We’re at the Road To Wrestlemania and because WWE loves to have a couple of additional occasions in this day and age, we’ve got two pay consistent with perspectives ahead of we will get there. This time round that incorporates Elimination Chamber, which does have one thing attention-grabbing with the display’s namesake suits. They’re doing one thing other with the 2 World Title suits this time round so possibly they’ll have one thing. Let’s get to it.
US Title: Bobby Lashley(c) vs. Keith Lee vs. Riddle
Lashley is on a heck of a roll as US Champion however I’m now not certain if he’s going to hold onto the identify right here. They have performed a pleasing activity of putting in place the fit however that’s assuming you forget about the absence of Lee, who was once now not even at the cross house Raw. I’m now not certain if this is going to be a large deal, however on the identical time, it will give them an out to retain the identify as a result of WWE doesn’t thoughts having Lee lose somewhat steadily.
I’ll cross with Lashley preserving the identify, although I’m now not certain how for much longer he’ll be champion. In idea he will have to be on difficult for the World Title quicker moderately than later however he’ll want to lose america Title first. I’ll take Lashley beating Lee right here although, as Riddle continues to get just about profitable the identify however by no means if truth be told will get there. I’m now not certain he’ll understand although and he’ll nonetheless be simply high quality anyway.
Women’s Tag Team Titles: Nia Jax/Shayna Baszler(c) vs. Bianca Belair/Sasha Banks
My goodness those titles proceed to seek out new techniques to really feel utterly nugatory. How time and again in a row can the challengers be any other thrown in combination staff who’ve nearly no time in combination as companions? That’s the place we’re once more right here, however a minimum of Belair and Banks have a tale in combination. I imply, after all they’ve the risk to have a tale in combination as a result of they completely haven’t made it transparent that Belair is difficult Banks at Wrestlemania.
Anyway I’ll take Belair and Banks profitable the identify right here, as there is not any explanation why to stay the titles on Jax and Baszler. I don’t just like the champions who feud with every different, however a minimum of it will give them an opportunity to transition the titles to Raquel Gonzalez/Dakota Kai in NXT the place they belong. Just cross with what is sensible for the titles for as soon as. It may well be great for a metamorphosis.
Raw World Title: Drew McIntyre(c) vs. Sheamus vs. AJ Styles vs. Jeff Hardy vs. Randy Orton vs. Kofi Kingston
I do not know the place they’re going with the WWE Title presently. Everything on paper says it will have to be McIntyre vs. Sheamus in a one or two fit program for the identify however except Sheamus wins the belt right here and so they cross to Fastlane the place McIntyre will get it again after which strikes directly to Wrestlemania, I’m now not certain what else there’s to do. That by hook or by crook leaves them with few choices and a large number of choices, which is somewhat the location.
In what isn’t a good suggestion, I’ll cross with the logical approach and say Sheamus leaves as champion right here, putting in place the showdown with McIntyre at Fastlane. I’ll additionally forget about the Money within the Bank briefcase as a result of I will’t set up to care that a lot much less about Miz and the contract. But yeah, we’ll cross with Sheamus profitable right here, most likely getting rid of McIntyre remaining to get the identify.
Jey Uso vs. Kevin Owens vs. Daniel Bryan vs. Cesaro vs. King Corbin vs. Sami Zayn
Now we’ve got a fit with much more choices to win as it’s more or less obtrusive what’s coming after this fit is over. This time round, the winner of the Elimination Chamber will get to problem Roman Reigns right away thereafter, making this type of the comfort prize for the winner because of causes of imminent destruction. That doesn’t imply it’ll be a nasty fit, but it surely more or less weakens the have an effect on.
I do know the straightforward solutions are both Cesaro or Owens….so I’ll cross with Owens, expectantly permitting him to wrap up the feud with Reigns as soon as and for all in any other beautiful superior fit. The fit has a large number of possible and may cross a number of other ways, however having the Chamber as a #1 contenders fit by no means set all that proper with me. It will have to be excellent although, and that’s all it must be.
Smackdown World Title: Roman Reigns(c) vs. ???
So yeah I don’t assume there’s going to be that a lot drama to this one. Unless they’ve some more or less screwy end to the Chamber the place the winner is best within the ring for roughly ten seconds and springs into the identify fit recent, that is about as a lot of a layup as you’re going to seek out. There is a great probability that Reigns continues to be champion going into Wrestlemania subsequent 12 months so I will’t believe him shedding it right here.
I feel I’ve made it transparent sufficient however only for the sake finishing touch, Reigns keeps right here and will have to do it beautiful simply. Above all else, this continues the theme of Paul Heyman being sensible sufficient to stay Reigns from having to paintings that a lot a large number of the time, and that could be a nice use for him. It suits the entirety they’re doing and Reigns has to do not anything however hang out his hand and take the identify, as a result of he is aware of he’s excellent sufficient to break out with it.
Note that I’m leaving off Asuka vs. Lacey Evans, which isn’t going to occur as a result of WWE isn’t that loopy, regardless of it nonetheless being indexed at the WWE.com preview as of early Sunday morning. Granted WWE.com additionally says that the display begins at each 7pm (Network agenda) and 8pm (display’s authentic web page) so possibly I’m pondering an excessive amount of into this.
Overall….I’m in point of fact now not certain what to anticipate from this one and that’s a pleasing factor as a way to say. Above all else, both Chamber fit may cross in a couple of other instructions and I’ll completely take that over remaining 12 months the place Shayna Baszler was once the most important lock to win within the historical past of the fit. It shouldn’t be so tough to put in writing a tale that leaves you with a couple of choices however since WWE does now not have the most efficient monitor document in that space, it’s moderately great to have that more or less a sense for this display.
