FRESNO, Calif. – In a grueling Elimination Chamber Wild Card Battle Royal announced by SmackDown General Manager Theodore Long, Santino Marella earned the right to battle Wade Barrett, Big Show, The Great Khali, Intercontinental Champion Cody Rhodes and World Heavyweight Champion Daniel Bryan in the SmackDown Elimination Chamber Match.
The Italian Stallion surpassed competitors from Raw, SmackDown and WWE NXT to win the right to replace Randy Orton – who is out of action with a concussion – in Sunday’s Elimination Chamber clash for the World Heavyweight Championship. In the bout’s final, tense moments, Santino sent Raw’s David Otunga tumbling over the top rope to get the victory.
