Backstage: Kane, Daniel Bryan

Kane is shown pacing backstage, and Daniel Bryan asks if he’s still giving him the silent treatment. Bryan says the Royal Rumble was every man for himself, and Kane eliminated Bryan, so he should be the one who’s mad. Bryan asks why Kane is so grumpy. Kane says Bryan looks grumpy since he’s like a dwarf. Kane says he’s never competed in a WrestleMania main event, and tonight’s his shot, so it’s really important.

Elimination Chamber Match: Chris Jericho vs. Daniel Bryan vs. Randy Orton vs. Mark Henry vs. Kane vs. Jack Swagger

Jack Swagger is the first man to make his way to the chamber. He’s accompanied by Zeb Colter on his way down the entranceway. Swagger has a mic in hand. He says when he holds the mic, he holds the power. When he uses the mic, he uses it to shower the fans with truth. Zeb Colter speaks the truth. Zeb is a great American and if the fans have any type of respect for their country they will stand up and give it to him. This man, Zeb Colter. Swagger hands off the mic and applauds. Zeb says they are in a den of inequity. They are in New Orleans, and on the eve of President’s day, he can’t help but think of Thomas Jefferson and the Louisiana purchase, and how ashamed he would see what became of it, and this once great nation. A nation that Zeb defended with his life. And just like the WWE, they’re both full of intruders, panderers, and he spent one year in the muck with Swagger’s daddy to see people crossing borders, breaking laws, and asking for a handout. Together, they will make things right, because tonight, in this chamber, a real patriot and American will set things straight, and win one for the good guys. Mark Zeb’s words, tonight marks the beginning of a Jack Swagger era. Swagger yells out ‘We the people’ before being cut off by Kane’s music. Kane makes his way into the chamber to a decent reaction, and heads right for his pod without a big speech like Swagger. Mark Henry is the third entrant, and the World’s strongest man doesn’t get the warmest reaction from the crowd, although to be fair, it’s not really much of a reaction at all. Henry stares down Swagger before making his way into his personal pod and finds himself closed in. The final pod is claimed as Randy Orton makes his way down to the ring and into the chamber. Orton gets a really nice initial pop from the crowd. Daniel Bryan makes his way out next, discouraging the crowd from their ‘Yes’ chants on his way into the chamber. Michael Cole reminds us that last year Bryan actually won the Chamber match on the way to WrestleMania last year. Chris Jericho is the final entrant into the Chamber, and it’s safe to say that the fans are happy to see him as he makes his way down to the ring.

  • fatneal

    that del rio vs big show match will be trash….my only hope is that ziggler cashes in and gets the title (notice hes nowhere on the card) and have y2j or the dazzler win the elimination chamber to set up a great match at wrestlemania

    • Smith

      if the Camber match is before the WHC match and Jericho wins the chamber then it’s pretty safe to assume that Ziggler will cash in on the winner of the WHC match to set up Ziggler vs Jericho at Mania. Cause the way things are going and Zigglers storyline mindset if Jerichos going to Mania so is he.

      • http://www.facebook.com/andrew.outlaw.33 Andrew Outlaw

        Yeah, but too bad wwe is turning y2j heel for a feud with ryback

    • cappa37

      well the WHC was actually awesome. Too bad non of your predictions came true.

      • fatneal

        i wouldnt say they were predictions just simply what id rather see at wrestlemania…imo the del rio big show match was raw caliber not ppv caliber

  • http://www.facebook.com/F3ARxChaRLie Chuck Tamblyn

    I’m calling Paul Heyman has The Shield attack Punk so The Rock gets DQ’d and loses the title!

    • Smith

      Hopefully, I’m hoping even though I’m a Paul Heyman guy that Heyman has been involved with the shield all along WITHOUT Punk knowing.

  • Thomas-24/7 (Mutascale)

    I thought the opening bout was okay, but I cannot believe that Michael Cole called Big Show a “bully” when Alberto Del Rio was breaking people’s arms and attacking people with weapons.

    The U.S title match was good, until the ending…the ending was a little funny. Looks like the Miz and Caesaro will wrestle at WrestleMania with no dq.

  • Great Muta Japanese Warrior

    Antonio vs Great Muta for the night after WM29 ! How does that sound for a match ?
    Check out Muta vs Steve Austin at a 1994 PPV, I think it was for the US title. Awesome match.

