Be something if Banks/Bayley don't win going from friends to foes and back again. The tandem was there for the rumoured creation of WWE Women's Tag Champions. I'd be surprised if Sasha Banks is WWE RAW Women's Champion going into WrestleMania. Only way I see that happening is Becky costing Ronda by interference at the Rumble for what Ronda did to Becky and Charlotte at TLC.

Wrestling tropes that make no sense: I'm having a feud with someone, we're exchanging wins back and forth, and then suddenly they get a title shot. So I interfere in the match to make sure they don't win the title! Then next time we fight, they'll be really angry! 

But think about it. If you interfere in the match to make sure they DO win the title, then the next time you fight they'll be really confused. And if you beat them, you just beat the Champion. So either you are the new champ already, or you're certainly the next challenger. And if you lose, you lost to the champion, no shame in that. Making sure they don't win, that's just stupid.

Assuming the teams for this will be Bayley/Sasha, Nia/Tamina, Riott Squad, IIconics, & Absolution. I'm curious on the third SDL team. I really wish they didn't use Moment of Bliss to make the announcement. Would have been nice to have have HHH or Steph explain the specifics of the belts. Before now we weren't even sure the belts would be shared between shows.

My guess in the other thread is Naomi and Carmella.  It has to be a SDL team and there are already 2 heel teams you'd figure to be involved and Naomi is the top singles star on the brand without a title program.

Maybe Naomi puts in a phone call to an old friend and we get the reunion we've all been waiting for!! #BringBackTheFunkadactyls

I was thinking - is there enough of a woman's roster to make a "first round" of qualifying matches for the elimination chamber?

It just seems odd with all this talk of earning your spot in title matches that they would randomly just throw 6 (mostly) un-established teams into the chamber to decide the first champion.

Plus - I'm a sucker for a good tournament graphic and an inaugural champion deserves one!

Bayley/Sasha will have to beat the Revival to qualify

Sasha and Bayley beat Nia and Tamina (because fuck Nia and Tamina)

The Riott Squad beat Natalya and Ember Moon

Alexa and Mickie (or Alicia if not Alexa) beat no. No there isn't.

 

I wonder if they open this up to NXT too though, if the belts are going to be defended cross-brand anyway.

That would require 24 women. I counted the women listed on WWE.com when trying to figure out how close they were to being able to do a Rumble this year without doing the memory lane schtick, and I think I came up with a number in the high twenties. So they could do it, but it would mean using pretty much the entire roster.

All the likely teams for this have been running around for six or more month sans Nia/Tamina and the whatever the third SDL team is. They are established.

They will slap together some team for Smackdown.

I would guess some combination of Naomi/Carmella/Lana, though there's certainly still time to revive the Naomi/Asuka pair if Asuka loses at the Rumble.

No better way to showcase the art of tag team wrestling than a multi-team gimmick match with no tags.

It should be the Upcycling Chamber! Today we wrestle in it, tomorrow the pods act as greenhouses for organic produce.

He should advocate for a Punjabi Prison style chamber made out of bamboo.

Add Mandy Rose and Sonya Deville to the women's tag Elimination Chamber match they declared for the match last night.

Or they could just bring someone new up.

I doubt they would call up a random third woman since they are already making baffling decisions with Lacey and Nikki

But this is also the WWE so I could see the IIconics beating Kairi and Io in a three minute qualifying match

An Elimination Chamber made of bamboo and hemp vines would be awesome, let's get that out of the way.

The Sustainable Chamber. 

6 men enter, all 6 exit having eliminated their toxicity and being better off for the WWE Environment afterwards.
