....and now we have two new World Champions: Triple H and Edge. Edge lost in the first elimination chamber match and later attacked Kofi Kingston before the other EC, thus replacing him. Triple H, as we all know, is married to Stephanie McMahon, so he can be world champ whenever he wants. My thoughts: BORING! Seriously, they are overdoing it with Edge's gimmick. Why couldn't he retain in his chamber match, thus the WWE title wouldn't have changed hands at the 4th consecutive PPV? Also, Triple H has been there so many times already. How exactly is that fresh? I don't mind that Cena lost and to think the WWE would give me what I want-a title reign for Kane-would be unthinkable! Oh yeah, he got pinned by Mysterio. Dangit, quit jobbing out Kane to guys that are probably 5'7"! Yeah, I know it's unrealistic to think WWE would actually use Kane the way he used to be. This does not get me excited for Wrestlemania, because all the stuff they're doing is so bland. Thoughts?

I have watched highlights of No Way Out and I think it was a great PPV. It will probably be the second best PPV behind of course Wrestlemania. The 2 elimination chambers were great, especially the RAW one. Edge was eliminated so quickly by Jeff Hardy in the first one and Triple H winning the title could mean that he will stay on Smackdown and feud with the Undertaker or maybe he will move to Raw and feud with Orton or others and Edge can bring his belt back to Smackdown. Maybe Edge will now move back to Raw and could feud with Cena or Jericho. Many questions will be answered tonight on Raw. I think they should of giving the WWE title to The Undertaker but I think they are waiting for Wrestlemania to do that. How many times have Triple H been champion already? 13? Cena getting eliminated so early was a good change and no one expected it. I agree that Rey pinning Kane was stupid. Kane used to be a monster that would take the Undertaker 3 tombstones to beat him and now he is jobbing to the likes of Kofi Kingston and Rey Mysterio. Also, I thought Mike Knox was impressive in the Elimination Chamber, maybe he could be getting a push in the future.

Well, I am a bit surprised by the results. (Not entirely in a good way.) I guess I shouldn't have been too surprised by the outcome of the Smackdown EC. I'll still watch Raw tonight, though. Usually, this time of the year, the overall product is at its' best, but my initial reaction to the results I read was that WWE was resorting to its' predictable ways. Yes, this is Triple H's 13th reign. I guess he'll be breaking Flair's record.

I totally agree. Personally I would have had Taker win, considering he hasnt had the WWE title sine 97 i think, and I think the WWE Championship should stay on SD as it hasnt been there since 05...but a HHH and Undertaker feud would be great, havent seen that since WM17 and that!! anyway I dont mind edge being champ, but he should stick to RAW then, mabye a a fresh feud wit someone other than cena and HHH should loose it at WM mabye to Taker again. Anyway Kane woulde have been a tidy and surprising choice, I wonder why they didnt do it, I reckon there should be some sort of online petition, basically getting WWE to nortice how much how much we want to see Kane as champ.

Actually, Taker held the Undisputed championship in 2002. (Which is now the spinner belt.) Well, if Taker won, we know the championship wouldn't change hands at Wrestlemania. (Since Taker will likely retire undefeated at WM.) I would've chosen Vladimir Kozlov or Umaga as possible opponents. I don't know if he's still rumored to face Umaga or what now. Triple H and Undertaker did have a match on Smackdown not too long ago. Yeah, seeing them feud would definitely be fresher than Edge vs. Cena or Triple H vs. Orton. As far as Kane goes, if there's a petition online, I'd definitely sign it. I sometimes wonder if WWE always listens to their fans, though.
