WWE Elimination Chamber 2014: The Shield vs The Wyatt Family preview

See also

According to a Feb. 22 post from Bleacher Report, WWE Elimination Chamber 2014 kicks off with a tag-team bout pitting Cody Rhodes and Goldust against Curtis Axel and Ryback.

This is an interesting matchup because there have been rumors swirling that Rhodes and Goldust are about to break up as a tag-team, even though they are brothers in real life.

If they win at Elimination Chamber, that would keep them from falling too far down the ladder and also keep their team in tact.

Goldust is still a very popular character, so there's a good chance the WWE scripts Axel and Ryback to lose in this preliminary card clash.

Next up on the WWE Elimination Chamber card, Big E takes on Jack Swagger for the Intercontinental Championship belt.

Big E has been getting a huge push of late, while Swagger has been regularly defeated at recent WWE Monday Night Raw events.

In all likelihood, Big E will retain his title belt at the Elimination Chamber.

Also on the WWE Elimination Chamber main card, Titus O’Neil takes on Darren Young in a bout between two former tag-team partners.

The WWE wants to promote O'Neil as quickly as possible, so this one doesn't have a lot of mystery behind it.

WWE fans should expect a big win here by O'Neil.

Next up on the Elimination Chamber card, the New Age Outlaws battle The Usos for the WWE Tag Team Championship.

The Usos have been due for a title run for some time now, but there's a good chance the New Age Outlaws retain their belts at Elimination Chamber.

The reason is that The Usos have been getting a nice push lately, so the WWE might want to have them win the belts at Wrestlemania XXX instead of Elimination Chamber.

Elimination Chamber also features a bout between Batista and Alberto Del Rio, which is clearly a clash that "The Animal" should win.

However, there have been rumors swirling that Brock Lesnar will be making a cameo at the event. If he is to get involved in Elimination Chamber at all, it'll probably be during the Batista vs Del Rio bout.

In the WWE Elimination Chamber 2014 co-main, The Shield battles The Wyatt Family.

Both groups have been receiving heavy promotion from the WWE in recent groups, but there's a great chance The Wyatt Family reigns supreme in this tilt.

The WWE has been teasing a breakup of The Shield for months now, and tonight could be the night when it finally happens.

Six WWE superstars enter the Elimination Chamber for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship in tonight's main event, as Randy Orton, John Cena, Daniel Bryan, Sheamus, Cesaro and Christian are set to do battle.

Bryan has a legitimate chance to win, but it all likelihood it'll be Orton who remains champion heading into Wrestlemania.

Here's a look at the full WWE Elimination Chamber 2014 fight card:

  • Cody Rhodes and Goldust vs. Ryback and Curtis Axel
  • Alberto Del Rio vs. Batista
