WWE Elimination Chamber 2014 Results (2/23/14)

WWE Elimination Chamber Kickoff Show

The Kickoff Show opens with Josh Mathews welcoming us to a “frigid” Minneapolis, Minnesota. We see a shot of fans filing into the arena and then the camera swings from inside the arena over to the Kickoff Show expert panel. The panel for tonight’s event consists of Mark Henry, The Miz and Rey Mysterio. Miz jokes about the new Kickoff Show set being a nice wedding gift.

All three guys talk about which matches excite them most on tonight’s card. A small “Sexual Chocolate” chant breaks out as Henry runs down his thoughts on some of the matches on tonight’s card. The guys also talk about the tag-team division and how strong it is. Henry stumbles over his words pretty badly when running down his thoughts.

We shoot over to the social media lounge, where Renee Young informs us how to interact via Twitter, etc. She reads some tweets from the “WWE Universe.” She mentions that we should use the hashtag “#WWEChamber” to chat about the show on Twitter.

Now we’re back to the expert panel where Josh Mathews runs down the rules of the actual Elimination Chamber match itself. He then introduces some video packages highlighting the story lines surrounding Randy Orton and his WWE World Heavyweight Championship leading into the Chamber matchup tonight.

The gang talks about how dangerous the Elimination Chamber match is. Once again, Henry is having an awful time trying to put coherent sentences together. The guys talk about who they feel the favorites are in tonight’s Chamber match.

We shoot backstage and Zeb Colter is giving The Real Americans a pep-talk. He tells them that tomorrow night they’ll be able to say the Cesaro is the WWE World Heavyweight Champion and that Jack Swagger is the new WWE Intercontinental Champion. He finishes with the usual hand-over-your-heart speech.

After that segment concludes, JBL’s theme music hits and he makes his way out to the commentary table. The fans in Minneapolis give JBL a nice reception. As JBL makes his way to the announce booth, we see some video highlights detailing the history of the Batista and Alberto Del Rio feud.

Another light “Sexual Chocolate” chant breaks out as the Batista-Del Rio video wraps up. Out next is Jerry Lawler. “The King” makes his way to the commentary table to a great reaction and a smattering of “Jerry, Jerry” chants. As he makes his way to ringside, a WWE Network video package airs.

Once the WWE Network video finishes up, we shoot back live into the arena. At the commentary table at ringside, Michael Cole talks about how historic tomorrow night is with the official launch of the WWE Network. JBL and Jerry Lawler talk about how great a deal it is to purchase a WWE Network subscription. We get a closeup shot of Lawler on his iPad pointing out how easy it is to navigate through the WWE Network. He plays a clip of an old SummerSlam pay-per-view.

Goldust & Cody Rhodes vs. Ryback & Curtis Axel (with Larry “The Axe” Hennig)

Now that the WWE Network plugging is done, it’s time for our Kickoff Show match of the evening. Goldust’s theme music hits and out he comes with Cody Rhodes. They make their way to the ring as we get ready for the first match of the evening. After Goldust and Rhodes finish their entrance, Ryback’s music hits and out he comes with Curtis Axel and Axel’s grandfather, Larry “The Axe” Hennig, who is from the Minneapolis area. Hennig gets a nice pop and a decent “Larry, Larry” chant from the Minneapolis fans.

The bell sounds and our first match is officially underway. The action is insanely fast-paced early on. Goldust ends up hitting a crazy dive out to the floor on Ryback and Axel. On that note, we head to a mid-match commercial.

When we return from commercial, Ryback is pounding away on Goldust in the corner of the ring. Ryback stomps away at Goldust on the mat a bit and then tags Axel in. Axel picks up where Ryback left off. We see a shot of Larry Hennig watching on from outside the ring. Hennig has a big smile on his face as his grandson Curtis Axel continues to work over Goldust.

Axel tags Ryback back into the ring. The two hit a double-team move on Goldust in their corner and then Axel heads back out to the apron. Ryback hoists Goldust up for a suplex and holds him up in the air for several seconds before slamming him down to the mat. He tags Axel back in. Goldust starts fighting back now as the crowd rallies behind him. Both guys double-clothesline each other down. Axel is able to get to his feet first and he makes the tag to Ryback.

Ryback beats up Goldust a bit, but Goldust still has some fire left in him. He hits a huricanrana on Ryback and then sends Ryback over-the-top and out to the floor. Both guys make the tag to their respective partners. Rhodes takes the hot tag and is flying all over the place, beating Axel from one side of the ring to the other. Rhodes hits a big moonsault off-the-top on Axel. Rhodes hits an Alabama Slam on Axel. Ryback yanks Rhodes out to the floor but Rhodes hits his disaster kick.

Rhodes jumps off the top-rope to come back into the ring. He was looking to connect on Axel with a missile dropkick but Axel caught him coming in and powerbombs him. All four guys get involved briefly, ending with Rhodes hitting the Cross Rhodes for the 1-2-3. The Rhodes Brothers get the win.

Winners: Goldust & Cody Rhodes

Byron Saxton Interviews The Usos

Backstage, Byron Saxton introduces The Usos. The Usos talk about how their relatives have held the same exact WWE Tag-Team Championships that they are going to compete for tonight. They talk about how they respect The New Age Outlaws and everything they’ve accomplished, but tonight is a new era. They say they have two words for them, “it’s over.”

