Predictable is fine, as long as it's logical. Elimination Chamber contained a lot of predictability and logical decisions.
One thing I took away from the event wasn't predictable, but is logical: WWE is going to put Daniel Bryan in the WWE World Heavyweight Championship match at WrestleMania, and he's going to win.
Batista beat Alberto Del Rio. This was predictable. Batista gets massive heat from the fans. Based on crowd reaction since his return, this was also predictable. Batista has become the logical choice to be first wrestler to be named the choice of the choiceless.
Randy Orton retained the WWE World Heavyweight Championship. Both predictable, as I know I didn't expect anyone else to go to WrestleMania as champion. It was logical: Orton is a really good heel at the peak of his in-ring game.
The wild card is a popular one: Daniel Bryan. The night ended with commentator Michael Cole nearly losing his voice selling how cheating Bryan out of title wins has gone on long enough. It seemed to cement that Bryan somehow will be inserted into the WWE title match at WrestleMania.
The fans are going to need a solid babyface to get behind. Having Bryan in the match could allow WWE to let Batista be a heel since he's drawing so much heat.
