What's at stake?

I've got nothing. We all know that this match means nothing and is just a way to keep Batista busy. The only thing of interest is how bad they have Batista beat ADR.

Will ADR get significant offense?

Will it go more than 5 minutes?

You know where you'll find the answers to those and all of your Elimination Chamber-related questions, right?
