The Chairshot Staff Picks - Elimination Chamber

Elimination Chamber is upon us tomorrow, so it’s time for picks! PC Tunney breaks down how the Staff picked. Who do you think will win?

Ladies and gentlemen welcome back to The Chairshot Staff Picks! My name is PC Tunney and I’m absolutely thrilled to be in the midst of the road to WrestleMania. This month’s WWE Network event (that’s what I’m calling them now lol) brings back one of the most impressive structures in wrestling history. Now speaking of history, we will be crowning the very first WWE women’s tag team champions. Twelve women will tell the first chapter for a new and long over due division. Let’s get to the picks which have been pretty darn good. The Chairshot staff as a whole is 28-9-1, that’s picking winners at a 75%+ rate over the last three network events.

2019 WWE Elimination Chamber

Cruiserweight Championship: Buddy Murphy(c) v Akira Tozowa

  • Abe Odeh – Murphy
  • Bradley Jay – Murphy
  • Carol Cassada – Murphy
  • David Levin – Murphy
  • Jason Schfletowski – Murphy
  • Mason Epeneter – Tozowa
  • Mathew Sarpraicone – Murphy
  • Rey Ca$h – Murphy
  • Robert Fernandes – Murphy
  • Sarah Hirsch – Murphy
  • Scott Mcleod – Murphy
  • Steve Cook – Murphy
  • Steven Mitchell – Tozowa
  • Tiffany Carter – Murphy
  • Miranda Morales – Murphy
  • DP – Murphy
  • Patrick O’Dowd – Murphy
  • Andrew Balaz – Murphy
  • Christopher Platt – Murphy
  • Greg DeMarco – Murphy

Tunney’s Take: It wouldn’t make sense here to cut Buddy Murphy’s title run short of WrestleMania. My pick is Buddy Murphy.

The Chairshot: 19-2 Buddy Murphy  #UseYourHead

Braun Strowman v Baron Corbin

  • Abe Odeh – Braun
  • Bradley Jay – Braun
  • Carol Cassada – Corbin
  • David Levin – Braun
  • Jason Schfletowski – Braun
  • Mason Epeneter – Braun
  • Mathew Sarpraicone – Braun
  • Rey Ca$h – Corbin
  • Robert Fernandes – Braun
  • Sarah Hirsch – Corbin
  • Scott Mcleod – Braun
  • Steve Cook – Braun
  • Steven Mitchell – Braun
  • Tiffany Carter – Corbin
  • Miranda Morales – Braun
  • DP – Corbin
  • Patrick O’Dowd – Braun
  • Andrew Balaz – Braun
  • Christopher Platt – Braun
  • Greg DeMarco -Braun

Tunney’s Take: This is a tricky one. I wouldn’t be surprised if Corbin wins here. Neither of these two have real storyline momentum of any kind so far on the road to WrestleMania. Regardless, I’m sticking with Vince using this spot to re-strengthen the dominance of Braun’s character. My pick is Braun Strowman.

The Chairshot: 16-5 Braun Strowman  #UseYourHead

Intercontinental Championship: Bobby Lashley(c) & Lio Rush v Finn Balor

  • Abe Odeh – Finn
  • Bradley Jay – Finn
  • Carol Cassada – LL
  • David Levin – LL
  • Jason Schfletowski – Finn
  • Mason Epeneter – LL
  • Mathew Sarpraicone – LL
  • Rey Ca$h – LL
  • Robert Fernandes – Finn
  • Sarah Hirsch – Finn
  • Scott Mcleod – LL
  • Steve Cook – LL
  • Steven Mitchell – Finn
  • Tiffany Carter – Finn
  • Miranda Morales – LL
  • DP – LL
  • Patrick O’Dowd – Finn
  • Andrew Balaz – LL
  • Christopher Platt – LL
  • Greg DeMarco – Finn

Tunney’s Take: The Intercontinental belt seems a perfect way to use Finn Balor on the rest of the road to and at WrestleMania. My pick is Finn Balor.

The Chairshot: 11-10 Lio and Lashley #UseYourHead

SmackDown Tag Team Championship: The MiZ & Shane McMahon(c) v The Usos

  • Abe Odeh – Usos
  • Bradley Jay – MM
  • Carol Cassada – MM
  • David Levin – MM
  • Jason Schfletowski – MM
  • Mason Epeneter – MM
  • Mathew Sarpraicone – MM
  • Rey Ca$h – Usos
  • Robert Fernandes – MM
  • Sarah Hirsch – MM
  • Scott Mcleod – Usos
  • Steve Cook – MM
  • Steven Mitchell – MM
  • Tiffany Carter – MM
  • Miranda Morales – MM
  • DP – Usos
  • Patrick O’Dowd – Usos
  • Andrew Balaz – MM
  • Christopher Platt – MM
  • Greg DeMarco – Usos

Tunney’s Take: I was positive that the Usos were taking the straps here, until the dust up with the law involving Jimmy and Naomi. I feel like original plans are still in place or the Usos would have already been removed from the match. My pick is the Usos.

