Elimination Chamber 2014 [VIDEO]: Two More Wrestlers Added To Chamber Match, Shield vs. Wyatts Announced?
Following Tuesday's WWE SmackDown tapings in Toledo, Ohio, the WWE has added a new match to the Elimination Chamber pay-per-view that takes place on Sunday, Feb. 23 at the Target Center in Minneapolis, and has also rounded out the field for the big six-man match for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship.
According to WrestlingInc.com, at Tuesday's tapings Antonio Cesaro defeated Dolph Ziggler with the Cesaro Swing and Neutralizer to earn his spot in the six-man Elimination Chamber match while his tag partner wasn't as lucky since Jack Swagger lost to Christian to give the returning superstar the final spot in the match.
With those two added to the match, the final six-man field for the Chamber includes WWE World Heavyweight Champion Randy Orton, John Cena, Daniel Bryan, Sheamus and the newly added Antonio Cesaro and Christian.
The WWE also added a six-man tag team match to the show as it was announced on SmackDown that The Shield will take on The Wyatt Family at the Elimination Chamber. The conflict between both parties began when The Wyatts ran down to the ring during The Shield's match with Cena, Bryan and Sheamus on RAW and attacked Cena to cause a disqualification and cost The Shield a spot in the Chamber match.
On SmackDown, Triple H told The Shield to sweep their problems with The Wyatts under the rug, but when they refused he made the match for the Elimination Chamber.
This match was one of three rumored matches that were going to be added to the card and it was the first to be confirmed. One of the other rumored matches was going to pit CM Punk vs. Kane in a singles match to work off their storyline at the Royal Rumble and bridge into a Punk vs. Triple H match at WrestleMania XXX on April 6 in New Orleans at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome.
Now that reports have circulated that CM Punk has quit the company, it seems as though the WWE has no choice but to scrap that match and it looks like Bryan may take on Triple H at the biggest show of the year instead of Punk.
The other rumored match for the event is between Batista and Alberto Del Rio, since the two of them have been feuding ever since it was announced that "The Animal" would return.
The Elimination Chamber is just over four weeks away at the Target Center in Minneapolis.
