Results:Regaining the throne
SEATTLE – Just as he did at Now Way Out in 2008, Triple H outlasted five other Superstars to emerge victorious from the Elimination Chamber. The win earned him Edge’s WWE Championship and made The Game a 13-time World Champion.
To get the win, The Game pinned Undertaker after a hard-hitting Pedigree in the brutal encounter that found both Superstars the final contestants battling for Edge's title.
But, regaining gold was no easy task. The Cerebral Assassin had to do battle with SmackDown’s elite Superstars who all wanted gold, including Undertaker, Big Show, Vladimir Kozlov and Jeff Hardy. Surprisingly, The Rated-R Superstar was eliminated early in the match by Hardy.
Edge and Hardy were the first combatants to do battle. In less than five minutes, Hardy pinned the Rated-R Superstar and immediately made it known – the WWE Championship was there for the taking. (Later in the night, the Ultimate Opportunist regained gold as a surprise entrant in the World Heavyweight Championship Elimination Chamber Match. Results)
The undefeated Kozlov was the next to enter the fray, followed by Big Show, Triple H and finally Undertaker.
In a war of SmackDown’s big men, Kozlov was the first to go down at the hands of The Phenom. Next, The Game took out Big Show after Hardy left The World’s Largest Athlete stunned from a Swanton Bomb. Then, The Deadman downed Hardy with a Tombstone.
With the four Superstars eliminated, The Cerebral Assassin and The Phenom squared off for gold. After a brutal back-and-forth struggle, it was The Game who reigned supreme.
As the Road to WrestleMania continues, The King of Kings awaits who will look to try to knock him from his throne.