  • AceAce

    Hope Orton Win

  • http://www.facebook.com/evan.dilger Evan Dilger

    Punk and Heyman get Electrified and Rocked so you people that like heyman and Punk Shut up before you get Rock bottomed

    • Kappa

      implying the rock would randomly assault any punk fans, go to bed little guy

  • AceAce

    Henry is a BEASTTTTTTT

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Jeremy-Gordon/1423005919 Jeremy Gordon

    Swagger winning = yawn

    • James

      Your Comments = yawn

  • Jeff

    I’m actually glad swagger won and is getting pushed. I saw it coming after the zeb promo

  • Thomas-24/7 (Mutascale)

    That was an awesome elimination chamber match. Dutch Mantell is a huge boost for Jack Swagger’s character. Jack Swagger is being managed from a guy that has been a heel throughout his career, back in the territory days. Looking back, the World Heavyweight Championship match is a International match; America vs Mexico for the championship of the world.

  • http://www.facebook.com/jose.cordova.129 Jose Cordova

    what I say I knew there going buildup to that match for Swagga vs Delrio

  • G.I.R.L.

    i hope the Shield wins. They’ve been very good heels. Congrats to Swagger (not a fan of him, at all, but it’s fresh and he can perform).

  • Dick Chipperson

    The Shield does it again! HELL YEAH! Believe in The Shield!!!

  • Thomas-24/7 (Mutascale)

    I guess Marvel’s shield is booked like a “shield.” Personally, I’m getting tired of the Shield bring booked like the NWO. There’s only three guys while the NWO had ten or more groups.

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Randy-James-Crawford/100001407556559 Randy James Crawford

      NWO had more then 3 guys.

        Excuse me, there are only three guys in the Shield while the NWO had ten or more guys.

      • Backstreet Bungalow

        NWO started with Hogan, Hall and Nash slapnuts

  • wtfwwe

    so its called elimanation chamber with only one chamber match wow wwe

  • Thomas-24/7 (Mutascale)

    I was actually hoping for Evan Bourne or Christian to come out, but we get Kofi Kingston…wow.

  • Backstreet Bungalow

    Haha to all the Jericho nut huggers who thought he’d win. No match with Ziggler at Mania for any title.Good for Swagger

  • 2muchfire

    It’s Swagger’s time, Change his studid ass theme song and make him serious, watch him grow, then hitch your wagon to him as the top heel in WWE.

  • fatneal

    ziggler was wasted once again,,,swagger looked very good tonite i like this new improved swagger….the shield is GOLD reigns has a super future ahead

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Randy-James-Crawford/100001407556559 Randy James Crawford

      He can be wasted all the time he has the Briefcase.

      • Backstreet Bungalow

        I hope that’s sarcasm cause If him having the briefcase is your argument, then you must not know shit

      • BOOCH

        Are you serious? That’s like calling yourself rich because you have a winning a lottery ticket. Until you actually get the money, nobody gives a fuck.

  • Boomshakalaka

    Quick thoughts:
    -decent PPV
    -Love Swagger’s new theme and him winning I did not expect. The chamber match was awesome
    -So happy the Shield won. Roman Reigns was the MVP of that match IMO
    -Punk had Rock down for a 15 count. I think it’s safe to say we will be seeing a Triple Threat match at WM29

    • Frank

      How? The only way i could came see Punk in it now is if that have a contract signing and cm punk beat up cena or paul get the sheild to be a cena and then cm punk come out of to the ring and sign the contract after rock has sign already it to be in the main event at wm29 so then vince make the match a 3 way at wm29 like that did with hbk and benoit back in 2004 hay wwe has rehay many thing before from that past anyway by ripping of gimmick and storyline so why not another one?!

    • BestEver

      No its going to be brock vs punk at wrestlemania 29 its going to be over paul heyman.

  • Y2J

    The only downside to Rock winning the title is Rock Vs. Cena II, other than that Great PPV.

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100002196281205 Kenneth Anderson Jr.

      Well i think it’ll be Rock vs Cena vs Punk

      • Y2J

        We shall see but either way, not looking forward to the outcome.

      • http://www.facebook.com/people/Randy-James-Crawford/100001407556559 Randy James Crawford

        If it happens Punk should win by Brock Lesnar’s interference.

  • Success

    I smell triple threat…. I also feel a face turn for Ziggler. I think Swag is gonna capture the belt at mania n set up a feud between he n zig!

  • MisterE

    Lame match, lame ending Punk/Rock, Rock sucks at wrestling, Punk made him look amateurish…..best match was The Shield handing Cena, Sheamus, Ryback DEFEAT

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Randy-James-Crawford/100001407556559 Randy James Crawford

      The Rock was fighting with internal injuries he could have made Undertaker, HBK, Brock Lesnar look like rookies if they had internal injuries like The Rock did so check your facts please.