Renee Young In The Social Media Lounge

We go back to the social media lounge where Renee Young reads off some more tweets from the WWE Universe.

Final Check-In With The Expert Panel

We shoot back to the expert panel where Josh Mathews asks the guys for their predictions on tonight’s Elimination Chamber match. Henry, Miz and Mysterio talk about some of the guys they think has the chance to win tonight before Mathews wraps up the Kickoff Show. We fade away and we’re now just moments away from the start of the WWE Elimination Chamber pay-per-view!

      I agree with all but I think the tag champs match could go either way. HHH might let his friends have anther Wrestlemania match and drop the title there or the next night on Raw.

  • Flying Hippo

    Here’s the livestream i’m watching right now http://pwtalk.net/cgi-bin/protect.cgi?File=livestream2.html

  • pwnez

    Surprised the Rhodes brothers won. Kinda wanted them to lose so it would set up a feud.

    • CJCarter

      I wouldn’t waste it on a pre-show match. There’s always tomorrow on Raw

  • http://www.gofundme.com/nzdpa4 Stay Phokus

    the new age outlaws are basically triple h’s Pat Patterson and Gerald Brisco

    • Brian Jones

      The New Age Stooges

      • thatguy

        …or the Stooge Age Outlaws LOL

        • Donny Octave

          New Age Stooges are better

    • brad

      So true.

    • Buzzard Follower

      yep that sums it up nicley

    • SOBI

      As long as they put someone over at WM there is no problem
      but you have to admit out of all the Tag teams competing for the title NAO are best on the mic

    • QuiteFrankly2k

      To be honest, I really hope they lose to the Usos at Mania.

  • Ethan

    Believe in the shield

  • Buzzard Follower

    THAT MATCH WAS FU**KING AMAZING WYATTS SHIELD MATCH OF THE YEAR

  • Buzzard Follower

    nice promo from christian

  • Pat m

    Wyatts vs shield=match of the freaking year!!

    • DocR

      It reminded me of days of Hardys vs Dudleys vs E&C

      • Pat m

        Those tlc matches were great!

  • pwnez

    Shield vs Wyatt’s lived up to the hype. The feud and match was great.

    • SOBI

      Yeah man easily Match of the Night and
      although its early but also a contender for match of the Year

      • Archimedes_Slim

        Agree 100%. Everything about that match worked, and the spots were great. The crowd was behind everything they did, and the table was the cherry on top.

      • mrchopper

        Right now I’d kill for a Best of the Shield DVD – from their first PPV match to this they have been unbelievably good. They could all retire now and go down in history as probably having the highest percentage of top-drawer matches as a group. Singles runs, so far not so much.

        • SOBI

          Yes they’ve had some amazing matches
          I just hope when they split up all of them are given chances to progress cause they are all great Roman will definitely get a chance, but Rollins and Ambrose deserve chances as well, cause Rollins is brilliant in the ring and Ambrose can talk with the best of them

        • scott

          They don’t have that many good matches dude

    • Nicolai

      I was there, the arena was going BALLISTIC for that match! It was a great crowd, and I gotta ask, how loud we’re we on tv!?? Because the arena was insane.

      • pwnez

        It came off very well. I could hear all the “Lets go Shield/Lets go Wyatt’s” chants.

        • Nicolai

          Good to hear, those guys deserved it. Great match!

    • QuiteFrankly2k

      Rollins was easily the highlight of the match. Don’t care what anyone else says.

      • SOBI

        Yes Rollins was extra awesome last night.
        the german suplex thing was amazing

        • QuiteFrankly2k

          The spot with the German Suplex was amazing. He was doing things that made Reigns and Ambrose look bad. Rollins was on fire. People say he’s going to get left behind, personally I think he’s great. I think he well deff be WWE WHC sometime in the future of his career. He reminds me of Jeff Hardy.

      • raVen

        Rollins Face run started Sunday.
        As I said over a year ago Reigns is a star, Rollins is a great baby face, ambrose has disappeared.

        • Donny Octave

          I think you might be right. Reigns and Rollins seem to have made their position known, but Ambrose looks like he’ll be the one who gets lost in the shuffle when it’s all said and done sadly. Looks like that U.S. Title really does do more harm than good.

          • raVen

            I don’t think it’s the US title at all. He’s been in huge storylines with everyone else it’s just that everyone else has elevated while ambrose has stayed the same.

        • QuiteFrankly2k

          Well literally the guy disappeared..he was no where to be found lol. But yeah I can see Rollins being a great Jeff Hardy like baby face! Im not sure if you guys will agree but i think he can do so! I mean for gods sake NXT was on his back. He was their first champion!

          • raVen

            he has started to show that he has that great baby face comeback fire that gets people off their seats, he sells like a million $$$, he’s going to be a great player in years to come

          • QuiteFrankly2k

            I have been commenting this on the site for a while now, but you want to know what role Seth Rollins can play in WWE? Jeff Hardy. He can be the new Jeff. The kids loved him and the older fans liked his work as well. Jeff wasn’t the greatest on the mic and Rollins is a lot better but this guy is going to be really freaking good.

