We bring you live coverage for the episode of WWE SmackDown airing on February 9, 2024.
The show beings with Triple H, Adam Pearce and Nick Aldis in the ring. Triple H says it feels we are on the Road To WrestleMania. Last night in Las Vegas, it was an incredible kickoff event to get us started on that road to the grandest stage of them all. Somewhere last night, they took a hard left turn, and that road is on fire.
It feels really good, but he wants to clear up one thing. He feels like there was some confusion in the air. Maybe some people don’t know their role. So, he wanted to come out here and set the record straight. Some tried to assert their authority, when they don’t really have any, because he doesn’t really care where you sit, there is one thing that is clear, whether people like them or not, the answers come from one place only. And right now, you are looking at him.
Let him just say this. In the main event at WrestleMania XL, Roman Reigns will defend his Undisputed WWE Universal Championship against Cody Rhodes. Now, there are some people back there that will be disappointed. They might not like that decision, but it doesn’t matter that you don’t like the decision.
Welcome to the Road To WrestleMania. Nick Aldis shifts the attention to Seth Rollins and the World Championship. They have collectively agreed that he will be challenged at WrestleMania by the winner of the Elimination Chamber. We kick things off tonight to determine the participants in that match. And to reiterate the fact that WWE management is a united front.
Adam Pearce directs us to the tron to show us the competitors in the Elimination Chamber: Randy Orton, Bronson Reed, Kevin Owens, Logan Paul, AJ Styles, The Miz, Bobby Lashley, Ivar, Drew McIntyre, Sami Zayn, Dominik Mysterio, and LA Knight.
LA Knight joins the team at the commentary table for the next match.
#1. [Elimination Chamber Qualifier] Drew McIntyre vs. AJ Styles – Winner: Drew McIntyre
Sami Zayn says nothing is certain in WWE, especially at this time of year. He doesn’t have time to get emotional about what happened last year. He has an opportunity to get to the Elimination Chamber tonight, but he has to get through Randy Orton. It is not an easy battle, but it is a path, and he will take it.
Pretty Deadly are taking some quality time away. They get winked at by Queen Elizabeth from heaven. Elton Prince says it is their time to shine on the Road To WrestleMania. Are they ready? YES BOY!
#2. [Elimination Chamber Qualifier] Bianca Belair vs. Michin – Winner: Bianca Belair
