WWE Elimination Chamber cuts to black screen after Dominik Mysterio moment

WWE Elimination Chamber cuts to black screen after Dominik Mysterio moment

The screen briefly went black.

The WWE Elimination Chamber broadcast briefly turned black during the men's tag team title match - and fans think they've worked out the hilarious reason why.

The team of Finn Balor and Damian Priest were defending their titles against the British duo of Pete Dunne and Tyler Bate in Perth, Australia.

Balor and Priest were accompanied by their Judgment Day stablemate Dominik Mysterio - who was practically booed out of the building when he took to the mic before the match got underway.

During a pinfall attempt from Dunne, Mysterio intervened and placed Balor's leg under the ropes. He did so away from the gaze of the referee, meaning 'Dirty Dom' wasn't disqualified.

Naturally, the fans weren't happy, and made their feelings known towards Mysterio.

But after a few seconds, he was then kicked out of the match by the referee, which changed the atmosphere inside the Optus Stadium somewhat.

The screen then briefly cut to black for a few seconds, leaving fans confused.

According to X (Twitter) account @FadeAwayMedia, WWE were forced to cut the video because fans were performing gestures towards Mysterio in the front row.

WWE are yet to confirm the exact reason behind the screen cutting out - although either way, the scenes in Australia are yet more evidence of why Mysterio is considered one of the top heels in the business today.

Four of the five members of Judgment Day are in Perth, with Women's World Champion and home hero Rhea Ripley defending her title against Nia Jax - who was also born in Australia - as part of the show's main event later on in the night.

Cody Rhodes and Seth Rollins are also in Perth to take part in the 'Grayson Waller Effect' talk show, before the men's Elimination Chamber match takes place as the pre-main event.
