With WWE Champion CM Punk joining the Raw announce team, 10 competitors from last night’s Elimination Chamber Matches fought for the chance to face Punk on The Grandest Stage of Them All. One of the biggest threats was eliminated first when The Great Khali was tossed from the ring. Next to go was The Miz, as well as his dream of headlining WrestleMania. Then, Wade Barrett and R-Truth were both eliminated by Santino Marella. (WADE BARRETT INJURY UPDATE) Big Show eliminated Doph Ziggler by tossing him onto the announce table. Out next was Kofi Kingston, who was sent flying from the ring by Jericho.
The final four were Big Show, Santino Marella, Cody Rhodes and Chris Jericho. First to go out of the final group was Santino, who was eliminated by Rhodes. Then it was down to two when Show eliminated Rhodes. Then as The World's Largest Athlete appeared ready to put away Jericho as the two tangled on the ropes, Rhodes interfered, pulling Big Show from the ring apron, sealing the win for Jericho.
After the bout, Punk entered the ring to stare down his No. 1 Contender. When the WWE Champion offered a handshake to Jericho, he refused and walked out of the ring. (WRESTLEMANIA PREVIEW)

Triple H accepted
Undertaker’s WrestleMania challenge; two to square off in Hell in Cell (WATCH)
After calling the last year hell because of uncertainty, Undertaker called out Triple H. Saying he was shocked Triple H said “no” to his WrestleMania challenge, The Phenom continued to push for an answer.
At first Triple H said, “I’m sorry, but the answer is no” and walked away from the ring.
But as the WWE COO walked up the exit ramp, Undertaker finally got what he wanted by saying: “You know Shawn (Michaels) was always better than you.”
With those biting words, Triple H removed his jacket and tie and strutted back to the ring to confront The Deadman. “I can do what Shawn couldn’t do … I can finish it. I know it. You know it ... You want this? You want WrestleMania? You want it all to come to a head? You want an end? You got it!”
But before he left, The Game added one more thing: “We do this. We go all the way. No return. No uncertainty. No excuses. The Streak ends. The era ends. You get your end. We do this, we go all the way. I will face you at WrestleMania under one condition … Hell in a Cell.”
After finally getting what he wanted, Undertaker shot one more ominous gaze at his foe and exited the ring. (WRESTLEMANIA PREVIEW)
