I do not see many surprises coming out of this PPV. There was an initial rumor that Christian was just thrown in the match as a spot-filler with the possibility of him getting ousted if there was a better option. That topic faded for a couple weeks, but it is once again at the forefront. This leaves the WWE with a few options to replace him. There are four realistic options, one possible but not probable, and one far-fetched. The realistic options would be one of the three preshow commentators, which comprises of Rey Mysterio, the Miz and Mark Henry, or the Big Show. The possible but not probable option would be Brock Lesnar, and of course the far-fetched option is CM Punk. Other than that, nothing else appears to be deviating from what should be expected. One thing I am looking forward to is Cesaro being highlighted in the chamber match. This could be a good launchpad for an even bigger push.
Batista vs. Randy Orton is still slated for WrestleMania 30, so expect Randy Orton to retain the title. Especially after looking weak during his gauntlet against the chamber participants. As far as the tag team and Intercontinental titles, the Usos have a better chance of winning than Jack Swagger does. Swagger just does not have enough momentum to hold the IC title, but the Usos are the hottest tag team on the roster right now. If the Usos do not win, I can see them winning a number one contender's match on a Raw leading to WM 30 and having their big moment at the PPV. The other thought that has been discussed is having Swagger defeat Big E, leading to a title match against Cesaro at WM. Although that could work, Big E's push should not be thrown out, as he should be invested in more than Swagger.
