WWE SmackDown Live comes waltzing back into our lives tonight (Feb. 14, 2017) from the Honda Center in Anaheim, California featuring the fallout show from the Elimination Chamber pay-per-view (PPV) that went down this past Sunday night in Phoenix, Arizona.

Advertised for tonight: Bray Wyatt defends the WWE world championship against John Cena, and more!

Come right back here at 8 p.m. ET when the SmackDown live blog kicks off once the show starts on USA. It will be below this line here. (REMINDER: NO GIFS OR PICS ARE ALLOWED IN THE COMMENTS SECTION. OFFENDERS WILL BE BANNED.)


Upon my podium, as the know-it-all scholar. down in my seat of judgement, gavels bang, uphold the law. Up on my soapbox, a leader out to change the world. Down in my pulpit as the holier-than-thou could-be messenger of God. And here, in the liveblog, telling you everything that happened on this here pro wrestling show, folks.

Show opens with a video package recapping Elimination Chamber.

(Wyatt noise)

Bray Wyatt makes his first televised entrance as WWE Champion. "You deserve it!" chants rain down and he begins. She never said it would be easy, she said they would lie to you, try to denounce you, try to steal your gift, and she was right, Sister Abigail. She always spoke the truth and so does he.

So when he tells you he knew this day would come, he is not telling you a lie. And on this day, in this moment in time, this very second, he can truly say that he has the whole damn world in his hands. Too much power can be a scary thing, not for him of course, but for all of us.

He says unto us, open our ears and he'll sing a beautiful melody, open your eyes and he'll show us the wonders of the world, walk with him and he'll lead us to paradise, but stand in his way and you'll burn in the fire. He welcomes us to the Era of Wyatt...

Enter John Cena. He compliments the crowd for being so energetic and offers a bit of respect to the new champion, introducing him. He's noticed he has supporters in the house tonight, and that he's done his job brainwashing them, since they chant "You deserve it!"

This, of course, provokes another round. But like his shirt says, no man deserves anything, they earn it, and they earn every single inch they get. Bray thinks he's got the whole world in his hands, no no no, the whole world is looking at the target on his shoulder.

And seeing as they have a match tonight for that championship, and everybody seems really excited about it, let's cut the chit-chat and get to earnin', right here, right now! (Van Halen is kicking ass in America?)

Enter AJ Styles. He tells 'em to hold on and says if John thinks he's getting his rematch first, he's wrong. You think you can jump the line, you can get away with that at the grocery store or the airport... Wait, no, who's he kidding, Cena has a private plane!

But this isn't about him, anyway, this is about AJ Styles. He points out that he beat John several times, and says he knows he can beat Bray, so he wants his one-on-one rematch right here, right now.

Enter Daniel Bryan. First, he congratulates Wyatt on his win, and he then addresses the conundrum. Cena is owed a rematch, AJ is owed a rematch, and they have promised the people of Anaheim a WWE Championship match. So what we're gonna do is John Cena vs. AJ Styles... vs. Bray Wyatt! It's a triple threat!

Commentary then puts over Becky Lynch vs. Mickie James and promises that we will feel the glow as Naomi addresses the crowd. But up next, American Alpha are walking the halls, ready for their match after the break.

Back from commercial and Dean Ambrose is walking backstage, yelling for Baron Corbin.

American Alpha (Chad Gable & Jason Jordan) vs. the Ascension (Konnor & Viktor)

Gable and Viktor to start, collar and elbow, Viktor goes behind but Chad takes him down with a wristlock and the Wastelander backs off. Waistlock reversed to a wristlock, Gable rolls through and takes Viktor to the mat. Gable ducks a lariat, waistlock, takedown, and another.

Viktor goes after Jordan and things break down. The Ascension dump both Alphas outside but they come back, head up top for diving lariats, then they clothesline them out of the ring as we go to break.

Back from commercial and Viktor has a reverse chinlock on Gable, grounding him. The Olympian fights to his feet and tries to escape but Viktor maintains wrist control and whips him hard into the turnbuckles. Tag to Konnor, assisted corner forearm into a jumping knee from Viktor gets two.

Konnor grabs a reverse chinlock now, Chad fights to his feet but gets dropped by a right hand from the Wastelander. He goes to the apron, Konnor follows... ARMBREAKER IN THE ROPES! Tag to Viktor, he picks Gable's leg to try and block the tag, Chad rulls past, tag made!

Jordan comes in hot, pop-up slam, cradle overhead belly-to-belly suplex on Konnor, overhead belly-to-belly on Viktor, tag to Gable, Jordan eats ringpost on a charge. Konnor tags in, District Line powerbomb connects... NO GOOD! Some dodging and diving, Alpha set it up...

American Alpha win by pinfall with Grand Amplitude on Viktor.

They celebrate with the titles when the Usos come up on the tron. They ask if they celebrated when they got laid out on Sunday and tell them when they feel that sinking feeling, it ain't paranoia, it's the Usos.

