WWE executives were surprised to learn recently that the term “elimination chamber” refers to a toilet in at least 30 cultures worldwide.
The discovery did explain why uncomfortable-looking tourists sometimes show up at the annual Elimination Chamber pay-per-view and gesture that they need to urinate.
“We apologize for any confusion,” said a WWE press release issued this week.
“Elimination Chamber referes to a roofed, chain-link cage with six plexiglass pods, not a toilet.”
To avoid further confusion, WWE is considering changing the name of the pay-per-view — and the match that is its namesake — to something less ambiguous.
Users of the WWE smartphone app are encouraged to vote their favorite: “Satan’s Jungle Gym,” “The Evacuation Station,” or “Hell in a Round Cell.”
