Elimination Chamber is a professional wrestling pay-per-view (PPV) event, produced by WWE, a professional wrestling promotion based in Connecticut. The event was created in 2011, with its inaugural event taking place on February 20, 2011.
Elimination Chamber is a pay-per-view (PPV) event consisting of a main event and undercard that features championship matches and other various matches. The concept of the show was that the two main event matches were contested inside the Elimination Chamber; one of these matches typically featured the WWE Championship being defended, while the other was usually contested for the World Heavyweight Championship (the two titles were unified in January 2016). In 2015, the event was replaced by Fastlane in the February pay-per-view slot. The event returned in 2021 as a SmackDown branded event.
Elimination Chamber is known in Germany as No Escape (German: Kein Entkommen), to avoid any reminder of the gas chambers used during the Holocaust.
