WWE Elimination Chamber Kickoff Show
The WWE Elimination Chamber Kickoff Show begins with the panel, which consists of Renee Young, Byron Saxton, Corey Graves and Booker T talking about tonight’s show.
From there, we are told that Rusev, who is scheduled for tonight’s Intercontinental Championship Elimination Chamber match, is no longer going to be competing. We aren’t told who his replacement will be, just that Rusev will not be part of the match.
We then go to a quick “social media lounge” segment, straight to a backstage segment with Kane and The New Day.
Stardust vs. Zack Ryder
After some more typical pre-show stuff, we shoot to the announce table where we are joined by Michael Cole, Jerry Lawler and JBL. It looks like it’s not time for a MizTV segment, instead, we’re getting an impromptu match.
Both Stardust and Zack Ryder make their way to the ring. We’re getting a bonus one-on-one match here on the Elimination Chamber Kickoff Show.
The bell sounds and here we go. Early on, it doesn’t take long before Stardust is in control of the action. Stardust dominates for a while until Ryder gets in his series of offensive moves.
Ryder hits the Broski Boot and sets Stardust up for more, although Stardust, out of nowhere, hits his new finisher, “The Queens Crossbow,” on Ryder for the 1-2-3.
Social Media Lounge With Lana
After the match, we shoot to Tom Phillips in the social media lounge. He is joined by Lana, who WWE allowed fans to use social media to send her questions.
Phillips brings up Rusev’s injury and the fact that he’s out of his scheduled Chamber match tonight. She says she’s not talking to him, but she heard he’s injured. She doesn’t want to say anything further.
Lana is then asked about Dolph Ziggler. She says he’s cute and makes her laugh and he sends her snapshot pictures. She also talks about the fans now finally treating her well. She basically says she was mean in the past but she’ll now try to be understanding in the future.
MizTV With Daniel Bryan
After the social media lounge segment with Lana, we go to the ring where Summer Rae does a big overly-kiss-ass style introduction for her “The Marine 4” co-star, The Miz.
The Miz makes his way to the ring in a goofy-ass outfit, which the announcers make fun of. Miz brags on the mic and does a big speech about how he’s “finally back.” The announcers joke that most didn’t even know he was gone.
Miz then introduces a clip of Daniel Bryan giving up the Intercontinental Championship so the new person who holds the title can be a fighting champion. After the clip, Miz and Bryan take their seats for the MizTV segment.
After Miz asks his first question, he interrupts Bryan before he can answer it. He goes on and on about how he feels bad for Bryan, but he feels like the victim because he put so much time into Bryan to “make him a star” when he was his mentor during their NXT days years ago.
Bryan then guarantees fans his career inside the ring isn’t over. He talks about what he’s been doing while he’s been out of action, such as writing a book. Miz then goes on a giant heel-rant, mocking and putting down Bryan in every way he can think of.
Miz keeps babbling until finally Bryan heard enough. Bryan yells “Miz …shut up!” He says the reason he is here tonight is to present the winner of tonight’s I-C title Elimination Chamber match with the belt. He then guarantees all of his fans again that he isn’t done wrestling.
Bryan and Miz go at it again until finally Miz annoys Bryan enough again that he cuts him off and tells him that MizTV is boring. He says he knew it would be so he came prepared. He says knowing it would be, he brought “this.”
With that said, Bryan snaps his finger and then Macho Man Randy Savage’s music plays. Out comes Macho Mandow and Axelmania. They come out dressed up like Savage and Hogan and beat down Miz. Hulk Hogan’s music plays as Axelmania and Mandow play to the crowd. Bryan tries to leave while they celebrate, but they stop him and have him celebrate with them.
Backstage: Eden With Dean Ambrose & Roman Reigns
Backstage, Eden introduces Dean Ambrose. Ambrose walks in and Eden asks him if he feels any extra pressure tonight. Ambrose says he doesn’t, because he has everything to gain and nothing to lose. He then says on the other hand, he feels a lot of pressure in his guts. He says it’s bubbling hatred he feels for The Authority. He says he can relieve that by punching Seth Rollins in the face and taking his WWE World Heavyweight Championship.
As Ambrose continues to talk, in walks Roman Reigns. Reigns asks if he got the ice or the cold ones. Ambrose says he didn’t. Reigns laughs and says “good thing I already did.” Reigns tells Ambrose to take care of Rollins and he’ll take care of the rest.
