MUMBAI: The next pay-per-view (PPV) on the WWE calendar is the Elimination Chamber event set to take place on this Sunday. This showcase features a cage match, complete with pods and countdowns and, really, just the final stop before WrestleMania.

Another reason that makes this PPV a historic one is - the fact that it represents the final PPV that will ever take place before the launch of the WWE Network.

So with just a few days remaining for the final PPV, here is what one could expect to see this Sunday.

Elimination Chamber WWE world heavyweight championship match (Randy Orton vs. John Cena vs. Sheamus vs. Daniel Bryan vs. Cesaro vs. Christian)

Cena, Sheamus, and Bryan all qualified by way of a disqualification win on Monday Night Raw over The Shield. Cesaro and Christian got in by winning qualifying matches over Dolph Ziggler and Jack Swagger respectively on Friday Night SmackDown later that same week. Orton is currently running the gauntlet with matches against all of these opponents. He has his work cut out for him as he faces his final opponent in Shemus today Monday Night Raw after losing to Bryan, Cena, and Cesaro and with the lone pin-fall win over Christian.

The Shield vs. The Wyatt Family

The disqualification win for Cena, Sheamus, and Bryan came by way of The Wyatt Family interfering in the match with The Shield. So in return for some retribution Roman Reigns, Dean Ambrose, and Seth Rollins demanded a match with the Wyatts. After a staredown on Raw this past week it has gone onto build this match as the fight to know the best team in the WWE.

Batista vs. Alberto Del Rio

“The Animal” has been unleashed and is all set to take center stage at WrestleMania XXX, but his road to the big stage has a small roadblock in the face of Alberto del Rio. Del Rio represents a former champion who can present a mostly credible opponent to catapult "The Animal" to his big title match at WrestleMania 30. The match was booked after Batista beat Del Rio to pulp on Raw and Triple H tried to calm him down by giving him the match.

Big E vs. Jack Swagger for the Intercontinental Championship

A Fatal 4-Way was randomly booked on SmackDown this past week that featured Swagger defeating Kofi Kingston, Rey Mysterio, and Mark Henry to earn top contender status.

All the action can be caught on Ten Sports - the official broadcaster of the WWE - in India.
