Elimination Chamber was... strange.

The planned matches were good. But the Divas match went on forever, as did the Laurenitis thing.

Plus what the fuck random woman with the squits and a leprecauhn loves the cheese. THe promo lasted longer than the bloody match did.

Great elimination chamber matches though. Sad as fuck about Cena winning again though :/

Cena's promo on Raw was fantastic! Also i'm excited to see HITC with Taker. I'm worried he'll lose though. And yeah, Barrett's injury looked harsh. Especially when you hear

"FUCK!

FUCK!

(are you ok)

NO!

FUCK!"

:lol:

ffs has Paul Wight never heard of gently dropping someone over the ropes to be caught? I know Barrett came off worst (dislocated elbow) but if Dolph hadn't have gotten his arm up he would've hit that announce table jaw first.

They do, but he's no good anyway. He fucks up tonnes and generally isn't very safe when there are several people in a match. Like how Rey Mysterio isn't safe to work with, except Big Show it tends to be with his spots in non 1 on 1 matches

I've noticed lately that Big Show isn't a very safe worker. He appeared to injure Barrett at Elimination Chamber as well. He flinched on Barrett's top rope elbow drop, who landed awkwardly on his arm.

Raw was pretty good, aside.

wade barrett is out for 6-8 weeks :( what terrible timing, this means he might be able to return at WM for MITB, but its unlikely he'll be back in time for that, never mind a feud.

While it is a massive shame for Barrett in the sense that he's not going to be a part of Wrestlemania, I think it could help him in the long run. As of recently Barrett has had very little in terms of momentum playing only small roles in both the Rumble and Chamber match and I think he'd be able to be entered straight back in to the main event very easily when he returns, as opposed to being put in a filler feud at Wrestlemania. Having said that though it doesn't look like that's happening for Christian and ADR at the moment so you never know.

i expect some form of GM vs GM match at wrestlemania, most likely otunga vs someone of teddy longs choosing, for control of both shows. could be good if they do it, similar to the battle of the billionaires

Hmmm I liked the suggestion someone made a few pages back that it might be a survivor series type match, with some singles matches to build it up (they've already started with Otunga vs Ezekial Jackson the other day.) Otunga, Christian, Henry, Del Burrito and Swagger for team Laurinitis... Big Zeke, Santino, Orton... two others for team Teddy? That would be good.

That was mine! It's the way I sees it going. But then, we need to remember there will be a MITB match, so maybe they could be one and the same.

Anyone seen this yet, Ring Ka King?

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jo9Yq1QBZhw&feature=related


It appears to be some sort of TNA developmental territory in India with Sanjay Dutt, Magnus, Steiner, Chavo Guerrero, Abyss and Matt Morgan all involved. WCW Thunder levels of bad promos and gimmicks, fireworks, bollywood dancers, commentary in Hinglish from the Indian Masterchef winner (who looks a bit like Tazz)... and still better than Smackdown.

I haven't got to this episode yet (it appears to be one card turned into a small run on Indian TV- that first link only has 2 matches in it), but fuck me this is hilarious;

as bad as ring ka king may seem, business wise its unusually excellent for TNA. they've made lots of bad decisions but this is not one.
