HHH and RVD start it off. I expected Booker T and Jericho to start it.

GOOD GAWD ALMIGHTY Kane just threw Jericho through one of the chambers the guys were in.

I tell you what, I wanna see an Elimination Chamber match on the next WWE video game.

LOL! RVD's the first guy in and the first guy gone. Booker pins him with a missile dropkick.

I like the setup of this match. It reminds of sitting in the Omni in Atlanta watching the first WarGames match.

No real surprise that it comes down to Shawn Michaels and HHH.

SEVEN DIFFERENT SHADES OF AWESOME. I don't care that the earlygoing was slow, I don't care that it came down to HHH Vs. Shawn, I don't care that Booker and RVD were eliminated early, SHAWN FUCKING MICHAELS is World Champion again, and right here, right now, that puts a smile on my face that no smarky-smark smark bitching is going to write off. Now I'm going to bed coz it's four in the morning. Sweet dreams!

Yes, that match was great. The PPV was entertaining. What else can you ask for?

I'm so excited about the prospect of a crippled champion dominating the show with his best buddy until his best buddy takes his title back at the next PPV. SMELL THE RATINGS! SMELL THE NEW STARS! This is WCW.

The "inescapable" Chamber's door busts open not even 5 minutes into the match and people are getting thrown through "bulletproof" plexiglass. I don't know...it was entertaining but did not live up to the hype. I'm not as bitter as fuelinjected is about the whole thing, but he does have a point...how is Michaels going to defend his title regularly?

It's not bitterness, it's just the fact that they're gonna die unless they create a new star. Imagine if RVD was the one to take the title from Michaels. Then Michaels would be serving a purpose. This little glory run is doing nothing for anyone except him and HHH.

How about we find out who the hell it will serve on RAW tomorrow night? How about we don't get our smarky smark smark panties all in a twist for once when WE aren't sure what is going to happen?

HHH is NOT the World Champion. That is all you need to know.

Personally, I'd rather have HHH as champion instead of Shawn.

Why do I have no faith in them to make good decisions? They dropped the ball with the Invasion, with Booker T, with RVD, with Chris Jericho, with the nWo, with Ric Flair, with Hogan's return, with Austin, with Bischoff. That's why I have no faith in their booking.

I thought it was really cool. Good premise, scary looking Cage. It could use some tweaking though. I think it would be even better as a 30 competitor match though. :)

Maybe since it was sponsored by X-Box, they should've had X-Boxes in each Chamber so the other 4 could have been playing RAW (natch) while they were waiting to enter. Would've been a wink to the smarks since apparently Booker plays video games backstage instead of whatever WWE protocol/etiquette says he shouldbe doing.

Maybe I'm an ignorant fool. But could you please define "dropped the ball"?

Here is how I see it. In the case of RVD, Jericho, Booker, and Hogan, how have they dropped the ball? They are all over with the fans, people pay money to see them, they sell mass amounts of merchandise, and overall, they make the WWE tons of money! Sounds like the WWE did exactly what they were trying to do in this case...

As for Flair, just months ago, people were complaining that they didn't want to see Flair wrestling anymore, because he was too old...so I ask you, what SHOULD they do with him. Send him home and never put him on TV? Once again...they dropped the ball, how?

Bischoff...what other role would you want this guy to play. Would you rather him be booked into the main event at PPVs? I think he's in a very suitable role, and plays it quite well.

The Invasion and the nWo, I'll give ya those. There was so much more they could have done with these storylines...

I agree with the Invasion comments, but as for the Elimination Chamber, for a first time, it was really good, so I would like to see it in the future. They'll perfect the thing in time, I'm sure.

I loved the structure. The only thing I found a little cheesy was the light show and music at the end of every five minutes when a new superstar was to enter. It seemed a little like a bad game show.

I think if it's used again in the future(and I hope it is), you'll see the violence/extreme style go up a notch, as the wrestlers will have been able to use the first match as a starting point.

I heard that it couse $500K to design/build this thing, so I'm guessing it won't just be for that one night.
