WWE Champion John Cena def. Kurt Angle, Shawn Michaels, Kane, Chris Masters and Carlito to retain (Elimination Chamber Match)

WWE Champion John Cena was used to having the odds stacked against him, but one thing has always remained -- The Champ was still here. Cena never backed down from anything or anyone, but he also never had to defend the WWE Championship inside the Elimination Chamber. In order to walk away from New Year's Revolution with the gold, he would have to defeat five men inside the unforgiving Elimination Chamber. To make matters worse, Cena was the second man in the match, meaning he would have to go the distance to win.

Shawn Michaels was at the same disadvantage. After losing a match to Kane the week before, Mr. McMahon told HBK that he would have to be the first man inside the Elimination Chamber. Kane, on the other hand, had earned the right to be the last man inside the Elimination Chamber.

Earlier in the evening, Carlito found Chris Masters and convinced The Masterpiece to form an alliance and take everyone else out in the Chamber and then fight to see who was the best man.

HBK and Cena didn't waste any time going at it. They both tried to use the Elimination Chamber's steel chains as weapons, but they were both able to avoid it. Carlito came in next and was on fire. But it was nothing compared to when Kurt Angle entered next. The merciless wrestling machine delivered German suplexes to anything that moved. Then Angle immediately sought out Shawn Michaels and suplexed him over the ropes and onto the steel. He then slingshotted HBK into the steel chains, busting him wide open, and threw him face-first into one of the Chamber's glass doors. Angle went back into the ring and hooked Carlito in the ankle lock, but Masters was the next to enter and made the save.

Angle then moved on to John Cena and got him in the ankle lock as well. But the Showstopper popped up from out of nowhere and leveled Angle with Sweet Chin Music for the 1-2-3. Angle was shockingly the first one eliminated from the Elimination Chamber.

Kane finally made his entrance and started handing out chokeslams like they were pieces of candy on Halloween. Carlito and Masters showed that their alliance was strong, though, as they teamed up on the Big Red Monster. With Kane down, Masters press-slammed Carlito onto the fallen monster and they both covered him for the pin and the second elimination.

The final four was Masters, Carlito, HBK and Cena. After Masters had DDT'd  Cena on the steel floor of the Chamber, the Champ was also busted wide open. HBK also went after Cena and hit the flying elbow from the top rope and followed it up with Sweet Chin Music. Before he could make the cover, though, Carlito swooped in and hit his inverted swinging neckbreaker for the surprise pin.

Carlito and Masters' alliance had proven to be very fruitful, but all good things must come to an end. Carlito told Masters to get Cena in the Master Lock and the Masterpiece obliged. But then Carlito turned on his partner and delivered a low blow to Masters and rolled him up for the pin. Cena came right back with a roll up for his own on Carlito and pinned him for the win. The Champ had once again defied the odds. But unfortunately for him, his night was not over yet.
