We now get a promo setting up the next WWE PPV which is Money in the Bank. They go to the announcers and Cole announces that Rusev will not be in the chamber match for the IC title due to injury. Now they go to a backstage segment with Lana and Dolph Ziggler where she wishes him luck in the chamber match. Next up is the Diva’s Title match a triple threat between ©Nikki Bella against Naomi and Paige…



Triple Threat Match (Diva’s Title): © Nikki Bella vs. Naomi vs. Paige (Winner: © Nikki Bella via Pin Fall): This was a great triple threat match. It looked early on like Paige was going to get a dominant victory as she tossed Nikki and Naomi around the ring. As the match wore on every Diva had her moment and look like they were close to victory. In the end Nikki let Naomi do the dirty work on Paige and hit her with a rack attack for the pin and the victory…

 They segway into the video promo for the champion vs champion match between Kevin Owens and john Cena. So up next is the Champ vs Champ match between Cena and Kevin Owens…


Grudge Match (Champ vs. Champ): © John Cena vs. © Kevin Owens (Winner: © Kevin Owens via Pin Fall): This match was a surprise to everyone as they knew it would be a good match. But no one knew how good, both Cena and Owens shined is this match as it enticed a couple of “This is Awesome” chants from the crowd. Overall this is a strong candidate for match of the night. Owens wins after his 2nd pop up power bomb to get the one, two, three and a debut victory over John Cena. After the match Owens stayed behind and cut a promo about how everyone knows who he is now because he beat John Cena…


Singles Match: Bo Dallas vs. Neville (Winner: Neville via Pin Fall): This is a match that takes me back to the NXT days, both Dallas and Neville really shined. The crowd seemed really into the match and it even got a “This is Awesome “chants due to the nice high spots by Neville. In the end Neville manages to line up Dallas for the Red Arrow and gets a pin and the win…

 Flash to a backstage segment in which HHH is talking to Reigns and Ambrose about their bond and brotherhood. Then he tells them that is Reigns gets involved in the match then Ambrose will be disqualified. We go back to the ring and they are lowering the Chamber onto the ring. Up next is the IC Title match, they go to a video setting up the IC Chamber match…



Elimination Chamber Match (IC Title): Dolph Ziggler vs. Ryback vs. King Barrett vs. RTruth vs.Mark Henry vs. Sheamus (Winner: Ryback via Pin Fall): This was a brutal match that saw everything from RTruth rolling to Dolph Ziggler going head 1st thru a lexan glass wall. With the match seeming to go on in a pile of bodies the 1st elimination was Wade Barrett as he was pinned by R-truth. The 2nd elimination was R-Truth as he is pinned by Ryback. The 3rd elimination was Mark Henry after he was pinned by Sheamus. The 4th elimination was Dolph Ziggler after he was pinned by Sheamus. In the end it was Ryback pinning Sheamus after he hit him with a Shell Shock to win the IC title. Ryback is presented the title by and injured Daniel Bryan…



After showing a commercial for the Money in the Bank PPV, they recap Kevin Owens win over John Cena from earlier. They also announce Round 2 in the Cena/Owens rivalry at the MiTB PPV., and the 6 contestants in the ladder match. Up next is the main event match and it will be for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship. Out 1st is © Seth Rollins against his former mate Dean Ambrose…


Singles Match (WWE Title): © Seth Rollins vs. Dean Ambrose (Winner: Dean Ambrose via DQ): This match is my pick for match of the night. The reason why is because both Ambrose and Rollins both left it all in the ring. They beat the hell out of each other and there wasn’t much interference from the Authority. In the end Ambrose got the victory but it was overturned by the referee because Rollins pulled him into the knee of Dean Ambrose. So Ambrose got the victory but Rollins remains the World Heavyweight Champion…

Overall Rating: 3.5 out of 4
