Roman Reigns Reveals SmackDown Elimination Chamber Stipulation, Adam Pearce Announces First Two Entrants

  • Reigns makes his way to the ring to open the show as we see Adam Pearce already standing in it with a contract in hand. Roman demands Pearce step closer to him and reminds him that he commands Pearce, not the other way round.
  • Reigns moves on to Edge and says Edge was scared last week because he knows he’d beat him down so bad WWE would have put him on a Legends contract before asking about Pearce’s contract. Pearce says his contract stipulates that Reigns will defend the Universal title in Elimination Chamber like Drew.
  • Roman passes it over to Heyman who says that Roman doesn’t need to defend the title at Elimination Chamber but whoever wins will face Reigns straight after. Pearce obviously doesn’t like the idea but Heyman says he has no choice and tells Pearce to announce the stipulation as such.
  • Pearce begrudgingly accepts and says they’ll be some qualifying matches for Elimination Chamber tonight but announces that Jey Uso and Kevin Owens are in the match immediately. Roman squares up to Pearce but Heyman gets him to back off.
  • After a commercial break, Sonya talks to Pearce backstage and suggests a tag team match of Sami Zayn & King Corbin vs Rey & Dominik Mysterio. The winner team will both qualify for Elimination Chamber.
