I read that the US and World Heavyweight Championships won't be defended in the Elimination Chamber but just normal matches.

 

Yeah, I think you're right:

 

The anticipated, must-see WWE Elimination Chamber event will emanate from Corpus Christi, Texas, where the WWE Tag Team Championships and the newly vacant Intercontinental Championship will be defended inside the infamous structure. Plus, U.S. Champion John Cena will compete and the WWE World Heavyweight Title will be defended, all live on WWE Network.

Do you think the finish of the Neville/Cena match on Raw was to line Neville up to face Cena for the belt on this PPV? Nicely done if so, with only two weeks between PPVs. I wonder if we'll get the Kane/Seth title match here too? Being as you only have a short build but they've been building that for months and you have the chamber as a big attraction in the undercard. I can't see them doing Seth/Orton or Seth/Reigns on this PPV.

I'm more interested to see if we will finally have a 6-Man Tag Elimination Chamber Match. They've been having them in WWE video games for years but the match has never actually happened. The above quote does say that the WWE Tag Team Titles will be defended in the Chamber.

I really hope the whole PPV will be great, but I just worry that the tag match could get a bit scrappy (depending how they do the eliminations), but it does have a lot of high flyers which could be fun. But that could be the problem with the intercontinental match, there seems to be more of a big guy focus for that match, not sure how well it will work. Obviously I hope they pull it off though.

An interesting premonition from Kevin Steen (he hadn't changed his name yet) in an interview on WWE.COM about coming to NXT.

 

"I was coming. And they were coming, too. My son’s 7 years old. He watches WWE and he loves John Cena. I’d take him to a WWE show in Montreal and he’d be like, “How come you’re not wrestling?” “Uh, I don’t wrestle for WWE. You get to come see me in front of 200 people.” (Laughter.) Then one day I told him, “Hey, I think I can wrestle for WWE. You want me to?” He’s like, “Yeah!” So I said, “OK, but it means moving, changing schools and not seeing Grandpa every day.” His question was, “Are you going to wrestle John Cena?” (Laughter.)"

Rusev is a doubt for the pay per view after injuring his ankle in his smackdown match with ryback

 

Interesting. He was my pick to win the Intercontinental Title this Sunday. It's also interesting because didn't Ryback also injure his ankle a couple of years ago?

 

Neville vs. Bo Dallas has been added to the card and the return of Miz TV with Daniel Bryan as the guest will be on the Kickoff show. I don't know why Neville vs. Bo Dallas is on the main card and not on the pre-show is beyond me or why WWE decided to put these two in a feud in the first place, but it's there.

They have history as Neville was the guy who took the NXT from Dallas (and led to the debut of Mr. NXT), so Bo has a grudge against Neville for sending his career downwards from that point.

 

Add in that their interactions have been good and it's worthy of a spot on the main card of what is essentially a glorified In Your House event.

With the safe assumption that Rusev will not be able to compete in the Elimination Chamber Match for the Intercontinental Title, that brings up the question of - who will replace Rusev? A few names immediately come to mind with the first being The Miz. Miz is already booked to host Miz TV on the pre-show, so putting him in the Chamber Match seems plausible. Another option would be Kane, but I think the most intriguing possibility would be putting Roman Reigns in the Chamber. Roman has been heavily involved in the Rollins/Ambrose feud over the last couple of weeks but he's not currently booked to compete on the show and, if we're talking an equal replacement to Rusev, I think Reigns is more than suitable for the spot.

That means he has to win it though? I don't think he's right but the talk is Bray and I don't think he's right either. I think I'd make Bo vs. Neville a qualifying match and have Neville replace him and Sheamus win.

 

I thought Rusev was winning for sure but according to Meltzer the plan was Sheamus. That surprises me. What was the plan Ziggler pins Rusev? He's just another guy then. There's a big difference between losing to Cena at Wrestlemania and Dolph rolling you up on a B show in-between sleeping with your girlfriend. This injury could be a blessing for him. If he can sit out 6 months and then come back with a bang he could be much better off then he would have been trading wins with Ziggler in the mid-card.

 

Oh and the Sportsbook is up... but only for another 20 minutes. Sorry for the late posting. God bless you @Kam for breaking the duck.
