From the Archives: Elimination Chamber from Survivor Series 2002

This Sunday marks the 17th Elimination Chamber match in WWE history. Seventeen. The Chamber still feels so new to me, and yet the first one was held a little over 11 years ago at Survivor Series in 2002. This match is famous for a few reasons. First, Rob van Dam crushed Triple H's larynx on a Five Star Frogsplash from the top of one of the pods, marking the most useful RVD has ever been in his career. Second, the match saw Shawn Michaels win his first and only top Championship after his return from near-career-ending back injury. Enjoy!
