After Raw, Kurt Angle declared the Elimination Chamber will now have seven contestants. The Elimination Chamber match will feature Seth Rollins, Finn Balor, John Cena, The Miz, Braun Strowman, Elias, and Roman Reigns. The winner will face Brock Lesnar at Wrestlemania 34 for the WWE Universal Championship. 

Also on Raw, it was determined that The Miz will be the first entrant into the Elimination Chamber. The start of Raw featured John Cena saying he needed to win Elimination Chamber in order to have a "road to Wrestlemania." The Miz interrupted and called Cena delusional for wanting to headline Wrestlemania in 2018. Cena challenged The Miz to a match with the stipulation that the loser would enter Elimination Chamber first. The Miz accepted and general manager Kurt Angle came out to make the match official.
