The super-talented Cesaro again displayed his unrealistic skills inside the Elimination Chamber. Unfortunately, he was held back yet again as he failed to pull off the victory. ‘The Swiss Superman’ made it down to the final three it couldn’t finish the job.
Fans were absolutely heartbroken to see him get eliminated at the very end and felt like he deserved a lot more. Interestingly, Cesaro echoed their concerns in a Twitter post.
The SmackDown Elimination Chamber match featured Cesaro, Daniel Bryan, Kevin Owens, King Corbin, Sami Zayn, and Jey Uso.
The winner would go on to face Roman Reigns for the same title on the same night. Obviously, the stakes were high and every competitor had their eyes on the prize as they entered the Chamber.
Jey Uso, however, had been placed in the fight for the express purpose of eliminating the other contenders or slowing them down, so they would become easy prey for Roman Reigns.
Cesaro managed to eliminate King Corbin and stay out of the way as Sami Zayn and Kevin Owens were both eliminated. However, he fell prey to Jey Uso, who managed to pin him towards the end of the match.
Daniel Bryan ended up winning the fight after pinning Jey Uso. However, his victory was bitter-sweet as Roman decided to pre-pone his match. He walked out right after Bryan pulled off the victory, indicating that he was going to defend then and there.
Daniel Bryan had no choice but to take up the challenge and was finished off quickly by ‘The Tribal Chief’. Reigns, in turn, was taken out by Royal Rumble winner Edge who ambushed him with a Spear, gesturing that he had made his choice for WrestleMania.
As for Cesaro, fans argue that WWE is wasting his potential by not giving him a title run. However, ‘The Swiss Superman’ entertains fans every week through his work and proves that a big fancy belt isn’t everything that makes a wrestler great.