Backstage, James Ellsworth and Carmella are hanging out. Jimmy asks her out to dinner for Valentine's Day, but she wants to keep it professional. Dean comes up, still fighting mad for Baron Corbin, but he offers Ellsworth a nickel's worth of advice, telling him that Carmella's using him and he'd be better served by online dating.

Daniel Bryan rolls up, asking if there's a problem. Dean says there's a big one, Corbin. (And also, Jimmy is dressed like a schmuck, but that's his issue.) Ambrose asks if he can beat James up and Bryan says sure, he can make that happen. Ellsworth wonders aloud what just happened and Carmella tries to pump him up, saying he has a chance to beat Ambrose up!

Commentary puts Lynch/James over again and we go to break.

Back from commercial we get a bumper for Teddy Long's induction into the Hall of Fame.

Carmella and Ellsworth are in the ring. Jimmy asks the crowd to simmer down while he introduces his lady friend, so of course they boo and he takes offsense, saying her only boo is him. He's lucky to have her accompany him to the ring, because she makes his mind race and his heart sing.

He asks the crowd for a round of applause, so of course they boo.

Dean Ambrose's music interrupts, but he doesn't come out for a bit. Baron Corbin drags him out of the entryway! A knee takes Dean off the stage but he fires back with right hands, climbs a road case, diving forearm! CORBIN DEEP SIXES AMBROSE INTO SOME ELECTRICAL EQUIPMENT! SPARKS ARE FLYING!

We then get a recap of the backstage beatdown Natalya laid on Nikki Bella at Elimination Chamber. Daniel Bryan and Nikki are watching on a monitor and Bryan says it has to stop. Nikki asks what she's supposed to do, but Bryan has an idea and thinks she'll like it.

Nattie rolls up, upset, asking if she's getting a title match or something, but Dan says he thinks she'll like it, too. Bella and Neidhart bicker a bunch more... Nattie throws a forearm! Bryan calls security in to break it up and loses his mind yelling.

He's given them an opportunity and they want to fight everywhere but the ring? Well next week, they have a Falls Count Anywhere match!

Commentary gets some hype up for our triple threat main event and we go to break.

Back from commercial we get a recap of the Deep Six into the electrical gear from before the break.

The Lone Wolf runs into an interview and asks if she really needs an explanation. People can't be this stupid he says, explaining he's not WWE Champion. Why? Because Dean Ambrose. Now, Dean is going to the hospital. Why? Baron Corbin. 'Nuff said, true believer. Excelsior! (Okay, maybe he didn't say those last three words, exactly.)

Dolph Ziggler is interviewed backstage now. He's asked about being called a sore loser, and he says he's been sore and he's been a loser, but after Sunday, the only sore losers are Kalisto and Apollo Crews. What he did was a wake-up call to the younger generation. They all come from the same, sad place and think the same, sad thing.

They think they're here to replace him, but they're not. He's just getting started, and if he has to wipe out a single generation to get that point across, he will. Nobody steals the show like him, and nobody steals his place, but some people are about to get put in theirs.

Becky Lynch makes her entrance, so her rematch against Mickie James is up next after the break.

Back from commercial in time for Mickie's entrance.

Becky Lynch vs. Mickie James

Circling, collar and elbow, James with a wristlock, shift to a hammerlock, to a facelock, into a cover, back to the facelock, to a wristlock, to the hammerlock again and she finally shoves Lynch away. Collar and elbow again, Becky with a waistlock, into the takedown, facelock on the mat, back up, another facelock, shift to a hammerlock and she bridges over!

Mickie stands up in the hammerlock, back elbow gets her out of it, Lynch picks the legs, jackknife pin, looking for Dis-Arm-Her after the kickout, James gets the ropes and shoves her off. Shoving at each other on either side of referee Rod Zapata, Becky gets a quick roll-up, front chancery, into a backslide for one.

A shove knocks Mickie down, another and she heads outside for a breather. Back in the ring, knee to Lynch's gut, a forearm, whip reversed into a short-arm uppercut, pair of arm drags into an armbar for the Lass Kicker. Arm wringer, yanking the arm down, again, into the armbar, whip into the corner.

James to the apron, Becky kicks her to the floor and prowls around, charges in, double clothesline knocks both women down and we go to break.

Back from commercial and Mickie has Becky grounded with a neck crank. Lynch fights to her feet but James drops her with a mat slam for two and follows it up with a reverse chinlock with knee drops for good measure. Becky's getting fired up, clobbers her with lariats, two arm and a leg.

Solebutt, exploder suplex gets two, goes for a followup and Mickie bars her arm so Lynch gets a roll-up for two. Flapjack into a kip-up, Mickie James is feeling it. She goes up to the top turnbuckle, Becky dodges the dive, catches her with an overhead exploder suplex but it's only good for two.

Straight Fire forearm but James is covering up so she just kicks her. Struggle in the corner, a forearm to the back of the head knocks Mickie to the floor and she rolls around in agony. Becky picks her up and throws her in the ring, where referee Rod Zapata backs her off as he goes to check on James.

Mickie says she thinks she separated her shoulder but it was a ruse!

Mickie James wins by pinfall with the Mick Kick.

James taunts Becky as she backs up the ramp.

