Considering No Way Out/Elimination Chamber is the springboard (along with the Rumble) to WrestleMania, it’s no surprise that Cena has been so successful at the event.
Cena’s first appearance at the event, however, did not go too well as he lost in a triple threat match to Kurt Angle (the match also featured the Big Show).
Cena would get his revenge on Angle the following year as Cena defeated Angle in a number one contender’s match that sent Cena to his first title match at the big show.
The 2007 edition was not too memorable for Cena as he teamed with WrestleMania opponent HBK to face Undertaker and Batista. The only reason Cena and HBK won was because Batista turned on his partner.
The 2008 No Way Out saw Randy Orton get himself disqualified as Cena failed to win the WWE Title.
2009, 2010 and 2011, Cena took part in the elimination chamber match.
At the 2009 chamber, Cena was World Champion but lost the title as he was on the receiving end of a 619, codebreaker and spear.
2010 was bittersweet for Cena. He walked out of the chamber as the WWE Champion but was then quickly forced to defend his title against Batista. Needless, to say Cena’s reign didn’t last too long.
Just this year at the Elimination Chamber PPV, Cena won the Raw Chamber match which then guaranteed him a title shot at the show of shows.
