Tonight was the return of the Elimination Chamber and what a return it was. I love the Chamber matches and pay-per-view and tonight they proved why they are so phenomenal. Before I begin here the results:
-Pre-Show- Stardust vs. Zack Ryder
-Elimination Chamber Tag Team Title Match- The New Day defeated Cesaro/Kid, Los Matadores, Lucha Dragons, The Ascension, and Prime Time Players to retain the tag titles
-Triple Threat Divas Title Match- Nikki Bella defeated Naomi and Paige to retain the Divas Title
-Kevin Owens defeated John Cena
-Neville defeated Bo Dallas
-Elimination Chamber Match for the Vacate WWE Intercontinental Championship- Ryback defeated Mark Henry, Dolph Ziggler, Sheamus, King Barrett, and R-Truth
I absolutely loved the tag team Elimination Chamber match but you have five legitimate tag teams and WWE dropped the ball on giving the tag team division more rivalries over those titles. I know they are trying to go with the heel heat with The New Day and build it up to where when they get beat it’s going to be huge. I think tonight would have been great to have the Dragons or Players win the titles. Hopefully this match sparked the tag team scene into the spotlight again,
I love how the Divas are getting more time and being more aggressive. I honestly thought Naomi was going to be Divas Champion but they have obviously have bigger plans for the Divas Championship. I am so happy that Kevin Owens won cleanly. They just build their next mega star with that victory. I am absolutely static for the future of WWE. Finally the WWE did something smart by putting over a great young superstar like Kevin Owens. I was really shocked that Mark Henry returned to replace Rusev in the Elimination Chamber match for the Intercontinental Championship. I was also really shocked that new Intercontinental Champion is Ryback, Thought for sure Ziggler, Barrett or Sheamus would walk away with the title.
The Main Event for the WWE Title was a good solid wrestling match. Both Rollins and Ambrose are awesome performers. I absolutely loved the swerve at the end of the match. It built up for more of a story. Elimination Chamber was a great show. It makes wish for more WWE Network exclusives. In two weeks, Money in the Bank is taking place and the future of the WWE. Until then take in what you saw at Elimination Chamber!
