The elimination chamber matches were predictable and the under-card for this show was awful so I had little interest going in so I watched late last night after a long shift with a early start, so I was only half awake for some of it but here are my thoughts.....

Womens chamber match was so so, pretty average really, didn't get going at all until the later stages and Alexa Bliss winning was expected so it just didn't really deliver any surprises or any real excitement, nothing was memorable about the match.
Alexa did seem to break kayfabe in her post match promo but then quickly reverted back to heel mode which she did expertly.

The Bar vs Titus Worldwide was another so so effort with a predictable result, very much a filler match.

Bray Wyatt vs Matt Hardy was average at best, this whole feud has been mediocre. Surprised to see Matt get the clean decision, Bray being punished for his recent bad publicity perhaps?

Nia vs Asuka was ok, as expected Asuka got the win while Nia remained strong.

I enjoyed the contract signing, was smart booking to play on the bitterness from Triple H and Steph towards Ronda from years ago and run a angle where they would abuse their power to get revenge, simple and effective way to set up the Wrestlemania match which it now seems will be Kurt teaming with Ronda.
The only thing I really didn't like here was Ronda's mic work, she seemed nervous and uncomfortable nearly messed up her lines a few times. Hopefully promo confidence will come the more she does it, this was after all her first time on a mic in WWE.

Mens chamber match was decent, match of the night although that wasn't much of a challenge.
Braun was the star of the show with a completely dominant display but just makes it all the more ridiculous that he didn't win. People don't want Roman vs Brock and I don't know what it will take to make WWE realise that.

Finally got the chance to watch EC and it is going down as one of the worst PPV's ive seen.

Part of that though i believe is down to the fact Wrestlemania matches are already set so the whole card was predictable.

I think that WWE need to mix things up abit in the future because these PPVs are pretty meaningless when all of the main matches are set. This PPV and Fastlane should be used to set up the other higher mid card feuds for mania and it wouldnt be a bad thing keeping the world champions off the PPV altogether

I supposed Sasha could turn heel at Mania and screw Asuka out of her streak? Thus giving more legs to the feud and keeping Asuka away from her climax that much longer.


Asuka will be facing Charlotte at Mania so Sasha may not have to lose the belt so quickly

I'll just leave this here Smile
