You know ... that's a damn fine card you've got there if I do say so myself ...
Something I've always wondered about the elimination chamber ... Will we ever see a Smackdown main event involving the chamber or is this something that Bischoff has "exclusive rights" to on RAW?
Took the words right out of my mouth. A good long 9 match card, with just about all major players on each show covered. At least 3 men could concievably come out of the Elim Chamber w/ the title, and the same could be said for the U.S. Title match. Also, Mysterio/Noble and Angle/Eddie could both be absolutely awesome.
I'd doubt that too, if they weren't coming off a WrestleMania with two fatal fourway tag title matches. If they see this as a big show, and from the way they've been promoting it it looks like they do, I wouldn't be surprised to see a match or two designed to get more guys on the show. Two six way matches might be a bit much, though. It certainly would be for my tastes. Other than that it looks pretty good, except for one thing...
No Regal is a problem with that card, especially with his run-in and beatdown of HHH on RAW. Another real possibility besides the Elim Chamber would be the big elimination tag match that many people have speculated about.
I don't know if Vince can do it since it was a Dusty creation, but I'd say SummerSlam would be PERFECT for a WarGames match. Maybe they could work around it by not doing the whole double ring thing and putting it inside the Hell In The Cell? War In The Cell?? Evolution vs. Benoit/Edge/Eugene/Regal

RAW MATCHES Announced by Jim Ross & Jerry Lawler World Heavyweight Championship Elimination Chamber: Chris Benoit [c] vs. Triple H vs. Chris Jericho vs. Christian vs. Batista vs. Eugene WWE Intercontinental Championship: Edge [c] vs. Randy Orton vs. Shelton Benjamin Grudge Match: Kane vs. Shawn Michaels World Tag Team Championship: La Resistance [c] vs. Rhyno & Tajiri WWE Women's Championship: Trish Stratus [c] vs. Victoria
Christian, HBK & Benjamin return...albeit two of the three are in matches where they're protected from too much workrate too soon after their injuries. And heck, HBK was just resting up anyhow, so his match against Kane would work well. Also, in the event they go for the rumored Elimination Tag, it'll be Evolution's four against Benoit, Eugene, Jericho and Benjamin (to protect Benjamin, again). If they want the title on the line, expect whoever pins Benoit to get the title...if that's the case. I see them holding off the Benoit/HHH title switch until Unforgiven, if then.

I figure HHH will come in as the world heavyweight champ, Eugene turns full face during it. It wouldn't shock me if Foley or Bret come out to challenge Flair before SummerSlam, so thats why there is an * on the six-man tag
SMACKDOWN MATCHES WWE Championship: John Layfield [c] vs. The Undertaker -JBL retains
Eddie Guerrero vs. Kurt Angle -Angle wins... Schmozz ending with Angle winning, resulting in the feud continuing through the next few months & giving Angle some steam.
WWE Tag Team Championship: Paul London & Billy Kidman [c] vs. The Dudley Boyz -London & Kidman retain via DQ
WWE United States Championship: John Cena vs. Kenzo Suzuki vs. Rene Dupree vs. Booker T -Cena retains
WWE Cruiserweight Championship: Rey Mysterio vs. Spike Dudley -Spike wins... thanks to Dudleys interfering on his behalf, but he doesn't find out until after.
RAW MATCHES World Heavyweight Championship Elimination Chamber: Chris Benoit [c] vs. Triple H vs. Chris Jericho vs. Eugene vs. Batista vs. Ric Flair -Chris Benoit wins
WWE Intercontinental Championship: Edge [c] vs. Randy Orton -Orton wins... when Shelton's interference backfires & costs Edge the match. Post-match, Edge & Shelton talk, Edge blows it off, they shake hands, & Edge blindsides Shelton.
Kane vs. Matt Hardy -Kane finally wins a PPV match
World Tag Team Championship: La Resistance [c] vs. Rhyno & Tajiri -La Rez retains... in a cheap win, which results in more matches down the road between the two teams. (Or in a perfect world, Rhyno lays total waste to La Rez in such a convincing manner as part of a big push for he and Tajiri)
WWE Women's Championship: Trish Stratus [c] vs. Stacy -Trish retains
"--HHH will not be wrestling Chris Benoit at SummerSlam."
-From the latest Wob update. Hoo boy, questions abound. First, this would seem to suggest that H is indeed getting the belt back this Monday, because I honestly can't see him being paired off into a midcard feud whilst Benoit defends against Orton or something. But then could the two still be competing in some kind of multi-person cluster match? Let the speculation commence...
Once upon a time in China, some believe, around the year one double-ought three, head priest of the White Lotus Clan, Pai Mei was walking down the road, contemplating whatever it is that a man of Pai Mei's infinite power contemplates - which is another way of saying "who knows" - when a Shaolin monk appeared, traveling in the opposite direction. As the monk and the priest crossed paths, Pai Mei, in a practically unfathomable display of generosity, gave the monk the slightest of nods. The nod was not returned. Now was it the intention of the Shaolin monk to insult Pai Mei or did he just fail to see the generous social gesture? The motives of the monk remain unknown. What is known, are the consequences. The next morning Pai Mei appeared at the Shaolin Temple and demanded of the Temple's head abbot that he offer Pai Mei his neck to repay the insult. The Abbot at first tried to console Pai Mei, only to find Pai Mei was inconsolable. So began the massacre of the Shaolin Temple and all 60 of the monks inside at the fists of the White Lotus. And so began the legend of Pai Mei's five point palm exploding heart technique.
I saw the same Eugene correlation as soon as I read the release. However, unlike Eugene, they've managed to make this gimmick completely run-of-the-mill by the end of the first promo. Hassan's going to be just another foreign heel.
