The Rock(c) vs. CM Punk - The Rock
World Heavyweight Championship Elimination Chamber - Alberto Del Rio
Number One Contendership Elimination Chamber - Brock Lesnar
John Cena vs. Shane McMahon - Shane McMahon
Xavier Woods(c) vs. Antonio Cesaro - Xavier Woods
Team Hell No(c) vs. PrimeTime Players - PTP
WWE Championship - Singles Match The Rock(c) vs. CM Punk w/ Paul Heyman
As much as I would prefer Punk to win this match and resume with the title reign that I don't think should have ended in the first place, you've gotta go into Mania with The Rock as the WWE Champion still, because I think you are going for the biggest match possible at Wrestlemania, with Rock facing Brock Lesnar. I know this match will be a good one for sure, I just hope you're able to make Punk look good in defeat, because he should be inserted right back into the title picture after Mania.
World Heavyweight Championship - Elimination Chamber
Alberto Del Rio(c) vs. Big E Langston vs. Big Show vs. Dolph Ziggler vs. Randy Orton vs. Sheamus
I'm going with Orton for this one; purely because it seems you are building this Wrestlemania up to be huge, and I think having a name like Randy Orton going in as World Heavyweight Champion makes more of an impact than Del Rio going in as champion. Seeing Orton vs Ryback is a fresh idea and I think you could most definitely make it work; lots of potential character development for both of them in that feud.
Number One Contendership - Elimination Chamber Brock Lesnar vs. Brodus Clay vs. Kofi Kingston vs. The Miz vs. Rey Mysterio vs. The Shield
I must say that this is the match I am most interested in out of all of them, but it is the one I am most sure about the winner for. I think you might have backed yourself into a corner here because it is obvious Lesnar will win it because I can't buy any of the other guys going to face THE ROCK at Wrestlemania, or even Punk for that matter. The only other possible winner is Mysterio here, but he is still a long shot. I'm very impressed with what you've done with Brodus Clay as well; managing to turn him from dancing dinosaur retard to a legit monster threat in just a few shows. Still not too sold on Reigns and Rollins representing The Shield when Ambrose is far superior to both, and seeing him rub shoulders with these guys instead of especially Reigns would be a lot better. This is the match I'm expecting you to deliver with.
Grudge Match - Singles Match John Cena vs. Shane McMahon w/ Kurt Angle
I'll give you credit for being able to turn this around into a decent feud in the timeframe you have been working with. Although I still find it a bit random and could just be used as an excuse to get Angle back in WWE, you've built it as a proper feud and it seems we are getting Angle vs Cena at Wrestlemania which makes the card that much better. I'm going against the grain and saying Cena to win this one because I know that the obvious choice would be for McMahon to win it with help from Angle... but I think that Cena needs to go into this huge match with as much momentum as possible, and losing to a non-wrestler that hasn't actually wrestled properly ever in his life isn't the way to make him look strong. Also, I think that Cena vs Angle needs to just be legit one on one, no bullshit. I just think it should be about who is better, nothing else. Cena taking Shane out of the feud until after Wrestlemania would be good, as Angle is more than capable to stand on his own two feet.
United States Championship - Singles Match Xavier Woods(c) vs. Antonio Cesaro
Still not happy about Cesaro losing the title... but I'm going for Woods here, because if you've given him the ball and ended the best US Title reign in years you better let him run with it. No point in Cesaro winning it back here, as he now has his chance to rise up the ranks.
WWE Tag Team Championships - Normal Tag Match
Team Hell No(c) vs. PrimeTime Players
I think this is another match you could use to distance yourself from in real life, by actually giving PTP the run with the gold they deserve. Kane vs Bryan at Mania seems to be on the cards as well.
WWE Championship - Singles Match The Rock (c) vs. CM Punk w/ Paul Heyman ~ I feel like you could do something different from the WWE having Punk win, but the biggest match you can probably do is The Rock/Brock in terms of mainstream news so I'm going with Rocky.
World Heavyweight Championship - Elimination Chamber Alberto Del Rio (c) vs. Big E Langston vs. Big Show vs. Dolph Ziggler vs. Randy Orton vs. Sheamus ~ I may be in the minority, but I'm liking face Del Rio so let him run with the belt. Si.
Number One Contendership - Elimination Chamber Brock Lesnar vs. Brodus Clay vs. Kofi Kingston vs. The Miz vs. Rey Mysterio vs. The Shield ~ No way a huge star like Brock loses to these guys.
Grudge Match - Singles Match John Cena vs. Shane McMahon w/ Kurt Angle ~ Gut feeling.
United States Championship - Singles Match
Xavier Woods(c) vs. Antonio Cesaro ~ I can hope.
WWE Tag Team Championships - Normal Tag Match
Team Hell No(c) vs. PrimeTime Players ~ Millions of Dollas~!
An opening salvo is played showing short clips of various superstars walking into the Elimination Chamber, some being locked inside one of the Chambers, before switching over to showing the sheer brutality and pain that the match can cause. Everything from being thrown face-first into the chain-link wall, to breaking one of the bulletproof glass cases is shown, then flipping as the various superstars who will compete in this year’s event are shown. The likes of Sheamus, Randy Orton, Rey Mysterio and others giving brief accounts on just how destructive this match can be. That’s when the camera switched over showing The Shield and how dominant they’ve been over recent months, commentator plugs coming in, wondering if anyone can stop this trio. From there, a small recap of the Royal Rumble is shown as The Rock returned to capture the WWE Championship, the video package highlighting the feud he and CM Punk have had up to this point, before slowly fading with one last grainy, black and white showing of the Elimination Chamber being lowered.
A huge explosion of pyrotechnics goes off all around the Elimination Chamber staging area, signaling the start of the pay per view. The camera pans around the sold-out New Orleans Arena, the crowd on its feet in anticipation for what’s in store this evening. As the cameras continue to pan around, that’s when Michael Cole came into the fray.
Michael Cole “Welcome to New Orleans, Louisiana! Welcome…to the Elimination Chamber!”
The camera switches over to the broadcast team of Michael Cole, Jerry Lawler and John Bradshaw Layfield.
Michael Cole “I’m Michael Cole and as always my broadcast team is Jerry Lawler and John Bradshaw Layfield and tonight, gentlemen, we make another marque stop on the Road to WrestleMania.”
Jerry Lawler “That’s right Michael, tonight we get not one but TWO Chamber matches!”
John Bradshaw Layfield “Bodies will be broken, careers will be shortened but every Superstar who steps foot inside that structure understands the risk and understands the rewards and glory that come with walking out victorious.”
After JBL finished his statement, that’s when the lights inside the New Orleans Arena dimmed, strobe lights flickering all around as the Elimination Chamber structure began to slowly descend from the rafters, the crowd standing on their feet and roaring with cheers.
Michael Cole “Looks like we’re ready to kick things off and there you see it coming down! As Good Ole J.R likes to put it, Satan’s Structure.”
John Bradshaw Layfield “It’s called that with good recent, Michael we’re talking about a sixteen foot high structure made of solid steel. Its walls comprised of two miles of solid steel chains, it weighs over six tons and let’s not forget the four bulletproof pods that will house four individual superstars.”
Michael Cole “A quick rundown of the rules for the Elimination Chamber; two men will start the match and the remaining superstars are enclosed in those bulletproof glass pods that JBL was referring to. Every five minutes, at random, a pod will open allowing that superstar, or in this case, superstars to enter the match. The only way to eliminate an opponent is by pin fall or submission and we do not stop until there is only one man left standing.”
’Special Op’ hit the P.A System, the crowd booing heavily as they turned to look towards the area where The Shield always came from and sure enough, there stood Roman Reigns and Seth Rollins, proceeding to walk down different aisle ways. Both men jumped the barricade and headed around, scoping out the structure very closely before meeting one another in front of the large door and, slowly, heading inside. It would more than likely be a theme with everyone involved, but both members of The Shield were somewhat hesitant, but ultimately stepped into the chamber closest to the right, the referee on the outside closing them inside and locking it.
