9 Things WWE Got Right At Elimination Chamber 2017

The Era of Wyatt has begun.

Bray Wytt Elimination Chamber WWE Champion

Since the return of the WWE brand split in July 2016, SmackDown Live! has put together an impressively consistent catalogue of pay-per-view events, and Shane McMahon & co's final effort before WrestleMania 33 will be viewed as another solid effort by the blue crew.

After years of stop-start booking, big losses and empty words, Bray Wyatt has finally ascended to the top of the mountain. The Eater of Worlds has captured his first singles title in WWE and what a way to begin, outlasting five other men to win the Elimination Chamber match and WWE Championship in the process.

Elimination Chamber wasn't a blow away show by any stretch of the imagination, but then it did not need to be. WrestleMania 33 is the goal and this show served to further set up that night just seven weeks away.

What did WWE get right last night? Here are nine green ticks for the blue brand.


Born in the middle of Wales in the middle of the 1980's, John can't quite remember when he started watching wrestling but he has a terrible feeling that Dino Bravo was involved. Now living in Prague, John spends most of his time trying to work out how Tomohiro Ishii still stands upright. His favourite wrestler of all time is Dean Malenko, but really it is Repo Man. He is the author of 'An Illustrated History of Slavic Misery', the best book about the Slavic people that you haven't yet read. You can get that and others from www.poshlostbooks.com.
