W: The Miz via pin @ 0:27 (NR)
The crowd boos as The Miz celebrates!!
Overall Rating: 6.5/10
What an odd show. Both chamber matches were really good with the Smackdown one being great! The Smackdown chamber match is the only thing I'd go out of the way to watch. The rest of the event was more about moments (Miz cashing in, Edge spearing Reigns to make their WM match official). The undercard had nothing memorable. It appears Riddle captured the US title so Lashley can move up the card. The women's tag and kickoff show were forgettable. The show was about 2 1/2 hours which is along the lines of a Takeover and that's not a bad thing. It'll be interesting to see how the WWE Championship picture shapes up heading into WrestleMania.