Rip It Up
The new theme for the new man, Brodus Clay hits over the loud speakers and out came the large athlete to a chorus of boo’s from the New Orleans crowd. He stares around angrily as he heads down towards the Chamber before coming to a stop right at the stairs leading into the structure. After a couple of moments Brodus too makes his way into the Chamber and gives both Reigns and Rollins a quick stare before heading into the ring, exiting it once more and stepping into the back left pod.
Out came the always energetic and entertaining Kofi Kingston, doing his patented BOOM BOOM BOOM to a huge explosion of pyrotechnics, before leaping and having one last blast, before getting a serious look on his face as he saw what awaited him. He got a huge ovation from the crowd as he walked closer and closer towards the structure, slowly stepping inside and looking around at the three men who are already inside, giving a particularly long stare towards The Shield before walking all the way to the back right chamber, getting locked inside.
HERE COMES THE PAIN
Brock Lesnar was the last man to be placed inside one of the Chambers, the roof nearly exploding as a mixture of cheers and boo’s rang out from the crowd, The Beast walking out from the backstage area and glancing around. Lesnar then begins to bounce from one foot to the other, in place, before jacking his arms up and heading down toward the ring. He wastes no time getting inside before stopping on the steel platform and looking around at his other opponents. From there, Lesnar takes his place in the last remaining pod, his theme music fading off.
I CAME TO PLAY
There were only two superstars left who hadn’t made their entrances and out came The Miz to a loud ovation of cheers. He raised his arms into the air, posing for the sold out crowd before walking casually forward and coming to a stop just in front of the staircase. The Miz couldn’t help but glance all the way up at the sheer size of this structure he was about to walk into, biting down on his bottom lip, looking slightly unnerved by the whole thing, before slowly walking up the steps and getting inside.
’Booyaka’ was the last theme music to play, signaling the arrival of the high-flying Rey Mysterio. He came barreling out of the backstage area, posing for the crowd to a huge display of pyrotechnics, but he to quickly turned his attention towards the Elimination Chamber as he walked down the aisle way closer towards it. Once he climbed inside he entered the squared circle where The Miz also was, before looking around at the occupied pods. The side of the Chamber was closed and locked, the crowd eagerly anticipating the opening contest of the pay per view.
Opening Contest – Number One Contendership – Elimination Chamber
Brock Lesnar vs. Brodus Clay vs. Kofi Kingston vs. The Miz vs. Rey Mysterio vs. The Shield
-The bell sounded to signal the start of the contest, Rey Mysterio and The Miz both slowly circling, this structure having a way of putting everyone on edge, it would seem. Eventually the two men locked up in the center of the ring, The Miz managing to push Mysterio back into one of the turnbuckles, the referee stepping in to break them up. The Miz slowly backed away but when the referee moved out of the way he was met with several kicks to his right leg, dropping him instantly down onto one kee. Mysterio then proceeded to land another stiff kick, this time to The Miz’s chest, before finishing it off with a solid one to his temple, The Miz flopping onto the canvas and seeing Mysterio quickly dive on top for a pin attempt.-
-The Miz pushed his shoulder up, Mysterio rolling off of him and climbing back to his feet on the far side, waiting for The Miz to get back to his feet. When he obliged, Mysterio quickly charged forward, only to have Miz duck down and lift Mysterio high into the air, back body dropping him over the top rope and onto the steel walkway! The sick thud of flesh on steel echoed around the arena a loud ‘Ohhh’ from the crowd shortly following the thud as Mysterio arched his back in obvious pain. The Miz quickly followed out after Rey, dragging him to his feet, before quickly delivering a snap suplex, again slamming Mysterio spine first onto the steel. He rolled over and mounted Rey, delivering several hard punches and forearms to his head and neck region before climbing back to his feet, leaning back against the chain-link wall. As Rey rolled over and began to get up, The Miz charged and delivered a running boot straight into Mysterio’s face! He quickly pushed Mysterio underneath the bottom rope, back into the squared circle, climbing in himself and covering Rey.-
-The Miz slowly stood up to his feet, dragging Mysterio with him. He irish-whipped him against the ropes, Mysterio ducking under a clothesline attempt before spingboarding off the middle rope and leaping back towards The Miz, who leaped at the same time and delivered a huge dropkick straight into his chest!-
**FIVE…FOUR…THREE…TWO…ONE…BUZZER! SPOTLIGHT FALLS ON THE SHIELD!**
-The Shield’s pod is quickly unlocked and opened, both men storming out of it and heading straight into the squared circle where The Miz was waiting. He landed several punches to the head of Seth Rollins, but both he and Reigns had the advantage in numbers and proceeded to beat down Miz. They dragged him back to his feet, before bouncing him off the ropes and then lifting him high into the air, before planting him hard with a double spinebuster! Rollins broke off and went after Mysterio, who was using the turnbuckle to help himself up, only to be met by several boots by Rollins. He maliciously assaulted Rey in the corner, repeatedly stomping and punching the masked superstar, but the Ultimate Underdog fought back, landing several forearms that sent Rollins stumbling backward. When he charged back looking to regain the advantage, Mysterio landed a drop toe hold, sending Seth face first into the middle turnbuckle. Meanwhile, The Miz managed to also fight back against Roman Reigns and was soon joined by Mysterio as both men traded punches and forearms, sending Reigns stumbling back and forth between the two men. Finally, it was Miz who grabbed him by his hair and tossed him over the top rope, seeing him land hard on the steel on the outside. Both Miz and Mysterio turn around and are quickly sent to the canvas with a double clothesline by Seth Rollins. He drags Mysterio up to his feet before pushing him back against the ropes and leaping up, connecting with a dropkick that sends Rey over the top rope and onto the steel walkway. Rollins then gets back to his feet sending a hard forearm into The Miz, only to receive a right hand of his own. Both men trade shots back and forth, but Roman Reigns returns into the ring, Rollins dropping out of the way as Reigns charges forward and delivers a striking spear that folds Miz in half! Reigns and Rollins both stand on their feet, Reigns yelling out as Seth drags Miz to his feet, before lifting him into the waiting arms of Reigns, who sends him crashing down with an Aided Powerbomb! Reigns slowly drops on top of The Miz, making the cover.-
First Elimination – The Miz by Roman Reigns
-Both men are standing in the center of the ring, glancing around as the crowd boo’s loudly at The Miz being the first man eliminated. But their reaction soon changes as Rey Mysterio is shown standing on the outside, quickly springboarding in and delivering a double dropkick to the back of both men, sending them falling forward onto the middle rope. He climbs to his feet, quickly bouncing off the ropes and connecting with the 6-1-9 to both men!-
**FIVE…FOUR…THREE…TWO…ONE…BUZZER! SPOTLIGHT FALLS ON BRODUS CLAY!**
-As the pod is opened, Clay steps out of it, being perfectly positioned as Mysterio just connected with the 6-1-9 and now lays on the side where Clay just entered. Rey turns around and begins delivering forearms to Brodus, looking to exact some revenge from Raw. However, Clay is having none of it as he drives a heavy knee deep into Rey’s midsection, nearly knocking him off his feet. From there, Clay lands several massive forearms to Mysterio’s spine, before spinning him around and pushing him up against the pod he just exited. After landing a couple stiff elbows to Mysterio’s head, Brodus backs up quickly, the crowd standing on their feet as they see what he’s going for and Clay quickly sprints forward and leaps Splashing Mysterio through the bulletproof glass pod! Brodus stumbles away, falling back against the chain-link wall, Mysterio lying in a heap inside the pod, pieces of glass all around him as he does not move, several replays being shown on the TitanTron. Brodus leaves Mysterio there and heads into the ring where he is met by both members of The Shield, using their numbers once again to try and gain the advantage. But Clay is just looking too dominant as he lands a massive headbutt to Reigns, before picking Rollins up for scoop slam, landing both men side by side. Clay then bounces off the ropes and leaps, landing another huge splash, this time on The Shield, covering both men!-
BOTH KICK OUT!