WWE Elimination Chamber 2015
The 2015 WWE Elimination Chamber special event opens with the usual bad-ass video package highlighting all of the key storylines heading into tonight’s show.
WWE Tag-Team Championship
(Elimination Chamber Match)
– The Prime Time Players vs. Los Matadores vs. Tyson Kidd & Cesaro vs. The New Day (c) vs. The Ascension vs. The Lucha Dragons
After the opening video package, we shoot into the ring, which is covered by the Elimination Chamber. Lilian Garcia does a lengthy introduction/explanation of the first match, which will be the WWE Tag-Team Championship Elimination Chamber match.
Out first come the Prime Time Players. As they make their way to the ring, the announcers try to better explain and elaborate on what the rules are for this first-ever WWE Tag-Team Championship Elimination Chamber match. Titus O’Neil and Darren Young are locked into their pod.
From there, the Los Matadores, accompanied by El Torito, make their way to the ring. As they make their way to the ring, we are introduced to tonight’s Spanish commentary team, who quickly introduce themselves at ringside. El Torito is helped on top of the pod, where the Los Matadores are locked inside.
Next out are Tyson Kidd and Cesaro, who make their way to the ring accompanied by Natalya. Those two are locked in a pod as well.
The WWE Tag-Team Champions — The New Day — make their way out next. All three members come out clapping. And as announced during the Kickoff Show by Kane, all three members of the team will be part of this match. All three guys are locked in their pod.
Finally, the last two teams, both of which will be starting out the match inside the ring, make their way out. First out are Konnor and Viktor, The Ascension. Finally, The Lucha Dragons — Kalisto and Sin Cara make their way out.
The bell sounds and finally, here we go. The Lucha Dragons dominate the action early on, flying all over the place and taking it to both members of The Ascension. Eventually, the size and power advantage takes over the speed and quickness of The Lucha Dragons.
Kalisto climbs on top of a pod but gets his foot stuck in the chains. The Ascension climb to the top rope and beat up Kalisto. Sin Cara, on the other side of the ring on top of a pod, hits a huge flip off of the top and lands on top of one of The Ascension members. Kalisto tries to follow up, but The New Day yank his foot from inside the pod and now he’s stuck up there again.
The clock ticks down and it’s time for our next team to enter the match. The buzzer sounds and it’s Tyson Kidd and Cesaro. Both guys exit their pod, enter the ring and immediately take it to both the Lucha Dragons and The Ascension.
Once they establish control of the three guys in the ring, Cesaro climbs to the top rope and free’s Kalisto from having his foot stuck in the pod beneath him.. Cesaro, from the top rope, hits a giant superplex on Kalisto, who is on top of the pod. Both guys crash down to the mat below. The fans in Texas pop huge for that spot.
On commentary, Jerry Lawler actually refers to Michael Cole as “J.R.” Cole doesn’t let it go for a while. Meanwhile, the action continues in the ring, with Kalisto climbing all over the fencing like Spiderman. He climbs back on top of a pod, this time it’s the Prime Time Players pod. Now he’s trying to climb to the roof of the cage upside down.
As Kalisto continues his Spiderman act, the clock ticks down. Now the Los Matadores exit their pod and enter the cage. From the top of their pod, El Torito hits a flying splash onto several of the guys in the ring. Kalisto is now swinging from the roof of the Chamber. Literally, he is on the very tip-top of the cage holding on and occassionally swinging.
Finally, Kalisto swings his body back-and-forth and lets go. Once he does, everyone is in the ring right in the middle and Kalisto comes crashing down on all of the guys. The fans break out into a “This Is Awesome” chant as the action continues in the ring.
Now El Torito is climbing to the roof. He lets go but is caught and slammed. The Ascension hits their finisher on Los Matadores. 1-2-3. Los Matadores are eliminated from the match. Seconds later, they hit their finisher on the Lucha Dragons. 1-2-3. Now the Lucha Dragons are eliminated.
The clock starts ticking down again and this time it’s the Prime Time Players who are let loose. Titus O’Nel and Darren Young come exploding out of their pod and the team is immediately beat down by The Ascension.
The action continues, now with Kidd and Cesaro getting involved, and out of nowhere The Ascension are pinned and eliminated. Now it’s down to Kidd and Cesaro and O’Neil and Young, with all three members of The New Day waiting to be let out of their pod.
