This week’s episode of WWE SmackDown had its fair share of highs and lows. While there were a handful of good segments, a lot of other events were quite underwhelming. The biggest talking point of the show was the confirmation of another Elimination Chamber match. The winner of this bout will get an opportunity to challenge Roman Reigns at the same pay-per-view.
In the opening segment of WWE SmackDown, Adam Pearce confirmed that Jey Uso and Kevin Owens would be the first two participants in the Elimination Chamber match. Later in the show, King Corbin and Sami Zayn defeated Rey and Dominik Mysterio to book their spots in the Elimination Chamber match. The show later confirmed the final entrants in its last match.
In this article, we will look at Superstars who impressed us on WWE SmackDown and those who did not.
#1 Impressed on WWE SmackDown: Cesaro
In the main event of WWE SmackDown, Cesaro and Daniel Bryan teamed up to take on Dolph Ziggler and Robert Roode. Despite their match last week, Cesaro and Daniel Bryan were in complete sync as they fought for the final two spots in the Elimination Chamber match. The match was entertaining as all four Superstars worked hard to deliver a short yet exciting match.
The WWE SmackDown Tag Team Champions also looked strong inside the ring. However, Cesaro came across as the strongest competitor as he managed to dominate both his opponents despite being attacked earlier in the show. His in-ring maneuvers accounted for a spectacular display, and Cesaro looked more dangerous than ever.
The closing moments of the match saw Ziggler tapping out to Cesaro’s submission move. With this victory, Cesaro and Bryan sealed their respective spots in the Elimination Chamber match that will determine the next challenger for Roman Reigns’ Universal Championship. It was great to see Cesaro in the limelight on WWE SmackDown as he has deserved a world title push for a long time.
Following the match, Jey Uso attacked Cesaro with a steel chair. Soon, King Corbin and Sami Zayn also laid an attack on Bryan and Cesaro. While all the competitors were brawling on WWE SmackDown, Kevin Owens walked out and delivered a Stunner to everyone inside the ring while Roman Reigns watched the chaos unfold back in his room. After everyone rolled out of the ring, KO sat on a chair and sent a stern message to the Universal Champion claiming that he would not go anywhere.
