The short amount of time between the Royal Rumble and Elimination Chamber makes for an accelerated build. That is already apparent when it comes to the World Heavyweight Championship No. 1 contender chamber match, which is set to take place in less than two weeks.
SmackDown general manager Booker T already named three of the six participants on Raw as he has placed Randy Orton, Rey Mysterio and Daniel Bryan in the mix. That leaves three more spots to be decided, and there is suddenly no shortage of candidates as recent returns have given the WWE roster a great deal of depth.
The SmackDown chamber match last year was good from a match quality standpoint, but the lack of star power was evident as Santino Marella and The Great Khali were forced to take part. That shouldn't be an issue in 2013, as there are several strong candidates who are being considered for one of the final three spots in the bout.
Although at least two of the following superstars will inevitably be left out, here are five men who are most likely to secure one of the remaining chamber match berths. Regardless of who is ultimately selected, this contest certainly has the potential to steal the show at Elimination Chamber.
