|WWE Elimination Chamber PPV Coverage for May 31, 2015|
[WWE World Heavyweight Championship Match]: Seth Rollins (c) vs. Dean Ambrose
Poor Dean Ambrose doesn't have a chance here, but it's good to see him getting a title shot when he wasn't even planned to be in the Fatal 4-Way at Payback to begin with. I'm really hoping that a loss here could mean retribution by booking Ambrose to win the Money in the Bank, but that's obviously not anywhere near a guarantee. I can't imagine anyone being a better fit, though. As far as where Rollins goes from here, I'm assuming Kane gets a match against him at Money in the Bank while those other guys such as Ambrose, Randy Orton, Roman Reigns and whatnot are in the ladder match.
PREDICTION: Seth Rollins retains.
[WWE Intercontinental Championship Elimination Chamber Match]: Sheamus vs. Ryback vs. R-Truth vs. King Barrett vs. Rusev vs. Dolph Ziggler
Wow. This is not the group that I had expected to see. I figured it would be a combination of Dolph Ziggler, Sheamus, King Barrett, Neville and either Ryback / Bray Wyatt or R-Truth / Stardust, but here we are. That still doesn't change my opinion about who the top contender is to win the whole thing, as I think this is a match that Sheamus has in the bag. If he doesn't win, then Rusev is my top choice to follow. WWE seems to be pairing Lana with Dolph Ziggler, which could mean that there's room for a big push there, but there's also a good chance that's a red herring, so watch out.
PREDICTION: Sheamus wins the title and Ziggler starts a feud with Rusev that isn't involved with the championship. Best of both worlds, I guess?
[WWE Tag Team Championship Elimination Chamber Match]: The New Day (c) vs. Tyson Kidd and Cesaro vs. The Lucha Dragons vs. The Ascension vs. Los Matadores vs. The Prime Time Players
For those wondering, the two tag teams that are currently in the company (and not inactive like The Usos) that are sitting this match out are Luke Harper and Erick Rowan as well as The Mega Powers (Axelmania and Macho Mandow). I would have to imagine that there are only two options here as far as the winners go. Either The New Day retain or The Lucha Dragons pull off the win. I'm hoping the former happens, but they last eliminate Sin Cara and Kalisto in a means that makes them look cheap, so they can start a new feud with them afterward. If I were booking things, Los Matadores would be the jobbers and first eliminated by The Ascension, who would then also eliminate The Prime Time Players (because The Ascension need to be built up better). Kidd and Cesaro would beat The Ascension and then have a hard fought exchange with Lucha Dragons, who best them but fall to The New Day's cheating.
PREDICTION: The New Day retains.
John Cena vs. Kevin Owens
WWE previously advertised this as a title match for the United States Championship, but it seems as though they may have changed their minds, as the website is deliberately avoiding saying that. Whether or not the belt is on the line, I'm pumped for this. Owens has been awesome and a few weeks back, I was thinking that he would be the perfect choice to defeat Cena for the title. While I'm loving the US Open Challenge and wouldn't want it to end, if it leads to Owens on the main roster as the champion, I can definitely deal with that loss. If it's not for the title, Owens should win. If it is, I think I'd like to see Zayn cost Owens the match so we get the best of both worlds with Owens possibly beating Cena down the line for the title, as it shouldn't happen as Elimination Chamber, but on a legitimate pay-per-view like SummerSlam or better yet, Night of Champions.
PREDICTION: John Cena retains if the title is on the line and Owens wins if it isn't.
[WWE Divas Championship Triple Threat]: Nikki Bella (c) vs. Paige vs. Naomi
I was expecting this to happen at Money in the Bank, so I'm not sure whether or not to believe the same idea will take place. I'd like to think Nikki or Naomi win, but I could see Paige leaving with the belt more than anything. Then again, I could see Nikki retaining just to have a singles match with Paige at Money in the Bank.
PREDICTION: Nikki Bella retains.
Neville vs. Bo Dallas
Come on. Neville is winning this. There's no way Bo Dallas comes out on top unless something weird happens like interference from someone else who starts to feud with Neville, but that's not going to happen. This is a simple filler match for Neville to win as compensation for not being in the Elimination Chamber for the Intercontinental Championship.
PREDICTION: Neville wins.
