WWE Elimination Chamber live
The WWE is nearing its final stop on the 2013 Road to WrestleMania. WWE's Elimination Chamber pay-per-view has become one of the most important shows of the year as the last pay-per-view before WrestleMania.
Punk Rock II is going to be another great match, but unfortunately for CM Punk fans, it will once again end with the People's Champion raising the WWE Championship.

It's a key stop on the Road to WrestleMania. Although the card isn't quite on the same level as the year's biggest wrestling event, it's definitely stronger than in the past. The presence of The Rock is obviously a major reason for that.
All told, it should be a show that does a terrific job of advancing storylines toward WrestleMania and could be one of the best of 2013, when fans look back at year's end. Here's a look at the viewing information for the pay-per-view, followed by some predictions.
