WWE Elimination Chamber 2/17/13

Tony Dawson and Matt Striker welcome us to the pre-show in the Superdome, New Orleans, Louisiana. The Rock Vs CM Punk II tonight. We will also see Alberto Del Rio Vs Big Show for the World Heavyweight Title. A 6-man tag match of John Cena, Ryback, and Sheamus face The Shield, and we will get an Elimination Chamber match with 6 men vying to get that spot at Wrestlemania, for the World Heavyweight Title. Chris Jericho Vs Kane Vs Daniel Bryan vs Randy Orton Vs Mark Henry Vs Jack Swagger.

Here we go, with the pre-show.

Josh Matthews is with Randy Orton.

Orton is planning on showing the world how dangerous Randy Orton can be.

We see video of Cena, Sheamus, and Ryback Vs The Shield. All I can say is The Shield must win this, and be booked stronger than ever.

The fans have spoken, and we will get it, a reunion of Team Rhodes Scholars. Cody just asks us to do one thing, give them a rounding Team Rhodes Scholars welcome of applause.

Team Rhodes Scholars Vs Brodus Clay and Tensai, now.

Brodus and Tensai win with a splash, Brodus pinning Cody.

There goes that reunion.

Wrestlemania 29 is 49 days away.

Elimination Chamber video is playing.

We are getting CM Punk Vs The Rock video playing now.

We are five minutes away from the show starting.

We are live, and sold out in New Orleans, Louisiana. Michael Cole, Jerry “The King” Lawler, and JBL welcome us to the show.

Our first match tonight is for the World Heavyweight Title. Big Show Vs Alberto Del Rio.

I am guessing Dolph Ziggler isn’t cashing in then, if this is the first match, but here we go.

Alberto Del Rio makes Big Show tap out to the Cross Arm Breaker. First time Del Rio beat Big Show.

Alberto Del Rio is going to Wrestlemania as the World Heavyweight Champion.

We are on the road to Wrestlemania, in New Orleans, Louisiana.

A sneak peek of GI Joe: Retaliation, opening on March 29th.

Our next match is for the United States Title with Antonio Cesaro Vs The Miz.

Josh Matthews is with Andrea Palicki and D.J. Cotrona, the two co-stars of GI Joe, with The Rock.

Miz is DQ’d when the referee, Charles Robinson believed Miz hit a low blow on Cesaro, but it was the positioning, where Antonio made it look like that is where it landed, but it did not.

Miz showed Charles what a real low blow is at, kicking Cesaro.

Daniel Bryan approaches Kane, why is Kane still upset at him, when they are trying to get into the Elimination Chamber?

Kane says he is focused. He has been in the WWE for 15 years, and he has never been in the Wrestlemania main event, so this is a big deal to him.

Daniel suggests that until they meet each other one on one, that they watch each other’s backs, Team Hell No style.

Kane hugs Daniel, and agrees. Daniels watches Kane’s back, and Kane will watch Kane’s back.

Elimination Chamber match, Daniel Bryan Vs Kane Vs Jack Swagger Vs Mark Henry Vs Chris Jericho Vs Randy Orton is up now.

Swagger heads out first, he has new music and of course Zeb Colter is with him. They are both real Americans, and Zeb is disappointed about how this country has become. With illegal people coming into our country, over the borders, poverty running out streets, a real patriot, Jack Swagger will pull this win tonight, and the real Jack Swagger Era will begin.

We The People.

Mark Henry’s music says it all….

“Somebody’s going to get their ass kicked…somebody’s going to get their wig split”.

Chris Jericho and Daniel Bryan start the match.

Jack Swagger has entered the match.

The next person in the match is…..Kane.

The next person in the match is Randy Orton. Still nobody is eliminated.

The Beast Mark Henry is in, still nobody eliminated.

Daniel Bryan is eliminated with a World’s Strongest Slam by Mark Henry.

5 men are left.

Kane is eliminated with a World’s Strongest Slam by Mark Henry.

