Road to WrestleMania runs through Elimination Chamber

The Road to WrestleMania 29 heads straight through Elimination Chamber today, with CM Punk challenging The Rock for the WWE Championship.

Being the challenger is not a position Punk is used to, or even accepting of after he and Paul Heyman stole the WWE Championship from The Rock on Raw.

Punk still claims to be the WWE Champion, granting The Rock a rematch at "his title" on pay-per-view today, and feels unjustly screwed out of the title after what he claims was a victory at Royal Rumble.

Not only does The Rock not have the WWE Championship around his waist heading into Elimination Chamber, but there will be no championship advantage for the Great One. Lose the bout via count out or disqualification and CM Punk will regain the WWE title.

Does Punk have something - or someone - up his sleeve to ensure he wins the match by any means necessary and is officially reunited with the WWE Championship?

Can The Rock turn CM Punk away once and for all, and physically regain the WWE Championship before WrestleMania 29? Either way, you know Royal Rumble John Cena will be watching this one unfold with great interest.

The World Heavyweight Championship match at WrestleMania 29 will also be decided today at Elimination Chamber when six of SmackDown's finest are locked inside Satan's Prison.

Chris Jericho, Daniel Bryan, Jack Swagger, Kane, Mark Henry and Randy Orton all step inside the intimidating Elimination Chamber with a world title match at the show of shows on the line for the winner.

Which man can survive five of his toughest challengers and go on to the main event of WrestleMania 29?

WWE Elimination Chamber is live on pay-per-view today, February 18, from 2pm on SKY ARENA (channel 38) with a replay at 8.30pm. Free For All preview shows air 1.30pm and 8pm.
