WWE's Elimination Chamber pay-per-view is here and the entire WWE Universe is buzzing about a few of the matches on the card. Most people are discussing the six-man tag match between The Shield and SuperCena and Friends, the World Heavyweight Championship No. 1 Contender Elimination Chamber match, the World Heavyweight Championship match between Del Rio and Big Show and the WWE Championship match between The Rock and CM Punk. 

But what about the other matches? 

Including the YouTube pre-show, there are three matches that are being overshadowed by the bigger matches. 

If you, dear reader, don't have much interest in these matches either, then fear not! For I'm here to tell you how the lesser matches will play out so you don't even have to waste your evening watching them. 


YouTube Pre-Show: Team Robo-Funka-Albert-Dactyls vs. Team Rhodes Scholars

The new hilarious tag team of Tensai and Brodus Clay will take on Team Rhodes Scholars, who are making a special one-night appearance for the WWE's YouTube pre-show match. 

This one has all the makings of a new tag team's coming-out party. While Tensai and Brodus appeared to be the WWE's next biggest comedy act, it looks like they might actually be taking this thing seriously...well, you know what I mean.

With Team Rhodes Scholars teaming up for just one night, it certainly wouldn't make a ton of sense for them to win a tag team match. 

Let the burying of Sandow and Rhodes commence. 

Prediction: Team Robo-Funka-Albert-Dactyls will beat Team Rhodes Scholars in hilarious, dance-y fashion. 

Note: All uses of hilarity in the previous section are completely and totally sarcastic.


Divas Championship Match: Kaitlyn vs Tamina Snuka

Another match that no one is putting much thought into is the Divas Championship match. After the loss of Eve, the Divas Division of the WWE has all but disappeared on Raw and SmackDown, which is pretty apparent in this feud. 

Kaitlyn is...OK in the ring, and Tamina seems to be WWE's favorite filler for Divas feuds. The fact that WrestleMania 29 is right around the corner leads me to believe that the WWE is going to go with this pairing for the Divas match on the card, which means Tamina probably won't get the victory at Chamber. 

Prediction: Kaitlyn retains by hitting her finisher after Tamina misses a Snuka Splash. (Does Kaitlyn have a finisher?)


United States Championship Match: Antonio Cesaro vs. The Miz

The final forgotten match that we'll look at has potential to be one of the best of the night. 

Cesaro has shown that he's a force to be reckoned with in the WWE's midcard, and The Miz has all the tools and skills of a top talent in the business. 

Both men are deserving of a victory, but this one needs a little more time to stew with the WWE Universe. We've seen a little bit of buildup over the last few months, but another great pay-per-view match will make this feud really shine going into WrestleMania.

Prediction: Cesaro retains the U.S. Championship in one of the closest matches of his reign. Miz will be extremely close to a victory before Cesaro, for one of the first times, uses dirty tactics to keep his belt, pouring more fuel onto this feud's fire.
