Today begins the reign of Bray Wyatt as WWE Champion after he captured Smackdown Live’s top title at the Elimination Chamber Pay Per View.

The leader of the Wyatt Family outlasted five of the brand’s top talents to take the crown – previous incumbent John Cena, The Miz, Baron Corbin and Dean Ambrose were all eliminated before Wyatt was left with AJ Styles one on one.

The two stood toe-to-toe in a strong finish but in the end, the Eater of Worlds came out on top.

The win sets up a WrestleMania showdown with Wyatt Family brethren Randy Orton, who earlier in the night triumphed in singles action against outcast Luke Harper.

Wyatt’s win wasn’t the only title change of the night. Naomi defeated Alexa Bliss to win the Smackdown women’s championship ahead of a return to her hometown of Orlando at WrestleMania in April.
