The Road to Wrestlemania continues with a pretty lame lineup for Elimination Chamber 2017.
DOLPH ZIGGLER v. APOLLO CREWS and KALISTO (Handicapped Match)
The premise of this match is ridiculous. We look forward to the ascension of Apollo Crews, but we think the writers want Ziggler to win. We pick Ziggler.
NIKKI BELLA v. NATALYA
They are trying to bring back Bella. We pick Bella.
SMACK DOWN TAG TEAM CHAMPIONSHIPS
We’re going with a dark horse – American Alpha
RANDY ORTON v. LUKE HARPER
RKO just won the ROYAL RUMBLE, as we predicted. They can’t possibly have him now lose to Harper, can they?! We pick RKO.
BECKY LYNCH v. MICKIE JAMES
They are trying to bring back Mickie James, also. We pick Mickie.
ELIMINATION CHAMBER – MAIN EVENT
Let’s go Cena – Cena sucks. We pick Cena.
The first segment had a canned interview with Randy Orton, proudly saying how he set up Seth Rollins last week. Then, Rollins (flanked by J&J Security), Big Show, and Kane were in the ring listening to Rollins complain about Orton’s betrayal. He accused The Viper of being sociopathic. In a moment of transparent insincerity combined with poor acting, Big Show apologized to Rollins. This was followed by apologies from Kane and Jamie Noble. Joey Mercury was too sad – sniff, sniff – to apologize. Continue reading RAW BRAWDCAST – March 16, 2015 (Des Moines, Iowa)
Smackdown started with Dolph Ziggler walking out with the new white and gold (or is it black and blue?) Intercontinental Belt. Overactor Ziggler said that winning the Intercontinental Belt “changed his life.” Jerry the King Lawler called Bad News Barret another Kanye West. Luke Harper then attacked Ziggler and stopped BNB from taking back his title. A brawl ensued between Ziggler, Barrett, Harper, and Dean Ambrose. R-Truth took advantage of the distraction, slithered in the ring, and stole the Belt while no one was looking – no one but the cameras, audience, and announcers, that is.

The show began with Rollins taunting Jon Stewart. Roman Reigns entered, and then he and Rollins taunted each other. Reigns punched Rollins and then Superman punched and speared J&J Security.
Randy Orton encouraged Rollins to ask The Authority for a match with Reigns.

The night began with a six man Tag Team match – Ziggler, Rowan, and Ryback wrestling Rollins, Kane, and Big Show – The Babyfaces vs. The Heels.
Announcer Michael Cole discussed the fact that these three Faces were previously terminated by The Authority, and stated that if you’re abused by the boss, you can go to Human Resources, but in the WWE, disputes are settled in the ring. Cole is absolutely right, except for the fact that the disputes and the matches are all fake in the WWE. Continue reading LIFE IN THE WWE FASTLANE – February 22, 2015 (Memphis, TN)
