Arnold Furious: Before we get underway I’d like to point out how much I enjoy the concept of a shorter, Network exclusive wrestling event. The absolute worst thing about Raw is the sheer length of that show. Three hours is frankly painful to watch when the creative minds behind the company don’t have three hours worth of weekly TV in their locker. Sometimes, less is more. Hence why NXT’s one hour weekly show and two hours specials are the best TV the WWE have. That said the Elimination Chamber is a full-on three-hour event. Which means there is a lot of filler. As much as I like Adrian Neville I have no desire to watch him wrestle against Bo Dallas. The highlights on this show’s card are Seth Rollins defending his title against Dean Ambrose and John Cena facing off against Kevin Owens.
We’re in Corpus Christi, Texas. Hosts are Michael Cole, JBL and Jerry Lawler. The big shill is for the two titles being decided in the Chamber. The tag straps and the vacant IC title.