-Mysterio is still out cold inside one of the pods as Brodus does the smart thing and dumps one of The Shield members on the outside, this time it being Rollins and going to work on Reigns. He backs him into the corner, drilling boxing-like body blows into the ribcage of Reigns, only to have Roman land a headbutt of his own to back Clay up. As he does, Rollins makes his presence known, springboarding in and landing a huge knee to the head of Brodus, which knocks him to the ground. That’s where The Shield then proceed to wear down the larger man, doing anything they can to keep him down.-
**FIVE…FOUR…THREE…TWO…ONE…BUZZER! SPOTLIGHT LANDS ON KOFI KINGSTON!**
-Kofi comes sprinting out of his pod, climbing to the top rope and landing a huge splash on both members of The Shield, to the delight of the crowd. Kofi bounces up to his feet, jogging around the ring, firing himself up before delivering a dropkick to Brodus Clay as soon as he climbs back to his feet. Kingston then dragged Rollins to his feet, dumping him through the middle rope and onto the steel walkway, quickly following out after him. From there, Kofi showed an aggressive side, sending the member of The Shield face and spine first into the chain-link wall several times. Back inside the ring, Brodus Clay and Roman Reigns are trading huge right hands, each one seemingly backing the other up further, that’s when Kofi re-enters the ring leaping up and delivering Trouble In Paradise on Brodus Clay! Clay goes stumbling backwards, Reigns sprinting forward and delivering a thunderous Striking Spear! Reigns covers Brodus, hooking the leg.-
Second Elimination – Brodus Clay by Roman Reigns
-The crowd roars in cheers, the announcers plugging how impressive Reigns has looked, eliminating first The Miz and now Brodus Clay. He stands up to his feet, being met by several kicks by Kingston, getting backed up. Kofi goes for an irish-whip but is reversed and as he bounces off the ring ropes, Rollins is there to drive his knee deep into Kingston’s spine, forcing him to stumble forward, Reigns bouncing off the far ropes and nearly taking Kofi’s head off with a forearm smash!-
**FIVE…FOUR…THREE…TWO…ONE…BUZZER! THE FINAL POD OPENS**
-Lesnar comes storming out of his pod, entering the squared circle where he is met by both Rollins and Reigns who begin to brawl with him in the center of the ring. They manage to back The Beast up into a corner, only to see him begin to elbow and forearm strike his way out. He takes it too both members of The Shield, before throwing Rollins over the top rope, sending him crashing onto the steel walkway. Now Reigns and Lesnar were left inside the ring, each man standing tall and staring toward the other, Reigns letting out an almost primal yell before both men charged forward and began to brawl once more. This time it was Lesnar who gained the upper-hand backing Reigns up, before irish-whipping him across the ring. When he came back, Lesnar used his momentum to send Roman high over his shoulders and the ring ropes, back body dropping him right onto the steel walkway! Rollins and Kingston continued to fight back and forth on the opposite walkway, Rollins tripping Kofi and setting up a slingshot, as he sent Kingston flying, Kofi managed to catch himself on the chain wall, scaling it slightly before leaping off with a huge crossbody onto Rollins to a loud ovation from the crowd. Seth rolled over, clutching at his chest, rolling back into the ring where Brock Lesnar was waiting. He just stared down toward Rollins with a cold stare, his demeanor quickly changing as he yanked Rollins to his feet and up onto his shoulders. From there, Lesnar spun him off violently connecting with the F-5! He covered Rollins, hooking the leg.
Third Elimination – Seth Rollins by Brock Lesnar
-Now Roman Reigns was the only member of The Shield left, the numbers no longer in The Shield’s favor. Finally, Mysterio emerged from the broken pod, still feeling the effects, but nonetheless willing to fight on. He climbed to the top rope and managed to land a missile dropkick to the back of Brock, sending him flying through the ropes and onto the walkway. Once Rey got back up, Reigns and Kofi had made their way back into the ring, both Kingston and Mysterio double teaming the last surviving member of The Shield. Reigns did his best to fend them off, but he got a taste of his own medicine as Kingston booted him in the gut, before sending Reigns onto the middle rope with a drop toe hold. That’s where Mysterio took over, bouncing off the far ropes and returning to land the 6-1-9 on Reigns! Roman stumbled back and turned right into the Trouble In Paradise! Kofi fell on top of Reigns, hooking the leg as the crowd counted along.-
Fourth Elimination – Roman Reigns by Kofi Kingston
-Another huge ovation comes from the New Orleans crowd as Roman Reigns was eliminated, leaving this match down to three men. Kofi and Mysterio both stood inside the ring, glancing toward one another and stepping over towards one another. They both then turned their attention to the WrestleMania logo hanging in the rafters, knowing that that’s what they’re all fighting for. But, before the two men did anything else, Brock had made his way back inside the ring and charged forward; both Mysterio and Kofi ducked and then landed several kicks to the legs and midsection of Brock. However it was Lesnar who drove his knee into both men’s midsection, stopping them in their tracks. He grabbed Kofi by his dreads, spinning him around and throwing him shoulder first into the ringpost, Kingston’s head smacking slightly against the pod as well. Brock then turned his attention to Mysterio, manhandling Rey for the better part of a minute, driving him down with several scoop slams and when Rey tried to battle back, Lesnar stopped it immediately with a devastating Spinebuster! Lesnar slowly made the cover on Mysterio, hooking the leg.-
-Mysterio manages to get his shoulder up, Brock dragging him back up to his feet and tossing him into a nearby corner. Mysterio takes several huge body shots by Lesnar, before fighting back with kicks and forearms and dragging Lesnar into the corner, Rey spinning around. It was Rey’s turn to blast away at Lesnar, before being drilled in the gut, sending him down on all fours, but that’s when Kofi sprinted forward, using Mysterio as a springboard to land a huge heel kick in the corner! Brock goes stumbling out of the corner, Kingston climbing to the top rope and leaping off, only to be caught by Lesnar! He was then lifted up into the fireman’s carry position, Lesnar setting up for the F-5, only to have Mysterio charge in and Brock duck down, lifting Mysterio up on top of Kingston! The sheer strength of Lesnar was incredible as he delivered a Double F-5! Brock then covered BOTH men, the referee dropping down for the count.-
Fifth AND Sixth Elimination – Kofi Kingston & Rey Mysterio by Brock Lesnar
-‘Here Comes The Pain’ hits over the P.A System, Lesnar standing up to his feet, victorious and having his arm raised. He stares down angrily at the fallen bodies of both Mysterio and Kingston, replays being shown of all the action that took place, multiple replays being shown of Mysterio being thrown through one of the pods, Kofi scaling the Chamber wall and the Double F-5 that ended the contest.- Winner & Number One Contender – Brock Lesnar
-Match Time 17:44-
Backstage, the tag team champions, Kane and Daniel Bryan, stood glaring toward one another. Several seconds past, Bryan looking down toward the ground, seemingly fuming before snapping his head back up to stare toward Kane.
Daniel Bryan “Look, I know you and I haven’t seen eye to eye lately…”
Kane “It’s kinda hard for you and I to see anything eye…to eye, isn’t it Daniel?”
Kane flashes a slight smirk, Bryan again turning away in anger, before shaking his head, trying to get this team back on track.
Daniel Bryan “Now is not the time for us to be fighting. We have to go out there and defend our tag team titles. Okay? Now listen, I need you out there. I need you to be the Big Red Machine, otherwise, we might lose these titles and I know you don’t want that! So let’s stop bickering and let’s go out there and do what we do best, are you with me?!”