          • raVen

            that’s not an insult at all. I think he’s above Jeff tho. Jeff did CRAZY stunts for years before given a shot, Seth has solid in ring work with huge spots but not nearly as many. He can mat wrestle, he can chain wrestle. I really think he’s the next D Bry-internet loves him casual slowly gets behind him and then he’s suddenly one of the top 3 pops each week

          • QuiteFrankly2k

            Seth Rollins could be both. He can cater to both internet and casual fans. I mean he’s crazy good in the ring and as well on the mic! Casual fans love the high flying baby faces lol but then we internet fans will notice his in ring a ability.

      • Donny Octave

        Seth has stepped up his game big time lately.

  • Frank

    I will go crazy of joy if Christian some how won the match! But he sadly not. Hopeful Bryan wins though.

  • Hollywood Cena

    i love this crowd

  • Buzzard Follower

    del rio is getting the loudest cheers of his career and batista getting booed out the building

  • Buzzard Follower

    break his arm chant

  • pwnez

    ADR carried Batista throughout that entire match. Batista is still horrible in the ring. His match at ‘Mania will most likely suck.

  • Buzzard Follower

    honestly i thought the watch wasnt bad del rio carried it but it was decent

    • Ethan

      I hate batista

      • brad

        I love batista.

      • Orestis

        He hates you too!

        • Ethan

          Orton is going to beat the crap out of him

    • brad

      I knew orton would win, well I said that or lesnar would steal someone’s spot but either way I just want to see the animal dave batista win the gold at mania.

      • Buzzard Follower

        thats fine to each there own i want bryan which is fine too

    • 9 year old boy

      I loved the Bootista chants. I laughed so hard.

      • G.I.R.L.

        I love your avatar.

      • Nicolai

        My section got that going and It took a bit for be to understand what they were saying! Funny as hell. Miz was taking all sorts of heat from us about maryse

    • thatguy

      agreed…Del rio made that match worth watching…

  • scott

    IWC logic Del Rio is boring and he sucks. He needs to go away. Throw him in the ring with Batista…oh Del Rio carried Batista

    • BOOCH

      IWC Logic is an oxymoron.

      • scott

        Aint that the truth

        • BOOCH

          When they announced Batista return in January everyone was excited. And for years people wanted Batista to come back. He does and now they hate him just cause he won the Royal Rumble.

          • scott

            Yea I know man it annoys the hell outa me. I understand fully people want or wanted DB to win the rumble. But fans these days will boo every single person on the roster to support one guy and that’s kinda going too far. I personally am glad Batista is back. I enjoyed him when he used to run Smackdown back in the day. But I guess well wait and see what happens for that main event mania match which I don’t think will change.

          • brad

            Totally agree I would get into this but I’ve already stated multiple times that I am happy he is back as he is one of my all time favorites and I think that the fans are pretty dumb to boo him just for the simple reason of him stealing Bryan and punks spotlight. If he would’ve returned at any other time then he would be the most over guy in the company but honestly I think he just about picked the worst time to come back in a sense. All In all I am happy that he is back and I am happy that he won the rumble and I am happy that he is going to headline wrestlemania.

          • scott

            Yea me too man. I enjoyed him when he was there the first time. At least everyone will get their way though. As soon as GOTG comes around hell disappear for a while to promote the movie plus hes only signed on for 2 years so its not like hell be around for long. I did want Bryan to win the rumble but im not gonna boo Batista because WWE officials made the wrong decision in having him win the Rumble

          • brad

            I’m glad he won the rumble and I’m glad that he is back. So you won’t see me complaining about the decision to have him main event wm.

          • msk343

            People has the right to “boo” whoever they want to. I personally never liked Batista. I like Randy Orton (though I dont want him to be the champion), some hate them both.. After Goldberg and Brock Lesnar left, there just was nobody left to carry the show.

          • G.I.R.L.

            For Smackdown, you mean? The talent during that time was pretty good. Much better than either Lesnar or Goldberg.

          • brad

            I never said that people couldn’t boo whoever they want, all I’m saying is if dave would’ve came back at just about any other time then he would probably be getting the biggest pops every night but because of the bad timing he is getting booed.

          • G.I.R.L.

            Given the countless years where we had dead silence, I figure it’s an upgrade that the fans are actually cheering someone these days.

          • pwnez

            To be fair, not everyone was thrilled with the idea of Batista returning.

          • Archimedes_Slim

            It’s pretty easy to explain. Timing and booking are extremely important to a Stars popularity as talent and charisma. Just because people want to see you doesn’t mean they want it to turn into the 24/7 all one guy all the time show. Lesner, and RVD set a good precedent when they came back. Both men immediately became major players, but weren’t thrust into the spotlight, and didn’t take up the primary focus away from the guys people wanted to see. Upon his first return match Batista wins, and removes the guy that the people overwhelmingly wanted to see in the spotlight. Not only that but he has now won the Royal Rumble match TWICE, which is primarily seen as a star making match that only comes around once a year. Almost no one would say that Batista needed that win.

          • Josh

            Well the crux of the problem is just that. He comes back and immediately gets a title shot. Not only a title shot but a title shot that has him headlining ‘Mania. Just no. Especially everything that has been building with Bryan and Orton. Fact of the matter is it’s one thing for someone to come back but not when it gets immediately in the way of an ongoing feud.

          • Johnson

            If Batista would have been an actual RR surprise and not advertised at all prior (and no dirt sheet spoiling BS), fans would have probably not cared about Bryan at the time. They would have been too hyped for Batista’s return.

          • *sniff sniff* I SMELL PUSSY!!

            they’re all hypocrites man i believe db will get his payoff soon

          • G.I.R.L.

