or: How I Learned to Listen to the Internet Rumors and Realize They're Probably True This Time
Bray Wyatt wins the Elimination Chamber: If this doesn't happen, it's either a late audible or WWE has done a tremendous job of swerving the dirt sheets and their readers. Wyatt wins to set up Wrestlemania vs. Orton, something happens to get Cena vs. Miz going, and maybe AJ vs. Shane starts up in some way as well. Nikki Bella d. Natalya: I guess? As I recently learned, it's the first televised singles match between the two during their feud, but it feels like it might also be the blowoff, especially if the Wrestlemania rumors are true. American Alpha retains in Tag Team Turmoil: I feel like they didn't put much thought into this. So either Alpha retains or they're dropping the straps so they can win them back. I'll go with "retains". Alexa Bliss d. Naomi: After listening to the LAW and others, I can't shake the feeling that there's a schmozz coming because of the contract situation, but I initially thought Alexa would have the belt going into Wrestlemania, so I'll stick with that. Mickie James d. Becky Lynch: Round 1 goes to Mickie.
Dolph Ziggler d. Apollo Crews and Kalisto: I don't understand the point of this. But if Ziggler loses, then I REALLY don't understand the point of this.
Randy Orton d. Luke Harper: They haven't really heated him up since he won the Rumble. Need to start soon.

I feel Bray is the only way to go for the chamber. Everyone else apparently has plans, outside of Corbin who I don't see winning it yet. Combine that with the fact they did Cena/Orton on Smackdown shows they have no plans for that to be the Mania match. It's also long overdue, Bray has been rumoured for years to be getting a title run it's just a shame it'll lead to a Orton/Bray feud and that feud fell flat last year when they started it. Anyway I pretty much agree with all of the choices above, although I could see Becky beating Mickie. Also Dolph needs to just kills these guys and move on as it hasn't helped his heel turn one bit being put with these 2.
yeah. People really forgot that the Rumble match is designed to set up Wrestlemania, and that match certainly did that. Set up at LEAST 3 Mania matches, maybe more. And the undercard was really really good. Rumble was the best WWE PPV in a minute.

Naomi's just kind of been there for me, never making much of a wave. Was surprised when I looked and saw she's been working in the WWE for about 7 years. I'm fine with her having the title but it reminds me of the attitude era when it seemed every women would get the title at least once.
On another note I thought Bray was booked so well in that main event, don't think I've seen him stronger. It helped that the match overall was great as well and with Bray beating both AJ & Cena clean just added to that for me.
Thought the main event was excellent. Nice to see Bray with the title.
Apart from Orton vs Harper, the rest of the show as average as I expected.
I like Naomi on Total Divas, she seems a genuinely nice gal and deserves at least a shot at a run with the tittle. I don't like her entrance though. If she's ever in a grudge feud with anyone, will she still dance her way to the ring etc?
Same problem I have with a Rich Swanns entrance.
Don't be surprised to find yourself forgetting to remember...
