WWE Elimination Chamber Predictions From Jim Ross

WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross has updated his blog at JRsBarBQ.com with predictions for tonight’s WWE Elimination Chamber pay-per-view. Here are some highlights of what JR thinks about the following matches:

Del Rio vs. Big Show: World heavyweight Champion @VivaDelRio Alberto Del Rio feels to be building more momentum daily but he also could arguably be the underdog going into his WHC defense against the mammoth Big Show. I see ADR winning a close one using more resourcefulness than physicality but, as has been proven, Big Show is simply one right hand away from winning any match in which he’s involved.

Elimination Chamber: Honestly, a viable argument can be made, some more than others, obviously, that any one of the 6 contestants could be deemed the winner. All 6 men will likely be on the WM29 card but the difference in the pay day for being in a main event, World Title bout or not is significant. Very significant … The Elimination Chamber will have five men in it that will not win, see what a math whiz that I am, but I see all five of the non winners having the opportunity to have superb nights in #NOLA. Who will outshine the others ? Who will seize the opportunity to steal some spotlight? Who wants a higher spot on the WM29 card?

The Shield vs. Team Cena: So, I’m going out on the old, proverbial limb here and picking @TheShield to prevail by hook or crook this Sunday on PPV in an upset. In my opinion, this is a much bigger match for @TheShield than for their adversaries. With that said and if that is remotely accurate perhaps @DeanAmbrose, @WWERollins, and @RomanReigns will bring more of a sense of urgency and a willingness to do what ever it takes to leave #NOLA as the winners.

The Rock vs. CM Punk: I have high expectations for this return bout on Sunday and will be disappointed if it doesn’t eclipse what we saw in Phoenix a few weeks ago. I enjoyed the Rumble bout as I have said but the 2nd go around should be improved upon the first…in my personal opinion. With all that said, and not knowing how @HeymanHustle will impact this bout, I have to go with the majority and pick the Rock to retain but I honestly don’t think that it will be easy or without controversy.
