Ronda Rousey will look to defend her RAW Women’s Championship at Elimination Chamber against Ruby Riott. The event takes place Sunday, February 17th, 2019 from the Toyota Center in Houston, Texas.
Riott was the one member of the Riott Squad who Rousey did not submit on last Monday night’s RAW.
“Will the “unbreakable bond” between the nefarious faction help Riott conquer the unrelenting Rousey and forge her own path into The Showdown of the Immortals?” A WWE press release for the match reads. “Find out at WWE Elimination Chamber, Sunday, Feb. 17, at 7 ET/4 PT on the award-winning WWE Network.”

Riott Squad member, Liv Morgan, noted on Twitter that every member of their faction will have a chance at a championship at Elimination Chamber.
Almost one year & three months ago, the #RiottSquad debuted at the Toyota Center in Houston, Texas… In nine days, everything comes full circle & we all leave that same building as champions. #WWEChamber #WWEWomensTagTeamChampions #RawWomensChampion @sarahloganwwe @RubyRiottWWE pic.twitter.com/jxaSFv1MSH

The Riott Squad made their debut in the same venue the PPV will be held in.
Rousey will look to defend her title for the 8th consecutive time on WWE programming (i.e not including house shows). Since winning the title at SummerSlam, she has defended it against Alexa Bliss, Nikki Bella, Mickie James, Nia Jax, Natalya, Sasha Banks, and Bayley.
Also in Rousey news, she’s marketing a line of “Ice & Advil” T-shirts with a portion of proceeds going to charity:
