Get the feeling already this is going to be a rather flat show until the Chamber.

Can't believe I changed both my opening grapl pics and got them wrong :fp:

That match belonged on the preshow though.

The heel trying to overcome the odds of a handicap match feels so arse backwards

I think Bliss vs. Naomi should be ace. Not expecting much else besides the the Chamber to be worthwhile.

The crowd thanking Ziggler. :wub:

I assumed this was a tag match with all the teams at ringside at the same time.

This match would have made a lot more sense as a Street Fight.

Can't believe that ended in a no contest.

This PPV so far has bored me to tears.

Orton vs Harper was solid. Feels like the longest singles match we've had from Orton in ages.

Did not see that coming! She deserves it though. One of the best and most underrated in the division.

One big change to this new chamber is that they've got rid of the steel grating and replaced it with padded wood panels.

Styles is either really good at selling or genuinely injured. Ace match. Styles is just a class act.

Daniel Bryan saying he and Shane can change their plans 30 minutes before SmackDown even goes on the air...

Such a shot at WWE in reality.

What matches are worth watching? I'll watch Womens Title and Chamber anyway.

Chamber match...

Bray strawberry floating Wyatt 8-) 8-) So pleased, looking forward to the Wyatt/Orton Mania build up. Psychology should be fantastic.

Couldn't ask for a stronger title win than cleanly pinning Cena and Styles in the WWE's "most dangerous match". Suspect Orton will beat him at Mania though, which is a shame. Hoping they add Harper to the match

I know the wrestler's safety and all that, but after 19 Elimination Chambers was it really necessary to pad the strawberry floating floor? It had to be at least 4cm thick. Watching on a big TV some of it looked weak as gooseberry fool, especially when you could see people's feet pressing into it. It didn't produce any sound either. Hard to suspend disbelief at that point when it's that fake. It was bad enough with the "bullet proof glass" which I don't believe any of the commentators said this year.

The thought behind having the heel be outnumbered is confusing to me.

The sheet of plastic Corbin threw Ambrose through was beyond a joke :lol:
