There was a lot of intrigue about who would win the Elimination Chamber going into this pay per view. Are they really going to give us Randy Orton against John Cena after they battled many times in the past? Is AJ Styles going to win the title back? Miz was rumored to win it just a couple of hours before the show started.
Yet, the organization went in the right direction with Bray Wyatt becoming the WWE Champion and going to the Wrestlemania 33 to face Randy Orton at the grandest stage of them all. They made him look like a legit superstar and a valid champion as he entered at the number four spot and was pretty good in the match.
He pinned both AJ Styles and John Cena in the same match to win the title. If that doesn’t tell you that Bray Wyatt is for real and that the company is going with him as the champion, nothing will. Pinning of Cena was a bit surprising, but they went that extra length to make him look like a legit superstar and making Sister Abigail a serious move that knocked out two biggest superstars on the Smackdown Live roster.
Overall, it was a great battle in a new looking Elimination Chamber. Everybody looked good, and the company booked this perfectly. Everything was well done, and it made for a good show in which fans really enjoyed. In the end, it all made sense, and it also built intrigue for the next Smackdown Live episode and the road to Wrestlemania 33. There are still seven weeks until the show so things can change. But, as of right now, it seems that we are going to see Randy Orton challenging the Eater Of World, Bray Wyatt, at WWE’s biggest show of the year.
