WWE MAIN EVENT RESULTS AND LIVE BLOG FOR JAN. 30
The C. J. here for some Wednesday night fun.
Broadcast is live.
Michael Cole informs us that Vince McMahon is recovering from his surgery.
Out comes Cody Rhodes.
Cody: "This show is turning out to be a complete farce"
He learned the word from his good friend Damien Sandow. It's nice that those two are still buddies.
Cody says that the Elimination Chamber Match is comical and ludicrous. Cody Rhodes has been waiting six years to become world champion. It's outrageous that only former champions have been invited to participate.
Instead of six former champions in the match, we have six failures.
And Cody has a chair! We have a good old fashion sit-in! He's not going to leave until Booker T comes down to the ring!
Cole informs us that Booker is no here, because this is Main Event. Even though it tapes on the same night as SmackDown.
I don't think WWE thought that one through.
IT'S A SHAMEFUL THING, LOST YOUR HEAD!
