Drew McIntyre and LA Knight would kick off the Men's Chamber match, rematching from their bout from Friday's edition of SmackDown in the early stages of the matchup. Early on, Knight would have several spots where he would slam McIntyre's head into the pods of Kevin Owens and Logan Paul.

Kevin Owens would be entrant number three, coming in with a lot of momentum, hitting a chokeslam in dedication to a young boy he met at a Make A Wish event. After all 3 entrants trading momentum, the fourth would join the match soon after in the form of Bobby Lashley, who would head straight for Drew McIntyre, with the two big men trading blows.

Coming in at number 5, Randy Orton entered the fray, striking anyone that was moving in the matchup upon him coming out of his pod, hitting a draping rope DDT on Kevin Owens to the outside. After this, Lashley would take control of the match, spearing LA Knight. He would also attempt one on Lashley but McIntyre would take the advantage, slamming Lashley into the ring posts.

Soon after, the final entrant, Logan Paul would make his way into the Chamber, with Kevin Owens meeting him at the pod door. Lashley would later put Kevin Owens and Logan Paul through seperate pods. McIntyre would shortly after hit the Claymore on Bobby Lashley, marking the first elimination in the matchup.

AJ Styles would enter the ring as Lashley was leaving the Chamber, hitting Knight with a steel chair repeatedly, hitting a Styles Clash on a chair before being made to leave the ring by officials. McIntyre would then pin Knight to eliminate him from the matchup.

For the third elimination of the matchup, Orton would hit an RKO on Kevin Owens, pinning him shortly after to eliminate him. This would leave Logan Paul, Orton and Drew McIntyre as the final three.

Logan Paul would dig deep, leaping from the top of one of the pods late on to take McIntyre down with a crossbody, but could not capitalize with a pinfall before taking out the brass knuckles leading to an RKO from out of nowhere from Orton to Paul, eliminating Logan from the match.

Orton would go for an RKO at the end of the match, but McIntyre was able to hit a spinebuster to counter. Drew would then set up The Viper for The Claymore. However after Orton couldn't stay on his feet, Drew would try to pick him up, resulting in an RKO. Right as it looked like Orton had the match won, Logan Paul reappeared, hitting Orton with the brass knuckles. McIntyre capitalized, pinning Orton to win the Chamber.

McIntyre now earns a shot at winning a world championship in front of fans at WrestleMania, after having the moment taken away from him back at WrestleMania 36. He will face Seth Rollins at the event.
