With this month's WWE pay-per-view only a few weeks away, the WWE is rapidly filling up the spots for the event's titular Elimination Chamber match. 

The latest addition to the Elimination Chamber is none other than the "World's Strongest Man," Mark Henry

Henry joins Daniel Bryan and Rey Mysterio in this year's Elimination Chamber match for the World Heavyweight Championship. 

Recently making his return to the WWE, it looks like Mark Henry is back and ready for action. 

Despite a tepid return during the latest edition of Monday Night Raw, it looks like Henry will be thriving instead on the WWE's blue brand. 

Henry earned the right to be part of the WHC Elimination Chamber match after an impressive post-match attack on the Great Khali—inducting the so-called "Punjabi Playboy" into his Hall of Pain.

After Henry demanded to be added to the World Heavyweight Championship Elimination Chamber match, SmackDown's general manager, Booker T, came out announcing that Henry would have to defeat Randy Orton for a spot in the EC match. 

In what appears to have been a typical Mark Henry match, the "World's Strongest Man" defeated the "Viper" Randy Orton, thus allowing him to compete in the WHC Elimination Chamber match. 

Of note is the fact that Orton had just recently been announced on a WWE.com article as a participant in the match. It remains to be seen whether the third-generation WWE superstar finds a way back into the Elimination Chamber match. 

Also interesting is the fact that the typical Elimination Chamber match features six competitors, thus leaving three spots left.
