WWE Elimination Chamber 2022 Officially Announced From Saudi Arabia

WWE has officially announced the Elimination Chamber 2022 which is going to be their Premium Live Event in February. Following Royal Rumble 2022, it will serve as the next big WWE Network Specials for next month and the show will take place in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

WWE started hosting one of their two yearly big events in Saudi Arabia before Wrestlemania starting with 2020. After COVID-19 forced the company to miss the tradition, it appears that the schedule is back in the WWE PPV calendar. Going by the looks, Elimination Chamber 2022 is also likely to be the final premium live event before WWE hosts Wrestlemania 38 in April. In that case, there won’t be any WWE Network Specials in March similar to last year’s December.

In an announcement from WWE, it was noted that WWE will return to Jeddah, Saudi Arabia on Saturday, February 19 for the Elimination Chamber 2022 event. The infamous steel structure will return at a new venue built in 2021 named the Jeddah Super Dome.

Elimination Chamber 2022 to take place at a new venue

Billed as the world’s largest pillarless Superdome, the venue will serve as a great host to the special event. A media report from last year noted that the dome can hold 5200 vehicles, but that note didn’t include the number of seats. WWE previously hosted their shows in Jeddah from the King Abdullah International Stadium.

“The Elimination Chamber 2022 show complements the commitment of the General Entertainment Authority to provide the most famous international events and entertainment shows. This show was preceded by several previous partnerships with WWE to present international shows in the kingdom, which achieved remarkable local and international success, including the recent WWE Crown Jewel show in Riyadh Season 2021 and WWE Super ShowDown in the previous Riyadh Season in early 2020,” the note in WWE’s announcement included.

WWE and the Saudi General Sports Authority announced in 2018 a 10-year strategic multiplatform partnership to support the Saudi Vision 2030 initiative, Kingdom’s social and economic reform program. Per the deal, WWE was bound to host two shows in the country, per year but the COVID-19 pandemic forced to miss one shows each in 2020 and 2021. Elimination Chamber 2022 will be the seventh overall event in that partnership program.

WWE Smackdown Superstar Requests His Release From The Company

WWE Smackdown Superstar Mustafa Ali took to Twitter to request his release from WWE. The company hasn’t confirmed anything regarding his status while the superstar himself informed the news with the following statement,

“I have a message that is much bigger than my dreams in pro wrestling,” the WWE Smackdown Superstar wrote. “Despite my best efforts, I will not be able to deliver this message while working with WWE.
“Therefore, I am requesting my release from WWE.”

An update from Fightful noted that inquiries were made about Ali’s WWE status since he has been absent from TV in recent weeks. It was noted that Ali asked for only one show-off for paternity leave but he has not featured on WWE programming since November 2021. It led people within the company to believe that his paternity leave was eventually extended. But it appears that a lot of other reasons reportedly led to this extended absence from WWE Smackdown.

Ali has been kept off WWE Smackdown since late 2021

In the first week of December 2021, a vignette was filmed for Ali with the “New America” gimmick on WWE Smackdown, but he hasn’t been pitched anything new to portray. The “New America” idea was apparently canceled because the higher-ups in the company were in doubt of whether that gimmick would be successful or not.

Vince McMahon wanted “something Mustafa Ali would never have done” instead of the usual character portrayed by Ali. This reportedly led to a “heated argument between the two” and the WWE star hasn’t been attending shows since. This is one of the reported reasons that the Pakistani star allegedly wanted to get released.

Ali was signed by the WWE in 2016 to wrestle in the Cruiserweight Classic. He last wrestled on the October 29, 2021, episode of WWE SmackDown, losing to Drew McIntyre. Ali then took time off for paternity leave last November and welcomed his third child. But no proper arrangements were done to ensure his return.

During an episode of WWE The Bump, Ali claimed that “I think I’m the most unheard voice in the history of WWE. With zero hesitation in my voice, with no flinch whatsoever, I will say pound for pound, I am the most underutilized talent in this company’s history. Does that put it into perspective for you?”

Royal Rumble 2022: Roman Reigns Possibly Dropping WWE Universal Championship

It’s been 2 years since WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns has been pinned in a match on TV. Ever since his return back at Summerslam 2020, he was built as a top heel force in the WWE that’s similar to Brock Lesnar back in the days. The two were eventually supposed to collide in a huge main event match at WWE Day 1 which was pulled off.

