So I believe all the matches are set. Smackdown kind of gets shafted at this PPV, as all they have is their Elimination Chamber match on the card, unless some sort of last minute match is added on Smackdown this week. However, it is likely to be the main event of the show. Anyway, on with my predictions

All or Nothing: Shawn Michaels vs. JBL
I've heard the rumblings of Shawn Michaels vs. The Undertaker at WM. As much as I would like that, I just don't see this months long storyline ending here. It doesn't seem right that Shawn gets out of his "contract" with JBL in his first attempt to do so. JBL wins here and this feud does indeed continue with JBL burying and humiliating Shawn for weeks leading to WM for the big blowoff there

No Holds Barred Match: Shane McMahon vs. Randy Orton
There's no way Shane wins here. Usually we could count on Shane to pull it out in his PPV matche and do some crazy stuff, but he's been so blown up in his attacks that I'm concerned about how he's going to do here. Anyway, he'll try to pull out some big memorable spot, but eventually Randy wins with the RKO and then punts him in the head after the match for good measure

ECW Title Match: Finlay vs. Jack Swagger
Swagger retains. I think after NWO, they begin the Tommy Dreamer journey where he gets the title shot at WrestleMania to reward him for his years and leading up to his eventual retirement.

World Title Elimination Chamber Match: John Cena vs. Chris Jericho vs. Rey Mysterio vs. Kofi Kingston vs. Mike Knox vs. Kane
Is the outcome of this match really in question? Cena retains after it comes down to just him and Jericho. Jericho continues his "I can't beat John Cena" streak

WWE Title Elimination Chamber Match: Edge vs. HHH vs. The Big Show vs. The Undertaker vs. Vladimir Kozlov vs. Jeff Hardy
This one is a little more difficult to predict. They seem to be setting up something between Edge and Big Show. No way Vladimir gets the title. UT doesn't need it and I think they might feed him Umaga at WM to continue his streak. Jeff vs. Matt at WrestleMania doesn't need the title. So where does this leave HHH? I don't want Edge to lose the title again after another short run with it, but if HHH doesn't win, where does that leave him for WM? I'm going to say that Edge retains leading up to a WM match with HHH. Possibly adding The Big Show making it a triple threat match. Either way....yes....going out on a limb and predicting Edge retains here.

The End

Shawn Michaels vs. JBL
I'll go for Shawn to win. I want to believe the HBK/Taker rumors, please.

Shane McMahon vs. Randy Orton
Randy Orton. Win the Rumble then lose to Shane? That would just be silly.

ECW Title Match: Finlay vs. Jack Swagger
Swagger to keep his little belt.

Raw Elimination Chamber Match: John Cena vs. Chris Jericho vs. Rey Mysterio vs. Kofi Kingston vs. Mike Knox vs. Kane
John Cena to win.

Smackdown! Elimination Chamber Match: Edge vs. HHH vs. The Big Show vs. The Undertaker vs. Vladimir Kozlov vs. Jeff Hardy
Edge retains with perhaps a little help from... Christian?

Shawn Michaels vs. JBL: It'd be interesting if JBL won and Shawn had to wrestling as Michael Hickenbottom, but that ain't happening, so I'll go HBK.

Shane McMahon vs. Randy Orton: Orton should squash him, but he won't. Still wins though.

Finlay vs. Jack Swagger, ECW Title: Swagger, but they keep it competitive.

Raw Elimination Chamber Match: Cena retains...I could see it coming down to him an Rey instead of Cena and Jericho too.

Smackdown Elimination Chamber: I'm tempted to say HHH wins, but I think they'll save it for Wrestlemania. Besides, Edge just won the title and they've been switching it too often.

JBL/Shawn-Shawn wins moving on to a higher profile Mania match, likely Taker

Orton/McMahon-Orton destroys Shane

Finlay/Swagger-SWAGGA wins. Then destroys Hornswoggle post match

Raw Chamber-Kofi Kingston in a SWERVE~! Not really. Cena retains

SD Chamber-Edge retains using the power of (ULTIMATE)opportunism

Hasn't been announced yet but I'll predict MVP takes the US Title off of Shelton. Can't seen there being only 5 matches

JBL wins, and the next step is both Bradshaw and Michaels in the MITB match at Wrestlemania, where HBK turns on JBL to win the briefcase for himself, and thus be able to get JBL to put Shawn's "freedom" on the line again.

Swagger over Finlay. Frankly, I thought this would be the ECW bout at Wrestlemania.

Orton over Shane via some type of springboard RKO.

Cena wins the Chamber.

