Elimination Chamber 2014 Rumors [VIDEO]: Three Potential Matches Planned For February's WWE Pay-Per-View
With the 2014 Royal Rumble over with, the WWE now switches gears on the road to WrestleMania XXX, with the next pay-per-view event being the Elimination Chamber on Feb. 23 live from the Target Center in Minneapolis, and on top of the six-man Elimination Chamber match for the WWE Championship, the WWE has three other rumored matches in store for the February event.
According to Wrestlingheadlines.com, the WWE has at least three other matches in the works for the event. It was revealed on Monday Night RAW that Randy Orton will defend his WWE World Heavyweight Championship against five other WWE Superstars including Daniel Bryan, Sheamus, John Cena and two other wrestlers that are yet to be revealed inside the Elimination Chamber structure.
It was determined on RAW that Bryan, Sheamus and Cena will be in the match after they defeated The Shield in a qualification match. The win came after The Wyatt Family interfered and attacked the babyface team, leading to The Shield being disqualified and losing the chance to qualify for the Chamber.
One of the rumored matches coming out of RAW will pit The Shield against The Wyatt Family in a six-man tag team match as The Shield will look for revenge after The Wyatts cost the trio their chance to be in the Chamber match.
Another match rumored for the card will put CM Punk against Kane in a singles match. Kane decided that Punk would be the No.1 entrant into the Royal Rumble match, and after Kane came into the match and was eliminated, he later came out and eliminated Punk to cost him a shot at the title at WrestleMania. The WWE will build on this storyline to have Punk take on Kane at Elimination Chamber to bridge into his rumored match against Triple H at WrestleMania 30.
The final rumored match involves Batista because since he already has a WWE World Heavyweight Championship match against the champion come WrestleMania XXX in New Orleans at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome on April 6, he reportedly won't be in the Chamber match.
It is expected that Batista will take on Alberto Del Rio in singles competition, building off their mini feud heading into the Royal Rumble match.
The Elimination Chamber takes place on Feb. 23, and on top of the Chamber match it seems as though the WWE has a pretty solid undercard planned for the event.