And after the break, Naomi will make us feel the glow.

Back from commercial we get a bumper for the Andre the Giant documentary HBO are making.

Renee Young and Naomi are already in the ring, where Renee congratulates her for winning the title. But on her way to her victory, Naomi got hurt, and she explains that she was on such a high from winning the title and getting the love from the WWE Universe that she realized she was hurt.

But she's been through this road before, torn tendons and a broken eye socket couldn't stop her, so nothing's taking the moment from her, and at WrestleMania, she'll bring the title home one way or the other.

Enter Alexa Bliss. She asks if the glow worm got a boo-boo before continuing, saying that everybody knows that Naomi lucked out when she beat her on Sunday, and when she woke up the next day and realized the pressure of being champion, she thought "I'm no Alexa Bliss." Which, well no one is.

So she concocted this injury to duck a rematch that she knew she wouldn't walk of with the title, or at all, even. She says Naomi won't feel the glow, just the feeling of being someone who flopped. But Alexa likes to turn a negative into a positive, and says Naomi could have her own 30 For 30: Lights Out, the Failure of Naomi.

But it's fine, because she can bring her whole family to WrestleMania, where they can see the REAL SmackDown Women's Champion, Alexa Bliss. Naomi calls her a flea and says she can still snatch her right here so don't play with her. Bliss tells her to calm down and says she's in a really good mood today.

Alexa tells her she has one week to either give her the title or lose her dignity in the rematch when Alexa snatches her and embarrasses her. Bliss limps mockingly up the ramp as Naomi holds the title above her head.

The triple threat for the WWE Championship is up next, after the break.

Back from commercial, we get a Black History Month bumper with a Nelson Mandela quote.

TJ Perkins is backstage to hype up his match against Neville on 205 Live tonight. He says Neville isn't his king and when he wins he'll be one step closer to putting the title in the hands of the man where it all began.

We get our main event entrances, first John Cena, then AJ Styles, and finally, the WWE Champion himself Bray Wyatt. But when the lights come back up, Luke Harper is standing next to him! He clobbers the champion! Big right hands! He throws his former leader into the barricade and plants him with a superkick!

We go to break, unsure what may happen with our main event.

Back from commercial and the match is in progress!

AJ Styles vs. Bray Wyatt (c) vs. John Cena (WWE Championship)

Cena hits the shoulder blocks on Styles, fall-forward Blue Thunder Driver, "You can't see me!" taunt but Bray yanks him out of the ring and throws him into the steps before he can go any further. AJ with a huge slingshot forearm smash, he takes Wyatt to the barricade and the apron, beating on him, but Bray shoves him back and heads back in the ring.

Big slap from Styles in the corner, shoulder thrusts, overhand right, Bray shoves him away but AJ kicks him to the mat and comes off the ropes with another big forearm strike. Punch, kick, off the ropes but Wyatt is ready and lays the Phenomenal One out with a shoulder before shoving him in the corner.

Big slicing rights, he throws AJ out of the ring and John is in and ready for him. Shoulder blocks, falling Blue Thunder Driver, "You can't see me!", Five Knuckle Shuffle, fireman's carry but Cean can't seal the deal. Bray hooks him for Sister Abigail, Styles hits Wyatt with the Phenomenal Forearm, Cena hooks AJ, up and over with the Attitude Adjustment... NO GOOD!

Cena and Styles to their feet, John sets him up top and knocks him to the apron with a punch. Bray in the crab walk, he runs over and snaps Sister Abigail off! STYLES BREAKS UP THE PIN! And we go to break with all three men lying in the ring.

Back from commercial and AJ Styles hits a splash off the barricade on Bray Wyatt, prone on the announce desk! He heads back up for a leg drop and the table breaks on the second try! Back in the ring, AJ readies the forearm but Cena catches him on the springboard and hits a second Attitude Adjustment! He rolls through for another but AJ reverses... CALF KILLER!

John rolls through and locks the STF on! Styles craws for the ropes but Wyatt breaks it up with a senton on both men! Bray heads around and throws AJ out of the ring, lying in wait for Cena to get up. In the corner, he's ready, hangs upside down but he walks over into an Attitude Adjustment... NOT ENOUGH!

Styles back in, kick to the gut, he's got Cena up... STYLES CLASH! CENA KICKS OUT! AJ rolls to the apron, shifting gears. Springboard, Cena runs into the ropes but Wyatt's right behind him...

Bray Wyatt wins by pinfall with Sister Abigail on John Cena, retaining the WWE Championship.

Bray celebrates with the title in the sea of fireflies.

Enter Randy Orton, conspicuous by his absence for the rest of the show. He walks down the ramp and stares at Wyatt a moment before heading into the ring.

He gets on the mic and says he won the Royal Rumble and all the privileges that come with it, but Wyatt is WWE Champion. However, as long as Bray is the master and he the servant, he refuses to face him at WrestleMania, pledging his undying allegiance to Wyatt!

The Eater of Worlds takes the mic as Orton gets on his knees. He says Randy has the keys to the kingdom before dropping the mic. The Wyatts pose together, and that's the show, folks.
