I was thinking they'd just start with 3 guys, but having 2 guys stuck in one pod is hilarious and I hope they do it. They did that tag team Elimination chamber, so there's precedent for 2 peeps in a pod.

Also it's kind of crazy to picture Finn and Seth just murdering each other in close quarters once the bell rings since they're going to be future opponents anyway, then their turn comes up, the pod is unlocked and both their bodies just slump to the floor outside.

Shame that putting Miz and Braun in the same pod is completely off the table.

i like that WWE/Vince get real mad when the finish of some Raw is leaked/obvious and so they change it out of spite, but the Roman/Brock mania match has been glaringly obvious and dreaded for months and months and they're just gaining momentum

is ambrose going to be healthy by chamber-time? or joe? I expect someone to interfere and ruin it for someone else, but not in a fun roman-goes-away way.

Ambrose is out for most, if not all, of 2018. Joe's been pulled from all advertising through May.

Since Seth officially left the tag division, is the curse over? Or will all the pods explode putting everyone out with neck/knee injuries for 6 months.

i'd say "rip caring about wwe ppvs" but then i remembered i only watch them when i'm bored on sundays, and since 2011 the only match i cared about wasn't the main even anyway outside of that smackdown run, so, my abusive relationship with mainstream wrestling continues

Because Braun is the next incarnation of Kane/Big Show ie: the multitool that you can easily build up to be a monster of the week for dudes like Reigns because he's so naturally menacing but then you can flip the switch and have him do silly poo poo while he's not needed in the main event scene.

Sadly we all saw this coming but at least Braun will have a fairly well remembered 20 year career.

For what its worth, Asuka wrestled in the dark match main event last night. She murdered Alexa, but Nia then ran out and got Alexa DQed. Bayley, Banks, and Asuka then chased off Nia (and I assume Alexa).

I just realized Ronda going to Raw increases the likelihood that they're really doing a mixed tag vs Steph and HHH by like 1000%. That or she ends up in the title match with Alexa somehow and Asuka goes to SD to challenge Charlotte. Which would make the match with Nia even more loving pointless than it already is.

Dual brand pay per views eh? Guess IC title better get used to being the Television Title cause lol @ it getting past the preshow when there's 9 belts. So much for those women tag belts too. At least one good thing is Clash of Champions will actually mean something since every title being defended will be kinda instead of just "..........well yeah? They were last month and they will be next month".

Not gonna lie, I'm 100% down for Asuka vs Charlotte if its booked like an NXT match. I'd prefer Asuka vs Becky but this'll do. It does feel like it'd be "2 highest power level women going at it"

The brand split is the only reason the guys you actually like get any time.

Unless you like Roman.

I hope there's something for Sasha because she's killing it lately.
