SmackDown Elimination Chamber Participants Announced, Winner To Face Roman Reigns For Universal Title

Two more matches have been announced for WWE Elimination Chamber.

The February 12 episode of SmackDown began with Adam Pearce presenting Roman Reigns with a contract to defend his Universal Title in an Elimination Chamber match. The Head of the Table was unimpressed with the WWE Official, reminding him that he, and only he, calls the shots on Friday Nights. Instead, Paul Heyman announced that Roman would defend his Championship versus the winner of the SmackDown Elimination Chamber match later that same night.

Pearce then shared the names of two men who would qualify automatically, Jey Uso and Kevin Owens. The other 4 participants would be decided through qualifying matches. Sonya Deville informed Pearce backstage that she set up a tag team match to determine the next two entrants. That bout saw Sami Zayn and Baron Corbin defeat the team of Rey and Dominik Mysterio.

The main event featured Daniel Bryan and Cesaro teaming up against the SmackDown Tag Team Champions, Dolph Ziggler and Robert Roode. Earlier in the night, Cesaro was attacked by a returning Seth Rollins after everyone walked out on his sermon. This, however, had no effect on the Swiss Superman as he continued his hot streak, getting Dolph Ziggler to tap out to the Sharpshooter.

After the match, all of the Elimination Chamber participants brawled. Kevin Owens cleared the ring with a series of Stunners. With Reigns watching on in his locker room, Owens looked into the camera and told the Champ that he's coming for him. This feud is far from done.

The updated card for the event can be seen here.
