Batista's Role at Elimination Chamber

According to the official website of the Target Center in Minneapolis, the site of WWE's Elimination Chamber PPV, Batista is being advertised as "appearing live" at the event. As we have been reporting, Batista will indeed be at Elimination Chamber, however his role at the PPV has yet to be confirmed. Currently rumored plans for Batista at the event call for him to face Alberto Del Rio.

It's also worth noting that Minneapolis is Brock Lesnar's hometown, however, he is not being listed on event advertisements, and is not expected to be at the PPV. As we previously reported, Lesnar is not expected to wrestle for WWE again until WrestleMania.
