Fandango vs. Santino Marella: How many times must we see these two face off? I care less and less every time this match happens. It was essentially the same exact thing we saw last week on Raw, so I don't see what purpose it was supposed to serve. What's even worse is that Emma is being wasted away in a comedic act with Santino instead of being utilized as a wrestler.
Jack Swagger vs. Kofi Kingston: Both guys are better than this, honestly. Swagger isn't all that interesting on his own, so I don't blame the live crowd for not caring at all. Not only that, but Kingston scored much more offense over Swagger than he should have considering Swagger will be contending for the Intercontinental Championship on Sunday.
Big E vs. 3MB: Unlike Swagger and Kingston, this one-sided squash dragged on much longer than it should have. It was also quite sloppy, as there were several spots were both members of 3MB could have been seriously injured due to poorly executed spots. Zeb Colter shouting at Big E during the bout didn't help matters, either, and overall, it didn't have me looking forward to his upcoming title defense against Swagger.
Dolph Ziggler vs. Titus O'Neil: The fact that Ziggler is a directionless lower midcarder at the moment shouldn't come as a surprise to anyone, but I still can't get over the fact that he needed help beating O'Neil of all people. Sure, it might help O'Neil in a way, but Ziggler's win was quickly overshadowed in all the silliness with the former Prime Time Players. It is nice to see the feud between O'Neil and Darren Young get a little love on SmackDown, but it hasn't been exposed to the Raw audience at all, which will explain the silence during their match at Elimination Chamber.
Cameron vs. Aksana: I applaud WWE for actually putting some thought into this match, as it was Aksana who put Cameron's best friend Naomi out of action with an eye injury a few weeks back. So, on paper, this match on paper made sense. In the ring, though, it was painful to watch. Although Cameron has improved leaps and bounds from where she was two years ago, she still isn't capable of holding her own in the ring. The match didn't last long, thankfully, but it made me miss Naomi that much more.
