Could we see The Viper with the Championship once again?

And yet another pay-per-view is upon us! It seems like Royal Rumble was just yesterday, and yet Elimination Chamber has sneaked up from behind and delivered an RKO to us all. The card is a weird one, with no Universal Championship, SmackDown Women's Championship or US title match, surprisingly. But WWE generally gets their pay-per-views right, when they try.

One of the key ingredients to any pay-per-view is the element of surprise. This is because WWE is a soap opera and the key is to make the WWE Universe tune in for the fallout episode too. WWE would be wise to book a few surprises at the pay-per-view.

When you have a surprising twist or turn take place, the ratings shoot up and a lot more eyes generally are glued to the product. Let me suggest a few surprises that could potentially take place during the course of the show.

Let me know your thoughts and views about the same in the comments.


#5 Lashley turns on Lio Rush after Balor pins him to become Intercontinental Champion

The setup looks like something like this is almost guaranteed

WWE obviously wants Bobby Lashley to look strong and bulletproof because he's a human brick wall, to put it quite bluntly. And therefore, they've inserted Lio Rush into the mix in a handicap match to probably have him take the fall when Finn Balor becomes the Intercontinental Champion.

One has to assume that Bobby Lashley will not take the idea of losing to Balor well. Especially if Balor pins Lio Rush to do it. And therefore, Rush may have to face the fury of Lashley in the coming weeks.

Rush could potentially turn babyface and feud with Lashley. It would be a big step up for him and could be a filler feud until Lashley moves on to someone else.
