Spoilers For 2/18 WWE SmackDown

The go-home show before the Chamber

The February 18 broadcast of WWE SmackDown was taped last night in New Orleans, concurrently with the live broadcast (for travel reasons, due to Elimination Chamber taking place next Saturday in Jeddah).

The following segments were taped for next week's broadcast (all spoilers courtesy F4WOnline):

* A confrontation between Roman Reigns and Goldberg opened the show. Nothing physical took place, and the two simply exchanged words to hype their Universal title match at the pay-per-view.

* Ricochet defeated Sheamus

* Sami Zayn defeated Shinsuke Nakamura to win the Intercontinental title. WWE has already announced the title change on their social channels.

* Ivar defeated Jimmy Uso

* A promo segment with Drew McIntyre, Madcap Moss, and Happy Corbin

* Extended promos for both the Chamber match and Universal title match

* The taping ended with a contract signing featuring Ronda Rousey, Naomi, Charlotte Flair, and Sonya Deville, ahead of their tag match at the pay-per-view. Adam Pearce presided over the signing. Both sides trashed each other until Rousey threw the SmackDown Women's title at Flair. This facilitated a brawl that ended with Rousey and Naomi standing tall.
