Orton says it is unfair that he has to defend his title inside the Elimination Chamber because he has already beaten his opponents. He says he will win again. He says he was equal to Batista in Evolution but now he is better than him and he will beat him because he is the greatest Superstar today.
The Authority comes out to cut him off and Stephanie McMahon says that Orton needs to calm down because of his history of paranoid outbursts. Orton yells that it's not fair but Triple H tells him that he has to be careful as the face of the WWE and that he could be replaceable. Stephanie says she can't believe she is saying this, but Daniel Bryan could even be their face of the company. Triple H starts a "Yes!" chant and the crowd goes wild.
The Shield defeat Big E. Langston, Kofi Kingston and Rey Mysterio when Dean Ambrose tags himself in even though Roman Reigns was about to hit a spear. He hits his headlock driver for the pin, but Reigns gets in his face as Seth Rollins tries to cool them off. The Wyatt Family comes on the TitanTron and Bray Wyatt says he knows that The Shield are pawns and that they will move around until they sacrifice themselves. He says the end is nigh and he will build his empire while his enemies fall. Luke Harper asks if it was worth it and says he has always been their king. Erick Rowan leans toward the camera and tells them to run as the feed cuts.
Bad News Barrett demands decorum and says millions watched the Super Bowl but in reality they just stuffed their faces with junk food. He says the people will not survive until the next Super Bowl, but Jerry Lawler gets up and says the bad news they all hope they don't see Barrett next week.
Christian defeats Jack Swagger (w/Antonio Cesaro and Zeb Colter) when he counters a Swagger Bomb attempt into a roll up for the pin.

Batista comes out to the ring to cut a promo (to a smattering of boos, no less) but Alberto Del Rio cuts him off almost immediately. He tells Batista they should settle their unfinished business, but Batista says he has no problem with him. Del Rio says while Batista was doing movies for the last four years, he was winning major titles. He says he will make Batista beg for mercy and for Del Rio not to break his arm. Batista again says he has no problem with him, but Del Rio hits him with the microphone and stomps him. He tries to go off the ropes but Batista gets up and clotheslines him. He tries to set up a Batista Bomb but Del Rio escapes under the bottom rope and runs up the ramp. He stares from the stage while Batista dares him to come back into the ring.
The Wyatt Family defeats Dolph Ziggler, R-Truth and Xavier Woods when Bray Wyatt plants Ziggler with Sister Abigail. Ambrose comes on the TitanTron and mockingly says they are afraid of the Wyatts. He says The Shield doesn't live in their world of "haunted rocking chairs," and Rollins calls Bray delusional. He says it's even more delusional to think they can beat the Shield. Reigns says they are standing in the Shield's yard and they will beat the Wyatts at Elimination Chamber. Bray laughs in the ring and says he welcomes this war.
Naomi (w/Cameron) defeats Aksana (w/Alicia Fox) with a moonsault off the turnbuckle. Alicia tries to attack Naomi after the bell, but Cameron breaks it up and the Funkadactyls fight them off. AJ Lee was on commentary for this match with Tamina Snuka at her side.
Daniel Bryan faces Randy Orton in the main event. Bryan gets the upper hand and Kane tries to interfere, but Bryan takes him out and throws Orton over the ropes. He dives to the outside onto the two men and then drops Kane face first onto the steel steps. He gets back in the ring and Orton tries for an RKO, but Bryan counters and hits the running knee for the win. He leads the crowd in a Yes! chant but Orton gets back on the apron. Bryan fights him off but Kane attacks and the two gang up on him. Kane chokeslams him and the two pose over Bryan as the show goes off the air.
