WWE Smackdown opened with Roman Reigns and Paul Heyman announcing that Reigns was contracted to wrestle at Elimination Chamber, but that Adam Pearce couldn’t put him in an Elimination Chamber match. Roman Reigns is reportedly upset with WWE burying Daniel Bryan.
Reigns also unloaded on Edge, saying he doesn’t want it, and got nervous last week. Reigns said Edge is scared, and he will beat him down so bad he will have to be put on a Legends contract and be an Ambassador for WWE. Reigns said he’s not losing WWE Universal Title until he wants to, and it’s staying on his shoulder for good.
Reigns proclaimed, “I’m the Sun. Everything orbits me. You’re here because of me.”
Pearce then announced a Chamber match, and dropped his microphone when getting out of the ring. Fans pointed out the ‘mic drop’ botch on Twitter. He then announced Kevin Owens and Jey Uso were in the Chamber match, and that there would be qualifying matches for other participants.
Sami Zayn and King Corbin beat Rey Mysterio and Dominik Mysterio in a qualifier, while Daniel Bryan and Cesaro defeated Robert Roode and Dolph Ziggler.
Cesaro also started a feud with Seth Rollins, as Rollins attacked Cesaro after his heel comeback promo when Cesaro was the only wrestler to remain ringside after the whole Smackdown roster, who were watching, left.
