WWE Results: Elimination Chamber 2018
Another PPV is in the books and we have a clear winner this time in our rankings, no ties tonight. Lets see how it unfolded...
Aaand the winners are........ (imagine a drumroll)
The Club vs The Miztourage
This match was easily predictable, but I anticipated something more happening. Nothing more happened. The Club beat The Miztourage in a decent match, perhaps they're building towards a 3-on-3 Club vs Miztourage match, but with the Revival cutting an interview promo in the bac, it looks like they are staying in the picture for the time being. (So why the hell didn't they interfere in the damned match!)
Winners: The Club (Brundan and Rybo Slice)
Alexa Bliss (c) vs Bailey vs Sasha Banks vs Mickie James vs Sonya Deville vs Mandy Rose (Raw Women's Championship Elimination Chamber match)
The first match of the night is the first ever women's Elimination Chamber match, and it was impressive. They played up all of the psychology that was expected with the group of women involved. Absolution teamed up, Bailey and Sasha teamed up, we never got to see ig Mickey James and Bliss would have teamed up because James got eliminated before Bliss was able to get in the ring. Banks turned on Bailey as everyone predicted. Although it didn't happen in the manner I was hoping for it, and I felt it could have been done with better effect, but we'll see how it plays out tonight on Raw. But the big news coming out of this, is that little miss Bliss still reigns on top. Will it be here and Asuka at Mania, or is Asuka jumping ships as I predict? Can't wait to find out.
Winner: Alexa Bliss (all)
The Bar (c) vs Titus Worldwide (Raw Tag Team Championship match)
There really isn't much to say about this match, although I'm pretty sure the announce team used Apollo's old last name a few times. (On a side note, I know why they dropped his name, and I can respect it, but I don't know if it was really necessary, but it's a good showing of social consciousness. So kudos to you WWE, even if I think it is a bit misplaced) The match was OK, nothing special, but the right team won, and hopefully at Mania The Bar will have a better team and story built up for them.
Winner: The Bar (All)
Asuka vs Nia Jax
Nobody is ready for Asuka! This was a very entertaining match, which is difficult to do when everyone knows what the result is going to be. Nia put on the performance that she needed to in order to remain the monster that they've been building her as, but it's not time for Asuka to lose. that'll happen at Mania 2019. Nia will still get her Mania match this year, but it'll be a 1-on-1 against Alexa Bliss when Asuka takes on Charlotte over on the Smackdown side of the PPV.
Winner: Asuka (all)
Woken Matt Hardy vs Bray Wyatt
Matt Hardy has to win the feud, but if this is the end of it now, what are they doing to Bray. I would not be surprised if he requests his release soon. The match could have been great with these two characters, but instead we were given a lackluster match where the crowd cared more about another damned beach ball. So damned disrespectful, but at the same time, if the WWE can't entertain the crowd it's really their own fault.
Winner: Matt Hardy (Brundan and Rybo Slice)
Roman Reigns vs Seth Rollins vs Finn Balor vs Braun Strowman vs Elias vs The Miz vs John Cena (Universal Championship Number 1 Contender Elimination Chamber match)
How much more can they push Braun without actually giving him anything? He was an absolute beast eliminating five wrestlers only to be fed to Roman Reigns. If they really want us to care about Roman, they should have had him start the match with the Miz and someone else, and have him eliminate at least 3 people. He would have earned some respect that way, instead of picking up the win after Braun did all of the work. Everyone else looked good in the match. Elias didn't do anything special, but he put on a decent show. Cena and Miz were as reliable as always, Seth and Finn deserve a Mania spotlight match because they are fucking work horses (although I'm a little upset Finn didn't do the Coup de Grace off the top of a pod. But it all comes back to Braun Strowman and his one man demolition tour. I just hope to shit he's not relegated to the Andre the Giant Battle Royal. I could see a triple threat for the Universal title, but I don't want him losing.
Winner: Roman Reigns (Brundan and Double A)
When will I stop voting with my heart? I need to realize that WWE creative isn't as creative as my imagination, and that the scenarios that play out in my head (while far more entertaining) aren't what they have planned. Boo.
Either way, this was a fun PPV, and congrats to Brundan, for sitting atop the throne all by himself.
