The PPV opened with a video package outlining the structure that wrestlers must go through in order to get to Wrestlemania. Cole announced 15,306 on hand to witness tonight's event in the Bradley Center.

Raw Elimination Chamber for WWE Championship

The WWE Championship chamber match started things off. First out was Chris Jericho in his electric light show jacket. The Miz was second to the match, although it's his first-ever appearance in the chamber. Vickie Guerrero escorted out Dolph Ziggler, then R-Truth arrived out. Kofi Kingston followed him and surveyed the inner structure before getting into his pod. The final man to arrive out was the champion CM Punk who would start against Kofi.

Kofi and Punk exchanged pins and offensive attacks early on.  At one point Punk went for a suplex over the ropes, but Kofi landed on his feet than tossed Punk backwards to the hard grating.  Moments later, Punk catapulted Kofi into Jericho's pod, then followed with a huge suplex onto the grating.

The two kept at it, with Punk in control as the next pod opened: Dolph Ziggler.  Ziggler immediately started beating up Punk, rubbing his face against the side steel chain wall.  Punk and Kofi went for side springboard moves with Ziggler in the middle in the ring.  Ziggler moved out of the way and Punk/Kofi collided.

A fourth man came in to fight, R-Truth, with no eliminations yet.  During the fights, Punk pulled off a superplex with Kingston from the top rope.  Punk had Truth down, and then went over to taunt Jericho before landing the Macho Man elbow from the corner onto Truth.  Truth pinned and eliminated first.  Another pod opened moments later, bringing The Miz into the match.  He immediately tossed Punk into the corner ringpost, then threw Kofi into a pod.

Punk had The Miz locked in the Anaconda Vice and Miz looked ready to tap.  The 10 second countdown started though, and Jericho came out of a pod, making Punk release his hold to go face to face.  The two battled with Jericho getting the upperhand.  After a near fall by Jericho on Punk, Ziggler tried to steal a pin on Y2J.  Jericho barely escaped then hit a Codebreaker on Ziggler to eliminate hit.

It's down to Kofi, Jericho, Miz and Punk.  Jericho went back into his pod at one point and Punk went after him.  Jericho got the upperhand and repeatedly smashed the door against Punk's arm and shoulder.  Jericho and Punk ended up down on the mat, while Miz and Kofi competed in the ring.  Miz went for the Superplex on Kofi, but Punk beat him from behind.  Punk grabbed Miz for a powerbomb to slam him for a near fall.  Moments later, Kofi leapt off the top of a pod to take out Miz and Punk.

Jericho managed to come over and grab Kofi, putting him into Walls of Jericho submission.  Jericho kept his knee on the back of Kofi's head and Kofi eventually tapped.  Even after the elimination, Jericho kept beating up Kofi in the ring and then tossed him out of the chamber.  Punk went up behind him and as Jericho turned, Punk landed a roundhouse kick sending Jericho out of the ring.  Jericho landed near the crowd barrier in a bunch of camera equipment, looking comatose.

WWE refs and a medical staff came over to see if Jericho was able to continue but he wasn't moving or responding.  The Miz and Punk fought inside the ring, with Jericho's status seeming to be out of the match.  Miz got the upperhand for a bit in the ring and seemed to be going ballistic attacking Punk.  CM Punk connected on Go To Sleep after avoiding Miz in the corner of the ring.  Punk secured the pinfall on Miz and was handed his championship belt as Jericho was still laying outside the ring.  Punk looked over at Jericho laying by the crowd barrier with medical staff, then walked up the ramp.

Winner: CM Punk wins the Raw Elimination Chamber to retain the WWE Championship.

They showed highlights of Santino Marella winning a Wild Card Battle Royal to become Randy Orton's replacement for the Smackdown Elimination Chamber. Cole said as Josh Matthews referred to it, a "Jeremy Lin moment" for Santino. They showed Santino backstage with a glass and a dozen eggs in a carton. He put some egg yolks into a glass and drank them, then puked them out.

They showed a lengthy video package about John Cena and his workout gym to showcase the upcoming Cena vs. Rock match at Wrestlemania 28.

Winner: TBD Tamina Snuka vs. Beth Phoenix
WWE Divas Championship

Beth had the early advantage with a side headlock on Tamina on the mat. Tamina fought out of it and managed to hit a Samoan slam on her. Tamina set up for the Samoan Splash but Beth went over to fight her down. The two divas ended up chopping back and forth in the ring.

Tamina got the upperhand with multiple chops and then a huge splash on Beth in the corner, followed by a Superkick. Tamina set up for the Splash yet again and hit it this time. She secured a pin but somehow Beth kicked out.

Moments later, Beth sent Tamina face forward into the corner turnbuckle. She followed by hoisting up Tamina for the Glam Slam to beat her by pinfall.

Winner: Beth Phoenix wins by pinfall over Tamina Snuka to retain the WWE Divas Championship.

They showed Santino backstaged punching a hanging bag of meat, "Rocky" style. He put on The Cobra sock and then delivered another shot on it.

Josh Matthews was shown backstage saying Chris Jericho was unavailable at the moment to comment on what happened earlier. Jericho was shown seated on a table in the background. Medical staff were still shown checking on him.

Justin Roberts introduced John Laurinaitis, the executive VP of talent relations and the interim GM of Monday Night Raw.  He talked about how Smackdown GM Teddy Long should be subject to the same scrutiny as him with the WWE board.  Suddenly, Alberto Del Rio's music hit and Del Rio came driving out in a fancy car and then waltzed down to the ring.  He talked about how awful Teddy Long is as the GM of Smackdown.

He suggested that Laurinaitis should be the GM permanently for Raw, but also for Smackdown.  Just then, Mark Henry's music hit and he came to the ring.  Henry talked about how Long assaulted him on Smackdown.  He said Laurinaitis has never thrown his weight around or abuse his power.  Henry said just like Del Rio he thinks JL should be permanent GM of Raw and Smackdown.

Laurinaitis started to speak when all of a sudden, Christian's music hit and he arrived to the ring.  Christian talked about the injustices committed against him by Teddy Long.  He said he also agrees about JL being the permanent GM for both Raw and Smackdown.  The segment ended with Laurinaitis gathering Henry, Christian and Del Rio into a group for Otunga to take photos of them.

Laurinaitis suggested they take a group picture together, and pulled Henry over to the group to get the photo.  Otunga snapped a few photos then one with himself in front of the group.  Cole chuckled over it all.

After a Wrestlemania video package, they showed another Santino segment.  This time he was running back and forth in front of stairs, then ran to the top of about 20 stairs before doing a victory celebration at the top including his trumpet sign.

Smakdown Elimination Chamber for World Heavyweight Championship

After more assaults in the ring, another pod was ready to open. Out came Great Khali who started to all-out beat down the other opponents. He hit a Punjabi Plunge on Rhodes, then Barrett, then chopped Santino down. However, Big Show was up and ran to spear him down hard, then pinned Khali to eliminate him.

Show climbed up on the corner near Daniel Bryan's pod. He tried to reach down and grab Bryan, then started to rip apart the chain links on top of the pod. He finall ripped it apart enough to climb into the locked pod with Daniel Bryan. After a few minutes of assaulting Bryan, the latest countdown started up, meaning it was Bryan's time.

Later in the match, it was down to Daniel Bryan, Wade Barrett and Santino Marella.

Bryan kept celebrating triumphantly in the ring, but was interrupted when Sheamus' music hit. Sheamus marched down to the ring and got in with Bryan.

Hornswoggle said he likes Jack cheese and then "cottage cheese" and pointed to Vickie's legs. Jack Swagger and Vickie came up.
