The Rock in Local Advertisements for WWE’s Elimination Chamber PPV

The RockSeveral readers have sent in word that commercials aired during a New Orleans NBA game, advertising Dwayne "the Rock" Johnson for the WWE's upcoming Elimination Chamber pay-per-view. 

Elimination Chamber is being hosted at the New Orleans Arena on February 17, 2013. 

While this may indicate a creative plan for the Rock to win the WWE Championship from CM Punk at the Royal Rumble, at this time any speculation is premature. It is just as likely that the Rock will attend the event to begin promoting a match for this year's WrestleMania, or may even be an attempt by WWE to "swerve" the fans, and draw attention to the Royal Rumble itself.
