WWE Elimination Chamber 2012: Top 10 Moments in the Match's 10-Year History

The true 10-year anniversary of the Elimination Chamber match concept won't come until November, but since the WWE has provided the match with its own pay-per-view, 2012 won't see another Chamber match after Sunday. 

So let's just celebrate now! 

Originated in 2002, the Elimination Chamber is a unique combination of violence, acrobatics and drama that combines elements from the Hell in a Cell, WarGames, the Royal Rumble and Survivor Series. 

The match consists of six men, four pods, nearly 12,000 pounds of metal and two miles of chain. 

Like Hell in a Cell and other standard cage matches, the surrounding chamber serves as a brutal weapon to batter opponents with.

The difference between Hell and a Cell and Elimination Chamber, however, is that there is no padded floor surrounding the ring—there is only more unforgiving steel. 

In the 13 Elimination Chamber matches in the last decade, we've seen wrestlers ruthlessly slammed onto the backbreaking steel, we've seen high-flyers leap from the highest of heights atop the pods and we've seen wrestlers torpedoed through the pod plexiglass in a variety of ways. 

As a tribute to this decade of vicious savagery, here are the top 10 moments in the history of the Elimination Chamber match (plus five more honorable mentions that just missed the cut).
