Smackdown Live's Elimination Chamber PPV has concluded and a new WWE Champion was crowned at the end of the event.

The question remains is if the new WWE Champion will be able to hold on to his belt heading into WrestleMania 33.

The main event was held in a newly designed Elimination Chamber.

It was John Cena defending his belt against AJ Styles, Dean Ambrose, Bray Wyatt, Baron Corbin and The Miz in a very entertaining main event that went as long as 35 minutes.

It was a match that was great from beginning to end.

The new design of the chamber itself is a welcome change. They have ensured the safety of the wrestlers by putting some padding on the outside in lieu of just metal panels.

Not to mention they used safer glass panels on the outside of the pods. As a result of the new additions, the wrestlers were able to do more than just wrestle inside of the ring.

AJ Styles was by far the MVP of this match as he lasted the full 35 minutes and did most of the spots. The biggest loser of this match was definitely The Miz.

The Miz didn't really do much of anything and got eliminated quite quickly even though he entered last. John Cena eliminated him with only one Attitude Adjustment.

However, Baron Corbin was eliminated first after Dean Ambrose rolled him up. Corbin hated the cheap roll-up and absolutely destroyed Ambrose afterwards.

Ambrose was pinned after that. Due to these two scuffling, it's possible they are going to face each other at WrestleMania 33 for the Intercontinental Championship.

The final three of the match were John Cena, AJ Styles and Bray Wyatt. All three men looked impressive in this match and did a lot of cool spots.

The next person to be eliminated was actually Cena of all people. Wyatt pinned Cena after hitting him with Sister Abigail. Cena losing cleanly is actually a rare sight in WWE.

With Cena gone it was down to Styles vs Wyatt. Styles looked like a babyface during this time even though both him and Wyatt are heels.

The crowd didn't care as they were basically cheering for both men to win. After all, everyone was happy Cena was gone.

Styles and Wyatt put on a good show, but in the end it was Wyatt that won with Sister Abigail again. I really wanted to see AJ Styles vs.

Randy Orton at WrestleMania 33, but Wyatt is still a worthy opponent.

It's also worth mentioning this is the first time Wyatt has won the WWE Championship. The man has finally reached the top after getting booked quite poorly over the last three years of his WWE career.

The PPV ended with Randy Orton staring into the eyes of Bray Wyatt. This is expected to be the WWE Title match at WrestleMania 33, although there are seven more weeks to go until that event happens.

It will be interesting to see if it remains a singles match between these two as John Cena is entitled to a rematch clause.

I also think Styles is entitled to a rematch clause too. WWE could add them in the title picture, although it's unlikely to happen as they have other plans for Cena and Styles at the moment.
