Intro: A Daniel Bryan promo interrupted by The Miz
Daniel Bryan comes out to kick off tonight’s episode of SmackDown. He talks about how the last time he was in KeyArena, he had to retire. But he’s going to be a dad really soon. So, he’s happy about that.
The Miz’s music hits to interrupt the feel good segment. The Miz says that if Bryan is retired then he should just stay home. Miz is very confident about his role in the Elimination Chamber match. “The Hollywood A-Lister” then starts arguing with the crowd, and Baron Corbin’s music hits.
Corbin says that The Miz really needs to know how to shut up. Miz says people actually want to listen to what he says Corbin looks like he want to knock The Miz out. Daniel Bryan has no problem with that proposition.
Dean Ambrose comes out next. He says The Miz looks like a shoe. Ambrose also accuses Corbin of “stealing his motorcycle music.” Ambrose thinks that he will be the one to win the Elimination Chamber and the WWE World Championship this Sunday.
AJ Styles is the next guy to come out. Styles talks trash about every competitor in the ring. Styles has beaten all of them at least once. The crowd starts chanting for “AJ Styles,” so Styles tells them to shut him. An angry Miz interrupts AJ, yelling that he will be the one to win the Elimination Chamber.
Woah, woah, woah, woah. Daniel Bryan interrupts, and suggests a fatal four way match next!
AJ Styles vs. Dean Ambrose vs. Baron Corbin vs. The Miz
Ambrose is extremely dominant from the beginning, stunning all three competitors. But Corbin is too much of a bad ass. Corbin takes the fight to anyone he can get his hands on. Corbin cracks the flying Styles in the head with his fist. He drills Miz into the corner, but then out of nowhere, Ambrose rushes back and gains control of The Lone Wolf.
The Miz mocks Daniel Bryan, imitating and delivering Bryan’s patented kicks on Styles and Ambrose. Dean counters the final kick with a roll-up. The Miz, Styles and Ambrose must have made a dozen roll-ups on one another. Ambrose even tried to roll up Corbin. But The Lone Wolf fires back with a devastating clothesline. This match got chaotic pretty quick.
Fast forward to the end: AJ Styles tries to put away The Miz with a Phenomenal Forearm, but Maryse pulls her husband out of the ring. AJ turns around to Baron Corbin and his End of Days. This is a huge win for Corbin.

Luke Harper Promo
Luke Harper is an undisclosed dark place, surrounded by red flickering light bulbs. Harper calls himself a man with nothing to lose. He plans to eliminate The Viper this Sunday.
Nikki Bella/Natalya side-by-side interview
Both ladies will face off this Sunday, and of course they talked trashed. Nikki says Nattie is only known for being a good wrestler, and what else will she have to her name when she loses in a wrestling match to Nikki? Nattie gets personal, says that Nikki has no friends, only followers, and that Cena will leave her. While Nikki has her sister Brie’s snot-nosed kid on her lap, she’s going to wish that she has a kid, but John will never have a kid with her. Nattie says that John will eventually leave Nikki for someone prettier, smarter and better. Nattie claims that if she wasn’t married than John would be with her, not Nikki.
Apollo Crews vs. Dolph Ziggler
Zigglers runs at Apollo, but quickly eats a double dropkick. Crews looks strong and Ziggler seems overconfident. Ziggler looks like he’s about to line up Apollo for his version of the Sweet Chin Music. But Apollo rolls-up Ziggler.
Apollo Crews defeats Dolph Ziggler
Post-match: Ziggler immediately attacks Crews after the match. Dolph goes out of the ring and returns with a steel chair. He cracks Crews in the back with the chair. He’s about to strike Apollo again, but Kalisto’s music hits. Kalisto comes in like a great ball of fire. He gets the upperhand on Dolph at first, but Ziggler quickly fires back and Kalisto is strung up on the ropes. Ziggler smacks Kalisto with a chair as well. Dolph hits Apollo with another chair shot for good luck to end the segment.
Backstage: Ziggler is about to leave the arena, but General Manager Daniel Bryan catches up with him. Bryan asks Dolph if he’s going to attack his people with chairs every time he loses a match? Ziggler says he can beat both Kalisto and Crews. Bryan announces a handicap match for the Elimination Chamber pay per view: Kalisto & Apollo Crews vs. Dolph Ziggler
Duel-Contract Singing Segment for WWE Elimination Chamber (Alexa Bliss vs. Naomi; Mickie James vs. Becky Lynch)
There was a lot of trash-talking in this segment. Mickie is pissed at Becky; she feels that Lynch is trying to erase all her accomplishments and take credit for the women’s division. Becky says she’s going to smack Mickie back to the past this Sunday. Alexa calls Becky’s orange hair dye “toxic” and acts like she didn’t even notice Noami. Noami talks some trash, signs the contract and then kicks Alexa in the head from across the table. We now have an all-out brawl/cat-fight on our hands! How delightful!
Rhyno & Heath Slater, American Alpha, & Breezango vs. The Usos, The Vaudevillians, & The Ascension
The Washington crowd was really chanting for “Rhyno” throughout a lot of this match. Of course with 12 wrestlers in the ring, you can expect things to get wild. At one point, every wrestler was in the ring in a frenzied brawl. But for much of this match, I was reflecting upon how WWE really dropped the ball on The Ascension. Ironically, as I was thinking this, a member of The Ascension picked up the win.
The Ascension, The Vaudevillians, & The Usos defeat Rhyno & Heath Slater, American Alpha, & Breezango
Main Event: Randy Orton vs. John Cena
Orton & Cena are very equally-matched. Both men kicked out of each other’s finishing moves. Towards the end of the match, Cena had Orton tapping out to the STFU, but the referee was knocked out. Bray enters the ring and attacks Cena. He throws John down with with his finishing move Sister Abigail. Luke Harper comes out to even the playing field. Bray tries to play mind games on Luke, but the former Wyatt Family member isn’t having any of it. He floors Bray with a discus clothesline. Randy is about to return the favor by hitting Luke with an RKO outta nowhere, but Cena intercepts and hurls The Viper over his shoulder with an Attitude Adjustment. The champ wins again!
