WWE held its Elimination Chamber PPV today and it was arguably more enjoyable than last month's Royal Rumble event. One of the positives is that the show was much shorter than the 5 hour slog that was the Royal Rumble.

The event kicked off with the pre-show where Buddy Murphy successfully retained his Cruiserweight title against a feisty Akira Tozawa.

Towzawa surprisingly dominated the majority of the match, but Buddy Murphy won in the end using his finishing move. The match got a "this is awesome" chant from the crowd.

The first official match of the card was the Women's Tag Team Elimination Chamber match.

It was a long match, but every girl did their part really well. I initially thought the team of Nia Jax and Tamina would have won, but they got out in spectacular fashion.

The teams to finish the match were Sasha Banks and Bayley vs Sonya Deville and Mandy Rose.

The former team won in great fashion and I'm glad they finally got a big victory on PPV. They are now WWE's first women's tag team champions.

The next match was the Smackdown Tag Team titles with The Miz and Shane McMahon vs The Usos.

I thought this was going to be a boring match, but Shane McMahon made this match exciting thanks to his aerial acrobatics. Even The Miz performed well too.

The Usos got the surprising victory to become the new tag team champions. I feel WWE made them champions in order to prevent them from leaving the company. It will be interesting to see who they will face at WrestleMania 35.

The most boring match on the card was Finn Balor winning the Intercontinental Championship from Bobby Lashley and Lio Rush.

It was an average effort that should have been out on Raw instead of PPV. There's not much else I can say about it.

Another average match was Baron Corbin winning his NoDQ match against Braun Strowman. Predictably, Corbin had to cheat to win because he had the help from both Bobby Lashley and Drew McIntyre.

In order to make the PPV just over three hours long, WWE decided to cut short the Ronda Rousey vs Ruby Riott title match. Ronda Rousey squashed Ruby Riott and easily won in dominant fashion.

After that match ended, Becky Lynch came from the crowd to beat up both Ronda Rousey and Charlotte Flair. It's sure looking like there will be a triple threat for the WrestleMania 35 main event.

WWE Elimination Chamber 2019 ended with an excellent Chamber match for the WWE Title. Samoa Joe, Jeff Hardy, AJ Styles and Randy Orton all got out early so we saw a lengthy Kofi Kingston vs Daniel Bryan match.

I really wanted to see Kofi Kingston win the WWE Title, but sadly WWE did not pull the trigger on him tonight.

Daniel Bryan retained his title in a valiant effort. Hopefully WWE allows Kofi Kingston to become champion at WrestleMania 35 because he deserves it.

Overall, this year's Elimination Chamber PPV was good thanks to the two chamber matches. The rest of the card was forgettable though which is a bit of a shame.

Verdict: 7.0/10