      • Backstreet Bungalow

        Quit being a crybaby bitch please

      • MisterE

        what the f’k ever…it was a lame match, just like all the matches he has had since the previous wrestlemania up to his last match. In wrestlemania against Cena he barely pulled off a simple rock bottom…..The Rock should stick to doing films and let the wrestling professionals such as Ziggler and Punk continue to stake their legacy and eras in the biz. These guys work their asses off day in and day out, only for some FORMER wrestling star come in take the shine away from them…..that’s straight up bullshit and you know it. The Rock had his time…it’s over, he choose his path (acting), You wanna sit there and believe that he’s there (for the moment) because he loves the sport/entertainment..yeah right..he’s there just like any other major celeb does the wwe…for the money, for the money period, nothing more nothing less.

  • Success

    Rock vs Cena vs Punk at mania

  • Success

    Shield vs Orton, Sheamus, Ryback

  • http://www.facebook.com/jose.cordova.129 Jose Cordova

    i love what There doing for the world heavyweight title its something new I’m look forward to that match more than the rock vs Cena… lets just hope it’s longer than a minute

  • http://www.facebook.com/thescottierock Scottie Rock

    I’m glad that Vince has ADD with new talent. Ryback being buried by someone who hasn’t even been in the WWE for six months? Thwagger being back for less than a month and taking out RKO, DB, Kane, Henry, and Jericho? And an impromptu Ziggler vs Kofi match? Let’s think about this: the last four IC belt holders were Kofi (jobs to Ziggler), Miz (jobs to Cesaro), Christian (waiting for a comeback), and Cody Rhodes (not even televised). The current IC champ wasn’t even in the PPV. If Vince wants his entire roster to look weak and no one to be above the fold, he’s doing a terrific job.

      WWE is a fucking joke bro.

      • http://www.facebook.com/people/Randy-James-Crawford/100001407556559 Randy James Crawford

        Listen your on a thing talking about WWE so SHUT UP if you don’t like it and just leave.

        • Backstreet Bungalow

          Using caplocks doesn’t add inches to your dick or make you intimidating you fuckin crybaby

          • http://www.facebook.com/people/Peer-Pressure/100000691268185 Peer Pressure

            Ignore him. I think somethings wrong with him.

    • fatneal

      yeah good points man…hard to argue against any of em…but im still some what satisfied with the direction their going in…henry came out looking strong…ortons heel turn is coming soon…db and kane still have their tag thing lingering and y2j is part time so swagger being made over and getting a push is good….ziggler was wasted NUFF SAID…i dunno wtf wwe is doing with the IC title thats the legit joke…everything else was solid

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Randy-James-Crawford/100001407556559 Randy James Crawford

      Ryback is awful, people call Jack Swagger boring well Ryback is truly boring, no wrestling skills, no mic skills, not exciting at all, Wade Barrett is actually hurt so he was taking a little break.

  • whos john cena


  • James

    To anyone who is mad Swagger won the Chamber Match should consider this. Everyone on here is always saying either WWE is too predictable or they always have the same people winning the big matches. Well for once WWE wasn’t predictable and had Swagger win the chamber match. Another thing I am hearing is Swagger is boring. Well let’s see he has a brand new character, a new manager and a new and improved theme song, so let’s see how this new character plays out before we call him boring, idiots. Now, I love Y2J, but at this point in his career does he need the World Heavyweight tilte spot at Wrestlemania. He and Ziggler can still have a kick-ass match at WM. One last thing Swagger is a great F’N wrestler so atleast give him that. Go Swagger!!!

    • http://www.facebook.com/thescottierock Scottie Rock

      Being unpredictable for the sake of being unpredictable doesn’t make it any better than being too predictable. Ziggler deserves the spotlight of a title match at Mania, which could still happen, but it’s unlikely. Kudos to Thwagger for leaving and changing his gimmick. He is talented in the ring and it’s good that he has a better mouthpiece now than Vicki ever was. However, he wasn’t and hasn’t been the workhorse that Ziggler’s been. Ziggy’s sold more in the past 9 months than Cena has in his entire career. Y2J would put him over the way no one else could and Ziggy has much more long-term potential than Swags ever will. IMHO.

      • James

        Workhorse,really? Before Swagger’s 5-month break, which he desperately needed because of his awful character direction, he had been in the WWE since September of 2008 with no breaks in between. So your workhorse argument is BS. BTW how does being a good wrestler and having a new, good-talking manager mean you have no-long term potential?

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Rick-Yuhnke/100002079499044 Rick Yuhnke

    Sad part is all of this was predictable. Boring, I am glad I did not waste the money on that!

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Randy-James-Crawford/100001407556559 Randy James Crawford

      Just Shut Up nothing is going to make you happy so etheir don’t watch WWE and Shut Up or watch and be happy.

      • Backstreet Bungalow

        U mad bro?

    • fatneal

      the only predictable match was the punk vs rock…oh and the random ziggler match…everything else was a swerve

  • James

    To me this night was all about making new stars. WWE did that with Swagger, Reigns and Ziggler( to a degree). For those complaining about Swagger getting the wrestlemania spot over Ziggler need to realize Ziggler still holds the briefcase and will be just fine.