            People wanted him back but not at the expense of better superstars on the roster. Look at the whole picture and not just one side of it. The man isn’t the Rock: he shouldn’t be thrust into the title picture on his second night back.

    • The One, The Only, The Ellis!

      I would invite everyone who agrees with this great man to my Barbeque Cookout!

      • scott

        Well if that be the case you’d have a lot of ignorant IWC fans showing up to your barbecue haha

        • The One, The Only, The Ellis!

          WHAT?!?!?!!?! I ‘m agreeing with what you said and I want to invite everyone with your great similar mindset to a cookout or eat at a local Wendys.

          I’m not a fan of the IWC fans, which I like to call the Internet Police!

    • msk343

      dude it aint no longer the IWC booing Batista and supporting D-Bry (maybe that was the case for The Rock but he got huge pops all the time)…its a very large portion of the wwe universe who dont wanna see batista in the main event..

      • scott

        and like I said in one of my other comments. Its only everybody cheering for one guy. That’s when it gets annoying and stupid to boo everyone else out of the building to support one guy is kind of absurd

        • G.I.R.L.

          You’ll have to forgive the fans for showing their distaste of something. They definitely have no right to show when they’re unhappy.

    • pwnez

      ADR’s character is boring. No one really bashed his wrestling skills, just the fact that his gimmick is extremely stale. He carried Batista to an ok match. Batista was never good in the ring and clearly he never will be.

      • scott

        Well that’s your opinion I guess because I used to enjoy watching him when he was there 4 years ago. And on here I see everyone bashing Del Rio’s in and out of ring skills all the time. I guess all that disappears when Batista is up against him.

  • Ethan

    Yes! Yes! Yes!

  • Buzzard Follower

    the crowd is calling orton a pu**y way to go Minnesota

    • BOOCH

      haha, I thought that’s what they said, but I wasn’t sure. I hadn’t heard that word on WWE since Shane was there.

  • Bodacious Bob

    Great now we probably get Kane Vs. Bryan at Mania. A match absolutely no one wants to see. If it’s Orton Vs. Bootista at Mania that will be BAD FOR BUSINESS.

  • http://www.rabidpictures.com yrabadi

    Quick thoughts:

    – Wyatt’s/Shield = match of the night
    – Christian eliminating Sheamus = Awesome + WM feud? Yes please.
    – Sheamus brogue kicking Orton through Chamber glass = highlight of the match.
    – Bryan losing = predictable.
    – Announcers acknowledging Bryan being screwed around with since SS = interesting.
    – Batista/Orton at WMXXX = bad move. Crowd chants ‘boring’ and ‘bootista’
    – Me buying the WWE Network after tonight = not likely.

    • Buzzard Follower

      same good ppv though

      • http://www.rabidpictures.com yrabadi

        Agreed. Far more good than bad. No doubt about that.

    • SOBI

      I wish Bryan wins the title at WM but that looks unlikely so
      I never thought I’d say this but I wish that some how HHH ends up in
      Batista vs Orton match it’ll be better than just Batista/Orton
      I think an all out evolution triple threat would be better than a singles match

      • Brent Genito

        All they would need would be Ric Flair as the special guest referee and that match would be one I’d look forward to.

      • http://www.rabidpictures.com yrabadi

        Batista/Orton is in big time trouble. But if WWE has taught us anything it is that they are extremely stubborn. I’m sure Vince thinks with weeks left before WMXXX, they can get the crowd behind Batista and make this thing work. If they keep it as Orton vs Batista, it should be really interesting to see how the crowd reacts.

        • mrchopper

          What’s bothering me is why the Wyatts are helping out Orton so often. What’s in it for them? Them being involved in the Batista match (disqualifying Orton) would solve the problem of him not being able to go more than ten minutes, but God it would cheapen both the belt(s) and the PPV if the main event was a ten-minute DQ finish – unless Orton was immediately stuck into another Championship match…

          • SOBI

            I think the point is that Wyatts are against Cena and they usually cost cena the match these days,
            It looks like Wyatt vs Cena at WM

          • http://www.rabidpictures.com yrabadi

            I think it’s less about helping Orton out and more about targetting Cena. If it was about helping Orton, I would have thought they would be appearing during more of Orton’s bouts and attacking the opponent, which isn’t the case. I do think there may be a tie between The Authority and The Wyatt’s, which is why HHH may have warned The Shield not to get involved with The Wyatt’s weeks ago – but long-term storytelling like this in today’s WWE would be giving the company far too much credit.

        • msk343

          You know what… I’ll love it, if the crowd just remains completely silent during their match…. thats the best way to send a message

          • http://www.rabidpictures.com yrabadi

            Agreed.

          • the4thwiseman

            I think no one should reply to this bin Ladin look alike…who can’t afford the network with his cab drivers pay..

    • scott

      I didn’t think they would budge on Daniel Bryan being in the main event. It’s kinda sad honestly because over the past few weeks it just seems like they are trying to close that door.

      • heterosexual

        hard to tell. with such an obvious screwjob it may be to pave the way for him to get in

      • http://www.rabidpictures.com yrabadi

        Yes and no. The only glimmer of hope here is how they had the announcers react to it, and then even show the audience members being bummed out over it. They never used to do that. Now they’re acknowledging the fact that it’s ridiculous the title hasn’t been put on Bryan yet. It is something to note, I think. It could be WWE trolling fans, or it could be the beginning of something for Bryan. Here’s hoping he gets a juicy feud for WMXXX.

