We cannot contain our excitement as WWE brings two exciting Elimination Chamber contests our way. We’ve already covered the Monday Night Raw side of things, but what about SmackDown? There are only two matches announced from the blue brand and both are interdependent! Let’s predict who wins on Sunday.

Cesaro vs Daniel Bryan vs Jey Uso vs Kevin Owens vs King Corbin vs Sami Zayn – #1 Contender Elimination Chamber Match

Roman Reigns is the Universal Champion, but he will not defend his title inside the Chamber like WWE Champion Drew McIntyre. Instead, he will defend the title immediately against whoever wins the Elimination Chamber match.

All six men in the match are exceptional talents inside the ring, but only one will win. Kevin Owens could win the Elimination Chamber, proving to the world why he’s called the ‘Prizefighter.’
Kevin Owens could also win the Chamber match based on his unsettled rivalry with Reigns. It would make perfect sense for KO to fight through and win the Chamber, only to lose to Roman Reigns.
Prediction: Kevin Owens.

Roman Reigns vs TBA (Possibly Owens) – WWE Universal Championship

Whoever wins the Elimination Chamber gets an immediate title shot against Roman Reigns. This will undoubtedly be a one-sided contest, as Reigns will be fresh coming in for his match compared to his opponent.
We already predicted KO winning the Chamber and losing to Reigns, but there will be one difference this time. Roman Reigns will win the match clean. Yes, you heard it right, clean as a whistle.
The loss will come clean, as KO will already be exhausted after the grueling Elimination Chamber match. A clean, pinfall loss would also mark the end of Roman and KO’s hard-hitting feud.

Any other opponent winning the Chamber and then challenging Reigns only to lose makes little sense. It would only make that wrestler a one-hit-wonder considering Edge vs Reigns is the most likely scenario for WrestleMania. KO and Reigns’ story will write its perfect end on Sunday, if that’s how they actually plan to go.
Prediction: Roman Reigns (c).
These were our predictions for SmackDown’s matches at the Elimination Chamber. Do you agree with us or will there be a different outcome? Let us know in the comments below!
