WWE World Heavyweight Championship: Seth Rollins (c) vs. Dean Ambrose I suppose the wild card here is how Roman Reigns will get involved. He was a little too accommodating in helping Dean get the title match last night. I wonder if that means he’s setting up a betrayal. Don’t know how it’ll happen, but Seth retains. Dean hopefully is being groomed for a bigger and more visible title win down the road. Say, is Kane’s job still on the line? Prediction: Seth Rollins
Elimination Chamber match for the vacant Intercontinental Championship: King Barrett vs. Sheamus vs. R-Truth vs. Dolph Ziggler vs. Ryback vs. Rusev You can make a case for most of these guys. Sheamus is a natural choice. R-Truth continually getting involved in the IC picture has to mean something at some point. Rusev could win to rehab his character. Ziggler could win and defend against Sheamus and Rusev. Prediction: Rusev
Elimination Chamber match for the Tag Team Championship: The New Day (c) vs. Cesaro & Tyson Kidd vs. The Lucha Dragons vs. The Ascension vs. Los Matadores vs. The Prime Time Players This should be a creative display, if nothing else. Part of me says it's too soon for The New Day to lose. The other part says it'll be really fun watching how The New Day deals with the negativity of losing. Gonna go out on a limb. Prediction: The Lucha Dragons
Champion vs. Champion: US Champion John Cena vs. NXT Champion Kevin Owens Neither title is on the line, right? KO had the upper hand during both confrontations with Cena, but something tells me this won’t be a case of even-steven booking. And June is right around the corner. Prediction: Kevin Owens
Triple Threat match for the Divas Championship: Nikki Bella (c) vs. Paige vs. Naomi Prediction: Naomi
Neville vs. Bo Dallas Unexpected (but pleasantly so) to have Bo come back and inserted right into a “PPV” program. Something’s up with all of the NXT visibility on the main show. Prediction: Bo Dallas
Rollins v Ambrose: I don't see Rollins dropping the title here. Authority gets involved, as usual, and so does Roman, and shenanigans happen, and Rollins retains.
IC Title Elimination Chamber: Can any of them lend the title the same value Daniel Bryan would have? No. Rusev would probably benefit the most from a win. Let's say creative thinks logically for once and he wins. Rusev's out injured apparently, let's go with Bad News instead.
Tag Title Elimination Chamber: Should be a lot of fun, but it is staggering not to see Harper and Rowan in the match. New Day's act is hot, and they should retain.
Cena v Owens: Neither should be losing to the other in what is essentially a meaningless match on a context-less show. I can imagine a Sportz Entertainment Finish that protects both guys.
Nikki Bella v Paige v Naomi: I have no idea. Let's say Paige, because why not.
Neville v Bo Dallas: The resurgence of Bo Dallas is intriguing, but I don't see why you would scuttle Neville's momentum with a loss here. Neville wins.

* Rollins * New Day * Naomi * Neville * Cena, but only via DQ...I'm hoping WWE isn't short-sighted enough to have Owens' first fall come to the last guy who could use the rub * Ryback wins the IC belt...Ziggler and Rusev take each other out in some kind of crazy chamber-related spot, leaving them easy pickings to be pinned by the others. Truth has no chance. Barrett already has his king thing as his 'title.' Ryback beats Sheamus for the show's big face victory.
After over 13 years and 6800 posts, was finally named W of the Day on 3/21/2015. It's now all worth it!

I wonder if there's a chance they would give Kevin Owens the win, then have him refuse to come back to Raw for a rematch, forcing John Cena to come to NXT? It seems like a great way for Vince to attempt to sabotage HHH's pet project. (I don't actually believe Vince is as mentally challenged as a lot of people seem to think, so I don't think he'd actually attempt to sabotage NXT, but I would enjoy hearing Owens challenging Cena to come down to where people actually wrestle.)
WWE World Heavyweight Championship: Seth Rollins (c) vs. Dean Ambrose Rollins retains via DQ by J&J interference
Elimination Chamber match for the vacant Intercontinental Championship: King Barrett vs. Sheamus vs. R-Truth vs. Dolph Ziggler vs. Ryback vs. Rusev Shaemus to set up a rematch once Bryan returns
Elimination Chamber match for the Tag Team Championship: The New Day (c) vs. Cesaro & Tyson Kidd vs. The Lucha Dragons vs. The Ascension vs. Los Matadores vs. The Prime Time Players Want Luchas to win, but probably New Day retains. After Smackdown, they'll probably get the Authority to stuff all three in the Chamber pod.

