When it comes to big events, sports fans love to talk about how February is the worst month of the year. I tend to disagree but one thing I will say is that World Wrestling Entertainment’s annual February pay-per-view, No Way Out, is one of the stranger events on the calendar. It’s not TNA Lockdown strange but the fact that it comes between the Royal Rumble and ‘Mania always make it feel a little underwhelming.
That said, I was looking back at some of the old matches and suddenly realized that No Way Out always seems to produce memorable moments. Foley’s first retirement, Lesnar-Guerrero, the rebirth of the nWo, Hogan-Rock II and much more. For a show that’s stuck between the top two events of the year it’s a pretty impressive list.
So, will the No Way Out magic continue tonight? Not so sure about that one just yet. Sure, there will be two Elimination Chambers on the card (although the EC has never really done it for me) but the problem lies in the real problem of holding a pay per view in February. By now, we’re pretty certain as to what ‘Mania will look like so there aren’t many surprises out there. Unless something drastic happens it appears as though we’re getting Edge vs. Undertaker and Cena vs. HHH at ‘Mania. The only real questions are whether Randy Orton will squeeze his way into the main event with HHH and Cena and whether or not Rey Mysterio will compete tonight after suffering a torn right bicep in Santiago, Chile a couple of days ago.
So, yeah, like I said in the first place, you should probably tune in tonight. Carry on.
