It just occurred to me how SDL's Fastlane is really just a drab event that's just there because it's February/March and SDL needs one more STOP before the real deal, the real feuds happen at WM, especially AJ Styles vs Shinsuke Nakamura. This got me thinking. Not much on the card seems spectacular, barring the fresh Orton vs Roode match, supposing Jinder isn't thrown in the mix. Shinsuke Nakamura is in all likelihood not even going to be there, or at best in a meaningless "gain momentum" match against Mojo Rawley. Now, what if the dual-branded PPVs were already ON!? Fastlane is instantly transformed into a must-see 4-match half of the Elimination Chamber(or call it what you will- personally I prefer No Way Out). Corbin and Ziggler have already been thrown in the WWE title feud and thus we have an awkward "fatal five way". Shinsuke is doing NOTHING. Randy Orton is rushed into the US title match/feud against Roode, which could've been saved for Wrestlemania. What IF:- Either AJ Styles defends against Ziggler, Sami Zayn, Kevin Owens, Shinsuke Nakamura, AND Randy Orton while Bobby Roode defends the US title against Corbin, or Jinder, or BOTH in a triple threat, OR AJ Styles defends against either Jinder or Corbin and Ziggler, Zayn, KO, Nakamura, Orton, Roode, and either of Jinder/Corbin enter the chamber to determine the number one contender for the WWE title at Wrestlemania. Add to this a women's match and a tag title match and we have a solid Elimination Chamber PPV, also including 4 of the best matches Raw has to offer, including the elimination chamber match. [Also, IMO, women participating in HIACs and Elimination Chambers is a big JOKE, even at the expense of me being labelled an MCP, a misogynist or whatever. (Stephanie might put forth her political and personal agenda in the name of WOMEN's revolution all she wants, but women are and will always be secondary, just a small ASPECT or wrestling, just like the cruiserweights). In my defense, I'll say that putting the cruiserweights in an Elimination Chamber is a big JOKE too, and they're MEN. ] So there's no question of there being more than TWO chamber matches. Granted, this would make the show 4 solid hours long, with some solid wrestling, and 1 hour pre-show. But would you rather not have ONE stop before wrestlemania whether you call it Fastlane, Elimination Chamber or whatever, than have two lacklustre shows which amount to a good 7-8 hours ? Personally, I'd have preferred an Elimination Chamber match involving the accumulated talents of Sami Zayn, KO, Ziggler, Nakamura, Styles and Orton. It's like the Smackdown SIX consisting of SHOW-STEALERS AND WRESTLERS. And even the Raw matchup seems to be intriguing AF with the inclusion of Reigns, Cena, Rollins, and Strowman. This is so much better than the times when we had to endure the likes or R-truth and Santino Marella in the chamber. Your thoughts?
