Santino in an Elimination Chamber…UGH!!!!!!!
Couldnt they have just brought back henry for the match instead of santino >.> dumb move WWE
I believe Christian is still injured. In terms of build on Smackdown, Santino (unfortunately) is the guy. Who say he 1.even lasts long in the match or 2. even makes it to the match (they could do the Kofi treatment like the Raw 2009 chamber match).
Santino calls for the Cobra… Bryan counters with a LeBell Lock!
I guess it makes more sense than letting someone else take a pointless fall but Smackdown is looking thin with Orton, Christian, and Mark Henry all at least semi-injured.
mad for it not being christian? umm maybe xian isnt ready yet.. or maybe they dont want to risk him injuring himself again. this is gonna sound odd maybe but… Honestly, when you think about it, Santino is one of the most over guys they have, has been for some time, If he’s not top 12 i dont know who is.. Im more upset with Khali being in the match.. Santino is atleast, well he’s not a great wrestler but he’s entertaining in the ring.. adds some comedy in a match in which you gotta believe Daniel Bryan is gonna be doing most of the work in..him and cody rhodes IMO. gotta think they will be the ones, along with Santino now who will be taking the more “severe looking” bumps.. Show and Khali in the match ruins it more so than santino.
Bryan Orton Cody Show Khali Barrett
Bryan Cody Show Khali Barrett Santino
Not very good originally IMO either. Take Out show,Take out Khali.. But really these 2 6 man matches explain what WWE’S problem is right now… there is no depth behind Cena or Orton.
I hope Santino makes it to the final two and pins DB with the Cobra. That would be hilarious.
lmao nows that’s some phenomenal booking right there…
I thought Christian was out on injury? And while I agree that Marella is a piss poor choice I have to reminisce. The Marella character showed promise when he debuted, WWE quickly ruined any chances of cementing him as a valuable asset by making him synonymous with hornswoggle. However let’s remember something, Miz grew on alot of us despite first appearing to us as nothing more than an old MTV byproduct (as in from the Real World) becuase he was continuously rammed down our throat, and it all helped when his heel turn happened to make us forget he was some MTV joke. Now that I think of it, I’m scared. If they can turn one reality star into a world champ for all we know they could be in Stamford planning something for snooki… Ewwww. Anyway back on track, while I again reiterate that Marella is a bad choice, it should be worth noting that anything is possible, maybe they’ll finally build Marella right. If they can pull that off (and stop the stupid farting angle) they could be on to bigger and better things.
This is awful
santino to win, and go onto defend against Khali in a bra and panties match for the WH title at wrestlemania! It’s perfect, it will steal the spotlight from rock v cena and sheamus v r truth for the wwe title, it’ll even top undertaker v brodus clay I’m loving it!
FIRST OFF ITS NO WORSE THAN THE RAW CHAMBER, BOTH MATCHES ARE HORRIBLE… OH AND WHOEVER MADE THE COMMENT BOUT SNOOKI… SHES F’N HOT! GET SOME GLASSES, YOU PROB THINK BETH LOOKS GOOD!
Whoever said that Snooki looks good is a moron. A blind moron at that. SMH.
@b snooki is gross you need the glasses
My bet is Wade Barret winning here to face Sheamus at Mania. The WT match is going to be taking a huge back seat to Undertaker/HHH, and Cena/Rock anyways.
Santino… not my pick, but at least it somebody different
I thought this was a rib.
Santino will most likely won’t make the match anyway, just wait until Sunday where a heel will do what Edge did at WWE No Way Out 2009 and take out someone to get into that person’s spot. Kofi Kingston was the person Edge took out in the Elimination Chamber match same thing also happened in 2006 with Sabu being taken out (don’t know if Hardcore Holly attacked him on the PPV before the match, but i know Sabu did get taking out of the match) and replaced by Hardcore Holly in the ECW Extreme Elimination Chamber match.
There is no doubt Daniel Bryan is going to win this Chamber. Kind of pointless now.
Santino gets taken out by Alberto Del Rio on his way to the ring. Yes, I know he’s on Raw but who cares. Or by Jindel Mahel wait he sucks but gets a lot of tv time. I want Drew McIntrye to take his spot or even better someone like Dolph Ziggler or the Miz loose their match & come down to it as well.
Santino goes on to main event the biggest stage of them all!!! lol
Is Finn Balor a future WWE main eventer?
Should Dolph Ziggler leave WWE?
Should Sabu be inducted into the GERWECK.NET Hall of Fame?
