When Did the WWE Decide to Bring Back the Ellimination Chamber Show?

WWE Officials made the decision to bring back the Chamber show within the past few days. Part of the reason why the Chamber was done away with was that a lot of arenas were unable to handle the structure. Also, a lot of the WWE talent were surprised to hear the gimmick was being brought back.

  2. Is it wrong for me to hope Stardust is in the IC Chamber match?

    And that he has a special glittery, sparkly pod?

    And that he spends the entire match until his pod opens freaking out in ecstasy about how awesome his pod is?

    ReplyDelete
  3. All the LOLs at the WWE's BS reasoning for not doing the Chamber. They are running the show in an arena that was built in 1967. Gtfo with your excuses....just say the Network is losing subscribers after WrestleMania and you needed a hook.


    They've had Elimination Chamber matches in 13 different arenas...give me a break.

    So if Bryan's essentially done as an in-ring performer, what's next for him? Trainer? Commentator? Goodwill Ambassador?

    ReplyDelete
  5. A tag team Elimination Chamber could be good, but could also turn into a giant clusterfuck. I like the idea of crowning a new Intercontinental champion there, though.

    ReplyDelete
  6. It is never wrong to hope that Stardust is involved in anything.

    "Also, a lot of the WWE talent were surprised to hear the gimmick was being brought back."

    Why? Did Vince give a big speech about the Chamber being future endeavored last year or something?

    ReplyDelete
  11. WWE Officials made the decision to bring back the Chamber show within the past few days.


    So are we supposed to call this "WWE being flexible" or "WWE has no fucking clue what its doing right now?"

  12. WWE: We Just Do Things

    ReplyDelete
  13. I actually love that. If they used it, everything would kinda make sense.

    ReplyDelete
  14. "Also, a lot of the WWE talent were surprised to hear the gimmick was being brought back."

    Translation: They were pissed because literally everyone hates being in that match.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Is it me, or is Nattie gradually heading toward total nudity?

    ReplyDelete
  16. Jericho talks about that match like it shaved years off his career. I think even Hunter talked about how bad it was and how pointless the bumps are because the cage makes no noise.


    I don't know what else they do for a special event though.

    ReplyDelete
  17. The Love-Matic Grampa!May 12, 2015 at 8:14 AM

    It's amazing how committed guys like Cody and Bray are to their gimmicks and getting themselves over.

    And it's sad that WWE doesn't seem to know what do to with that.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Thanks man! Some day I'll run out of ideas, some day. lol

    ReplyDelete
  19. It's a good thing

    ReplyDelete
  20. They could have done a real KOTR tournament instead of what they actually did. The eight men, one night style one like they originally did.


    They could conceivably have done a IC Title tournament too.

    ReplyDelete
  21. I almost didn't recognize you this time.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Well come on, it's not like one of the most popular stars had to just hand back a title because he's hurt or anything.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Global Force Wrestling will have four championships? So how many with Jeff Jarrett end up with at the end of the first event?

    ReplyDelete
  24. I'm almost positive no one has used ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ as a tagline.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Even Hunter's on record that he hates that match. And he makes it a sick point of pride to not complain about match types.

    ReplyDelete
  26. The Love-Matic Grampa!May 12, 2015 at 8:15 AM

    Did HHH almost literally die in that thing?

    ReplyDelete
  27. That's actually what I was thinking, but I didn't watch any of this new version of the kotr so I can't speak to whether or not it sucked.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Yup. RVD landed on his throat and damaged his wind pipe or something like that.

    ReplyDelete
  29. I'm having a serious problem deciding if his mustache should be black lol

  31. Grand Slam winner!

    ReplyDelete
  32. In all fairness, you can't really blame the cage for that.

    ReplyDelete
  33. See? It works.

    ReplyDelete
  34. It should. I didn't even notice it.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Smarks: "There's not enough new wrestling programming on the Network! Isn't this supposed to be a pro wrestling Network?"
    WWE: "You're right. We're going to do a King of the Ring special and Elimination Chamber that are exclusive to the Network, just for you!"

    Smarks proceed to nitpick King of the Ring and Elimination Chamber because they aren't exactly what they wanted.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Well yeah you kind of can because he adjusted the way he did the move he had done 100000000 times because of it.

    ReplyDelete
  37. The Elimination Chamber sucks. So many backdrops onto the metal grating and announcers screaming about the barbarism of the match while dudes writhe around in over-sell mode.

    ReplyDelete
  43. I actually like that it's the IC Title being decided, because they'd be zero drama to the World Title in the Chamber. Rollins isn't dropping it until at least the Lesnar match.

    ReplyDelete
  44. Tagline, shit; you could make a logo out of that with the W.