The WWE should pull all of their PPVs out of their ass at the last second because this is somehow the most interesting show on paper since the Royal Rumble. It's amazing what a little "temporarily forgetting that Randy Orton exists" can get you.
WWE WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH Seth Rollins (C) VS Dean Ambrose Dean Ambrose is, despite being saddled with a lot of nonsense and coming off of a good six months where he was just there, insanely over and if this was an era where they still truly listened to their fans, he would be getting ready to be World Champion. This is not that era. Seth Rollins wins, I'd like to say due to a heel turn from the suspiciously absent from the card Roman Reigns, but probably just through regular, non-game changing cheating.
ELIMINATION CHAMBER FOR THE INTERCONTINENTAL CHAMPIONSHIP King Barrett VS Dolph Ziggler VS Rusev Probably? VS R-Truth VS Sheamus VS Ryback Word on the streetz is that Rusev is hurt and going to be replaced by either Bray Wyatt or Kane. Hopefully the former. He was my pick to win, bringing the IC title into the icky Lana feud with Ziggler. Now? I'm not sure. I think everyone in the match or potentially in the match that isn't R-Truth or Kane has a solid shot at it. I guess I pick Sheamus, just because that's something the WWE is bound and determined to make happen.
ELIMINATION CHAMBER FOR THE WWE TAG TEAM CHAMPIONSHIP The New Day VS Cesaro & Tyson Kidd VS The Lucha Dragons VS The Ascension VS Los Matadores VS The Prime Time Players This is going to be so much fun. I can't wait to see what the combination of Cesaro, Kalisto and utter chaos presents. Somehow New Day retains because they aren't done being delightful yet.
John Cena VS Kevin Owens FUCK YES. And, yes, I know this is John Cena fighting a "new" hot upstart heel that everyone expects to be the next big thing and take over the world and I know the last two times that happened it led to singing ghost children and riveting games of red light/green light and the utterly emasculated Bray Wyatt and Rusev characters sulking around our TV screens. But I'm delusional enough to believe this time will be different. Kevin Fucking Owens, believe it.
DIVAS CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH Nikki Bella (C) VS Paige VS Naomi I want Paige to win her belt back and it also is probably time to pull the trigger on Naomi or just move on or she's going to be another Natalya/Alicia Fox/somewhat credible but lost in the shuffle diva - BUT "Nikki Bella retains and loses the title the next night to a debuting Charlotte" is my new "The Usos are keeping the tag belts warm to get squashed by The Ascension" and it'll probably turn out just as well for me. But still, that.
Neville VS Bo Dallas Neville is being pretty seriously pushed and has got to be considered a sure thing for Money In The Bank. Bo Dallas is great but no one working for the main roster watched NXT so they don't know that, so he's pretty much just a jobber. Neville.
Rollins - Brock must have his revenge, Rollins isn't dropping that belt yet.
Ryback - Rusev seemed the obvious winner so, if they've gotta change plans, why not put the belt on the Big Guy? He deserves it and you can always job him out to Rusev when the big Russian's healthy.
New Day - Act's still too hot to take the belts off them yet.
Kevin Owens - If the US Title was on the line, Cena would win for sure, but he can lose here and give a giant rub to Owens and cost himself nothing. Maybe some interference from whoever actually comes after the US Title next?
Naomi - Why not? She deserves a reign as much as anybody and she hasn't had one yet.
Neville - Duh.

Elimination Chamber match for the Tag Team Championship: The New Day (c) vs. Cesaro & Tyson Kidd vs. The Lucha Dragons vs. The Ascension vs. Los Matadores vs. The Prime Time Players This should be a creative display, if nothing else. Part of New Day
Champion vs. Champion: US Champion John Cena vs. NXT Champion Kevin Owens Disqualification. Cena wins. Owens looks like a monster.
Triple Threat match for the Divas Championship: Nikki Bella (c) vs. Paige vs. Naomi Bella
WWE World Heavyweight Championship: Seth Rollins (c) vs. Dean Ambrose Seth Rollins. Hopefully not clean, because I really think they should continue protecting Dean Ambrose. My ideal scenario is that Ambrose gets himself DQ'ed when he goes too far. Rollins has pinned Ambrose too many times to where I think Ambrose really should look strong here.
Elimination Chamber match for the vacant Intercontinental Championship: King Barrett vs. Sheamus vs. R-Truth vs. Dolph Ziggler vs. Ryback vs. Rusev Rusev. The story here is with Rusev and Ziggler and I think that'll wind up taking priority. Neither Barrett nor Ziggler should have another meaningless IC Title run. Ryback is a close second, and I think they should give him some gold, but the stronger story probably wins out.
Elimination Chamber match for the Tag Team Championship: The New Day (c) vs. Cesaro & Tyson Kidd vs. The Lucha Dragons vs. The Ascension vs. Los Matadores vs. The Prime Time Players The New Day continues their run.
Champion vs. Champion: US Champion John Cena vs. NXT Champion Kevin Owens No finish. The worst ending here is Cena pinning Owens straight up. The second worst ending here is Owens pinning Cena straight up. Once Owens pins Cena, where is there for him to go? He's still the NXT Champion and they still have to deal with that.
The most intriguing thing here is that it doesn't really make sense for either guy to lose and there's no titles on the line. I think Sami Zayn or Samoa Joe interfere here and Cena comes out on top somehow. I'd be amazed if this program goes on more long term.
Triple Threat match for the Divas Championship: Nikki Bella (c) vs. Paige vs. Naomi Naomi.
I'm legit excited for this show here people. Even if
Owens vs Cena just seems like the coolest thing ever to me. I have no idea if it will live up to my expectations, but I believe that it will. I can't even remember the last time a match up intrigued me this much. Does Vince let his defender of everything Vince fall a guy who kind of represents a lot of things Vince has ignored for years? Maybe, I'm making it more than it is, but this match is going to kick all kinds of ass. Owens will win.
I've read that the Wildlife Fund for Nature (formerly the World Wildlife Fund....wait a minute, that means they're not even the WWF anymore!) situation has something to do with it. Not sure why the block letter logo is ok, though.
