The Elimination Chamber has produced some fantastic matches over the years, but as we all know, the outcome is just as important as the action leading up to it.

With only one chamber match on this year's card, WWE is counting on the six men competing inside the massive cage to make the event a success.

Let's take a look at what we know about Sunday's event.

Venue: Talking Stick Resort Arena in Phoenix

Start Time: 8 p.m. ET (main show), 7 p.m. ET (kickoff)

Bleacher Report Writers' Thoughts and Predictions

As usual, the writing team at Bleacher Report has been sharing analysis and predictions all week leading up to Sunday's PPV:

 

Other Elimination Chamber Thoughts

The Elimination Chamber is one of WWE's trickier stipulations. Most of the matches produced inside the specialized cage have been good, but there is always the possibility of things going awry.

If Cena can retain the WWE Championship, he will headline WrestleMania 33 against Orton, but if Wyatt manages to win his first singles title, the two remaining members of The Wyatt Family will be forced to face each other.

Naomi is finally getting her chance to shine after two years of The Four Horsewomen dominating the Women's Championship scene, but it's even cooler to see three different, fully developed storylines for the women's division being featured on the PPV.

The tag title match featuring every team from the blue brand, with the exception of The Wyatt Family, will either be American Alpha's chance to prove they deserve to be at the top, or it will be an abrupt end to a short reign.

The biggest non-title feud heading into Sunday is Orton vs. Harper. It's a battle between one of the founding members of The Wyatt Family against the newest member of the group.

Many were confused when Orton didn't immediately turn on Wyatt when they first joined forces, but this could all be part of a long-term plan by WWE.

If The Viper joined the group so he could destroy it from the inside, he appears to be accomplishing his goal. It's just taking longer than expected.

The lineup for Elimination Chamber looks good on paper, so let's hope WWE books the best outcome for each contest.
