As always, here are some bonus questions for our readers:
Which match should be added to the card?
Eric Kanes: I'll go with Jack Swagger vs. Brodus Clay for the US title. Obviously that's not going to happen because they've already given up on Brodus for whatever reason, but why not?
I bet a lot of the people reading this don't even know that Jack Swagger is US champion, as he hasn't even been on RAW since winning the title. Something like this would give both guys and the US title a much-deserved PPV spot.
Geddy Cahoon: SOMETHING with Jack Swagger. He's the US champ, and he's been slumming it on Superstars ever since he won the freaking belt. It's goddamn ridiculous.
Dave Scott: Would have added a a tag title match in here: maybe a four team tag match. Epico and Primo, Hunico and Camacho, Curt Hawkins and Tyler Reks, and The Usos. Give all the teams a little bit of PPV experience and show that the tag titles still mean something.
George Cushnie: I’m begging someone to make the mid-card titles mean something again, which means they should be defended on every PPV. These titles were just as important in the 80s and 90s as the WWE/World Heavyweight Title and they should be again.
An Intercontinental or United States title run would usually mean that the champion was being groomed for a main-event run at some point. Nowadays, it seems like there’s more importance associated with winning the Rumble or MiTB than there is with winning a mid-card title.
Then again, there’s no point adding a match for these titles if there’s not a credible feud to back it up. Getting back to the question, they could’ve done a match here with Jack Swagger and Sheamus as a “Brand Challenge” match or have Primo/Epico defending against The Usos.
Gregory Bitetzakis: Why is Sheamus not in a match? He should be in a feud setting up his match at WrestleMania. I do not care who he faces he just should be in the spotlight after winning the Royal Rumble, and the fact that he is not just blows my mind.
Put him in a match with Mark Henry and let them brawl, that would work. Just something with Sheamus, that is all I ask.
Adam Behan: The U.S. title and Tag Team titles have looked so poor lately, not even making Raw programming. To make it up, a six man tag match where all titles are on the line would be great. The champions Jack Swagger, Epico and Primo versus "The Funkasaurus" Brodus Clay and The Usos.
A match with these stars would get to show us some high flying skill, some technical wrestling, some power moves, and be just generally fun. Unless championships are defended on major PPVs, they become meaningless and that is poor for the future.
I would book the match so Swagger pins/submits Jey Uso after dirty tactics on Epico and Primo's behalf. On a side note, I would book Drew McIntyre to take Santino out and participate in the chamber match in his place.
Liam Hindmarsh: I said it during the Royal Rumble predictions. The tag team champions need exposure on live television. Primo and Epico should face The Usos. Just give them 10 minutes and let them put on a show. The tag division is never going to grow if the WWE won't allow it to grow.
The tag team championships are pretty much worthless at this moment in time. It won't do any harm to feature the champions on a PPV to try to bring a little bit of prestige back. It's going to be a long road to revive the tag division, but WWE has to start somewhere.
Which match will steal the show?
Eric Kanes: It's got to be the RAW Elimination Chamber match. All six guys work at a very fast pace and are just great workers in general, so I can't wait to see how it goes down.
Geddy Cahoon: Probably that RAW chamber. It's got the best workers in WWE right now in it. SmackDown usually steals these ensemble matches (MiTB and 2011 Chamber) but I think it's RAW's year this time, as we're surely in for an awesome Jericho/Punk showdown.
Dave Scott: Most definitely the Raw chamber match, without a doubt. Has all the ingredients to make a brilliant match. Will have high-flying spots, near falls, dodgy decisions, and I'm sure some kind of controversy involved!
George Cushnie: This is probably the easiest question of the year; the RAW Chamber match will steal the show. Each of the performers is a top-class athlete and four of them have already been either a WWE or World Heavyweight Champion.
The only ones who haven’t are Truth and Kofi. The RAW Chamber match will be the closest one because each of the guys is a credible main-eventer and they’re all more than capable of stealing the show. I’ll be REALLY surprised if this match isn’t four stars or more.
