The Grapevine (2/10/17): The Elimination Chamber Of Secrets Has Been Opened


Good morning, and this is your daily Grapevine! This section of Smark Henry is where we round up all the founded and unfounded rumors abound the pro wrestling scene that you may have missed over the evening.

The odds for Elimination Chamber are in, and they're exactly what you'd expect:



  • The Elimination Chamber betting odds heavily favor Bray Wyatt to take the WWE Championship. John Cena is second in line to win and retain the title, and AJ Styles is third in place. Meanwhile, both American Alpha and Alexa Bliss are favored to retain their respective championships. (Source: Bet Wrestling)

We say: The rumors line up so far. While gambling odds can change at any time, remember that the odds successfully managed to predict Randy Orton winning the Royal Rumble (shortly before the day of the show), so this paints a pretty good picture of where we'll be at after Sunday.


  • Austin Aries has been cleared from his face injury and is being considered for a Cruiserweight Championship match at WrestleMania. While it isn't final yet, his being given more screen time via post-match interviews is an indirect way of building up to that potential feud. (Source: WON)

We say: Sounds like pure speculation based on how Aries has been used so far, but we wouldn't be opposed to it at all. That'll be a blockbuster Cruiserweight Championship match.


  • Kane has been taking time off TV as of late to deal with some nagging injuries. He hasn't been seen on SmackDown Live since early December, and his last match was a victory against Luke Harper in a late November episode of the show. (Source: WON)

We say: We love Kane, but we never even missed him. Perhaps it's for the better at this point.

Let us know what you think of today's news in the comments!
