WWE SmackDown Tag Team Title #1 Contendership Tournament Final Match
Braun Strowman & Ricochet vs. Imperium (Giovanni Vinci & Ludwig Kaiser) (w/Gunther)

 An odd tournament thank god finally comes to an end. Ricochet and Strowman are fun together as a tag but I just don’t see them being a force against the Usos. Especially because it was them over teams like Imperium or random team ups like Drew and Sheamus. This itself was a fun match though with some good spots. 

3 / 5

WWE SmackDown Women’s Title Match
Charlotte Flair (c) vs. Sonya Deville

A mediocre match that needed finished before Wrestlemania for the story going. Sonya doesn’t do enough to be a threat really and this was just a showcase for Charlotte really. 

2 / 5 

Tag Team Match
The Viking Raiders (Erik & Ivar) (w/Valhalla) vs. The Brawling Brutes (Butch & Ridge Holland)

Another solid match building the Raiders towards Elimination Chamber. Some good spots here but odd having Sheamus move off the Brutes and towards Drew instead. 

2.5 / 5

Elimination Chamber Qualifying Fatal Four Way Match
Natalya vs. Zelina Vega vs. Shayna Baszler vs. Shotzi

Natayla being in here and winning is such a drag. Sure she’s the vet of the group but the crowd isn’t with her in the slightest. 

2 / 5
