The road to WrestleMania XXX starts with the Elimination Chamber pay-per-view.
The main event features six Superstars sacrificing their bodies and their well-being for the right to leave with the WWE World Heavyweight Championship. Champion Randy Orton defends against Sheamus, Cesaro, Christian, John Cena and Daniel Bryan in the Chamber.
The Shield and the Wyatt Family wage war with one another in a blockbuster six-man tag team match that may very well be the most anticipated match of the last year.
The WWE Intercontinental and Tag Team Championships are on the line, former tag team partners do battle and "The Animal" Batista returns to the ring in singles action for the first time in four years.
With just over 48 hours until the final pay-per-view before WWE's annual Showcase of the Immortals, take a look at all of the last-minute information you need to properly enjoy Sunday night's festivities.

How to Watch
With digital media dominating today's culture, there are several ways to view Sunday's event. Thanks to the "How to Watch" tab on WWE's official website, here is a look at how you can catch all of the action.
As is the case every month, you can order WWE pay-per-view extravaganzas through your cable or satellite company. XFINITY, Time Warner Cable, Verizon FIOS TV and DIRECTV are among the most popular providers.
Another, Dish Network, will not be carrying the event. In a statement to WrestleZone.com, WWE confirmed the news:
WWE is pleased that the majority of our cable and satellite Pay-Per-View distributors are giving our fans an option to purchase traditional Pay-Per-Views as we prepare to launch WWE Network on Monday, February 24. Unfortunately, DISH will not be doing so. We hope DISH will reconsider for this Sunday’s Elimination Chamber Pay-Per-View event and especially for WrestleMania 30.
Fans can access the show through nontraditional means as well.
Those with Internet access or mobile devices can catch the show on WWE.com or on the WWE App. The app can be downloaded through Apple's App Store, the Google Play Store (Android), the Amazon AppStore (Kindle) and the Windows Store.
Fans with Samsung Smart TVs can view the show directly through the television set.
PlayStation owners can download the special Live Event Viewer and purchase the event via that application.
Finally, fans without access to any of those means (or those looking to have an enjoyable night out) can head out to a "Blast Area," a name for bars, restaurants or other establishments airing WWE pay-per-views, and enjoy a meal while watching all of the action.

The event is available for $44.99 in standard definition and $54.99 in high definition.
WWE will present its kickoff show just 30 minutes prior to the start of Elimination Chamber. The show airs on WWE.com, the WWE App, YouTube, Samsung Smart TV and PlayStation 3 and 4.
This month's match is a tag team showdown between brothers Cody Rhodes and Goldust and the team of Ryback and Curtis Axel. Both teams are in need of a win to help build momentum heading into WrestleMania.
Rhodes and Goldust figure to play a role in the April 6 event, but Sunday's Kickoff Match is of the utmost importance for Ryback and Axel.
The kickoff show airs at 7:30 p.m. ET/6:30 p.m. CT this Sunday night.
With just over a month between Elimination Chamber and WrestleMania XXX, do not miss out on all of the action, excitement and energy of WWE on pay-per-view!
