2013's WWE Elimination Chamber is the last big pay-per-view event before WrestleMania, which should make the matches all the more epic and exciting.

All the big names are coming out for this year's event, from The Rock all the way to Kane.

With big titles on the line, and the Elimination Chamber matchup looming, here's a breakdown of the top matches coming up this Sunday.


The Rock vs. CM Punk

Headlining this year's event is the big match between The Rock and CM Punk.

The rematch from the Royal Rumble has a twist, with the WWE Championship on the line. Adding fuel to the fire, if The Rock is disqualified or counted out, he will lose his title.

With the victor of this match most likely headed to take on John Cena at WrestleMania, it's hard to think of a situation in which The Rock loses.

The WWE world is hungry for a Rock vs. Cena matchup, and it would be a huge money maker for the industry.

But with talk of the WWE being too predictable, it could be time for a big shakeup. A CM Punk win would certainly ensure that, but it still isn't very likely.


Alberto Del Rio vs. Big Show

By proportions alone, this is a huge match, but it's also a big matchup because of the wrestlers and personalities involved.

Alberto Del Rio is one of the WWE's rising stars, and he'll look to retain his World Heavyweight Championship.

The Big Show is one of the biggest personalities in the WWE, and the fierce veteran will be looking to retake the title.

Both wrestlers have been going at it for some time, and this should be a culmination of their feud. The fireworks should be flying in this one.


Jack Swagger vs. Chris Jericho vs. Daniel Bryan vs. Kane vs. Mark Henry vs. Randy Orton

The PPV event is named after this match, so you should expect huge things from the WWE.

The winner of this match will head on to WrestleMania to take on the World Heavyweight Champion with a shot at the title.

Chris Jericho and Randy Orton are the biggest names in this match, and there's a likely chance the Elimination Chamber comes down to them.

But if the WWE does take the unpredictable route, there could be a very real upset in the making here. Either way it's sure to be a match of epic proportions.
