Ryback might have spoiled a "WWE Monday Night Raw" surprise on his Twitter account. On Feb. 11, the WWE superstar tweeted that the six-man tag team match he is involved in at the pay per will be inside the Elimination Chamber.
Originally, there was only going to be one Elimination Chamber match, the one to determine the number one contender to the world championship belt. So far, that match features Randy Orton, Rey Mysterio, Daniel Bryan, Mark Henry, and possibly Jack Swagger and Kane.
The original plans to not have one for the Raw brand was because the Elimination Chamber is because the traditional chamber match is an elimination match and the WWE does not want to have their top drawing stars elimination. The men involved are John Cena, Ryback, Sheamus and all three members of The Shield. The only way to pull it off is by having the faces sweep The Shield, and that would kill their momentum.
If Ryback is right, there is a chance the WWE could be planning something different for inside the structure. The way the match originally originated was when Triple H suggested bringing back the War Games with two rings. He was shot down and the Elimination Chamber formed from that idea.
The original idea for The War Games is that two teams fought, but only two men started the match. At intervals one member of a team would enter, creating a handicap match. Then a member from the other team would enter until all members were in the ring. Then the only way to win is by submission.
If the Chamber is used, it could end up being like the War Games, with the teammates in their own chambers, released periodically, until all the men are in the ring. Then the match would go until there is a winner. Whatever they decide, the WWE should announce it on "WWE Monday Night Raw" tonight.
