Friday's edition of WWE SmackDown was a newsworthy one as two new matches were made for the upcoming Elimination Chamber pay-per-view that play into each other.

Early in the night, Paul Heyman revealed to Adam Pearce that Universal Champion Roman Reigns is contractually obligated to defend the title at the PPV and would do so that night against the winner of an SmackDown-focused Chamber match. To thwart him, Pearce added his cousin Jey Uso and heated rival Kevin Owens to the match with the other four qualifying during Friday's show in a pair of tag team matches.

After those matches, the final Chamber field of Owens, Uso, Daniel Bryan, Cesaro, Sami Zayn and King Corbin was set.

Also on the show, Seth Rollins returns and later tried to injure Cesaro's knee, Big E defended the Intercontinental Championship against Shinsuke Nakamura, and Bianca Belair came out to confront Women's Champion Sasha Banks before they were interrupted by Women's Tag Team Champions Nia Jax and Shayna Baszler, potentially setting up a match for the Chamber.