Roman Reigns tested positive for COVID-19 prior to WWE Day 1, which resulted in his Universal Title defense against Brock Lesnar getting canceled. Lesnar was then added to the WWE Championship match, thus making it a Fatal 5 Way match also featuring Big E, Seth Rollins, Kevin Owens, and Bobby Lashley. Lesnar would eventually go on to pin Big E to win his sixth WWE Championship.

Now the popular belief is that Roman Reigns vs. Brock Lesnar should happen in the main event of Wrestlemania 38 in a Champion vs. Champion encounter. Now, WWE loves to surprise their fans with major changes in their plans and Wrestlemania could be no different. This calls in for a major title change to happen at Royal Rumble 2022.

Seth Rollins to stop Roman Reigns’ undefeated streak

It was teased on SmackDown, last week that RAW Superstar Seth Rollins would be challenging Roman Reigns for the Universal Championship at The Rumble. Recent reports also claim that the former Shield brethren may end up dethroning The Tribal Chief for the title at the upcoming show.

Dave Meltzer revealed on Wrestling Observer Radio that WWE is planning to make Seth Rollins the next Universal Champion at Royal Rumble. Brock Lesnar, who is set to face Bobby Lashley for the WWE Championship, is likely to retain. This indicates that Roman Reigns will face The Beast Incarnate at WrestleMania 38 and that match will happen for the WWE Title, instead.

“The plan for Day 1 was that Seth was gonna be the WWE Champion coming off of the show and Lesnar was gonna be the Universal Champion coming off of the show. So Lesnar is now the WWE Champion. Seth was going to defend the title on one of the WrestleMania nights and then Lesnar and Roman were gonna be for the other title on the other WrestleMania night,” said Meltzer. (quotes courtesy Wrestling News)

Rollins was reportedly set to win the WWE Championship at Day 1 while Roman Reigns was supposed to lose the Universal Title. The plans were changed after the latter was diagnosed with COVID-19. Now the big title change has been pushed back to Rumble, it appears.

WWE Smackdown: Facts About Roman Reigns Becoming Longest-Reigning Universal Champion

As the clock hits 12 AM tonight, Roman Reigns will officially become the longest-reigning WWE Universal Champion in the history of the company. As of today, he reaches the 503-day landmark previously set by Brock Lesnar. Tomorrow, he reaches the 504th day of his title reign to set up a benchmark record in the WWE.

With this, Roman Reigns will become the longest-reigning world champion (counting the WWE, the WWE World Heavyweight, and the Universal Title) in WWE history of the modern era. Previously, CM Punk held the record as he held the WWE Title for 434 days which was broken by Brock Lesnar.

He held the Universal title since Wrestlemania 2017 to Summerslam 2018 for 503 days. Interestingly, he also lost that belt to Roman Reigns, himself. The biggest criticism about that title reign was that Lesnar used to be a part-time performer during that reign.

Over that 503 days, he only defended that title on seven occasions: Against Samoa Joe at Great Balls of Fire; against Roman Reigns, Braun Strowman, and Samoa Joe in Fatal-4-Way at Summerslam 2017, against Braun Strowman at No Mercy, against Braun Strowman and Kane in a Triple Threat at Royal Rumble 2018, against Roman Reigns at Wrestlemania before finally dropping the belt to Reigns at Summerslam 2018.

As for Roman Reigns, this longest reign is his second reign with the Universal Title which began on August 30, 2020, at the WWE Payback PPV, by defeating “The Fiend” Bray Wyatt and Braun Strowman in a Triple Threat Match. He hasn’t been pinned in over 2 years as his last pinfall loss was in December 2019 at the hands of Baron Corbin.

WWE Wrestlemania 38: Four Top Championships Matches Revealed For The PPV

Wrestlemania 38 is that particular show about which WWE is making plans way ahead of time. Recent reports suggest that the company already has plans for four top title matches at the biggest PPV of the year.

A new report has been released by the Wrestling Observer Newsletter which revealed the two top men’s matches at Wrestlemania 38 which would be Brock Lesnar vs. Roman Reigns for the WWE Universal Title, and Seth Rollins defending the WWE Title against anyone from Big E, Bobby Lashley or Kevin Owens.

Roman Reigns got pulled from WWE Day 1 due to COVID-19, and thus his scheduled title match was also canceled. Lesnar won the WWE Title after being added to the match to make it a Fatal 5 Way. Heyman got also reunited with Lesnar on Raw.

Reports also hinted that Rollins was scheduled to win the WWE Title at Day 1 but then plans changed and Lesnar went on to become the new champion. It was noted by The Observer that Rollins would go on to become the new Universal Champion and his WrestleMania 38 opponent would’ve been the Royal Rumble 2022 winner. At this point, Big E seems to be the favorite to win that match and face Rollins at the Show of Shows.

