WWE doesn’t have a lot of time to get to their next Smackdown-branded pay per view, Elimination Chamber. The event takes place on February 12 from Phoenix, AZ at Talking Stick Resort Arena and will feature the Elimination Chamber match. The event will air on pay per view and WWE Network starting with the pre-show at 7PM EST and the main card at 8PM EST. The following matches are currently being advertised as of last night’s Smackdown and Talking Smack broadcasts:
- The Elimination Chamber: John Cena (c) vs. AJ Styles vs. The Miz vs. Baron Corbin vs. Dean Ambrose vs. Bray Wyatt; Match is for the WWE Championship
- Alexa Bliss (c) vs. Naomi; Smackdown Women’s Championship
- American Alpha (c) will defend the Smackdown Tag Team Championship in a tag team turmoil match
- Nikki Bella vs. Natalya
It’s worth noting that the tag team and women’s championship matches were made on Talking Smack. There was no defined opponent named for American Alpha, but there was a tag team brawl segment that would indicate The Usos, The Ascension, Slater and Rhyno, and The Vaudevillains are all among the mix of contenders. As other matches are announced we will be sure to update the card. Drew will have your coverage of the show on that Sunday night.
