This is one of those frustrating events that is really impressive at timeS,but really bad at others,tainting the whole thing.
We start off with an enjoyable i.c. title match as BIG E. LANGSTON defends against JACK SWAGGER. Swagger gets a surprising amount of cheers and looks fine,as does Big E in all fairness,the match has some good moments and I felt kicked off the show nicely.
Then THE NEW AGE OUTLAWS defend their belts against the USOs. It's not so much bad,just nothing great.
TITUS O NEAL gets his hands on former partner DARREN BROWN. Again,not a bad match,but very so what,a feud few people care about.
Just as things look hopeless,THE WYATT FAMILY take on THE SHIELD in this very impressive 6 man tag. I was expecting this match to be at WM30,it was easily good enough to be. So we have it earlier than I expected,but that doesn't taint it,it's a highly entertaining and well paced match,lots of highlights,some really impressive moves,originality and more. This feud had a great feel to it and could well produce some classics,there's surely got to be a no DQ type match coming up,which this almost was. It is a top match,recommended.
Okay,back done to earth with a bump. The brilliant AJ defends her diva's title against CAMERON. No one cared. It doesn't last long,it just tells the story that needs to be told to set up what I assume will be AJ's next feud. Sorry but Cameron just doesn't excite.
BATISTA tries to prove his worth pre-WRESTLEMANIA,as he goes up against ALBERTO DEL RIO. This is so dull it shocked me. Batista isn't a shadow of his former self,Del Rio doesn't look great and the entire match.though only several minutes just drags.
It just baffles me that Batista is considered a top seller for WM30 by the wwe,he clearly doesn't still have it,or this is just too much too soon. Not that this match sounded anything special anyway,but I thought it would be at least enjoyable. Seriously,this is a joke.
Now for the ELIMINTION CHAMBER featuring CHRISTIAN,SHEAMUS,DANIEL BRYAN,RANDY ORTON,JOHN CENA and ANTONIO CESARO. Can ORTON keep his belt is really the question of this match. It is a good one,lots of action,the chamber gets quite a bit of use with broken pods and stuff,so it's hard to fault. I loved most of it,but the end just seems a bit of a mess.
Okay controversy sells,but the last several minutes were frustrating to watch after such a good start and middle,pity.
So all in all,this is a great event,i would say for three matches,but the 6 man tag is the one that really shines.
I just look at the good moments and then the bad and think WHAT HAPPENED?
