Shane McMahon reveals who will challenge John Cena for the WWE World title at Elimination Chamber on SmackDown

We knew WWE wouldn’t waste any time getting things set for SmackDown’s next pay-per-view (PPV). There are only two Tuesday nights between Royal Rumble and Elimination Chamber, after all, and tonight (Jan. 31) is one of them.

Commissioner Shane McMahon laid out the main event, a WWE World title match to be fought inside the structure which gives the show its name, right at the top of the the episode. John Cena will defend the belt he just beat AJ Styles for in San Antonio two days ago against Styles and four other men...

Bray Wyatt, Baron Corbin, The Miz and Intercontinental champion Dean Ambrose.

The winner will presumably go on to defend the belt in Orlando at WrestleMania 33 against Royal Rumble winner Randy Orton. Rumors say that might not be Cena.

We’ll find out on Sunday, Feb. 12 when Elimination Chamber comes our way from Phoenix on WWE Network.