Kane “…yeah, yeah I’m with you. But let’s be clear on something, I’m not the one we have to worry about screwing this up.”
The tag team champions separate, Kane walking away from Bryan, leaving him there to stew over Kane’s final words. Daniel then looks in the direction that Kane walked off in, before shaking his head and turning back to face the direction of the camera, his eyes shifting around as the cameras faded.
Match Two – WWE Tag Team Championship – Normal Tag
-Bryan continues to take the fight to Titus, dragging him up to his feet, only to be shoved backward into Kane, knocking him off the apron. Kane stands on the outside looking down at the ground, Bryan looking down at him as Kane slowly turns back to stare towards Bryan, questioning what he’s doing. Daniel tries to explain, before finally giving up on it and turning around and being picked up by O’Neil and nailed with a fall-away slam! Kane slowly climbs back onto the apron, Titus O’Neil wearing Daniel down with a headlock. Bryan slowly got back to his feet, elbowing O’Neil in the midsection and bouncing off the ropes landing a flying knee to O’Neil’s head. As Daniel got to his feet he backed up getting harshly slapped in his back by Kane, who tagged himself in. When Kane entered, both men once again began to argue with one another, Kane wanting Bryan out of the ring, but before it happens Kane turns and blasts Darren Young, who was tagged in and charged forward, with a right hand, sending him to the canvas. Finally, Bryan exited the squared circle and stood on the apron while Kane dragged Darren back to his feet and irish-whipped him off the ropes, before lifting him up and sending him crashing right back down with a sidewalk slam. He quickly went for the pin attempt, hooking the leg.-
-Back on his feet, this time it was Kane’s turn to feet a hard slap on his back from Daniel Bryan, who tagged himself in. Bryan entered the ring, immediately yelling at Kane to get out of the ring, Kane still questioning what Daniel’s problem is. The two men continued to bicker and argue, eventually leading to Bryan shoving Kane into the corner and screaming at him to leave the ring. Daniel then turned around to go to work on Darren Young, Kane snapping back and yanking Bryan around, slapping his hand across his throat! The crowd booed loudly as Kane lifted Bryan high into the air, sending him down with a huge Chokeslam! The Big Red Machine slowly exited the squared circle, heading back toward the entrance way, leaving his partner behind. Both Titus O’Neil and Darren Young were now inside the ring, Titus lifting Bryan into a backbreaker hold while Young climbs to the middle rope before leaping off and delivering the Ghetto Blaster! Young then rolled over and pinned Bryan.-
-Darren Young stood up to his feet, the two members of the PrimeTime Players jumping up and down celebrating their tag team title victory. They began to dance back and forth for the sold out crowd, who showed their appreciation by jeering and booing the newly crowned champions.- Winners & NEW Tag Team Champions – PrimeTime Players
-Match Time 9:57-
Backstage Kane is shown staring at one of the flat screen monitors set up, showing a replay of the end of his tag team title match. He then starts pacing back and forth, running his hands through his hair, growing more and more frustrated by the second. Kane suddenly turns around and slams his arms down on a nearby production crate and whipping everything off of it in anger, before storming off as the cameras cut back to the ringside area.
Michael Cole “You just saw, Kane…absolutely going ballistic in the backstage area, but, I guess, more importantly we have new tag team champions and we might have lost a tag team in the process.”
John Bradshaw Layfield “Yeah Michael I can’t see any way back for these two, but it’s not like they were much of a ‘team’ from the beginning anyway. This was a powder keg waiting to explode, and tonight, it exploded.”
Jerry Lawler “It certainly did and because of it…we have new tag team champions!”
Michael Cole “As we’ve mentioned before, ladies and gentlemen, this is the final pay per view stop on the Road to WrestleMania and it certainly has been great thus far.”
Jerry Lawler “That it has Cole and there’s still much more to come including another Elimination Chamber match! I can’t wait!”
Michael Cole “Well King you’re gonna have to wait a little bit longer for that, but up next we have the rematch for the United States Championship between Xavier Woods and Antonio Cesaro. But first, here’s where the Road to WrestleMania ends, the WWE is coming home.”
Match Three – United States Championship – Singles Match
-Woods goes to work on Cesaro from here, hooking in a headlock to keep him on the canvas before eventually releasing it and dragging Antonio to his feet. Cesaro quickly retook control, raking the eyes of Woods and then lifting him up for a Sideslam Spinebuster! The power of Cesaro was on display throughout as he then lifted Woods off the canvas by his midsection, delivering a Delayed Gutwrench slam, slowly dropping down to make the pin attempt.-
-Xavier Woods rolled over into the corner trying to buy himself some time, but Cesaro quickly went after him, dragging him to his feet and delivering multiple Swiss Uppercuts to Woods, the turnbuckle the only reason he didn’t collapse to the canvas. Cesaro backed up away from Woods, before measuring him and charging, but as he went for the running big boot, Xavier rolled out of the way, Cesaro getting hung up on the top rope! He stumbled off turning straight into the waiting arms of Woods who military pressed him up, before dropping him down onto his waiting knees for the Military Press Gutbuster! Instead of going for the cover, Woods stood up and headed to the apron, scaling the top rope and when Antonio got back up, Woods leaped off and was caught in mid-air by the former champion. Cesaro walked around for a couple of seconds, allowing everyone to admire his strength before ramming Xavier spine first into the turnbuckle, then pushing him up HIGH into the air and connecting with the VEU! The crowd lets out a loud ‘Ohhhh’ as Woods is nearly decapitated by the uppercut as he’s falling down, Cesaro looking around and once again taking a glance over towards the ring announcer’s pit, seemingly at the US Title. He slowly shakes his head, before letting a slight smirk appear on his face; he turns back around to face Woods stepping over only to have Xavier once again fight back, this time delivering a drop toe hold which sends Cesaro into the middle rope. He gets back to his feet clutching at his next and stumbling into the middle of the ring, Woods standing on the apron before landing a huge Springboard Bulldog! The champion quickly went for the cover.-
-As Xavier climbed to his feet, that’s when Cesaro quickly rolled out of the ring and proceeded to head away from the ringside area, both Xavier Woods and the referee looking on a bit bewildered as to what was going on. The referee began his standard ten count, Cesaro still clutching at his head as he stopped right at the entrance way and turned back to look toward the booing audience and Xavier Woods, before throwing his arms up and heading into the backstage area. Xavier stood there, a bit disgruntled as the referee reached the ten count and called for the bell, this obviously not being the way he wanted to retain his United States Title.- Winner by Count Out & STILL US Champion – Xavier Woods
-Match Time 14:08-
Backstage we see Josh Matthews standing in front of the camera with a microphone.
Josh Matthews “Ladies and gentlemen my guest at this time is the self-proclaimed ‘Fortunate Son’, Ted DiBiase.”
The camera panned out to show DiBiase standing next to Matthews, his head tilting up with an arrogant and smug smirk on his face, hearing himself called the Fortunate Son. The crowds response, however, was an arena full of boo’s, not wanting to hear or even see DiBiase it would seem.
Ted DiBiase “Thank you Josh for that…great introduction. Now you may be wondering why I have asked for this time and it’s quite simple, I knew this pay per view would be a better event with my presence. I know that the reason these people despise me is because…they envy me. That’s right Josh, they wish they had my life and who can blame them? I mean…”
DiBiase stops himself as another chorus of boo’s ring out from the New Orleans crowd, forcing him to bite his lip and look down toward the floor and wait for them to finish. As they do, he simply grins and lightly chuckles before continuing on.
Ted DiBiase “As I was saying, I am a part of wrestling royalty. My father is the Million Dollar Man, a Hall of Famer and I am the next installment of the DiBiase Legacy. These people better get use to seeing this face and hearing my voice, because I plan on doing things that people have only dreamed of doing.”
