Elimination Chamber 2011 (also known as No Way Out 2011 in Germany) was a professional wrestling pay-per-view (PPV) event produced by World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE), which took place on February 20, 2011 at the Oracle Arena in Oakland, California. It was the second annual Elimination Chamber event.


Elimination Chamber featured professional wrestling matches that involve different wrestlers from pre-existing scripted feuds, plots, and storylines that will be played out on World Wrestling Entertainment's (WWE) primary television programs. Wrestlers will portray villains or heroes as they follow a series of events that build tension, and culminate in a wrestling match or series of matches.

After The Miz won the WWE Championship in November 2010, Raw commentator Jerry Lawler was given what was billed as his first WWE Championship match, after criticizing Miz's win by using his Money in the Bank briefcase while former champion Randy Orton was injured. He lost to Miz in a TLC match after his fellow commentator Michael Cole stopped Lawler from climbing the ladder. On the January 31 episode of Raw, the Raw General Manager announced a Raw Rumble match, to determine the WWE Championship contender at Elimination Chamber, while the losing participants would be entered into an Elimination Chamber match to determine who will face the WWE Champion at WrestleMania XXVII. The participants were CM Punk, Randy Orton, Sheamus, John Morrison, John Cena, Jerry Lawler, and R-Truth. Lawler last eliminated Sheamus to win the battle royal to earn himself the title match.

At the Royal Rumble, Alberto Del Rio won the eponymous match to earn himself a World Championship match at WrestlMania. He subsequently announced he would wrestle for the World Heavyweight Championship, held at the time by Edge. Edge at the time was embroiled in a feud with Dolph Ziggler and his on-screen ex-wife Vickie Guerrero, who was also scripted to be dating Ziggler. On the final episode of SmackDown before the PPV, Acting General Manager Guerrero stripped Edge of the championship and awarded it to Ziggler, only for Teddy Long, the real GM, to give Edge a return match which he won. After this, Long fired Ziggler leaving one of the six places in the Elimination Chamber match empty. The other participants are Kane, Rey Mysterio, Wade Barrett and Drew McIntyre.


Numbers in parentheses indicate the length of the match.
