The final three men who will wrestle in this Sunday's WWE Elimination Chamber Match were announced on Raw tonight.

Enzo Marino of succinctly covered the situation now going into the match at the Elimination Chamber pay-per-view.

Three of the competitors—Daniel Bryan, Mark Henry and Randy Orton—had already been slotted in the match prior to tonight. On Monday night's broadcast, Jack Swagger, Chris Jericho and Kane earned the last three spots.

The three earned their shots in a variety of ways in matches created by Booker T.

Jericho was forced to beat an opponent already confirmed for the Elimination Chamber match, which turned out to be Daniel Bryan. Jack Swagger picked up a dominating win over Zack Ryder, which convinced Booker T to put him in the match. Then, Kane beat Dolph Ziggler toward the end of Raw, with the winner of that match having earned himself a spot in the Chamber match.

The winner of the Elimination Chamber Match will earn a shot for the World Heavyweight Title at WrestleMania XXIX, which will be either the Big Show or Alberto Del Rio, depending on the result of their match at the PPV.

Fans will have a very hard time sorting out who will be the victor. You can almost certainly exclude Kane and Daniel Bryan because they'll likely be wrestling each other at WrestleMania.

The other four all have a legitimate shot to wrestle for the World Title considering how they've performed going into the PPV or when also considering where their star level currently resides.
