• Interesting Scenario For The Universal Title At Elimination Chamber
Universal Champion Roman Reigns kicked off tonight’s SmackDown and said Edge won’t pick him for a match at WrestleMania 37 as he’s scared and knows he can’t be The Tribal Chief.
Adam Pearce then announced that Roman Reigns will defend the Universal Championship inside the Elimination Chamber. However, Paul Heyman said the contract only says Reigns needs to defend the Title, but it doesn’t have to be inside the Elimination Chamber. So now, the Elimination Chamber match will crown the #1 contender and that man will face Reigns for the Title on the same night.
Qualifying matches will take place tonight for this Chamber match. However, Pearce announced that two names don’t need to qualify – Jey Uso and Kevin Owens. This made Reigns angry and he got in Pearce’s face.
In the first qualifying match, the team of Sami Zayn & King Corbin defeated the team of Dominik & Rey Mysterio to qualify for the SmackDown Elimination Chamber match.