        • scott

          That juicy feud is gonna be against Kane it looks like to me

          • http://www.rabidpictures.com yrabadi

            Sigh… sounds more over-cooked than juicy.

    • msk343

      I was sure Randy Orton was going to win so I was looking forward to Hulk Hogan’s return rather than the ppv

      • http://www.rabidpictures.com yrabadi

        I knew it would come down to Bryan and Orton, but yes, it was rather obvious they weren’t going to put the strap on Bryan. I honestly think it’s going to come down to Bryan/Kane at WMXXX, and that pains me to no end. No disrespect to Kane, but at least give Bryan a match with HHH. It will mean more.

        • mrchopper

          Ah, to have Punk return and have Punk and Bryan vs. Kane and HHH. I could more than live with that, especially if you throw it into a tables match. We could finally get to see Punk Pepsi Plunge HHH through a table..!

          • http://www.rabidpictures.com yrabadi

            lmao… It’s kinda a shame we’ll never see the Pepsi Plunge on WWE TV (unless it was on in the early WWE-ECW days and I missed it, but don’t think it was).
            Anyway, yes, I too have thought of Punk/Bryan vs HHH/Kane. It would likely be the best scenario they could possibly come up with at this point for Bryan and Punk. The only thing as good as that would be Bryan vs HHH. If we get Bryan vs Kane, I will be disappointed.

          • G.I.R.L.

            We have seen the PPlunge once on WWETv; Survivor Series ’99: Chyna vs Jericho.

            LOL it sucks that Punk was never allowed to use the move. :-(

          • http://www.rabidpictures.com yrabadi

            Cray! Had no idea. I’m going to have to source that one out. Y2J/Chyna feud was pretty dope from what I recall. Holly in there was kind of nice to see as well. Fond memories.

    • superturbo

      Nice not bad yrabadi, here’s some of my thoughts expressed just like yours!

      – Big E Langston Vs Jack Swagger = excellent I.C. match (both men benefited from it)

      – Wyatt’s/Shield = Great friggin bout, hope Wrestlemania 30 sees the sequel to this match

      – Titus Vs Darren Young = Great match, nice to hear Titus new (sick) entrance music as well.

      – Batista Vs Del Rio = bad match, WWE still couldn’t hide the fact Batista unhealthy, so Del Rio carries the match via attacking a mostly weakened and beat up on Batista.

      – The Usos Vs New Age Outlaws = Great bout, WWE have to crown The Usos by mania!

      – (Me buying the WWE Network after tonight = not likely.) same here!, their stuff will most likely be leaked to torrent sites within the month or so anyways.

      – (Sheamus brogue kicking Orton through Chamber glass highlight of the match.) = Actually ties with the Cesaro swing on Cena as the moment of the night i think?!

      • http://www.rabidpictures.com yrabadi

        Nice list!

        Yeah, I didn’t mention Big E vs Swagger. It wasn’t a bad match. I’m actually surprised at how over the Real Americans are. I wouldn’t be surprised to see them both go face. Crowds are into it.

        As for Wyatt’s/Shield, good call! I rematch could def. be lined up, especially with the Shield not totally combusting, however with the set-up of Cean/Wyatt going further, sadly, I think we may have to settle for a RAW match (which will still likely be awesome). Sad though… With WMXXX being a celebration of WM’s, would have been awesome to see The Shield vs The Wyatts in a TLC match. Fans can dream! :)

      • Optimus Prime

        It’s leaked already. I’m downloading all PPV’s, RAW, SmackDown for the last 5 years, never paid to watch it

    • pwnez

      The p*ssy chants directed at Orton was amazing.

      • QuiteFrankly2k

        Yeah, I knew they were chanting that but I couldn’t make it.

        Yeah, that crowd was surprisingly vocal. I think the RR crowd really set a precedent.

      I bet all the(CM Punk, Boring, Asshole, Awful, Chants And probably when guys who are supposed to be face but get booed chants.) Are all going to be edited so that way we can’t hear them on the network….WATCH!!!!

      • http://www.rabidpictures.com yrabadi

        I would agree with that.

    • Orestis

      The chamber match was not that good.Other than a few Cesaro spots , Sheamus breaking the “glass”in ortons face and a few others it was “raw” paced.But yea Shield vs Wyatts made the show!Also I laughed how the “glass” wouldn’t break!

  • scott

    Just like I said nothing changed. They didn’t budge at all not only is DB not gonna be in the main event, but he wont fighting for the title and worst of all hell be fighting Kane. Looks like Cena and Wyatt are fighting at mania also. The only way to spice up the big title match would be to throw Lesnar in it

    • taker12

      What about HHH as special guest referee? lol

  • Buzzard Follower

    swagger/langston B+ good opener i cant believe biges leg can bend that way
    nao/uso c decent match nice to see usos dominate and and not suffer a bad loss the outlaws come out more heelish
    titus/ypung C- boring at times with 2 good spots to keep it somewhat intresting
    shield wyatts A++++ words do not do justice and i think rollins really shined we talk about reigns and ambrose but dont dare forget about rollins
    divas meh hell of a kick by tam not grading as nothing happened
    batist rio B not good not awfull and not one sided decent match that davey wasnt terrible but still hes the wm main event un believable
    chamber A one of the best chamber matches in a long time despite the interference but if bryan doesnt get the title match at wm its all for nothing everyone shined in this match great effort all around

    • scott

      I don’t talk about those 2. I know Ambrose and Reigns are both overrated. Rollins is clearly the best wrestler of the 3. Its not even close.