4 men are left.

Henry is eliminated after a Code Breaker, a boot to the head, and a RKO by Jericho, Swagger, and Orton respectively.

The final three men are Jericho, Swagger, and Orton.

Henry comes right back into the cage and gives all three men a World’s Strongest Slam. Officials, Booker T, and Teddy Long come out to escort Mark out of the Chamber.

Here we go.

Chris Jericho is eliminated with a RKO.

Randy Orton is eliminated with a rollup, by Jack Swagger.

Swagger is going to Wrestlemania.

Orton was thinking too much about going to Wrestlemania, and Swagger was at the right place, at the right time.

Wrestlemania is 49 days away.

Our All-Star match is up now, The Shield Vs John Cena, Sheamus, and Ryback.

The Shield wins with a spear on Ryback, by Reigns. Ryback is pinned by Rollins. Cena had Ambrose on an Attitude Adjustment, but Reigns came from nowhere as earlier he and Sheamus went through a barricade.

Awesome match, with an awesome result. Ryback walks away in disbelief after that match.

Here comes Dolph Ziggler.

He reminds us that the Money in the Bank briefcase guarantees a Wrestlemania main event. Not Swagger winning the Elimination Chamber, and all he does is steal the show.

Enter Booker T.

A bonus match for us, Dolph Ziggler Vs Kofi Kingston.

Ziggler wins with a Zig Zag.

Next…

Big E. Langston takes out Kofi, why not, everyone else has done it lately.

Now we get 2 advertising plugs in one segment. Cole gave us instructions on how to download the WWE App on phone, and Cole has a screen saver of he and King. We also have Body Slammers, featuring Brodus Clay. Tensai is not available, but they all danced.

Kaitlyn Vs Tamina Snuka is next.

Kaitlyn retains the Divas Title with a spear on Tamina.

Our main event, for the WWE Title….CM Punk Vs The Rock II is up now.

To confirm, if Rock is DQ’d, he loses the WWE Title.

Rock wins with a Rock Bottom, after we had 2 ref bumps, Heyman hands Punk the WWE Title. Paul held Rock for Punk to hit him with it, and he nails Heyman instead, with Rock nailing the Rock Bottom.

A much slower paced match here, but it told the story of Punk trying to get out of Rock’s game plan.

The stage is set, Wrestlemania 29 will be John Cena Vs The Rock II, for the WWE title.

The real Road to Wrestlemania begins now.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

Last week, I made a statement that things just didn’t feel all that special. It was designed that way I think with Mainia taking place in April, and not March. So after tonight, things need to be picked up, and it must start tomorrow night on Raw.

Alberto Del Rio made Big Show tap out. It wasn’t a pin, but clearly Del Rio beat Big Show. A good start to the show.

If Miz doesn’t beat Cesaro, who will?

Surprising result for the Chamber match, but in the end, it was a good choice.

I also think we will see a Randy Orton heel turn, and perhaps his Wrestlemania opponent?

A great result too that The Shield wins, and it’s interesting that Ryback was the one who was defeated.

Where do we go from here?

Tough break for Kaitlyn and Tamina to be in the spot they were, but I think AJ Lee is ready for her Wrestlemania match with Kaitlyn.

I didn’t care to put Dolph in a match at all, and actually, there was no point to it. Kofi Kingston has become a tragic case, because he has always had the potential of being a main event caliber performer, yet for whatever reason, WWE never pushes him.

The main event was fine, I was expecting to see The Shield, and I wonder if that planned match with Punk at Wrestlemania is going to happen. If you don’t know, I won’t ruin it, but we should see the beginning of that tomorrow night.

I liked this show, the Chamber match was very good, and I loved the story it told of 6 former World Champions striving to be at Wrestlemania, and one man was at the right place, at the right time. Now let’s see where we go from here.

    Nobody ever mentioned this on TV, and no explanation was ever forthcoming, but why was there only one Elimination Chamber match? Why didn’t Raw get its own match? Or is the whole brand thing over and done with…if it is, why not unify the World and WWE Titles once and for all?

