As a result of the returning Teddy Long firing Dolph Ziggler on last night’s SmackDown, he has been removed from the SmackDown Elimination Chamber match. WWE’s website says it’s “reasonable to assume” that Edge will only face four challengers in the Chamber. WWE also announced on their website last night that Tag Team Champions Santino Marella and Vladimir Kozlov will defend against The Corre at Sunday’s Elimination Chamber pay-per-view.
As of right now, the current card have five matches, including the Miz defending the WWE Championship against Jerry “The King” Lawler; the RAW Elimination Chamber #1 contender match, which will feature John Cena, John Morrison, R-Truth, Randy Orton, Sheamus and CM Punk; the SmackDown! World Championship Elimination Chamber will feature World Champion Edge, Dolph Ziggler, Kane, Drew McIntyre, Rey Mysterio and Wade Barrett; Alberto Del Rio vs Kofi Kingston; and the aforementioned Tag Team Title Match
