So I just realized Doctor Octopus is Spider-man instead of Peter Parker, Miles Morales is Ultimate Spider-man instead of Ultimate Parker, Flash Thompson is Venom instead of Eddie Brock and Kaine is the Scarlet Spider instead of Ben Reilly. Just a very slow observation. Have some Spidermen.
Elimination Chamber For The World Heavyweight Championship Survivor Series November 17th, 2002
With the Elimination Chamber PPV airing later tonight, I think there’s not a better time to post this - the very first Elimination Chamber, held at Survivor Series ‘02, for the WHC (then held by Triple H).
Things of note: Triple H suffers a throat injury courtesy of Van Dam, Shawn Michaels may or may not have come cosplaying as He-Man (or Robin Hood), Saliva performed Chris Jericho’s entrance (I forgot for a second they were a thing in 2002), and good lord, the sheer size of 2002 Kane was something to behold.
Punk wrestled in the tag match main event, teaming up with Antonio Cesaro against The MIz and Ryback. During the match, there was a spot where The Miz delivered a stalling suplex on Punk. Somehow The Miz lost his balance and dropped Punk almost directly on his head. The crowd instantly knew the move did not go as planned, as Punk rolled out of the ring. WWE officials ran over to Punk and checked him out for several minutes. The match continued and Punk did return to action, but was visibly shaken up and was wrestling at a much slower pace than usual.
BRAINBUUUUUSSSTAAAAAAAAAHHHH but seriously Mr Kennedy got fired for doing shit like that. Why the hell was he trying a stalling suplex anyway?
