ELIMINATION CHAMBER 2012
Spoilers

1.[WWE TITLE ELIMINATION CHAMBER MATCH]CM PUNK VS KOFI KINGSTON VS CHRIS JERICHO VS DOLPH ZIGGLER VS THE MIZ VS R TRUTH-the Raw Chamber match kicks things off for us which was a surprise for me. This is usually the main event on this PPV with the Smackdown Chamber match earlier in the night. Any way Punk and Kofi starts us out and do battle until Dolph enters, he usually steals the show. Since he usually does that I was excited to have him and Punk in the same match. Ziggler takes a lot of bumps on the steel during this match. Kofi of course shows of his athletic ability in this match going all over the Chamber. R-Truth enters next and lights up Ziggler as soon as he gets out. Next up is The Miz who really has a strong showing here in this match taking it to everyone. Jericho is the last to enter the match but is eliminated the craziest. When it came down to just two it was Punk and Miz, and they did a great job. This could very well be the best match on the card, and it started the event.

2.[DIVAS TITLE]BETH PHOENIX VS TAMINA SNUKA-first off I have to ask, why did the champion come out first? I hate that and it seems it only happens when the heel is champ. Any way this is not a bad match and I really like Beth so I enjoyed it. It was your average Divas match but not bad. Beth keeps the belt after the Glam Slam, also it was cool to see a Superfly fly again.

Here we have a brief little thing with John Laurinaitis coming out with Otunga announcing that he should be GM of Raw and Smackdown. He is then joined in the ring by Alberto Del Rio, Mark Henry, and Christian as they wanted to show their support for him.

3.[WORLD TITLE ELIMINATION CHAMBER MATCH]DANIEL BRYAN VS GREAT KHALI VS BIG SHOW VSSANTINO MARELLA VS WADE BARRETT VS CODY RHODES-now all night they were showing Santino training for this match since he was a big underdog but sentimental favorite. Show and Barrett kick things off here and gives a brawl until Cody enters the match. Show was waiting for him and punishes him in front of Bryan. Our hero Santino is released from his pod next and is on fire until he also runs into Show. The same can be said for our next entrant as well, Khali. He is dominating until he runs into Big Show, except it is the other way around. That leaves the one man Show was really waiting for, Bryan. The only thing is he doesn't wait, Show breaks into the pod from the top and from there he puts it on Bryan. From there we get a good battle from everybody but the story here is the last two guys, Santino and Bryan. The crowd wanted Santino to win this so bad, they were really into Santino making it to the last two. Honestly they wanted it so bad it started to rub off on me even though I knew better. In the end the fairy tale ending was not to be, Bryan retains his title.

4.[US TITLE]JACK SWAGGER VS JUSTIN GABRIEL-this match was added at the event after a backstage segment, which why did they already have their gear on? Come on WWE you can at least make it look like it really was added that moment. Any way the match was pretty good and was good enough to pass some of the time for the PPV. Could have been much better had they been given more time.

[AMBULANCE MATCH]JOHN CENA VS KANE-this match was all about Kane trying to get Cena to "embrace the hate". To be honest I didn't hate this feud like some others have told me they did but it could have been so much better. In fact this would have been the perfect angle for Cena to become a heel if they were to ever do that. Any way this is a really entertaining match as these kinds always are. Even the casual fan will enjoy this match with all the brawling and weapons being used. The match is barely in the ring at all before they move to the outside and all up and down the aisle. When they do enter the ring again it is still more of a brawl than a wrestling match. Of course for this type of match it should be more of a fight than anything else. Even though this feud ending up going nowhere really this was still a good match with Cena coming out on top of course.

Over all this was a pretty good event with some good matches with none bad in my opinion. Both Chamber matches were good with the Raw one being the best of the two and of the night. There were many highlight reel moment throughout the night. Not the best Chamber event ever but to be honest I think this event should be done away with. This and the "Hell in the Cell" events should go, those matches should be special matches saved for big time feuds every once in a while. Same can be said for the "Money in the Bank" event, I liked it better as a "Wrestlemania thing. Still these matches always deliver memorable moments so what do I know. Also there is an interview with Bryan as a special feature here.
