In wrestling there are winners and losers. At the Elimination Chamber pay per view on Sunday, there were losers in their respective match. There were also wrestlers who scored the victory, but they weren’t winners in the eyes of fans.
Take a gander at the 5 real losers from the 2017 Elimination Chamber. Feel free to drop some comments down below, unless the list is perfect and everyone agrees.
WrestleNewz has Elimination Chamber play by play coverage online. WWE was the hyping the meeting between Nikki Bella and Natalya as the end of their angle. The timing made sense as WrestleMania is nearing and Nikki needs to get ready to possibly team with John Cena. Overall, the match okay; the ending is what ruined everything. Natalya has done the job so many times, so another loss wouldn’t matter. It seemed like WWE was going to make Alexa Bliss the top draw in SmackDown’s women division. She got the better of Becky Lynch and recently partnered with Mickie James. Then, Naomi comes out of nowhere and is now champion. Unless Bliss wins the rematch, she’ll probably be out of the title picture until after WrestleMania. Maybe even the spring or early summer months. I almost don’t know where to start with Dolph Ziggler. He goes from being IC Champion to nearly winning the WWE Championship at SummerSlam in August. Just a few months later and Ziggler has no direction. All he does is lose and then throws a temper tantrum like a baby. Even a sneak attack from a former world champion like Ziggler wasn’t enough to beat a pair of wrestlers who are slightly above jobbers status. Ever since Survivor Series, I’ve started to have more faith in Baron Corbin. They did the injury angle in November and then Corbin returned by taking out everyone in sight. He was holding his own inside the Chamber before a simple roll-up ended his dominance. It looks like Corbin will challenge Dean Ambrose for the IC Championship at WrestleMania, which might be a must win if he wants to stay relevant and in the title picture. The Usos literally handed The Ascension the SmackDown Tag Team Titles. Considering how it took The Ascension several minutes to enter tag team turmoil, it allowed American Alpha to regain their whereabouts and remain champions. WWE showed how little The Ascension mean to them; giving them the best spot in the match and yet they couldn’t pull off a victory with outside interference.
