WWE Raw Elimination Chamber match announced: CM Punk vs Chris Jericho vs Dolph Ziggler vs Kofi Kingston vs The Miz vs R-Truth

Well this is quite the surprise.

Instead of actually setting up angles on Raw to lead into the Elimination Chamber pay-per-view, which is scheduled to go down this upcoming Feb. 19, 2012, brings word of the six men who will participate in the Raw Chamber match for the WWE championship:

In breaking news, Executive Vice President of Talent Relations and Interim Raw General Manager John Laurinaitis revealed exclusively to the Superstars who will compete for the WWE Title in the Raw Elimination Chamber Match: WWE Champion CM Punk, Dolph Ziggler, Chris Jericho, R-Truth, The Miz and Kofi Kingston.

What an interesting way to break news of a major match, right? Why not wait until the opening segment of Raw tonight? I suppose they're going to announce it tonight anyway.

Punk, Ziggler and Jericho sound good, Miz and Truth not so much and what in the blue hell is Kofi Kingston doing in this match? I'm very much looking forward to how they'll explain this one.

Make sure you follow along with the Raw live blog tonight for all the latest and greatest right here.
