Refresh my memory - how does a double count out reflect in the prediction thread?

Surprised by Naomi's win. Glad to see Corbin appear to be on a path for the IC. Curious where Harper's loss (although expected) leaves him.

But doesn't he hate both guys now? I was reading elsewhere that Erick Rowan was close to coming back, though.

I joined in a few minutes after it started and hung in there until the Nikki-Nattie match, which went on and on and on and I just decided to come back later.

I don't understand anything about the handicap match.

The tag turmoil match was decent but lacked something (built up teams?). The only three realistically winning were AA, Usos, and maybe Slater & Rhyno. I was expecting something, anything to happen after AA pulled it out to shotgun something great for WM (Revival?), but nothing. Looks like we are going for AA vs Usos, which will get stuck somewhere on the eight hour preshow.

The other two womens matches were good.

Glad to see Wyatt get the big win. And really glad to see a safer EC.

The biggest change for safety was removing that metal grating on the ring apron and replacing it with a mat. That grating really messed up wrestlers over the years.

Also noticed that the plexiglass on the pods don't shatter anymore. Just stays in one solid piece when it breaks away from the pods framework.

And whenever the camera caught a close-up of the chains on the Chamber, it looked like all the chain links seemed to have a thin black rubber coating over them.

I feel the show suffered from "we all know what's gonna happen"-itis.
The crowd didn't react to most things despite the ring action being solid. From the top of my head, only the 2nd half of Orton-Harper and the EC match itself got great responses.

So I am very in the middle on the Wyatt title win. He had it coming, because the guy's been working hard the past 2-3 years trying to stay over, keep his insane character interesting and in the end put over others.
But...the set up for it all is so lazy. Give it to him in a match that builds nohting, then have the insta-quickie feud with Orton for WM. Taadaa done.

And it's awesome to see how we're apparently starting the Miz/Maryse vs Cena/Nikki feud. Nikki Bella bumps into Maryse and covers her in powder. omg...

The ring looked a lot safer, allowing them to do some new spots. But yeah *shrug* in the end, it was just there.

Unless you guessed a DCO, it counts as a loss for ya.

I don't know what they've got cooked up for how the break-up is going to go down, but in terms of achievements and building guys, wouldn't it have made sense to reverse Wyatt and Orton's positions? Wyatt gets the Rumble win for his resume, Orton wins the Chamber, Wyatt gets the first title win at Wrestlemania? I guess Wyatt might still retain at Wrestlemania, but the milestones are all backwards here for the new guy on top. The new guy didn't get negligently pressured into letting Brock Lesnar concuss him though.

I watched this entire show for some reason. I don't regret it because there was nothing bad about it, but I can't think of anything that actually compelled me to keep watching.

The highlight for me was Mauro Ranallo making a Midnight Express reference during... I forget which women's match. Beck vs Mickie, I think... when he described one of them as divorcing the other's arm. (For those of you who don't remember the '80s, Jim Cornette called Bobby Eaton's armbreaker "Divorce Court" because "It doesn't just separate the shoulder, it divorces it."

Also, I forgot just how much I enjoy Heath Slater's selling. I've been a fan of his since The Nexus, he really deserves better than the gimmicks he's been given.

Also, Naomi winning the title with an actual finisher and not a roll-up was nice.

I assume Nikki Bella & Natalya will be facing off in WWE's first ever Last Woman Standing match to counter the Iron Woman and Hell in a Cell matches from Raw.

I'd guess the breakup will come in the form of Bray being all "Randy, now you can challenge the universal champion and the Family will control both brands!" and Orton is all LOLNOPE. If Bray won the Rumble and Orton the title, you'd have the logical gap of why Bray would choose to face his own "controlled" guy rather than challenge for Raw's belt.

I really hope Bray retains at Mania and has a nice-sized title reign. The idea of his character holding the championship is a very interesting one.



George Michael weighed his options. Maeby had chastised him for not taking risks, and what would be a bigger risk than perpetuating a lie about software just to ignite the passions of a woman? Of course it would be a lie, and since Maeby wouldn't know it was a lie, he wouldn't appear to be taking a risk. Perhaps the bigger risk was to tell his father he was lying, that he came up with it because he wanted his father to leave so he could enjoy what remained of his senior year. After all, he wondered, wouldn't that be the course of action taken by an overtly sexual man, a man who owns a pair of matador pants? He had not responded now for 41 seconds according to his unfailing internal clock, and it was time to come clean.

Thanks for the clarification; I figured that would be the case. Looks like no perfect records this year!

Honestly, I'm just pleased to have guessed the Ziggler match correctly. Props to kellogs for the most accurate prediction of that match.

      I'm not the Champion for nothing!!

      Actually I only went for that prediction as it seems like they want people to lose momentum by being pinned before beating someone down after the match. And then probably go for 50/50 booking in the next match!

Wyatt vs. Orton at WrestleMania for the title seemed logical, yes, but I honestly didn't expect that Wyatt would finally be booked to win the WWE Championship. He's been booked to lose damn near every feud he's ever been in since back when The Wyatt Family feuded with The Shield.

But then again, WWE surely wouldn't give away the main event of WrestleMania (which at the time would have been Cena vs. Orton) on free TV, right?

Congratulations to Bray Wyatt!

(Infrequent watcher here) Is it just me or has Natalya had a bunch of work done? I barely recognised her.
