Wedged between the Royal Rumble and WrestleMania, the Elimination Chamber is constantly battling for fans' attention, money and energy. Every fan knows that the two biggest shows of the year are going to deliver.
The Elimination Chamber?
That's a riskier proposition. Some pay-per-views can feel like they are merely an extended version of WWE Raw, shows that are more about continuing the narrative leading into 'Mania than they are about delivering a great broadcast.
This year, that wasn't the case. This show delivered in a major way and set the stage for what should be a great WrestleMania.
Wrestling, of course, is complicated. A performer can lose a match but steal the whole show. Likewise, a winner can fail so badly in the ring that he loses ground in the company hierarchy and gets pushed down the card. The official winners and losers are merely written down. The real winners and losers are written in your heart and soul.
