Arizona, Feb 12: It’s great to see the Elimination Chamber back in WWE schedule after a hiatus of two years.
Smackdown creative pulled off a tremendous job to stack the card within a span of just two weeks after Royal Rumble.
The steel structure itself is a huge attraction to the crowd and will decide the fate of the WWE championship, this year.
The Smackdown-exclusive PPV will take place at the Talking Stick resort Arena in Phoenix, Arizona. In India, no live streaming will be available, unfortunately.
The first telecast will go on the air at 6 PM on Ten 1 Network, tomorrow. The repeat telecast will take place at 9 PM on 15th February and at 2 PM on 19th February on the same network.
The prediction for the main event of the night that is the chamber match is predictable, this year since a Bray Wyatt Vs Randy Orton rivalry is on the card for Wrestlemania. Orton has won the Rumble match and hence is patiently waiting for his next opponent.
If Cena comes out of the chamber retaining his championship then Cena vs. Orton at Wrestlemania would be repetitive and WWE would not like to go in such a way.
Hence, Wyatt is clear favorite to win this one. The creative might swerve us by giving AJ Styles the win to set up an Orton vs. Styles match, as well.
There are three women’s matches on the card which indicates that how well Smackdown is utilizing their female talents.
At the Royal Rumble kick-off show, the babyface team picked up the win and hence tonight should belong to the heels.
So, Natalya will pick up a win against Nikki Bella to set up an injury storyline for the Bella Queen which might turn out to be a retirement angle at Wrestlemania, as well.
Mickie James should pick up a win with some dirty tricks over Becky Lynch but the rivalry should continue even after this match.
In the women’s championship match, Alexa Bliss should retain the title via some shenanigans thrown by her protégé, Mickie James.
Naomi might steal the show but she is not still good enough to pick up the title.
In the tag team championship match, the American Alpha should retain after going through a turmoil match. They would go on to create a Wrestlemania feud with The Usos, further.
Dolph Ziggler should also pick up a shocking win against Apollo Crews and Kalisto to keep his heel momentum going on.
Lastly, Randy Orton should pick up a win in his singles encounter with Luke Harper. A win for Harper would do wonder for him but Orton is the Rumble winner and there’s no way that WWE would like to steal the momentum away from him.
