Is it just me or does tomorrow's Elimination Chamber card look absolutely horrendous!? Not one decent match to look forward to and all the A-listers are left off of it (Lynch, Flair, Goldberg, Reigns, Wyatt, etc.). WWE is just mailing it in for tomorrow.

When all you need to do to get a big match at WM is tell Goldberg you’re next in line for a title shot or sneak up behind John Cena and point at the sign, there’s no need to enter the elimination chamber.

Twas a pretty boring PPV. The tag chamber match was decent enough but otherwise not much really mattered on the card. The Slog to WM continues.
Go ahead, make my millennium.

Yup, last night was very predictable and forgettable. Let’s see how the next 4 weeks look but so far some matches in the Mania card have my interest: Becky/Blaszler, Charlotte/Rhea, Goldberg/Reigns

Shayna Baszler is one scary woman. When she slammed Liv Morgan into the plexi of the chamber it looked like she legit cracked her head. That was a hard bump even if you covered your head.

One question on Flair/Ripley. If flair wins, is she going to have to compete in NXT? How would it work to have the NXT championship on Raw?

Rhea wins, Bianca interferes sets up Charlotte next feud.

really though Mania will be cancelled and WWE will cease operations for a few months because of a ban on gatherings in public places.

It’s already begun around me and in England. Heard MLB might even entertain playing in an empty stadium so as not to disrupt the season. Plus MLB, NBA, NHL, and MLS have all limited media in the locker rooms (which I’m sure the athletes aren’t complaining about). This is nuts.

buddies and i already have plans to Mania like we do every year....i cannot see it happening now. luckily our AirBNB is fully refundable and we can defer our airline tickets to a later date (thanks SW!). just waiting for Mania and NXT to get cancelled.

I'm thinking Mania's getting postponed. Heard the contingency plan is to have it sometime in the summer (June-August).

Night 1 of WrestleMania was a dud. Match of the night was Taker/AJ but the Women's tag title match and Becky/Shayna were decent. Night 2 was much better. Flair/Ripley, Cena/Wyatt, Edge/Orton were solid matches. Now that this year's WrestleMania is over, let's put it all behind us as compared to any other WM, this was difficult to get through. I applaud everyone for putting it on still, but at least for me, it didn't come across all that great.

Anyone been watching/keeping up with Dark Side of the Ring on Vice? I like it. Well done, hour-long documentaries on various wrestlers/promoters/promotions. I hope they make a Season 3 and I'd enjoy seeing more.

i think they already announced a S3. I've been watching every episode. It's really well done. Need to watch this week's.
