Re: 2017 Elimination Chamber PPV

Tonight the WWE will premiere their branded Elimination Chamber structure. Putting in spoiler. It's different in shape:

The thinness of the post-split rosters hurts a lot. It would maybe work if he was beating the **** out of Sami Zayn.

Re: 2017 Elimination Chamber PPV

So Slater and Rhyno never broke up? Not that there's a much better use for them than as a JTTS face tag team, but I thought they nearly made the break-up official at some point.

I thought they were police? Those are clearly naval uniforms.

Re: 2017 Elimination Chamber PPV

Ambrose really is the only face who gets cheered on SD though. I almost consider Corbin a de facto face at this point just because he's not friendly with other heels.

I'm guessing the Rhyno turn they were teasing last month got put on the shelf because of Ryder's injury?

Knew the elim chamber looked different from zoomed out, since it looked like doors were on outside but couldn't tell from their view

I forgot about Tyler Breeze's music sucking. I definitely remember he had excellent music in NXT.

It's hard being a face in WWE right now, since heels usually get to look cooler and more dangerous. I think a big part of why Owens became a cowardly wimp is because they didn't want him to get cheered as much (though some part of the crowd still cheers).

The most effective faces right now are probably Sami, Dean, Becky, Sasha and Bayley.

Re: 2017 Elimination Chamber PPV

^ Ya same with AJ. They've tried hard to reign in the cheers on him. Definitely agree on the cowardly heel route for KO to prevent him from being cheered .... they kinda have to.

At Survivor Series the real faces as opposed to "heels who get face pops" were Becky, Bayley, Dean and Heath Slater from what I remember

Maybe it's not fair, but Lesnar and Goldberg are both faces imo. (Goldberg for sure, Lesnar is Lesnar I guess)

Re: 2017 Elimination Chamber PPV

They could get heels booed if they are up against faces that people actually want to see win. And they can make faces that people like if they don't castrate them when they turn them. They did it 15-20 years ago. They still could if they wanted to, but they don't for some reason.

Re: 2017 Elimination Chamber PPV

How many years are the USOs away from looking like their father? And will they both blow up at the same pace?

Re: 2017 Elimination Chamber PPV

On Raw, Goldberg is clearly a babyface, as are Seth Rollins and Sami Zayn.

American Alpha are faces, but are not exactly over. Perhaps The Revival will get American Alpha over.

Sure seems like this match format should always have the champions coming out last.

Re: 2017 Elimination Chamber PPV

Just noticed that the old style ring posts are back. Though it may just be because of the Elimination Chamber cage.

That's really disappointing. So entertaining in NXT. Are we getting a surprise here maybe with Revival or DIY?

Didn't we already do the thing where the USOs injured the Alphas? Then they did absolutely nothing with it.
