Elimination Chamber 2010 DVD

EliminationChamber10Taking place on 21st February this year and hailing from the Scottrade Centre in St. Louis, Missouri, this pay per view focused it’s 2 main events around the ‘brutal’ Elimination Chamber. Only 5 matches in total which I think is slightly poor for a pay per view event, but both chamber matches were well put together and there were plenty of shockers throughout!

Kicking off with the Raw Main Event was a little strange to say the least, but I suppose it meant one Chamber match at the beginning and one at the end of the pay per view. Each superstar had to go through a qualifying match on the Feb 1st edition of Raw, resulting in the 5 winners being included in the chamber match for Sheamus’ WWE Championship. Cena entered first with Jerry lawler saying ‘the roof just came off this arena’ ignoring the fact that he was getting booed out of the building! Cena, DiBiase, Orton and Triple H start the match locked inside the chambers leaving Kofi Kingston and Sheamus st start the fight, meaning Sheamus has to eliminate the other 5 competitors to retain his title. Extremly brutal match with a bit of a twist in the tale courtesy of one Vincent Kennedy McMahon!

Drew McIntyre vs Kane for the IC championship is a great match. I will always enjoy watching the ‘home-boy’ Drew and have long been a big fan of Kane so it was a win win situation for me!

The Divas match was full of.. screaching and hair..

The Miz is interviewed backstage by Josh Matthews, I think Miz is brilliant on the mic and in the ring; always funny and entertaining! He faces MVP for his United States Championship and goes to the ring wearing more gold than Mr T! Because He’s the Miz.. and he’s AWESOME!

William Regal comes to the ring and cuts a great promo about how he’s the best man for the job of NXT Pro mentoring the new tallent. He’s interrupted by Edge.. the cheeky monkey; (Sorry, blast from the past there!) much to Regal’s distain! How rude! After calling Regal ‘Lord Snuggleworth’ Edge goes on to say since he won the Rumble he will be making a decision about which champion to face at WrestleMania on the following night’s Raw (as included in the bonus features on this disc), he then spears Lord Snugglesworth out of his patent leather shoes!

The Smackdown Chamber match for me is better than the Raw one. More entertaining, more action and.. it has Morrison, Jericho and Punk need I say more?! CM Punk comes to the ring with his Straight Edge Society and a microphone. He cuts a promo on the 4 stars already locked in the chamber, saying they’re weak and prone to addiction and when he beats them he wants them to think of it as him setting them free! R-Truth interrupts him and the two start the bout with the other 4 competitors watching on from their pods. Punk and Truth have an awesome match before anyone else even gets released into the action, and I wouldn’t mind seeing those two slug it out in a cage sometime! Rey Mysterio is next in line to get into the fight followed by Jericho, then Morrison then Undertaker.
An awesome match, I’m not the biggest fan of Elimination Chambers but this one was well worth watching, I don’t know how they figure out more origional moves and spots with each Chamber, but they do!

Decent Pay per view all round, pitty that Christian vs Ezekiel Jackson was a dark match before hand and a shame Edge didn’t get a match too but at least he was included in some capacity.

8/10
