Wrestle Review: EC Preview Submitted by Andy Sullivan on 02/23/2018 at 09:14 PM
Sunday is Elimination Chamber but I'll get to that. What Seth Rollins did Monday, spending an hour and change in the ring, was simply amazing. Braun ended up winning the match, which I figured he would. But the biggest takeaway was what Seth did. They need to follow this up with something big for him.
Onto Elimination Chamber, MizTourage vs Gallows and Anderson in the kick-off show is the ultimate curtain-jerker, That's a shame but someone has to be in the kickoff show. Cesaro and Sheamus' will probably be defending against one of these teams at some point. They kind of have to. Raw doesn't have many tag teams. Until we get the Broken Hardy's, at least. Cesaro and Sheamus will wreck Titus Worldwide.
"Woken" Matt Hardy and Bray Wyatt...I honestly couldn't tell you who wins this or who probably cares. I'll choose Bray, only because I think we're gearing towards a Broken Hardy's reunion. Ronda Rousey's contract signing: you know something's happening. WWE contract signings never go on without a hitch. I say this is where we start the Rousey/? vs Triple H/Steph stuff. Or at least Ronda and Steph as the two main combatants. Got to give the owners daughter some rub, right? Good grief!
Asuka vs Nia: if Nia wins, she makes it into the women's title match. She's not winning. They're not having Asuka lose her first match in a non-big 4 show. Asuka wins. The first ever women's chamber match has to be won, somehow, by Alexa, right? I mean, is she going to lose the title to Bayley? No. Mickie? That'd be a heck of a story but no. Sasha? Please, no. Sonya or Mandy? Not a chance. Alexa retains.
The main event, aka the worst-kept secret in WWE, to decide who faces Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania closes the show. It won't be Cena. He's facing Undertaker. It won't be Miz or Braun. They're likely facing each other for the I-C title. Somehow Miz eliminates Braun Seth will lose and, I think, turn heel. No way Elias wins and WWE doesn't like Fin as even a contender for the title. That leaves Roman Reigns. Love it or hate it, Reigns is winning the chamber, going onto WrestleMania and taming the beast.
There you have it. Sit back, relax and enjoy Elimination Chamber. Should be a wild night!
