Although the WrestleMania picture is far from complete it has come into better focus after Elimination Chamber: Perth. Not only do we know who will be challenging Seth Rollins and Rhea Ripley for their respective titles at WrestleMania but we also kind of know who else will be feuding at the Showcase of the Immortals.

With him costing LA Knight the Elimination Chamber match it is clear that AJ Styles and LA Knight will be heading to Mania. The same can be said for Logan Paul, Randy Orton and Kevin Owens. Owens and Paul continued to throw gasoline on the fire that is their feud in the Chamber match while United States Champion Logan Paul cost Orton the bout by just clobbering him with his trusty brass knuckles.

Despite Chamber setting the table for Mania it suffered from very predictable outcomes and that took much of the excitement out of the show.
