With Payback now in the books, all eyes are now focused on the special second PPV for May this year in which the Elimination Chamber will be making its return.

We will be treated to two Chamber matches with two different titles on the line and a lot of history set to be made.

For the first time ever, the Intercontinental Championship will be defended in a Chamber match while this years event will also have the first ever tag team chamber match.

The Tag Team Championships will be defended in a Chamber match too and it was tonight announced the teams who will be involved.

Champions the New Day will take on Cesaro and Tyson Kidd, the Ascension, the Lucha Dragons, Los Matadores and will feature the return of the Prime Time Players.

As for the other Elimination Chamber match, the vacant Intercontinental Championship is on the line and the six competitors have now been named.

As was previously expected, Sheamus, King Barrett and Dolph Ziggler will be involved in the match whilst the expected inclusion of Neville has clearly been changed.

Also listed in the match is Ryback and R-Truth with either man being a suitable Intercontinental Champion.

It has been expected that Sheamus will emerge victorious in the match and claim the title, but the sixth inclusion now puts that into doubt.

The Bulgarian Brute, Rusev has been included in the match and will now pose a big threat to everyone else locked in the chamber.

Rusev has now made a big change by officially leaving Lana and it now goes without saying just what the immediate future holds for the Bulgarian Brute.

If Sheamus is now going to win the title then it will mean that Rusev will have to be pinned or made to submit by someone who isn't John Cena.

That has never been done before and it will certainly be interesting to see what the WWE are planning for Elimination Chamber.

Who is the next champion

As with the majority of matches like this, there are several names who are already expected to lose and aren't really being considered as potential winners.

Sheamus was the favourite but the question now becomes who will actually enter the match as most likely to claim the title.
