WWE SmackDown Results – February 12, 2019
We begin with a graphic In Memory of Pedro Morales.
We are in Toledo, Ohio and your announcers are Corey Graves, Tom Phillips, and Byron Saxton.
We see Vince McMahon’s comments last night from Raw when he replaced Becky Lynch in the Raw Women’s Championship Match with Charlotte Flair and that is apparently the new TitanTron video for Charlotte, who makes her way to the ring.
We are told that a member of the New Day will replace Mustafa Ali in the Elimination Chamber Match.
Charlotte says that it has been her destiny to be in this match. She says her heart breaks for Becky, but it really does not. Charlotte says she thought Becky was taught not to get suspended. Then she dropped the ball before Survivor Series. Who did Becky choose when she got hurt? She chose Charlotte so the myth of the Man could continue. Charlotte says she is the backbone of this division and the franchise player. Charlotte says she is a winner.
If you think that she is Mr. McMahon’s favorite, that is not the case. He chose her because it was a smart business decision. He chose a future Hall of Famer over someone who had a few good months. Mr. McMahon chose her because the main event of Wrestlemania is the biggest match of the year and you are not going to waste it on a flash in the pan like Becky Lynch. You might not like the decision, but Wrestlemania will be like every other pay per view that she main evented. You will be chanting This Is Awesome.
Charlotte says to boo her now because you are welcome.
Charlotte says she wants to dedicate her history making victory to her best friend . . . Becky Lynch.
Charlotte says she has a front row ticket for Ronda’s match at Elimination Chamber. Maybe we will have a new champion and she will have a new Wrestlemania opponent.
We see the New Day in the locker room trying to figure out who goes into the gauntlet match.

He has not been medically cleared for the Elimination Chamber on Sunday and he will not get to wrestle for the WWE Championship. He says this is not the end.

Miz and Shane welcome everyone to tonight’s episode of McMiz TV. It has made them the best tag team in the world and the Smackdown Tag Team Champions. Last week, the Usos sent a strong message.

Jey pulls the mic out of Miz’ hand and he tells Miz to do everyone a favor and shut up.
Jey says to call yourselves the greatest tag team in the world is an insult because of who you are standing in front of. They welcome Shane and Miz to the Uso Penitentiary.
Shane says the only thing that is real is the title belts. They will look real nice around their waists after the Usos go down at Elimination Chamber.
Jimmy and Jey give Shane and Miz super kicks.
The Usos walk in the back as we go to commercial.
WWE Champion Daniel Bryan and Erick Rowan make their way to the ring. Daniel says he knows there are a lot of people who want to see him lose his title on Sunday. The truth is, you’re lying to yourselves. You are all fickle and you need someone like The New Daniel Bryan to show you how to live your pathetic lives. You need him as WWE Champion. Daniel says he does not want to participate in the Elimination Chamber Match because it is painful, it is horrible, and it will likely shorten his career. Daniel says he has to sacrifice. Daniel does not want to be called a martyr, but his sacrifice is necessary.