Josh Matthews “…and what kind of things are you talking about?”
The question brings forth yet another grin from DiBiase who just simply mouths ‘In Due Time’ towards Matthews, before slowly walking away, leaving Josh Matthews and the rest of the WWE Universe wondering what exactly he means. From there the cameras switch over showing Daniel Bryan still clutching at his back and the beck of his head, obviously still feeling the effects from Kane’s chokeslam earlier in the evening. He suddenly stops, looking over as his tag team partner steps into the picture, both men looking angrily towards one another.
Daniel Bryan “What…the hell…was that, Kane?!”
Kane “That was me sick and tired of taking your crap, Daniel. Let’s just call it as it stands, I don’t like you, you don’t like me and let’s go our separate ways.”
Daniel Bryan “Go our separate ways? No, it doesn’t work like that, Kane. Not after what you did out there.”
Kane “Daniel, I am trying to save you…from a world of pain and misery. But, if you want to continue down this path and you feel the need to try and get some ‘revenge’, then I see no problem inflicting more pain on you. You had your chance to walk away, Daniel, remember that.”
Kane leaves Bryan standing there, still seething at everything that has transpired tonight, the cameras cutting over.
-Punk quickly mounted The Rock, driving his forearm into his head multiple times before standing back up to his feet and staring out into the sea of people, yelling out ‘Best In The World’ and turning back to face The Rock. The current WWE Champion was pulled to his feet and pushed into a nearby corner, only to be lifted up onto the top rope, Punk quickly climbing up with him and then hooking his head before landing a Superplex off the top rope. He didn’t go for a pin attempt, instead Punk quickly rolled over and locked in a rear headlock, only to release it for brief moments to send hard elbows down onto the shoulder and midsection of The People’s Champion. Finally the WWE Champion went on the offensive, ducking an attempt running clothesline by Punk and when he bounced off the ropes and came back, Rock lifted and dropped him with a Samoan Drop. The Rock managed to buy himself some time, now taking the fight to CM Punk with multiple right hands, followed by an atomic drop, a flying lariat and ending with a pin attempt.
-Both men climbed back to their feet, The Rock quickly dumping Punk to the outside floor and following after him, before slamming him face first into the announce table. Punk stumbled away from the announcers table, rolling back into the ring as The Rock slowly strolled towards the apron. While the referee checked on Punk, Paul Heyman finally stuck his nose into the match, delivering a forearm to the back of The Rock, causing nothing more than a mere flinch from The WWE Champion as he snapped around to glare towards Heyman. Paul quickly backed away, raising his hands up and apologizing, The Rock keeping his eyes on Heyman as he climbed onto the apron, CM Punk suddenly charging and landing a dropkick that sent Rock off the apron, twisting and slamming chest and face first into the announce table! Punk managed to get Rock back inside the ring as he scaled the top turnbuckle before driving the point of his elbow straight into the heart of The Rock with the Diving Elbow Drop! Punk once again pounced on top of The Rock, hooking the leg.-
-A roar of cheers from the New Orleans crowd as The Rock got his shoulder up, Punk sitting on his knees, running his hands across his shaved head, showing a bit of frustration. Once he pulled Rock back up to his feet The Rock broke free and delivered several right hands to Punk who answered with forearm smashes, before ultimately hooking Rock up and setting up for a…Rock Bottom?! However, The Rock countered, immediately lifting Punk up into the fireman’s carry, before having Punk slide off and shove The Rock straight into the WWE official, who collapsed all the way to the outside floor. The Rock stumbled around into the waiting arms of CM Punk who lifted him up into the fireman’s carry, but this time saw Rock slip off, quickly hooking Punk and landing a thunderous Rock Bottom! He slowly crawled on top of Punk, hooking the leg, but had no referee to count, the crowd counting out loud for him.-
-The Champion slowly realized there was no referee, so he sat up and looked around noticing the referee lying on the protection mats on the outside. The Rock rolled out of the ring and began to try and wake the referee up as Paul Heyman headed over to the time keeper’s table, grabbing the WWE Championship and sliding it into the ring where CM Punk grabbed a hold of it. Meanwhile, The Rock had since picked the referee up and rolled him back inside the squared circle, crawling back in himself and when he picked CM Punk up, Punk swung violently, cracking the WWE Title belt off the skull of the Champion! Punk got rid of the evidence, slowly dropping on top of Rock, the referee slowly crawling over to begin the count, the commentators clamoring for this injustice as the crowd was booing heavily.-
THRE-ROCK GETS A SHOULDER UP!
-Punk sits up in absolute shock, rolling over and pounding the canvas in total anger and frustration before getting up to his feet and grabbing the referee, before proceeding to toss him over the top rope and out to the outside floor again. He glares angrily down at the fallen referee, running his hands across his head once more as he turns his attention back towards the WWE Champion. Punk signals that it’s time for him to go to sleep and as The Rock stumbles up to a vertical base he is picked up into the fireman’s carry once again, but this time the challenger connects with the Go To Sleep! He covers the People’s Champion, Paul Heyman frantically waving toward the backstage area for an official, but to everyone’s surprise…-
-Out came Dean Ambrose dressed in the referee pinstripes. The crowd stood and watched in horror as Ambrose sprinted toward the squared circle, Heyman cheering and yelling at the sight as both he and CM Punk had huge grins on their faces. Ambrose slid underneath the bottom rope, quickly crawling into position to make the count.-
THRE-ROCK AGAIN KICKS OUT!
-Everyone from Paul Heyman to Dean Ambrose to CM Punk to every single person inside the New Orleans Arena were stunned that The Rock managed to kick out, Punk sitting up on his knees almost, seemingly, on the verge of tears that he didn’t put the champion away. However, it was still a clear advantage for the challenger with Ambrose as the apparent official, but that seemed like it was about to change…-
-The roof nearly exploded at the sound of those three words, Ryback quickly sprinting from the backstage area, Dean Ambrose, CM Punk and Paul Heyman all snapping around to look in shock. Ryback hit the ring, instantly clotheslining CM Punk to the ground before going toe to toe with Ambrose in the center of the ring. The two men traded punches back and forth, but it was Ryback who got control, eventually clotheslining Ambrose over the top rope. Before Ryback went after Ambrose further, he turned his attention to Paul Heyman landing a quick, but violent short-armed clothesline to Punk’s manager, before battling with Ambrose all the way into the back, leaving The Rock and CM Punk in the ring. The two men climbed back up to their feet at about the same time, trading right hands back and forth to separate cheers from the crowd, but it was the People’s Champion who ducked under an attempt by CM Punk before delivering a second Rock Bottom! He covered Punk, the referee having slowly rolled back into the ring, crawling over to make the count.-
-Everyone was on their feet cheering and clapping as The Rock managed to retain the WWE Championship, despite CM Punk throwing everything he had at him. He stumbled up to his feet once more, barely able to stand and was handed the WWE Title, which he gladly took, having his arm raised in victory.- Winner & STILL WWE Champion – The Rock
-Match Time 21:41-
The cameras went to the backstage area showing John Cena walking down the hallway, an intense, serious expression etched on his face. He swung his arms around, back and forth, in all directions, loosening himself up for his one on one match with Shane McMahon coming up, but was quickly stopped as the Chairman of the Board stepped into the picture.
Mr. McMahon “Ahh John, I’m glad I caught you before you went out for your match tonight…”
John Cena “Listen, Vince, I already know what you’re going to say. I understand that Shane is your son and all, but he took the opportunity to challenge for the WWE Championship away from me and I am not going to take it easy on him tonight.”
Mr. McMahon “Ohhh, I see, you think I stopped you right here to tell you to…take it easy on my son tonight. Quite frankly John, that’s not the case. In fact, considering all the chaos he has caused, I honestly don’t care what you do to him tonight. He got himself into this mess. He’s a big boy he will have to take whatever consequence comes his way. Now, I stooped you because I have some good news for you. I’ve decided to grant you a one on one match with Kurt Angle at WrestleMania.”