    This was a weak card..at least the Swagger win was a major swerve…glad to see Rybotch having to take the fall..Cena disgusts me every time I see him…so sick of his bullshit act..

    Have to agree with you on Kofi..he was having a nice run as IC champ before they snatched the belt away from him…you have to wonder if this guy is just destined to be the black Chris Jerhico..and why?

    • They never explained it, but I have the feeling that you don’t put The Rock in that sort of match, inside the Chamber. It truly is the most dangerous match in the entire WWE. While at first, I was against the idea of just one Chamber match, it worked for me.

      Usually special things happen at Chamber PPVs, setting up Wrestlemania. That didn’t happen this year, but I still liked it. Even though they had the perfect opportunity with Dolph Ziggler cashing in, which looks to not happen, unless it’s done at Mania? But yeah, that match with Kofi was a complete waste of time.

      What are your issues with Ryback? Cena needed to change his act five years ago, that will never happen, unfortunately.

      • adztheman says:

        Rybotch is a one trick pony…He gets guys hurt because he works entirely too stiff..he’s a sop to the eight year olds screaming ”feed me more”…I FFD through everything he does..he’s the white Broudus Clay, who also sucks..but watch them put the tag belts on him and A Train at Mania..pathetic..

        I think Ziggler has the full year from his win earlier this summer, so his clock is different from somebody who wins MITB at Wrestlemania..

        So very proud of the Shield..nice to see them have a dominating win…want that T Shirt 🙂

  2. I love that Lariant he uses, and no I do not refer it to “Meathook” it’s the Lariant, back to the days of Stan “The Lariant” Hansen, or JBL’s Clothesline from Hell. I think they will put the Tag Titles on The Shield, and yes they have looked awesome the last couple of nights.

    I hate the idea though of grooming the guy who is going to cash in MITB briefcase to lose, and that’s something Ziggy has done alot lately. He needs some big win, or go away until he cashes in the briefcase.

    • adztheman says:

      They seemingly can’t decide is Zig is going to do whatever he wants to do as a heel or a face..the A-J Gimmick was wasted when their response to the NYE Cena thing was relatively tepid..and the big guy just stands there and does…nothing…so what’s the point?

      I think the audience is kinda bored with Ziggler..have he and A-J go on vacation, put A-J in a bikini, and make it a weekly trip report while they plot what their next move is…I like it..have a cruise line sponser it..see? This works!!

      • I personally think Ziggler would have been better served as a babyface after his split with Vickie. Which might I add, the way they pulled that off was weird. A babyface Dolph Ziggler, using the Superkick as his finishing move would have the fans loving every second of it, because as Big Show had stated in an interview a few months ago, that move can happen at anytime.

      • adztheman says:

        According to the IWC that was the original plan and the fans reacted accordingly, until he started a losing streak versus Cena and seemingly anybody else he’s been in the ring with lately..

        If they can turn Del Rio face, which I understand, but am not happy with, then why not Ziggler? Then you make Randy Orton happy and turn him heel, which he’s been clamoring about for months..

      • Yeah and Sunday night was the perfect opportunity for Orton to do that last night. God, Raw was awful last night. Nothing happened, and instead they built next week as a BIG show. I don’t understand that. I guess the extra week in the calendar gives them more time, but at least do something last night.

        Cena never puts over any young talent, which pisses me off because he should. He made Ziggy look foolish in that feud.

      • adztheman says:

        Cena did put over the Rock at WM 28..cause it was good for business..and he helped put Punk over to a degree..

        I’ve not seen Raw in its entirety..will do that tonight…but I’ve not heard good things..although I do like the new WWE belt..looks much better…

      • Yeah, the only good thing about Raw, the new belt. Finally, Cena belt is gone. I’ll never forget two years ago, Cena on live TV said that “The Miz Vs Cena isn’t Wrestlemania worthy” when they were trying to build The Miz and his title credibility.
