Spoiler: Participants for the SmackDown Elimination Chamber Match

– It was announced at the beginning of tonight’s WWE SmackDown tapings in Omaha that Daniel Bryan would defend the World Heavyweight Title against Mark Henry, Randy Orton, Wade Barrett, Cody Rhodes and Big Show in the SmackDown Elimination Chamber match.

WWE then did an angle between Teddy Long and Mark Henry where Henry ended up being suspended indefinitely. Henry is apparently being written off TV for a while to deal with injuries.

Later in the tapings, The Great Khali was announced as Henry’s replacement. The updated card looks like this:

SmackDown Elimination Chamber for the World Heavyweight Title
Daniel Bryan vs. Wade Barrett vs. Intercontinental Champion Cody Rhodes vs. Big Show vs. Randy Orton vs. The Great Khali

RAW Elimination Chamber for the WWE Title
CM Punk vs. Chris Jericho vs. The Miz vs. R-Truth vs. Dolph Ziggler vs. Kofi Kingston

John Cena vs. Kane

    Is it just me or is anyone else sick and tired of the announcers always saying what a dissadvatge the champion is in a elimination chamber match. Correct me if im wrong but they have the same chance as everyone else in the match 1in 6. Unlike a triple threat or a fatal four way where its one fall to a finish and the champ doesnt need to be involved in the fall to lose the title. In the chamber for the champ to lose the title he needs to be pinned or made submit like everyone else in the match. So he is at no dissadvantage. I know im probably being pety its just something i wanted to get off my chest.

    Orton to win the Heavyweight Title and be called out by Sheamus.
    Punk to retain and be challenged by Jericho. Cena vs Rock and Triple H vs Taker in an all face vs face Wrestlemania.

  • venom

    I hope Bryan retains, but for some reason I think orton will win. Khali is back in the title scene? lol. Don’t worry everybody, he is not going into Wrestlemania as champion.

  • Dave

    I honestly don’t mind Khali being put in the main event. Hell. When you need to get 6 wrestlers together for that type of match, it stands to reason, you’re going to have to look slightly below your usual top performers. Just for gods sake don’t let him actually win it.

    As for who will win. I’m not going to go with anything groundbreaking here, and I don’t particularly like it. But I get the feeling WWE would rather have the belt on Orton going in to Mania, so I’m not seeing Danielson retaining.

  • Mark

    firstly the cena v kane storyline is coming to an end in february so thats why they are having a match. Secondly bit confused about them putting the Great Khali in the match , hes only just returned ?? Thirdly, agree with above Henry has to deal with injuries so needs time off

  • Diesel

    I really don’t get all these negative votes, I mean Khali in the main event is laughable & him as a champion was just absolutely horrific. The fact that this guy was getting pushes & title reigns yet guys like Christian (ok yes he had one mediocre reign), Regal & Barrett weren’t is just mind boggling! Hell I’d even take R-Truth/Ron Killings back as a main eventer (why WWE still haven’t pushed this guy up to championship level is beyond me).

  • really kane vs john cena………AGAIN!

  • dawg

    I Love this site

  • scooter

    whats funny is that before his return at the rumble khali was a jobber! someone call funaki his time is now!

  • Diesel

    Khali back in the main event?? Seriously WWE will you never learn??

  • hjkhjk

    It’s obvious it’s gonna be Khali vs Sheamus at mania.

  • Marc

    Vince likes these big lumbering guys and yet those big guys never dominate anybody. They always get beat by smaller guys. You’d think a guy like Great Khali would be indestructible but instead he can get beat by Hornswoggle. I agree get Christian or Ted DiBiase in there.

  • Jon

    Khaili? I mean there has to some else other than Khaili like Christian or heck Mick Foley even.

  • Devil_Rising

    I was afraid as soon as he came in the rumble, that he was back for good. I don’t know what it is, but Vince LOVES him “big lumbering men who can’t move well OR wrestle at all”.

  • Jimbo

    Glad to see Rhodes getting some main-event exposure.

  • Prince

    Had to come up with an angle to get him off TV. Who really cares what it is? He obviously can’t compete right now. I’m surprised he got through the match at Royal Rumble. Prolly why it was short though.

  • MJ

    Wait a mintue? Mark henry is injured why the fuck are they doing this shit to him?

  • Prince

    I like the Chamber matches other than Khali being in the Smackdown chamber. Should’ve been a returning Christian. Only other gripe would be the Raw one not being a #1 contender match. Otherwise looks good. The Cena/Kane match will be good. Not sure what else will be on this card though.

  • Khali is a walking botch I honestly believe the man doesn’t have knees

  • jason

    Talk about a crap card, I miss the Bischoff elimination chamber booked match’s. This is just sad
