WWE Elimination Chamber 2014: Undercard Bouts Fans Deserve to See
When you have a pay-per-view that has a themed match with the exact same name, attentions can often drift away from the rest of the card.
Take the last show the WWE hosted, the Royal Rumble. The hype is all about the marquee Rumble match, with the undercard sometimes taking more of a backseat than it does at other shows.
However, this time around, there are some matches that fans will be very interested in as the Elimination Chamber pay-per-view approaches.
But which undercard matches do the fans deserve to see? Let's take a look.
AJ Lee vs. Natalya
They are arguably the two biggest and best Divas on the roster—and by some considerable distance. It's about time the WWE reignited their rivalry and the two Divas have a real showdown for AJ Lee's Divas Championship.
With three weeks still to run until the Elimination Chamber pay-per-view, there is still enough time in the tank for the company to make it happen.
Enough of the five-on-five Diva match every single week on Raw. It's time for the company to treat the women's division seriously and find a real rivalry in advance of WrestleMania 30.
If Lee should drop her belt to anyone in the near future, the only real person it can be is Natalya.
Big E Langston vs. Damien Sandow
Big E has been an excellent holder of the Intercontinental Championship, and his best rivalry to date was arguably with Damien Sandow.
It was a simple yet engaging rivalry that really showed what Sandow could do when he isn't been reduced to gimmick matches.
It is a real shame that Sandow hasn't really had anything substantial in terms of a storyline since then—especially when you consider the fact that he was wrestling for the World Heavyweight Championship not so long ago.
You would imagine Langston and Sandow could yet again raise the bar should they be given a chance to show what they could do.
New Age Outlaws vs. The Usos
As good as Cody Rhodes and Goldust have been for the tag division, their time as No. 1 contenders should really be coming to an end.
They have a steel cage match on the forthcoming edition of Raw against the New Age Outlaws, which you would imagine they will lose.
That would leave a new team with an opportunity to go forward and challenge—step forward, The Usos.
They have been outstanding over the last few months and played a real compelling role in the Daniel Bryan vs. Bray Wyatt feud.
They seem to keep churning out wins week after week, so why not give them a shot? The crowd seems to dig them enough.
Batista vs. Brock Lesnar
This one could well be a bit of a fantasy match, but after the Chamber lineup was completed without either man involved, could it happen?
You could even add a stipulation in where the winner would go on to face the WWE World Heavyweight champion at WrestleMania 30. That would certainly ramp up the interest from WWE fans, as they seem determined for Batista not to be there.
His return to the company has been incredibly sluggish—despite him winning the Royal Rumble—and fans would be keen on seeing him step in the ring with Brock Lesnar.
Again, it may not happen, but the fans deserve to see it.
The Shield vs. The Wyatt Family
This would certainly be one of the most anticipated matches in a long time—forget the Elimination Chamber.
Many have wanted for The Shield to go at it with The Wyatt Family since WWE teased it a couple of months ago—and it looks like we may get our match in a few weeks.
After Bray and his family cost The Shield a spot inside the Elimination Chamber match, Roman Reigns and company will be seeking revenge.
If it gets as far as the match being made, WWE fans will certainly be excited to see it.
