Not since Orton & Edge vs. HBK & HHH at New Year’s Revolution has a match fallen apart like last night’s IC Title Elimination Chamber.
So King Barrett throws Dolph Ziggler into Mark Henry’s UNBREAKABLE PEXIGLASS THAT THEY USE IN ARMOURED VEHICLES MAGGLE causing it to fall off, leaving Henry to stand there with his thumb up his arse before deciding to join the match as JBL asks out loud if this is legal before getting shouted at via headset.
It became obvious Henry had jumped his cue as the match fell apart so badly that Ziggler had to resort to shouting orders at everyone like Sgt. Hartman to get something resembling a match together.
Oh and then Sheamus’ door stuck. This was all this match needed, because it was a planned spot that managed to look like a fuck-up because everybody was doing very convincing impressions of people who had no idea what was going on. It looked like Sheamus blocked the lock with his necklace to get the advantage (which makes sense, let everyone kill each other and then get what’s left) but when he pulled the necklace out, all we got from the commentators said was JBL going ”Oh he fixed it!”
Not even they knew what was happening. Or maybe Sheamus saw what was happening outside and went ”er my door doesn’t work. Aye that’s it.”
I feel bad putting Dolph’s spot-calling in Botchamania because at least somebody was trying to fix the match. Unlike Mark Henry who stood there watching Barrett & Ziggler wrestle right in front of him and broke up a pin-fall attempt in an elimination match just because he was looking for something to do.
Oh and R-Truth pinned King Barrett.
It’s the current favourite for Most Botched Match Of The Year and God help us if anything beats it.
