Elimination Chamber went down this past Sunday, crowning two new champions for the blue brand. But there’s no rest for the wicked, as SmackDown’s new top star already has a challenger for his new crown.

John Cena invokes his rematch clause to reclaim the WWE Championship from Bray Wyatt tonight. Bray pinned both Cena and former champ AJ Styles to claim the victory inside the Elimination Chamber, and with Randy Orton still in his corner–for now–it seems Bray still has the whole world in his hands.

We’re expecting Bray to take the title all the way to WrestleMania, but there’s no reason to expect anything but greatness from the one-on-one contest tonight. The Cena/Wyatt feud was a highlight of WWE’s 2014, and the pair had some excellent matches.

Another new champ was crowned this Sunday with Naomi, who defeated Alexa Bliss to claim the SmackDown Women’s Championship. Alexa will want a rematch, but there’s a whole division of female stars who’ll also want a chance at the title. Expect the division to shake out some new story directions tonight.

We’ve also got the Intercontinental Championship. While Dean Ambrose didn’t defend the title last night, a whole lot of beef did get started between him and Baron Corbin, who’s looking like a likely contender for that title. But then, that field is wide open, with both Miz and AJ Styles as possible opponents while we wait for their WrestleMania plans to get sorted out.

SmackDown hits the Honda Center in Anaheim, CA tonight, broadcast live as always on the USA Network at 8PM Eastern/7PM Central. We’ll have live coverage of everything as it happens, so stick with us for all the news, here and on Facebook!
