Smackdown is moving closer to the Elimination Chamber show, and Fightful Select has learned some of the plans for tonight's show.
WWE already announced much of tonight's show, with The Good Brothers vs. Shinsuke Nakamura & Rusev being set. In addition, Randy Orton will take on the fast-rising Mustafa Ali in a match of competitors both set for the Elimination Chamber WWE Title match. As we noted on Fightful Select over the weekend, Mustafa Ali has been working through a tailbone injury of late, but isn't expected to miss any time.
A Charlotte Flair promo is on tonight's show, as well as one from Daniel Bryan and his new custom made WWE Championship. Bryan will also compete in a match tonight.
To reiterate, Becky Lynch's absence from house shows is not due to a legit injury. We keep getting this question and just wanted to clear it up.
