Raw Elimination Chamber - only guy I see having a chance to take the title off Punk is Jericho, and I think they'll opt to have Jericho challenge and lose at Mania as opposed to win, have a one-month or so reign and lose it back to Punk at the big show. Punk wins.
Smackdown Elimination Chamber - with Orton out, I don't see any really likely result than Bryan retaining. Bryan wins.
John Cena vs. Kane, ambulance match - for a multitude of reasons, Cena obviously wins here.
Beth Phoenix vs. Tamina Snuka - as has been mentioned, Beth wins and moves on to Kharma.
I landed above 50% last year finally, so I'm charged up for this year's predictions. I'm hopeful for an improvement to about 52, 53%.
RAW ELIMINATION CHAMBER This one is actually tough. They've almost telegraphed the outcome here with their Mania plans... unless you consider that Ziggler has nothing to do if they go forward with Jericho/Punk. Then again, with Orton out over on Smackdown they won't be going with a 3-way for that belt. I'd love to see a curveball and get Sheamus vs. Punk at Mania just for the twist and fun matchup (though unlikely), so I'll go with the usual guess here. Winner: Jericho
SMACKDOWN ELIMINATION CHAMBER I love the surprise entrant - hey, he's entertaining - and if I have to make a prop bet it's that we get a Khali/surprise entrant showdown in some capacity. I also expect Big Show surprisingly to last the entire match as the most obvious face until the end. Winner: Daniel Bryan
KANE vs. CENA Ugh. But the twist I see is Cena having to overcome odds to come back for Rock. Winner: Kane
BETH PHOENIX vs. TAMINA SNUKA Winner: Beth Phoenix. Kharma does the anticipated run-in and point to the sign.
EXTRA BONUS MATCH GUESS! THE USOS vs. EPICO/PRIMO I loves me some Rosa. Winner: Epico/Primo
Raw Elimination Chamber: I think it would make sense for Punk to win this match setting up a WWE Championship match versus Jericho for WM.
Smackdown Elimination Chamber: A lot of people seem to say that the Cena v. Kane is the lock of the night whereas since Orton is injured, I am inclined to say Bryan winning is the lock of the night unless we have an Edge type event where the one participant (in this case Santino) gets beaten up coming to the ring and another guy takes his place. Still saying Bryan wins.
John Cena v. Kane- Ambulance Match: Cena wins here and probably putting an end to this feud a month and half before he faces Rock.
Beth Phoenix v. Tamina- WWE Divas Championship: I will say Beth wins here setting up a feud with Kharma.
This seems like a pretty easy PPV to pick, with only the Raw Chamber match really having me doubt anything, and even there there are really only two possibilities. Makes me worry that they'll do something weird just to do it.
Punk. It's been obvious for some time that Punk vs. Jericho is the match for Mania, so the only question is who will go in as champ. I'm thinking that with Jericho having been gone for so long, they don't really want to give him a reign now, and it's not like he really needs it anyway.
Bryan. First off: really, Santino? Is the roster that thin? I realize that Henry, Orton, Rey, Christian, ADR, and Sin Cara all would have this spot if they were physically capable, but still. Even DiBiase or Zeke would be a better option. Or maybe, just maybe, they shouldn't have been doing that "he's a losing loser who loses" angle with Drew McIntyre. Anyway, I still think that if it weren't for all those injuries, Orton vs. Henry would have made the most sense for Mania, but that's not an option now. Of the guys who are healthy, I don't see a better option to defend against Sheamus.
Cena. OK, I have a little doubt here, but I think they'll want to close out the feud with some positivity for Cena going into the Mania match with the Rock.
Beth. When was the last time there was a Divas title match between two people with last names? Ah, maybe one of the Bellas against Beth, but that's about it. (No, I do NOT consider "Kelly Kelly" as constituting a first and last name.) Anyway, the clear logic is to continue this "Beth has beaten everybody" angle until Kharma shocks everyone (except, you know, people who watched or read about the Rumble, none of whom apparently work for WWE) by returning.
1) Bryan/Khali/Santino/Show/Rhodes/Barrett(World Title Eliminator Chamber Match) - Bryan somehow survives by nefarious means and Henry-ference. To explain, I have a feeling that Santino is either not going to be in long or end up being attacked by Henry walking to the ring, and Henry taking over...briefly, and will definitely be limited if that happens.
2) Beth/Tamina (Divas Title Match) - Beth...Glam Slam...gets revenge...Kharma comes out to scare her.
3) Cena/Kane (Ambulance Match) - Cena with the AA either in the ambulance, or thrown into the ambulance, then shutting the door. Then, Cena starts preparing for the Rock. Will Ryder get involved...maybe not, selling the fall on Raw. But, I think there could be a turn for Ryder on the Raw after Wrestlemania, when the Cena/Rock match is done.
4) Punk/Jericho/Miz/Truth/Ziggler/Kingston (WWE Title Elimination Chamber) - Jericho wins title with codebreaker on Punk via Laurenitis distraction.
Bonus match: Sheamus over McIntyre with Brogue Kick as a warm-up to WM, just for time filler.
Laurenitis announcement: "Game changer??? Might stop the show???" HHH/UT with HBK as ref made official.
I fully expect the E to do "something" here to throw up the sense of inevitability that this PPV has. I wager that this something will be dumb.
Beth Phoenix wins. I expect some sort of interference from Natalya. I recommend that she transitions from the sharpshooter into the Barking Spider.
Kane v Cena. The very epitome of a place holder feud. A can't help but think this is where the change up comes. All the smart money is and should be with Cena. But I've a nagging feeling this bubbles on to fill in the weeks where the Rock isn't on Raw. Kane wins. It will be done in such a way that it doesn't matter though.
With the Smackdown chamber, and with the cast of entrants named, I can't see anyone other than Bryan winning. Unless we get some wacky short title reign to swerve everyone. I reckon we get to Bryan, Orton, Seamus in a 3 way for wrestlemania. Maybe Orton magically heals and usurps Santino for his spot? Anyway, don't over think it. Bryan wins. I will also join in with the set up to the Cobra, as I always do.
Raw chamber is a coin toss between Jericho / Punk I think. Coin says Punk wins.
It was very hard to resist writing out '2013' phoenetically as Sheamus said it, yeah. Same with when he said thunder and it came out as 'tunder'. With Sheamus and Booker T on the same show, there's so many transcription challenges to be had!
