My ideas to build Smackdown’s Elimination Chamber

ELIMINATION CHAMBER
With the Elimination Chamber PPV on the horizon, the WWE needs to make 2 Elimination Chamber matches. One for CM Punk’s championship was already made on Monday Night RAW. With Smackdown on Friday, the WWE needs to make one for Daniel Bryan’s heavyweight title. Sure the Smackdown tapings have happened, but I’m not one to read spoilers.

So to make the Smackdown Elimination Chamber match, the obvious idea would be to assign people. Let’s say Orton vs Wade vs Cody vs Bryan vs Big Show vs Henry. That’s obvious… but that doesn’t make for a watchable Smackdown show. So I came up with the idea of qualifying matches…

THE OBVIOUS
Orton vs Drew McIntyre

Wade vs Ted DiBiase
Henry vs Ezekiel Jackson
Big Show vs Jinder Mahaul
Cody vs Sin Cara (or Gabriel or Kane since technically he is or was a Smackdown guy)

The winners would be obvious except for the last match. So you could couple it with the idea of a speed record. The man with the quickest match gets the #6 entrance in the Elimination Chamber. The slowest victory will be the #1 entrant and so on. The champion would randomly enter. Some people would have a problem with just feeding midcarders to main eventers. That is not captivating television, so let’s reorder everything…

THE LESS OBVIOUS
Henry vs Big Show

Wade vs Orton
Cody vs Sin Cara
Jinder Mahaul vs Ezekiel Jackson
Ted DiBiase vs Drew McIntyre

Who would win those matches… would you watch that Smackdown? You could couple that with my time = entrant idea.

But does anyone really want to see a chamber match with Orton vs Henry vs Cody vs Ezekiel vs Dibiase vs Bryan? Probably not, so then we book injuries and reworkings. Here we go:

SMACKDOWN WEEK 1
ORTON over WADE to get into the chamber match or WADE over ORTON
BIG SHOW over HENRY to get into the chamber match
CODY over SIN CARA to get into the chamber match
EZEKIEL over JINDER to get into the chamber match or JINDER over EZEKIEL
DIBIASE over DREW to get into the chamber match

SMACKDOWN WEEK 2
WADE over EZEKIEL. Wade cheats to win and beats down Zeke who then gets a comeback and Wade bails.
Or ORTON over JINDER with Orton going over clean and there’s nothing Jinder can do. Orton has his arms raised and that’s it. Jinder is angry…
HENRY asks GM TEDDY LONG to get into the chamber to get his title back. Teddy shoots him down… so instead Henry asks Daniel Bryan for a title shot. Daniel refuses he’s just had a match or he’s injured or something, but Henry doesn’t get a match. Henry knows what it will take to get into the match…

SMACKDOWN WEEK 3
WADE over EZEKIEL
because Zeke wants to crush Wade and avenge the loss… well Wade doesn’t want a match, he has already beaten Zeke. Zeke has something Wade wants… and that’s a shot in the chamber match.
Or ORTON over JINDER because Jinder is so angry at Orton, he demands a rematch! Orton already beat Jinder, but if Jinder is so confident that he can beat Orton again… he should put up his entrance in the Elimination Chamber. Jinder refuses… Teddy Long comes out and says he likes that idea and he makes the matches around here, so tonight it is Orton vs Jinder for the last slot.
HENRY over DIBIASE and injures Dibiase in the process. Mark Henry lobbies to get in the match since DiBiase is injured and all… That’s a shame… If Henry thinks he’s getting into the chamber he’s right… but as #1 so he can take a beating from every Smackdown superstar. Good luck Mr. Henry!

ELIMINATION CHAMBER
ELIMINATION CHAMBER MATCH >> WADE vs HENRY vs ORTON vs BIG SHOW vs RHODES vs BRYAN

IN CONCLUSION
There could be several tweaks like Orton and Rhodes shots are in jeapordy. You could have someone go over Daniel Bryan in a non-title match to get a spot in the chamber, but I’d rather not have a champion lose any matches unless its for the belt.

    Whatever the WWE do decide to do, for both EC matches, they need ALL their talent going into the chamber winners. Like don’t face them off against each other for example. I didn’t see the official SD one either, I don’t read spoilers either.

      The winners thing, yeah I’d rather have 6 winners going into the match, but after week 1 you can use the next 2 weeks before the chamber PPV to build up those 6 guys with wins or at least 6 matches and 6 promos (3 and 3 for each show). Also its horrible to have CM Punk and Y2J in the chamber match together if they are having a match at WrestleMania. If they are in a match tother the safe money bet to build to Mania would be for Y2J to go over and win the title and have Punk chase… but for a month? eh…
