King Sheamus vs. David "A List" Otunga: Josh Matthews comes out during the entrance and demands to know what Sheamus thinks of Mark Henry's comments that he should be in the Elimination Chamber. Sheamus makes a few fat jokes at Henry's expense and says he will shut Henry's mouth for him. That was really random. Otunga comes out and Mark Henry follows and attacks Sheamus and tries an avalanche but Sheamus boots him, Otunga tries to sneak in but gets knocked off the turnbuckle; Sheamus misses the Brogue Kick and Henry gets the World's Strongest Slam, twice. Otunga returns and stands over the beaten Sheamus and then Alberto Del Rio shows up (but you already knew that), what the Hell is going on here? 3.5/10 That had a random old school Attitude Era rapid-fire feel to it as the bookers appear to have ADD.
WWE Tag Team Champion Santino Marella vs. Alberto Del Rio: Del Rio rules, but you already knew that. He talks destiny to win the Rumble and win at WrestleMania. Santino Marella runs to the ring and they battle. Santino tosses him over the top rope and trombone celebrates. Del Rio attacks at the bell that has finally rung. Alberto tries a rope splash but Santino moves and Del Rio slides to the floor. Marella hammers away but posts himself and Del Rio backdrop suplexes him and hammerlocks the arm and drops knees on it. Del Rio applies an armlock; Del Rio misses the step-up enziguri and Santino hobbles around, into the split-legged dropdown and the hiptoss. Santino fires up the Cobra that misses and Del Rio drops the double knee arm breaker. Alberto immediately flips Santino into the cross-arm breaker. 2/10 Whew, that was rapid fire storyline, the bookers always seem to kick everything into hyper-drive on the Road to WrestleMania. Del Rio gets a squash win on Santino to tie up a Royal Rumble "loose end".
Vickie Guerrero and Dolph Ziggler arrive to tell us all Dolph Ziggler will enter the Elimination Chamber as the champion. I was wondering, you think it would help or hurt Ziggler to win the title on Friday and then lose it in the Chamber? John Cena interrupts. Dolph wonders why he is here; Cena says to shut them up. Cena gets a shot in on Christina Aguilera for butchering the National Anthem at the SuperBowl and offers an apology for the R-Truth Green Bay blunder. Brewer's commentator Bob Ueker gets a shout out! Cena makes some disparaging remarks about Vickie who grabs the microphone and gets booed out of the building. Vickie threatens to leave if the fans do not give her respect. Cena leads the fans in a "Go Pack, Go" chant to get them to leave; they actually do. John Cena now turns his attention to New Nexus and their injury rampage. Cena is their flaw because he is healthy. He threatens to kick all of their Elimination Chambers (PG for "ass"). 5.5/10 Usually I dislike silly Cena promos but I was entertained by this one.
John Cena vs. CM Punk main events us...
John Cena vs CM Punk. Cena with a low blow on Punk and gets disqualified. Nexus is out to surround the ring. Lawler hands Cena a chair and he nails Otunga and McGilicutty with it.
