WWE Elimination Chamber 2014 Results and Review: Daniel Bryan’s Dreams Are Shattered

EC 1

Even on Black History Month, nobody gives Mark Henry his respect.

Introduction

We are so close to WrestleMania. You can almost taste it. 2014 has been the year so far of building up ideas. The WWE Network comes tomorrow. WrestleMania XXX is in April. Everything is being set up to look forward which is why tonight was all about making sure that the future for individual wrestlers was bright.

Inside the Elimination Chamber, only one man of six would leave the victor. The other five would have to find some other way to get to WrestleMania. Meanwhile, Batista would get warmed against Alberto Del Rio, an opponent who could very well cripple Batista before he ever got onto the Road to WrestleMania. These were to be the two men to main event WrestleMania.

Elsewhere though, wrestlers were just trying to solidify their positioning for a WrestleMania spot. The Shield and Wyatt Family were battling for supremacy and looking for group solidarity knowing that 2014 could only truly be the year of the winner. Championships were on the line, and young men were tested.

The Road to WrestleMania was to be built upon the back of WWE Elimination Chamber for better or for worse.

    Look at Josh Matthews… can’t even look Mark Henry in the eyes…

    Big E vs. Swagger was great, as expected. Actually better than I had expected despite going in knowing that it’d standout on this PPV.

    Shield vs. Wyatts definitely WWE MOTY thus far. It was all that, well, everyone hoped for I guess (chaos, destruction, all that fun stuff) and the finish was cool. Even in a 3 on 1 fight, Reigns took it to the Wyatts. It’d be funny if Dean Ambrose is never seen or heard from ever again after that match, just so the #DeanAmbroseDoesntExist can make a triumphant return… I wonder how WWE will play off his absence in the later part of the match though.

    Fans booing Batista…. he didn’t look too bad in this match, but people hate him. And ADR finally generated some reaction from fans… just not in the way WWE had hoped.

    The Elimination Chamber was pretty good too. Lots of carnage in that like the 6 man tag earlier & OF COURSE TWO THINGS HAD TO HAPPEN: 1.) some fuckery involving the Wyatts screwing Cena over AND 2.) Kane screwing Bryan over.

    Orton vs. Batista is guaranteed for WrestleMania, whether or not D-Bryan joins in & makes it a triple threat is to be seen but I doubt it’ll happen. He’ll probably face Kane on some episode of RAW then somehow get into a match against Triple H at WrestleMania – At least that’s what I’m hoping for. Bryan finally getting revenge on the guy that’s been screwing him over since August.

    Bad News Barrett appearing after almost every match was weird/funny too. The big take-away/must see stuff from EC is without a doubt Shield-Wyatts, the Chamber, & Big E vs. Swagger. The rest was just simply there…

      You had more faith in it coming in than I did, and it certainly delivered.

      WWE couldn’t put me through another Dean Ambrose doesn’t exist movement. I wouldn’t stand for it.

      It is nice to hear Del Rio creating reactions, but it might just be the Batista effect.

      So many people inside that Chamber this time around.

      It looks like you’ll be getting what you want for Mania. It will be cool to see him get that revenge he has been build toward.

      Bad News Barrett was hilarious. Thanks for reading, Charlie.

    I’m not all that surprised Orton retained. Hogan will help Bryan get in the title picture. Maybe he has to go thru Kane or HHH to get there but he will face Batista/Orton at Mania. Batista turns heel and Evolution is reformed. I can only imagine the fireworks that a Shield triple threat will have at Mania. I just think it’s going to be the best match of the night.

    I’m so excited for Mania and tonight’s Raw. Your review was a masterpiece, as usual.

    • Kevin Berge

      It would be interesting to see a full Evolution reunion with the title in the balance at Mania. That triple threat will be phenomenal. Most of the roster will have trouble topping it.

      Thank you, Awesome.

    So happy that someone else thinks Seth Rollins was the standout of the Shield. Some of the stuff he did tonight blew my mind. Luke Harper was also fantastic, I just wish he would bring back his catchphrase, “yea! Yea! YEA!”.

    • Kevin Berge

      Yeah, Rollins was great. He keeps impressing with his crazy athleticism and willingness to put his body on the line. He’s like a new age Jeff Hardy. Luke Harper’s abandoned that “Yeah, yeah, yeah” for actually talking. I kind of miss it as well.
