WWE Reveals Women's Elimination Chamber Participants, Asuka vs. Nia Jax Match With Big Ramifications

One half of WWE's female WrestleMania main event already features Asuka, but her opponent will be determined at this month's Elimination Chamber -- well, maybe.

WWE announced the competitors for the first-ever women's bout on the February 5 episode of WWE Raw. WWE Raw Women's Champion Alexa Bliss was already figured into the match, as she'll be defending her championship on television for the first time in nearly four months in the match.

Former Raw Women's Champion Bayley, Mandy Rose, former WWE Women's Champion Mickie James, Sonya Deville and former WWE Raw Women's Champion Sasha Banks were all announced as competitors for the first ever WWE Women's Elimination Chamber match.

Asuka has her title match guaranteed for WrestleMania, but has yet to make her opponent known. She was given an opponent at WWE Elimination Chamber, however. Asuka will take on Nia Jax at the show, with Nia Jax gaining a spot in the WrestleMania women's title match if she wins. 

WWE Elimination Chamber takes place February 25 from the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. Fightful.com will have full, live coverage of the show, including a live, post-show podcast.
