The Two Sheds Review: WWE Elimination Chamber

It was the final pay per view stop on the road to Wrestlemania, but was it any good? That’s what I’m hoping to find out by taking a look back at WWE’s Elimination Chamber, shown live in the early hours of this past Monday morning on Sky Sports here in Britain.

Both combatants had a greatRead More
Bunch of stuff to discuss before Sunday. My Elimination Chamber predictions should be posted over the weekend. WWE Battleground 2013 Just one quick note: Battleground did a near record low pay-per-view buy rate last October. Not to brag, but I called it!
