8 Match Star Ratings For WWE Elimination Chamber 2020

God bless Daniel Bryan.

WWE

A lazy inconvenience of a pay-per-view WWE were under no obligation to promote, they simply, barely bothered!

Job done.

The last stop on the Road to WrestleMania...on Sundays, the build was weird, half-arsed, retconned: in many ways, the very existence of Elimination Chamber 2020 made WrestleMania 36 less special. The Street Profits and Seth Rollins and Murphy were scheduled to wrestle for the third time in 11 days, and yes the Street Profits are fun, Murphy deserves profile, and Seth Rollins is significantly better as a heel, but it's impossible to care because this numbing repetition is hardwired into the product for no reason beyond creative bankruptcy and the churn fulfilment requirement. Andrade Vs. Humberto Carrillo is always quite good, but it's impossible to care because this numbing repetition is hardwired into the product for no reason beyond creative bankruptcy and the churn fulfilment requirement.

WWE Creative Writers are paid $96,000. I should be able to repeat myself too.

Shayna Baszler announced herself as Becky Lynch's WrestleMania opponent via vampire bite, and then they put her in a match to formalise it. It's churlish to state that WWE is outright sh*t as a blanket statement, but this was literally awful storytelling because there was no drama to it whatsoever.

A three-on-one Handicap match? What?
