The WWE Elimination Chamber for 2013 is done and dusted, with the Rock triumphing over CM Punk in the main event to set up a rematch with John Cena.

Much was learned from the huge pay-per-view night, yet many important questions still remain about several wrestlers and their immediate future in the competition.

Here are the biggest questions left unanswered from the Elimination Chamber.


What's going on with Ryback?

Another pay-per-view night saw another defeat for Ryback in the Elimination Chamber—this time he was dominated by Roman Reigns.

Ryback left Hell in a Cell and Survivor Series with defeats, but he still left with the hope that he wasn't that far off from his peak—losing in ways that still kept him looking good. However, pinned by a spear in the Elimination Chamber didn't make him look good at all.

The loss could make him turn heel and become a possible challenger for John Cena in the future, but either way, something has to be done here with Ryback. His losing streak simply has to end, yet what will be done to fix it still remains to be seen.


Is The Miz's shoulder still an issue?

The Miz's shoulder injury coming into this clash was no secret, with Antonio Cesaro injuring it when the pair clashed on Monday Night Raw.

Cesaro looked to exploit that shoulder again in this one, and despite some early success, found himself on the brink of defeat before an accidental knee from The Miz handed him the most unlikely of victories on the night.

The issue about the shoulder, though, could still be an obstacle going forward for The Miz, with no real answer given as to how the injury is affecting him now.

Don't rule out seeing it come into play later on down the road.


Can The Rock beat John Cena?

The notion of The Rock beating CM Punk in the 2013 WWE Elimination Chamber and setting up a rematch with John Cena really wasn't that surprising. In fact, for many fans at least, the outcome of the rematch was the most expected result of the PPV.

Yet, what many had hoped to see was just how good The Rock could be and whether or not he would be able to beat Cena when they clash at WrestleMania.

And from this event anyway, the answer to that was unclear.

Yes, The Rock did win, but he did look very gassed at times and certainly wasn't as dominant as he has been in past years. He does have that huge victory over Cena at WrestleMania 28 in the bag as we all know, but whether he can repeat that performance with a huge win in WrestleMania 29 still remains to be seen.
