6 Times WWE Got The Elimination Chamber Winner Wrong

5. Ryback (Elimination Chamber 2015)

Lets be real here, Ryback winning was far from the only thing wrong with this abortion of an Elimination Chamber match.

Daniel Bryan Danielson captured his first Intercontinental Championship at WrestleMania 31 in a Ladder match, but was forced to give it up just a few months later due to concussions that later led to his two year retirement from wrestling.

WWE were tasked with finding a new champion, and decided the solution was to put six men inside the Elimination Chamber, with the winner becoming Intercontinental Champion.

Sheamus, Dolph Ziggler, Bad News Barrett, R-Truth, Mark Henry (who replaced an injured Rusev) and BIG HUNGRY were the ones given the goal of making this match memorable, and boy did they.

This is quite famously possibly the worst Elimination Chamber match in history (I say possibly as there is another one, but we will be coming across that a little later). At one point Mark Henry’s pod broke and he stepped out before awkwardly looking around like a deer in headlights because he had entered the match too early.

Dolph Ziggler tried his damnedest to save this monstrosity, but once he was sent packing, it was way, way too late. Ryback won to indifference from the crowd, Bryan handed the belt to “The Ryback” and we were all free to watch the main event in peace.

Who should have won: Dolph Ziggler

This also could have been Sheamus, but Ziggler deserved to win this match just for all the effort he put in to make it watchable. Plus the fans still really liked him at this point. A lot more than they liked Ryback, anyway.
