One hour later, at 8:00 p.m ET, the main show will start.
Naomi is pictured on the red carpet prior to the WWE Live event at O2 World on April 15, 2015 in Hamburg, Germany. As the match continued, you saw a possible Wrestlemania storyline develop: after Baron Corbin was the first elimination by Dean Ambrose, Corbin snapped, effectively destroying the Intercontinental Champion and ending his hopes of being a dual champion after a pin by Miz. Afterwards, the Usos had a message for American Alpha. The Usos v. The Ascension vs. Breezango vs.
Mojo Rawley vs. Curt Hawkins (Kickoff Show): Do you seriously care?
-Apollo Crews and Kalisto beat Dolph Ziggler.
Meanwhile, Becky Lynch will be looking for revenge against Mickie James who cost her the WWE Women's SmackDown title when she took on Alexa Bliss in a steel cage match on SmackDown. There will be plenty of opportunities for Lynch to get wins back on SmackDown. He said although he won the Royal Rumble, since Wyatt is the master and he is the servant, he refuses his match at WrestleMania and pledges his allegiance to Bray Wyatt. One of the key storylines on this season of Total Divas on E! was Brie Bella's retirement match at WrestleMania past year. The wins by Naomi and Wyatt were well-deserved and really added to the show. The Ascension tries to come back, but American Alpha shuts them down after hitting the Grand Amplitude on Viktor for the win after a short but competitive match. All three matches delivered in some fashion. Even though this was generally expected by those who are up with internet rumors, to see the Wyatt Family's patriarch actually do the damn thing, after so many years of never quite reaching the top, felt sensational. That's a great long-term feud, one that should reach its apex at WrestleMania, but it would do damage to Alpha to lose the belts so quickly. John Cena lost his title in the Elimination Chamber, getting pinned by eventual champion Bray Wyatt, and Alexa Bliss lost her title to Naomi.
In a hard-fought victory, Randy Orton managed to reign supreme over his former brother Luke Harper. Who is going to take this: the Royal Rumble victor or third wheel in a group that is presently splintering or broken up, depending on the week? By being a true fabric of WWE's most lucrative quarter, not only will social media impressions and WWE subscribers remain stellar, but sales of Elimination Chamber-related merchandise-like the Elimination Chamber playset which retails for $69.99 at Toys "R" Us-can bolster WWE's wide variety of consumer products. Second, and most importantly, Bray Wyatt defeated five other Superstars to become the new WWE World Champion. Once Randy Orton won the Rumble, Bray Wyatt winning was nearly a certainty. And let's be honest: That sounds like a pretty good match, though probably one that will wind up fourth or fifth on the card. I always thought that Last Man Standing match vs. Cena was Wyatt's best match ever. I feel that Ziggler could do extremely well off a win, although they seem to be pushing the "being bad doesn't make you win matches" lesson that Lawler tried to teach.
