How come nobody was impressive?

Last night these six guys (Khali, Kane, Bryan, Orton, Sheamus and Swagger) were supposed to try to impress Booker T to earn a spot in the Chamber (#1 contender match). But from a kayfabe perspective nobody really impressed. If we break it down we see that:

Kane and Bryan lost, Swagger and Orton won by opponent failure, Sheamus won by DQ and Khali beat Mahal (who sucks). So I was thinking that this must be planned to make some sort of angle, (not a big one, just an excuse to make some new qualifying matches), otherwise it's just really stupid.

And how come Big Show didn't get a chance? or is it somehow a given that he will get a second rematch at EC? And how come the worry about finding a number one contnder for WM before thet have one for EC?

I know you'r not supposed to think about wrestling logically, but still.

Big Show will probably get another chance to win the title at Elimination Chamber PPV, so that's the reason he is not in the Chamber match.

Orton, Khali and Swagger seem to be lock on. God, I hope WWE pulls a Survivor Series 2012 on us and changes it up immediately. Put Christian and Mark Henry in that match, get Khali out of there.

Re: How come nobody was impressive?

There really was not a standout from Smackdown. Yea Swagger came back but it was pretty lackluster, like the show. I know Vince loves the really big guys like Kahli but he does nothing for me. He stiff walking motion reminds me of way back in the WCW when Scott Hall would taunt the Big Show with a zombie like motion. Kahli just looks like a big lumbering goon that can't really do much else than a overhand chop. I think it is time for him to go.

Because the booking on Smackdown is completely fucking shit, embarrassing and unacceptable.

Re: How come nobody was impressive?

Because they're all boring. We have a guy like Khali who can barely walk anymore, but yet he'll likely be in chamber match, probably lasting even shorter time then he did in last year's Chamber match. Kane and Bryan should defend the Tag Titles at the PPV, and not compete in the Chamber match, but because they're so desperate to fill spots because their roster is terrible (evident by bringing back Swagger for the match) I could see them being in the match. Sheamus and Orton are the only ones who should be in the match so far, at least they're credible. It would be great if they had a returning Christian and Mark Henry in the match, but they won't be because Khali and Swagger are so much more interesting...

Re: How come nobody was impressive?

IMO it should be Christian vs Henry vs Sheamus vs Orton vs Kane vs Bryan. Period

anything else is an epic fail