  • MOON CENA

    .. Never seen a bigger ” F*CK YOU ” to fans that tonights PPV .. utter BULLSHITTT .. YAYYY we have ORTON VS BATISTA for WRESTLEMANIA .. no one gives a flying fuc* about this match .. WRESTLEMANIA 30 card is the weakest card ever , dum WWE asssholes ..

  • LaParkaXV

    I thought the PPV was good overall. The Shield vs The Wyatts 1 time deal? That match was crazy good. I also really enjoyed the IC title match.

    The Main event….ah….it was good up until it became so over booked i thought i was watching TNA. IF they are staying on track with Orton vs Batista….they get what they deserve….the crowd in New Orleans completely sh! tting on it!

    • Joe

      As a company selling a product there can be nothing more valuable than your customer telling you what they want. Companies spend thousands on surveys, focus groups etc. WWE has this built in, at every show, and still doesn’t want to better improve and sell their product. WWE egos will eventually learn they cant force feed their customer base what THEY think is best. WWE network is gonna flop hard as a result of the customer not being taken care of. Because in the end, its a product and if no one buys, that ego will deflate.

      • BasedWorld

        Why would the WWE do that when they have no competition lol. The most successful companies make you buy into them instead of them trying to buy you. How is the network going to flop when most people want the old(golden age) shows anyway and you are getting the next ppv’s for the low. People like you that complains will still watch every week and the kids will continue to go with their parents since they ware doing it for them these days anyways.

        • The One, The Only, The Ellis!

          Thanks for living in reality, Mr.BasedWorld!

      • Cujo999

        Well, storytelling is never as simple as just giving people what they want. If you did, then nothing bad would ever happen to the main characters, and there would be very little drama involved. The most popular babyface in the company would just be pushed like John Cena until the entire audience got sick of them. I get that in today’s society of wanting instant gratification, a lot of people don’t want to sit through a slow burn storyline anymore, but in storytelling, it’s hard to appreciate the hero’s successes if they also don’t have failures and obstacles to overcome.

        • superturbo

          “but in storytelling, it’s hard to appreciate the hero’s successes if they also don’t have failures and obstacles to overcome.”

          ^Really? So Hulk Hogan was the ‘Daniel Bryan’ of the 1980s was he now! Yeah i guess so, i mean he really had his failures in struggling to overcome obstacles in losing to; Andre The Giant, King Kong Bundy, Paul Orndoff, Greg Valentine, Ron Bass, Iron Sheik and the heels of the WWF roster back then right. Oh wait a minute, weren’t those mostly wins and not losses for Hulk!

          • G.I.R.L.

            That doesn’t work this day & age. The 80s wrestling was more kid friendly than it is today. None of the top stars during the A.E. were instantly rewarded match after match. Those are the stars that stood out.

        • Joe

          its gone on so long that its beyond the span one would see during a “storyline”. Right now i feel like WWE as a company is feeling a little butt hurt that the fans boo the stars they choose to push and Elimination Chamber was a stab at the fans. Nothing more.

      • Johnson

        It’s $10 bucks a month for all the shows of the year, plus all past ppvs and eventually past tv footage of all prior companies. Yeah…. it’s going to flop big time.

      • scott

        Hate to tell you dude but the number of kids parents who will buy the network will out number the number of IWC fans who decide they aren’t gonna buy it anymore. If fans can buy the PPV’s for cheaper almost all parents will line up

    • superturbo

      You guys are so sick (‘cool’) for capturing these images! i was like; and we’re heading to the 30th anniversary of Wrestlemania this year and Batista Vs Orton is the main event for certain now, *sigh*!

      Wrestling needs more than one company, Even if you don’t like TNA and all the other indies companies, when WWE dicks around with you for this long. I wouldn’t be surprised if fans jumped ship after Wrestlemania 30. cos even after WM and Bryan became champion eventually?, what kind of environment is he going to have to work in afterwards? One where he’s constantly screwed over or had to fight 3 times as hard to collect a win!

      No thank you.

    • satishwarne708

      My favorite WWE superstar at the moment even before Bryan.

    • Noah

      He may have stole the show in the match but you have to give props to Roman Reigns also.When The Shield does break up,I don’t see Rollins and Ambrose as main event guys.They will be more on the IC title level.Roman Reigns will be a future WWE World Heavyweight Champion.I’d say by WM 31 or at WM 31.

      • https://twitter.com/StrangeDeranged Pozessed

        At WM 31 or WM 31?…. Sounds likely…

        • Josh Knepshield

          He said at WM 31 or BY WM 31. READ.

        • Donny Octave

          Allow me to translate since some of you simple-minded people can’t seem to understand… Noah said that he see’s Roman Reigns as the WWE World Heavyweight Champion by the time WM 31 Comes.. OR he will become the champ at WM31.

          • https://twitter.com/StrangeDeranged Pozessed

            Wow, somebody else had to point it out after reading the guy’s post who pointed it out! It is funny because you are saying it as if you are the first to comment about it. Trying to get some glory huh?

