WWE taped this week episode of 'Smackdown' last night and made several additions to the pay per view event Elimination Chamber on February 23rd. If you want to watch this week's Smackdown (Fridays 7pm C/ 8pm E on SyFy) with no spoilers, do not read the rest of this story.
On this week's 'Smackdown' there is matches qualifying the winners for the spots in the Elimination Chamber match for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship, Antonio Cesaro defeated Dolph Ziggler and the returning Christian defeated Jack Swagger. Cesaro and Christian join Daniel Bryan, John Cena, Sheamus and the reigning champion Randy Orton inside the Chamber.
In a rare appearance on 'Smackdown', WWE corporate authority Triple H addressed the Shield who failed to qualify for the Chamber when they lost a six man tag team match against Bryan, Cena and Sheamus this week on 'RAW'. He announced a speicial faction vs. faction six man tag team bout pitting the Shield of Roman Reigns, Dean Ambrose, and Seth Rollins against the Wyatt Family of Bray Wyatt, Erik Rowan, and Luke Harper at the Elimination Chamber PPV.
Pro Wrestling Examiner's Perspective: This PPV event is notable as it will be the last WWE pay per view event before WWE launches it's digital subscription service, WWE Network on Monday February 24th. This story interesting considering that CM Punk walked out on WWE on Monday, and it's interesting to see what his role would have been at this event if he stayed with the company.
