The sad road to Wrestlemania

Rating: 3 votes, 3.33 average.
We all know that the main event of the Chamber is Rock Punk and that Rock is going over to retain the title. Even though I was against the Rock winning in the first place, WWE is going to remain predictable. For those that said Punk didn't draw, his PPV buyrates were good and TLC, the one he was not one and headlined by Cena did quite poorly. Thus, Punk was legit as champ and his reign will one day be legitimized, after all, most great accomplishments receive there accolades long after they are due. It is sad since this match has no real drama as Rock Cena is headlining WM (which I will post about later once the WM card gets finalized). Punk cannot regain the title since Vince wants his main event which will fail like the first matchup in terms of quality of match. Punk is in waiting for his opponent for WM even though it is Taker which most assume it is, then he will job for Taker to keep that streak alive. Punk has been great on the mic and keeping the feud with the Rock relevant while Rock is doing his promotional work for his movies. Right now Punk is the best thing going in the WWE and hopefully will regain the title later in 2013 or headline next year's WM since he has not won the Rumble or main evented WM. I would prefer him to be the Rock Cena matchup since he can carry the match as neither Rock and Cena can carry a match and the crowd will be hot for Punk this year. I will speak on this at a later time.


Cena, Sheamus and Ryback vs the Shield is another nothing matchup as there is no build up for WM. Cena is on course for the Rock, Sheamus will not be feuding with Ryback at WM so there is nothing to gain for this matchup. It is another holding matchup since Sheamus is rumored to go against Orton while Ryback has been linked to Show or Jericho. Thus, the Shield should prevail to continue their push. The Shield should go on to win the titles at WM as that allows for Team Hell No to dissolve and give them more credibility. I would have Rollins and Reign as the champs and allow Ambrose to grab the IC title. They are a legit faction and all have the ability to become main eventers.

The World Title match is just doing the same thing over and over with Show and Del Rio. This feud lacks the entertainment value when you have the same match over and over again. Del Rio vs Ziggler was fantastic on Smackdown and could be a legit match at WM; however, how many times is WWE going to show the same thing. Recall Sheamus Ziggler for a while, now Orton vs Barrett.

It is a shame that both Cesaro and Barrett are title holders who can beat everyone but WWE's favourites ie Orton, Ryback. Cesaro has quietly gone along and made the US title relevant as it used to change hands every three weeks. Cesaro should be getting more of a push and it demeans him when he has to job to Ryback. He should beat Ryback by cheating or get DQ, thereby making him look strong as opposed to a jobber for Ryback. Barrett loses to Orton every other week now on Raw or Smackdown which defeats his purpose as being a champion. I understand the feud with Bo Dallas to bring him up to the roster kinda like Razor did with the 123 Kid. Hopefully Barrett does not drop the title to him. Both of these should defend and retain successfully at the Chamber and build a feud into WM. The problem is that the WWE does a half-hearted atttempt at making mid card feuds meaningful and do patch work for both of them as champions.

The only Elimination Chamber matchup is for Smackdown World Title opponent and most of the people cannot win. Bryan cannot win as he is in Team Hell No and Kane will probably cost him in the matchup. Swagger just came back and to see him get a main event spot at WM does not make sense, same with Henry. Orton could win and become heel and face ADR but Ziggler is winning the title, probably at WM with his MITB. This match does not have as much suspense as it could since the competitors have storylines already made up for them or no real build up for them in the match.

Hopefully there are some surprises in this PPV but highly seems unlikely. This road to WM has not been as interesting as in years past and I know that the undercard of WM will steal the show as the main event as planned will not live up to the hype again. Once again, the WWE has relied on generic cards instead of building some new stars.

As always, You're Welcome.

    @grave, why would Swagger win? I haven't seen him prior to his loss to Ryback and leaving and now coming back, but his 'look' is almost comical. The beard and hair do nothing to make him look heel-like or a face, and the two matches I've seen with him since he has returned have lacked any charisma or memorable moments. I've seen people talk about him on forums and such but I haven't seen anything to justify the following he seems to have in some sectors, he looks like the first Amish WWE Superstar or the poor man's Kurt Angle. Orton is as equally bland but at least he has a good finisher.

    I don't know how far you go back as a fan, but he looks like Nailz, a guy who had a brief run against the Big Bossman in the 80's.

    The issue the first time was they rushed him to the top too soon. Hell, no one saw him winning MITB after his losing streak heading into Mania. I think it would be best for Swagger to win a midcard title like US to get fans behind him.

    I still think it will be Brock vs Taker at WM , takers last match. They will start to build it raw after EC, they will leave it open for Punk vs Brock too, or Punk Vs Taker to cover there backs.

    If punk loses at EC, he will start blaming Heyman for costing him his title , Heyman tells punk wouldnt of been champ so long if it wasnt for him , Punk saying he held the title for so long beacuse Hes the Best in the World, and he dosnt need Heyman he never did, and fires Heyman, they will fall out but nothing major, just Punk telling Heyman to stay out of his way this will go on for a few weeks.

    HHH or Steph maybe even VM himself returns on RAW telling Heyman they have unfinished buisness and try to fire Heyman and Brock, but Vikki signed Brock to a new contract and that contract includes Heyman, so theres nothing they can do,so Vikki will be fired instead all this building to WM, Contract for the Company Match. Heyman n Brock are fired if they lose, if theMcmahon family lose Heyman gets control of the WWE.
    Heyman will wind Vince up making him agree to the match while hes full of rage with the typical VM YOUUURRR ONNNN !!! line

    Over the following weeks leading to WM Steph , HHH will say to VM what are you doing , VM says i know you can beat him this time, HHH vs Brock 2, but HHH will be taken out weeks B4 leaving Vince to find someone else to fight Brock. Heyman will be on RAW saying looks like the company will soon be his because nobodie can beat "Brock Lesnar - Baddest Man On The Planet", Vince says Ive got a Bad Ass of My Own , the American Bad Ass Takers Music Hits, and he rolls out on his bike.

    I am glad you corrected yourself by saying Buyrates. I never mentioned DVD sales as WWE is more interested in buyrates than DVD sales. As much as you might hate it right now, Punk is the straw that stirs WWE drink. Eventually someone will replace (Bryan, Ziggler, Cesaro, Barrett) but till then he is the main guy.
