PPV Fusion: Elimination Chamber 2013
The 2013 WWE Elimination Chamber Pay-Per-View starts with a video hyping the matches to take place later on, followed by a video recapping the events involving The Big Show and Alberto Del Rio two weeks ago on SmackDown, and Alberto Del Rio taking on The Big Show for the World Heavyweight Championship to kick off the PPV.
The match sees Del Rio get the victory and retain his title, when he applies the cross-armbreaker to Show, forcing him to tap out.
After a video hyping the upcoming release of the “GI Joe: Retaliation” movie starring The Rock, and a video recapping the events involving The Miz and Antonio Cesaro six nights ago on Monday Night Raw, Antonio Cesaro is pitted against The Miz for the United States Championship.
The match sees Cesaro get the victory and retain his title, when Cesaro convinces the referee to ring the bell and disqualify The Miz after an accidental low-blow caused by Cesaro’s attempt at countering.
Afterwards, The Miz apparently decides that he might as well make his disqualification worth it, and hits Cesaro with a blatantly intentional low-blow.
After an interaction backstage involving Kane and Daniel Bryan, and a video hyping the Elimination Chamber match concept, Kane, Daniel Bryan, Chris Jericho, Randy Orton, Jack Swagger (accompanied by Zeb Colter), and Mark Henry go against each other in an Elimination Chamber match to determine the Number One Contender to the World Heavyweight Championship.
Before the match takes place however, Jack Swagger and Zeb Colter complain about what the USA has supposedly become, and say that together they will make things right and that a “Real American” will set things straight and win one for the good guys, marking the beginning of a “Jack Swagger America”.
The match does indeed see Swagger get the victory to become the Number One Contender, when he immediately follows up Orton’s elimination of Jericho by rolling up Orton for the 3-count.
After a video hyping that tickets to WrestleMania are available now, and a video recapping the events involving The Shield, John Cena, Sheamus, and Ryback that led to the upcoming match, The Shield take on John Cena Sheamus, and Ryback in a Six-Man Tag Team match.
The match sees The Shield get the victory, when Roman Reigns hits Ryback with a spear to interrupt his attempt at hitting the Shell-Shock, allowing Seth Rollins to fall into the cover for the 3-count.
Next, Dolph Ziggler’s music hits and he makes his way to the ring with AJ Lee and Big E Langston, where he says that he isn’t even booked. He talks about how he bets that Jack Swagger thinks he is guaranteed the World Heavyweight Championship, but instead it is the Money In The Bank contract with guarantees it.
He brags about stealing the show every night, until he is interrupted by Booker T’s music hitting and him making his way out onto the stage. He says that Ziggler is wrong and he knows a man who can do anything that Ziggler can do and a little bit more, with said man being Ziggler’s opponent right now.
The man Booker is talking about is quickly revealed as Kofi Kingston, and the match sees Ziggler get the victory, when he hits Kingston with the Zig-Zag for the 3-count. Afterwards, Big E Langston enters the ring and attacks Kingston, leaving him down on the mat (prompting a “one more time” chant from the crowd) before exiting it again.
After a video recapping the Pre-Show match between the team of Tensai and “Funkasaurus” Brodus Clay and “Team Rhodes Scholars” Cody Rhodes and Damien Sandow, and an interaction backstage involving Tensai, Clay, Cameron, and Naomi, in which Tensai comments with his luck, the tattoo on his face is likely a sushi menu rather than Japanese words of honour, Tamina Snuka is pitted against Kaitlyn for the Divas Championship.
The match sees Kaitlyn get the victory and retain her title, when she hits Tamina with a spear for the 3-count.
After a video hyping that WrestleMania is forty-nine days away, and a video recapping the events involving CM Punk and The Rock that led to the upcoming match, CM Punk (accompanied by Paul Heyman) goes against The Rock for the WWE Championship in a match that has the stipulations of The Rock losing his title if he is disqualified or counted out.
The match sees The Rock get the victory and retain his title, when he avoids Punk’s attempt to hit him with the WWE Championship belt, consequently making Punk hit Heyman with it instead, and hits Punk with a Rock Bottom for the 3-count.
The Rock celebrates in the ring while it is officially announced that John Cena will be facing The Rock for the WWE Championship at WrestleMania, as Elimination Chamber goes off the air.
