- Have the elimination chamber be for the IC title
- HHH offers Barrett a spot since he's a 5 time IC champ or whatever, and he looks at him and says "um...well, you know im doing this whole king thing right now...I'm all set man, but thanks"
- Have the next 8-10 people turn down a spot for various reasons ("I have a hair appointment", "Im allergic to steel", etc.)
- The chamber can end up being 6 guys from NXT (or like 2 other guys who need a jump start) that don't know any better
The end result is you'll end up with an awesome match, and it will be funny because the whole plot before/during/after the match can be how the title is bad luck.
I think the best option for a winner would be Bo Dallas, and then he can be the modern day Honky Tonk Man who just lucks out wins. He can eventually be destroyed by the son of the Ultimate Warrior and the title can return to being prestigious.
Thoughts? Improvements? I'm writing this in the dark so I'm sorry if it doesn't make any sense.
