Bronson Reed won’t be part of Elimination Chamber: Perth (Picture: WWE)
WWE superstar Bronson Reed has been left absolutely gutted after missing out on a dream homecoming.
The Australian wrestler was expected to play a prominent role at Elimination Chamber 2024 in Perth on February 24, but the Monday Night Raw results mean unlike fellow Aussie Rhea Ripley, he’ll be watching from the sidelines.
The former NXT North American Champion has a chance to qualify for the Men’s Elimination Chamber against Bobby Lashley, but came up short.
Instead, it’s the All Mighty going onto the premium live event and Bronson has been left at a crossroads.
He tweeted after Monday’s show: ‘My whole life I dreamed of wrestling on a @WWE PLE in my home country. I’ve failed my people, myself and my family. Sorry.’
The 35-year-old wrestler reiterated how upset he is to be missing out on being part of the card in a WWE Raw Exclusive interview backstage.

‘Super disappointed. This is what I’ve dreamed about my whole life, being able to be on a WWE PLE in my home country of Australia,’ he said.
‘And I feel like I’ve let down my family, I’ve let down the fans, and I’ve let down all of Australia. Couldn’t get the job done tonight.’
When it comes to the future, Bronson is ‘at his wit’s end’, and isn’t sure how to salvage his 2024.
‘I don’t know where I go. I planned 2024 to be a big year for ‘Big’ Bronson Reed. But it’s not going to plan, so I’m just at my wit’s end, and eventually, I’m gonna snap.’

As it stands, Drew McIntyre, Randy Orton, Bobby Lashley and LA Knight have earned a spot in the men’s chamber, with Dominik Mysterio vs. Kevin Owens, and LA Knight vs. The Miz serving as the final qualifiers on SmackDown this week.
For the women’s edition, Becky Lynch, Bianca Belair and Liv Morgan have already secured their spots.
Elsewhere on the show in Perth, Bronson’s fellow Aussie Rhea Ripley will defend her Women’s World Championship against Nia Jax in a massive match for the Judgment Day’s leader and her fans.
WWE Elimination Chamber: Perth 2024 UK start time
WWE Elimination Chamber: Perth will get underway at 10am for fans in the UK, due to the time difference.
There will be a Kickoff show starting one hour earlier at 9am.
Fans in the UK can tune into the action via the WWE Network or TNT Sports Box Office, but that will all change in January 2025 when WWE programming moves across to Netflix as part of a huge $5 billion deal.
