WWE Elimination Chamber: Match Card + Predictions
Hi guys I'm going to be bringing you my predictions and match cards for Pay Per Views and the results after the Pay Per View. The first Pay Per View I'm going to give my view on is The Elimination Chamber.
This is the Pay Per View before WrestleMania 26 and the wrestling world has been buzzing about this pay per view as it does have a huge effect on the main event matches of WrestleMania, which is by far the biggest Pay Per View ever.
Feel free to post your predictions and comments.
Divas Championship Tournament Final
This match was set up by The Divas Championship Tournament which was set due to former Divas Champion Melina getting injured.
This isn't a bad match up the creative team had set up, as it was obvious Maryse would walk through the competition and they knew they couldn't hold back Gail Kim from the push she deserves.
Now let's look at the competitors:
Maryse: Maryse has held the Divas Championship before. She gets more camera time on RAW than Gail Kim or any other diva and seems to be a favourite heading into this match.
Gail Kim: She has the experience factor in this match and has been successful in WWE and TNA. Since she's come back, she hasn't been given the push she deserves and this Sunday hopefully it could happen.
Final Prediction: Although I would like to see Gail Kim, win the Creative Team always seem to be behind Maryse, so I'll have to go with Maryse walking out with the title.
Intercontinental Championship Match
This match was made quite quickly and hasn't had enough hype to get us excited.
The Intercontinental Championship is supposed to be the second most valuable championship which can automatically get you in the World Title hunt at times.
But now it's just a championship; however, I think the prestige of this championship will be higher after this match. Now let's look at the competitors:
Drew McIntyre:This guy is on a big roll right now. It would have been nice to see him in the EC match but this move by the Creative Team can show how good Drew really is.
Kane: Kane oh Kane we know he isn't going to win a World Title anytime soon, so if you put in a championship match for a title he's already held against a guy who is slowly being pushed up to main event status and won't lose in a match anytime soon, do you think the Creative Team will let Kane win after putting him in pointless match ups which he walks over every week? I don't know about you but I don't think so.
Final Prediction: I have given up all hope on Kane right now especially with The Creative Team so I'm going with McIntyre to retain.
WWE Championship Elimination Chamber Match
This is the match that has caused a lot of tension and debates because they're guys in here who we don't wanna see walk out champion, guys who are vital to make other matches at WrestleMania and guys who haven't developed enough for a WrestleMania matchup.
Now let's look at the combatants:
Sheamus: A guy who causes so much heat that guys would rather have Cena as champ. People do not want him to win because he hasn't been given enough promo time and hasn't beaten major names. But I've seen that Sheamus has become the biggest heel on RAW right now.
We've seen more promo time given to him and he's getting more involved with big names like Orton and Cena. The Creative Team seem to really like this guy.
Cena: If everyone doesn't wanna see Sheamus headlining WrestleMania and want a star power WrestleMania then root for Cena. But wait one teensy weensy problem CENA HAS HEADLINED 5 YEARS IN A ROW!
And you all know how much we hate Cena as a champion and we want him in as much involvement with Bret Hart as possible.
Orton: It would be good to see Randy as champ but not now. He dominated the main event scene last year and we want to see Legacy break up and in order for that to happen, we need Ted to eliminate him at EC and have Cody turn on him too to make it a handicap match at WrestleMania so that Randy wins and really shines.
Orton is a key element to a grudge match at WrestleMania.
Kofi: A lot of guys want to see Kofi in main event level but I don't think so. The Jamaican gimmick gave him better mic skills than he's got now.
If we're gonna see Kofi as WWE Champion it should be after cashing in a briefcase not headlining. I'm not saying Kofi can't do it but not this year.
Triple H: This guy is the most important element to saving us from a match then giving us a good match. I don't know about you but I don't want to see a HBK VS Taker II and I don't wanna see Triple H headline WrestleMania for a ninth time.
So if HBK can't get to Undertaker he should build on the heat he has with Triple H and should culminate to a HHH VS HBK match at WrestleMania which can steal the show unlike HBK and Taker trying to repeat their classic last year. Triple H, another key element.
DiBiase: It seems that Ted is on a roll right now with his dad being inducted to the Hall Of Fame and his new movie and his great form on RAW lately. But to be honest I don't think Ted is ready for a WrestleMania main event matchup yet.
I wanna see him and Cody take on Randy in a handicap match which can build amazing promos and excitement for the event as we need as much star matchups as possible.
Final Prediction: If we get Cena, we get Cena VS Batista, HHH, HHH VS HBK, Kofi, who knows?, Dibiase, Orton, Orton, Dibiase and Rhodes. Sheamus, probably Christian taking his title and for him to be taken seriously as a main eventer, I'm rooting for Sheamus.
World Heavyweight Championship Elimination Chamber Match
Out of this match we have a man who Edge would challenge no matter what Raw's result is and will definitely steal the show, we need a new champion to avoid a rematch.
No matter what the outcome SmackDown will have the final match of the evening once again at WrestleMania. Let's look at the competitors:
Undertaker: Okay, he's had a good reign but we kind of need him not to be champ for a good main event and we need to get him to avoid Shawn Michaels, which seems highly unlikely, so in the end Undertaker should lose the World Title.
Morrison: John Morrison: ANKLE INJURY! Morrison: ROCKSTAR DVD. OH JOHN HAS TO BE WORLD CHAMP OTHERWISE HE LEAVES. OF COURSE HE HAS TO WIN, HE'S GOT A DVD!
I know there's pressure for John to win but he's better on the mic as a heel than a face so I think Morrison needs to get his mic skills as good as they used to be and I don't know who he could face at WM, so not yet.
CM Punk: Punk is an amazing athlete but I think he's gonna go at it with Rey at WrestleMania.
Jericho: The best wrestler in the world next to Kurt Angle now in my opinion and if the creative team misses out on Jericho's abilities again like last year THEY'RE REALLY GONNA REGRET IT.
Mysterio: The Master Of The 619 will make the kids happy if he wins, but we need him to face CM Punk at WM for a classic match up.
R Truth: Truth is a former two time NWA World Heavyweight Champion so although we definitely know with his mic skills, charisma, crowd reaction and past accolades this is not the last we've seen of Truth in a World Title Match and mark my words one day he will become a World Champion.
Final Prediction: I'm going for Chris.Straight Up. He's on the roll of his life and he and Edge will be a match that we'll never forget, so the WWE creative team should make the rivalry bigger than it already is and The World Heavyweight Championship will do just that.
