– We’re told The Rock wasn’t given a script for his show-closing promo on this week’s WWE Raw. Basically he was just “let go” to sell the pay-per-view and this is why there was some rambling. There were finishes talked about at Raw regarding the WWE Championship match at Elimination Chamber.
– Vince McMahon is currently on a “manager kick” which is evident in Paul Heyman, AJ Lee, Ricardo Rodriguez and now Zeb Colter. We’re told some of this has to do with Triple H’s old school wrestling approach but we’re told Vince won’t use the term manager.
– WWE officials continue to go back and forth regarding a second Elimination Chamber match at the pay-per-view on Sunday. As of show time on Monday the plan was for Ryback, Sheamus & John Cena vs. The Shield to remain a 6-man tag team match which was why the gimmick wasn’t announced on Raw. This could still change before Sunday but was off as of Monday.
– We heard some were accusing the writers of booking Alberto Del Rio vs. Big Show backwards with two Last Man Stand bouts then a regular singles match at Elimination Chamber as a blowoff.
– Damien Sandow finds himself lost in the Wrestlemania 29 shuffle and his push could be delayed until the pay-per-view or after.
– There was some talk about making Antonio Cesaro vs. The Miz for the WWE United States Championship a late addition to the Elimination Chamber card like it was last month.