Top Women’s division matches for Wrestlemania 38

As for the top women’s title matches at WrestleMania 38, the original plans are Sasha Banks vs. SmackDown Women’s Champion Charlotte Flair, and Bianca Belair vs. RAW Women’s Champion Becky Lynch.

Lynch is currently scheduled to defend her title against Doudrop at the Royal Rumble. Doudrop defeated Belair and Liv Morgan in a number-one contender’s match on RAW, this week. Lynch interfered and took out Belair from the equation which opens up another potential rematch with Belair, a bout that is possibly going down at WrestleMania 38. This also makes Belair the current favorite to win the Women’s Rumble match to solidify her challenger’s spot to Lynch.

The appearance on WWE Smackdown by one of the all-time greats took place in order to proceed with the builds for Royal Rumble 2022 edition which will go down with a star-studded lineup. Lita will be one of those names who received a huge pop upon showing up on WWE TV from the fans in attendance of the CHI Health Center in Omaha, Nebraska.

The Hall of Famer declared that she has one run left in her and hence she wants to win the 2022 Women’s Royal Rumble match to go on to challenge for a Title at WrestleMania 38. WWE SmackDown Women’s Champion Charlotte Flair interrupted her promo and wondered how Lita will deal with the humiliation after she loses to her at the Royal Rumble match.

This was the night after Evolution where she and WWE Hall of Famer Trish Stratus defeated Alicia Fox and current Impact Knockouts Champion Mickie James at Evolution.

WWE Smackdown: Aliyah Sets New Record Against Guinness World Record Holder Natalya

WWE Smackdown, this week will go down in the history books as the show featured the shortest match in the entire history of the company. More importantly, a newbie clinched the record against a woman who’s been boasting about his world records for the past several weeks. It was fitting that someone taught her a lesson for good.

As per the earlier announcement for WWE Smackdown, Aliyah and Natalya were scheduled to compete in a singles capacity. Megan Morant had a backstage interview with Aliyah before the match. She asked if Aliyah is nervous before heading into the ring as the match also marked her singles in-ring debut on the main roster.

Aliyah said how she dreamed about getting into the WWE ring since she was a little girl. Now she got to do that against Natalya, who is a Triple Crown winner in WWE. Aliyah hoped to put up a good show after which Natalya showed up to boos from the WWE Smackdown audience. She was also carrying a Guinness Book of World Records.

Aliyah stated that she didn’t know if the Guinness Book existed for real to make Natalya angry.

The referee was about to rule that Aliyah cannot compete, but she begged to start the match. As soon as the match bell rang, Aliyah immediately rolled up Natalya for the quick pin to win in seconds.

WWE Smackdown Preview (14/01/22): Seth Rollins Confronts Roman Reigns

In the absence of a couple of top superstars on WWE Smackdown, a top Raw name has been sent to be the challenger of the reigning champion. Seth Rollins is the handpicked name who will now be appearing on the blue brand to confront Roman Reigns in the headliner segment of the show. We also expect more announcements related to Royal Rumble PPV when tonight’s show takes place from the CHI Health Center in Omaha, Nebraska.

Roman Reigns was originally scheduled to defend his Universal Champion against Brock Lesnar on Day 1 PPV. But he tested positive with COVID-19 and hence pulled off the show. Lesnar was added to the WWE Title match instead, making it a Fatal-5-Way who eventually ended up winning the bout. Thus Lesnar also became the reigning WWE Champion.

Rollins entered the suite and had a brief staredown with Reigns. Rollins started laughing as Reigns seethed, to send the first WWE SmackDown of 2022 off the air. It was then announced on Raw that Rollins vs. Reigns will indeed take place at Royal Rumble 2022.

Rollins and Reigns have not featured in singles action against each other on TV since the October 11, 2019 edition of WWE SmackDown. Rollins won that match by DQ while he also defeated The Tribal Chief for the WWE World Heavyweight Title at Money in the Bank 2016. Now the two will once again be under one roof to renew their rivalry in time for Royal Rumble.

The PPV got hyped up, last week as WWE SmackDown Women’s Champion Charlotte Flair announced that she will be in the Women’s Rumble Match, and will go on to WrestleMania 38 to pick her own challenger.

Flair doesn’t have any rivalry ongoing over her title, at the moment which is why she’d be entering the Rumble. Last week, she defeated Naomi in a Championship Contender’s match which came after multiple distractions by Sonya Deville. This, in turn, will continue the beef ongoing between Naomi and Deville.
