WWE Elimination Chamber 2013: Antonio Cesaro vs. The Miz booked for Feb. 17 in New Orleans

WWE

WWE has announced a United States championship match for the Elimination Chamber pay-per-view on Feb. 17 in New Orleans, as Antonio Cesaro will defend his title against The Miz.

Looks like Wade Barrett is the only champion on the WWE roster without a date for the big pay-per-view (PPV) this weekend.

As announced on WWE.com, Antonio Cesaro will defend his United States championship against the man he has been embroiled in a rivalry with, The Miz, at the Elimination Chamber event on Sun., Feb. 17, 2013, at the New Orleans Arena in New Orleans, Louisiana.

From the preview:

Less than 24 hours after Antonio Cesaro brutally and repeatedly swung him into ringside barricades on Raw, The Miz's week perked up considerably with the news Tuesday that he has been granted a U.S. Title Match against the Swiss-born champion at WWE Elimination Chamber.

For The Awesome One, this Sunday's title bout offers a chance to even the score with the abrasive Cesaro. More importantly, perhaps, the contest also represents for The Miz a treasured second opportunity in as many months to regain the prestigious title he's held twice before.

That attack they mention is worth putting in every post, so here's the GIF of that just to remind you of how awesome Cesaro can be. I suppose we should give props to Miz for the assist. It takes two to tango, after all.

That's just beautiful. Hopefully, they can replicate that at the PPV on Sunday.

This brings the Elimination Chamber line-up to seven matches, likely making the show complete. Here's how it looks:

- The Rock vs. CM Punk
- Alberto Del Rio vs. Big Show
- World Heavyweight Championship Number One Contender Elimination Chamber Match
- Kaitlyn vs. Tamina Snuka
- The Shield vs. John Cena, Sheamus, and Ryback
- Antonio Cesaro vs. The Miz
- Rhodes Scholars vs. Brodus Clay and Tensai
