WWE.com has officially added The Rock to the Elimination Chamber pay-per-view event page.
– At Tuesday’s SmackDown tapings in Bridgeport, WWE did an injury angle with Randy Orton where The Shield put him through a table in a backstage segment. Later on, Matt Striker did an update and said that Orton had a separated shoulder and a possible concussion.
It would appear this is WWE’s way of writing Orton off TV as he suffered a wrist injury at Sunday’s Tribute to The Troops tapings in Norfolk.
– If things stay as planned, the World Heavyweight Title at WrestleMania 29 will be decided with a Randy Orton vs. Sheamus match. This would mean one of them has to win the title between now and then. Orton would be working the match as a heel.
There has been at least some talk of turning Alberto Del Rio babyface. WWE officials badly want a top Hispanic babyface. The feeling is that Rey Mysterio won’t be around forever and is far from an office favorite while Sin Cara just isn’t ready.
– As noted, The Rock is being advertised for WWE’s Elimination Chamber pay-per-view in February. Word going around WWE is that he will indeed be wrestling on that show, most likely in one of the Chamber matches. This would be The Rock’s first-ever Chamber match.