Gregory Bitetzakis: I hope the Divas match gives us something different than usual, but I think the CM Punk vs. Chris Jericho vs. R-Truth vs. The Miz vs. Kofi Kingston vs. Dolph Ziggler Chamber match will steal the show.
They have many great wrestlers in the match and Chamber matches always entertain me. I hope they give everyone an opportunity to shine and we see a great finish.
Adam Behan: I am going to go where the star power is and choose the Raw Elimination Chamber match. Jericho and Punk's rivalry will heat up inside of the cage and get fiery enough to make the crowd go wild. Both are big faces in the eyes of the WWE Universe.
I foresee Kofi being the talking point afterwards because I am just sitting here thinking about what that man could do in a cage. He has performed marvellously in ladder matches and who can forget the Kofi Kingston Rumble handstand? He will shine brightly at the end of this match and will hopefuuly go after the U.S. belt.
I would love to talk about what Ziggler and the Miz may do; however, I feel both of these men aren't in WWE's good books and cannot win. R-Truth is just going to be a quacky quacky weirdo who will hit big moves, make us laugh, and eliminate Miz eventually.
This match will be remembered more than the rest, purely due to star power alone. The other matches just do not interest me in comparison.
Liam Hindmarsh: This is a pretty simple answer. The Raw chamber will steal the show. As I said earlier, it's the strongest match on the card. Chamber matches are rarely bad and with the people in it and the feuds within it, we have a quick guy in Kingston who will provide the high flying spots.
Miz and Truth both want a piece of each other and Punk and Jericho are both claiming to be the best in the world. I expect to see a fast pace with plenty of action which is sure to keep the fans happy. Something spectacular will have to happen in the other matches to upstage this one.
Will you be ordering this PPV?
Eric Kanes: Yes. The Chamber matches are usually always quality, so I'm looking forward to seeing them.
Geddy Cahoon: Nope. Not enough build, weak card, it's a transitionary PPV, take your pick really. There's nothing enticing me to drop 45 bucks here, especially right after I got the Royal Rumble three weeks ago. It's not realistic for WWE to expect anybody to do that.
Dave Scott: No. But only because I'm not going to be at home for the weekend. Going away for a lads weekend down south to get my drink on for three days straight so instead of watching this, I'll no doubt be passed out somewhere in a pool of blood, sweat and urine, well I can only hope. Haha!
But regardless of if I was here or not, Sky Sports are showing this one as a non-PPV so I would have got to watch it without paying the PPV costs anyways.
George Cushnie: I don’t really want to answer this question, haha! Technically, I won’t be ordering it because, for all of the readers in the UK, we’re actually getting this PPV for free on Sky Sports 1 at 1 a.m. on Monday morning. It really annoys me that WWE has the audacity to charge its US & Canadian fans $40.00 for a four-match PPV (and they wonder why their buyrates are so low?).
If this was on Sky Box Office in the UK, there’s no chance in hell that I’d be ordering it, but because we’re getting it for free, then I might Sky+ it and watch it before next week’s RAW.
Gregory Bitetzakis: I believe it will be a usual guys night to watch the PPV, order Domino's, and drink beer. I am looking forward to this PPV and they seem to always throw us a curveball before WrestleMania, so I will absolutely check it out.
Adam Behan: No, no, no, no, no, no. This is just a repeat of the Royal Rumble except in a cage. No title changes, a poor build, and a weak card have set my decision in stone. Unlike the Royal Rumble, I will not change my mind last minute and order it for $35. Just too much to pay for a rubbish PPV.
Liam Hindmarsh: No, I won't be ordering this PPV. Being in the United Kingdom, this is one of the shows that we get for free. It's a good little deal seeing that Elimination Chamber is usually one of the stronger PPVs WWE puts out each year. If it wasn't free, I still would probably buy it.
The two chamber matches sell the show and with an interesting ambulance match, it could be a good show. I have optimistic hopes going into this show and hope to be pleasantly surprised.
This is the final stop before WrestleMania so the WWE needs to pull a good show out, to carry on the set up going in to WrestleMania.
That's all for today, folks. Make sure to leave us feedback to let us know what you think. Until next time, I'm out!
