Card subject to change. There are a lot of pay per views on WWE’s schedule and some of them are a bit more interesting than others. A lot of them have special themes to keep up the interest and that is what we are going to be seeing this weekend. WWE is presenting Elimination Chamber on Sunday, but now one of the matches is undergoing a pretty important change.

Last week on Monday Night Raw, the Raw Elimination Chamber was announced with Drew McIntyre defending the WWE Title against five former World Champions. The match was scheduled to include the Miz, Jeff Hardy, Sheamus, Randy Orton and AJ Styles, but WWE likes to go with the “card subject to change” concept. That was the case this week as a big change was made.

During this week’s Monday Night Raw, the Miz announced that he was removing himself from the Elimination Chamber so he could focus on the Money in the Bank briefcase and possibly cash it in after the match. As a result, a new entrant was needed, with Kofi Kingston defeating the Miz to earn the spot in the match. Had Miz won, John Morrison would have earned the spot instead.

Kingston has been a big deal in the Chamber before. Check out his most famous moment in the match:

Opinion: I’m not sure what this is going to mean for Sunday as I’m not sure how much of a difference Kingston is going to make in the match. Either way, less Miz is a good thing at this point as we have been waiting on him to cash in that briefcase for months now. It isn’t that interesting of a story and it has been a rather long road to get rid of the thing. Hopefully the match is a bit better now, because you can always try to make it stronger.
