NEW ORLEANS  —The self-professed “Real American” Jack Swagger made pre–Presidents Day fireworks in the brutal World Heavyweight Championship No. 1 Contender’s Elimination Chamber Match. Swagger emerged victorious over five other former World Champions to earn the right to challenge Alberto Del Rio and headline WrestleMania 29! (MATCH PHOTOS | EXCLUSIVE WITH SWAGGER AND COLTER)

Prior to the vicious battle, at least two people in the New Orleans Arena thought such an outcome was a foregone conclusion. Swagger and “great American” Zeb Colter laid down the gauntlet, belittling the patriotism of the people of the Big Easy and the entire nation before claiming, in no uncertain terms, that the pay-per-view would serve as the starting point for the journey to “Jack Swagger’s America.” Colter said that his compatriot “… was going to set things straight inside the Chamber and win one for the ‘good guys.’ … We the people!”

As his elite competition began to join them in “The Belly of the Beast,” however, Swagger’s American Dream looked as if it might quickly descend into a Chamber nightmare.

Only one thing was for certain in such an unpredictable showdown: the rules. Two Superstars would begin the match, with their four opponents locked inside individual pods. Every four minutes, a pod would open, releasing another competitor into the fray. If anyone was defeated at any point during the match, they would be eliminated from the match by pinfall or submission. And the carnage wouldn’t stop until only one Superstar remained.
