Match #1 (IC Title Match, Singles Match): Jack Swagger w/Zeb vs. © Big E (Winner: ©Big E via PF, Rating: 3.5 of 4): Zeb cuts a promo on Big E and how he doesn’t deserve the IC Title. This match was great watching two big young guys go out there and put it all into a match. The finish saw Big E counter a Ankle lock into a Big Ending and get the pin. Bad News Barrett comes out and knocks the USA for its performance in the Olympics in a Bad News Barrett segment. Overall this was a great way to start the PPV…

Match #3 (Grudge Match, Singles Match): Darren Young vs. Titus O’Neil (Winner: Titus O’Neil via PF, Rating: 3.0 of 4): Strong singles match for both of these long time tag team competitors and a huge win for Titus!! The finish saw Titus hit his finisher, the Clash of the Titus for the pin. After the match Bad News Barrett came out and ran down the local crowd, also ran down Hogan for hosting WM30.

Match #4 (Grudge Match, 6 Man Tag Team Match): The Shield vs. the Wyatt Family (Winner: The Wyatt’s via PF, Rating: 4.0 of 4): One of only two matches of this quality at the PPV. These two teams really put on a show!!! At one point Bray Wyatt takes Dean Ambrose over the barricade and Dean never comes back!!! The finish saw Reigns put up a valiant effort but 3 Wyatt’s was too much and Bray hits Sister Abigail for the pin. Overall both teams came out looking strong and the WWE Universe got the match it has been dying to see…

Match #5 (Divas Title Match, Singles Match): © AJ Lee w/Tamina vs. Cameron (Winner: Cameron via DQ, Rating: 3.0 of 4): AJ cuts a promo about a lack of competition in the Diva’s division lately. The crowd wasn’t really into either Diva throughout the match. The finish saw Tamina accidently kick AJ in the head and then proceeds to clothesline Cameron to make up for it. This match may have been better off never having existed. After the match Bad News Barrett came out and cut a promo on the WWE Network. Overall the WWE could have done better with a EMMA/Santino, Summer Rea/Fandango match in place of this one…

Match #6 (Grudge Match, Singles Match): Batista vs. Alberto Del Rio (Winner: Batista via PF, Rating: 3.0 of 4): This was a hard match to watch. Not because the wrestling was bad, that was pretty good. It was just hard to watch the crowd cheer for the heel (ADR) and boo the face (Batista). Del Rio opens the match by coming out on crutches with a brace complaining that he can’t wrestle. He then blindsides Batista before the match with a crutch. The finish saw Batista push Del Rio into a exposed turnbuckle to hit his finisher and get the win. Overall this was actually a really good match to watch…

Video Package: A video package is shown hyping the launch of the WWE Network tomorrow morning…

Video Package: A video package is shown hyping the Main Event and explaining the rules of the Chamber match…

Match #7 (WWE WHC Title Match, 6 Man Elimination match, ME): D.Bryan vs. Cesaro vs. Christian vs. Sheamus vs. J. Cena vs. © R.Orton (Winner: © Orton via PF, Rating: 4.0 of 4): This year’s Chamber match was awesome!! All of the competitors had shining moments and all of the Wrestlemania storylines for the top stars were set up nicely. Bryan by far was the most dominant in the cage and should have won. The finish saw Cena get jumped by the Wyatt’s before being eliminated by Orton and then Bryan gets attacked by Kane to allow Orton to retain his title. Elimination order #1 Sheamus by Chr., #2 Christian by DB, #3 Cesaro by JC, #4 John Cena by RO, #5 Daniel Bryan via PF. Overall this match made the whole PPV worth watching…

Overall Rating (3.5 of 4): Not their best PPV but a great way to set up Wrestlemania 30 and also this PPV was a whole hell of a lot better than the Royal Rumble was and that is saying a lot…

Match of the Night: Match #7 (WWE WHC Title Match, 6 Man Elimination match, ME): D.Bryan vs. Cesaro vs. Christian vs. Sheamus vs. J. Cena vs. © R.Orton (Winner: © Orton via PF, Rating: 4.0 of 4)
