This year’s Elimination Chamber was a great show that saw Sami Zayn challenge for the Undisputed Universal Championship, Bobby Lashley take on Brock Lesnar and two Elimination Chamber matches.
It’s now time for my 5 things we learnt article. If you haven’t read my previous 5 things we learnt articles, this is how it works. After each RAW, Smackdown and WWE Premium Live Event, I will release an article which is basically just the five big things that happened on the show and my opinion on it.
Hopefully I will be able to do these articles for AEW as well, but there is only so much wrestling I can watch each week so, at the moment I will only be making these articles for WWE.
So, here are 5 things we learnt from Elimination Chamber.
5. Brock Lesnar vs Bobby Lashley was disappointing
We are starting off the article in a negative way, as Bobby Lashley’s match with Brock Lesnar did not live up to my expectations. The match started off well with both wrestlers trading finishers, then before you know it, Bobby gets Brock in the Hurt Lock and then Lesnar gets himself disqualified.
This now seems to be the end of this rivalry and it is probably for the best, the build up to this particular match has been entertaining, so it would’ve been good if they ended the storyline on a high note. But they didn’t, which is annoying because we have had three matches between these two and they were all disappointing.
Lesnar and Lashley has been a dream match for a while now, but unfortunately their rivalry went on for too long and hopefully both wrestlers move onto different storylines in the lead up to Wrestlemania. It seems like Lashley will be moving onto Bray Wyatt now and unlike some fans, I’m curious to see where this storyline goes.
