- Sign up to receive the lastest news from LATINONE
WWE World Heavyweight Champion Randy Orton kicks off the show, once again whining about the lack of support from The Authority, only to get interrupted by Stephanie McMahon and WWE COO Triple H, who accused the champion of constant self-destruction with his paranoid behavior. The Authority tells Orton to quit complaining and that in preparation for his Elimination Chamber main event title match, he will face each of his Elimination Chamber opponents in consecutive weeks, starting with Daniel Bryan this week.
Six-Man Tag Team match: The Shield (United States Champion Dean Ambrose, Seth Rollins, & Roman Reigns) vs Intercontinental Champion Big E Langston, Rey Mysterio, & Kofi Kingston
The referee lost control of the match late in the bout, with all six men battling in the ring. Reigns, the legal man in the ring, nailed Kingston with a Flying Superman Punch, only to have Ambrose tag himself in, hitting Kingston with his finisher, and scoring the pin for The Shield. After the match, Reigns and Ambrose were bickering over their lack of communication, only to get interrupted by The Wyatts, on the TitanTron, telling them that they are falling into his trap.
Winner: The Shield
Jack Swagger of The Real Americans (w/ Zeb Colter & Antonio Cesaro) vs Christian
Swagger attempted to use his strength to wear down the veteran, who is one of the participants in the Elimination Chamber main event match, but Christian managed to outwit Swagger, reversing Swagger's Gutwrench Powerbomb into an Inverted DDT to regain the advantage, and later countered the Swagger Bomb into a Sunset Flip to roll over the former wrestling All-American for the pin and the three-count. After the match, manager Zeb Colter berated Swagger, with the rift growing larger week after week.
Steel Cage Tag Team Match: WWE Tag Team Champions The New Age Outlaws (Billy Gunn & Jesse James) vs Cody Rhodes & Goldust (Title Match)
Rhodes and Goldust were scheduled for a rematch against the New Age Outlaws last week, after losing the title at the Royal Rumble, but were interrupted by an angry Brock Lesnar, who F5'd both of them to send a message to Triple H. A Steel Cage match was ordered by Triple H, proving to be a physical battle for the tag team belts. When the referee lost control of the match, Goldust attempted a Crossbody that missed its intended target, and ended up hitting the cage. Rhodes, the legal man, then attempted a sick Moonsault off the top of the cage that nailed "Road Dogg" Jesse James (barely) but paid a price, hurting himself and getting pinned by "Bad Ass" Billy Gunn to retain the WWE Tag Team titles for the Outlaws.
Winner & still champions: The New Age Outlaws
Zack Ryder vs Titus O'Neil
Coming off having recently dumped his former tag team partner Darren Young last week on Friday Night Smackdown, a much more aggressive O'Neil showed Ryder why he calls himself "The Big Deal," overpowering Ryder and nailing the Clash of the Titus to earn the victory.
Winner: Titus O'Neil
Dance-off Contest Santino vs Fandango (w/ Summer Rae)
Santino was originally slated to have a dance-off against Fandango but called out NXT's Emma from the front row, who has been following Fandango and Summer Rae over a few weeks. While Summer Rae showed her moves, Emma wowwed over the crowd with her uncoordinated, clumsy dance steps that won her the contest.
Curtis Axel (w/ Ryback) vs Sheamus
Axel wisely focused his attack on Sheamus' surgically repaired shoulder, being that he recently returned to action at the Royal Rumble after rehabbing the injury, but could not handle the Irishman's power, nailing Axel with a Brogue Kick to seal the win.
Batista came out to the ring but before he could even get a word out, Alberto Del Rio, still angry he could not eliminate him in the Royal Rumble, made his way to the ring, once again promising to take out "The Animal" before he makes it to Wrestlemania XXX. The two came to blows, with Del Rio retreating before Batista could pull off the Batista Bomb.
Six-Man Tag Team match: The Wyatts (Bray Wyatt, Luke Harper, & Erick Rowan) vs. R-Truth, Dolph Ziggler, Xavier Woods
The Wyatts had control of the match, overpowering R-Truth despite his best efforts. R-Truth eventually made the hot-tag to Dolph Ziggler, who helped clear the ring of the deranged family, only to take a vicious Discus Clothesline from Harper that set Ziggler up for Wyatt's Sister Abagail finisher and the pin. After the match, The Shield showed a more united front and returned the favor, interrupting the Wyatts after their match on the TitanTron reminding them their vendetta is not over yet.
Winner: The Wyatts
Naomi of the Funkadactyls (w/Cameron) vs. Aksana (w/Alicia Fox)
Aksana tried using her size advantage over the E! Total Diva throughout the match, wearing her down with submission holds and reversing a Sunset Flip with a knee to her face for a pin attempt. Naomi recovered, hitting Aksana with a Enziguiri to set her up for a Split-Legged Moonsault that ended the match. After the bout, Alicia Fox attempted to attack the victor, but Cameron made the save with the Funkadactyls clearing the ring and celebrating Naomi's win.
WWE Heavyweight Champion Randy Orton vs Daniel Bryan (Non-title match)
Orton and Bryan, who battled all last summer in epic battles, put on another instant classic match, with Bryan working the knee by smashing it against the ring post and tossing the champion over the announcing table. "The Viper" dug into his bag of dirty tricks, biting Bryan on the knee to escape an Indian Deathlock and focusing on Bryan's shoulder to keep the pressure on him. WWE Director of Operations Kane came out and jumped on the apron to distract his former tag team partner, but Bryan hit him with a flying knee, tossed Orton out the ring, and hit both of them with a Suicide Dive to keep them disorientated. Bryan tripped Kane into the steel steps when the WWE exec came charging at him and returned to the ring, reversing an RKO attempt into a Flying Knee to score a win over "The Apex Predator". Orton, not happy with the loss, attacked Bryan after the bout, with Kane helping with the assault by choke-slamming Bryan to end the show.
Winner: Daniel Bryan