Cena simply nodded his head toward Mr. McMahon before continuing down the hallway, the camera staying on Vince who stared in John’s direction, before shrugging his shoulders and walking off in the opposite direction. From there, the pay per view switched over to a video package before getting on with the next contest.
—Video Package Highlighting John Cena, Shane McMahon and Kurt Angle—
Match Five – Grudge Match – Singles Match
John Cena vs. Shane McMahon w/ Kurt Angle
-Shane McMahon seemed to be in way over his head as he stepped inside the ring with John Cena and as the bell sounded, Shane spent the first part of the contest running away from Cena. Anytime John got close to him, Shane would duck underneath the ring ropes, forcing the official push John Cena back and from there, it would continue. Cena finally grew tired of Shane’s antics and this time, when he ducked under the ropes he did not back up, he began to throw multiple ribcage shots to Shane in the corner, before finally moving back when the referee got to four of the mandatory five count. John backs further up, the referee checking on Shane, who grabs the official allowing Angle to get involved, grabbing and tripping Cena, before slamming his leg off the ring apron. Angle walked around the ring non-saliently, Shane taking advantage and beginning to stomp down on the same leg. When Shane dragged Cena back up to his feet, John broke free landing several right hands before bouncing off the ropes and delivering a huge shoulder block, followed by a second and a third, before finishing off with a back suplex. When John Cena went for his patented Five Knuckle Shuffle again Kurt Angle got involve, tripping Cena up again and causing him to stumble. John snapped and looked at him almost on the verge of heading to the outside after him, but that wouldn’t be necessary as the referee stepped in…-
THE REFEREE BARRED ANGLE FROM RINGSIDE!
-A loud ovation came from the New Orleans crowd, Angle slamming his arms on the ring apron in fury, not believing that the official would do that. After several moments of arguing the decision by the official, Angle finally, slowly, made his way away from ringside and into the backstage area leaving John Cena, literally, one on one with Shane McMahon. Shane caught a glimpse of Kurt just before he went into the back, the realization sinking in that he was indeed all alone. As he turned around John Cena wasted no time lifting him up onto his shoulders and delivering an Attitude Adjustment! Cena turned around but didn’t go for a pin attempt, instead he pulled Shane McMahon back up and back onto his shoulders, landing a Second Attitude Adjustment! John Cena looked around at the sold out crowd, each one on their feet in cheers, kind of liking this new side to Cena, who rolled Shane over, before locking in the STF, Shane immediately tapping out!- Winner by Submission – John Cena
-Match Time 6:10-
The bell sounded, Cena keeping the STF locked in for several more seconds before finally releasing the hold. He then quickly exited the ring, dragging Shane McMahon with him and proceeded to dismantle the Spanish announce table before lifting Shane McMahon up onto his shoulders. He stared angrily forward as Kurt Angle came barreling out from the back, but it was too late, Cena landing a third Attitude Adjustment Through The Announce Table! Shane laid motionless in the broken heap, Cena backing up a bit as Angle hit the ringside area, going instantly to see if Shane was alright, staring angrily toward Cena, both men looking like they were on the verge of brawling. John then slowly gave a small grin, backing away and leaving Kurt Angle to tend to Shane McMahon as the cameras cut to another video package.
Michael Cole “Ladies and gentlemen it is now time for our main event. Six superstars will enter Satan’s Structure, but only one man can walk World Heavyweight Champion.”
While the commentary team discussed the upcoming main event, the lights inside the New Orleans Arena dimmed once again, eerie music beginning to play as the Elimination Chamber began to descend from the rafters for the final time tonight. After Rey Mysterio had been sent through one of the pods, it had appeared to be fixed as it came back down, the Main Event just moments away.
John Bradshaw Layfield “…and even he might not walk out Michael, this match, while you only have a one in six chance of winning, you are one hundred percent guaranteed pain and misery.”
Michael Cole “[color=red]These six men will give everything they’ve got…for the shot to headline WrestleMania Twenty Nine.”
Justin Roberts “Ladies and gentlemen, the following contest is the Elimination Chamber match, for the World Heavyweight Championship! Now, here is Alberto Del Rio’s personal ring announcer…Ricardo Rodriguez!”
The cameras cut to stage where Ricardo was standing, microphone in hand as he glanced around with a smug smirk on his face, the crowd cheering loudly. He raised the microphone up to his lips to introduce the champion.
Ricardo Rodriguez “Señoras y señores, tengo el honor de presentarles al hombre que se va a sobrevivir a la eliminación Cámara y siguen siendo el campeón mundial de pesos pesados. Albertoooooooo Deeel Rrrrrioooooo!
Thousands of people introduced the name along with Ricardo as ’Realeza’ soon erupted after they were finished, the World Champion walking out, clapping his hands together to the delight of the crowd. He pointed around to the sold out arena before sharing a brief embrace with Ricardo as he returned to the backstage area, Del Rio heading toward the Chamber. He scaled the staircase and stepped into the structure, looking directly toward Langston who started yelling at him, which only brought a grin to his face as he handed his title over to the referee before entering one of the pods.
I CAN’T KEEP STILL
The theme music for Big E Langston hit the P.A System, the muscular newcomer stepping forward from behind the entrance curtain, this being the first time that the WWE Universe got to see him without him being at Dolph Ziggler’s side. He slowly made his way down the aisle way, stopping a couple of times to stare towards some heckling fans before eventually getting to the entrance of the Chamber and heading up the steps onto the steel walkway. He looked around at the large structure before making his way, cautiously, into one of the chamber pods, seeing it shut and locked behind him.
WELL…WELL IT’S THE BIG SHOW!
The largest athlete in the world stepped from behind the curtain, glaring around at the audience. He makes his way toward the Chamber, not even stopping to look at the sheer size of the structure, just simply walking inside. He does, however, stop once inside to look toward the World Champion, slowly stepping over to Del Rio’s pod and staring down at the champion. Show mouths a few words that the camera doesn’t catch before backing up and heading to one of the two remaining unoccupied pods, his theme music fading.
IT’S A SHAME FOR THEY, LOST THEIR HEAD!
The Celtic Warrior was the last superstar who would be placed inside one of the pods, Sheamus jogging from behind the backstage area, raising his arms out to his side and yelling out to a loud roar of the crowd. He slapped a few of the outstretched hands of the fans as he walked by before doing like most of the other superstars have, stopping at the foot of the steps and looking around at the solid steel structure. Sheamus jogged up the steps quickly heading to the last chamber pod and stepping inside, having it shut and locked behind him.
I’M HERE TO SHOW THE WORLD! I’M HERE TO SHOW THE WORLD!
One of the first superstars to start off outside of the pods walks out, Money In The Bank briefcase in hand, but with no AJ Lee and, obviously, having Big E Langston already inside the Chamber, leaving him to fend for himself. He looked around, still showing signs of frustration that he was forced to start off the Chamber match, so Ziggler just simply walks down the aisle way and heads halfway up the steps before stopping and arguing with one of the nearby officials. The referee orders him into the Chamber, Dolph finally stepping inside, looking all around a bit tentative as his music fades.
I HEAR VOICES IN MY HEAD!
Randy Orton was the final participant to enter this contest, slowly walking out to a loud ovation of cheers. The Viper continued his walk toward the squared circle, casually heading up the steps and onto the walkway. The Chamber door was closed behind him, the six superstars now being locked inside, the only way out, either by elimination or surviving until the end. Orton’s head turned around to look at the door, before returning to stare coldly at Dolph Ziggler, the two men now standing inside the squared circle, the bell sounding to start the Main Event!