  48. So I just found a 48gb torrent of more or less complete CWF (Memphis) TV from 86-89.

    ReplyDelete
  49. Yeah the roof over it really screwed Rob, he kind of had to just...tumble onto Hunter

    ReplyDelete
  50. Yeah, that's why I doubt that they're actually going to a World Title one.

    I like the idea of a tag team one because it sets up unique possibilities and it's something we haven't seen.

    I like the idea of the IC title one filling the vacant title. Hell, just use most of the same guys from the Mania 31 ladder match.

    ReplyDelete
  51. Who complained that there wasn't enough wrestling on the network? There isn't enough classic stuff on the network, but I haven't seen anyone bitch about not enough new stuff.

    ReplyDelete
  52. Except ditch R-Truth and add The Ryback.

  53. :-( Clearly I am not a true liberal elite for missing that.

    ReplyDelete
  55. I can't speak for anyone else but my concern is that the special is like...the most dangerous thing they do. And they announce it the same guy a fan favorite leaves with another injury...


    I love that it's network-exclusive, but it would be cool if it was something safer for the guys, that's all.

    ReplyDelete
  56. The King of the Ring special was not very good at all and they gave it zero build. Hopefully they learned from that and will do better with the EC

    ReplyDelete
  57. Hahaha, ok yeah Lax you're right, black stache is better

  59. Well they are building it, aren't they? They announced it 3 weeks ahead of time instead of one, so that's an improvement right there.

  60. Sheamus vs. Ziggler vs. Barrett vs. Neville vs. Ryback vs. Wyatt


    New Day vs. Kidd/Cesaro vs. Lucha Dragons vs. El Matadores vs. Wyatt Family vs. Primetime Players or Ascension

  61. It's still cool by the way, at least they're trying. The overall idea is a great one.

    ReplyDelete
  62. I'm going to assume XWT.

    ReplyDelete
  63. Idea for another Network Special: Legends Reunion, which features a bunch of Legends Matches. This way we can get the now-annual New Age Outlaws reunion off of RAW.

    ReplyDelete
  64. I can't see how anyone could complain about either of those. I'm good with it.

    ReplyDelete
  65. The Love-Matic Grampa!May 12, 2015 at 8:26 AM

    Good idea, but it might get depressing when you realize how many legends are gone now....

    ReplyDelete
  66. UWT or wrestledesires or whtever the fuck it's called now.

    ReplyDelete
  67. Watch it on 4x fast-forward and they'll even look like regular matches!

    ReplyDelete
  68. Needs more Stardust.

    ReplyDelete
  69. If they're going to have Jerry Springer associated with the Network, why not just recreate the Jerry Springer show and have wrestlers on as guests venting their grievances? You could even do the old-school Springer show fights.

    ReplyDelete
  70. Sergeant Dr. Facts YatesMay 12, 2015 at 8:29 AM

    Why hasn't George The Animal Steele ever done Raw guest commentary before?

    ReplyDelete
  71. I expect them to promote the hell out of EC. This is one of the few things they can actually use to push the 50,000 or so people who are still buying PPVs a la carte loose.


    I actually wouldn't be surprised if large segments of Payback are setups for EC at this point.

  75. I think the Bellas were genetically engineered for this.

    So why aren't Curtis Axel and Damien Sandow doing the whole Mr Perfect and The Genuis team up?

    ReplyDelete
  83. Springer has to be 100% a Vince mandated move. Nothing like a guy who's popularity peaked in 1998 (hey, that sounds familiar...)


    Vince: GODDAMMIT! We need something to promote this Network! Something edgy! And hip! And appealing to our youth audience.


    HHH: So, we could move the product in a more realistic MMA direction, you know, there's a lot of money...


    Vince: SHAADUP PAUL! We don't do that shit! People will die! No, we need something that personifies pop culture. I got it! Get me Jerry Springer, GODDAMMIT!!!


    (silence)


    HHH: Uh, sure thing Vince

  84. Worst_in_the_WorldMay 12, 2015 at 8:34 AM

    Wow, I assumed the Elimination Chamber show would just be a short broadcast with the EC match, like KOTR was. But they're putting on an entire PPV with a World title match too? Holy shit that's desperate.

    ReplyDelete
  85. Because that would make too much sense.

    I hope they realize that less people would watch the replay.
    Also, DA wants the show to bring in more viewers, they do realize they are on less cable packages right?

  94. Oh. If anything, I don't understand their business model of putting ALL their PPVs on the Network.

  98. I'd like to know what a normal DA show pulls. It can't be more than 30,000 for anything else on that channel at any given time.


    As fun as it is to needle TNA, DA should be worship at the feet of a Dixie statute at this point.

    ReplyDelete
  99. I have an entirely blocked ear and crushingly loud tinnitus in it. It's *unbearable* and the doctors can't do anything about it for a couple of days apparently. It's so bad. Like a constant swelling pressure in the head that can't be ignored. Aaaaaaargh.

