IN RING SEGMENT
We start the show with the leader of the Cenation, John Cena! Cena stops to say hello to the announce team, gives his salute and makes his way to the ring in traditional John Cena fashion. John Cena says that he can feel the energy because they are on the road to WrestleMania. Cena says that WrestleMania makes legends and can be the most important night in a superstar’s life. Cena says that tonight, he is out there to face the truth. And the truth is, in two weeks, he has to win the Elimination Chamber match. He says that if he doesn’t, he is not sure if he has a “road to WrestleMania”. He says that he has to survive the most unwinnable match in WWE history, only to move forward to face off against the most unbeatable champion in WWE history. John Cena says that while this sounds impossible, he’s made a career of making the impossible possible. Cena calls his shot and says that he will win Elimination Chamber, and he will go on to beat Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania!
Out comes the A-Lister, The MIz, accompanied by his Miztourage. The Miz tells John Cena that this isn’t 2013, but its 2018 and it’s the year of The Miz. Miz says that he will be the one to go one with Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania and main event the show because he is the one who belongs there and he will be the first ever Intercontinental Champion & Universal Champion.
Cena says that if he goes against Lesnar, it’s likely that it will be the last match of his career. The Miz says that he isn’t going to be like Cena and play Brock’s game, but he is instead going to be smart about it. He is going to play his game, and do things that others won’t, that others can’t, and he will do what it takes to beat Brock Lesnar. Cena says that he seems awful confident, and that he is going to challenge The Miz to a match between them two tonight. He adds a stipulation and says that the loser has to enter the Elimination Chamber at number one.
The Miz says that he is not dumb, and asks why Cena thinks that he would accept that challenge. Just then, The Miztourage attacks John Cena, knocking him out and leaving him laying. Miz says that he would accept that challenge because he is smarter than Cena. He accepts the challenge and calls for a referee, but instead Kurt Angle comes out. Kurt says that he likes the idea, and that the loser will indeed enter the Elimination Chamber at number one, but speaking of eliminations, Curtis Axel & Bo Dallas are eliminated from ringside! This match starts now!

Cena goes down to one knee, but is able to fight back up until Miz jumps on Cena’s back and locks in the hold even deeper. Cena goes back down, first to one knee, then to both. Miz is in full control, really slowing down the pace and Cena is fading. MIz lets go of the hold himself and waits for Cena to get up to hit the skull crushing finale, but Cena recovers and goes for an AA, but Miz is able to slither out, takes Cena down and locks in the figure four!

Winner: John Cena
After the match, John Cena had another John Cena heartwarming moment and hopped into the crowd to embrace a disabled child in the front row. He gave the young child his sweat band, and hopped in back in the ring. The Miz is in disbelief as he realizes that he will be entering the Elimination Chamber first. What a match!
