There is talk in WWE of holding the WWE World Heavyweight Title up until the New Year’s Revolution PPV. They are thinking of doing a multiple-wrestler Elimination Chamber match.
The lineup for the match as it stands right now, would most likely be Triple H, Edge, Chris Benoit, Chris Jericho, and Randy Orton. There are no plans to have Batista in it right now, however this is just the first lineup, and things could change.
An Elimination Chamber match would most likely get a massive pop from the crowd in Puerto Rico, since there has never been one there.

Could it be that this will be Eric Bischoffs solution to the World Heavyweight Championship scenario...the Elimination Chamber? If so, then I have my reservations about it. I mean IMO, it should be decided between Benoit & Edge. I had a feeling that w/ next weeks Edge/Orton match beeing booked & HHH chair attack on Jericho & Benoit, that they might be straying away from that.
I say if this is a go, Batista is your 6th chamber participant & he somehow plays a hand in Triple H not winning the match.
My pick/choice to win? Edge. Get him over as the top heel by having him overcome the odds to do what he's never been able to do before & what (his character says) nobody has ever wanted him to achieve & has even held him back from achieving. Recent history has the odds of a face winning & going into WM as champion to be slim, so that could be very good (for Edge) or very bad (for us...meaning Triple H could win it).
Having Jericho & Benoit & Edge in there together presents some interesting possibilities. But in all likelyhood, Jericho is just a spot filler & would never be considered to win...unfortunately.
So I guess we'll wait & see what happens, but this is an interesting developement...
