Re: Elimination Chamber PPV should be replaced
I dislike the fact that they theme PPVs around these types of gimmick matches - especially Elimination Chamber & Hell In A Cell. They should be using those stipulations as ways to blow off a feud... they've devalued the importance of these matches by pidgeon-holing storylines to line up with these PPVs and very few of them have been meaningful. I don't mind Money In The Bank as its own PPV though, since that's a chance to elevate someone and FURTHER a story.
It's the reason I would really like to see the Cena/Ryback/Sheamus vs. The Shield to be in the EC as a War Games style match - it elevates the importance of the Chamber match so that it can be a type of feud blow-off match. They have a chance to do something unique here, but it looks like they've made it a standard tag...
