It's been a good few days to be a fan of professional wrestling/sports entertainment. Elimination Chamber was a solid show and RAW felt fresh. I have a feeling that the action will crescendo with SmackDown Live next. This is because a lot of seeds were planted at Elimination Chamber that should play out on SmackDown Live.

There is the obvious, there is the ridiculous and there's the outrageous. I shall cover different surprises from each sphere in this article. Please let me know your thoughts and views in the comments section.

Also, feel free to suggest surprises of your own. What decisions do you think WWE needs to take to make the show interesting?

Bear in mind that SmackDown Live has seen some of the lowest ratings in recent times.

#5 Randy Orton vs. AJ Styles begins

Of course, the two men met inside the Elimination Chamber earlier this week. They also had a brief altercation during the gauntlet match on SmackDown Live last week, when Randy Orton pinned AJ Styles. The two men have clashed in the past too, in what was a tease of a thrilling rivalry between two of SmackDown Live's biggest stars.

But the fact of the matter is that Randy Orton and AJ Styles are two men who've never had a full-fledged feud, even though they've been in the same brand ever since the last brand split. And this could culminate at WrestleMania where AJ Styles and Randy Orton could have the long-standing rivalry that fans have wanted.

Many men have attempted to play mind games with AJ Styles like Samoa Joe and Shinsuke Nakamura but 'The Viper' is certainly the master of them all. Maybe they'll clash as recently as the show this week, setting things off in motion.
