Elimination Chamber's return to the WWE calendar looked to be a predictable night of entertainment, but it seems WWE has turned everything on it's head.
The night started with The New Day being allowed to compete as a trio inside The Chamber and this allowed them to pick up the win to retain their titles, but shockingly The Ascension and The Prime Time Players both had good showings inside the structure during the Tag Team match.
Night of surprises
The first big shock of the night saw Nikki Bella retain her Divas Championship after it was rumoured that Naomi could finally be given a title run, but this wasn't to be as Nikki pinned Naomi after the Rack Attack.
John Cena vs Kevin Owens was perhaps the best match of the night as both men well and truly stepped up their game.
Owens even stole Cena's FU and tried to pin him with it, but it was a second pop up powerbomb that sealed the veteran's fate after a tremendous show of strength and agility from Owens. It was later announced that these two will once again collide in two weeks at Money in the Bank.
Bo Dallas vs Neville was the spectacle that the WWE Universe are used to seeing from the man that gravity forgot and he continued his great main roster form with another win via The Red Arrow.
Now, it was said that WWE had already leaked the fact that Sheamus was set to win the IC title last night, but once again WWE pulled a curveball that saw Ryback pick up the win inside the chamber and then be handed the title by former Champion Daniel Bryan.
The main event between Seth Rollins and Dean Ambrose was a showdown fans were all looking forward to, with the added stipulation that if Reigns got involved then Dean Ambrose would lose via DQ. The match was exactly as advertised with both men giving their all against their former friend. But the confusing part started when the referee was pushed into Ambrose and taken out.
Rollins went for the Phoenix Splash but missed and Ambrose turned this into Dirty Deeds to pin the champion and lift the title. The second official, who had come down to make the count, then discussed with the first and it was deemed that Ambrose had won but by disqualification so Seth retained his championship.
This led to a brawl and Roman Reigns ran out to superman punch Rollins and give the world title back to Dean who announced that he had won it so he was leaving with it before he and Roman decided "the champ was buying the beers" and left through the crowd.
It was also announced that Roman Reigns, Kofi Kingston, Dolph Ziggler, Sheamus, Neville and Randy Orton would compete for the Money in the Bank contract ladder match in two weeks time.
