    WWE Elimination Chamber 2017 Preview and Predictions

    This is a show.

    Giving their thoughts and predictions on what to expect from the PPV are members of the site @JoeyOnEarth, @TimWelcomed and @TomBlargh.

    Mojo Rawley vs. Curt Hawkins on the kick-off

    Joey:

    I don’t have to watch the kick-off show. Perfect!

    (Can someone alert me if they team together to throw Zack Ryder and his wheelchair off the stage?)

    Interest Level: 0/10
    Prediction: Mojo does a 90s dance and Curt Hawkins makes weird faces.

    Tim:

    Well, I don’t know what we did to deserve this but I guess I’ll make it through the punishment. I forget Hawkins is on the roster constantly which is probably for the best. This being on the card at all shows how lackluster the Smackdown roster really is.

    Interest Level: 0/10
    Prediction: Mojo Rawley wins but we lose.

    Tom:

    I thought they were a tag team!

    Interest Level: 1/10
    Prediction: Mojo Rawley wins.

    Randy Orton vs. Luke Harper

    Joey:

    Great addition to the card. Randy Orton is the one of the lamest human beings in wrestling, but he has decent enough matches. Luke Harper is awesome. Given the lack of depth on this card, these two could steal the show.

    Interest Level: 7/10
    Prediction: Randy Orton wins.

    Tim:

    This is far more exciting to me than Orton vs Wyatt. Orton can have good matches when he’s in the ring with the right opponent and it just so happens that Luke Harper is great. I am loving that he’s finally getting a little more focus because he’s the most talented of the whole Wyatt Family and Smackdown’s roster could really use him breaking out. He’s just a roadblock for Orton here but I’m sure he’ll come out of this match looking better than ever.

    Interest Level: 6/10
    Prediction: “The Viper” Randy Orton wins.

    Tom:

    This could be a neat little match – I like Harper a lot though I’m not sure exactly what the future holds for him. I assume he’ll be back to being Bray’s sweaty boyfriend in time for him to feud with Orton, but it will be interesting to see how he’ll do in a fairly high-profile match.

    Interest Level: 7/10
    Prediction: Randy Orton wins.

    Apollo Crews and Kalisto vs. Dolph Ziggler

    Joey:

    What a mess. Apollo Crews and Kalisto deserve better. If they throw Dolph Ziggler off the stage, these two could be the next top stars for Smackdown. Hopefully WWE doesn’t blow this opportunity.

    Interest Level: 1/10
    Prediction: Apollo Crews and Kalisto win.

    Tim:

    We all know what needs to happen here but I’ll say it anyway. Dolph Ziggler needs to lose a handicapped match to these two great talents. If there’s one person I want to see not overcome the odds it’s Ziggler. I think it is going to happen. If we all believe this will be the outcome we can will it into existence.

    Interest Level: 2 (for my boys Kalisto and Apollo Crews)/10
    Prediction: Apollo Crews and Kalisto win.

    Tom:

    What? It’s a handicap match? What is going on in Smackdown? I haven’t really been paying attention lately and this match’s existence makes me think that’s probably for the best. Anyway, not sure why this is happening, seems like a bad idea.

    Interest Level: 3/10
    Prediction: Dolph Ziggler wins.
