Final Hurdle

Tonight is the final WWE pay-per-view before WrestleMania.

The Elimination Chamber show usually sets up a few of the bouts that will take place at Mania, and I can't see tonight being any different.

We all know that The Rock vs John Cena is the plan for April so I cannot see any deviation from the script in The Rock's title defence against CM Punk.

It should be a win for the champion.

The one match that does interest me is the Elimination Chamber bout involving Jack Swagger, Chris Jericho, Daniel Bryan, Kane, Mark Henry and Randy Orton.

The winner of the match is set to challenge whoever the world champion is at the end of tonight's show (Alberto Del Rio or The Big Show).

I'm guessing Del Rio retains his title which leaves the possibility for Jack Swagger or Mark Henry to be the challenger come WrestleMania.

If I had to make a stab in the dark and pick between Swagger or Henry, I'll take Swagger.

The reasoning is because I think they are trying to do a race angle with Swagger's manager, Zeb Coulter and - as Del Rio is Mexican - it sort of makes sense to go with Swagger as the challenger.