Edge wins the Chamber via Matt and/or Christian-ference, setting up an Edge/Christian/Matt/Jeff ladder match for the belt at Wrestlemania. Undertaker goes on to face Umaga, Big Show faces Khali in a "let's get people from India to order Wrestlemania" match and HHH goes on to be Ric Flair's defender and/or Mickey Rourke's tag partner at Wrestlemania against Jericho and, oh, say, Kozlov.

I'd suspect we'll see a Benjamin/MVP match added to the card, so I'll pick Shelton to retain via shenanigans.

Shawn Michaels v. JBL
The plan seems to be to have an HBK/Undertaker match at Wrestlemania, meaning this feud needs to end. HBK wins convincingly and they'll waste no time in setting up his rivalry with UT with a post-match interview segment.
WINNER: Shawn Michaels

Jack Swagger v. Finlay
Finlay has devolved into nothing more than a comedy act and those don't make good champions. I don't think they take the belt off Swagger this soon.
WINNER: Jack Swagger

Randy Orton v. Shane McMahon
The incomparable geemoney may have hit the nail on the head when he called Stephanie joining the Legacy. She costs Shane the match here, leading to his head-punting and removal, leaving her the last McMahon standing.
WINNER: Randy Orton

Raw Elimination Chamber
I ask again, why is Kofi Kingston in this match? He shouldn't even be anywhere close to a main event right now. Anyway, Cena wins here, since there's no reason for him to lose.
WINNER: John Cena

SmackDown! Elimination Chamber
No reason to take the belt off Edge this soon. Both champions retaining in matches like this seems kind of odd, but there's no other direction for them to go. Edge wins, setting up a Triple Threat main with him, HHH, and Big Show at WM.

Ladies and gentlemen, the following public service message is brought to you by your friends from D-Generation X, who would like to remind each and every one of you that if you're not down with that, we've got two words for you...

Shawn Michaels vs. JBL: Shawn Michaels. There's a good setup for Michaels vs. Undertaker (which has to be the plan - has to be) regardless of which way this goes, so I'll go with the result I prefer. JBL didn't deserve to be in a high-profile match last year at WM, and he doesn't deserve to be in a high-profile match this year either, even as a second to Michaels against Taker. Shawn wins and dispatches this feud for good, and JBL is forced into the Money in the Bank match.

Shane McMahon vs. Randy Orton: Randy Orton. As a general rule, Shane always jobs big in his PPV appearances, and I expect that to hold here as well, especially since I expect Orton to job at WM (remember, he pinned Cena in the three-way last year - there's no way in hell he'll do it two straight years). The question is whether they do the swerve and have Stephanie join the Legacy, or whether they do the swerve-swerve and keep her babyface. I've been thinking heel turn for weeks now, but TJ Wilson's oddly timed appearance on ECW tonight swings me to the other side and has me make the call for DH Smith to do the run-in and make the difference for the Legacy.

Jack Swagger vs. Finlay: Jack Swagger. If it wasn't obvious before, ECW tonight certainly made it obvious - Swagger beats Finlay clean, and we head to a collision at WM between Swagger & Christian that I expect to be a great match (especially if they give it more than 10 seconds this year).

World Heavyweight Championship EC: John Cena. Chris Jericho is the only challenger in the match that's even remotely a threat, and with Jericho being built towards a match with Mickey Rourke or Steve Austin (and at this point, I'm betting on the latter) for weeks now, Cena retaining is obvious. The interesting part for me will be when Jericho starts and when he gets eliminated.

WWE Championship EC: Jeff Hardy. Most likely, this pick is going to be wrong, but the E has a chance to correct the egregious wrong they committed when they jobbed Jeff out and turned Matt at the Rumble, so I have to go with it. Logic would ordinarily say that they'd be condemned to face each other in a singles grudge match that would only be overshadowed by everything else, but if Jeff wins the title back here, they can put the Hardys into the prime position for WM that both of them have earned with their work in the last year. With Cena & Orton headlining the show, there's no reason that they can't book a four-way for the title with the Hardys, Edge & HHH that would have show-stealing potential. It only works, though, if Jeff gets the title back. Hopefully, the E does it.

(Holds; June 18, 2006)
While the switch from Cena to RVD should alleviate some complaints, the inevitability of the belt's return to Cena (note where Summerslam is this year) and the poor initial showing by the new ECW are enough to keep the indicator where it is for now. The pieces are in place, though, especially on RAW, for improvements to be made to the IWC's psyche in the near future.

I hope not, since Wrestlemania is on free TV in India, only on some delay.

JBL v Shawn Michaels: I can't see this feud ending just yet, so JBL wins. Even if the plan for Mania is Taker/Shawn, I don't see Shawn winning this, as that would turn him face again, and there is no way Undertaker will be booed by fans at Mania.

Shane McMahon v Randy Orton: This will be a fun garbage match, and Shane will probably get his one holy-shit bump, but no way Orton can lose here. Orton destroys Shane.

