Men’s Elimination Chamber Qualifier
Kevin Owens vs. Dominik Mysterio

Inside the arena, Corey Graves welcomes us to the show as we hear Kevin Owens’ theme music. “The Prize Fighter” makes his way to the ring to a huge pop for this opening Men’s Elimination Chamber Qualifying match.

Dominik Mysterio’s theme hits next and he tries cutting a promo as he walks to the ring, but of course the fans boo like crazy every time he tries talking. In the ring now, the bell sounds to get this one started.

KO starts off in the offensive lead, taking it to Dom-Dom as the fans go wild. After some more offense from Owens, we see “Dirty” Dom take over. On the floor, Owens shifts the momentum in his favor until R-Truth shows up and distracts him, allowing Dom to take over again.

On that note, we head into a mid-match commercial break as the action continues. When we return, we see Owens fight back into the offensive lead. He hits a big senton and then a top-rope frog splash for a super close near fall.

Dom takes back over and hits an X-Factor before going for the Three Amigos. Owens stops him after the first two and then does the Three Amigos himself, until Dom stops him on his third as well and connects with a DDT.

Owens fights back and hits a top-rope swanton for a close near fall. Dom fights back and hits a 6-1-9 for a close two count of his own. Dom tells R-Truth to go get him a chair. He takes his time but eventually grabs one. He ends up sitting in it and then Dom turns around into a pop-up powerbomb for the win.

Winner and QUALIFYING for the Men’s Elimination Chamber: Kevin Owens

She follows that up with a Meteora for a close pin attempt. Carlito and the LWO come down. Zelina yanks Lopez over the barricade.

Back in the ring, Stratton takes over and hits her Prettiest Moonsault Ever for the win. After the match, we see The O.C. approaching a dejected AJ Styles in the locker room.

Now the theme for Naomi hits, and it’s a new theme. She still has the neon glow and fist-pump coming out, but her name is spelled out to start things off and a different song plays. As she settles in the ring, we cut to a pre-match commercial break.

The Rock, Roman Reigns Close Out This Week’s Show

It’s main event (segment) time!

We see Bron Breakker on the stage with Nick Aldis and he is announced as the newest signee to the SmackDown brand. He will make his in-ring debut on next week’s show. We head to another commercial break.

When we return, Corey Graves and Wade Barrett run down some scheduled matches for next week’s show, which as noted, is being taped tonight after this live show ends.

Roman Reigns’ theme hits and out he comes accompanied by Paul Heyman, Solo Sikoa and Jimmy Uso. He settles in the ring and mentions how when his cousin comes out, the fans might sing along with him, but know everything the two says has substance to it, and is being said for a reason.

On that note, The Rock’s theme hits and out he comes in a colorful vest with a pair of shades on. He’s looking and acting like a heel. As he continues walking to the ring, we head to a commercial break.

When we return from the break, The Rock makes his way to the ring and settles inside. The Bloodline stands in the corner while he stands center ring with a microphone in-hand. He mentions tonight being a record for the biggest collection of trailer park trash in one place.

The fans boo him. He asks if they’re sure they want to boo The Rock. They boo again. He does his “Finally …” catchphrase and they boo again. “Oh you’re gonna boo that, too?” He then mocks Cody Rhodes and the fans for crying about wanting him to finish his story, when they could’ve had the biggest main event ever at WrestleMania XL instead.

The Rock then asks what is Cody’s story? He says his cousin Roman beat Cody’s ass last year at WrestleMania. He says he lost and he wants a rematch? That’s his story? That’s not how this works. He says it’s stupid logic. He says think of applying that to sports. The fans chant “What?” as he talks and tells them to shut up and learn something.

He goes on to compare it to the 49ers saying after they lost the Super Bowl to let them still finish their story. He calls the fans a bunch of crybaby b*tches. He tells Cody his story is ending and their story, he and Roman Reigns’ are just beginning. He says The Bloodline are the most dominant forces in WWE. “If ya smell …” he stops and tells the fans sing-along with The Rock is over. “If ya smell … what The Bloodline is cookin!” That’s how this week’s show wraps up.
