Dave Meltzer is reporting that WWE is looking at changing the name of the Elimination Chamber structure.

Meltzer tweeted, “WWE is looking at rebranding the Elimination Chamber the ‘WrestleMania Chamber.’ Not official until it’s announced.”

It was reported this week that WWE planned to use the structure for their return to Saudi Arabia next month but there are negative connotations with the phrase in certain parts of the world.

In Germany, the Elimination Chamber pay-per-view events are referred to as “No Escape,” because the company wanted to avoid connotations related to the gas chambers used in the Holocaust during World War II.

Nothing is confirmed until it’s announced and WWE has not said why they are looking at changing the name but the reasons mentioned above may explain why they are looking at calling the structure the “WrestleMania Chamber.” WWE has not yet officially announced the date for their return to Saudi Arabia.

Really odd name if that's what they end up going with. I figured they'd just call it the Steel Asylum or something.

Doesn't really matter regardless I guess.

Interesting… it makes sence in a way as the winners of the match goes to WM possibly headlining it.

Usually the winner becomes either the new Champ and headlines mania or the winner just like the RR gets to challenge for the title.

They should perhaps make the EC a RR type of match where the winner gets to challenge the champion who have not already been challenged by the RR winner.

This way the RR is still more prestigious as the winner gets to pick his opponent while the EC is the last chance for someone else to challenge the left over champ .

It a poor name. Steel Asylum would be decent but i guess they'd then have a negative connection to mental health? Swear it a never ending pit once you try not offending anyone lol

The gimmick died the moment they re-designed the structure and put mats on the floors level with the ring mat. Oh no, he took a bump just like in a regular match, except now it's actually less devastating because he's falling on level ground as opposed to the arena floor! Oh, the humanity!

The Chamber
Danger Chamber
Chamber Danger

It's not hard to come up with something that doesn't have "WrestleMania" slapped in front of it. It's the only structure that WWE calls a "chamber". Everything else is labeled a "cage". So the name doesn't have to be fancy.
