At WWE Elimination Chamber, “The New” Daniel Bryan will defend the WWE Championship against AJ Styles, Randy Orton, Samoa Joe, Jeff Hardy and Mustafa Ali inside the dreaded Elimination Chamber.

The announcement came on the heels of the chaotic Royal Rumble pay-per-view, where Bryan survived Styles’ challenge thanks to the surprise arrival of Rowan. When the referee was inadvertently knocked down by an errant kick from AJ, Rowan rushed into the ring to smash Styles to bits with a menacing chokeslam, allowing Bryan to pin his opponent as the referee recovered for the three-count.

Two days later on SmackDown LIVE, The Phenomenal One emerged to take issue with Bryan’s tactics, only to be interrupted by a slew of the blue brand’s elite Superstars looking to stake their claim for an opportunity to challenge The Beard. Randy Orton, Jeff Hardy, Samoa Joe and Mustafa Ali soon joined the fray, and a snide comment from The Samoan Submission Machine to The Phenomenal One ignited an out-of-control melee between all five Superstars.

Bryan refused to face any of the competitors on the ground that they were all “fickle,” but WWE COO Triple H soon joined the party and informed the outspoken titleholder that he would face all of them inside the career-altering combat zone!

In the Elimination Chamber, two competitors will start the bout while the remaining four Superstars remain enclosed in pods. At specified intervals, a pod will open at random, enabling a Superstar to enter the match. This will continue until all six of the combatants have joined the bout. Any Superstar can be eliminated at any time via pinfall or submission and must leave the chamber. The last Superstar standing will be the WWE Champion.

Don’t miss WWE Elimination Chamber, Sunday, Feb. 17, streaming live at 7 ET/4 PT on WWE Network.

Mustafa Ali has quickly become SmackDown LIVE’s newest sensation, but will face perhaps his toughest challenge yet when he squares off against Randy Orton this Tuesday night on SmackDown LIVE.

With both Ali and Orton slotted for the WWE Championship Elimination Chamber Match on Feb. 17, each Superstar will look to take the other down a peg in hopes of putting themselves in prime position to leave with the WWE Title in roughly two weeks’ time. Can Ali pick up another major victory or will The Viper strike him down prior to the monumental championship showdown? Find out this Tuesday night at 8/7 C on SmackDown LIVE.

We are back and WWE Champion Daniel Bryan makes his way to the ring. We see photos from the match from Sunday night.

Daniel asks if you know who won this past Sunday at the Royal Rumble? Daniel says it was each and every one of you. You all won and your children won. Your children’s children all won because Daniel Bryan won. Because a victory for him is a victory for every sentient being on Earth because he is the planet’s champion. Daniel says he does not expect all of you to understand what he is saying because none of you know what winning feels like. Daniel says he found someone who understands the truth in everything Daniel says. He did not come out for Daniel, but for the greater good.

Daniel brings out Rowan.

Daniel asks what do you see when you see Rowan. You see the dirt under his fingernails and think he is a mindless runt. He spends time at night reading. Daniel says Rowan is his intellectual peer. He can see through the facade of AJ Styles. AJ Styles could be right some time. He suggested that Daniel was a hypocrite. Daniel says he is a hypocrite. It is because he carries around this belt.

Daniel asks for a trash can and Daniel says this is a symbol of excellence but it is also a symbol of excess. It is gaudy, made from cheap labor, and bound to the skin of a cow whose life was taken from her. Daniel says the cow who gave her life was named Daisy. Daisy had the ability to feel immense joy which she did not get to enjoy much of in this life. She also had the ability to feel immense pain. She was forced to give her life for this symbol. This symbol is the very thing that Rowan and he stand against. Daniel throws the title in the trash and says that the title belt is trash.

Daniel says when he became the WWE Champion, he would change the world. To change the world, we need new symbols.

Rowan gives Daniel a new belt that is the new symbol of excellence. This is your new WWE Championship.

Daniel says the people are ignorant. This belt is made from 100% organic sustainable hemp from a naturally fallen oak.

AJ Styles interrupts when his music plays.

AJ asks Daniel if he thought he would sit in the back while Daniel threw the WWE Championship in the trash. AJ asks Daniel if he smoked the prototype. AJ says for someone who doesn’t like corporations, Daniel found the biggest insurance policy . .

Randy Orton’s music interrupts and we go to commercial.

We are back and Jeff Hardy is now in the ring and Mustafa Ali makes his way to the ring to talk about what he has done.

Orton asks Ali if he was eliminated by a girl at the Royal Rumble.

Samoa Joe makes his way to the ring and he says he is not here to ask for permission. He is here to make a champion go to sleep. He says he will take care of the Viper and it will come from somewhere. Joe tells Jeff he already beat him and he tells Jeff to shut up like he is at an AA meeting. Joe tells Ali that he got lucky on Sunday. Joe says Ali’s eyes don’t lie because they were closed when he put you to sleep. Joe asks AJ how is Wendy doing.

AJ punches Joe and Orton with an RKO to Joe. Hardy with a Twist of Fate to Orton.

Daniel says none of you are going to get a chance.

Triple H appears on the TitanTron and he confirms for Daniel that he will not be taking on any ONE of those superstars. You will be defending the WWE Championship against all of those superstars in the Elimination Chamber.

We go to credits with everyone brawling. AJ and Joe go into the crowd while Orton sends Ali into the ringside barrier.

We take a look back at what happened last week between Samoa Joe and Mustafa Ali when they were supposed to meet in the ring.

Ali says he used to run up and down these streets as a police officer to protect and serve. He learned an important lesson. Eyes do not lie. Samoa Joe decided to jump him from behind. Joe kept asking him ‘Do you understand’. Ali says he understands but it wasn’t all of the kicks and punches or having his head cracked against the ring post that made him understand. It was the eyes. Your eyes told him that he was not worthy to be in the ring with him and that he was not worthy. Ali tells Joe to look into his eyes. Ali says he has no fear, only purpose. His eyes show that there is nowhere to run or hide. Ali says he can beat Joe.

Samoa Joe savagely assaulted Mustafa Ali before their scheduled match on SmackDown LIVE last week, with The Samoan Submission Machine absolutely brutalizing Ali during the ambush. The Samoan Submission Machine would cite that his reason for the attack was to send a message to every Superstar ahead of Royal Rumble … but Ali won’t stand to be made an example of.

The two are now scheduled to face off again this Tuesday night. Will SmackDown LIVE’s newest sensation gain a measure of retribution, or will Joe continue to build his own brutal brand of momentum heading into the Men’s Royal Rumble Match?

While Drew McIntyre’s determination manifests itself in pure destruction, there’s a Superstar on SmackDown LIVE that’s just as determined who could end up as WWE Champion in 2019.

After spending much of 2018 establishing himself as The Heart & Soul of 205 Live, Mustafa Ali arrived on Team Blue and brought the fight to WWE Champion Daniel Bryan in his first night on the brand and defeated him in his second match on SmackDown LIVE.

While he may not possess the size and strength of a McIntyre, Ali has an arsenal of high-flying moves that have immediately established him as one of Team Blue’s top stars. Most importantly, there’s no keeping Mustafa Ali down. His will to continue fighting, even in the most dire circumstances, may help Mustafa Ali capture sports-entertainment’s most coveted prize a lot sooner than people expect. — BOBBY MELOK
