Renderforest Presents - WWE Elimination Chamber (2021) February 21, 2021 Streaming On WWE Network
Elimination Chamber (also known as No Escape in Germany) is an upcoming professional wrestling pay-per-view and WWE Network event produced by WWE for their Raw and SmackDown brand divisions. It is scheduled to take place on February 21, 2021, and broadcast from the WWE ThunderDome, hosted at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg, Florida. It will be the 11th event under the Elimination Chamber chronology and will also be the final event to air on the American version of the WWE Network before it merges with Peacock.
Elimination Chamber is a gimmick pay-per-view first produced by WWE in 2010. It has been produced every year since, except in 2016, and is generally held in February. The concept of the show is that one or two main event matches are contested inside the Elimination Chamber, either with championships or future opportunities at championships at stake.[1] The 2021 event will be the eleventh event under the Elimination Chamber chronology and feature wrestlers from the Raw and SmackDown brands.[2]

On January 25, 2021, WWE announced that the WWE Network would become exclusively distributed by Peacock in the United States as part of a new agreement with NBCUniversal, which airs Monday Night Raw and NXT on the USA Network. The WWE Network will become its own premium channel under Peacock, while Peacock Premium subscribers will get access at no additional cost; other countries will maintain the current separate WWE Network service distributed by the promotion itself. This new agreement will go into effect on March 18, making Elimination Chamber the final pay-per-view to air on the American version of the WWE Network before it merges under Peacock.[3][4]

Since 2011, the show has been promoted as "No Escape" in Germany as it was feared that the name "Elimination Chamber" may remind people of the gas chambers used during the Holocaust.[5][6]
As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, WWE had to present the majority of its programming for Raw and SmackDown from a behind closed doors set at the WWE Performance Center in Orlando, Florida beginning mid-March 2020,[7] although in late May, the promotion began using Performance Center trainees to serve as the live audience,[8] which was further expanded to friends and family members of the wrestlers in mid-June.[9] On August 17, WWE announced that all future shows and pay-per-views would be held at Orlando's Amway Center for the "foreseeable future," beginning with the August 21 episode of SmackDown. Furthermore, the shows now feature a new fan viewing experience called the "ThunderDome," which utilizes drones, lasers, pyro, smoke, and projections. Approximately 1,000 LED boards were installed to allow fans to virtually attend the events for free and be seen on the rows and rows of LED boards. Arena audio is also mixed with that of the virtual fans so that chants from the fans can be heard.[10][11] After their contract with the Amway Center expired, WWE relocated the ThunderDome to Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg, Florida, which began with the December 11 episode of SmackDown.[12][13]
The show will comprise matches that result from scripted storylines, where wrestlers portray heroes, villains, or less distinguishable characters in scripted events that build tension and culminate in a wrestling match or series of matches. Results are predetermined by WWE's writers on the Raw and SmackDown brands,[14][15] while storylines are produced on WWE's weekly television shows, Monday Night Raw and Friday Night SmackDown.[16]

After Sheamus was drafted to Raw in the 2020 WWE Draft, he re-established his old friendship with WWE Champion Drew McIntyre. However, on the February 1, 2021 episode of Raw, Sheamus turned on McIntyre, declaring that he was not his friend and wanted the WWE Championship. Later, McIntyre accepted Sheamus' challenge for a one-on-one match.[17] The following week, however, WWE officials Adam Pearce and Shane McMahon announced that McIntyre would defend the WWE Championship against five former WWE Champions in an Elimination Chamber match at Elimination Chamber, which included Sheamus, as well as Randy Orton, Jeff Hardy, AJ Styles, and Mr. Money in the Bank The Miz.[18]
