Elimination Chamber (called No Escape in Germany) is a pay-per-view event, produced every February by WWE until 2014 then May in 2015. The event was created in 2010, with its inaugural event taking place on February 21, 2010, replacing WWE No Way Out. The concept of the show is that the two main event matches are contested inside the Elimination Chamber; one of these matches typically features the WWE Championship being defended, while the other is usually contested for the World Heavyweight Championship The first Elimination Chamber event took place on February 21, 2010 and aired live on PPV. The event's name was selected after WWE allowed fans to provide input via a survey on their official website and was chosen over Heavy Metal, Battle Chamber, Chamber of Conflict, and the original No Way Out name. Since its origin, each event has been held in an indoor arena, with all taking place in the United States. In 2015, the event was replaced by WWE Fastlane in the February pay-per-view slot. However, the 2015 event was later announced to be streamed exclusively on the WWE Network in the United States on May 31 and will be also available on PPV elsewhere. WWE also confirmed that the newly vacant WWE Intercontinental Championship will be decided inside the Elimination Chamber.
Because of German laws regarding Nazi imagery, and the name "Elimination Chamber" having a reference similar to death camps, the pay-per-view was called "No Escape" there.
