WWE Smackdown! Results: Things Heat Up For Elimination Chamber
Just then, Wade Barret's music hits and he heads toward the ring to a chorus of boo's. Barrett thanks Sheamus for the heart-warming story. He says that he somewhat respects Sheamus, but he's going to tell him what to do. Barrett says that Sheamus needs to go for the WWE championship, because Barrett will be the World Heavyweight title when he wins the Smackdown! Elimination Chamber match. Barrett reminds Sheamus that he has beaten him before and if he had to beat him at WrestleMania, Sheamus would be remembered as a pasty-faced, ginger, Irish loser.
Sheamus laughs and says that he wasn't really listening as he was thinking about Randy Orton beating Barrett all around the ring last week. Barrett then begins to respond but he's interrupted by the Intercontinental champion, Cody Rhodes. Rhodes says that what Barrett was about to say isn't important as Cody actually knows what it's like to be victorious at WrestleMania. He also knows what it's like to be a current champion. He also says that, unlike the audience, he doesn't have the urge to cry every time he looks it's in the ring. After entering the ring, Cody Rhodes mentions that this match is his match to win. He then tells Sheamus that he will go down in history as the man that lost to the very first duel Intercontinental and World Heavyweight champion.
Just then, The Big Show's music hits and out comes the seven foot giant. Show states that he respects Sheamus and says that Sheamus isn't the type of person to tell someone what to do so he'll do it for him. He then tells Cody to shut his mouth before he slaps the taste right out of it. The Big Show doesn't promise that he'll win, he just wants Sheamus to think about The Big Show vs. Sheamus in the main event at WrestleMania. Barrett then says he's trying to be polite, but he reminds Big Show that Snooki has a more successful career at WrestleMania than he has. Cody then mentions that Giants can win the Super Bowl, but not matches at WrestleMania. Rhodes then calls The Big Show the reverse Undertaker, asking Show who he was going to lose to this year. The boxer? The sumo wrestler and is cut off when The Big Show delivers a thunderous chop to the chest. With the strike, a brawl ensues with Show taking Rhodes out and Sheamus taking out Wade Barrett.
We are treated to an Elimination Chamber promo during the commercial break. After the break, we get breaking news. Later tonight, Barrett and Rhodes will team up to face Royal Rumble winner Sheamus and The Big Show.
As Jinder Mahal, walks to the ring for his match with The Great Khali, an interview package is shown with Mahal stating that after he beats Khali tonight, he will demand that he takes his place in the Elimination Chamber. Then, Khali's music hits and the man makes his way down to the ring. Jinder demands that Khali lay down for him and when Khali refuses, Jider slaps him across the face. Khali, only angered by the shot, clubs Jinder, knocking him flat. Jinder takes control momentarily, however, and begisn to wear down his foe. After a few shots, Khali then regains control of the action, tossing his opponent around and nailing him with clotheslines. After Mahal gets up, Khali ties him up and nails the Punjabi Nightmare, getting the pin-fall victory.
