Two nights after the Royal Rumble, the 911th edition of WWE SmackDown LIVE came to you, live, from the American Bank Center in Corpus Christi, TX. At the Royal Rumble, it’s fair to say that SmackDown LIVE had a banner night with SmackDown LIVE Superstar and Wyatt Family member Randy Orton last eliminating Roman Reigns in the 2017 Royal Rumble Match to win the Rumble and earn himself a match for the WWE Championship at WrestleMania! Speaking of the WWE Championship, history was made at the Royal Rumble as John Cena was able to defeat AJ Styles in a show-stealing title match to not only win the WWE Championship, but win his sixteenth World Title, tying the legendary record set by WWE Hall of Famer Ric Flair nearly seventeen years ago! However, there will be little rest for “The Champ” as John Cena has to look ahead to a week from this Sunday at WWE Elimination Chamber when he defends the WWE Championship inside the demonic Elimination Chamber against five to-be-named opponents. Will we find out more about the WWE Championship Elimination Chamber Match on SmackDown LIVE?
