Against All Odds was pretty good. Main event should have been longer but I did like the finish. X Division title match was the show-stealer obviously but I enjoyed everything except Gunner and Bischoff. He makes fucking David Arquette look less green in the ring. Oh he's got heart! Fuck off, I don't care.



Also, Santino is great

Won a rumble at training this evening. It cost me a dead thigh and a bump on the head - piffling war wounds. :D

I'm attending a Doug Williams training seminar in a fortnight. That'll be interesting.

and when do they let him show this? just because he was great elsewhere, doesnt mean he deserves to be in the elimination chamber. he's a joke character, no matter how good he really is.

is a shame he isn't used to his maximum capacity in WWE ...


on a TNA note, looks like Roode is going to go seriously over at the next PPV - won't give any spoilers but it looks likely.

I hope Santino is made to look like a legit competitor on Sunday as opposed to taking a finisher then getting pinned!
I can see by that look that you have in your eyes, you came here for metal to fight and to die!

I'm fully expecting Santino to be taken out before he even gets to the ring, most likely by Mark Henry or Christian, setting up a match with Sheamus seeing as they've both had feuds with him last year that never really got a satisfying ending.

elimination chamber was ok, not great. the chamber matches themselves were fine, there have been better ones though. diva's match was better than i expected, ambulance match was what i expected but with a pretty nasty looking knock to the head for kane towards the end.

It's great that both retained, I was worried the Big Show might win.

I really like the way they set up Y2J/Punk for WM as well, clever.

I guess we'll be seeing a survivor series style elimination match at WM for control of both shows for Teddy and Johnny. I'll have to side with Johnny. I won't be able to keep watching WWE if I have to hear "YA GOT A MATCH UP NEXT, HOLLA PLAYA, HOLLA, DA UNDERTAKER!" I fucking despise Teddy Long.

But yeah, decent PPV.

long can stay on smackdown or leave altogether. he's so shit, if he's not making someone "go one on one with the undertaker" he's making them "go one on one with randy orton", or his fucking tag team matches.

punk vs jericho in the chamber was amazing, because they got it out of the way but gave us absolutely nothing, and set up jericho's claim to a rematch with him not being eliminated.

santino was booked brilliantly. i knew he was never gonna win, but when it came down to him and bryan i actually wanted to see him win just for the reaction :lol: i guess he'll be up for a push after that, especially with eliminating rhodes and the crowd reaction to him. bug show climbing in bryans pod was the best bit of that match though, but as it was overall pretty boring thats not too hard.

Watched Elimination chamber today round a mates, first time i've watched wrestling in ages, must say im so glad I don't follow it anymore, the calibre of stars for the titles is utter shit compared to when I used to watch it, had to lol at the fact that Mark Henry and Christian are title contenders too and the fact that Christian has won it twice :lol: , good to see the Spanish announcer table is still gettting destroyed even though it was an absolutely pathetic choke slam

christian deserves to be a title contender, and is a multi time world champion outside of wwe as well

Good! It's nice to see. I just really hope they don't fuck it up and have them fighting tonight on Raw. Also, if Taker loses his streak to HHH I will cry and cease watching all wrestling forever. I really mean that, I can't deal with it emotionally.

I hope he has Johnny Cash as his entrance again, but I doubt it.