Main Event – World Heavyweight Championship – Elimination Chamber
-Dolph stood up to his feet, the cockiness and arrogance coming out of him now as he disrespectfully slapped Orton’s head as he tried to climb back to his feet. The camera caught glimpses of Randy beginning to grow more and more angry by each additional slap.-
**FIVE…FOUR…THREE…TWO…ONE…BUZZER! SPOTLIGHT LANDS ON SHEAMUS!**
-While the referee unlocked Sheamus’ chamber pod, Orton had made it back to his feet, seething in anger as Dolph merely smiled arrogantly, before smacking Randy straight across his face. This was met by Orton grabbing Dolph by his legs and dropping him to the canvas, before dropping down himself and sending Ziggler flying straight into the ring ropes. He clutched at the ropes as Sheamus stepped out of his pod, grinning himself before charging and delivering the Brogue Kick! Dolph stumbled, almost drunkenly, away from the ropes turning around towards a waiting Orton, who some redemption, delivering his own punt kick in between Dolph’s legs, followed by an RKO! Randy quickly rolled him over, the referee and the crowd counting…-
First Elimination – Dolph Ziggler by Randy Orton
-The roof near exploded with laughter and cheers at the elimination of Dolph, Langston looking stunned while standing inside his own pod. Orton grinned before rolling over and crawling back away from Dolph as he slowly rolled toward the exit. Sheamus then entered the ring, laughing at the sight of Ziggler’s elimination, his back turned toward The Viper. As he turned, Randy quickly sprung forward, leaping up for a RK-NO Sheamus Pushed Him Off! Orton landed on his feet, snapping around to face Sheamus, who had stumbled back into the ring ropes, seeing just how close he came to facing the same fate as Ziggler. Both men now stood on their feet, tying up in the center of the ring, each man digging their boots into the canvas to try and push the other one back, which was eventually accomplished by Sheamus. The Irishman delivered several huge shoulder blocks into Randy’s midsection, before standing up right and driving his right hand straight into Orton’s forehead, before irish whipping him across and having him slam into the turnbuckle. Sheamus then charged forward, splashing Randy against the corner, forcing him to collapse onto the bottom turnbuckle pad, Sheamus turning around and yelling out for a quick pop from the crowd. The Celtic Warrior dragged Orton back up, before hopping onto the middle turnbuckle and diving off with a Diving Shoulder Block! He quickly went for the cover, hooking the far leg.-
-Sheamus sat up on his knees before once again pulling Randy up to a vertical base, this time irish whipping him against the ropes. Orton managed to duck the clothesline attempt by Sheamus, bounced off the opposite side and both men had the same idea as they leapt and connected with a cross body to one another, each man falling to the canvas and lying there. Sheamus, being the fresher of the two, began to slowly get back to his feet as the timer counted down.-
FIVE…FOUR…THREE…TWO…ONE…BUZZER! SPOTLIGHT LANDS ON BIG E LANGSTON!
-His chamber pod opened and he came out with a vengeance, climbing into the ring and landing a huge knee lift to Sheamus, buckling him back to the ring mat, before pulling Randy up and grabbing him in a bearhug. Langston holds him there for a brief moment, before lifting him up and snapping him back down with a Belly to Belly Suplex! Orton arches his back in obvious pain, Big E going back and forth from Sheamus and Orton for several minutes, an angry streak, as he clearly has a score to settle. Each man felt the wrath and power of Langston, who also took several boots and punches from the two men and when Orton and Sheamus fought back and went for a double suplex, it was Langston who countered and showed off his incredible strength by landing a suplex to both men! Sheamus slowly rolled out of the ring, Langston shaking his head before heading over to one of the turnbuckles and removing the padding, exposing the steel. From there he headed out after Sheamus, only to lift him up and drive him face first into the chain-link wall. The crowd groaned and booed at this sight, but Langston wasn’t finished, he proceeded to scrape and grade Sheamus’ head and face against the chain link wall, causing him to get a small cut where blood began to seep out. As The Viper began to stumble back up to a rocky vertical base, Langston pulled Sheamus up before letting out an almost primal yell and driving Sheamus and himself straight through a glass pod with a Running Spinebuster! Replays were shown on the TitanTron of the incredible move, the commentators plugging all the destruction Langston has caused and his overall power. Big E crawled out of the chamber, clearly shaken up and when he tried to get back in the ring, Orton was waiting for him as yanked him through the middle rope by his head, leaving him hanging there before connecting with the Rope-Hung DDT! He rolled Langston over for the pin attempt.-
-Langston pushes Orton off with his brute force, sending Randy into the air slightly, Orton quickly standing back up before delivering the multiple stomps to multiple positions of Langston’s physique, better known as the Garvin Stomp. This time it’s Langston who is on the receiving end of the punishment and as he rolls over onto all fours, Randy tilts his head a bit, before looking around, getting a sudden idea. He backs up into the far corner, the crowd standing on their feet, knowing what’s about to come. The commentators note that this move was banned by the WWE last year and as Orton began to charge, he slowly stopped, apparently having second thoughts on the idea. He then dropped to the canvas, pounding the mat, getting ready for an RKO and as Langston got to his feet, Randy leapt up and RK-LANGSTON COUNTERS AND TOSSES ORTON SPINE FIRST ONTO THE STEEL WALKWAY! It was the second time the RKO had been blocked in this Elimination Chamber match, this time, however, Orton paid the price for it as he was shown rolling around on the steel, his back arched as the timer began to tick down yet again.-
**FIVE…FOUR…THREE…TWO…ONE…BUZZER! SPOTLIGHT LANDS ON ALBERTO DEL RIO!**
-It was now the World Champion’s turn to enter the mix and as he did, Sheamus crawled out of the broken chamber. Del Rio quickly climbed to the top rope and jumped off, getting caught in the arms of Langston, who carried him around like he weighed next to nothing. However, Alberto managed to battle out of it, before leaping up and landing a Shining Wizard! Big E fell to the mat, Del Rio quickly grabbing his arm before locking in the Cross Armbreaker! Langston reached frantically for the bottom rope, which still would not help him, Del Rio continuing to yank and pull at the arm, putting tremendous torque on his shoulder and arm, Langston soon having no choice…HE TAPPED OUT!
Second Elimination – Big E Langston by Alberto Del Rio
-The referee helped Big E Langston to the exit as Del Rio stood back to his feet and walked over towards Sheamus, who was using the ring ropes to pull himself up on the outside walkway. The champion grabbed Sheamus by the head before quickly suplexing him back inside the squared circle. Randy had returned as well, landing a couple of European Uppercuts to Del Rio when he got back up, which Del Rio responded with a couple of kicks to Randy’s midsection, before landing several right forearms. Orton then managed to duck underneath Alberto’s attempts and hook his head, before snapping him downward with a Inverted Headlock Backbreaker! A huge leaping kneedrop was to follow once Randy got back up, sending the point of his knee straight into the forehead of Del Rio. Both Sheamus and Orton made it back to their feet roughly at the same time, Randy still carrying his momentum as he ducked an attempted clothesline by Sheamus, before connecting with the Olympic Slam, crawling over for the cover.-
-Randy sat up, slightly frustrated, but nonetheless he kept on going landing a series of stomps to Sheamus as well. He then returned his attention back to Del Rio who had gotten back up to his feet, but was quickly sent back down with Randy delivered a picture-perfect dropkick to the World Champion. The Viper was on a roll, but when he was dragging Sheamus up, it was the Celtic Warrior who regained the offense, suddenly lifting Randy up and hooking him into place, before dropping him down with White Noise! Sheamus quickly went for the cover as the timer also was about to start.-
FIVE…FOUR…THREE…TWO…ONE…BUZZER! LAST POD IS OPENED!