          • Donny Octave

            Nah, mainly making fun of Josh. Personally, i couldn’t care less how anyone types on here.

      • Buzzard Follower

        i agree its just i believe that many see rollins as the 3rd wheel and all im saying is dont underestimate rollins

        • Donny Octave

          It seems more like Ambrose is the third wheel.. His psychotic tendencies are gonna be what ends The Shield imo.

    • QuiteFrankly2k

      Best superstar in that match by far. Pulled out things I was seeing him do back in ROH. Great work by him, I don’t see him top starring it but a Jeff Hardy like position would be great for Rollins.

    • G.I.R.L.

      Honestly, I prefer Reigns & Ambrose. Not sure what it is about Rollins that I find disinteresting.

      He did do a great job, though. All 6 men did.

  • https://twitter.com/bushysowavvey Triple X

    Bryan getting screwed again. No surprise. Nice PPV all around though.

  • SOBI

    Cesaro needs the title on him more than Bryan. Cesaro is a god in that ring. He is what champions should be like.

    • G.I.R.L.

      Mr. Roberts, this I can agree with.

      However, I don’t want the belt thrown on him like a prop. If there’s anyone that can match and exceed DBry’s influence, it’s the great Cesaro.

  • beardncicici

    The main event of wrestlemainia the super biwl for the wwe is going to get heavy heat booed out of the stadium the fans cant stand eaither superstar in the match… how is it “good for business” to have a really bad and botchy title match at mania… at this point its almost like wwe is teasing that there going to give us what we want and then at the last second screw the fans again to just show that no matter how bad we boo and chant our opinions do not matter and there going to do what they what congrats TNA I mean wcw I mean wwe….

  • The One, The Only, The Ellis!

    Pretty good PPV, but it was not as good as the Royal Rumble. I don’t mind the great Batista, but I hope Randall Keith Orton is not in the main event at Wrestlemania, since he’s so damn stiff in the ring. ABIGAIL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Shutthehellup

    I’m so sick of you IWC idiots. I understand that now days your not used to long feuds with a huge payoff in the end but come on. This is how it used to be back in the 60’s 70’s 80’s and 90’s. I mean if the Internet was around in the day of Sammartino, you people would complain worse. You guys are constantly complaining to go back to the attitude era, really? You were Ok with Austin feuding with vince for YEARS but 6 months of Bryan being “screwed” you are freaking out. But here’s the great part, you’re pissed off. That means the people in the ring and in the back did their jobs. If Bryan won you would have been happy, but now you’re more pissed because he didn’t win. So now you’ll confine to watch hoping you’ll get your payoff. This is how it works. And honestly this is what’s best for business. They can’t always do what you want, what’s the fun in that. There isn’t any, that would be boring. So for the first time in a long time they go old school story telling and you complain. Why don’t you quit complaining and just watch. You might be surprised in the end.

      What’s the thing that is making everybody upset is that there is a paper champion holding the most important belt in the company and he’s “defending” said championship to a guy who just comes back and is given an opportunity over countless other guys in the back who have huge potential as champions. This is the main event at your biggest pay-per-view: a match between two guys nobody wants to see. Plus, every Randy Orton title match from the time he cashed in until now has had interference allowing the Paper Champion to prevail: the fans are tired of this. When you have huge negative pops for the two guys who will be fighting at WM30, that should tell you there’s something wrong with your product – WWF/E isn’t listening. When the fans start tuning out and not buying the product and PPVs, maybe then they will.

  • rashad jackson

    ok …i dont care much about DB losing…but for him to be screwed AGAIN pisses me off…im just mad that since SS hes been getting screwed…here is a FUN FACT

    Bryan has only won 3 PPV matches since Wrestlemania. 1 was a tag match & in 2 he still lost the title… #FACT
    if that doesnt tell you something then idk..
    yes people are saying its a slow build up to him winning….how long will that be?? i have never seen a a wrestler get built up THAT SLOW its getting to the point where i dont care about daniel bryan anymore…wwe needs to stop beating around the bush…give bryan the title or dont….that simple

    • Cujo999

      Jericho was built very slowly. In interviews, he has talked about jobbing 6 straight PPV’s and still being the 2nd most popular face in the company next to The Rock. Honestly, I think that any chance of Bryan headlining WM went out the window when Punk walked out the door. They have obviously been building for HHH to take on one of the guys he has been screwing with at WM, and when Punk, who was supposed to have that spot, walked out the door, that really only left Bryan as a logical opponent. They will probably have Bryan go over HHH at ‘mania, then win the title at Extreme Rules. Orton being in the main event isn’t a huge deal for me, but the issue I have is that Batista still looks like total garbage, and the match is guaranteed to be bad. If they want to fix the ‘mania main event, they need to have somebody take Batista’s spot from him.

      • rashad jackson

        but hhh has a damn ego up his ass i dont think he is going to let DB beat him at WM….so dont be surprised if DB loses
        this website was apparently talking about Xtreme rules since its in DB home town on how he MAY win there….IF he gets screwed at xtreme rules then i will offically hate WWE lol

        i like batista more than orton! both are decent but both like all other wrestlers needs NEW moves

        • Cujo999

          I dunno about that. HHH is 8-9 for his career at WM, including 3-6 in his last 9. The guy has never really shown that jobbing at ‘mania is much of an issue for him, even though he gets massive heat for not making Booker T at WM19. I think that logically, it would very difficult to put Bryan in a title match at Extreme Rules after jobbing him out at ‘mania, so Bryan will probably go over HHH.