The fans in Texas break out into another “This Is Awesome” chant as Kidd and Cesaro seem to be taking control of the action. It isn’t long, however, both all guys of both teams are down on the mat trying to get back to their feet. The fans try and clap and cheer to encourage the guys to get back to their feet.
As the guys slowly start to make their way back to their feet, the clock ticks down, the buzzer sounds and in comes the WWE Tag-Team Champions — The New Day.
All three members, Big E., Kofi Kingston and Xavier Woods immediately enter the ring and go to work on their opponents. All pods are clear now as the fans chant “New Day …sucks! New Day …sucks!”
Cesaro and Kidd momentarily beat all five guys down, both PTP members and all three New Day members. They lock Xavier Woods back in the pod so now things are even, with all three remaining teams only having two members involved in the match.
Cesaro gets a hold of Kingston and does the big Cesaro Swing to him, which the fans in Corpus Christi seemed to enjoy. Unfortunately, as soon as Cesaro is done with the swing, Darren Young rolls him up and pins him. Cesaro and Kidd are eliminated.
The only two teams left in the match now are the Prime Time Players and The New Day. Big E. gets Xavier Woods out of the pod, so now we’re down to a three-on-two advantage in favor of the tag-champs. The New Day are easily dominating the action due to the numbers game.
The New Day continue to dominate, squeezing O’Neil’s face through the fencing until finally Darren Young freaks out and in Superman mode, goes berzerk on all three members of New Day, including slamming Big E. through one of the pods.
O’Neil is back up now and he and Young are double-teaming any member of The New Day that approaches them. Finally, the numbers game is too much, as The New Day seems to be in control again. The finish comes when the three team up on O’Neil after taking out Young. Kingston hits his Trouble In Paradise kick while O’Neil was distracted. 1-2-3. The New Day retains.
Winners and STILL WWE Tag-Team Champions: The New Day
Backstage: Dolph Ziggler & Lana
After recapping Rusev’s injury with a video package, we shoot backstage to see Dolph Ziggler warming up when Lana approaches him. She wishes him good luck. Lana says tonight isn’t about Rusev or making him jealous — it’s about him. Ziggler says when he is champ and he comes back here, maybe it will be about “us.” He says he’s going to do what he does better than anyone else tonight.
WWE Divas Championship
– Nikki Bella (c) vs. Naomi vs. Paige
From the backstage segment, we go back live inside the arena where Nikki Bella’s music hits. The WWE Divas Champion makes her way to the ring for her triple-threat title defense.
Out next is his first of two challengers in this match, Naomi. Naomi makes her way to the ring as the commentary team promotes some stuff. Finally, out last is the third and final opponent in this match, Paige.
The announcers point out that Tamina Snuka isn’t in Naomi’s corner and Brie Bella isn’t in Nikki Bella’s corner tonight because everyone is banned from ringside for this triple-threat Divas title match.
The bell sounds and here we go. Early on, Paige and Naomi take out Bella and they are left in the ring alone to battle it out. Paige dominates the action from the start. She remains in control until Nikki re-enters the scene.
Nikki misses a big kick off the top rope and is then slammed hard on the floor. She is getting knocked around pretty good in this one. Meanwhile, Naomi is in control of Paige in the ring while Nikki is down and out on the floor. They seem to be keeping Nikki out of the match so that Paige and Naomi can get things going.
Bella is back in the ring and the three try to do a stack-job-slam in the corner off the top rope, however they mess it up a bit. Nikki tries pinning both girls but both of them kick out.
Nikki goes for the Rack Attack on Paige but Naomi interferes with the Rear View. Paige then super kicks Naomi out of the ring. Paige goes for her submission finisher on Nikki but Naomi breaks it up. Finally, Nikki hits the Rack Attack on Naomi. 1-2-3. Bella retains.
Winner and STILL WWE Divas Champion: Nikki Bella
Kevin Owens vs. John Cena
After the Divas match and some WWE Network programming plugs, the pre-match video package airs for John Cena vs. Kevin Owens.
Following the video package, Lilian Garcia introduces the NXT Champion Kevin Owens. Owens makes his way to the ring to a nice pop. Once his music dies down, the “Fight Owens Fight!” chants start up.
Out next is Owens’ opponent for tonight, longtime WWE United States Champion John Cena. Cena’s music hits and out he comes to a mixed-bag reaction as usual. The fans in Corpus Christi quickly switch from mixed-bag reaction to “John Cena sucks!” singing chants.
