Tonight’s episode of SmackDown will be the final event before WWE’s Elimination Chamber pay per view. As such, the show will kick off with the latest address from Royal Rumble winner Edge.
Edge will kick off the show and will come face to face with Universal Champion Roman Reigns. This could be a preview of WrestleMania should Edge choose to face Reigns after Sunday. Here is the official preview of tonight’s segment from WWE.com:
“Last week, 2021 Royal Rumble Match winner and WWE Hall of Famer Edge declared that he will not make the decision as to which World Champion he will face on The Grandest Stage of Them All until after WWE Elimination Chamber this Sunday.
This is a decision that certainly did not sit well with Universal Champion Roman Reigns. Just days before The Rated-R Superstar’s announcement, The Head of the Table demanded that Edge acknowledge him as the main event of WrestleMania. Instead, The Big Dog was hit with a surprise Stunner courtesy of his adversary Kevin Owens.
Will Edge now come face-to-face with The Head of the Table en route to Sunday’s SmackDown Elimination Chamber Match, a career-altering contest where the winner will challenge the Universal Champion on the same night?”
SmackDown will also feature a six-man tag team match with the Elimination Chamber participants. Kevin Owens, Daniel Bryan and Cesaro will team up to take on Sami Zayn, King Corbin and Jey Uso.
