So we opened up with a lovely speech from Becky Lynch which was the normal heel promo before it erupted into a war of words between Big Time Becks, Doudrop and Liv Morgan. The most important thing to come from this was Bianca and Liv announcing that they are entering themselves in the Royal Rumble match. This soon ended up as a tag team match which saw Bianca and Liv taking on Big Time Becks and Doudrop which saw Doudrop break up her own partner’s pin attempt to steal the victory for herself and give Becky a finisher afterwards.
Kevin Owens VS Damian Priest
The next thing we were treated to was seeing Seth Rollins on the Kevin Owens Show.
Something else worth noting was the announcement that Elimination Chamber is in Jedha, Saudi Arabia which was said by Corey Graves on commentary.
Seth went on to just take shots at Roman. A truly shirt worthy oneliner was ‘Roman may be at the head of the table but I set the table’ Yet again, Seth Freakin’ Rollins at his best. The only other thing of true notice was Kevin declaring himself in the Royal Rumble which was a total shocker(!). All this led to Damian Priest coming out and having a match with Kevin Owens. The match ended with Kevin Owens winning thanks to feinting an injury and quickly hitting a stunner on Priest.
The Alpha Academy VS RKBro
Following that, we had Alpha Academy’s Graduation Ceremony which was just another way of saying they came out and showed off their newly won tag team titles to rub them in the faces of everyone. Of course, this was going to make RKBro come out and respond. After a short war of words, we soon had a brawl between the two teams and an announcement that RKBRO will face Alpha Academy in an academic challenge? Yeah, we have no idea what’s going to happen either.
Austin Theory VS Finn Balor
It took the threat of Mr McMahon beating him and sending a selfie to his mothers bloodied body for Austin Theory to get a clean win over Finn Balor, which honestly hurt my very soul seeing Finn lose to someone like this when the man should be in the main event picture…
Nikki A.S.H VS Rhea Ripley
Next, we had Nikki A.S.H facing off against her former partner, Rhea Ripley which lasted all of two seconds thanks to a quick and easy distraction from Queen Zelina and Carmella. Luckily the match never officially started so that won’t go on Rhea’s official record.
Omos VS Reggie
To follow, we had Reggie VS Omos which was honestly not a match I’d ever see. Even with a distraction of Dana running through the ring with R-Truth and Akira chasing her wasn’t enough to stop the inevitable 4-second squash match where Omos pinned Reggie without even breaking a sweat.
Maryse & The Miz VS Beth Phoenix & Edge
After seeing Reggie get wrecked, we got to see Maryse attempt to worm her way out of the match at the Royal Rumble which just turned out to be a ploy to ambush Beth with a brick that was skillfully hidden inside her purse.
The Street Profits & The Mysterios VS The Dirty Doggs & Apollo Crews with Commander Azeez
Time for a needless tag-team match! A quick match that saw Angelo Dawkins pin Apollo Crews to get the victory.
Oh, look at that! Time for this weeks Alexa Bliss scene! The doctor asked Alexa to say the first word that came to her mind after he said a word to which all her responses were ‘Lily’ apart from when the Doctor said ‘Imaginary’ to which she just squared up to him which caused him to run away… (Yep, it sadly looks like this Lily character is sticking around!)
Bobby Lashley VS Seth Rollins
With that, it’s time for our main event, Seth Rollins VS Bobby Lashley! After a great back and forth between the two, this match ended up finishing with Cedric and Alexander and Shelton Benjamin ambushing Bobby Lashley and shortly after, The USO’s laid out Seth Rollins with a double Superkick.