The bell sounds and here we go with our “champion vs. champion” match. Straight from the word “go,” Owens dominates the action. Owens easily handles Cena for several minutes, hitting him with every move you can think of, including many I’m not even sure what to call.
Cena finally starts fighting back. The two get into a punching exchange, which Owens wins. Owens re-establishes dominance, however now Cena is making his real “comeback.”
Owens is dealing with Cena now, as Cena is on fire. Cena is hitting Owens with every move in the playbook until out of nowhere Owens, hits his Pop-Up Powerbomb finisher on Cena. He immediately covers him and of course, Cena kicks out of Owens’ finisher in his first PPV match on the main roster. Super-Cena at his finest.
Owens climbs to the top rope and Cena tries to stop him, but Owens knocks him off. Cena gets back to the ropes and now both guys are up there. The fans break out into a loud, dueling “Let’s Go Cena / Cena Sucks!” dueling chant.
Thankfully, Cena hits his Attitude Adjustment on Owens, but Owens kicks out, so at least Owens got to kick out of Cena’s finisher as well.
Owens goes to do the Five Knuckle Shuffle, but Cena trips him down and locks him in the STF. Owens nears the ropes, so Cena yanks him back. As he does, Owens kicks him off of him and nails him with the Attitude Adjustment. Cena kicks out at two and a half.
As both guys recover, Cena goes to the middle rope and hits a tornado DDT on Owens for a near fall. Both guys go for their finisher but each guy avoids it. Owens hits a big slam on Cena for a two count. Owens is throwing a fit now because Cena keeps kicking out.
Both guys get into a punching exchange again until this time, Cena springboards off the middle rope and hits the Springboard Stunner. Owens, however, kicks out at two. Now Cena is throwing a fit because Owens keeps kicking out.
Both guys go to the middle or top rope in one corner and in a crazy reversal I’m not even sure how to explain, Owens somehow turns a Cena move attempt into a suplex off the top in mid-air for a near fall. That was pretty insane. Owens is again upset that Cena managed to kick out at two.
Owens waits for Cena to get up, but when he runs at him, Cena blasts him with a big clothesline. Back on their feet, out of nowhere, Owens hits Cena with a Pop Up Powerbomb. 1-2-3. Owens wins.
Winner: Kevin Owens
After The Match
After the match, Owens says he said on RAW anyone who doesn’t know him isn’t worth his time. He says everyone now knows who Kevin Owens is. He says he’s the man who started a fight with John Cena — but he’s also the man who finished that fight.
Owens goes on to say that now that he’s beaten Cena, he’s got some veteran advice for him — it’s time for Cena to go. He says Cena’s time is up and his time is now, because “the champ is here.” His music hits as he raises his NXT title up in the air.
Bo Dallas vs. Neville
After a quick check-in with the Kickoff Show panel, Bo Dallas’ music plays and out he comes. Dallas cuts a promo on his way to the ring. He talks about how he tried to be nice to Neville and once Neville denied him, he left Dallas no choice but to force him to “Bo-Lieve.”
With that said, Neville’s music hits and out he comes. “The Man That Gravity Forgot” makes his way to the ring as the announcers try to tell the story of the match, as this one, much like the Divas match, didn’t get a big video highlight package.
The bell sounds and the fans in Corpus Christi immediately breaks out into “NXT! NXT!” chants. The announcers put over how this is a big night for NXT considering this match and what Kevin Owens just did to John Cena in the previous match.
Meanwhile, in the ring, Dallas is struggling with Neville, who is in control of the action in the early going. Neville flips across the ring and knocks Dallas down with a kick. Dallas tries rolling out to the floor while Neville is on the top rope, so Neville simply changes gears and hits a big impromptu moonsault onto Dallas on the floor.
Back in the ring, Neville controls Dallas on the mat with a headlock as replays of his moonsault are shown. As Neville continues to punish Dallas, Dallas drops to his knees and begs off, telling Neville that he’s doing this “for him.” Neville doesn’t buy it, so he continues the beatdown.
As Neville continues to control the action, Dallas finally cuts him short and takes over the offense in the match. Dallas tries to control Neville, but it doesn’t take long before Neville is back to dominating the action.
Finally, the finish comes when Dallas goes for the running Bo-Dog, only for Neville to counter, knock him down and go to the top rope. Neville hits the Red Arrow and scores the pinfall victory.
