Soooo, it’s been a while. I was a bit busy with work and going back to school last semester and the blog unfortunately took a back seat to life. I am back, and hopefully not going anywhere anytime soon. So without further delay, Elimination Chamber Predictions! GO!
Brodus Clay and Tensai vs. Team Rhodes Scholars – Pre-Show
Who needs the win: Team Rhodes Scholars needs this one. They are the better team. Actually, they are a REAL team. To lose to those dancing fools, would not be acceptable.
Who I want to win: I think I made that clear above, but I will say it again: Team Rhodes Scholars.
Who will get the win: Team Rhodes Scholars. Not one doubt in my mind.
WWE Diva Champion Kaitlyn vs. Tamina Snuka
Who needs the win: Kaitlyn needs to prove that she deserves that Championship. This is her chance, against a fairly formidable opponent. One the other side of the coin, Tamina needs to prove that she is as good as the hype.
Who I want to win: I am a pretty big fan of both woman, but a small piece of me loves that Kaitlyn has that Championship, and would like it to stay there.
Who will get the win: I am going to go with Kaitlyn. She has worked hard to get her chance, and I don’t think she blows it this quickly.
United States Champion Antonio Cesaro vs. The Miz
Who needs the win: The Miz needs this one. He has been beaten down and broken by superstar after superstar in the past weeks. The Miz needs to step up, focus, and take what so many others have failed to take from Antonio Cesaro.
Who I want to win: The Miz, of course. My MizFit status never waivers.
Who will get the win: I am going with another sweep here. I truly believe that The Miz has what it takes to defeat Antonio Cesaro and maybe impress and change the minds of a few doubters in the process.
World Heavyweight Champion Alberto Del Rio vs The Big Show
Who needs the win: The Big Show needs to prove that he is still who he says he is. He is a big, bad, mean giant of a man. Show needs to prove that Alberto Del Rio’s wins have been nothing but flukes in order to back up his place on the top of the WWE.
Who I want to win: I am not very against either man winning. Both men bring very different, but very great things to the top of the WWE. I am a fan of both men, and mostly, I hope they give me one hell of a show.
Who will get the win: I think that Alberto Del Rio has the slight edge with Ricardo, Big Show’s temper, and the WWE Universe in his corner. The biggest question becomes, does Ziggler cash in?
Elimination Chamber Match
Participants: Randy Orton, Mark Henry, Jack Swagger, Chris Jericho, Kane, and Daniel Bryan
Who needs the win: Wow, any of these men could use and have earned a chance at the World Heavyweight Championship. Henry and Swagger have the most to prove to the WWE Universe, however.
Who I want to win: I will never, EVVVVEEEER, go against Chris Jericho in an Elimination Chamber match (except for if Punk is around). He is the best in the world at what he does, and the Elimination Chamber is what he does.
Who will get the win: Wow! This is a tough call. A really tough call. I am going way out on limb and saying that Jericho sneaks this one out, just in time for WrestleMania.
John Cena, Ryback, and Sheamus vs. The Shield
Who needs the win: John Cena, Sheamus, and Ryback need this one in order to put The Shield in their place.
Who I want to win: Child, please. I love me some young, brazen heels. Believe in The Shield!
Who will get the win: Did I not just say to believe in The Shield? I meant it.
WWE Champion The Rock vs. CM Punk
Who needs the win: Both men for very different reason needs this one. CM Punk needs to back up his claims that The Rock’s Royal Rumble victory was a fluke. The Rock needs to prove that he still belongs at the top of the WWE, and if he can not hang with the likes of CM Punk, it may be back to making movies for The Great One.
Who I want to win: CM Punk. ‘Nuff said.
Who will get the win: The odds are stacked against the Champion. With the likes of Paul Heyman at ring side, the no DQ stipulation in place, and the many, many groups of people aligned with Heyman and Punk, I am not sure even The Rock can overcome. This match ends in a swerve, but even with those odds, The Rock retains.
