"The Second Road was more brutal
then the opening road, more trying.
The giant coliseum of chains and steel
is unforgiving of mistakes and arrogance.
If the Devil's Playground had a throne,
Shaitan's Playpen would be the heir."
I'll be frank when I say that the Elimination Chamber scares me on some level.
I re-watched last year's Elimination Chamber pay-per-view for shoots and giggles. If the namesake match wasn't called the Elimination Chamber, it probably could have been called Hell In a Cell 2.0.
Taking place this year in Milwaukee, the next pay-per-view has one thing that is certain.
As WrestleMania 28 begins to take shape, the WWE has a few rumored matches penciled in for the big event in Miami.
With the WWE though, nothing is certain.
However, as a few weeks ago, this was thrown into flux as the WWE toyed with the idea of switching off opponents to have Jericho take on Undertaker and Triple H take on Punk.
Of course, that seemingly subsided after Jericho called out Punk and "The Phenom" openly challenged Triple H to a match at WrestleMania 28.
As we can see, these things are ever fickle.
As with all WWE pay-per-views, there are certain critical factors going in that need to be addressed and will likely crop up at some point during the show.
This is the first of a two part preview of the Elimination Chamber matches. We'll deal with Raw first. Part 2 will deal with SmackDown's as changes are seemingly happening to the match on a daily basis. You'll see on Friday.