ECW Title: Jack Swagger v Finlay: Christian has already challenged the winner of this, so it's gotta go Swagger's way. Then they have Swagger/Christian at WM, and Tommy's title chase will come later.

Elimination Chamber: World Heavyweight Championship: With Jericho's continued build for a match at Mania with Rourke/Flair, Cena has no legitimate challenge here. Can you see Mike Knox, world champion? Or Kofi? No. Cena retains.

Elimination Chamber: WWE Championship: This will be the main event. Edge wins here to set up something with either Big Show, or Trips, or both.

Five matches seems too little, so I'm thinking they might add a Women's Title match or US Title Match. If it's Women's Title, Melina retains; if US Title, MVP wins.

Shawn Michaels vs. JBL- Shawn wins and finds out on Raw that JBL signed one more contract for him to face Undertaker at Mania setting up that match

Shane McMahon vs. Randy Orton- I really hope Orton wins but I think Shane has a chance...I will go with Orton

ECW Title Match: Finlay vs. Jack Swagger- Swagger retains, why didn't ECW get an elimination chamber match?

Raw Elimination Chamber Match: John Cena vs. Chris Jericho vs. Rey Mysterio vs. Kofi Kingston vs. Mike Knox vs. Kane- Cena/Orton seems to be the best match for Wrestlemania so I say Cena retains

Smackdown! Elimination Chamber Match: Edge vs. HHH vs. The Big Show vs. The Undertaker vs. Vladimir Kozlov vs. Jeff Hardy- I'm more interested in this match then the Raw one just because it's not as predictable. I will say Edge and HHH will get his title win at Mania

Seems a little short, but maybe they are just going to give the matches a good amount of time

Swagger vs. Dreamer vs. Mark Henry vs. Boogeyman vs. Finlay vs. Hornswoggle?

    Seems a little short, but maybe they are just going to give the matches a good amount of time

Yeah, you have to figure that the Chambers are going to get at least 35 minutes each including entrances, and two of the other three matches are going to be fairly long too. Last year they booked six matches and the Raw Elimination Chamber ended up having its time cut severely.

I'm going to go with:

-HBK/JBL: JBL. Unlike everyone else, I don't see Taker/HBK happening at WM 25. There's no bulidup to it. But this, even though it's been medicore at times, has enough gas IMO to go to WM. This match, if HBK wins, he gets only a years pay? Weak. I see JBL winning and 'owning' Michaels until he accepts a match where HBK puts his career on the line like Flair last year against JBL's entire fortune. It would make sense for HBK to win at WM in Texas in front of his home crowd, by beating JBL in an bigger fortune/career match than this one at NWO.

-Shane/Orton: Orton. It's bad enough to have your top heel get jumped by a non-wrestler on RAW (twice,too). It would be even worse if Orton has to sell Shane's stuff at NWO. It should be a squash, with Shane getting one and only one big spot. Otherwise, I want Randy to dominate with the help of Legacy until Stephanie come down... and turns on her brother. Otherwise, no way should Shane have the upper hand with Orton, even with weapons and no DQs at his disposal.

-Finlay/Swagger: Swagger. You got to build him up, so you might as well keep the title on him until WM. Then have him go against either Christian or Dreamer (perferably Dreamer for the retirement angle).

-Raw EC: Cena. Like anyone else has a shot.

-Smackdown EC: Everyone's picking Edge. But I'm going to choose HHH, just cause I get the feeling they are going to want to do a triple threat match between Trips/Jeff Hardy/Edge at WM.

Shane v. Orton: Orton. However, Shane will do at least one insane spot, which will hereafter be the only thing in this match replayed on Raw and discussed by the announcers.

Finlay v. Swagger: Swagger.

Raw Chamber: Cena.

Smackdown Chamber: Edge retaining seems the most likely choice in isolation, but are they really going to end both EC matches with the champions retaining? Nah. HHH wins.

HBK vs. JBL : JBL wins and goes through a month of humiliating Shawn, because the writers will find HBK winning to be too predictable, but they'll have no idea how to bring the angle to a logical end once JBL owns HBK.

Shane vs. Orton : Orton wins, and takes Shane out of the picture.

Swagger vs. Finlay : Jack Swagger retains. There's no good reason to put it on Finlay, if Christian's getting the shot at Mania.

RAW Elimination Chamber : Cena. There's just no way that Cena doesn't win.

SD Elimination Chamber : HHH. Everyone's thinking it has to be Edge, but I just have this horrible feeling that HHH wins, and then reveals he and Stephanie have been manipulating Orton so Stephanie (and post-draft, HHH too) can have full control of RAW. Orton challenges HHH at Mania, in order to keep trying to kick McMahons in the head.

Not a bad person if you get to know me.
