According to a Jan. 27 post from CagesideSeats.com, hard-hitting WWE legend Randy Orton will attempt to defend his WWE world heavyweight championship belt at the WWE 2014 Elimination Chamber pay-per-view event on Feb. 23, 2014, at the Target Center in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

Orton, 33, will take on Sheamus, John Cena, and Daniel Bryan.

However, more contestants will be announced in the days and weeks ahead.

The Elimination Chamber match is a six-participant match, so two more contestants will be taking part in it. Batista and Brock Lesnar are widely viewed as the biggest threats to Orton's title, so it's very possible that they could be the final two contestants rounding out the Elimination Chamber.

The Elimination Chamber, which has been utilized in the WWE ranks since 2002, is a great concept.

It works by having two participants begin the bout in the ring, while the remaining four are held within inner enclosures of the steel chamber.

The remaining four contestants are released into the match at five minute intervals.

To win, the wrestlers must eliminate each opponent from the match via pinfall or submission.

The winner is the last remaining participant after all others have been eliminated.

Sheamus, John Cena, and Daniel Bryan earned a spot in this year's WWE Elimination Chamber, by defeating The Shield in a six-man tag match on Monday night's episode of Monday Night Raw in Cleveland, Ohio.

The Wyatt Family interfered late in the match by attacking Cena, and that resulted in a disqualification.

With the Wyatt Family interfering in the match, Sheamus, Cena and Bryan earned their spots in the title match at the Elimination Chamber event.
