‘WWE SmackDown LIVE’ Results: Several Matches Added To ‘Elimination Chamber’

This week’s SmackDown LIVE was primarily focused on Sunday’s PPV, with John Cena, Randy Orton and undoubtedly Bray Wyatt involved in the main event, while the rest of the Elimination Chamber Match contestants competed in a Fatal 4-Way to begin the show.

NOTE: The WWE SmackDown LIVE, 205 Live and Talking Smack results were updated here in real-time as the shows aired live, along with available video highlights and commentary. Any updates to the upcoming WWE Elimination Chamber 2017 card were be posted here as well.

WWE SmackDown LIVE Results

The following includes the results of all the matches and segments from SmackDown LIVE, 205 Live, and Talking Smack on February 7. SmackDown LIVE finally defeated Monday Night Raw in the ratings during the last week of 2016, but hasn’t won again in 2017. Will the last episode of network WWE television before Elimination Chamber 2017 be enough for Shane McMahon and Daniel Bryan’s show to defeat WWE Raw in the ratings once again?

Baron Corbin defeated AJ Styles, Dean Ambrose, and The Miz

After The Miz and Maryse interrupted General Manager Daniel Bryan during the opening segment of this week’s SmackDown LIVE, they were all eventually joined by Intercontinental Champion Dean Ambrose, Baron Corbin, and AJ Styles. After everyone said their piece about the Elimination Chamber Match on Sunday, Daniel Bryan booked a Fatal 4-Way Match as the first bout of the evening. Per usual, complete chaos broke out towards the end before Corbin picked up the win and the momentum headed into Sunday’s main event.

Tom interviewed Nikki and Natalya

From the announcer’s table, Tom interviewed both Nikki Bella and Natalya, who were supposedly coming in via satellite in different locations. They were kept apart so that they wouldn’t attack each other yet again before their match at Elimination Chamber on Sunday.

Apollo Crews defeated Dolph Ziggler

When it started to look like Dolph Ziggler was going to get a fairly quick win over Apollo Crews, his opponent reversed a super-kick and rolled The Showoff up for a surprise pinfall victory. Ziggler attacked Crews after the match, which brought out Kallisto. However, Ziggler eventually laid both of them out with a chair before going back to the locker room.

Later, Daniel Bryan ran into Ziggler and booked him in a Handicap Match against Crews and Kallisto at Elimination Chamber.

Becky Lynch, Mickie James, Naomi and Alexa Bliss brawled at the Contract Signing

In the first-ever “dual contract signing,” SmackDown Women’s Champion Alexa Bliss and her No. 1 Contender Naomi signed the contract for their title match on Sunday alongside Becky Lynch and Mickie James doing the same. Per usual, the contract signing, hosted by Renee Young, broke out into a fight. This time, Lynch and Naomi got the upper hand, giving both of them momentum heading into Elimination Chamber on Sunday.

The Ascension, The Usos and The Vaudevillans defeated American Alpha, Breezango and Heath Slater & Rhyno

Ahead of Sunday night’s Gauntlet Match, all six teams were thrown into a 12-Man Tag Team Match. Predictably, the match broke down towards the end, leaving most of the competitors laid out at ringside. It was The Ascension that were credited with the pin when the match was all over.

John Cena defeated Randy Orton

Even with Bray Wyatt at ringside and the referee taking a bump, The Wyatt Family couldn’t get the job done on SmackDown LIVE. While the referee was out, Luke Harper came to the ring to get some revenge on Bray and Randy, assisting Cena with his victory.

Talking Smack on the WWE Network

Renee Young and Daniel Bryan co-hosted the post-SmackDown talk show, spending most of their time promoting Sunday’s Elimination Chamber PPV. Their first guest was Nikki Bella, and as soon as she started talking about her drama with Natalya, the Queen of Harts interrupted and attacked Nikki.

Their second guest of the night was Baron Corbin, who appears on the show more frequently than any other guest. Of course, he came on to talk about his victory in the Fatal 4-Way Match and the Elimination Chamber Match on Sunday night. The final guest on Talking Smack was John Cena, who was also there to hype Elimination Chamber 2017.
