The Elimination Chamber is a twisted amalgamation of the Steel Cage and Hell in a Cell. Six total wrestlers start the match; Two on the mat, and four separated into "inner chambers". Every five minutes, a randomly selected wrestler is released from their inner chamber to join the fighting on the mat until all are set free. When a wrestler is pinned, they are eliminated, whittling the six down until one is the winner.
The overall chamber itself is a circular cell that surrounds the ring, but is raised high enough to be flesh with the top of the mat. The chamber has a ceiling so that wrestlers cannot climb out or escape.
