Rhea Ripley retains women’s World Title in tough fight

Nia Jax did everything possible to win this battle but fell just short.

She was physical early and humiliated the hometown hero by rubbing her bottom in her face.

Jax continued to rile up the Australian crowd and even attempted a stretch muffler submission.

However, the champion managed to gradually flip the momentum. 

She knocked off her opponent as she scaled to the top rope, before scaling the ring herself and executing a missile drop kick.

Jax found some more energy, though, unleashing a big Samoan drop on Ripley.

The reigning champ turned the tides again by tossing Jax out of the ring and prepared to dump her onto the announcers’ table. 

Instead, she was the one Samoan dropped onto the table and then elbowed.

Once the action returned to the inside of the ring, Jax sat on her opponent, but Ripley magically kicked out.

The pair then tussled on the top rope before the reigning champ slammed Jax with serious aggression.

She then executed her famous Riptide move to retain her title.

A great result for Aussie fans in the stadium to enjoy in what was a topsy-turvy and exhausting battle.

Drew McIntyre victorious in controversial end to men’s Elimination Chamber

Drew McIntyre and LA Knight faced off in the Chamber to start.

LA Knight executed a big jump and elbow before slamming his opponent into a pod.

Once Kevin Owens was introduced, he didn’t waste any time and just started swinging.

He choke-slammed LA Knight before frog-slamming McIntyre.

Bobby Lashley was in next, and he immediately clashed with McIntyre, picking him up, slamming him and nearly securing the elimination.

The Perth crowd erupted when Randy Orton entered the ring. He executed a big clothesline but was hurt after a collision outside the ring.

Boos rang around Optus Stadium as Logan Paul geared up to enter, but he was given a rude welcome by Owens, who ran straight into his pod and smashed him about.

Paul fought back and slammed Owen into the fence, followed by some big uppercuts.

It was then Lashley’s turn to cause some damage, slamming Owens and Paul through separate pods.

Will all six competitors down on the ground, it was clear this was all about survival.

First elimination: Bobby Lashley

Lashley suffered a huge kick to the head from McIntyre.

Second elimination: LA Knight

AJ Styles then came out of nowhere and started smashing around with a chair before executing a clasp move on LA Knight.

As he lay on the ground, McIntyre reached over, put his arm on him, and secured the elimination. 

Third elimination: Kevin Owens

Owens went back to fight Paul again, but amid the kerfuffle, was RKO’d by Orton.

Fourth elimination: Logan Paul

Orton and McIntyre exchanged blows, and the latter was stunned when Paul slammed him from the top rope.

Paul then got his brass knuckles out and egged the crowd on.

He was stunned, however, when Orton executed another RKO and secured the elimination.

Fifth elimination: Randy Orton

Orton was then driven into the centre of the ring by McIntyre and appeared to be in serious pain.

He eventually got to his feet and RKO’d McIntyre, and appeared moments away from securing victory.

However, Paul returned and punched Orton with his brass knuckles.

McIntyre then leaned over to trap Orton and win the Elimination Chamber battle.

A controversial ending, but a highly entertaining and creative match.

Grade: A

The Judgement Day win physical Undisputed WWE Tag Team title battle

Pete Dunne and Tyler Bate flew out of the gates as they looked to snatch the title.

Bate executed a comical spinning move on Finn Balor but didn’t quite achieve the desired result.

Dom Mysterio – who wasn’t officially part of the fight – appeared to interfere midway through, which resulted in him being thrown out of the stadium by the referee.

The fight continued to play out in a physical nature, with neither duo able to take control.

The challengers teamed up on Balor and drove him to the ground, but it was ultimately broken up by Damian Priest.

Balor declared “it’s over” as Priest came in to attempt to finish things up, but the opposing duo hit him with a double punch, and nearly trapped him.

Priest was eventually able to exert his power though, putting Dunne and Bate on their backsides with a double choke slam.

Balor then flew in from the top rope to pin Dunne down and ensure The Judgement Day retained their title.

Grade: B-

Becky Lynch survives women’s Elimination Chamber match

Naomi and Becky Lynch began proceedings in this Elimination Chamber but didn’t exchange many early blows.

Once Tiffany Stratton emerged from her pod, the match became a whole lot more interesting. She was full of energy, highlighted by a double boot kick.

Lynch was nearly eliminated by Stratton three times but managed to survive.

Liv Morgan was the next fighter introduced and came flying out, exhibiting her rough and tough style.

She slammed Stratton between two sets of pods before attempting to submit her on the fence.

First elimination: Naomi

Naomi flew off the top rope but Stratton avoided contact before eliminating her competitor.

Raquel Rodriguez was then brought into the action and wasted no time showing off her power, smashing Stratton into the fence.

The fight mellowed out a little before Bianca Belair was introduced as the final fighter.

She targeted Stratton straight away, followed by a big vertical suplex move on Lynch.

Belair continued her rampage by nearly eliminating Rodriguez.

Second elimination: Tiffany Stratton

Moments after launching herself from the top of the pod and taking out three competitors, Stratton was pinned down by Morgan.

Third elimination: Raquel Rodriguez

Belair’s energy saw her eliminate Rodriguez after quickly pinning her down.

However, she was caught off guard by Morgan, who slammed her into a pod.

The momentum shifted again though when Lynch took out Morgan and Belair simultaneously and executed a missile drop-kick.

Fourth and fifth eliminations: Bianca Belair and Liv Morgan

Morgan pinned Belair to eliminate her and seemingly take control of the battle, but Lynch swooped in from behind to eliminate Morgan.

A great example of awareness and experience.

Lynch will now fight for the women’s title at Wrestlemania.

An engaging Elimination Chamber with plenty of ebbs and flows.

The Kabuki Warriors retain Women’s Tag Team title

Indi Hartwell – alongside Candice LeRae – put on a show in her home country, but couldn’t get the win against the reigning champions.

The Kabuki Warriors (Asuka & Kairi Sane) were given a scare early by the local talent and were undeniably on the back foot.

Hartwell took on the duo by herself and gave 50,000+ Aussies in attendance something to cheer for.

However, the champs proved why they’re the holders, craftily surviving and flipping the momentum to retain the Women’s Tag Team title.
