WWE: Elimination Chamber 2010

01 Jun 2010

The Elimination Chamber is arguably WWE’s most brutal match, with six wrestlers battling it out to become the heavyweight champion. Each year sees two Elimination Chamber matches, one each for both Raw and Smackdown respectively.

The Raw Chamber match sees the WWE Champion Sheamus defend his belt against John Cena, Triple H, Kofi Kingston Ted Dibiase and Randy Orton.

Smackdown’s line-up was equallyimpressive, with the World Heavyweight Champion The Undertaker defending the gold against Chris Jericho, Rey Mysterio, CM Punk, R-Truth and John Morrison.

Despite all the star power, I felt both matches lacked the fast pace and cruelty that an Elimination Chamber match truly needs. The Smackdown match is slow-paced, with highlights few and far between. The Raw match fares a little better, but only sporadically did I witness the wrestlers utilise the cage itself.

There is not much in the way of special features. The Raw segment from the night after is included where Edge chooses his WrestleMania opponent, and there’s a video package portraying the feud between The Undertaker and Shawn Michaels. It may be a step down from previous events, but Elimination Chamber 2010 is still action-packed (in places) and full of surprises.
