WWE Elimination Chamber 2017, Phoenix, Arizona.
Pre Show Results.
Mojo Rawley def. Curt Hawkins
Becky Lynch def. Mickie James
Really good back and forth match, both getting adequate time to exhibit their skills, Mickie looking great on her return to the WWE main roster. Majority of the match controlled by James with Becky rallying late to earn the victory.
Apollo Crews & Kalisto def. Dolph Ziggler
Apollo Crews entered first, Kalisto comes out but is blindsided by Dolph Ziggler. A one on one match concludes, really quick in ring action, slightly confusing as it’s two faces taking on one heel? (WWE 2017 for you) Previously hurt Kalisto limps to the ring and aids Crews, the tag team Ziggler and Crews claims victory with an impressive Powerbomb. Post Match, Dolph again gets a cheap shot on Kalisto, he then proceeds to brutally attack Apollo with a chair, placing it around his ankle and stomping on it twice. Audience chant “Thank You Ziggler”

American Alpha def. The Ascension to retain the Tag Team Titles
Exciting, fast and action packed Tag Team Turmoil match, American Alpha booked to look strong after suffering attack from the Uso’s. Good match but overall it once again exposes the huge flaws in WWE’s tag team division, much work is needed before AA find a worthy opponent for Wrestlemania 33.
Nikki Bella Vs Natalya. Double Countout
Slow start but the match had a really slow build feel to it, more wrestling based than I imagined it would. Natalya dominated for long periods, Nikki had flourishes where she rallied. Nikki mounts a comeback but is stopped with a big Superlex from the second turnbuckle, Natalya locks in the Sharpshooter. Nikki reverses into a Fearless Locks (STFU), Nattie gets to the ropes. Action spills outside, ten count ends the match after competitors don’t return to the ring.
Natalya attacks Nikki post match, Nikki Bella fights back and sends Nattie running.
Randy Orton def. Luke Harper
Standard Orton match from the get go, he really seems to have settled in to a move set which isn’t going to change at all, completely devoid of any excitement. Back and forth at the start with Randy then controlling the middle of the match with the dreaded chinlock, audience is quiet. Harper rallies and fires back with a Senton and Big Boot, close two count. Harper flies through the second rope to take out Orton at ringside, backdrop by Harper on the announce desk, Randy recovers to hit a Scoop Powerslam. Huge Superplex from the top turnbuckle from Orton, the match is finally warming up, as it the crowd. Slug fest between the two, Orton hits a Full-Nelson Slam out of nowhere. Draping DDT on the ropes, Randy calls for the RKO, two huge Superkicks from Harper, Orton kicks out of pin. Big Powerbomb from Luke Harper, another kick out from Orton, close call. Both recover, Orton hits an RKO for the win.
Naomi def. Alexa Bliss – WWE Women’s Championship
Alexa starts off disrespecting Naomi, the challenger fights back. really good back and forth with both cancelling each other out. Naomi with an impressive array of kicks, Bliss fights back with underhand tactics. Really exciting, hard hitting match, Bliss looked good throughout but they allowed Naomi to shine. After what looked like a few mistakes Naomi hit a Split-Legged Moonsault to become the new SDLive Women’s Champion.
