John Cena defended the WWE World Championship against AJ Styles, Baron Corbin, Bray Wyatt, Dean Ambrose and The Miz in an Elimination Chamber match for the gold on Sunday night.
Unfortunately for the 16-time world champion, his reign ended after two weeks thanks to a Sister Abigail from Wyatt that eliminated him to leave just him and Styles left to duke it out for the title.
In the end, Bray Wyatt — Randy Orton’s fellow family member — hit another Sister Abigail on Styles this time and got the pinfall, the win and the WWE World Championship for the first time in his career.
Wyatt fought through five of the best of the business to win his first singles title in WWE, and now he’ll defend the gold against one of the greatest performers of the last decade in Orton.
We’re still seven weeks away from WrestleMania 33 in Orlando, but SmackDown has their main event of the Show of Shows, and that’s Bray Wyatt vs. Randy Orton for the WWE World Championship in what should be an amazing match.
The clash should bring some interesting twists and turns with their alliance in recent months, plus the lingering Luke Harper issue, despite Orton’s victory over the big man on Sunday night in Phoenix.
We’ll know more about Raw’s main event of WrestleMania after the Fastlane pay-per-view next month in Milwaukee thanks to the result of the Kevin Owens-Goldberg match, but SmackDown has its big match for the show.
