Wow. Well, for a show they had two weeks to make a worthwhile card for – they actually kind of did it. As much as they should’ve just made Battleground be Elimination Chamber instead, this show seems like it’ll be at least good. From what I’m expecting out of this show, it could be one of the better shows of the year.
Neville vs. Bo Dallas
While I certainly don’t mind the callback to NXT Airrival last year, I feel like this is probably the least relevant match so we’ll start with it. Honestly I don’t have much to say about it – it should be a decent match. I’m just wondering why Neville isn’t in the IC Title Chamber match.
Triple Threat Match for the WWE Third Rate Women’s Championship
Nikki Bella (c) vs. Paige vs. Naomi
It’s finally happening, guys. The end of the reign of terror is here. Nikki Bella is finally going to lose the title she should’ve never won. There’s no reason for the belt to be on her when the story is no longer even about her. The story here is now between Naomi and Paige. She’s not even relevant in the match she’s going to lose the belt in. Obviously they want to go with the Paige/Naomi feud, otherwise what’s the point. They didn’t make this match for nothing to happen. The Nikki Bella title reign ran its course months ago – its peak was A.J. and Paige destroying them at Mania. Nothing more can be done. And while I’m hopeful it will be Paige that wins it, it will probably be Naomi which is fine.
Elimination Chamber Match for the WWE World Tag Team Championship
(c) New Day (c) (Big E and Kofi Kingston) vs. Uppercats (Cesaro and Tyson Kidd) vs. Lucha Dragons (Kalisto and Sin Cara) vs. The Ascension (Viktor and Konnor) vs. Los Matadores (Fernando and Diego) vs. Prime Time Players (Titus O’Neill and Darren Young)
Well this is going to be perhaps the most interesting match of the night. I’m excited to see what can come of this match. And I’m fine with almost all outcomes – the only teams I’d have a problem with winning are the Matadors because no one cares and the Prime Time Players who shouldn’t even be in the match considering Luke Harper and Erick Rowan was an option and they teamed back up again two weeks ago for obvious reasons of being in this match and alas where are they?
Prediction: New Day
Elimination Chamber Match for the Vacant WWE Intercontinental Championship
Bad News Barrett vs. Dolph Ziggler vs. Rusev vs. Sheamus vs. Ryback vs. R-Truth
As for the more traditional Chamber match, I don’t know. It’s not the best group of people that could be involved. I’ve already mentioned Neville should’ve been here. R-Truth, I don’t know what hole he keeps crawling out of whenever multi-man IC Title matches happen and he doesn’t belong. Ryback loses to Bray Wyatt at Payback but ends up in this match and Wyatt isn’t on the show. Rusev I don’t care. Barrett’s had this title 5 times and it got him nowhere. He won KOTR because reasons. Dolph should never win this title again and focus on the World Title. So that leaves Sheamus as the best option and that’s whom I think will win anyway.
John Cena vs. Kevin Owens
This is easily the most intriguing match on the show, by far. It’s non-title, so there’s a chance Owens will win. But I’m not sure that’s where it will go. I don’t think Owens is just going to lose because what benefit would it do? They need to do something with this match – Owens doesn’t necessarily need to win but he shouldn’t just lose, either. If they can have him Powerbomb Cena on the apron like he’s done to many people on NXT and have the match end like that, I think that’s the best option.
Prediction: No Contest
WWE World Heavyweight Championship
Seth Rollins (c) vs. Dean Ambrose
I needn’t remind you of how awesome their feud was last year, so we know this is going to be an awesome match. So, what if Dean somehow wins and loses it back in two weeks at Money in the Bank? Can we do that? Because that would be awesome.
Prediction: Seth Rollins
Overall I’m very much looking forward to this show. It should be good.
