5 Things WWE got right on SmackDown before Elimination Chamber
- With so much to look forward to on Sunday, SmackDown tried to deliver the final punches before we see some major matches take place.
#4 The Gauntlet Match
Otis and Tucker claimed the win with a thunderous Compactor to Big E, and then immediately got to work on the Lucha House Party. The massive duo took out the high-flyers and then faced off against the crowd favorites, The Usos.
While Jimmy and Jey were red hot, they were no match for Otis and Tucker who felt like stars in this match. Tucker stunned the former SmackDown Tag Team Champions with a roll-up to advance to the next challengers.
Out came at the current Champions, The Miz and John Morrison. Once again Tucker was able to roll-up his opponent, as he got the pin over Morrison. This led to the heels attacking the babyfaces after the pin and weakened them ahead of their final match.
Dolph Ziggler and Robert Roode picked up the pieces from there and a surprise Superkick from Ziggler ended the match for Otis and his teammate.
The Heavy Machinery’s performance was great in this match and showed the WWE Universe that the two men have the potential to become future Champions.
Ziggler taking out Otis for the final pin fits fittingly in their ongoing storyline, and we could watch the two teams go head to head for several weeks to come after Elimination Chamber.Published 07 Mar 2020, 12:29 IST
