Backstage News on Plans for Next Year's Elimination Chamber; Triple H vs. Strowman

-- The next Raw brand PPV is Elimination Chamber which isn't until February 25 in Las Vegas. The plan right now is that the main event will be a multi-person title match with most or all of the key players involved. However, if Roman Reigns does not win the Royal Rumble, it could also be a match where Reigns earns his title shot for his big WrestleMania match against Brock Lesnar.

-- As has been noted, Triple H is scheduled to have two big singles matches in 2018, likely at Royal Rumble and WrestleMania. One is with Kurt Angle - which was always the plan for when WWE signed Angle - and the other is against Braun Strowman, in a match in which Triple H will likely put him over so that the company can move forward with Strowman and Reigns as the two big babyfaces after WrestleMania.
