WWE SmackDown PREVIEW: Becky Lynch status, Elimination Chamber updates, new tag team | WWE | Sport


Randy Orton vs Mustafa Ali

Randy Orton and Mustafa Ali will fight for the WWE Championship at Elimination Chamber on February 17 at the Toyota Center in Houston, Texas.

The SmackDown superstars will battle inside the dreaded Elimination Chamber against WWE Champion Daniel Bryan, Jeff Hardy, AJ Styles and Samoa Joe.

But before the brutal encounter Orton and Ali will square off against each other on Tuesday and look to build some momentum heading to the chamber.

Daniel Bryan vs Jeff Hardy

WWE Champion Daniel Bryan will have to defend the WWE Championship against five of SmackDown’s biggest superstars at Elimination Chamber.

But he will have to forget about the upcoming Elimination Chamber Match tomorrow night and focus on overcoming the legendary Jeff Hardy first.

Hardy will look to build some momentum ahead of the brutal matchup and establish himself as an early favourite.

New tag team

Shinsuke Nakamura and Rusev suffered a miserable last week as they lost a US Championship Match to R-Truth on the same night.

Truth won the title from Nakamura and then successfully defended it against The Bulgarian Brute a few minutes later.

Rusev and The Artist then teamed up and brutalised the new US Champion.

Ex-RAW Tag Team Champions Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson confronted the two SmackDown superstars asking them to explain the attack.

Gallows and Anderson then challenged them to a match this week which Nakamura accepted.

Becky Lynch update

Becky Lynch has decided to battle Ronda Rousey for the RAW Women’s Championship at WrestleMania 35 after winning the women’s Royal Rumble Match.

However, Lynch seems to have rekindled her rivalry with Charlotte Flair who injured her knee last week.

Rumours suggest Charlotte will be added to the WrestleMania bout and make it a Triple Threat Match.

The two SmackDown superstars will continue their war ahead of Elimination Chamber.
