I am surprised that I am actually writing this blog post because I haven’t been the best WWE fan lately. I usually watch Raw and Smackdown live on Mondays and Tuesdays but lately I have been recording them on DVR and then fast-forwarding through the “boring parts” the next day… so basically, I only watch the women’s segments and somewhat know what is going on with the ladies! 😀
Also, going to just pop this in here real quick; last year at Wrestlemania 33 Axxess I waited in line to meet Daniel Bryan inside the Elimination Chamber! Here is a quick video of the cool cage.
Anyways, it feels wrong to completely skip a predictions post so here we go!
The first ever women’s Elimination Chamber match
Alexa Bliss vs. Bayley vs. Sasha Banks vs. Sonya Deville vs. Mandy Rose vs. Mickie James
My prediction: Alexa Bliss. To be honest, I would love for Sasha to win this because I really want the belt off of Alexa. I love Alexa Bliss (truly) but I am bored of her championship reign. I don’t think she’s even defended the title since October 2017! However can you imagine if they totally shocked us all and gave the belt to Mickie James!? Talk about a completely new, fresh set of story lines that they could work with.
Asuka vs. Nia Jax
My prediction: Asuka. *sigh* because of course. But I actually want Asuka to win because the stipulation for this match is that if Nia Jax wins, Nia gets added to the champion match at Wrestlemania and let’s be honest here, I do not want another triple threat match at Wrestlemania! I just want two bad ass 1v1 matches for the women!
Ronda Rousey contract signing
My prediction: This isn’t a match but I suspect someone will come and interrupt her and set up her first fued. I just have no idea who. Either Stephanie McMahon, Asuka, Alexa Bliss or (randomly) Charlotte.
Men’s Elimination Chamber match
The Miz vs. Seth Rollins vs. Roman Reigns vs. John Cena vs. Braun Strowman vs. Elias vs. Finn Balow
My prediction: Roman Reigns. Roman wins but I want Braun Strowman to win and deep down I want Finn to win. However, I think this match will set up some feuds: Finn Balor vs. Seth Rollins or Finn Balor vs. The Miz… and maybe John Cena vs. Elias… and maybe it’ll be Roman Reigns vs. Braun Strowman until Mania time since our beloved Universal champion is nowhere to be found.
Matt Hardy vs. Bray Wyatt
My prediction: Oh I have no idea. Sigh. Let’s go with Matt Hardy.
Sheamus and Cesaro vs. Apollo Crews and Titus O’neil
My prediction: This is purely for fun, I’m giving this to Apollo Crews and Titus O’neil because I actually really like Titus Worldwide, lol.
Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson vs. The Miztourage
My prediction: Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson because why not.
