Don't miss WWE's fifth annual Elimination Chamber pay-per-view (PPV)! Live from Target Center in Minneapolis, Minnesota. The show features the eponymous six-man battle for the WWE World Heavyweight Champion between titleholder Randy Orton and Daniel Bryan, John Cena, Cesaro, Christian and Sheamus. Royal Rumble winner Batista faces Alberto Del Rio, and factions collide when The Shield goes three-on-three against The Wyatt Family.

The tag and Intercontinental titles will be on the the line, as Jimmy and Jey Uso get a shot at the belts held by the New Age Outlaws and Jack Swagger takes aim at Big E's crown. And more, in the last PPV before the launch of The WWE Network!

The action starts Sunday, February 23 with a free streaming pre-show at 7:30PM ET/4:30PM PT, while the PPV broadcast will begin at 8PM ET/5PM PT.

For all the ways to watch this annual event, consult your cable or satellite directory, or WWE.com.

The show features

They only break out the pods once a year, and that's on the road to WrestleMania! Two men will start, and every five minute another "pod" will open, releasing another Superstar into the match. With massive amounts of steel, chains and plexiglass, the Chamber has been said to take years off of careers. Whether Randy Orton retains his WWE World Heavyweight Championship or John Cena, Daniel Bryan, Sheamus, Christian or Cesaro head to The Showcase of the Immortals with the belts, a price will be paid for the honor.

The co-main event

It's rare that WWE can debut even one hot new act and book them strongly. In the year plus since Survivor Series 2012, they've done it with two groups comprised of six men. Now, after months of circling each other while managing to stay focused on climbing the WWE, The Shield and The Wyatt Family are going to butt heads. And regardless whether Bray Wyatt, Erick Rowan and Luke Harper of Dean Ambrose, Roman Reign and Seth Rollins emerge victorious, the WWE Universe will remember their showdown.

In other action

Royal Rumble winner and presumptive WrestleMania title contender Batista will attempt to shake off the pall of his lackluster return and gain some momentum when he tries to pull the thorn of Alberto Del Rio from his side.

Two other titles will be defended in Minneapolis, as Big E puts his Intercontinental belt on the line against Real American Jack Swagger. And The Uso twins take their latest stab at WWE gold when they face tag team champions Road Dogg and Billy Gunn, the New Age Outlaws!

Titus O'Neil and Darren Young have been tag partners for quite some time, but The Real Deal sees brighter horizons for a one-man ship, so the former Prime Time Players will have a chance to duke it out on PPV. And Cody Rhodes and his brother Goldust will try to begin climbing back to the tag titles when they face internet bully Ryback and his sidekick Curtis Axel on the free Kick-Off show!

Who knows what else will happen on the last WWE event that will only be available on pay-per-view?

In this StoryStream, we'll have previews of each and every match on the card. Stay tuned!
