Rating From TheSportster: 8/10

Storytelling

2.25/2.5

Crowd Reaction

1.75/2.5


Was this the most exciting or hard-hitting Elimination Chamber match of all time? No. But it did a great job of building towards WrestleMania 40 and it was absolutely fantastic from a storytelling perspective. Drew McIntyre was presented as a dominant force and his victory ensured that he looked strong. Randy Orton, whether it be fighting through real pain or world class selling, added so much to the final portion, looking like a valiant performer.

Several stories progressed in this match, with Logan Paul and Kevin Owens once again clashing, Paul costing Orton the match with brass knuckles, and AJ Styles interfering to cost LA Knight’s chance at WrestleMania. The action was very well executed, the big spots were built to well, especially with Bobby Lashley crashing his opponents through the pods.