-The final pod was opened, the largest athlete in the world, and subsequently the freshest superstar in this contest, stepping out of it and entering the ring. The first to meet a huge swinging right hand to their ribcage was Sheamus, who quickly buckled, Big Show quickly heading after Del Rio, the cause of his frustration over recent weeks. Del Rio was dragged into the corner before slapped hard across his chest several times by the giant, who then lifted Alberto up when he stumbled out of the corner and connected with a powerful sidewalk slam. It was the Big Show who now had all the momentum, but he continued to attack Del Rio, moving him close to the ropes, using them for aide as he stepped on top of the champion, bringing all of his weight down on him! The Big Show turned around only to see Sheamus and Orton both charging, double clotheslining the large athlete over the top rope and onto the steel walkway! They both stumbled in opposite directions, it clearly taking a lot out of them to send the large superstar over the top rope. But, they ultimately squared off once more, trading rights and lefts, neither man gaining a real edge until finally Sheamus began to send The Viper backwards. Orton, not wanting to be out done, quickly leapt into the air, going for another RKO, only to see Sheamus block and push him toward the ropes. Randy used the ropes to halt his momentum, turning back and ducking the attempted Brogue Kick by Sheamus, which led him to be hung out to dry on the top rope. Orton stumbled away, the Big Show having gotten back to his feet and he stepped forward landing a Knockout Punch! Sheamus collapsed onto the ring mat, Randy seizing the opportunity to fall on top of him.-
Third Elimination – Sheamus by Randy Orton
-As Randy got back to his feet, the Big Show was there to meet him, gripping his hand around Orton’s throat, before yanking him HIGH into the air and planting him down to the canvas with a thunderous Chokeslam! Before he could make the pin attempt, Del Rio grabbed the arm of the Big Show and spun around and down near the ring ropes, somehow managing to slide his body partially under the ropes and synch in the Cross Armbreaker! While Big Show was at the ropes, there were no ropes breaks inside this Elimination Chamber, Del Rio then re-intertwining his legs not only arm the Big Show’s arm, but around the bottom rope as well, leaving the giant trapped in the hold! The Big Show fought and struggled to break free, but in the end he couldn’t and was FORCED TO SUBMIT!
Fourth Elimination – The Big Show by Alberto Del Rio
-Alberto quickly released the grip on Big Show, sliding back inside the ring and scrambling to his feet. As he charged toward Randy, The Viper struck, delivering a quick striker RKO! Randy fell to the side of Del Rio, slowly crawling on top of him and hooking the leg.-
THR-DEL RIO GETS A SHOULDER UP!
-A loud pop came from the New Orleans crowd, enjoying the fight these two men were showing, but Orton sat up after Alberto kicked out, looking around shocked and somewhat upset that he did not get the three count right then. He slowly rolled back over, pounding the canvas, which started to make Del Rio climb back to his feet and when he did, Orton jumped up only to have Alberto pushed Orton forward, unknowingly, straight into the exposed steel turnbuckle that Langston had exposed earlier! Orton stumbled out of the corner, nearly out of it, Del Rio seeing an opening and landing the Step Up Enziguri! He fell on top of The Viper, hooking the leg.-
Fifth Elimination – Randy Orton by Alberto Del Rio
-Del Rio had done it! He had overcome all the odds, survived five other challengers to retain the World Heavyweight Title. He rolled over onto his knees, celebrating with his arms raised high in the air as the Elimination Chamber slowly began to raise up from the ground back to the rafters.- Winner & STILL World Heavyweight Champion – Alberto Del Rio -Match Time 26:21-
Alberto was handed his title, but it seemed the Big Show was not happy with the result as he suddenly re-entered the squared circle and dragged Del Rio to his feet. The Champion tried to fight him off, but Big Show ultimately grabbed him by the throat and delivered a devastating Chokeslam! Big Show turned to leave, but stopped just when he got to the ropes, slowly shaking his head before yelling out to the crowd ‘I’m Not Done’. He dragged the almost lifeless Alberto Del Rio back to his feet, before balling up his fist and delivering a Knockout Punch! Finally, the world’s largest athlete left the ringside area, but the night wasn’t over as suddenly everyone’s worst fears were about to be realized…
I’M HERE TO SHOW THE WORLD…I’M HERE TO SHOW THE WORLD!
Out from the backstage area raced Dolph Ziggler, AJ Lee and Big E Langston to a loud chorus of booing from the New Orleans Arena. While Big E and AJ stayed on the outside, Ziggler slid underneath the bottom rope, popped to his feet and handed the Money In The Bank briefcase to the official, who had no choice but to start a match!
-‘Show The World’ re-hit the P.A System, Dolph leaping to his feet in celebration. The New Orleans Arena rained down with boo’s as the referee retrieved the World Heavyweight Title and slowly handed it over to Dolph, who snatched it into his possession.- Winner & NEW World Heavyweight Champion – Dolph Ziggler -Match Time 1:45-
The Elimination Chamber pay per view slowly faded off the air with Dolph Ziggler celebrating his Money in the Bank cash in and subsequent Championship win alongside AJ Lee and Big E Langston, who lifted Ziggler up onto his shoulders. Confetti rained down from the rafters, the crowd certainly not in a celebratory mood as the cameras faded to the WWE logo and then off the air.
—End of Show—
enjoy guys, please don’t be too rough with the critiques haha and I hope you all enjoy!

Look for potential returns on Monday Night Raw this week.
Daniel Bryan vs. Kane
Shelton Benjamin vs. Antonio Cesaro
PrimeTime Players vs. Rey Mysterio & Sin Cara
- Brock Lesnar wins the #1 Contender's Elimination Chamber retaining his #1 Contendership, and the thing about it is, is that it was Brock's first Chamber match, his debut Chamber match and now the Beast Brock Lesnar is going to WrestleMania 29 in the main event where he will end up facing the WWE Champion but whether that's Punk or Rock remains to be seen but nevertheless I cannot wait
- Millions of Dollars, Millions of Dollars, Millions of Dollars, Millions of Dollars, Millions, Millions, Billions, the Primetime Players becoming the new WWE Tag Team Champions beating Team Hell No in a great match, this is great because now Team Hell No are no longer a tag team and Kane can go his separate way and Daniel Bryan can go his separate way but I was hoping Kane was going to turn into a monster heel becoming the Kane of old
- Xavier Woods is still the WWE United States Champion beating Antonio Cesaro all be it by count-out but something tells me that Woods and Cesaro are far from over but this WrestleMania is going to be Xavier's first WrestleMania on a big stage such as the granddaddy of them all, you can bet he will steal the show but then there's Cesaro too this also being his first WrestleMania and I for one want to see these 2 go at it at WrestleMania 29
- The Rock retains his WWE Championship against CM Punk and now the main event for WrestleMania 29 is set, it is going to be Rock vs Brock II at WrestleMania 29 for the WWE Championship but the first time Rock and Brock collided was 11 years ago at SummerSlam 2002 when Brock won that match and now 11 years later they clash again but this time at WrestleMania in the main event and I for one can't wait because it will be a great match
- But where does that leave CM Punk for WrestleMania 29?
- John Cena brutalizes Shane but now that he has done that, you know Kurt Angle is going to want to go after Cena, which sets up Angle/Cena for WrestleMania 29 and I for one cannot wait because this will be Kurt Angle's first WrestleMania in over 7 years because the last time he was at a WrestleMania was WrestleMania 22 when he faced Orton and Mysterio, so for him to face Cena at WrestleMania 29 in his first match back, you know as much as I do, that Kurt needs to go over Cena with their rubber match being at Extreme Rules
- Del Rio wins the Chamber retaining his World Heavyweight Championship only for Ziggler to cash in his briefcase right after the Smackdown Chamber to become the new World Heavyweight Champion, you know Del Rio he is going to want to invoke his rematch clause and if he does, I can see him doing that at WrestleMania 29, but then wouldn't Ryback get involved considering he won the Royal Rumble Match
