Keeping it short and simple this time. Having to do this after the fact since I had family commitment this weekend where I wasn’t going to be able to watch the show live. So tonight we have WWE Elimination Chamber 2020 and it looks like it’s going to be an ok night? I kind of feel going into this I’m only going to enjoy a few of the matches but I’m willing to give it a go and see.
The WWE Elimination Chamber 2020 card:
Gulak vs Bryan
Gulak is wildly under-rated and I’m happy to see him wrestling higher level competition.
Winner: Bryan by tapout
Rating: *** match.
United States Championship Match
Andrade (c) vs Humberto Carrillo
These guys are both great in the ring.
Winner: Andrade with a handful of tights.
Rating: *** match.
Men’s Smackdown Tag Team Elimination Chamber Championship
The Miz and John Morrison (c) vs. The New Day vs. The Usos vs. Heavy Machinery vs. Lucha House Party vs. Dolph Ziggler and Robert Roode
A lot of solid tag team wrestling. Great, fun, match with a ton of high spots. Otis through the chamber was an unexpected “This is Awesome” moment.
Winner: Miz and Morrison retain via pinfall
Rating: ***+ match
No DQ Match
Aleister Black vs AJ Styles – Undertaker beatdown
Decent match.. Until….. Honestly AJ vs Taker? Totally bores me conceptually.
RAW Tag Team Championship Match
Street Profits (c) vs Rollins and Murphy
Viking Raiders bounced AOP. KO came around towards the end to be a distraction.
Winner: Street Profits with the 1-2-3 on Murphy.
Intercontinential Title Match
Braun Strowman (c) vs. Shinsuke Nakamura, Cesaro and Sami Zayn
This was a below average at best match. Cesaro is such a wasted talent it kills me to watch the guy in WWE but he seems content so I’m happy for him.
Winner: Sami Zayn
Rating: *+ Let’s be real. The match was trash.
Woman’s Elimination Chamber Match (for a WM title match vs Becky Lynch)
Natalya vs. Liv Morgan vs. Shayna Baszlervs. Asuka vs. Ruby Riott vs. Sarah Logan
Jesus this match was a pile of garbage. You devalued the woman’s roster to build a former MMA talent, as if that background was not enough? Not sure I get the logic here.
Winner: Shayna Baszler
Rating: Under *
This entire card was backwards. Had they shown it in reverse order it would have been building up instead of letting down. Whatever. It was clearly a throwaway show for WWE with WrestleMania anticipation abound.
