WWE Elimination Chamber 2012 Results: John Cena vs. Kane Was Waste of Time

Gabe Zaldivar@gabezalPop Culture Lead WriterFebruary 21, 2012

Finally, somebody was taken by ambulance from the Elimination Chamber, hopefully putting an end to what was an utter waste of time. 

If this is truly the end of Kane and John Cena and a feud that was sparked in the winter, then it was nothing more than fluff and filler that could have been better used elsewhere. 

Kane was better than this, and so is John Cena. Instead of changing the landscape of Cena, his image and how the fans treat him, the status quo was maintained. 

I don't know why I thought something remarkable was in store for us on the other side of this Kane story arc. Perhaps it was The Rock, a mountainous man and a legend of WWE, that loomed in the near future. 

Maybe it was that particular showdown between a legend and a John Cena that continued to lose ground with fans. There was no way things could continue like this, right?

Kane came from hell and asked Cena to embrace the very thing he was not, and Cena came out looking goofy at the end of it all. 

The Ambulance Match at the 2012 Elimination Chamber was a letdown, just like every thing else Cena touches nowadays. I don't fault him, not for something that was written just to waste time until WrestleMania.

You could almost sense the eyes that began to roll when Cena flipped the script on Kane and defied certain loss. Kane was finally beaten and sent into the back of the ambulance, presumably never to be seen feuding with Cena again. 

Cena came away from the Elimination Chamber a winner and was all smiles, back to his old self again. Any edge he may have garnered in the last couple months was absent with his exuberant stance after dismissing of Kane. 

Nothing changed. 

Now we head to WrestleMania with little hope that Cena might come into the ring a changed man from the moment he took on the challenge to fight the People's Champion a year ago. 

It seems it was never the plan to spice up Cena, because that would have been just too awesome if they did.
