Randy Orton To Be Last Entrant In WWE Title Elimination Chamber Match


As noted, WWE announced on Tuesday night's WWE Elimination Chamber 2019 "go-home" edition of SmackDown Live that Mustafa Ali has been pulled from Sunday's WWE Championship Elimination Chamber Match, and replaced by Kofi Kingston.

Additionally, The New Day member took Ali's spot in the Gauntlet Match to determine the last entrant, and thus the Superstar with the greatest advantage. The Gauntlet included all of the scheduled participants in Sunday's match, which includes: Kingston, Daniel Bryan, A.J. Styles, Randy Orton, Jeff Hardy and Samoa Joe.

Kingston ended up being dubbed SmackDown Live's "Marathon Man" after nearly going through the entire tournament, as he picked up wins over Bryan, Hardy and Joe before losing to Styles.

Styles would go on to lose to Randy Orton, who had the last entrant advantage in the Gauntlet match, showing its' effectiveness by easily coming in fresh and winning the last and most important fall in the Gauntlet Match series.

With the win, "The Viper" will go into Sunday's WWE Championship Elimination Chamber Match as the sixth and final entrant.
