Now it's time to start to clear the road to 'WrestleMania' XXX in New Orleans, but before WWE can do that the WWE Universe awaits the results of 'Elimination Chamber.' Here we preview the under card matches, and part two on Saturday we will look to the top of the card.

Batista ('14 Royal Rumble winner) versus Alberto Del Rio

Peter Schifani:

It would certainly not make any sense for Batista not to roll right through Del Rio on his way to the main event at 'WrestleMania' despite that he may get very winded in the process. Batista bombs ADR and clears his road ahead.

Mark Eddinger (Motorsports 101):

The winner of the Royal Rumble Match Batista will not lose on the Road to WrestleMania. Alberto Del Rio has no chance.

WWE Tag-Team Championship

New Age Outlaws (Road Dogg and Billy Gunn) versus (Jimmy and Jey) The Usos

Peter Schifani:

This seems like the prime time for the title to go to a regularly competing team and not the "middle aged" returnees. Expect the Usos to finally crack through and become the New WWE Tag-Team Champions!

Mark Eddinger (Motorsports 101):

The build for this match has been better than I thought it would be so I'll say that first. While I don't like that the New Age Outlaws came back and won the titles I feel they will retain them here and head to ;WrestleMania' as the champions.

Intercontinental Championship

Big E Langston (C) versus Jack Swagger

Peter Schifani:

While Swagger is now on a bit of short winning streak, we cannot see him overcoming the power of Big E for the I-C title. Langston defends and goes to 'WrestleMania' for his possible title for title match with US Champion Dean Ambrose.

Mark Eddinger (Motorsports 101):

With the emergence of Cesaro, the other half of The Real Americans with Jack Swagger, it makes this match intriguing to see if the WWE brass is going to push that tag-team. For this match though it seems likely that Big E will retain his title.

Darren Young versus Titus O'Neil

Peter Schifani:

If Titus really wants to make a statement in singles competition to eventually challenge for either the United States or Intercontinental titles then he needs to win over his former partner. He will do so here convincingly and may be even get that shot on the grandest stage of all.

Mark Eddinger (Motorsports 101):

This is an under card match that I am excited for. Titus O'Neil has a chance to be a real star so separating from Darren Young who has never impressed me was a good move and he should win this match.

Kick-off Match:

The Brotherhood (Cody Rhodes and Goldust) versus Ryback and Curtis Axel

Peter Schifani:

There cannot be that much interest in this match expect to possibly see if there are any cracks in the Brotherhood that would lead to the two facing off against each other at 'WrestleMania.' Blood is thicker than water and Cody and Goldie will win this one.

Mark Eddinger (Motorsports 101):

With many thinking WrestleMania could hold a head-to-head brother match up between Cody and Goldust one might think that a split has to come at some point soon if that will end up being a match on the big stage. Ryback and Curtis Axel are pretty much non-existent as far as being relevant right now though. I'll pick The Brotherhood to win.

Well there you go, we have looked at all of the under card matches for 'Elimination Chamber' as it's the last pay-per-view before WWE preps to put on there biggest event of any year, 'WrestleMania' in April. Tomorrow we will preview the top matches on the card for Sunday night's event.
