4 subtle things you might have missed at the Elimination Chamber 2018
The penultimate stop on the Road to WrestleMania has come and gone. The Elimination Chamber PPV was filled with some exciting moments, many terrific spots and a few hard-to-watch moments (every moment Ronda Rousey had a mic in her hand). Overall it was not a bad show per se, but it seemed a tad underwhelming due to the highly predictable nature of all the matches on the card.
The PPV set the card for WrestleMania with Roman Reigns (vs Brock Lesner) and Alexa Bliss confirmed for the 'show of shows'. While the whole PPV had a lot of noteworthy moments, here are a few you might have missed.
#4 Not really a Frog Splash
With only three women left in the Women's Royal Rumble match, Bayley, Sasha Banks and Alexa Bliss fought it out for the Raw Women's Championship. Right after the spot when Banks was hung by her legs in the corner, Bayley starter attacking Sasha. When Bayley climbed the top of the turnbuckle, Alexa Bliss appeared and gave her a superplex off the top rope.
Right after that, Sasha Banks went to the top rope to supposedly execute a frog splash. On commentary, Michael Cole called the move and stated that it was a tribute to Sasha's hero, the late Eddie Guerrero. The only problem was, the aerial manoeuvre that Sasha executed looked more like a Big Splash and nothing like a Frog Splash. Whether it was a botch by Micheal Cole who mistook the move or whether Sasha just couldn't get enough height for a Frog Splash, we'll never know.
