Elimination Chamber IX - 2/17/2019

Recommended Posts

Billie Kay's match vs. Madison Eagles from SHIMMER Vol 35 is one of my all time favorites. She also had a couple really great matches with Nicole Matthews on Vols 33 & 39 but I don't think any are available online. I always hope she eventually gets a breakout chance to shine on the main roster.

Such a difference in how WWE treats Cruiserweights compared to WCW at its peak and the Jr. Heavyweights in NJPW.

Charlotte Flair's putting in work to promote Ronda/Ruby as anything other than a foregone conclusion:

How about Daniel Bryan starting with Kofi Kingston in the Elimination Chamber match and those as the final two? Rare occurrence in the Elimination Chamber.

So does this newest Uso DUI/arrest issue throw a wrench into Sunday?

P.S. Damn, do those two love getting DUIs...

Alexa Bliss' promo from last year's show was one of my favourites in 2018.

They're showing a 'Best of Elimination Chamber' on Sky Sports Mix. Undertaker vs Batista in the finish of the match in 2008. It keeps going from colour to black and white and back whenever there's a cloesup of the left side of Taker's face, even though both are bloodied up all over. OK, that Tombstone reversal over the rope was nice.And now it's 2009 and it's Edge vs Rey Mysterio one on one. I guess by 'Best of' they mean 'Best of Finishes'.

OK, they showed a fair amount of the last three with Cena, AJ and Bray Wyatt. I'd completely forgotten Bray was ever Champion. And now it's Sasha and Bayley while Alexa looks all scared. I was hoping they would show something from 2006 so I could make the 'That was going to be Bram's year' joke, but never mind.

Naomi and Carmella are on the same team. It’s going to be a bit wild. A car wrecker and a home wrecker...

Sasha Banks/Bayley. 

Ronda Rousey. 

Shane McMahon/The Miz. 

Finn Balor.

Buddy Murphy.

Braun Strowman.

So, is the crowd gonna boo Carmella?  What's the reaction going to be for the Usos?  I'm still mad we're not getting Rey and Andrade against each other.

It might not be the worst idea to run an angle and replace the team tonight, just to keep them out of the spotlight.

Wouldn't that shine the spotlight on them even further? The best form of damage control is to go on as normal. Take tonight's hit and move on.

They're not winning, especially over a McMahon. I expect the Usos are going to have to sell Shane's punches more than anyone has ever sold them.

I’m thinking the crowd will be especially ugly to Carmella and it’s probably best to just pull them from the match today.

It's not the old ECW arena. There will be a smattering of boos but not much else. There wasn't a lot of chants for JoJo.

Plus there isn't a Smackdown team that could replace them (not that they are getting taken out)

Pretty much the only real choice would be Cross/Foxy jump them and steal their spots like Edge did to Kofi.

We have occasionally seen WWE crowds get extremely disgusting towards women (most infamously the post-Mania Raw crowd that started chanting "You fuck xxxx" at the various women) but it's usually not as bad as ECW and such.

I'm more wondering if Corey will be there.

I would think it's similar to how they protected Paige from the live crowd after the video was leaked.
