Elimination Chamber News: Absolution Declare, Shane McMahon & Miz Get Contenders

Shane McMahon and The Miz have their first tag team contenders.

The new Smackdown Live Tag Team Champions Shane McMahon and The Miz came out to the ring for their celebration party this week, and were subsequently joined by The Miz's father, who declared his pride for his son. The celebration met a rather abrupt end, however, when Shane McMahon announced they would determine new top contenders for their titles immediately.

The Usos will look to become six-time WWE Tag Team champions after emerging victorious in a four-team elimination tag match that also featured Heavy Machinery, The Bar and The New Day.

The match saw New Day eliminated first by Heavy Machinery's Compactor finish. They would be eliminated themselves by The Bar, who in turn were quickly disposed of by The Usos.

Elsewhere, the Absolution duo of Sonya Deville and Mandy Rose "declared' for the WWE Women's Tag Team Title Elimination Chamber match. Teams on Raw have been forced to qualify for the match up to this point.
