The set ends with Todd Grisham telling us winning the chamber is worth it but the price of immortality is not cheap & to be glad that we saw the chamber from outside not in.
No Way Out 2009 had 2 very awesome Chamber Matches & even though the Raw Chamber Match had less stars in the ring it was the better Chamber Match that night but not by much. Elimination Chamber 2010 had a great RAW Chamber but the SmackDown one was good also even though they less more stars. The sequence between HHH & Taker at No Way out 09 as the final 2 was very good. The spots Rey had in 2009 been good & he was the MVP of the match. The final 2 between HHH & Undertake in 2009 was great. In the final match Punk was gold with wrestling & promos.
