Final Thoughts: Decent show for the most part. The Smackdown Elimination Chamber match was great. Edge being the first eliminated made you think something was up. The No Holds Barred Match was good I guess. The match was way too slow but the storytelling made up for the quality. ECW Championship match was so boring and didn’t do anything for the show whatsoever. JBL/HBK was alright. I thought the pay-off should’ve been at WrestleMania, but thank God it wasn’t (See: Undertaker vs. Shawn Michaels.) I hated how Edge got into the Chamber match by beating down Kofi and that’s it. If it’s that easy, why don’t we see more guys doing beatdowns before the match to get into the Chamber? Stupid booking. The match itself was still damn good where Edge became the new World Heavyweight Champion. There’s really no point in watching the whole show. Just watch the Chamber matches or buy the Satan’s Prison DVD.
