WWE Elimination Chamber 2017 Results

Finally, our long national nightmare is over and Bray Wyatt is, at last, WWE World Champion.  In the climax to last night’s Elimination Chamber match and PPV, the Eater of Worlds eliminated then-WWE World Champion John Cena and former WWE World Champion AJ Styles to win the richest prize in Sports Entertainment.  Wyatt is now slated to face Royal Rumble Winner and tag team partner Randy Orton at WrestleMania.  Let’s run down the Chamber match and the rest of the evening of graps action.

Elimination Chamber Match for the WWE World Championship: Bray Wyatt defeated John Cena, AJ Styles, The Miz, Baron Corbin, & Dean Ambrose 

AJ Styles and John Cena started the match, packing a mini version of their Royal Rumble match into the first period of action before being joined by the third entrant, Dean Ambrose.  Ambrose wasted no time upping the craziness by being the first man of the evening to jump off of the roof of one of the pods in the redesigned Chamber.  Speaking of the “all-new” Chamber, the re-design made for some excellent camera angles during the broadcast including an excellent moment with Dean Ambrose and AJ Styles smashing each other into new clear portions of plexiglass above each pod.

Next into the Chamber was the eventual winner Bray Wyatt at #4, followed by Baron Corbin at #5.  Corbin had a dominant run in the match laying out Cena, Ambrose, Styles, & Wyatt before taunting and waiting on the Miz to enter the match at #6.  As the Miz demured, Dean Ambrose was able to roll up Corbin for the first elimination of the match. Corbin, upset with the elimination, raged against Dean Ambrose by slamming him into a pod and hitting the End of Days to set up Ambrose for the second elimination by the Miz. Corbin is now positioned either in the short-term or for WrestleMania as an Intercontinental Championship challenger.

With the Miz falling to John Cena as the third elimination we were down to the final three of Bray Wyatt, AJ Styles, & John Cena.  After a number of near-falls between Styles & Cena trading finishers, Cena attempted to finish off both men with a dive from atop a Chamber pod.  Seemingly in control, Cena attempted to AA Wyatt, only to be countered into Sister Abigail for the elimination.

Down to Wyatt & Styles, after an excellent sequence of back and forth moves, Styles attempted a Phenomenal Forearm but was caught and hit with a Sister Abigail for the victory.  After the match, Wyatt and now challenger Randy Orton stared each other down from their respective positions in the Chamber and on the stage.

Overall, the match was excellent and the retooled Chamber looked great on television.  Wyatt’s coronation as champion was strong and smartly done as he eliminated the current champion and the former long-time champion, making him the clear legitimate title holder.

AJ Styles retained the WWE World Championship with the aid of James Ellsworth in the main event of last night’s TLC event.

No Mercy Results – WWE

Luke Harper returned to distract Randy Orton long enough for Bray Wyatt to nail him with Sister Abigail and score a victory over the Viper in the show-closing match of No Mercy.  Why didn’t I call it the main event you ask? Because WWE opened last night’s event with the match labeled “The Main Event”, as AJ Styles defeated John Cena & Dean Ambrose by pinning Cena after a chair shot. Earlier in the match, Styles tapped to a double submission by Ambrose and Cena, causing the referee to restart the match. And in the other standout match of the evening, Dolph Ziggler captured his 5th Intercontinental Championship, keeping his career going in the process, against The Miz. Another solid show all around for the blue brand.

Lynch Pulled from No Mercy – Cageside Seats

Becky Lynch did not defend her Women’s Championship as scheduled due to an undisclosed medical reason that is not in-ring related and not serious. Her match with Alexa Bliss has been rescheduled for the November 8th Smackdown Live in Glasgow, Scotland.
