February 11, 2017 - WWE
Just dual weeks after a Royal Rumble, WWE’s 2017 book of a Elimination Chamber pay-per-view could shake all adult for a SmackDown Live code on a Road to WrestleMania.
It is all set to go down Sunday during 8 p.m. ET live worldwide on a WWE Network. The Kickoff Show will start one hour progressing during 7 p.m.
Before we here during CBS Sports get to a predictions for a event, let’s take a demeanour during a full Elimination Chamber card.
Elimination Chamber matches
Elimination Chamber predictions
Mojo Rawley vs. Curt Hawkins (Kickoff Show): Do we severely care? Prediction: Hawkins wins, we guess.
Apollo Crews Kalisto vs. Dolph Ziggler: This compare even being requisitioned in a initial place is a dumbfounding move, and given there’s no judicious approach to have it finish yet one side or a other being damaged, eventually we consider a finish is irrelevant. Prediction: Crews Kalisto win around disqualification
Becky Lynch vs. Mickie James: There’s a possibility that these dual furnish one of a best matches of a evening, and if a purpose is to serve Lynch’s tour to a pretension compare during WrestleMania, afterwards it has to be James going over here, approaching with a assistance of her cohort. There will be copiousness of opportunities for Lynch to get wins behind on SmackDown. Prediction: Mickie James wins
Nikki Bella vs. Natalya: If a compare is even hold — and we contend that exclusive a backstage conflict or something identical — afterwards it creates clarity for Bella to get a win in what might be one of her final WWE matches. Apparently her surgically-repaired neck is causing problems and a mangle — possibly temporary, extended or permanent — is approaching after WrestleMania 33. That should prove a win here and detriment during a large show. Prediction: Nikki Bella wins
Tag Team Championship (Turmoil Match) — American Alpha (c) vs. The Usos vs. The Ascension vs. Heath Slater Rhyno vs. Breezango vs. The Vaudevillains: Another instance of bad engagement by WWE as 3 of these 6 tab teams have no business even being in a match. It would be good to see WWE ease down The Ascension’s gimmick and give them a legit pull into a finals of this match, yet eventually we consider it winds adult as many design — Alpha vs. Usos for a titles. That’s a good long-term feud, one that should strech a peak during WrestleMania, yet it would do repairs to Alpha to remove a belts so quickly. Don’t be astounded if we see The Revival on SmackDown soon, maybe on Sunday? Prediction: American Alpha retains a titles
Women’s Championship — Alexa Bliss (c) vs. Naomi: Though Naomi’s new opening and ring rigging has been a large improvement, her impression is not during any theatre where giving her a pretension would do anyone good. Bliss, meanwhile, seems to be flourishing by a week and is in a plain place as a heel champion entering WrestleMania. Prediction: Alexa Bliss retains a title
Randy Orton vs. Luke Harper: we could give we research or irascibility here, so let’s hang to a latter. Who is going to take this: a Royal Rumble leader or third circle in a organisation that is currently splintering or damaged up, depending on a week? we consider we know a answer to that. Prediction: Randy Orton wins
WWE Championship (Elimination Chamber) — John Cena (c) vs. AJ Styles vs. Bray Wyatt vs. Dean Ambrose vs. The Miz vs. Baron Corbin: Ask many and it’s a foregone finish that Wyatt wins his initial pretension on Sunday, environment adult a rematch of his No Mercy compare with Orton during WrestleMania. And let’s be honest: That sounds like a flattering good match, yet substantially one that will breeze adult fourth or fifth on a card. We know Ambrose, Miz and substantially Corbin are not winning, so that immediately cuts a options down. Styles losing to Cena during Royal Rumble usually to win a pretension behind dual weeks after is not that approaching either.
Some have poo-poo’d a idea of renewing a Cena-Orton adversary during WrestleMania, yet we would acquire it. Either way, we consider Orton gets concerned in a compare by appearing during a finish and possibly assisting Wyatt constraint a pretension (before attack him with a RKO) or branch on Wyatt with an RKO and permitting Cena to collect adult a win. (He could also usually RKO both, as he’s cannot to do, and let it get sorted out from there.) The latter choice would vanquish Wyatt, who is currently being rebuilt by WWE as a featured actor on SmackDown, so eventually we consider a former happens. The usually doubt that stays is how Cena and Styles are afterwards requisitioned for WrestleMania since there’s usually one Dead Man to go around. Prediction: Bray Wyatt wins a title
