The Road to WrestleMania takes a detour on its second Pay-per-view event of three, the Elimination Chamber! This usually means one of my favorite WWE yearly events, but it most certainly means another issue of Wrestlezone's exclusive "Depth Chart" is on its way! Check for it Monday, before Raw goes on the air as we debut a brand new, painstakingly developed system, and if you'd still like to cast your vote you can do so HERE.
WWE Presents: The Elimination Chamber
WWE Divas Championship — Beth Phoenix (c) vs Tamina Snuka
As much as I don't want to "jinx" it, I've been really enjoying the use of WWE's Divas since the Royal Rumble. Kelly Kelly is rarely used, allowing newer (and technically better) contenders to prove their worth. Beth Phoenix has been picking up relatively clean wins and continues to be a dominant, fighting champion. Eve has been mixed up with the John Cena/Zack Ryder angle, taking her out of the title picture for the time being — personally I think she's doing a great job in that role. And finally, we have a legitimate challenger in Tamina Snuka. Will she take the gold tonight at the Elimination Chamber? Not likely, but Tamina has picked up some strong wins and looks better going into a Divas Championship match than all of Beth's other challengers in recent months. Take out this garbage with Natalya and it's almost like the WWE Divas have put together a watcheable division…
Prediction: Beth Phoenix retains. Kharma's a b****.
Ambulance Match — John Cena vs Kane
As much as Chris Cash seems to hate the Cena/Kane angle, I've really enjoyed it. It's cheezy as hell, but with the amount of "reality" in our current World title pictures, it's been nice to re-visit sports entertainment's more over-the-top roots. Kidnapping women, beating up crippled (over-rated) losers, and using them to breed hatred in WWE's resident Super Hero works for Kane, and it works for Cena too! It's classic comic book material actually: remember when Green Goblin kidnapped Mary Jane and a bus full of innocent strangers, forcing Spiderman to choose between the two? Parallels abound… In the film, our webbed wall-crawler was able to save both parties, but will Cena be able to do the same? More importantly, will Cena swing from the rafters and/or make out with Eve some more?
Prediction: John Cena beats Kane. John Cena doesn't turn heel. We start the build towards the Rock at WrestleMania and we're all a little disappointed at what "could have been".
