Yes, I watched the Pay-Per-View. What did I think? Well you'd better continue to read this article to find out.
The first thing I would like to point out is the Divas match. I think that this division either needs a revitalisation or it needs to be destroyed, permanantly. Kaitlyn or AJ Lee seem to be the people that would start the division in the right place. When the cameras looked at the onlooking divas in the back, watching both Kaitlyn and Tamina fight, we only saw Natalya, Naomi, Cameron & Arksana. Where is Alicia Fox? Isn't she still employeed within WWE, and AJ Lee wasn't present, though, she was seen later in the night during the Ziggler VS Kofi match. The match itself hadn't been hyped. One small beatdown from Tamina, who, I might add, lost a match during that same week against Naomi & Cameron. Seriously, what the hell.
Next, we go to the Brodus Clay & Tensai match. I didn't watch it, because it was in the pre-show, but I heard what happened, and seen screenshots in the PPV. I think this team has the ability to behead Team Hell No!, and after what happened in the chamber, that might be sooner than you'd expect. The promos that these guys create are outstanding, and Tensai's remarks are hilarious.
I was suprised by the tenacity of the Antonio VS Miz match for the United States Championship, and this is where I make an astounding comparison to the Shield VS Ryback, Cena, Sheamus match. Listen, and think carefully to this. The Miz was disqualified from the match because his knee supposedly hit Cesaro in the groin. The referee didn't see it, therefore, the match should not have ended, and it was Cesaro who forced Miz down into that position. From the replay, I didn't think it even touched it, but rather it touched the leg. Now, in a tag team match, when the superstars interfere when they are not the legal man, and continue to fight, doesn't that usually result in a disqualification. That did not happen during the 6 man tag match. The Shield came in, and dominated the playing field. Seth Rollins, who pinned Ryback with a spear to win, I am 99% sure, wasn't even the legal man. Ryback stormed off after the match, so he might turn heel. What do you guys think about a heel Ryback?!?
I loved the Del Rio VS Big Show match. It was entertaining, and I was on the edge of my seat. I wasn't, however, on the verge of screaming during the Ziggler VS Kofi match, as it was pretty much certain that Ziggler would win, and Big E Langsten's attack after the match might separate the pair of Ziggler and Big E. Hopefully.
The Rock VS Punk match certainly didn't meet my expectations. I feel that any match with The Rock involved just fails. The matches feel to calculated and stategised. They are also way too quick, or at least feel like that.
The best match of the night was definately the #1 contender for the World Heavyweight Championship Elimination Chamber match-up, and my pick to win, Jack Swagger, did just that. The match was fantastic, and the stint with Mark Henry might set him up with a new rivalry. His most likely foe...Randy freaking Orton. WOO! WOO! WOO! You Know It!
Thanks for reading, if you got this far. Sorry this article had to be so quick, but I have other things that need attention, so I cannot continue. Look at Bleacher Report for more information about the Chamber match before it is overrun by the things that are happening on Monday Night RAW.
