2/21/11 - Two returns, one expected, one surprising. Road to Wrestlemania is imminent

First off, Elimination Chamber results -

Edge def. Rey Mysterio, Kane, Drew McIntyre, Big Show, & Wade Barrett for the World Championship

John Cena def. CM Punk, John Morrison, Sheamus, Randy Orton, and R-Truth for the #1 Contendership for WWE Championship

The Miz def. Jerry "The King" Lawler for the WWE Championship

The Corre def. Santino Marella & Vladimir Koslov for the WWE Tag Team Championship

Alberto Del Rio def. Kofi Kingston

Edge is the first champion to retain his championship inside a Chamber match -

Congratulations to Edge for being the first champion to actually defend his championship sucessfully in the Elimination Chamber, and a loud "YEEES" for Christian making his long awaited return to save his former tag team partner from an Alberto Del Rio assault. Unfortunately I can't say the same for Kofi Kingston, who not only almost had his arm broken at the PPV, was then seriously demolished on RAW tonight when he attempted to get a measure of revenge against the #1 Contender for the Heavyweight Championship. Perhaps WWE will give us our long awaited Edge vs. Christian match at Wrestlemania in the form of a Triple Threat? IMO that makes this match that more exciting. '

Cena brings back Thuganomics for one night, wins and loses the WWE Tag Team Championship -

I hate to admit it, but it was a breath of fresh air to hear Thug Cena on the mic tonight and not the corny fruity pebbles guy that Rock clearly hit spot on last week during his promo. However, while teaming with the Miz, for some odd reason Miz scored a pinfall on Justin Gabriel when Heath Slater CLEARLY could have broken it up. However, the entire suspected set up in my eyes was smashed as Cena went for an AA on Gabriel in the rematch, Miz sliped in and hit his SCF on Cena and rolled out of the ring to allow Gabriel to score their newly won and lost championships back. And so, the mind games begin once again for Cena to basically get his ass kicked for the remaining weeks to Wrestlemania and pull a victory out of his ass and defeat the bad guy... (again)

Cole's Tasteless Promo -

First off, I don't even know her name, but for now I will say RIP "Queen Mother" Lawler. However, my expected finish to King's match last night did not come to fruitition. While I long suspected King and Cole would be fighting at Wrestlemania, the only question that needed to be answered was ... Why? So I honestly expected Cole to screw King last night, but instead Miz won clean. However tonight in what I consider an extremely tasteless comment, Cole insulted King's recently passed on mother and nearly got his teeth knocked out only to run like a "yellow bellied" pussy ironically while wearing a yellow shirt. Great to see King will most likely get his match, but the stip is still up in the air as Cole never officially accepted King's challenge

2-21-11 Has finally arrived -

And with it, came the Phenom, the Undertaker making his glorious return (again) to WWE, and this time appearing on RAW instead of Smackdown. Why? One may ask, well simple. Immediately after hitting the ring and doing his vintage hat removal, rolled eyes effect. The King of Kings Triple H made HIS glorious return to RAW and without even saying anything the two WWE main eventers stared at the Wrestlemania sign, aimed their signature taunts at one another and set us up for an obvious Taker vs. Triple H match at the Show of Shows.

While it was not Sting (who everyone, including myself had hoped for) Triple H's reasoning does make alot of sense, and with Shawn Michaels being present for the Hall of Fame, what's to stop him from showing up during this match?

I changed my format a little in how i reported tonight's blog entry, let me know what you think. And with that my friends enjoy your week.

(I apologize for not finishing last week's entry... won't happen again)
