WWE.com: The Top 10 Matches of 2014…So Far

#8. Randy Orton vs. Daniel Bryan vs. John Cena vs. Cesaro vs. Sheamus vs. Christian – WWE World Heavyweight Championship Elimination Chamber Match (Elimination Chamber)
People forget how awesome this match was. They shouldn’t. On a night that was arguably headlined in spirit by the first clash between The Shield and The Wyatt Family (press pause on that for a minute), a wild bash for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship unfolded inside the twisted steel of “Satan’s Prison” that didn’t cease to surprise the WWE Universe for a single second.

Well, maybe the ultimate screwing of Daniel Bryan — yet again — out of the supreme prize by The Authority was something you could see coming from a mile away. But certainly not the perennial underdog Christian eliminating the Irish juggernaut Sheamus with a frog splash off the Chamber pods; or the ascendant Cesaro swinging Randy Orton like a hammer throw; or The Wyatts’ entrance into the Chamber to feast upon an unsuspecting John Cena. Going into this match the WWE Universe likely had their favorites, but with all six Superstars entering the Chamber before a single elimination was recorded, what sometimes seems like a formality on the final stop to WrestleMania suddenly took on an air of unpredictability. Anything really can happen in WWE, and for one night anything almost did.











WWE Magazine: Then & Now

WWE Magazine: What was the most important thing on your mind during that time?

Christian: I was just new to the company and coming in, so the most important thing on my mind was trying to establish myself, trying to make my mark. I always kind of viewed getting to WWE as my ultimate goal, but getting here and staying here were two completely different things. Having longevity and being able to stay relevant for a long time was truly important to me. I always had confidence in myself, but I had to make sure to take advantage of every opportunity and also to create opportunities of my own.

WWE Magazine: Christian then vs. Christian now. And the winner is?

Christian: Christian now, without a doubt. I’m smarter. And I’m a little more sly. I just think I’m better at this age than I was back then, and that comes from experience. But if you were to ask that guy in the photo, he was pretty cocky, so he’d probably tell you that he would win…but he wouldn’t.

WWE Magazine: What are the current whereabouts of the outfit in this photo?

Christian: I still own this one. I think it’s packed away in a plastic container at home. I don’t have it marked or hanging up or anything, although I know exactly where it is.