Backstage: Dean Ambrose, Roman Reigns & Triple H
Backstage we see Dean Ambrose taping up his wrists talking to Roman Reigns. We can’t hear what they’re saying until Triple H walks up. HHH mentions that he heard Reigns say he wants to be in Ambrose’s corner tonight. Triple H informs Reigns that he doesn’t have the authority to insert himself into a WWE World Heavyweight Championship match.
“The Game” goes on to explain to Reigns that Kane will be out there in an official capacity, however if Reigns gets involved, Ambrose will be immediately disqualified. HHH wishes them good luck and before he leaves, says he has a good feeling about this.
WWE Intercontinental Championship
(Elimination Chamber Match)
– Mark Henry vs. Sheamus vs. R-Truth vs. Ryback vs. King Barrett vs. Dolph Ziggler
After the quick backstage segment, we see the Elimination Chamber slowly being lowered over the ring. We then see the last person to hold the Intercontinental Championship — Daniel Bryan — sitting at ringside.
From there, we shoot to a video package that shows Bryan giving up the I-C title so that the person who wins it tonight can be a fighting champion.
Next, the ring announcer does the formal introductions and rules explanation for our next match, which will be the Intercontinental Championship Elimination Chamber match.
Mark Henry’s music hits and out he comes. Henry is the replacement in this match for the injured Rusev, who prior to getting injured, was scheduled for this slot in the bout. Henry gets locked into his pod.
Out next is Sheamus. Sheamus makes his way to the ring and gets locked into his pod. After Sheamus, R-Truth’s music hits and out he comes, without rapping, to pretty much no reaction from the Texas fans. Finally, the last person to be locked into a pod — Ryback — makes his way out.
And finally, the final two participants who will be starting the actual match itself out, make their way to the ring. First out is “King” Bad News Barrett. After he makes his way out, Dolph Ziggler’s music hits and out he comes.
The bell sounds and our six-man Elimination Chamber match for the vacant WWE Intercontinental Championship — with Barrett and Ziggler kicking things off — is officially underway. After this one is all said and done, Daniel Bryan, the previous I-C champ, is supposedly going to crown the new champ with the belt.
Early on, Ziggler and Barrett roll around on the mat in amateur wrestling fashion. It isn’t long, however, before King Barrett, the bigger of the two men, is controlling the action inside the ring.
Barrett dominates Ziggler all the way until the clock ticks down, the buzzer sounds and out comes the next participant in the match — R-Truth.
The fans boo when the next participant is announced, almost like “Booo — really? R-Truth?!” Anyways, as soon as Truth exits his pod, Barrett stops stomping and beating the crap out of him with ease.
Truth finally starts fighting back and getting some offense in, all-the-while Ziggler, who was dominated by Barrett for several minutes in the early goings of this match, is still outside of the ring selling.
Barrett finally turns the tides on Truth, only for Ziggler to re-enter the picture and attempt — unsuccessfully — to roll him up from behind. Barrett blasts Ziggler with a huge boot to the face and tries to pin him, however Ziggler manages to kick out at two as well.
King Barrett puts Ziggler through Mark Henry’s pod. Because Henry’s pod was smashed open, Henry was free to come out and enter the match, so he does. Henry goes to work on Barrett, slamming him and beating him all over the ring.
Just seconds later, because someone was about to be let loose anyway, the clock ticks down to zero and it’s time to let someone else out. I guess Henry is just legal in this match, as the announcers are selling the fact that this is a no disqualification match.
Anyways, once the clock reached zero, Ryback was the next person to be let out. Ryback immediately goes to work on Henry. After beating Henry down, Ryback starts beating on any-and-everyone in sight. The only person left locked in a pod is Sheamus.
As the action continues and Barrett takes a beatdown from Henry, Truth hits his finisher on him and pins him. 1-2-3. Truth eliminates King Barrett.
Now Henry, Truth, Ryback and Ziggler are circling each other and are unsure what to do. Finally, they close in on each other. Henry and Truth go to one corner while Ryback and Ziggler go to the other.
The clock counts down to zero and finally, Sheamus is let loose from his pod. Unfortunately, the referee has trouble unlocking and opening Sheamus’ door. The guys in the ring take turns doing quick pointless roll-ups, one after the other, while the refs try and get Sheamus’ door open.
