Bad New Barrett appears again and mocks the Minnesota Vikings. He mentions Hulk Hogan returning as host of Wrestlemania and says his spotlight has been taken over by him. Yeah, OK.

The panel tonight is Mark Henry, The Miz, and Rey Mysterio and they discuss the events of the evening so far.

Winners- The Wyatt Family ****1/4 ( When you put two groups together that the crowd is in love and you let them do their thing, you get magic. This was a phenomenal brawl with all six guys fighting with something to prove and they all had a chance to shine. Reigns is going to be a mega star if he keeps it up, he has something special. )

Christian says he hasn’t been on a roll lately but people will forget about that when he walks out of the Elimination Chamber as champion. He’s desperate and that makes him dangerous. He dares everyone to underestimate him.

Santino Marella is playing with toys backstage and Emma, Great Khali, and Los Matadores show up to play as well. Yep.

Winner and Still WWE World Heavyweight Champion- Randy Orton ***3/4 ( There were some great moments and spots throughout the match to make this yet another excellent Chamber match. The overbooking at the end with everyone and their mother entering the Chamber, despite being impossible to enter, to interfere kept this from being up there as one of the best chambers. )



The 411: For the most part, this was a very entertaining show. You had an opening match that blew away peoples' expectations, the Wyatt/Shield match was outstanding, and the Elimination Chamber match was pretty damn good. The rest of the card felt like it belonged on TV rather than PPV, but the main matches delivered and in some cases over delivered, so we ended up with a pretty good PPV that set the stage for Wrestlemania XXX.
 
Final Score:  8.0   [ Very Good ]  legend
