Elimination Chamber PPV should be replaced

this year's elimination chamber ppv really seems stupid considering the match the ppv is named after is determining the top contender to the #2 title in the company. i say it should be replaced with a ppv titled "the road to wrestlemania." the whole point of the ppv would be to build towards wrestlemania and eliminate the necessity of having to have a gimmick match like the elimination chamber. i personally think elimination chamber would be better for after wrestlemania to finish some feuds and start new ones.

Re: elimination chamber ppv should be replaced

I think they should just do the chamber at Survivor Series.

Do we even really need a PPV between the Rumble and WM?

I agree... Not a fan of the EC ppv.

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...

Re: Elimination Chamber PPV should be replaced

Elimination Chamber only works if there are actual Elimination Chamber matches, it looks like there will be only 1 and its not even for a title so I think the PPV's name is really unneeded. There should be at least 2 or 3 matches using the Chamber, if there is only going to be one match than the PPV should be called something else.

Re: Elimination Chamber PPV should be replaced

Agree that the Chamber should become a staple of Survivor Series. It just fits the overall theme of the event so perfectly.

And I don't understand why we need another Del Rio/Show match. Can't they just be two of the guys in the chamber if they want to continue the feud?

Time to scrap all gimmick PPVs bar Royal Rumble and Survivor Series.

Re: Elimination Chamber PPV should be replaced

the idea of elimination chamber settling feuds is a good one. sometimes less is more, and i think this is one of those cases

Re: Elimination Chamber PPV should be replaced

The Survivor Series format has been dying for a while, they may as well just get rid of the EC PPV and hold at least 1 chamber match at SS, there's no problem with having another chamber match at a different point in the year either.

Re: Elimination Chamber PPV should be replaced

ive said it before, switch elimination back a month to jan and the rumble to feb. The road to wrestlemania is far too long as the matchups become predictable after the rumble and ec becomes a filler ppv.