  • TheGr8One

    I am just wondering about the stipulation in the WWE Title match… Why didn’t Heyman step in and slap Punk so that he could win the title??

    • http://twitter.com/StupidSobi SOBI

      Simple thats “WWE LOGIC”

  • SRGII221

    I thought the W.W.E. wanted to fight bully’s and be a star for kids not show how the Shield can win with a 3on1 like they did tonight!What does that say to children but 3on1 is cool?The sield needs to lose to show kids not to be bullies!

    • fatneal

      lol dude its not real

  • SRGII221

    The Shield is getting old real fast and Lame is Lame no matter how you dress it!I’m surprised nobody else has come out of the audience to attack wrestlers yet!What is next lame attempt from the W.W.E. ? How about 3 clowns coming out from under the ring and getting involved with a match? Wait , that’s the Shield already !LAME LAME LAME!~

    • Sisisi!

      You must be a fan of The Shield

  • SRGII221

    Having the Shield beat any wrestler ,even3on1 is such a joke!My daughter ,by herself,couldbeat those3 losers!They can’t even wrestle let alone compete in a fair fight!

  • SRGII221

    My wife Tracy could knock out the Shield with one punch and that’s why I can’t take her to a match!She gets really fired up when she sees lame asses picking 3on1 anywhere!

  • 9 year old boy

    Rock vs Cena (2x in a lifetime)
    Rock vs Cena vs Punk…HELL YEAH.

  • stormgreyeagle

    all in all, a decent Elimination Chamber show…………but as far as Tensai goes; if the E needs a clown every week, brink Doink back; I liked the idea of him being at least an upper mid card beast

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=16734450 Brandon Sco??

    This PPV sucked…

  • bogdan

    the shield wins?

  • WWEFan4Life

    WWE made an absolutely awesome PPV last night! The shield have been sooo dominant over the past few months and tonight just proves it, they have beaten 3 of the WWEs biggest poster boys. People need to realize the shield are thankfully the future and hopefully will reveal a heel Orton as the leader. Believe in the shield.

    As for Swagger winning the title, everyone was shocked because no one expected it. This is such a good thing because very single fan of Swagger knows he can be a jobber, mid-carder and the main event. It will definately be exciting watching Swagger v Del Rio at wrestlemania 29. For once WWE, you were not predictable, Good job.

    Rock vs CM Punk was, however, way too predictable. Before it even started, it was pretty much confirmed for Rock v Cena at wrestlemania. The match was very very great, and all though I knew the result, I absolutely loved the match. The spot with the ref being knocked out was great and so was the moment with CM Punk hitting Paul Heyman with the belt. Awesome match.

    There was only 2 matches that were disappointing. 1) The miz v Antonio Cesaro because WWE had the oppurtunity to make that match a classic and to end it like it did was dissaponting and 2) Dolph Ziggler v Kofi Kingston because again, Dolph was buried and practically forgotten, WWE could have done so much more with him that night.

    But overall, a good PPV, and hopefully can be more like this in the future.

  • fatneal

    heres the thing about rock vs cena the writers are playing it up as these two just happen to cross paths again…so all you smart marks tryna call wwe out on cena/rock being “once in a lifetime” that was a random match with nothing on the line…sometimes internet idiots get so caught up in out smarting wwe they forget there is for the most part storylines at play that give legit excuses to some of the stuff that goes on…this is for their target demographic not internet smart marks

  • rehan khan

    what happen to shemus,ryback,john cena their cannot defeat sheild

  • Jaydon

    Reigns definitely impressed me. Loved the chamber match and like a lot of people, i did not expect Swagger to win. Best moment was how Henry got eliminated. Henry was the mvp of the chamber.

  • http://twitter.com/Shaddy_esc_617 Rashad Jackson

    im happy about the shield but yet im upset…i wanted them to win cuz again cena..ryback..shemus are all baby faces n the popular wrestlers of wwe…i wanted them to LOSE cuz i am sick of them kicking every1s ass!! hahah but now that they beat ryback..cena n sheamus…whats next for them?? i do like that idea with orton being the leader of the shield but i doubt that will happen..they are def. the future of the wwe!..reigns was a BEAST! that spear to sheamus was incredible!! haha…but seriously whats next for them? that was only their second match EVER as a group…what about 1 on 1 matches…let ryback face each of them 1 on 1 to get his payback?? ryback looked pretty pissed last night when he walked out the ring after they lost…i dont want ryback to go after the shield all alone…some1 needs to help him!!…but i wonder whats next for the shield…i mean are they just gonna get beating up ppl until a NEW group of ppl gets tired of them n wants to fight them??…that will get boring eventually…but something NEW needs to happen with them,…