    ReplyDelete
  100. Worst_in_the_WorldMay 12, 2015 at 8:40 AM

    Positive observation about the current awful WWE product: Heel Sheamus is actually excellent. He should murderize Ziggler in 2 minutes at the PPV and go over for the IC Title and hold that shit for a year or something. Honestly he might be the best heel on the roster right now.

    ReplyDelete
  101. They paid a lot of money and expected more though. It's not like TNA costs the same as they're other programming.

    ReplyDelete
  102. EVERYTHING IS FINE !

    ReplyDelete
  103. "Lookit 'em, he fell straight on 'is arse!"

    ReplyDelete
  104. So how is a tag title chamber match going to work? Is it going to be three teams, with each pod having one guy in it, or six teams, with each pod having two guys in it? And how uncomfortable would the latter be for the teams that have to wait in the pods?

    ReplyDelete
  105. Right, this was people seem to miss. Considering what DA paid for TNA, they expected a bigger return. Of course, that was foolish.

    ReplyDelete
  106. The Love-Matic Grampa!May 12, 2015 at 8:41 AM

    They were teasing a Barrett/Sheamus pairing, too.

    King Wade and Sir Sheamus? Why not?

    ReplyDelete
  107. Hunting for bigfoot can't be cheap!

    ReplyDelete
  108. True, but they can't have paid that much. If I recall correctly, they slashed & burned the budget compared to what Spike gave them.

  109. The RAW commentary team will do that to you.

    ReplyDelete
  110. "Yep Mode" Abeyance Brown ©May 12, 2015 at 8:41 AM

    Let's see, R Truth is afraid of heights, he's afraid of spiders, all he needs to do is finish out that fear list and be agoraphobic as well. You could easily have him in a pod, freaking out that it's gonna close in on him, then when he's let out of the pod, he goes crazy running around knocking everyone out without even knowing.

    ReplyDelete
  111. Worst_in_the_WorldMay 12, 2015 at 8:41 AM

    It'd be worth it for the visual of all 3 New Day guys inside the pod clapping for 20 minutes straight.

    ReplyDelete
  112. Stranger in the AlpsMay 12, 2015 at 8:41 AM

    If Los Matadores are in the Elimination Chamber, the gimmick match has run it's course.

    ReplyDelete
  113. Ziggler is worse than stale at this point. Let Sheamus kill him dead and put him out of action for a few months while they figure out what the hell to do with Dolph.

    ReplyDelete
  114. Worst_in_the_WorldMay 12, 2015 at 8:42 AM

    WHY NOT.

    Yeah, I love Sheamus' proud smile when Barrett calls him his friend.

  115. Now I wish there was an EC in the 90's so I could see the Natural Disasters crammed into a pod.

    ReplyDelete
  116. Stranger in the AlpsMay 12, 2015 at 8:42 AM

    Then you realize that R-truth is the one with that gimmick. Fail.

    ReplyDelete
  117. Someone pours spiders into his pod, and the only way for him to get out is to climb high.

  118. Haha, that's tremendous, poor Kofi's going to have to do some entertaining gymnastic spots, bonus points if he can end up upside down somehow.

  120. Ziggler is the perfect guy for a valet. He can be the cocky asshole that everyone hates with the sweet, beautiful lady every likes.

    ReplyDelete
  121. I think the TNA defenders were throwing around big numbers though when they were bragging about the deal

    ReplyDelete
  122. I think Bigfoot himself is expensive, so they'll probably never actually "find" him

    ReplyDelete
  123. I'm claustrophobic, so the idea of being in a pod with another large man and having to wait in there for god knows how long freaks me the hell out.

    ReplyDelete
  124. Well yes, we've discussed that on and on here. WrestleMania, at the very least, should not be on the Network.

    ReplyDelete
  125. Worst_in_the_WorldMay 12, 2015 at 8:43 AM

    Yeah, this should be a total stretcher job situation that lets Ziggler come back as a heel. Dude needs a complete gimmick change.

    He really could use a gimmick change on the level of Bradshaw becoming John Bradshaw Layfield--- new name, completely new backstory, everything.

    ReplyDelete
  126. Fact: No way Valentine ever gets stuck in a pod with Bruti

    ReplyDelete
  127. Worst_in_the_WorldMay 12, 2015 at 8:45 AM

    Dude, if New Day spent 20 minutes in the pod together clapping and doing ridiculous shit like trying to squeeze Big E up on their shoulders--- they'd be the most over thing on the show.

    Which isn't saying much in modern day WWE, but still.

  131. Yep. The best is when I don't respond to his numerous ID's, so he loses his shit and creates more ID's and spams the entire chat. Take a look at the top. He copy/pasted my recap three times under Bayless's name. I don't even get the point.