The Chairshot: 14-7 MiZ & McMahon  #UseYourHead

RAW Women’s Championship: Ronda Rousey(c) v Ruby Riott

  • Abe Odeh – Ronda
  • Bradley Jay – Ronda
  • Carol Cassada – Ronda
  • David Levin – Ronda
  • Jason Schfletowski – Ronda
  • Mason Epeneter – Ronda
  • Mathew Sarpraicone – Ronda
  • Rey Ca$h – Ronda
  • Robert Fernandes – Ronda
  • Sarah Hirsch – Ronda
  • Scott Mcleod – Ronda
  • Steve Cook – Ronda
  • Steven Mitchell – Ronda
  • Tiffany Carter – Ronda
  • Miranda Morales – Ronda
  • DP – Ronda
  • Patrick O’Dowd – Ronda
  • Andrew Balaz – Ronda
  • Christopher Platt – Ronda
  • Greg DeMarco – Ronda

Tunney’s Take: This seems to be an easy pick, and it is. Now before this becomes consensus, think about this… Do Ronda, Charlotte and Becky really need a title at this point? I know we are talking the main event(last match) at Mania, but the feud these three women have created feels like enough. The reason I won’t go against the grain here, and no offense to Ruby, it would be a disservice to the title at this point. My pick is Ronda Rousey.

The Chairshot: 21-0 Ronda Rousey  #USEYOURHEAD

Woman’s Tag Team Championship Elimination Chamber: Sasha Banks & Bayley v Mandy Rose & Sonya Deville v Nia Jax & Tamina v Carmella & Naomi v Liv Morgan & Sarah Logan v The IIconics

  • Abe Odeh – Boss n Hug
  • Bradley Jay – Fire n Desire
  • Carol Cassada – Boss n Hug
  • David Levin – Fire n Desire
  • Jason Schfletowski – Riott Squad
  • Mason Epeneter – Nia n Tamina
  • Mathew Sarpraicone – Boss n Hug
  • Rey Ca$h – Nia n Tamina
  • Robert Fernandes – Fire n Desire
  • Sarah Hirsch -Boss n Hug
  • Scott Mcleod – IIconics
  • Steve Cook – Nia n Tamina
  • Steven Mitchell – Boss n Hug
  • Tiffany Carter – Nia n Tamina
  • Miranda Morales – Boss n Hug
  • DP – Boss n Hug
  • Patrick O’Dowd – Nia n Tamina
  • Andrew Balaz – IIconics
  • Christopher Platt – Boss n Hug
  • Greg DeMarco – Nia n Tamina

Tunney’s Take: The hardest decision of the show for me and the widely split picks from The Chairshot staff attest to just that. I’ve been shouting Boss n Hug for weeks now but my mind has been changed. My pick is the IIconics.

The Chairshot: 8 Boss n Hug, 6 Nia n Tamina, 3 Fire n Desire, 3 IIconics, 1 Riott Squad  #UseYourHead

WWE Championship Elimination Chamber: Daniel Bryan(c) v Kofi Kingston v Jeff Hardy v AJ Styles v Randy Orton v Samoa Joe

  • Abe Odeh – DB
  • Bradley Jay – DB
  • Carol Cassada – DB
  • David Levin – DB
  • Jason Schfletowski – DB
  • Mason Epeneter – Kofi
  • Mathew Sarpraicone – DB
  • Rey Ca$h – DB
  • Robert Fernandes – DB
  • Sarah Hirsch – DB
  • Scott Mcleod – DB
  • Steve Cook – DB
  • Steven Mitchell – DB
  • Tiffany Carter – DB
  • Miranda Morales – DB
  • DP – DB
  • Patrick O’Dowd – DB
  • Andrew Balaz – DB
  • Christopher Platt – DB
  • Greg DeMarco – DB

Tunney’s Take: More power(of positivity) to Mason if the pick of Kofi comes through! One thing my mind will not be changed on is that Daniel Bryan will be defending the WWE title at WrestleMania. My pick is Daniel Bryan.

The Chairshot: 20-1 Daniel Bryan  #UseYourHead
