WWE are preparing to host the Elimination Chamber premium live event from Perth, Australia this weekend, with a number of high-profile stars in action.

There are currently five matches set for the card, including hometown hero Rhea Ripley taking on Nia Jax for the Women's World Championship and The Judgement Day facing Pete Dunne and Tyler Bate for the Undisputed Tag Team Championships.

It will also play host to two Elimination Chamber matches, with six men and six women competing to earn a spot - and championship matches - on the WrestleMania card.

The Chamber matches will take place 22 years on from the first kind of the match, which was held at Survivor Series in 2002 and saw Triple H defend his World Heavyweight Championship.

But where are the six men that competed in the match now? Mail Sport dives into their careers, and what they are up to in the present day.

Rob van Dam

Rob van Dam is one of the most-loved WWE stars of all time, winning fans over with his high-flying abilities, enthusiastic persona and legendary catchphrase.

He won a plethora of titles in his career in the company, including the WWE Championship, ECW Championship and Money in the Bank.

He made rare appearances for the promotion until April 2023, most recently appearing to announce draft picks for both RAW and SmackDown. 

Nowadays, though, he can be seen semi-regularly in rival company AEW, and is yet to hang up his boots.

Booker T

The second man eliminated, after Van Dam, was Booker T.

Perhaps most famous for his 'King Booker' gimmick after winning the King of the Ring competition in 2006.

A Hall of Famer, he called it a day in around 2012, but continued to wrestle on occasion - most recently entering the 2023 Royal Rumble before being eliminated by Gunther.

He's held various out-of-ring roles in the company for over a decade, from general manager to commentator, and is currently a commentator on NXT alongside Vic Joseph.
