Title This: 2014 WWE Elimination Chamber Reaction “WWE Did The Right Thing”

Titus O'Neil defeated Darren Young

Reaction: This was definitely a match that had NO steam or intrigue to it. Was it their fault? This feud has been spotlighted more on Smackdown, which immediately hurts their chances of being extremely important on a Pay-Per-View that is stacked with interesting talent. I like Titus O'Neil, I really do, but I think this was too soon to push him on a PPV match. He was not even given the right opponent. If Prime Time Players were former champions or even a tag team that was on high importance, I would definitely understand this match right now. We saw both guys hit one another hard and Titus finished him off with Clash of the Titus. It dragged on a little too long and was not interesting from the very beginning. Like I said, I do not blame them for not being able to give us a great match. Sometimes, the writers need to be patient with guys who have main event talent.

What's Next: I can easily see Titus on the WrestleMania card. The question is where? He is a prime candidate for a guy who would be put into a Money in the Bank Ladder Match, if this was four years ago. WrestleMania needs some sort of match for mid card guys who are close to being regulars on Raw. I can see him potentially going after Big E, but that is not my first choice for him. Young will be relegated back to jobbing to other guys and used sporadically.

Score: 3/10

AJ Lee defeated Cameron

elimination chamber

Reaction: A match that is unannounced takes place between a few of the main events of the night. AJ Lee defeats Cameron in a sloppy contest. THIS is why the Divas division needs Emma, Summer Rae, Paige and others to step up very quickly. AJ Lee simply has no competition left and no fresh feuds. Naomi's injury comes at the worst possible time because I do think she was in line of taking the championship off of the waist of AJ. Nonetheless, Lee picks up a DQ win when Tamina accidentally kicks her and Tamina ends up knocking out Cameron. The end was odd and extremely uncomfortable.

What's Next: AJ Lee needs competition. Who is the competition for her? A Divas Championship at WrestleMania should consist of her vs. Naomi or her vs. a brand new Diva. We have seen enough of her facing the combination of Brie, Nikki, Cameron, Natalya. Do not be shocked if Tamina gets that chance. That could be a nice twist. She might be the most overlooked Diva in the company.

Score: 2/10
