Every day we use slang terms in our vocabulary to describe different occurrences within the world of wrestling. "Heel," "face," "Bootista," the list goes on and on!

So I thought it would be fun to pick out one term and have you guys comment on the first thing that comes to mind.

Today's word is: Elimination Chamber - "A circular steel cage that surrounds the ring entirely, including a grated floor area on the apron. Inside the cage, at each turnbuckle, is a clear "pod" where four of the six competitors in the match must wait to be released to join the two who start at the opening bell. Wrestlers are eliminated one-by-one via pinfall or submission until only one remains."


For me, it's Jeff Hardy's Swanton Bomb off one of the Chamber pods. It's a usually solid spot that occurs during the match, and Hardy hit Big Show in solid fashion.


Okay, Cagesiders, now it's your turn. What's the first thing that comes to mind, when you hear the term "Elimination Chamber"?
