WWE Elimination Chamber
Bigger, stronger, better. That’s what the WWE Universe was screaming about as the brand-new, redesigned Elimination Chamber was flown in during the much-anticipated WWE Elimination Chamber event on the Road to Wrestlemania. The new chamber was a complete surprise to the WWE Universe until that moment, and team ATOMIC was psyched to build it.
The ATOMIC Set Construction team rocked it as they began drafting the blueprints of the structure just 3 weeks before the televised event. Weighing in at an impressive 18,000 pounds, the bad-ass chamber had a total rigging tensile strength of 1.28 million pounds. Our team cut and wove an extraordinary one mile of chain that included 16,000 individually hand woven connections to create the walls that the WWE Superstars climbed, jumped on and pinned each other against. Standing at an enormous 32’ wide x 23’ tall, the new shape imitated a more open, boxed shape which allowed the cameras to enter the chamber better so that the WWE Superstars became more visible to the over 2.6 million people tuning in for the pay per view event. With a custom logo on the top of the structure and redesigned pod entrances to the chamber, there is no doubt that every single inch of the structure was heavily thought through with full attention to detail so that the chamber can be used for years to come. Teched at our brand-new Rock Lititz Pod 2 location, Team ATOMIC had the ability to put every part and piece together as the structure was built to ensure the best possible quality with ease at load-in.
Overall, it was a great opportunity being involved with the big surprise to the WWE Universe! Special thanks to the WWE Team for including Team ATOMIC on this super cool build!