This might be part of the plan of the match, but it is coming off as total confusion and cover-up-city. Either way, the attention is off of Sheamus now, who is still locked in his cage. Ryback hits Truth with his Shellshock finisher and pins him. 1-2-3. Truth is eliminated.
Ryback goes to work on Ziggler now as Henry sells in the corner of the ring. Why someone doesn’t just throw someone into Sheamus’ pod to smash it open the same way Henry entered the match is beyond me. It would obviously lead one to believe that the Sheamus thing is part of the match, although it’s being explained awfully — almost not at all — on commentary, so it just comes off as an issue that they’re working on in the background.
Finally, the camera focuses on Sheamus, so it looks like we’re going to get to the storyline point of all of this. And there we have it. Sheamus picks the lock with his Celtic Cross.
Sheamus finally enters the ring now and asks the fans — off mic — loudly, if we are entertained. He then goes to work, stomping all the guys, all of whom are down in and outside the ring.
Henry goes for a big slam on Sheamus and a pin, however Sheamus kicks out. Sheamus hits Henry with a Brogue Kick and pins him. 1-2-3. Henry is eliminated. The fans were dead silent, and have been dead silent, for everything since the Sheamus pod confusion. The announcers are trying to back-track and explain it, however the damage is done. That spot, if it was a spot, really took a lot of momentum out of this match.
Anyways, back to the action — Sheamus is having his way with Ziggler in the ring. Ryback is still legal, but he is selling on the outside of the ring. Ziggler tries to fire up on offense, but Sheamus easily continues to control him.
The crowd is completely and totally dead right now. A pocket of fans break out into a “Let’s Go Ziggler” chant which is somewhat spreading around the arena, but it immediately dies down. I’m not sure how it sounds live, but this crowd sounds completely dead on television.
Ryback is back in the action now in the ring, only to walk right into a superkick from Ziggler. Ziggler hits a FameAsser on Sheamus but Sheamus seconds later hits his finisher on Ziggler. 1-2-3. Ziggler is eliminated. That was a weird setup to an elimination as well. There’s something really “off” about this match and the crowd is reflecting that.
With just Sheamus and Ryback remaining in the match, the fans try to start up a “Feed Me More” chant, but it too quickly dies down. The announcers point out that both Sheamus and Ryback have never been Intercontinental Champion before. Both guys battle back-and-forth for a minute or two, with each guy trying to hit their finisher. The end saw Ryback hit Sheamus with his finisher for the 1-2-3. We have a new I-C champ.
After the match, Ryback’s music plays and he celebrates. The Chamber lifts back up to the ceiling and Daniel Bryan, the previous I-C champ, makes his way into the ring. Bryan presents Ryback with the I-C title.
Winner and NEW WWE Intercontinental Champion: Ryback
WWE World Heavyweight Championship
– Seth Rollins (c) vs. Dean Ambrose
After the final of our two Elimination Chamber matches tonight, the video package for our WWE World Heavyweight Championship main event match of the evening airs.
First out is the challenger for tonight, Dean Ambrose. Out next is his former Shield teammate and opponent for tonight, the current WWE World Heavyweight Champion Seth Rollins.
The bell sounds and here we go. Early on, Ambrose is like a mad man and is all over “The Future of WWE.” Ambrose is hitting Rollins with every move in the playbook.
Finally, Rollins takes over control of the match and slows the pace down. Rollins controls Ambrose for several minutes, with some distraction and interference help.
In the end, Ambrose was on the top rope and Rollins pulled the referee in front of him. Ambrose ended up taking them both out with the flying elbow smash.
The match would continue, only for Rollins to roll right into a Dirty Deeds from Ambrose. Ambrose covers Rollins and a second referee runs into the ring. 1-2-3. Ambrose wins.
WWE lets Ambrose do the big celebration, ala Daniel Bryan last year. Several minutes later, the referee pulls Lilian Garcia aside and explains to her that because Rollins pulled the ref in front of him, Ambrose wins — but by disqualification, so Rollins is still the champion.
After the match, Rollins is in the aisle celebrating, so Roman Reigns’ music hits and out he comes. Reigns helps Ambrose clean house of Rollins and J&J Security, along with everyone else in sight.
Eventually, Ambrose gets on the mic and announces that he won and because he’s got the title, he’s keeping it. His music plays again as he and Reigns exit through the crowd. WWE Elimination Chamber 2015 goes off the air on that note.
Winner via Disqualification: Dean Ambrose