        • G.I.R.L.

          WWE has a thing with screwing stars in their hometowns.

    great ppv amazing spot and brodie lee is still in my eyes the best indie talent yet to no hold a belt. Divas was ballz cause that was get a drink match, bryan is amazing still christian and sheamus need to retire, john cena and orton need to be a tag team.
    big e and swagger great opening match. all matches were great some better then others but the ppv was worth the price of cm punk chants and bootista chant was great.

    I gave the ppv a 8 ballz out of 10 better then the ufc ppv yesterday.

  • Gamexxx07

    I knew it will be a risk of having orton vs batista for wwe world heavyweight champion,Is not about me is about the fans what wwe needs, The more wwe avoid the fans the more wwe will suffer with the ratings and fans will not buy tickets in near future,Because all wwe they care about is money! Since we have to deal with orton vs batista since triple h did stop daniel bryan for becoming a champion now triple h is going to pay for the sins by daniel bryan screwing hhh at mania Not only is revenge is punishment!

  • Ayatollah of rock N rolla

    Soo the betting odds were 100% spot on. Also, that finish was horribly predictable, liked the set up to wyatt Vs cena tho.

  • satishwarne708

    Wow the Shield vs Wyatt match was GOLD.Rollins was awesome flying all over the place and took a nasty bump through the table,Reigns push continues,what happen to Ambrose there?Wyatts did great too as heels!Chamber match was good knew Bryan was going to get screwed again…we are stuck at moment with Boo-tista and BOrting as the main event at WM 30.Lastly though is del Rio a face again or was it a one off?

  • JaffaJoose

    Wait, Cesaro suplexed Cena and Bryan at once? This I must see…

  • dae

    Glad I didn’t waste my money on this piece of crap “main event!”
    Randy v. Batista at WM30: I’m not buying that piece of crap either! Not even for $10 with the Network would I waste my money on this product. It’s pretty bad when you want to spend the money, go to wrestling events, and you get screwed out of a great card because of lame storylines and finishes.
    The reason I quit watching WCW was because of every major match ending with some type of interference or some b.s. finish. Well, I’m really feeling that WWF/E is losing my viewership.
    The worst thing is, with TNA barely surviving, the best wrestling show could have been on Thursday nights but with their recycling of WWF/E storylines (in a lame way, mind you). I really wish some other promotion could get their act together and challenge the WWF/E because McMahon needs competition to freshen up his act.

  • Noah

    At first I wasn’t going to get EC cause I was going to watch The Walking Dead instead.But I ended up watching EC cause I wanted to see The Wyatt family/Shield match.Watched EC for free.I streamed it.Loved the Wyatt family/Shield match!!!.Best match of the ppv.2nd best I’d say was the chamber match.There was no need to see that much of BNB.EC was a good ppv in the end.

  • Johnson

    I remember just before WM 16, The Rock came out on the mic and said….. “If WM is going to be Triple H vs. The Big Show…then WM is going to absolutely SUCK!” Lmao
    Then they added Rock and Mick Foley in that four way.
    I’m thinking the same thing now….. if WM 30 is going to be Batista vs. Randy Orton, then WM is going to absolutely suck…….. and might put people to sleep in the process.

    The only way to fix WM since the audience is going to obviously shiit on the main event is to add Daniel Bryan to the mix in a triple threat.
    They should have Bryan win the title on RAW, this way Orton can get his rematch at WM and have that triple threat.
    Or else.. . fans will shiit on the main event, and it will make WM 30 look like shiit. People will probably chant ‘boring’ ‘this match sucks’ ‘change the channel’ , and chant other guys names. It will actually look embarrassing as the closing match to the event, and make it look like subpar garbage.

    I wouldn’t be saying this if people weren’t shiiting all over Batista right now. But because they are, they’d better fix it. They have to improvise now to make WM look good. If not, it’s going to make a lot of people regret the purchase and no matter who wins between Orton/Batista it will have a lackluster dull reaction when it’s over. Exactly what they don’t want!
    I’m assuming they are saving that big Daniel Bryan win for WM 30, that they’ll squeeze him in somehow. It’s the only thing that makes sense here anyway.

    • G.I.R.L.

    I hope this year’s mania is better than the last. Rock vs Cena 2 ? yeah. it was even more lame than the first time. WM29 was short on match time to. With so much promo time leading up to, why did Rock and Cena each get video packages ? The one between the first and second match was like 4 minutes ! And then they cut the Tons of Funk 8 man tag match ! If the roster basically has 32 guys (not counting divas, Batista, Punk, HHH or UT or Kane), that could be 16 faces and 16 heels, creating 256 singles matches, not counting rematches and not doing any tag matches. If each match was 5 minutes, that’s well over 20 hours worth of wrestling ! Add in filler guys like William Regal, Alex Riley and Curt Hawkins to the rotation and add 20 minutes to championship matches, do some 6-man tags, and there’s almost no end to the lineups going for 30 hours or more. Never before seen matches like Kofi against Sin Cara, or Axel against Barrett, and no need for anyone to talk for 10 minutes (which is about how long this post is ! )

      Orton vs. Batista stinks…. Personally I’d rather watch Cena and the Rock again.. Cena/Rock III THRICE in a lifetime
